I seem to recall that HPB said that when the Masters acted through
her, for their teachings, and the letters she conveyed to others,
these teachings picked up things from her own consciousness,
especially if the Master was not in good command of the language that
was being written in.
She said that she had to get the throught, and then form it in
English, in her mind, to put it down on paper. So those teachings that
came through her picked up a great deal of her beliefs and her culture
mixed in with the culture of the Masters.
If AAB was getting the same messages, in the same way, then one could
expect the teachings and writings to be tinged with the language,
thought patterns, and background of AAB when they appeared on paper.
So, it would seem to me that the criticism of those who knew and
worked with HPB that the new teachings were not identical with the
thought patterns of HPB, would be quite valid, and in fact, if what
HPB said about the transmission was true, if the thought patterns were
identical with those of HPB, you could strongly suggest that it was
bogus. If, on the other hand, it was different, and mirrored the
patterns of AAB, it would be possible that it came from a similar
Is it possible that the piece byAlice Leighton Cleather and Basil
Crump is a "spin" job by those who wish to deify HPB. The charge that
there was a group in the TS that wanted to deify HPB was made by
Olcott, as justification for his writing of The Old Diary Leaves. This
was, of course, before his death, so he was aware of a movement within
the organization of down-grading any other writing, and accepting the
writings of HPB as the only divinely inspired writing permitted within
It is interesting to see all the writings of individuals within the
various branches of the organization, that are accepted by some and
rejected by others right down to this day.
I feel that I can read all the field and use my own intuition to
determine what feels right, and what doesn't, just as COMPILER says
