STARTING



The reader of this text aught to know, that the whole of humanity are on my mind, when I write these and the following words. My mind is extremely concerned with how our lives and destinies form themselves in the world.

Alice A. Bailey wrote in the book A Treatise on Cosmic Fire:
"In the case of H. P. B. this is apparent. On the tide of the present endeavor, the Secret Doctrine will be vindicated and her work justified."
("A Treatise on Cosmic Fire", page 707-8, written 1925, by Alice A. Bailey, english edition.)

H.P. Blavatsky wrote:
"...I deny in toto the Christ invented by the Church, as well as all the doctrines, all the interpretations, and all the dogmas, ancient and modern, concerning that personage..."
(H.P. Blavatsky: REPLY TO THE MISTAKEN CONCEPTIONS OF THE ABBÉ ROCA CONCERNING MY OBSERVATIONS ON CHRISTIAN ESOTERICISM, in Collected Writings, Vol. IX, page 216).

H. P. Blavatsky said:
"The Society founded to remedy the glaring evils of Christianity, to shun bigotry and intolerance, cant and superstition and to cultivate real universal love extending even to the dumb brute".
(The Collected Writings of H. P. Blavatsky, vol. 7, p.246)

Master KH wrote in a Mahatma Letter:
For the opposition represents enormous vested interests, and they have enthusiastic help from the Dugpas -- in Bhootan and the Vatican!
(Here is all of Mahtama Letter, No. 55. Dugpas are the same as selfish Magicians.)

This situation has according to our knowledge not just vanished and disappeared from all theosopphical teaching, without any theosophical Seeker has explained why? So what is going on in the theosophical circles and their various offshoots, but ignorance about the true state of affairs, since H. P. Blavatsky and her Masters because of the karma of humanity withdrew from public visibility. Let us consider whether Alice A. Bailey's teachings are dangerous.



First a few words on the origins of Theosophy
Sometimes used as the Seal of the Blavatskian Esoteric Section It was H. P. Blavatsky (HPB) (1831-1891), H. S. Olcott (HSO) (1832-1907), as many readers probably know, and others, who started or founded the organisation named "The Theosophical Society" in 1875. H. P. Blavatsky was one of the leading personalities or exponents, who wrote the most about the theosophical teachings. Her authorship is famous around the globe, and especially in philosophical, religious and New Age circles.

Later on in October 1888 H. P. Blavatsky formed an inner group named the Esoteric Section (or School) of the Theosophical Society for the deeper study of the Esoteric Philosophy by dedicated students, and wrote for them some esoteric instructions. They have recently been made public on the Internet. They can be reached here: Esoteric Instructions (Extract from H.P.B.'s E.S.T.S. Instruction No. I, English edition, from Daniel Caldwell's website).

One of the most important statements of H. P. Blavatsky's was how one, as a theosophist, aught to relate to the various systems of thought, ideologies, teaching systems and writings. She said, that one aught to deal with them with the view, that we "cull the good we find in each", and that we support alle systems of thought and at the same time we support none. H. P. Blavatsky said countless of times, that theosophy is in its innermost nature altruism, that is, altruism at its core. Other theosophists took over leadership when H. P. Blavatsky died and also later when the president of the Theosophical Society known as H. S. Olcott died. One of the most well known of the later caretakers was Alice A. Bailey. The question is then how much her interpretations of the theosophical teachings are expressions of real theosophy in our present day of life and so-called civilisation.


A few words about Alice A. Bailey
Alice A. Bailey (1880-1949), (also AAB) was an author and lecturer within what today to us theosophists is known as Neo-Theosophy. She was born in England and moved to USA in 1907, where she lived the rest of her life.

Alice A. Bailey was married twice. Her first husband was named Walther Evans. She was divorced from him just about the time she came in contact with The Theosophical Society. Later she got married with the former judge named Foster Bailey (known as a 33rd degree Freemason of the Scottish Rite) in 1920 in New York. Whether she was married in a Christian Church I have at present no info about. Freemasonry by the Scottish Rite contains elements stemming from the time of the medieval Knights Templars. The to some very interesting priest Sauniere from Rennes-Le Chateau visited the Martinists in France where he lived. And we know, that Martinism has close parallels with the Scottish Rite. There are today among all of these esoteric as well as non-esoteric groups. Even so we also know, that most of these groups today are influenced by the Jesuit rites, with the sad consequences this have today.

Alice A. Bailey officially authored 25 books. The 20 of them she claimed to have written in a close collaboration with a so-called Master, an Adept of the 5th initiation by the name Djwhal Khul. Djwhal Khul is also known as both Djual-Khool, Gjual-Khool, The Tibetan, Master D.K. or DK etc.
Some of the books by Alice A. Bailey are ready to be downloaded online from the Internet at this website.

After Alice A. Bailey had been a member of even the Esoteric Section of The Theosophical Society, she founded, what she called a break-away esoteric organisation in 1923. It is today known as The Arcane School. And we remember, that the original Esoteric Section was formed by H. P. Blavatsky in October 1888. This esoteric section's structure had at the time for Alice A. Bailey's break-away been changed primarily by the later leading Theosophist Annie Besant and others after the physical death of H. P. Blavatsky.


A few words about the "Jesuits" and the false Christian's
It should be mentioned, that the use of the word "Jesuits" and similar in the following are only used with emphasis of the use of the word about "False Christian's", the deceiving Christian, and the non-compassionate Christian and similar. I claim that Christianity today is highly influenced by that sort of Jesuits or fraudulent Christian's, who has power hunger, despotism and even magic as their primary goal. It is of course possible, that there exists peaceful Jesuits. If they are wise and compassionate any of them is something quite different.

If any Christian's find the content of this article to be a visious attack upon their religion or what they perhaps would call a good cause, I will merely say, that my article is a defence against those who continously smears and throw lies upon the good name of Jesus and the theosophical teachings about wisdom and compassion, also known as heartflow.

