Carlos, Adeptship and a Question

Carlos, you write:

"Presenting Adeptship not as a fact which occurs at the higher 
levels of consciousness, but downgrading it as something related 
to 'personal names', physical personalities and portraits  such an 
action closes the door to a higher perception of things, for 
thousands of ill-advised people."

"If the first idea of the Masters, in the mind of a neophyte, is 
drawn at the personalistic level, the whole learning process starts 
from illusion and from a narrow view of life."

So Carlos, are you saying that H.P. Blavatsky herself is guilty of 
downgrading Adeptship?

She gave out in her writings and in what she said much information 
about the Masters, that is, she gave out: 

"'personal names', physical personalities and portraits" 

We find her in 1890 even giving to her esoteric students copies of 
the portraits of the Masters.  And she even had a copy of Master 
Morya's portrait on her desk for all to see.

Isn't this focusing on "the personalistic level" as you like to 
phrase it?

If we believe what you are telling us, then H.P.B. is doing the very 
thing that you say should not be done!!

By giving out these portraits wasn't she performing indeed 
an "action" which you declare "closes the door to a higher 
perception of things"?

Was she doing in effect what you say should not be done? That is,

"If the first idea of the Masters, in the mind of a neophyte, is 
drawn at the personalistic level, the whole learning process starts 
from illusion and from a narrow view of life."

By allowing her esoteric students to have portraits (surely this is 
on the personalistic level), HPB was doing what you say shouldn't be 
done!!

Hmmmmm?

Too bad you weren't living back then, then you could have warned 
HPB .... of her folly ....

And why was the Master Morya helping the German artist to paint KH's 
portrait?  And the Master was helping the artist in a crowded room 
of people.

So wasn't the Master in effect doing what you say shouldn't be done??
