Steady on old chap, lest you blow a few petals off your solar 

You make some excellent points in the rest of your tirade, but this 
first bit is a load of codswallop. The fact that you subscribe to 
the rubbish on Pinenet says it all. 

"The slower method of research is the safer at present. In the next 
century and early in the century an initiate will appear and will 
carry on their teaching. It will be under the same "impression" for 
my task is not yet completed and this series of bridging Treatises 
between the material knowledge of man and the science of the 
initiates has still another phase to run."

"Letters on Occult Meditation followed next. These indicated a 
somewhat new approach to meditation, based not on devotion to the 
Masters but on a recognition of the soul in each person. This was 
succeeded by A Treatise on Cosmic Fire. This book was an expansion 
of the teaching given in The Secret Doctrine on the three fires—
electric fire, solar fire and fire by friction—and it was an awaited 
sequence; it also presented the psychological key to The Secret 
Doctrine and is intended to offer study to disciples and initiates 
at the close of this century and the beginning of the next century, 
up until 2025 A.D."

"Towards the end of the century and during the first few decades of 
the twenty-first century, teaching anent Shamballa will be given 
forth. The effort of the abstract mind of man will be towards the 
comprehension of this, just as the [Page 262] goal of hierarchical 
contact marks the present effort of the disciple. "
