I am saying that HPB was clearly wrong and when she said that she was merely
being a person of her time and culture. She was being a good Victorian,
wanting to create a social system for other people to live in. It was a sort of
weird blip in the zeitgeist.
As to how, there are any number of systems, Zen coming to mind immediately.

Assuming you are making a serious statement, may I suggest that
behavior is the path to enlightenment? When HPB said that (and I
paraphrase) occultism is altruism, wasn't she suggesting that it is
how we behave more than what we read that determines our progress in
the evolution of consciousness? How does a person attain
enlightenment in a material form without regard to behavior?