The thought, that there exists groups of fraudulent militant, black magic and power-thinking Christian's, who work together is not new. H. P. Blavatsky wrote about the subject several times. She also mentioned, that one as a theosophist aught to be on guard and look after any kind of infiltration inside theosophical circles from this group of individuals. That is, on the look out for any infiltration of the theosophical teachings and writings by this group. Today, it is without doubt true, that such groups seek and have sought infiltration of theosophical groups, theosophical literature and teachings. There are also today Christian Freemasons who has the Bible at their Lodge-alter, and who not always find the teachings on Gupta-Vidya by H. P. Blavatsky to be something they fancy very much.

It should be mentioned, that the known theosophist Rudolf Steiner (d. 1925) in 1920 got authored some of his lectures about the Jesuits and the Roman Catholic Church. The lectures contains information and knowledge about the Jesuits and their organisations dangerous and very devious attitudes towards life and magic. The lectures are here "Roman Catholicism" (English edition).
A short quote; "No doubt you are aware that Jesuit influence is behind many of the attacks on us." (1920) And this was the year 1920, the time where Alice A. Bailey wrote her first books. Thereby it is not said by me, that I encourage each and every one to follow all the teachings by Rudolf Steiner. Not at all. But, parts of the content of the lectures are very interesting in comparison with the subjects this article is concerned with.

There is a more in-depth lecture from Rudolf Steiner about the issue: "From Jesus to Christ" by Rudolf Steiner, October 1911. Here is a few important excerpts:
"The movement which interests us in connection with our spiritual-scientific point of view, and which we may call an extraordinarily dangerous error in a certain sense, is the movement known in the external world as Jesuitism. In Jesuitism we encounter a dangerous exaggeration of the Jesus-Principle. In the other movement, which for centuries has existed in Europe as Rosicrucianism, we have an inward Christ-movement which above all seeks carefully for the ways of truth."
.......

"In reaction against many other spiritual streams in Europe, the opposite way was taken by those who are usually called Jesuits. The radical, fundamental difference between what we justifiably call the Christian way of the Spirit and the Jesuit way of the Spirit, which gives a one-sided exaggeration to the Jesus-Principle, is that the intention of the Jesuit way is to work directly, at all times, upon the Will. The difference is clearly shown in the method by which the pupil of Jesuitism is educated. Jesuitism is not to be taken lightly, or merely exoterically, but also esoterically, for it is rooted in esotericism. It is not, however, rooted in the spiritual life that is poured out through the symbol of Pentecost, but it seeks to root itself directly in the Jesus-element of the Son, which means in the Will; and thereby it exaggerates the Jesus-element of the Will."
.......

"This will be seen when we now enquire into the esoteric part of Jesuitism, its various spiritual exercises. How were these exercises arranged? The essential point is that every single pupil of Jesuitism goes through exercises which lead into the occult life, but into the Will, and within the field of occultism they hold the Will in severe discipline; they ‘break it in’, one might say. And the significant fact is that this discipline of the Will does not arise merely from the surface of life, but from something deeper, because the pupil has been led into the occult, in the way just indicated."
.......

"These ideas, gathered up into a single resolution of the Will, can certainly give the Will immense strength. But we must ask: what is it in the soul-life that has been directly attacked? The element that ought to be regarded as intrinsically holy, the element that ought not to be touched — the Will-element. In so far as this Jesuit training lays hold of the Will-element, while the Jesus-idea seizes the Will-element completely, in so far is the concept of the dominion of Jesus exaggerated in the most dangerous way — dangerous because through it the Will becomes so strong that it can work directly upon the Will of another. For where the Will becomes so strong through Imaginations, which means by occult methods, it acquires the capacity for working directly upon the Will of another, and hence also along all the other occult paths to which such a Will can have recourse."


So the interested reader can perhaps comprehend, that it is a quite serious matter we are dealing with here. The situation at H. P. Blavatsky's and Rudolf Steiner's time was a bit different than today, but not much. Some of the changes we as spiritual students are able to watch is for instance the arrival and importance given to a Roman Catholic sect named Opus Dei. Here the members blend invisibly into society. Opus Dei is today well-documentet to in fact be based on the teaching of the Jesuits. This have been shown from several independant sources. Opus Dei's main teaching "Camino" could be mentioned. And when we learn that the teachings of Opus Dei was founded at General Franco's stronghold in the town of Burgos it should not be a surprise. ODAN (Opus Dei Awareness Network) and several other independant sources have their documented views.

Similarily there are today certain groups of protestants whose methods have been more political and targetted to be almost identical to the Jesuits teachings or false Christian teachings. These have in the latest years been seen in USA, but also in several EU countries. It is wellknown that some Protestant branches in USA are almost more Catholic than they are Protestant in their agendas.

Quite astonishing we witness that Alice A. Bailey writes almost nothing at all about the "Jesuits" and false Christian magicians.


PART ONE

When one, as some of us have done, has spent several days on studying the officially collected writings of Alice A. Bailey, one gather together an overview of the total expression of this teaching and the thoughtsystem, which was behind when the various books of the collection was printed and the time of their printing. We talk about a collection of books whose number of pages and words are many times more than famous books like The Bible, The Quran, and The Bhagavad Gita just to mention a few well known central religious books, which are important to a huge number of people these days.

One also gathers together an overview of the impact these books have and have had on us present day people with our societies, cultures and religions. And of course also the impact these books have and have had on New Age groups, New religious people and similar.


When one have read the books by Alice A. Bailey, it could be an advantage to reach the following problematic conclusions.
  1. The books by Alice A. Bailey lacks a multicultural angle
    The books by Alice A. Bailey is today not an expression of a balanced multicultural presentation of theosophy or of a balanced multicultural presentation of honest esoteric teachings. Christian expressions and words are given much more coverage than eastern and linguistically more precise expressions and words. Similarly we have that Christianity and Christian expressions get much more covering than the three other of the worlds four greatest world religions. The four being Hinduism, Buddhism, Islam and Christinaity.

    The target group of these books was or is apparently mainly western and Christian in nature. But in these times of the Internet and heavy multicultural exchange, one can easily reach problems by using such an angle of theosophical presentation. It is especially true, when major parts of Christianity are under heavy influence by the "Jesuits" or better known as false Christians. A group which H. P. Blavatsky continously warned against. We talk about influences, which today are realities although they today have changed in shape when compared with the time of H. P. Blavatsky and even later in Alice A. Bailey's time.


