     A close view of the difficulties people went through during those
times shows that HPB and others tried various approaches to the
presentation of truth -- some of which worked and some of which created
glamours.  The struggles were more in the working out of right relations
among themselves and a fair amount of HPB's writings before The Secret
Doctrine were written filtered through these struggles.  Through this
she sought, as the Soul within, to find and express right methods of
work.  The Secret Doctrine itself is, however a completely "pure" work,
so to speak, in that all that is contained therein was kept free from
the personal influences.  It can take many years (perhaps decades), even
for an Initiate, to transmute the circumstances and personality
difficulties in which they incarnated in order to create and bring forth
such a pure expression.
