Dear Jeremy and friends
My views are:
I will write shortly, this time.
Try to consider the fact, that you now in your below email have your eyes on me - and - are attacking/criticizing me for being what you clearly call ignorant and a blind fanatic.
This without providing a serious documentation on why, I should agree with you.
I suggest that you instead keep the eye on the ball and not the man, me, whom you now are attacking or criticizing without any real documentation to provide your case.
If we are going to have some fruitful exchanges, so to promote altruism, I will suggest that you familiarize yourself with the books on Subtle Mind Control first. Instead of irrelevant and in fact uncompassionate accusations thrown at me, saying that I am condemning various things. Something I never do. I never believed in the Christian religions ideas you see. We who have walked the path for years, never condemn anything or anyone.
Your letter to me in the below, shows me clearly that you have a distorted view on what I perceive Subtle Mind Control to be - and - what many anti-cult psychologist or more precisely Exit-counsellor have written on this subject with regard to religious organisations and religious New Age organisations.
This is a clear fact Jeremy to me. And I am not wavering an inch here.
Subtle Mind Control has to do with whether one is conditioned or not, and a number of other things. (It is in fact esoteric psychology to a certain extend. Esoteric because many members of religious groups do not know about it.) The victim of it, cannot see that it is a victim. So the "case" is closed so to speak. So it is futile to seek to explain the "victim" that it is a "victim", even if it is a happy "victim". Because there are happy victims as well as unhappy ones. This might sound strange. But we can actually be conditioned and be happy, or believe that we are not sectarian or not member of a cult. Subtle Mind Control also occur in Companies where people are employed, and they are not aware of it. Exit-Counsellors teach about these things today. This science. Because it is a science, not a belief or an article of faith.
(There were many such cases in the old Theosophical Society. Laura C. Holloway was such an example, however of a more psychic nature than most esoteric seekers these days.
See here: Letter 17:
"You draw to yourself the nearest and strongest influences - often evil - and absorb them, and are psychically stifled or narcotised by them. The airs become peopled with resuscitated phantoms.
They give you false tokens, misleading revelations, deceptive images. Your vivid creative fancy evokes illusive Gurus and chelas, and puts into their mouths words coined the instant before in the mint of your mind, unknown to yourself. The false appears as real, as the true, and you have no exact method of detection, since you are yet prone to force your communications to agree with your preconceptions."
"How can you know the real from the unreal, the true from the false? Only by self-development. How get that? By first carefully guarding yourself against the causes of self-deception, and chief among them, the holding of intercourse with elementaries as before, whether to please friends (?), or gratify your own curiosity. And then by spending a certain fixed hour or hours each day, all alone in self-contemplation, writing, reading, the purification of your motives, the study and correction of your faults, the planning of your work in the external life. These hours should be sacredly reserved for this purpose, and no one, not even your most intimate friend or friends, should be with you then. Little by little your sight will clear, you will find the mists pass away, your interior faculties strengthen, your attraction toward us gain force, and certainty replace doubts. But beware of seeking or leaning too much upon direct authority. Our ways are not your ways. We rarely show any outward signs by which to be recognized or sensed."

### SUBTLE MIND CONTROL - LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOUR ###
"- Interestingly we do not find much info about this science Subtle Mind Control among esoteric and theosophical groups or any religious groups or New Age group these days. And this might be a surprise to some readers. Yet it is not so to ordinary psychologists and those who have walked a bit further ahead scientifically speaking, as far as I know. These are however just my views, which I offer to the you as readers in these times of ours. - The model given by Steve Hassan can be compared with other well-known Exit Counsellors and authors on the subject. Such well-known Exit-counsellors and psychologists like Magareth Singer, Robert J. Lifton, Edgar Schein, Kurt Lewin and Willam Sargant, and even the sufi Idries Shah. And it will be found that there are many similarities between these authors and models, and their views about what some call subtle Mind Control."
I Suggest the book by Steve Hassan as the first one: "Combatting Cult Mind Control" or the new one
"Releasing the Bonds: Empowering People to Think for Themselves"
Esoteric Teachings on Psychology, we both agree on aught to Empowering People to Think for Themselves.
So therefore I recommend that you try these books.
I have read the Alice A. Bailey books several times.
But since you are not familiar with this science on Subtle Mind Control, I suggest that you seek to know my teachings. At least the letter by you in the below clearly tell me that you are not.
There are sadly not much info on the Internet about Subtle Mind Control.
There is one link though, which could be helpful in understanding it all better...
Because if dogs can be - taught to convert their behavior - human beings can also be taught to convert to a religion.
And it happens all the time these days in the many cults and sect on the planet, or religious groups all of the saying that THEY are the real thing, or the members are saying it, and others are not. For instance the Moonies, Scientology, Mormons, Bhahai, Edgar Cayce, Spiritualists, Summit Lighthouse, I AM, Caroline Myss, Eckhart Tolle, Maharaj Ji (Prem Rawat), Oneness University (Deeksha), or similar.