  2. The words and expressions in the books by Alice A. Bailey
    The fact is that the books by Alice A. Bailey have at heavy use of Christian expression and terminology. This is creating the situation, that a great number of well-meaning readers by the books are being kept down in some Christian-related thought-patterns, which do not really have any sound capability to liberate the readers thought-patterns spiritually, theosophically and especially multiculturally.

    Words and sentences have vibrations, and when they are being read movements of energy are being set in motion, which have an impact on the surroundings. Some languages and words are more phallic and chauvinistic than others. Some languages are more esoteric than others. These languages embraces more advanced words used to describe spiritual and theosophical realities and situations, and which is not infiltrated by false esoteric teaching and phallic or dogmatic expressions, like so many of the western languages are. H. P. Blavatsky knew about this, and therefore she didn't use Christian terminology in excess.


  3. Alice A. Bailey ignores The Middle Eastern culture and religiousity
    The Middle East and its main religion Islam or their theosophical Sufi's are almost not mentioned at all in the books by Alice A. Bailey. Instead we find that Christianity get very heavy coverage. The area of the Middle East are left out in the cold too much when viewed with the eyes of the esoteric and also when viewed with present days eyes. The Middle Eastern worldview are so to speak frozen out and made a closed book. Blavatsky can be said to have been a great deal more balanced in her coverage of this issue, even if we take the time of her authorship into account.


  4. The books by Alice A. Bailey in the years after September 9th, 2001
    The books by Alice A. Bailey can because of that not be said to be targeting a Middle Eastern audience. The consequences of this issue, will soon be visible in the present changed situations in the world after the terror attack on the September 9th, 2001. Today the audience is quite different and the readers of the books are from other countries, when compared to the time of the publishing of the books. People also live in a different world.

    The books in mention have until recently been easily available on the Internet to everybody. But, the responsible behind the books, Lucis Trust, have sought to withdraw the books from the Internet without clearly informing officially why. Still the books, or some of them, are accessible at the time of writing april year 2007 or as the Krishna-Hindu's probably would say: year 5109.


  5. The books by Alice A. Bailey and the involvement by Lucis Trust in politics and UN
    Different Alice A. Bailey groups or groupings, who take their main teachings from the teachings by Alice A. Bailey are closely connected with international political work in the international political body known as The United Nations (UN). Such a close connection to The United Nations cannot be said to be in accordance with the original teachings, laid down by the founders of Theosophy, such as H. P. Blavatsky, Master Morya and others. The cause to this change in esoterical activity is not clearly and sufficiently explained by Alice A. Bailey or present day Lucis Trust.


  6. The books by Alice A. Bailey are dangerous!?
    True esoteric and theosophical teaching always takes the time, place, people and circumstances etc. into account together with the teachings being presented or taught. The books by Alice A. Bailey with their almost negation-Middle-Eastern content can therefore today be said to be directly dangerous and irrelevant to promote as a main teaching to a globally oriented audience in these our times with fast transportation, Internet and Satellite TV. Times with tension between the Middle East and the Western worlds various groups of persons and governments, Christianity included.


  7. Selfcontradictions in the books by Alice A. Bailey
    Despite that the books written by Alice A. Bailey clearly uses Christian words and expressions a whole lot, we witness that Alice A. Bailey says, that the Freemasons use of Judaic and Christian words should end. This seems strange and self contradicting when she in her own books emphasises the use of Christian and Judaic words and terms in almost all of her books, AND emphasises The New Testament and for instance her Great Invocation. In connection with this we aught to remember, that the words Lucifer and The Evil are relative realities, which quite often are viewed narrow mindedly by the beginner-aspirants. More information about Alice A. Bailey's above view, the readers can find in the following book by Alice A. Bailey. (Alice A. Bailey's "The rays and the Initiations" - The Aspirant and the Mysteries of Initiation, English Edition, Page 418.)


  8. Alice A. Bailey and her so-called Master D. K. have a strange view upon The New Testament

    I will by examples in the following show the readers, why Alice A. Bailey's books to a certain extend are in disagreement with the teachings of H. P. Blavatsky. The disagreement is important, and aught not to be underestimated these days, where the Truth, which we all love, is more imortant than ever.

    Alice A. Bailey writes in her book "Light of the Soul" (The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali - 1927, with commentary by Alice A. Bailey) page 13:

    "There are three books which should be in the hands of every student, the Bhagavad Gita, the New Testament, and the Yoga Sutras, for in these three is contained a complete picture of the soul and its unfoldment." ..."In the New Testament there is depicted for us the life of a Son of God in full manifestation, wherein, freed from every veil, the soul in its true nature walks the earth. It becomes apparent to us, as we study the life of Christ, what it means to develop the powers of the soul, to attain liberation, and become, in full glory, a God walking on earth."

    It seems strange that, there is no mention of the Tibetan Gupta-Vidya teachings often mentioned by H. P. Blavatsky and for instance the Quran of Islam. And why is for instance the Quran not as equally important to read as the New Testament? The above statement is also as we here clearly can see a departure from H. P. Blavatsky's theosophical teachings on the Bible. H. P. Blavatsky writes namely the following in one of her articles and similar in other articles:
    "In the last quarter of the nineteenth century, when the latest international revision of the Bible-that infallible and revealed Word of God!-reveals 64,000 mistranslations and other mistakes, it is not the Theosophists-a large number of whose members are English patriots and men of learning-but rather the Christians who ought to beware of "wanton aggressiveness" against people of other creeds. Their boomerangs may fly back from some unexpected parabola and hit the throwers. " (H. P. Blavatsky's article "NOT A CHRISTIAN"! , written 25. Feb. 1879.)
    And we remember, that the Christian Bible only spans a few thousand pages. So if, Blavatsky are right in her words, it will have as a consequence that almost each and every verse in the Bible have errors or mistranslations. So why this stranges emphasis on The New Testament, which Blavatsky never praised in her writings? H. P. Blavatsky more than once spoke highly about the Bhagavad Gita and Patanjali's Yoga Sutra's in her excellent book The Secret Doctrine and other writings, but she never did that about the Bible. And The Secret Doctrine was claimed by H. P. Blavatsky to have been approved of by the Masters. And that is something, that Alice A. Bailey recognises.

