Theos-World Re: Pablo AND Frank on discrepancies between Purucker & Blavatsky

Cass, I think what you said is very important to bear in mind, 
because when in a movement that attitude of being "more interested in 
whom to read rather than on what the teachings mean to them" spread, 
it is the end of the movement, at least in its inner life.

necessarily her successors but messengers who reinforced the 
teachings given.  For me, Purucker was able to translate teachings 
from the Secret Doctrine that I found too abtuse for my intellect.  
After reading Purucker I felt that I then understood what HPB was 
getting at.

has become academic, scholarstic and historical.  Whenever I post an 
article as I recently did it receives no response.  This tells me 
that many theosophists are more interested in whom to read rather 
than on what the teachings mean to them.  I must at the same time 
make it clear that I have been helped immensely by several posters 
who have shared their knowledge with me and have been able to steer 
me in the right direction - these are few and far between and no who 
they are.

following the steps of organized religions which always leads to 
division and confrontation.  Spirituality and Religion have been 
confused, to be religious is not necessarily being spiritual.  My 
thinking is that the work has to be done by each soul which might 
mean belonging to all religions, at different times, coming to the 
conclusion I imagine that truth has to be found after wading through 
many lifetimes of disappointment and disallusionment.  And until we 
are taken under the wing by a higher evolved soul our progress will 
be as slow as a herd of turtles.  In the meantime all I can do is 
to "do unto others as they would do unto me", and even that is a 
challenge in day to day existence.
