Blessings to you all..We could spend the rest of our lives arguing if Blavatsky was the right choice but what purpose will this really serve us?.. For the time is NOW. Let's preoccupy our minds to the good of what we can do for our brother's and sister's for today. Let's also remember that such arguments come from our ego trying to prove or preserve thought that comes from our personalities, that are not us. Let's move forward with such energy being placed on the movement for what we can do to better serve and remember this "Children of Light, as ye go forth into the world, seek to render gentle service to all that lives."
Much much Love to you whom wrote this and to all,

Blavatsky confessed to Solovieff quite bluntly that the phenomena were fraudulent, adding that one must deceive men in order to rule them (Washington, 1995).
