I think it's good. Very often the "guidance" in theosophical groups 
makes one too narrow-minded, he is made to believe that all that 
Blavatsky wrote is true and Bailey is wrong, or the reverse - it's 
doesn't matter.

For bringing these two interpretations of "ageless wisdom" together it 
would be wery well to study lectures on Bhagavad Gita by T. Subba Row.
Another good book is anonymous "Some thoughts on Gita" (was very rare 
but recently reprinted first since 1893, as I heard). Also see the 
last section of "Man: fragments of forgotten history" by Chatterji 
where some views about hierarchy close to those of Bailey were 
published for 2 years before "Secret Doctrine"

As for quotations which were presented to you they are rather 
selective; there are interpretations of Christ as principle in Bailey 
books, as you probably know, and there are hints in "Secret of Buddha" 
section in the Secret Doctrine vol.3 that Jesus as a person really 
existed (though not in 1-33 A.D.) and was overshadowed by some higher
