Hi Daniel and all of you,

Thanks for your kind email.

You have a link to the following page Daniel.

I just read the Bowen paper and the footnotes attached to them by Katinka
Hesselink. One has to say thanks to her for putting them online. Even so I
disagree with the footnotes made by Katinka. And just to let you know, my
fast written view on the matter - I email this to Theos-Talk readers:

On note 3 + 5. It is not nonsense - if the notes were made to disciples. -
Those who can read the Akasha - recordings or parts of it understand this as
not being nonsense. The authors imprints are always there.
You know Blavatsky never really favoured dead-letter reading.

On note 6.
Yes. But, this could be said no matter what time one would have chosen to
put out these thoughts.
And maybe because they were true - they were published.

On note 7.
Yes - but there could be reasons not to reveal all this to the students at
that time - year 1888-1891. The world has changed so very much since. The
average individual on this Planet has today 2003 a higher mental development
than back then.
Teaching happens according to - the needed the designs of the students in a
group. And NOT according to a WANTED design.
More on design in the below.

On note 9 or 10 ? (a syntax error)
I have to say I disagree with the twisting you make of the Neti, Neti
doctrine of the Upanishads.
Jnana Yoga and the Advaita teacings has much in common according to my view.
The REAL disciple ALWAYS follows Jnana Yoga. With Jnana Yoga being more than
the dead-letter Indian version of it.

Those who think they are disciples - and who doesn't follow Jnana Yoga but
other systems - as for instance the Bakhti Yoga cult (the devotional cult) -
are just aspirants - involved in a kama-manas (emotionally-related)
cult-like behaviour - just like a number the present day Theosophists are.
If one tells them that this is the fact - they sometimes refuse to
understand it, even if this is the truth. They have not yet transcended
their time-space view so they understand - the Neti, Neti doctrine on past,
present and future. They are too emotional.

Basically there are Bakhti Yoga, Jnana Yoga and Karma Yoga. All three of
them merges when - the aspirant - becomes the disciple and begins on the
When they haven't merged - and when Jnana Yoga is thought of as a doctrine
one can avoid - then there is no true Discipleship.
This I believe are the teachings - and also the teachings of Blavatsky.

All wisdom teaching to the apirants and disciples are made up of designs.
These designs are given to the students or Seekers - and involves are
certain expereince. The designs makes a certain amount of penetration in the
students minds and hearts. The teacher measures these penetrations. And
after a while new designs are being made - and a new penetration happens,
and so on.
These designs are experiences, which we have as Students on the Path. It can
be our behaviour, when something quite unexpected happens.

But again these are just my views - and claimed knowledge. Others might

M. Sufilight with peace and love...
