Hi Brigitte,

Thank you for that overview of reputed contacts by the Masters. I was
familiar with much of the history but not some of the later portion.

As to my feelings (opinion)on all this, it's kind of mixed. I do believe
HPB had some sort of inspiration from more advanced beings, but how that
all settles out to me is not AS important as the work she produced

I am well aware that TS-Adyar people was well dispute whatever claims to
guidance William Q. Judge may have had, while on the other hand ULT
people tend to doubt the inpiration of Annie Besant and C.W.Leadbeater. I
believe Mr. Judge to have been an honest and inspired man. I've read some
of C.L. works but the verdict is still out.
I do see inspiration in Krishnamurti and unlike some, do not believe
thare has to be a choice made between him ot theosophy. I tend to like
the reasoning and reserch of Mr Sanat in that regard. I don't know enough
about Alice Bailey to make an honest judgment, honestly, I've tended to
avoid her works. I've read some of Steiner for his alternate educational
concepts bur honestly see too much racism in his Anthroposophy.

I also believe that without having first discovered Mormonism, I would
never have made it to theosophy. To me, Mormonism was a " step in the
right direction" with concepts such as linear progression, diety being
advanced men, multiple worlds, etc. The big problem there is that Joseph
Smith was killed and no one really picked up the ball to advance his
teachings, all assuming his work was complete at his death. I don't
believe that. I think he had much more to share but was cut off before he
could. The worls had to wait then for HPB. Interestingly, I read a new
age history that listed Smith as America's first occultist and HPB as
following in his footsteps.

Now I need to apologize. I am aware that when someone makes statements
such as I just did, most on this list would like to see references. I
took this book out of interlirbrary loan read it, enjoyed it, but made no
notes. I don't even remember the author. I'll have to be more careful
with this type of thing in the future.
