Martin, I agree. If the new "Torch-Bearer" showed himself
or herself today, a few theosophists would accept, but the
majority would not. I suspect that even if this Messenger
walked on water, more than a few Theosophists would
shout "Black Magic" and denounce him/her. This is
not a good climate for a Messenger, IMHO, and any such
person would surely know this and keep a low profile.
The collective need, which karmically draws in such a
Messenger, is simply not great enough. HPB' life
demonstrates the abuse that such a Messenger would likely
receive, but during her day the need was great.
