Too boisterous....??
To "theosophists", who are in their seventies or eighties, one can be 
boisterous - or a black magician - if one asks a sinple question.
I have made the experiences in the various groups, which are dominated by 
women - that espicially theosophical women fight the spirit, whereever they 
detect him.
They don't like to think and don't want other people think. They like no 
questions and they like no deeds.
Just emotional enthusing, blind belief and waiting for a master.
In other words: a replacement church.

Seems a strange karma that theosophists of today obviously need to survive 
the organized theosophy, which in most parts is destructive and directed to 
the lower self.

Humble me was invited into Theosophy in '75, then
worked from '76 till '80 as a volunteer in the
European Headquarters in The Hague; then I was sent
away with the reason I was too boisterous.
In fact I had devoted my career to become a printer
and work for spreading Theosophy ( I was 16 in '75).
Things worked out the worst and those people from The
Hague calling themselves my friends had just left me
alone in my disappointments, I was taken into a
nuthouse afterwards in 1981 but survived. If it wasn't
for my real Self I would have become the worst
adversary of the Theosophical Society after this
period of my life, but thanks to mySelf I remained
into the same spirit of Theosphy...
