Tillett, Adyar & Leadbeater
Aug 07, 2006 08:47 AM
This, below, is another posting which can hardly be described as aggressive or hurtful to any persons who are, as we all are, truth-seekers.
This is the difference between blind belief and search for true knowledge, and I am confident that Pedro and other Adyar TS members will see that.
A student of Occultism does not develop a personal attachment to opinions or, at least, once confronted with facts, he will (painfully or otherwise) accept them.
Because Occult Science cannot be found in belief-systems.
The Masters made that most clear in a number of occasions.
Now, again, there are other mistakes besides those of the Adyar TS, of course.
Best regards, Carlos.
