Thanks for commenting my message.
I agree with the quotations mentioned.
Karma is a cosmic system of balancing the acts involved in evolution, for Karma means " action" but how do you explain the existence of people with anextremely developed astral sences and exploring them to obtain personal favors and material enrichment, not no mention deceiving and illuding people?
What I was trying to say is that a man can develop such astrals and not useit for holy purposes.
So, I agree, as you say - in other words, of course - that Karma is like a divine eye thatīs taking all in account.
The more we are given to, the more weīll be charged for.
I am telling you this because in the path I īve found people with specialpsychic talents having bad moral and ethics attitudes.

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 development of "astral or etherical" senses are bound, and all
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."

I liked very much Katinkaīs considerations and opinions of Besantīs
efforts to show herself off in later editions of SD and the T.M.
Something very wrong and something we can learn a lot from is the
development of special powers i.g. clairvoyance.
The development of astral or etherical senses has nothing to do with
ethics and moral.
She and Leadbeater, with all their alleged psychic powers placed their
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).
