Hi James and all of you,
Thanks for your email.
Could it be so, and is it not so, that today we have more than one Theosophical group (pro-Baileys and other groups) doing an effort teaching people, that spiritual development is possible, and that it just requires hormony between the head, the heart and the hands ?
And those intentions are just great, and I respect them deeply !
Without the heart, one will get trouble, and lose ones head as well so to speak.
Without the head, one will lose oversight.
And without the hands (or right social relations) one gets into trouble as well.
They different groups just have their own interpretation on what Theosophy and the ancient wisdom tradition is about.
My view is: The problem with some (i.e. SOME ) pro-Bailey groups - is that they lose sight of the IMPORTANCE of the global perspective, what is going on theosophically-politically at The United Nations with its Middle Eastern tensions.
The head is missing.
H. P. Blavatsky said it: The aspirant must develop a global perspective !
Those same groups have - clear tendencies - to ignore or look down upon The Middle East.
The heart is missing.
H. P. Blavatsky said it: Theosophy is altruism !
Now I have one more time put my views pure and simple.
I am not talking about attack - but about a debate on, where are the planet today, where are theosophy as such today on this plnaet, and what is going on at The United Nations where theosophical or pro-Bailey groups are involved ! (I believe James answer was something like: "I don't like the Catholic Church". Allright, but that is to miss the point I am making. Because I sometimes ask questions it doesn't simply imply, that I am ignorant. I do hope you will understand that.)
And that is that.
Feel free to comment...or do your best....or...refrain from debating...
It is the readers choice...no one is attacking anyone or forcing anyone...
If so let me know.
M. Sufilight with peace on earth...and...peace to the overlooked people at The Middle East...
