Thankyou, Frank. The Chinese have a saying, "Put your worst foot forward."
I think that people can look at all the bad things being said about Bailey
and then avoid looking at the material, especially Cosmic Fire and Rays and
the Intitiations and save themselves alot of "wasted" time. It is wonderful
when one is intelligent enough to see, clearly, that a certain way is the
wrong way and warn others. And it is important for others to heed these
warnings. I've spent 25 years studying Blavatsky and Bailey and I've
sacrificed the traditional medical career in order to do this. But. You
know? It will be worth it when I discover, the hard way, that the Bailey
Books are false and all these years of love of them and of studying were
wasted. Then I will have solidly learned, by my own choosen experience, of
which way not to go and can then come back to the true path no longer
tempted like those poor fools that still find in them(the 24 volumes of
A.A.B) a deeply attractive force in the world of sorrow and confusion.
There is the electric fire, the energy of the entire mental state of
consciousness. There is the solar fire, the energy of the mental body of
each of us, and then there is the fire by friction, the energy of the
relationship of electric fire and solar fire, wherein we learn the hard way
by many many lives of hard own experience. One day we will all wise up.
