I'm in complete agreement with all you say above, and AAB is as well.
In essence, spirit is unlimited. Probably, I relied too much on your
reading my meaning between the lines. The is a bit of related
thought at this corner of my web page:

NW> Our minds are the one source of good & evil, truth & error. If our thoughts
NW> or feelings are based on error we attract from the astral light living
NW> entities of a similar false nature. This makes the search for, and finding of
NW> truth more & more difficult. As long as we prefer peace, good feelings,
NW> harmony et al instead of truth, the possibility of delusion & eventually
NW> greater suffering is there. Since AAB/CWL teachings are not rooted in the
NW> truthful current of HPB & her Gurus, only greater delusion and sorrow await
NW> those who are fully invested in those Blue books' notions.

Except for the last sentence in your paragraph above, I'm in complete
agreement with you. As to the last, I understand your viewpoint. But
what I want to say to you is on this page:
