Many spiritual seekers think Alice Bailey is a theosophist akin to Blavatsky - not so. Bailey is weak tea and often in key areas distorts Theosophy.

Plotinus on suicide

Plotinus on Voluntary Death, by Elias

Quote:
Plotinus writes a treatise in one book on the reasonableness of exiting
from life and does not accept any one of the five reasons given for this.
For he says that just as god does not stop being providential for us, but
we make ourselves unfit and believe that god is far from us when he is
equally present to us, as those who are purified make clear, having seen
god themselves and consorted with him; and just as the sun shines its
light equally to all, although bats, unfit for the light, flee it and are not
illuminated by it, believing that the sun is darkness and not the source of
light, so the philosopher should imitate god and the sun, not being
careless of the body just because they care for the soul, but taking
providential care of it until such time as it becomes unfit, distancing
itself from its association with the soul. For it is absurd to exit before
one’s time, which is when the one who joined the body and soul together
loosens the bond.

Taken by email or post, here are several offerings to learn about Theosophy:

This apparent division between Theosophy and Bailey, is purely distraction from the teachings of both, it is just peoples personalities trying to keep us locked in our lower nature.

Blavatsky, Bailey, every single being that has ever brought even the smallest amount light into the darkness works with the Spiritual Hierarchy, The Ascended Masters, the Council of God, whatever you wish to call them.

Any apparent division or separation is either an illusion of perspective, a misunderstanding or a deliberate attempt to spread disharmony.

All Lightworkers serve the same team.

Light, Love and Power to you!

Whitemage, as the author of the Theosophy's Shadow article wrote:

Quote:
This short piece is not about whether Bailey's writings are inspiring, wonderful or contain any truth; but simply whether HPB and AAB had the same mentors, as claimed by Bailey.

So the motives you impute to him are strictly your own. Unless you are a psychic with 100% accuracy in reading the motives of writers.

@Skull

I think you missed my point my friend, disputing this claim or that claim about whatever is true from this point of view or that point of view, is just a distraction from our lower nature and impedes us from connecting with our higher selves.

Whomever mentored who is irrelevant to the work of bringing light, and disparaging other light workers because you don't agree with or think false some claim or belief only helps deepen the darkness.

Find your own truth, if the teachings within Theosophy ring true to you discover them deeply and bring them into your heart and share your knowledge with other seekers...

Good journeys, Light, Love and Power to you!

(P.S. As I'm sure you know, no psychic is 100% accurate)

A lot of confusion and frustration arises from the tone people use in their posts. You have to pay special attention to convey your tone in writing. Also, most people forget to make clear that they express their own opinions, or quote others' (to make that clear to others, and to themselves too). Many posts sound more sententious than they are meant to be, and than they should be.

I'm here just to express my opinions, and read about others'.

Remember that the only God man comes in contact with is his own God, called Spirit, Soul and Mind, or Consciousness, and these three are one.

But there are weeds that must be destroyed in order that a plant may grow. We must die, said St. Paul, that we may live again. It is through destruction that we may improve, and the three powers, the preserving, the creating and the destroying, are only so many aspects of the divine spark within man.

Here is a link to get one started: http://davidpratt.info/


If it wasn't for Colonel Olcott and his purse, the original theosophical society would never have gotten off the ground.

Remember, it was Madame Blavatsky who sought out Colonel Olcott.
