Re: Theos-World Personal experiences of a Supreme Personality

Here is part of a KH letter to Laura Holloway -- from the Blavatsky Archives

You have scarcely learned the elements of self-control in psychism; your vivid
creative imagination evokes illusive creatures, coined the instant before in
the mint of your mind; unknown to yourself. As yet you have not acquired the
exact method of detecting the false from the true, since you have not yet
comprehended the doctrine of shells. Nevertheless it is not unreasonable
emotionalism that can remove a fact from Nature. Your ex-friend is a shell,
and one more dangerous for you than ten other shells - for his feeling for you
was intense and earthly. The little of the spirituality in it is now in
Devachan - and there remains in Kama-Loka but the dross he tried so vainly to
repress. And now listen and remember:

Whether you sit for friends in America or London, or elsewhere as medium -
though you now hate the word - or seeress, or revelator, since you have
scarcely learned the elements of self-control, in psychism, you must suffer
bad consequences. You draw to yourself the nearest and strongest influences -
often evil - and absorb them, and are psychically stifled or narcotised by
them. The airs become peopled with resuscitated phantoms.

They give you false tokens, misleading revelations, deceptive images. Your
vivid creative fancy evokes illusive Gurus and chelas, and puts into their
mouths words coined the instant before in the mint of your mind, unknown to
yourself. The false appears as real, as the true, and you have no exact method
of detection, since you are yet prone to force your communications to agree
with your preconceptions. Mr. Sinnett against his own wish and unconsciously
to himself has attracted about him a cloud of elementaries whose power is such
over him as to make him miserably unhappy for the moment and shake his
constance. He is actually in danger of losing all he has gained, and of
cutting himself off from me forever.
