Contradictory Views of Three Mystics

Master K.H. wrote to A.P. Sinnett:


In reference to your wonder that the views 
of the three mystics "are far from being 
identical," what does the fact prove? Were 
they instructed by disembodied, pure, and 
wise Spirits -- even by those of one remove 
from our earth on the higher plane -- would 
not the teachings be identical? The question 
arising: "May not Spirits as well as men 
differ in ideas?" Well, then their teaching -- 
aye, of the highest of them since they are 
the "guides" of the three great London Seers 
-- will not be more authoritative than 
those of mortal men. "But, they may belong 
to different spheres?" Well; if in the different 
spheres contradictory doctrines are propounded, 
these doctrines cannot contain the Truth, 
for Truth is One, and cannot admit of 
diametrically opposite views; and pure 
Spirits who see it as it is, with the veil 
of matter entirely withdrawn from it -- cannot err.
