Hi Govert, hi all,
HPB states several times, that and why exact occult figures and numbers are not be given out, which is the same as with the Jesus of the bible, whom the editors of the gospels lay similar arguments into his mouth.
Here is only one example:
"For the figures belonging to the Occult calculations cannot be given â as the Masters have many times declared â outside the circle of pledged chelas, and not even these can break the rules."
Comparing her 5th sub-race quote with her other quote of the cataclysm in 16,000 years, it is quite clear that with dead-letter reading one comes not to the truth.
In the preface to the "Key" she states, that theosophy is not for the mental lazy, i.e., those who study theosophy are forced to think and by thinking they can understand theosophy and the the path becomes the aim.
Those, who do not think, but believe blindly and/or use theosophy for their selfing ends and pose as teachers, teaching innocent people pseudo-theosophy, can be found guilty by a Mr Watson of being unfit to understand the message. One, who is unfit to understand the message, cannot be the messenger. So the message and the messanger are always a unit.
Besant sat at the feet of the world teacher, but did not know her. Ok, there must be always somebody, who plays the role of the bad cop. But sad for Annie.
HPB spoke often about the coming world wars, as Franz Hartmann reports. She warned against an "Empire in embryo", which would bring suffering over the world.
Annie and Charlie in their exaggerated patriotism for the their country and the Crown believed it was the land, where the His Majesty's grandson ruled.
There was but a little error in their calculations. Although Germany was nearly destroyed by the Jeusits, as HPB states, she was in the mean of time able to recover soon and a lot of genius souls came in and Bismarck with the advise of an adept in the Black Forest,a s HPB states, was able to reu-nite many German states in 1871 (without f.e. of Holland, which decided after the Jesuit separation in 1648 from the Reich). So, when Annie joint the TS in 1889, the new Empire was already born (if this picture fits, because it was never really away), therefore Germany was no embryo.
That HPB could have meant another empire with evil aims (my working thesis), was obviously not conceivable for the two astral surfers.
Occult doctrines misunderstood - new karma created, more suffering for many, but the order of the Maha-Chohan fulfilled, not to interfer with karma and give secret outs.
So karma went its usual way without much barriers. But had theosophists uplifted the thoughts of the masses, karma might have been checkmated.

I still do not quite understand this 'blinds' bussiness, therefore I
do not know how to agree or disagree with your statement.

that some remain Celtic while some are Teutonic, perhaps because this
would have been seen as overt racism when it was written - even though
as Theosophists we know this not to be true.