    And as we can see, there are in the following much more about the strange Bailey-bible-tendencies.
    Alice A. Bailey (and her so-called Master D. K.) wrote in her book The Reappearance of the Christ - Chapter I (Page 28-9):
    "There are in the Gospel story (as testimony to this divinely progressing unfoldment) four recorded moments wherein this universal or monadic realization showed itself. Let us look at each one of them for a moment:"
    And here Alice A. Bailey goes on with quotes from the gospels of The New Testament, which H. P. Blavatsky tells us are filled with errors.

    Here is one quote from the same or next page of the book The Reappearance of the Christ - Chapter I (Page 28-9):
    "The final words of the Christ to His apostles were, "Lo, I am with you all the days, even unto the end of the age" or cycle. (Matt., XXVIII, 20.) The important word is "end." The word used is the Greek "sun-teleia," which means the end of the time period, with another immediately following after (what would be called the end of a cycle). In Greek the final end is another word "telos." In Matt., XXIV, 6, "but the end is not yet," the other word telos is used for it means "the end of the first period has not yet been reached."


    The following shows us the problems Alice A. Bailey has, because she so often uses quotes from the The New Testament, and does it, without telling the truth like H. P. Blavatsky does in the below quotes:

    Alice A. Bailey are often quoting from the Gospel by Matthew without making the readers aware of, that it according to H. P. Blavatsky is a forgery and a false gospel.

    H.P. Blavatsky says:
    "The present volumes have been written to small purpose if they have not shown, 1, that Jesus, the Christ-God, is a myth concocted two centuries after the real Hebrew Jesus died; 2, that, therefore, he never had any authority to give Peter, or any one else, plenary power; 3, that even if he had given such authority, the word Petra (rock) referred to the revealed truths of the Petroma, not to him who thrice denied him; and that besides, the apostolic successon is a gross and palpable fraud; 4, that the Gospel according to Matthew is a fabrication based upon a wholly different manuscript. The whole thing, therefore, is an imposition alike upon priest and penitent. " (H.P. Blavatsky: Isis Unveiled, Vol II, p.544).
    Petroma is the Interpretor (in Aramaic) and it is also the doctrine written on the stone tablets of Hermes also named Thoth, known as The Book of Enoch. Petroma is the Book Pet-Roma"; that is, the "Book of the Grand Interpreter," the words, of Hermes, the great "Interpreter of the Gods." Jehoshua Ben Perahiah og Jesus knew about the mysteries of Egypt and they came and in lived in Egypt. Further we have that The interpretation by The Catholic Church of the divine power given to the Pope is wrong and the apostolic successon is a gross and palpable fraud. We especially witness this, when we read their own infallible Gospel by Matthew, 23:8-9:
    "23:8. But be not you called Rabbi. For one is your master: and all you are brethren.
    Vos autem nolite vocari rabbi unus enim est magister vester omnes autem vos fratres estis
    23:9. And call none your father upon earth; for one is your father, who is in heaven.
    Et patrem nolite vocare vobis super terram unus enim est Pater vester qui in caelis est"
    When The New Testament clearly contradicts the Pope doctrine, which formulates a rule that the Pope can come with infallible statements, while talking ex cathedra, the lie and fraud seems to have no limits. It is quite clear to all of us, that the Gopsel of Matthew is a fabrication, when we read the words of St. Jerome about his translation af the Gospel in mention. Here he is protesting to two Bishops about their wishes of deceit. (The Collected Writings of H. P. Blavatsky; vol. 9, page 225 and footnote, english edition).

    H.P. Blavatsky also says:
    "I say the scholars are either lying or talking nonsense. Our Masters affirm the statement. If the story of Jehoshua or Jesus Ben-Pandira is false, then the whole Talmud, the whole Jewish Canon is false. He was the disciple of Jehoshua Ben Perahiah, the fifth President of the Sanhedrin after Ezra who re-wrote the Bible. Compromised in the revolt of the Pharisees against Jannaeus in 105 B.C., he fled into Egypt carrying the young Jesus with him. This account is far truer than that of the New Testament which has no record in history." (H.P. Blavatsky: Esotericism of Christian Dogma, in Collected Writings, Vol. VIII, page 380).
    H.P. Blavatsky also says:
    "...I deny in toto the Christ invented by the Church, as well as all the doctrines, all the interpretations, and all the dogmas, ancient and modern, concerning that personage..." (H.P. Blavatsky: REPLY TO THE MISTAKEN CONCEPTIONS OF THE ABBÉ ROCA CONCERNING MY OBSERVATIONS ON CHRISTIAN ESOTERICISM, in Collected Writings, Vol. IX, page 216).

    I think I have hereby clearly shown that Alice A. Bailey and her so-called Master D. K. have very strange manners, because they are giving undue respect to the four gospels in the New Testament. It is important to understand, that the books by Alice A. Bailey never mentions the above issues mentioned by H. P. Blavatsky in any manner what so ever, except in wague terms a few times stating something similar to, that, the Orthodox Christianity have "emphasized theological doctrine, and not love and loving understanding as Christ exemplified it. The Church has preached the fiery Saul of Tarsus and not the gentle Carpenter of Galilee." (The Reappearance of the Christ - Chapter I; Page 11-13).

    And I am only telling you this, because I care about the truth, and know as many others do, that the four gospels of New Testament are at best only allegories. There are only small historical truth in them. Yet the allegories can be useful to some, and to others they are certainly not useful. It is a book filled with errors and mistranlations.

