None of us can depend on authority or anyone else to do our thinking and
understanding. Blavatsky, Bailey, D.K., etc may think clearly and
understand that thought deeply. If so it is because of many lives of
practice and effort. I understand the Buddha said He did not teach the
written Veda; he taught the Veda written in the Heart. It is not until we
each learn to meditate in our own choosen way that we learn about the
creative contemplative life. The source is the one life we all share
together and express as best we can through many and varied ways. Many of
us have many qualities that are advanced and shining, but each of us must
develop all the qualities of life into the advanced and shining state. It
is to each of us to become the best human being that we can be. This may be
from reading and studying, leading a nation or helping to civilize the world
or combinations thereof. Oh to find and do that which we truely love doing
and tolerate the expressions of all others bound in the same process! It is
this that translates love into action.
