"We find constantly in Mrs.Besant and Mr.Leadbeater, under a great show
of high moral aspirations, the reality of an actual moral and
intellectual fall. Much emphasis is placed on "liberty of thought" and
at the same time the intellectual desertion of this principle is
preached in counseling members to give blind obedience to "the least
hint which falls from the lips of Mrs.Besant," and to follow her
implicitly whether she is understood or not....We see clearly that the
fruits are precisely those we should expect from the seed; the terrible
danger of this method can neither be misunderstood nor denied...[we
must] never lend ear to the words which in this school quite naturally
take the place of the honest and right act, and so turn attention from
the moral ugliness of the actions performed.... Acts alone show forth
morality, not attractive formulas flowing from literary or oratorical
talent. The constant declaration of liberty of thought, of human
brotherhood, cannot impress us when the actions of those who delight in
them enslave thought, persecute merit, seek to poison souls by flimsy
and deceptive spiritual pronouncements...
    It is a painful duty to have to press the point with such insistence.
But now that we are facing the consequences of the Leadbeater method on
the mental character of the clairvoyant, our warnings in reference to
still more serious harm will not appear exaggerated.
    We know that the higher regions of the invisible worlds are those in
which "consciousness" manifests itself principally in the most intense
awareness of moral beauty.
    Since this is so, the cultivation of the non-moral clairvoyance could
only attain results in the lower regions of the astral world... the
organ of clairvoyant sight, when developed according to certain methods,
will be blind to the moral outline of subtle worlds, and will thus be
cut off from all their truly spiritual content. The field of their
experiences will be limited to the lower regions of the astral plane.
    And it is these lower visions, more frequently experienced because of
their affinity to elements in the vehicles of the investigator not yet
purified, that will be presented as the most sublime images of the
higher worlds. For such a clairvoyant is deprived of the high morality
which is the force leading our "bodies" by affinity towards truly
spiritual Beings[e.g., the Masters in Their Mahatmic "bodies".-A.L.C.]
Deprived of the standard of comparison that these provide, he will be
the victim of all the illusions of a world that is the veritable
motherland of illusions, for human errors are but the faint reflection
of these. Since the sense of responsibility, which is essentially moral
in origin [H.P.Blavatsky says;" The sense of responsibility is the
beginning of Wisdom." A.L.C.] will equally fail him, he will have no
scruple in sharing his illusions with all, in making known his
misleading experiences - the less since the forces, whose sport he is,
push him irresistibly to this. Are they not in truth the adversaries of
the divine scheme of evolution, the servants and sowers of error and
immorality the world over?"  M.Levy
