My views are:
Well, these words was to members of her small Esoteric Section, was it not?
But, yes it seems you are quite right. But I suggest, that we let the moderators explain about it.
I so much have the hope that some of the members of The Theosophical Network would say something. And something about how they plan to operate in the future without running in the the secterian aspects, I touched upon in the last paragraph my previous email to Joaquim and all of you.
I am not here to put anyone down. I am in fact seeking to help The Theosophical Network out before it gets worse --- well worse seen from my point of view, if you know what I mean.
But after all.
A lot of good is happening on the planet. Many theosophically related meetings take place.
Dogmatism is loosing its grip on many these days. Materialism seems in fact to be the real problem today.
Many are not interested in seeking out the meaning of life --- and to promote altruism in an honest manner. Altruism has become something you sell, a merchandize or something like that.
Well, that is my experience from the last few decades on this planet. There seem to be a strange karma on this planet, and new reincarnations are ready to arrive it seems, (well the doctrine reincarnation is only a hypothesis I forward, but I find that most often people find i difficult to replace it with something else, which is better in their overall worldviews.)

Well, Sufilight, based on what you have told us today,
it would appear that if H.P. Blavatsky had published the
following statements on a certain Theosophical discussion
group/forum she would be banned!
". . . A new and rapidly growing danger. . . is threatening . . . the spread of the pure Esoteric Philosophy and knowledge. . . . I allude to those charlatanesque imitations of Occultism and Theosophy. . . . "
"By pandering to the prejudices of people, and especially by adopting the false ideas of a personal God and a personal, carnalized Saviour, as the groundwork of their teaching, the leaders of this 'swindle' (for such it is) are endeavoring to draw men to them and in particular to turn Theosophists from the true path."
". . . A close examination will assuredly reveal. . . materials largely stolen . . . from Theosophical writings. . . [and] distorted and falsified so as to be palmed off on the unwary as revelations of new and undreamed of truths. But many will neither have the time nor the opportunity for such a thorough investigation; and before they become aware of the imposture they may be led far from the Truth."
". . . Nothing is more dangerous to Esoteric Truth than the garbled and distorted versions disfigured to suit the prejudices and tastes of men in general."
