Re: Theos-World THEOSOPHY - Is it possible?

No need to apologise, my inner voice is prompting me to spend more time studying and less time on emails, although I have gained much from Jerry and others on Theos-fight.  Most of my time is spent with other non theosophical groups, that have introduced me to Rosicrucian and Pythagorean concepts, which blend beautifully with what HPB has to say.  I have been amazed at how many people are spiritually intune and motivated to seek answers to the hard questions.  I think it is a good sign, overall, that we, humanity, are steering towards our higher inspirations rather than our lower instincts. 
Be well

 This is a bit late, for which I apologize -- since I've been busy these past 
 weeks researching and writing and only have a few hours each day to read and 
 answer e-mail's.   Sometimes urgent ones take precedence while earlier ones get 
 buried (and sometimes forgotten:-) in my voluminous "letters to answer" 
 As for the Masters, and how they make contact; There's no reason that they 
 have to be here in the flesh or speak through a designated "messenger" -- ever 
 since they left the scene when HPB died and can now avoid all the problems they 
 faced by their personal appearances during her time.   The one thing that was 
 most important for them to avoid, was being thought of or worshipped as Gods, 
 or that their chosen messenger would be made into a religious ikon.
 Of course, that appearance was necessary initially -- so as to get HPB and 
 themselves the notoriety that could widely spread the Secret Doctrine as an 
 authentic revelation of the true nature of reality to those who need to know 
 during this last cycle of the theosophical movement (i.e., the decline of the fifth 
 and the coming of the sixth subrace).
 However, once the teaching was in print or "cut in stone" so to speak, and so 
 authenticated in the Secret Doctrine as a valid textbook of revelatory occult 
 knowledge, there was no longer any need for a living representative who could 
 be turned into a godhead and destroy the whole purpose of the Masters' 
 initial exposure of the secret teachings... That was intentionally formulated so as 
 NOT to become the basis of another separative organized religion.   
 Therefore, after HPB's death, the "Masters" would necessarily have to 
 disappear forever -- or at least until this last cycle of the present theosophical 
 movement had passed.
 Accordingly, all the so called "channeling" reports referring to KH, M, or DK 
 since that time are phony... Since, once anyone (AB, CWL, AAB, et al) 
 publicly exposes a legitimate connection to a theosophical Master, and in so doing, 
 contradicts their original teachings, they could no longer receive any 
 revelations from them, and all further occult information they claim as a "new 
 revelation" would have to be made up and false.   
 So, all that the masters have to do today to give out "needed" new 
 "revelations" to the "few (self) chosen" chelas -- is to plant such ideas in their minds 
 or guide them in deep meditation to write notes in the margins of their 
 books, or at other times and places (such as when writing letters or speaking) so 
 that these new ideas or clarifications of theosophical teachings always appear 
 to come through the chela's own intuitive understandings.   Thus, Einstein 
 apparently received his intuition of E=mc^2 and the theories of relativity and 
 quantum physics that way.
 One of the clues that allow one to contact the "masters" and receive these 
 revelatory ideas is the statement repeated by HPB along with many other occult 
 teachers -- (and enabled by any true student while in a deep practice of 
 Patanjali's Jnana Yoga) -- "Ask and you will receive."   In my case such revelations 
 come while reading aloud and then meditating ("with a seed") on obscure 
 passages in the SD... And later, translating the notes and scribbles in the margins 
 of my book -- most   which I don't remember writing (although I know I did:-) 
 -- into word pictures and symbolic diagrams. 
 The entire theory of ABC came to me in that manner during, roughly, a five 
 year concentrated scientifically oriented study of the secret Doctrine (after I 
 realized Einstein had also studied it) coupled with my many years of education 
 and experience in chemical & mechanical engineering, and all the arts and 
 sciences.   I started with a list of more than 100 questions that I wrote down 
 before seriously tackling that study... The overall question being, "How does 
 the Universe come about and evolve [without any supernatural occurrences] so as 
 to make us everything that we are?"   The other questions were simply 
 similarly oriented points along the way that were triggered whenever I came across an 
 appropriate passage in the SD that I could meditate on and get the answer.   
 In all of that study and questioning, I never came across any inconsistencies 
 with sound scientific, philosophical or aesthetic principles.   However, I did 
 find much inconsistency with the current scientific answers to such questions 
 -- which unfortunately, are based on a completely wrong materialistic view of 
 overall reality that denies consciousness as an a priori fundamental cause. 
 The trick is to arrive at the proper level of meditation and to ask the right 
 question to the Master or Chela (including HPB) whose vibrations one is in 
 tune with.   (Usually, it's the actual writer of the passage in question, since 
 they all had a hand in it.)   If, while achieving this connection the accepted 
 chela has a pencil in hand, with one's entire concentration focused on the 
 point in question, the answer (usually in the form of a symbolic diagram or 
 picture) will appear on whatever paper is under the pencil.   
 After continued practice in such a meditative state, the contact with the 
 Master becomes easier and, eventually, automatic -- even while awake and alert to 
 one's outer surroundings.   And, the answer to any theosophical question can 
 then be directly answered and spoken or written down in real time.   
 When such answers can open up a clearer view into the deepest metaphysical 
 mysteries that others (without any such scientific training or practical or 
 mathematical knowledge) can understand -- such clarifications could be considered 
 as "new revelations"...   Especially for those who have not gained such 
 understanding through a direct intuitive study of the original Secret Doctrine