And most of them (of course not all of them) are saying: Do not be sceptic, do not question the doctrine - just believe what we are saying, do not enquire unless you do it like we want you to, or pray like we want you to, and at the right time fo the year as written in the scriptures about the three major festivals, etc. etc.
"The original and most famous example of classical conditioning involved the salivary conditioning of Pavlov's dogs. During his research on the physiology of digestion in dogs, Pavlov noticed that, rather than simply salivating in the presence of meat powder (an innate response to food that he called the unconditional response), the dogs began to salivate in the presence of the lab technician who normally fed them. Pavlov called these psychic secretions. From this observation he predicted that, if a particular stimulus in the dog's surroundings were present when the dog was presented with meat powder, then this stimulus would become associated with food and cause salivation on its own. In his initial experiment, Pavlov used a bell to call the dogs to their food and, after a few repetitions, the dogs started to salivate in response to the bell."
WILLIAM SARGANT on Palov's fear based experiement with the dogs, or rather accident:
Sargant begins his thesis with the near drowning of Pavlov's dog in a 1924 Leningrad
flood. An assistent rescued the dogs, freed them from their cages, and left them to safety.
Though looking no worse for wear, a strange change came over them. They had forgotten
or reversed the training they had received before the traumatic experience. Keepers they
had shown affection towards now received their aggression. Keepers whom they disliked*were
now the recipients of affection. The dogs had forgotten their recent learning and had
to be retrained.
(These words can almost be found verbatim in William Sargants book "The Battle for the Mind", 1957 - I copied them from here - http://www.ishk.net/battle_for_the_mind.pdf)
We live in strange times.
There are today thousands of religious New Age sects in the Western countries, not to mention the rest of the globe.
Statictis provided by the most well-known psychologist on this subject says, that it is interestingly enough not those who are depressed and psychologically imbalanced, who become members of these sects - and - become victims (either willingly or unwillingly, more or less, there are many shades on the scale). No, because they are too unstable, and are not suitable for leadersof scets with regard to Subtle Mind Control, whether it is benign or not. Because Subtle Mind Control can operate in a manner where the victim experiences what he or she is delighted in experiencing, not knowing however, that Sublte Mind Control is ocurring. - No, it is the intellectuals, which are the most easy targets, says the statistics among Exit-Counsellors (!)
You will find this out, if you study the this subject.
Now I have written the above, not at all because I want people to drop their esoteric views about spiritual development and other kinds of knowledge. Not at all. And I do mean it. - I write them so that the honest Seeker after Truth and Wisdom - also you Jeremy - will be able to understand --- much better --- why many persons and anti-cult psychologists and even Exit-Counsellors and others consider Lucis Trust to be a sect - and some even a cult. We know this to be a fact.
When you clearly know the opposite side of the truth, you will be able to understand the role Lucis Trust plays - and - be able to tell Exit-Counsellors and others why Lucis Trust is allright - or - why it is not.
This is the whole difference I perceive, when I received your below letter. You are simply not aware of this science and what it contain.
But, again I might be mistaken.
The strange thing is that nearly all Alice A. Bailey followers are so very intelligent, so they claim, that they know all about this science, as if they could walk on water and all. Something seem to be not quite right here. Not all Alice A. Bailey followers know about this science on Subtle Mind Control, and this is a fact. Superficial knowledge make them draw a false conclusions - and - this makes a huge difference with regard to the benefit they might have from such a knowledge.

Morton, you are labouring with first key work while the second key was turned by AAB/DK as HPB prophesised. The whole field of the Secret Doctrine has shifted higher and deeper. You lambast HPB' predicted second and psychological key as being mind control and refuse to open your eyes hence your complete ignorance on HPB' prediction.
Today the whole field of psychology is opening up and this due to the hugely expanded work on the seven rays and the three fires and all else. The GI is a mantram from the head of Hierarchy the Maitreya Christ, and you condemn it in blind ignorance and stupidity. Pull yourself up and take on board that HPB by her own account was superseded by a more informed and far better fitted disciple, thus the first instalment of the SD is expanded and overwritten psychologically speaking.
It is the work of hierarchy and the GI is sacred and given to humanity to invoke spiritual energies into the world and to assist the reappearance of the Christ or by whatever name is wished to be spiritually used. The UN was Initiated by the Chohan Serepis and that is why the Masters work with and through it including the Christ. The Lucis Trust uphold it and work with it for world education and welfare and human betterment and relief. There is no juvenile conspiracy or mind control other than psychological recognition and cooperation with it. That's today legitimate as the second psychological key was turned on behalf of humanity by AAB and DK. The League of Nations failed and the UN is its latter attempt at world communication of countries to try to settle differences and resolve disputes. Perfection does not rule yet so we have what we have. JPC.
