>Jerry: if the"impersonal ego" equates to what HPB called The Reincarnating
Jiva, then I agree with her absolutely. Where I differ is that based upon
both my experience as a Magician and as a Shaman,it's my experience that
"The Perispirit" or immediate "higher self" of an excarnate, after it's data
bank is telemetered to the Impersonal Ego, goes on in it's own evolutionary
path. It's a kind of blending of theosophy and spiritualism because in my
experience both are intrinsically valid.
As you get to know me better you'll find I seldom disagree with Yelena
Blavatskaya, but I very rarely agree with those who came after her whom I
view as "revisionists".
