I fully agree with your view. We should aim at direct perception of
the truth (or otherwise) of the teachings for ourselves.
Regarding "Isis", see what Master K.H. wrote (ML 18, chronological):
"(By-the-bye you must not trust Isis literally. The book is but a
tentative effort to divert the attention of the Spiritualists from
their preconceptions to the true state of things. The author was made
to hint and point out in the true direction, to say what things are
not, not what they are. Proof reader helping, a few real mistakes
have crept in as on page 1, chapter 1, volume 1, where divine Essence
is made emanating from Adam instead of the reverse.)"
Perhaps the present-day generation of students is faced with a kind
of antinomy: "Theosophy encourages the seach for Truth, but only the
teachings of HPB and the Mahatmas are true".
