At the beginning of "The Secret Doctrine," vol.II, HPB quotes John vii,16.
"My doctrine is not mine, but his that sent me." The statements aren't
necessarily hers. The fact we are unable to understand what HPB says, or to
understand the teachings, is a real challenge to try and ferret out the
meaning. The more we work at it, the clearer it can become. We all see it
in different ways, each seeing only a part of the picture, the rest of it
being as you so well put it, "obscure." So the obscurity becomes because we
are only able to see a part of the whole?
