Re: Theos-World To Pedro & Anand: Serious Questions with Profound Implications
Sep 03, 2004 06:58 PM
Keeping in mind that HPB herself said that Truth is a many faceted
reality, all of which is seldom possible of view by one individual,
perhaps it is reasonable to make the assessment you request on a
personal level. If one reads the material produced and it "rings
true," it is beneficial. If it does not, it may not be suitable. But
who could say for another what material is best?
As for all the controversy swirling around Masters, i.e. do they
exist, do they communicate through anyone, etc., I suggest that the
whole subject is far too mysterious for us to fully or competently
understand at this time. According to the ancient teaching, all human
beings are Masters in embryo, so to speak, all creation is a
hierarchical geometrical entity. Everyone is a part of the Lodge of
Masters, much in the same way that children are a part of their
family. If one is in doubt about the existence of Masters, perhaps he
or she has not found the place within where the Master dwells.
