Hi Brigitte and all of you,

A view:
An interesting email yuu make there Brigitte.
Theosophy today as a movement is not what it was year 1891, and year 1929, and year 2000.Theosophy as a movement has a lot of branches. Theosophy as a teaching - "theosophy" - is the teaching of all ages. It is the teaching, and not the movement at year 1891, 1929, 2000 with or without faulths, which is important. It is the present action by the - always so clever reader.
According to me Blavatsky could read in the non-physical light.

I am NOT a firm believer of Idries Shah (I guess Indries Shah is Idries Shah - Brigitte). That is one more LIE Brigitte. I think it is NOT the first time, I have had to tell you, that you LIE. Please stop comming with these fake remarks. 

A view: I am firmly INTERSTED in studying/communicating as a hypotesis the wisdom teachings of all ages. Its name is theosophy, wisdom-religion, sufi teaching (tasawwuf in its truest sense), esoteric teachings and other names - when talking about the true and real core wisdom versions of these. But to be merged in - ParaBrahman - God as - Neti, Neti (not this, not that) is my life and message.
Now that is settled - so i hope for no more bad comments on my views on this and that.

A comment on Bennet:
The question is who is/was the 'con' - Bennet, Idries Shah or James Moore ? 
The article by James Moore is clearly biased. James Moore is/was a follower of Gurdjieff - and therefore not exactly the one to follow.
I post the mentioned article here temporaily here for study purpose only. It will be removed within a very few days: (If anyone is against this, please let me know.) Now everone can see the biased - but interesting - article - which James Moore is documenting it very well.

Sufiligt with a lot of - firm words...and the like
