But Chuck, HPB sat outside the Victorian system and in fact mocked it through its religion and its social morays - smoking being a minor but prime example of not conforming to the 'ladylike" victorian image.

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

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?
