I just thought I was beginning to enjoy a lovely sunny day, drinking
my coffee while reading my morning e-mails when my tolerance with
inane queries was tested. But thanks for wasting my time anyway; I'm
going to consider your inspiring questions.
`HPB, KH, M, CWL, AB, JC, DK, nor any other entity sporting a set of
initials is infallible. Can we accept this?'
I agree Completely
...When we antropomorphize the God principle are really just
imagining a big old guy sitting on a planet somewhere in outer space
with his chin in his palm musing to himself about the goings on on
the 3d rock from the sun?'
Well anthropomorphize means to ascribe human features to something,
we could imagine him as a handsome guy, around Venus it's more
logical if we agree with the wise saying of the Master Nan Nun Chao
Ban Lin Shi Bin: God made man and then rested. God made women and
then no one rested.
About your other questions, the below quote may bring you some
"He says that people will not accept the whole truth; that unless we
humour them with a hope that there may be a "loving Father and
creator of all in heaven" our philosophy will be rejected a priori.
In such a case the less such idiots hear of our doctrines the better
for both. If they do not want the whole truth and nothing but the
truth, they are welcome. But never will they find us -- (at any
rate) -- compromising with, and pandering to public prejudices. Do
you call this "candid" and -- honest "from a European standpoint"?
Read his letter and judge. The truth is, my dear friend, that
notwithstanding the great tidal wave of mysticism that is now
sweeping over a portion of the intellectual classes of Europe, the
Western people have as yet scarcely learned to recognise that which
we term wisdom in its loftiest sense." K.H Letter 54
Anyway thank you for sharing your visible disappointment and doubts.