    Just about the same can be said about the collected writings and life expressions of the priest C W. Leadbeater and the politician Annie Besant on their relations to Jesus and Christianity. Some will perhaps say I am to cold, when saying this, but they will do well in remembering both personalities activities before, during and after the Leadbeater sex-abuse scandal year 1906-8 and the Krishnamurti affair in year 1929. Of course I am not saying that they only did bad. But, we will know people on their fruits, and especially their deeds. Indeed they both of them did help people and did a lot of good. But, on the other hand they did not distance themselves clearly from the false Chrisitan's, the Jesuits and Dugpa's in the Vatican of Rome. And the last issue is a problem even today. Let their present day recommenders learn a lesson and remember the words by Master KH which follows in the next lines; the "opposition represents enormous vested interests."

    The four gospels of The New Testament are according to H. P. Blavatsky not using the seven esoterical keys (keys used by the initiated when writing). They have been written using false keys, said H. P. Blavatsky. (H. P. Blavatsky's Collected Writings, vol. 9, p. 224-5). Alice A. Bailey never writes a word about this.
    Master KH said:

    For the opposition represents enormous vested interests, and they have enthusiastic help from the Dugpas -- in Bhootan and the Vatican!
    (Here is all of Mahtama Letter, No. 55.)

    This Dugpa situation in the 1880'ies have we think unfortunately not disappeared like a magicians rabbit without a trace just because we are living in the 21th century. And especailly not when no theosophical teachers have clearly given out any explanation on why or if it should be so? So we ask retorically, what is really going on in the various Theosophical circles. Is it a state of ignorance or perhaps even deceit, which are ruling the various groups, since the time when H. P. Blavatsky and the Masters disappeared from public view!? Sometimes one get the feeling, that the various Alice A. Bailey groups favorite Master D. K. is laughing inside the Vatican.

    The following from Alice A. Bailey's own hand shows the problem even more clearly:

    From Bethlehem to Calvary
    "From the rational point of view, the question as to the historical accuracy of His story remains as yet unsolved, though His teaching upon the Fatherhood of God and the brotherhood of man is endorsed by the best minds of the race."

    "There is life and truth and vitality in the Gospel story yet to be reapplied by us. There is dynamic and divinity in the message of Jesus."
    (From Bethlehem to Calvary - Chapter One, page 4 and 9-10, from the online edition)



    And H. P. Blavatsky writes the following:
    "The legend of which I speak is founded, as I have demonstrated over and over again in my writings and my notes, on the existence of a personage called Jehoshua (from which Jesus has been made) born at Lüd or Lydda about 120 years before the modern era. And if this fact is denied—to which I can hardly object—one must resign oneself to regard the hero of the drama of Calvary as a myth pure and simple. As a matter of fact, in spite of all the desperate research made during long centuries, if we set aside the testimony of the “Evangelists,” i.e., unknown men whose identity has never been established, and that of the Fathers of the Church, interested fanatics, neither history, nor profane tradition, neither official documents, nor the contemporaries of the soi-disant drama, are able to provide one single serious proof of the historical and real existence, not only of the Man-God but even of him called Jesus of Nazareth, from the year 1 to the year 33. All is darkness and silence." (H. P. Blavatsly's Collected Writings, vol. 9, p. 225-6)

    H. P. Blavatsky refers to it as a fact, that Jesus was born in Lydda or Lod year 120 BC. A fact which Alice A. Bailey and her Master D. K. apperently are not aware of. And yet we have the word, that the Masters affirm Blavatsky's view. I think we easily can conclude, that Alice A. Bailey and her Master D. K. are not on a level where they are able to look at The New Testament in an objective manner.

    Just two more strange examples out of many written by Alice A. Bailey.


    From Bethlehem to Calvary
    "Christ, the perfect Man, hung upon the Cross for "three hours," and in that time each of the three aspects of His nature was carried to the highest point of its capacity for realization and for consequent suffering. At the end, this triple personality gave vent to the cry, "My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?" Christ had passed through all the climaxing episodes of adjustment. The Transfiguration experience was only just over."
    (From Bethlehem to Calvary - Chapter Five - The Crucifixion, page 219-220, from the online edition)

    Problems of Humanity
    "It is essential that we return to Christ and to His message and to the way of life exemplified by Him."
    (Problems of Humanity - Chapter IV - The Problem of the Racial Minorities, page 124-5, from the online edition)


    I will have to disagree with Alice A. Bailey about such a promotion of esoterical teachings. The above denigrations and distortions of theosophical teachings in the above quotes by Alice A. Bailey are clearly not in agreement with the teachings given out by H. P. Blavatsky. We know , that H. P. Blavatsky clearly more than one time said, that the Gospel of Matthew was false, and she said that the words "My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?" (St. Matt., XXVII, 46.) should in truth be read as "My God, my God, how thou dost glorify me!". The hebrew words are given in this reference (H. P. Blavatsly's Collected Writings, vol. 14, p. 147).

    And also this blurred recognition of the essential return to "Christ and to His message and to the way of life exemplified by Him" by Alice A. Bailey and her so-called Adept named D.K. is not theosophical teaching, but rather "Jesuits" or something similar doing their best to distort the theosophical teachings. At least it is such we experience it when we evaluate the books written by Alice A. Bailey and her so-called Master D. K. How can Alice A. Bailey and her so-called master D.K. talk about the life of Christ, when they nowhere clarify as H. P. Blavatsky does, that he is totally and utterly falsely portrayed in the New Testament gospels, and that he as a FACT was born in Lod or Lydda year 120 BC. (and not 105 BC. as the LCC priest C. W. Leadbeater claimed)?

    H. P. Blavatsky wrote:
    "This theory of the seven keys, the Church, according to the Abbé Roca, has simplified “without disfiguring it,” reducing the keys to three; while, on the contrary, it has fabricated three false keys which do not open anything. The legend of which I speak is founded, as I have demonstrated over and over again in my writings and my notes, on the existence of a personage called Jehoshua (from which Jesus has been made) born at Lüd or Lydda about 120 years before the modern era. And if this fact is denied—to which I can hardly object—one must resign oneself to regard the hero of the drama of Calvary as a myth pure and simple. As a matter of fact, in spite of all the desperate research made during long centuries, if we set aside the testimony of the “Evangelists,” i.e., unknown men whose identity has never been established, and that of the Fathers of the Church, interested fanatics, neither history, nor profane tradition, neither official documents, nor the contemporaries of the soi-disant drama, are able to provide one single serious proof of the historical and real existence, not only of the Man-God but even of him called Jesus of Nazareth, from the year 1 to the year 33. All is darkness and silence."
    (H. P. Blavatsly's Collected Writings, vol. 9, p. 225-6).


