no good Theosophist will accept anything in metaphysics on authority only. That was HPBs way and it is consonant with a series of spritual teachers through the ages.
But by point was not that you waste your time by studying Bailey. It is your time. My point was only that I have found out that the Bailey writings are not true Theosophy, but rather Theosophy misunderstood, if not faked. I only protest that Bailey is described as Theosophist or even as successor of HPB. You have all the right to study and to love Bailey. But if you take the right to call he a Theosophist, I too take the right to call her a Pseudo-Theosophist.
Many beginners in Theosophy have neither the time nor the energy to study 15.000 Blavatsky pages and the Bailey stuff too andthen come to own conclusions. You need not only time, silence but additional much discrimination power. My hints were for those people, not for those who can study and find out for themselves. I know of many people who have studied their whole life with all their will and heart power, 4 and five decades, but they cannot intellectually explain the difference between Bailey and Blavatskya lthough they feel it. For those are the comments. I don't force you to believe my comments.
Thankyou, Frank. The Chinese have a saying, "Put your worst foot forward."
