"Vainly do your modern seers and their prophetesses, creep into every cleft and crevice without outlet or continuity they chance to see; and still more vainly, when once within do they lift up their voices and loudly cry: 'Eureka! We have gotten a Revelation from the Lord!' - - for verily have they nothing of the kind. They have disturbed but bats [elementals, unprogressed Planetaries] , less blind than their intruders; who, feeling them flying about, mistake them as often for angels â as they too, have wings! Doubt not, my friend: it is but from the very top of those 'adamantine rocks' of ours, not at their foot, that one is ever enabled to perceive the whole Truth, by embracing the whole limitless horizon...."

Subject: Theos-World Re: Annie Besant on Her Messiah
Daniel's derogatory remarks of calling Messiah related things as craze are not appropriate. Because of such propaganda against Messiah it will become more difficult for people to recognize and accept true messiah, even if he really comes.
Another thing is if messiahs did not come, then Blavatsky's doctrine becomes false. Given the state of ignorance in which humanity is, it is more logical to assume that messiahs will come for every one or two thousand years in future.
Also world is going through such fast change and going to an entirely new level of evolution. To me great changes and progress in spiritual field seems more logical. Theosophical Society itself was great milestone.
However, sometimes I feel that when Theosophical teachings are not yet digested by much of humanity, what other teaching can be given at this point?

That was her mistake, and a pretty grave one, and big enough to have us reminded of KH's critique of her. In those days I think it was only K, CWL, Scott and Hodson who were connected.
> G.S. Arundale had published a book 'Nirvana', which was praised by Leadbeater and Annie Besant. Do you want to say that Arundale reached that state without having connection with any of the Masters? And there are perhaps more indications which tell that Annie Besant and Leadbeater considered Arundale as one in contact with the Masters.