    And there is not much esoterical value in the teachings of the gospel, with its many errors and writings based on false keys of the seven keys used by the initiated. Just compare the above quotes by H. P. Blavatsky with the above ones by Alice A. Bailey. I have to clearly raise my voice in protest against a great number of Alice A. Bailey groups in connection with these issues. I have to clearly raise my voice distance myself from such a teaching and those teachers who promotes such a view with emphasis on the Alice A. Bailey's books, when they do not take H. P. Blavatsky's views in the above into account, or when they devalue the importance of what Blavatsky said, and especially what she said about the Jesuits and false Christians. Something Alice A. Bailey clearly forgot when we talk about Jesus and the Gospels in The New Testament.

    However, I do hope, that all theosophists at least almost can agree with Alice A. Bailey's and her Master D.K.'s on the following:
    "It is this distorted presentation of truth which has led humanity to the formulation of a body of doctrines about which Christ apparently knew nothing. Christ cared only that men should recognize that God is love, that all men are the children of the one Father and, therefore, brothers; that man's spirit is eternal and that there is no death; He longed that the Christ within every man (the innate Christ consciousness which makes us one with each other and with Christ) should flower forth in all its glory; He taught that service was the keynote of the spiritual life and that the will of God would be revealed. These are not the points about which the mass of commentators have written. They have discussed ad nauseam how far Christ was divine and how far He was human, the nature of the Virgin Birth, the function of St. Paul as a teacher of Christian truth, the nature of hell, salvation through blood, and the authenticity and historicity of the Bible."
    (Problems of Humanity - Chapter V - The Problem of the Churches, page 128-9, from the online edition)

    "The present program of the Catholic Church has definite political implications; their attitude to Communism has in it the seeds of another world war. The political activities of the Catholic Church have not built for peace, no matter under what guise they are presented."
    (Problems of Humanity - Chapter V - The Problem of the Churches, page 130-1, from the online edition)


    First we aught to be aware of that the book "Problems of Humanity" has been revised several times since Alice A. Bailey departed from her physical body. The original first edition of the book is today rare. Another giant problem though is, that Alice A. Bailey calls Christ a "He" and thereby a gigantic male. And I do hope, that the honest reader will understand the last quotes implications even if we agree a whole lot with its content. Because the Alice A. Bailey organisation cannot today with its activities in the political body The United Nations be said to be in accordance with the theosophical teachings as they originally were presented by H. P. Blavatsky about 50 years earliere. To be directly Involved in politics was not a part of the theosophical teaching given out by H. P. Blavatsky. This sudden change in behaviour have as far as I have learned not been explained by Alice A. Bailey. And the fact that Alice A. Bailey and her Master D. K. in the above clearly seem to denigrate or down play the importance of the low level of authenticity and historicity of the Bible, is directly in opposition to the teachings by H. P. Blavatsky. Just look at the above quotes I have given by H. P. Blavatsky. And all in all, the bottom line seems clearly to be, that Alice A. Bailey's and her Master D.K.'s teachings about Jesus and the gospels have too many inconsistencies and faults, which are not acceptable as theosophical teachings as they were given by H. P. Blavatsky.



  9. Mohammedanism is a hybrid offshoot of Christianity with the tinge of Judaism?

    The extra credits given by Alice A. Bailey to the religion of the Christian's are showing themselves at several places in her writings and books. The following is one of the more problematic examples. Alice A. Bailey writes the following around the year 1936, when her book named Esoteric Psychology, vol. 1 was published.

    The quote is from the English edition, Esoteric Psychology, vol. 1, page 167-8:
    "Every great religion which arises is under the influence of one or other of the rays, but it does not necessarily follow that each successive ray should have a great far-reaching religion as its outcome. We have heard that Brahmanism is the last great religion which arose under first ray influence; we do not know what may have been the religion which was the outcome of the last second ray period; but the Chaldean, the Egyptian and the Zoroastrian religions may be taken as representing the third, the fourth, and the fifth rays respectively. Christianity and probably Buddhism were the result of sixth ray influence. Mohammedanism, which numbers so large a following, is also under sixth ray influence, but it is not a great root religion, being a hybrid offshoot of Christianity with the tinge of Judaism. "
    I would say, that H. P. Blavatsky hardly can be said to be in agreement with the above view by Alice A. Bailey, especially because of her article in the above "NOT A CHRSITAN!" and also her article "THEOSOPHY OR JESUITISM?" (about the theosophical opposition). The reason is, that the statement in the above by Alice A. Bailey almost or clearly turns the Christian religion into something special when compared with Islam. This, even when one only can say, that the Christian religion only is a further development or branch of the somewhat artificial Judaic religion. One could in truth say, that Christianity is a hybrid ofshoot of Judaism with a tinge of Jesuitism.

    (The Jews religious teachings about the Cabala originates from the Middle East or the East from The 'Faithful Brothers of Basra' or as they are known 'Ikhwan al Safa', the 'Sincere Brethren'. 'Ikhwan al Safa' were a special esoteric group of Sufi's or early theosophists. The original eight Sephiroth elements of the Cabala was changed to teen by a Jew around the middle of the 11th century. All this according to an earlier edition of the Jews very own "The Jewish Encyclopaedia" from 1905. One can read here about The original eight Sephiroth even if this article has a few faults it is useful to read in connection with this issue.)

    This, Blavatsky was no doubt at least partly aware of. One realises this if one closely reads her various scripts and books. Alice A. Bailey seems to be quite unaware of this important fact. When she mentions the Sephiroth of the Cabala, she quite vaguely primarily refers to them as nine in number. (See: A treatise on Cosmic Fire, pp. 4, 692-3, 941-2, 971, 1143. This is the only Alice Bailey book where the sephiroth are mentioned.). And when the followers of the Alice A. Bailey books claim the Cabala to be of Jewish origin, they are not telling the truth. One can with advantage compare this with the diagram of the Chaldean and Gupta-Vidya Cabala shown in The Secret Doctrine written by H. P. Blavatsky, vol 1., p. 200. And by reading Blavatsky's comments to this diagram, I think one will understand it all much better.

