Re: Theos-World Did D.K. write the Secret Doctrine?

I wonder if this ties in with our astrological signs?

          I also think the work came mainly from K.H. and Morya. And the two

but Morya works constantly with K.H. , it is said, even today.
My opinion is, the link of the Masters with the T.S. could only be
established again if some things were different. And among them,
perhaps Theosophy itself. I base this point of view in K.H.´s letter
in which he clearly states that the T.S. had turned to a cult and he
would not therefore influence it anymore. As he was the one who
strived for the acceptance of the idea of the formation of the T.S.
and the most enthusiastic of the Masters on the T.S., it is obvious
that along with him probably Morya and the others left also.
It is interesting that the Venetian Master is so little known and
mentioned in Theosophical literature. Christina has given in this
forum some information concerning him and the 3rd Ray, which I found
particularly exact. I don´t know where she got that from. It seems the
Venetian has strong relation to music and also to colours or art of
any type. 
Below are some observations on the Rays and elements I received from
a psychic and found logical:

RAY 2- ELEMENT AIR - Wisdom, ? 
RAY 3- ELEMENT EARTH - Love and Mind, mental awareness and mental dextery.
RAY 4- ELEMENT WATER - Love as Beauty; emotional balance.

The other Rays have not been given me their corresponding elements.

copy of the afore-said certificate. You will find them both of use on
the day when you shall, as will happen without your asking, receive
from the hands of the very person to whom the certificate was given,
the original for the purpose of allowing you to copy it; and then you
can verify the correctness of this presently forwarded copy. And it
may then be well to indicate to those wishing to know what portions in
The Secret Doctrine have been copied by the pen of [H.P.B's name] into
its pages, though without quotation marks, from my own manuscript and
perhaps from ---, though the last is more difficult from the rarity of
his known writing and greater ignorance of his style. All this and

I noticed this principally in the morning before she had commenced to
work. I slept on the couch in her study after she had withdrawn for
the night and the couch stood only a few feet from her desk. I
remember well my astonishment one morning when I got up to find a
great many pages of foolscap covered with that blue pencil handwriting
lying on her own manuscript, at her place on her desk. How these pages
got there I do not know, but I did not see them before I went to
sleep, and no person had been bodily in the room during the night, for
I am a light sleeper. [Reminiscences, 112/3]"

certain groups of the devas of the ethers, who are the healing devas,
and who thus collaborate with him in the work of healing some of the
physical ills of humanity. He it was who dictated a large part of that
momentous book The Secret Doctrine, and who showed to H. P. Blavatsky
many of the pictures, and gave her much of the data that is to be
found in that book."

Maybe it was to water down the Masters Morya and Khoot Hoomi. Or
perhaps Alice A. Bailey was under the influence of someone calling
himself D.K. who had this agenda.
> And when I am myself, through my inner researches, as well lead to
the conclusion, that most of what was written in the Secret Doctrine
passed from Morya one way or the other through to H. P. Blavatsky, I
cannot help saying that Alice A. Bailey made a mistake here.
> Remember, that H. P. Blavatsky already then when writing The Secret
Doctrine was a woman, who was capeable of dematerialising and
rematerialising her physical body when in need. H. S. Olcott testified
to this in his Diary. He wrote that it had occurred several times.
