Hi Suzanne, you are quite right. That's what is recommended in the
thesophical books... :-)
BTW, my point was rather the teachings, not so much the books, although
pukka theosophical books will contain pukka theosophical teachings in
opposition to pseudo-theosophicals books which will contain
pseudo-theosophical teachings. But that is only important for the few - the
few truth seekers. For all others it does not matter.

Forive me Frank, but I am not quite sure I understand what you are
saying. But, let me say this... I do think there comes a point
(turning point?) in one's life when you have to put away all the
books and start thinking for yourself.
