ON "LOWER NATURE"
Jan 02, 2007 12:53 PM
Thanks. I will take your short note as an excuse to submit you a
couple of ideas.
People often talk about "lower nature" as if it could not and should
not share one's inner life. As if it were intrinsically useless or
even harmful. It is not so, at all.
In fact, our "lower nature" is but the physical and emotional
foundations on which we must build our path, or our Walk along the
Path. Our "lower nature" must share the sacredness and the
sacrifice of the Path. It is not an enemy, but a friend of the
Pilgrim. It is the House, the outer Temple. Hence a good diet, the
right kind of exercise, moderation in all things, etc.
Our personal and animal nature must live on their own levels and in
their own way each step of ours along the path.
What I am doing today, as I ask whether the several testmimonies on
frauds done by Caldwell are correct, is something much more simple.
The question is that, if Caldwell is a fraud, that may be the
explanation for his apparent psychological fixation on fake letters
ascribed to HPB. Or his fixation about the ULT.
After months attacking the ULT, there was a brief interval for
Christmas and New Year and now Caldwell, as predictable as ever,
comes back with the same old stuff around false letters ascribed to
HPB. This has been among his main themes in 2007, as you know.
My hypothesis is that if Caldwell can renounce his own frauds
(David Green, Terry Hobbes and so on) he will forget the slanders against the
founder of the movement. But I am not sure about that.
The main point is though that, in Occultism, we must be aware of
what goes on at all seven levels of consciousness, with their
sublevels included in the picture, too.
Of course Theosophy is about Ethics, so if Daniel is a fraud he will
have a problem sooner or later.