    My view is, that to me, the above view upon Islam clearly are establishing problems and I would therefore reconsider recommending the books written by Alice A. Bailey to anyone. We aught to remember, that the above words by Alice A. Bailey on Islam was written in 1936, and that the Nazi dictator Hitler reached power as leader of Germany in 1933. The persecutions of the jews was already up and running in 1936, when Alice A. Bailey published her book. Take especially note of the racial laws from Nuremberg called "Gesetz zum Schutze des deutschen Blutes und der deutschen Ehre", from September 5th, 1935. (This is something Alice A. Bailey must have heard about before her book Esoteric Psychology, vol. 1 was printed. The laws and the ugly events following them was written about in the newspapers at the time.)

    These issues do not promote the above quote from the book by Alice A. Bailey on Islam in a manner, which makes it less problematic, especially when we consider the year it was published, 1936. And Christianity is after all just as much a "hybrid offshoot" of Judaism with a tinge of the "almighty knows what" as the religion of Islam is. Even today, it is quite problematic with such a strange promotion of teachings and emphasis on Christianity coming from Alice A. Bailey. We know, that Blavatsky viewed Christianity with grave eyes, among other things because of the Jesuits influence on it and the Vatican with its pope. In one of the so-called Mahatma Letters to A. P. Sinnett, the Master known as K. H. states clearly, that the Vatican in Rome is a place where Black Magic is performed. You can look at the letter online here: Mahatma Letter no. 55 (English edition).

    I have hereby not said, that some of the various leaders of Islam is not equally problematic when compared to the magical activities in and around the Vatican in Rome.


    H. P. Blavatsky wrote (Posthumously published in 1896):
    "Therefore one may repeat in full confidence the remark made by Cardinal Ventura on the devil—only applying it to black magic.“The greatest victory of Satan was gained on that day when he succeeded in making himself denied.”

    It may be said further, that “Black magic reigns over Europe as an all-powerful, though unrecognized, autocrat,” its chief conscious adherents and practical servants being found in the Roman Church, and its unconscious practitioners in the Protestant. The whole body of the so-called “privileged” classes of society in Europe and America is honeycombed with unconscious black magic, or sorcery of the vilest character."
    (H. P. Blavatsky's Collected Writings, vol. 13, p.256-257 )


All the above problematic issues are just some of the issues, which the books by Alice A. Bailey and some of the lecturers on these book are promoting. And some readers of the books are also promoting them. This in a time where there are greater international political and religious tensions between the West with its Christianity and the Middle East with its Islam. And also in a time where the Pope in Rome are seeking to get the Christian religion and its religious values written into the treaty of the European Union. And where influential and high-level politicians are supporting the idea.



PART TWO

The books by Alice A. Bailey are not the psychological key to the Secret Doctrine.


In the following we will with great certainty be able to show, that the book "A Treatise on Cosmic Fire" written by Alice A. Bailey in 1925, was not the psychological key to The Secret Doctrine written by H. P. Blavatsky. We have to remember the not unimportant issue, that the Theosophical Teaching at all times adapts its teachings to the time, place, circumstances and the people involved.

First we will use five quotes and analyse them. All the quotes can at the time of writing be found on the Internet written in their original English language. Of the five quotes in the below, the three of them are written by H. P. Blavatsky, and they clearly seem to rule out, that there could have been a "messenger" (like for instance Alice A. Bailey) from the Masters before the year 1975. The conclusion must be, that Alice A. Bailey are not in any particular manner true in her written words about being this messenger. She and her authorship are hardly a "messenger" from the Masters as mentioned by H. P. Blavatsky. She was rather a "messenger" from a person, who had a lower spiritual level, and who had dangerous Christian tendencies in the aura.

  1. First we have the quotes from Alice A. Bailey and her husband Foster Bailey
    Read in particular at the following, which we know, that Foster Bailey wrote in her early book from 1925 named "A Treatise on Cosmic Fire". Foster Bailey wrote:
    "In A Treatise on Cosmic Fire the Tibetan has given us what H. P. Blavatsky prophesied he would give, namely, the psychological key to the Cosmic Creation. H.P.B. stated that in the 20th century a disciple would come who would give the psychological key to her own monumental work The Secret Doctrine on which treatise the Tibetan worked with her; and Alice A. Bailey worked in complete recognition of her own task in this sequence. Tunbridge Wells, December 1950 Foster Bailey"
    That, is quite a statement coming there from a 33rd degree Fremason of the Scottish Rite. Especially, when we know, that at the time of writing (and even today) was several Freemason Lodges in USA, who on their sacred Altar of freemasonry had chosen the holy book to be the Bible of the Christians, even in the King James version. Though we know, that some Lodges operated and operates esoterically. We know, that Freemasons, who also are known as the "Builders" and the "Designers", existed (and still do) in the Middle East, as esoteric Sufis. All talking and written words about these esoterical Sufis, are for some unknown reason almost non-existing and missing in the books written by Alice A. Bailey, as well as those written by Foster Bailey. Alice A. Bailey wrote:
    In Alice A. Bailey's book "The Unfinished Autobiography" we have the following statement in chapter five written in 1947: "In many ways today H.P.B.'s book The Secret Doctrine is out of date and its approach to the Ageless Wisdom has little or no appeal to the modern generation. But those of us who really studied it and arrived at some understanding of its inner significance have a basic appreciation of the truth that no other book seems to supply. H.P.B. said that the next interpretation of the Ageless Wisdom would be a psychological approach, and A Treatise on Cosmic Fire, which I published in 1925, is the psychological key to The Secret Doctrine. None of my books would have been possible [215] had I not at one time made a very close study of The Secret Doctrine."


