This is from Nancy.
Thanks for your BACK TO THE SOURCE comments. I want to add
my voice to those who assess material based on its merits, not
its source. Seems to me that encourages independent thinking.
I did notice a possible discrepancy though so I put forth an
alternate point to one of your quotes.
>> Yet Master KH in another letter (dated August 22, 1888) to
Colonel Henry S. Olcott again denied Sinnett's claim:
"Since1885 I have not writt, nor caused to be written
save thro' her[HPB's] agency, direct or remote, a letter or
line to anybody in Europe or America, nor communicated orally
*with*, or *thro'* any third party. >>
My edition of THE MAHATMA LETTERS indicates the letters were
written between 1880 and 1884. The comment <since 1885 I have
not written . . .> would not then be inconsistent.
To Ron B.
Church Universal and Triumphant used to reside in Pasadena and
many years ago I went to one of their meetings. It was like a
Broadway production, Elizabeth Claire was channeling all the
greats, the music and lights were top notch. She called on
Mary Baker Eddy, Jesus, Maria Montessori, and others, to
support her. I was interested and surprised to learn that
Jesus is politically on the side of the Americans so the US has
nothing to fear. She showed a video which was a very
professional take-off on the musical Camelot, to raise money
for her new HQ. It was designed to appeal to our sentimental,
maudlin, and adolescent natures.
I found no theosophy there. It saddens me to think she is
using the name theosophy to promote her theater.
