Hi. I would like to make an addendum to the part of my message which is
quoted below.. When I spoke of authoritarianism being disgusting I was
speaking of what I felt when I have seen it in myself. Do you understand
that by phrasing the material above in the way that you did, you were, to
use a psychological term, objectifying me (turning me into an object)? Do
you understand that therre was no way to go any further after reading this?
No opening? Krishnamurti came out of the theosophy movement. That is an
obvious given. He left it because he could not use that as a vehicle to
accomplish his aim, which was, if I am not mistaken, similar to, if not the
very same aim as that of theosophy. He could not use it because it was not
functional as a vehicle for accomplishing this. It is obvious. If you or I
understand something it might be a good idea to try to explain it in our own
words. If we cannot do that, maybe we can learn by practicing.

You have called theosophy a RELIGION. Other people may want you to follow
THEIR religions because they think they are better. There is no way to sort
it out. Thius all leads to war. Krishnamurti had to leave. He could not be a
world teacher under those conditions. No one would have listened. It does
not matter when Madame Blavatsky predicted a world teacher would come. She,
too, like you and I, was no authority. Yoiu cannot prove anything except
perhaps the truth of what I say by asking me to read Sanat. It is not
enquiry. At least the subject of what is and is not enquiry has come up
here. Wry p.s. Please tell me where to find Daniel's message, which I have
missed seeing.
