accidental initiation will do that to you.

This is the fundamental difference between Christianity with it's Doctrine
of Atonement and Theosophy with its 'boot-strap' philosophy. If i'm in the
TS which one do you think I believe? Or have you confused someone else
posting with mine?

Are you asking me? I'm nuts.

I don't expect any master to arrive on my doorstep. I'm not going to tread
on the toes of the Master worshippers though. I did read the SD reference
and once again I don't really understand what point your trying to make.
BTW, is HPB a Master? Mistress?

"To be shaken out of the ruts of ordinary perception, to be shown for a few
timeless hours the outer and inner world, not as they appear to an animal
obsessed with survival or to a human being obsessed with words and notions,
but as they are apprehended, directly and unconditionally, by Mind at Large
-- this is an experience of inestimable value to everyone and especially to
the intellectual."
- Aldous Huxley, "The Doors of Preception"
