I'm sure Dallas feels H.P.B. is a guide, possibly even a Master of some sort
although she would say she was only a student but the fact remains Dallas
"sees" H.P.B. as his only focus and that is a requirement of all students
(chelas) in developing right attitude , so i re-iterate one eventually
"needs" a gude and revering and veneration and devotion and so on are the
stepping stones with which we ascend to the heights of Everest and , in the
end , one supposes that the moth becomes the butterfly, and the Butterfly who
taught the moth and the moth who became a butterfly are then one, BUT, by way
of reason, not till then is all this student meant to say and I know Dallas
wanted to clear up any resemblance of a hangy on approach to shifting
responsibility to having an "AUTHORITY" as one's crutch thereby incurring a
loss of dignity and who knows what else. The fact remains H.P.B. existed and
her Masters existed , now who was who? Master? student? man? woman? lower
self? Higher Self? Those who read H.P.B. are they "students"? Masters? or
merely readers of occult metaphysics . who are you? (please don't answer as
your view of you has allready been stated} Who am I? What are you? What am I?.
Now who would have to ask these questions if we REALLY knew 100%.
Dallas points to the fact that H.P.B. gives a FULL view of who we are really
and who we might become and one pointedness has its virtues, believe me.
