I don't intend to be contentious, but do you have personal experience of
these different sorts of evolution, and can you explain it in your *own*
words? I suspect your meaning is really something like "According to
the teaching given by HPB in the Secret Doctrine (which I [Dal] believe
is true ...."). If I am right, it would be a fairer way of getting your views
and feelings across. As your post stands, it reads like the doctrine of a
sect or church, inviolate, certain and adbsolute truth, and brings
immediately to mind Doss's post re the uneducated and ignorant, who
would *certainly* IMO, believe what you have said was dogma, and
was beleived by all theosophists of all shades, just because they
describe themselves as theosophists.
I do this, but I no more take the SD of the writings of HPB or any other
writer as "gospel truth" - any more than I take the teachings of the
gospels as gospel *truth*.
