With respect Perry, what precedes this is "if you align yourself with the teacher"? Here I believe HPB is talking about a) our higher self b) a higher evolutionary being. No matter how one feels about Leadbeater, one cannot dream that he was any higher evolved than you or I. Where does it say that being clairvoyant makes you spiritual, didn't HPB warn of going down this path?

The key word in the above statement to me is "unjustly".
