Questioning authenticity

Probably there is no final word on this issue: how authentic is the 
work of HPB. Perhaps the final answer to the question lies in the 
heart of evey reader. Does this work speak to you or does it not? If 
so, it is pure gold. If not, search elsewhere. But it seems somehow 
unnecessary to accuse HPB of misdeeds when the very process by which 
she attained her information is a mystery that few have plumbed, the 
more obviously because of the misinterpretations that abound. If the 
work does not inspire the student, is it not possible that it might 
have a very different effect on another student? Therefore why impute 
negativity? We never know when we ourselves will find ourselves in 
the middle of a reevaluation of even the seemingly most obvious and 
simple concept. That's with life is, after all, constant change. Why 
not be respectful of that which inspires others, even if it does not 
inspire us? Isn't that what we would want others to do?
