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?
