You prove a point that I have been pondering on for quite some time now. I
call it "intuitive extension." It goes to all students who demand a straight
reading of the so called original or unedited texts of the SD or other HPB
works. If all one does is read her writings and re-articulate it, slightly
modified, to fit the points they are trying to make, I think they fall short
of what is possible when in the presence of inspired material. The purpose of
inspirational material to inspire one to transcend the limitations of
linearity and form. When one is inspired, one can be in touch with their
higher self and its intuitive faculties. That is shown most powerfully by
your rendering of the Proem in the SD. In my opinion we are called upon to
constantly intuit the contemporary meaning of ancient wisdom philosophies.
The unending quotes of chapter and verse by HPB or any theosophical writer
does not necessarily lead to emerging intuitive insights if one is not free
to respond to the meaning of what they see in their own particular fashion.
WHAT DOES IT MEAN NOW! That seems to be the real trick to understanding the
value of sacred wisdom. Your interpretation of the science within the proem
is a perfect case in point. Thanks.
