In part you write:
"The development of astral or etherical senses has nothing to do with
ethics and moral."
According to Theosophical teachings there is no such separation.
Karma envelops all things and ideas. Hence our actions and thoughts and

The Universe is ONE and as it is a whole, every part is interactive with
all the rest..
The path between the physical and the spiritual passes through the
astral (etherical) and the psychic. All are forever involved in each
No one can reach up to the spiritual without first purifying the astral,
psychic or "etherical."

own ego in the first place.
The thing is, may we research at most, read lots of books, try to
develop and increase our peception of superior reality, nothing is more
important than equivalent advance in the supression of our personal
desires. It is spiritual evolution.
History tells us that human organizations are as perfect as their
Thatīs my point of view.

I don't think you have your facts straight. Besant did not start the
Liberal Catholic Church, nor was she much involved in it (if she had
been I doubt there would have been an all mail clergy).
