Writing about Emanuel Swedenborg, "the great Swedish Theosophist," 
H.P. Blavatsky comments that he "claimed to pass at will into that 
state when the Inner Self frees itself entirely from every physical 
sense, and lives and breathes in a world where every secret of 
Nature is an open book to the Soul-eye."

But she adds:

"Unless one obtains exact information and the right method, one's 
visions, however correct and true in Soul-life, will ever fail to 
get photographed in our human memory, and certain cells of the brain 
are sure to play havoc with our remembrances." The Secret Doctrine, 
1897, Vol. III, p. 425

"...none but the logician, the investigator, the dauntless
explorer should meddle with books like this. Such delvers
after truth have the courage of their opinions."
H.P. Blavatsky

"...Contrast alone can enable us to appreciate things at
their right value; and unless a judge compares notes and
hears both sides he can hardly come to a correct decision."
H.P. Blavatsky

" the world mental as in the world spiritual each man
must progress by his own efforts. The writer cannot do the
reader's thinking for him, nor would the latter be any the
better off if such vicarious thought were possible..."
H.P. Blavatsky
