I don't quite understand why people who disagree so considerably cannot
nonetheless agree to "live and let live" in the area of disagreement and
let go of the anger. I would imagine (could be wrong) that as a healer
you might find it difficult to help someone with whom you were extremely
angry at the time. Soon we shall have the original TS material about
the CWL affair circa 1908 that turned up in England recently.
This is if course about history as much as it is about theosophy, so
some latitude will, I hope, be allowed. I agree, for example, with your
other post concerning ~First Principle of Theosophy~ but would point out
(and do) that as my own first intro to the subject this book gave me a
head start, for all of its flaws. Sometimes it is only by spotting the
mistakes that we are moved to look for the truth.
