Re Aveline Angle, HPB Letters
Carlos, your positive-thinking,
polyannic attitude really gets under
my skin sometimes. Do you really think
every bad thing is only a "mistake?"
(repost below) People do bad things
because that is what some people are
- they love it, and will not switch
over to your viewpoint no matter how
foolish you make yourself. What is
right and left-hand paths? Go down
to those barios in big-city Brazil
and start talking brotherhood. You
will still get robbed, laughed at,
and maybe killed, if foolish enough.
(People of course also make "mistakes"
continually as well.)
"...We are working on expanding the
collection of letters now available at:
....We plan to also include the
controversial HPB letters to Mr. Aksakoff
and Mr. Solovyoff. When this material
is posted, we will also include a link
to Jake Jaqua's helpful summary questioning
some of these letters and their content...."
Am I being bought out? Ha. They
are just Notes. Something also useful
is Sordo's long letter to you on the
HPB Letters (Maybe Edmonton has this
online.) and also many of the comments
Carlos has made.

<Of course Pasadena TS must have made mistakes. Yet we must go beyond them and look ahead.
<Mistakes are important for the lessons they teach. Once we get the lessons learned, it is better to move on.
<There is, of course, a difference between pointing to mistakes and the lessons from them, and merely using mistakes (sometimes imaginary) to disqualify those who think diferently from us.
<Looking ahead to the rest of 21st century, the Pasadena TS and Point Loma groups (those groups following the line set by Emmet Small for instance) have much more in common than otherwise. The same can be said with regard to the ULT and Blavatsky/Masters students in the Adyar TS.
<Adyar TS' mistakes should be discussed with a view to changes for the better which can take place -- that is, learning from mistakes.
<Esoteric Philosophy is not quite in words, but beyond them, and
Theosophy without an open mind and a broad horizon can be no real Theosophy.
