There is no question but we are always learning from others.
In the case of theosophy, since H P B was its exponent, I would
recommend we all go to her to find out what she taught. What
could be simpler ?
Many have evolved their own ideas as to what theosophy might say,
but are those opinions "in line" with the original teachings by
the original teacher ?
Every one has to do the reading and the studying for themselves
and make up their own minds.
Opinions about Theosophy are many. The teaching of Theosophy was
the province and duty of one person: H P B.
And that's the position I take but, it is strictly for myself. I
also read what others say. And I compare those ideas with the
originals. Everyone has to do this for themselves. There is no
other way. But yes there is accepting the opinions or the say-so
of others without thought or checking. That is blind belief and
faith. It may or may not be true. But, WHAT DO WE ACTUALLY KNOW

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
"sees" H.P.B. as his only focus and that is a requirement of all
(chelas) in developing right attitude , so i re-iterate one
"needs" a gude and revering and veneration and devotion and so on
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
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
wanted to clear up any resemblance of a hangy on approach to
responsibility to having an "AUTHORITY" as one's crutch thereby
loss of dignity and who knows what else. The fact remains H.P.B.
her Masters existed , now who was who? Master? student? man?
self? Higher Self? Those who read H.P.B. are they "students"?
merely readers of occult metaphysics . who are you? (please don't
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
and who we might become and one pointedness has its virtues,