  2. Secondly we have the three quotes by H. P. Blavatsky.
    Now try carefully to compare the below three quotes by H. P. Blavatsky with the above two quotes, and pay attention to the problems of truth, which the quotes by Alice A. Bailey and Foster Bailey are facing. Be assured, that it is not H. P. Blavatsky who are in error.

    A great number of readers and followers of the Alice A. Bailey books have quoted the following written by H. P. Blavatsky, and used it as evidence on that Alice A. Bailey was the expected "messenger" or disciple sent from the Masters in the 20th century.
    2.1 H. P. Blavatsky wrote the following in her famous book The Secret Doctrine (Volume I + II):

    "The same may be said of the whole Esoteric system. One turn of the key, and no more, was given in "ISIS." Much more is explained in these volumes. In those days the writer hardly knew the language in which the work was written, and the disclosure of many things, freely spoken about now, was forbidden. In Century the Twentieth some disciple more informed, and far better fitted, may be sent by the Masters of Wisdom to give final and irrefutable proofs that there exists a Science called Gupta-Vidya; and that, like the once-mysterious sources of the Nile, the source of all religions and philosophies now known to the world has been for many ages forgotten and lost to men, but is at last found.

    Such a work as this has to be introduced with no simple Preface, but with a volume rather; one that would give facts, not mere disquisitions, since the SECRET DOCTRINE is not a treatise, or a series of vague theories, but contains all that can be given out to the world in this century."
    (H. P. Blavatsky "The Secret Doctrine", vol. 1., ULT-edition, Facsimile of the original edition from 1888 ).
    The below two paragraphs are now added, and we witness, that Alice A. Bailey's and Foster Bailey's claims about Alice A. Bailey's authorship where they give her credit to have written The Psychological Key to The Secret Doctrine are not that clearly in accordance with the truth.
    2.2 Further I add the following taken from one of the 14 volumes of "The Collected Writings", a great collection containing most of the written words by H. P. Blavatsky:

    "Let every member [of Esoteric Section] know, moreover, that the time for such priceless acquisition is limited. The writer of the present is old; her life is well-nigh worn out, and she may be summoned "home" any day and almost any hour. And if her place is even filled up, perchance by another worthier and more learned than herself, still there remain but twelve Page 492 years to the last hour of the term--namely, till December the 31st, 1899. Those who will not have profited by the opportunity (given to the world in every last quarter of a century), those who will not have reached a certain point of psychic and spiritual development, or that point from which begins the cycle of adeptship, by that day--those will advance no further than the knowledge already acquired. No Master of Wisdom from the East will himself appear or send any one to Europe or America after that period, and the sluggards will have to renounce every chance of advancement in their present incarnation--until the year 1975. Such is the LAW, for we are in Kali Yuga--the Black Age--and the restrictions in this cycle, the first 5,000 years of which will expire in 1897, are great and almost insuperable."
    (HPB's Collected Writings, Vol XII, s. 491-492. Engelsk online-edition. Italics added).


    2.3 And also the following from "The Key to Theosophy" by H. P. Blavatsky:

    "...that during the last quarter of every hundred years an attempt is made by those "Masters," of whom I have spoken, to help on the spiritual progress of Humanity in a marked and definite way. Towards the close of each century you will invariably find that an outpouring or upheaval of spirituality -- or call it mysticism if you prefer -- has taken place. Some one or more persons have appeared in the world as their agents, and a greater or less amount of occult knowledge and teaching has been given out. If you care to do so, you can trace these movements back, century by century, as far as our detailed historical records extend...If the present attempt, in the form of our Society, succeeds better than its predecessors have done, then it will be in existence as an organized, living and healthy body when the time 307 comes for the effort of the XXth century. The general condition of men's minds and hearts will have been improved and purified by the spread of its teachings, and, as I have said, their prejudices and dogmatic illusions will have been, to some extent at least, removed. Not only so, but besides a large and accessible literature ready to men's hands, the next impulse will find a numerous and united body of people ready to welcome the new torch-bearer of Truth. He will find the minds of men prepared for his message, a language ready for him in which to clothe the new truths he brings, an organization awaiting his arrival, which will remove the merely mechanical, material obstacles and difficulties from his path. Think how much one, to whom such an opportunity is given, could accomplish. Measure it by comparison with what the Theosophical Society actually has achieved in the last fourteen years, without any of these advantages and surrounded by hosts of hindrances which would not hamper the new leader. Consider all this, and then tell me whether I am too sanguine when I say that if the Theosophical Society survives and lives true to its mission, to its original impulses through the next hundred years? Tell me, I say, if I go too far in asserting that earth will be a heaven in the twenty-first century in comparison with what it is now!
    (H. P. Blavatsky's book "Key to Theosophy", s. 306-7. English edition, Italics added.)



PART THREE

Conclusion about Alice A. Bailey's teachings and her Lucis Trust
When the reader have compared the above five quotes with each other, it seems to be more clear to all, that H. P. Blavatsky were right and true in her words, and that Alice A. Bailey were not right and true. Alice A. Bailey was as we know born in 1880 and was present in the physical when The Secret Doctrine was written by H. P. Blavatsky together with the Masters. Else we have, that H. P. Blavatsky and the Masters should deliberately have lied about the future activities and the content of The Secret Doctrine with the consequences this will have today. I say without hesitation, that H. P. Blavatsky's version is more true, because it clearly puts its finger at, that "towards the close of each century you will invariably find that an outpouring or upheaval of spirituality".

Alice A. Bailey's so-called "psychological key" are at best a western key. The one who according to H. P. Blavatsky would arrive was someone who would teach all of humanity and not only USA and the western countries. The world of Alice A. Bailey is most certainly a western world and with Christian tendencies. To name the books by Alice A. Bailey to be classical encyclopaedia's or compendiums directed to the New Age of humanity are hardly in accordance with the truth and true esoterical teaching. A teaching which clearly avoid keeping people entangled or even obsessed with Christian-related cultural thought-patterns.

We can hardly view Alice A. Bailey's version of "The Theosophical Society", today named named Lucis Trust, as of today as "an organized, living and healthy body" as mentioned by H. P. Blavatsky in the above. Because the influence of the teachings of Alice A. Bailey and her Lucis Trust cannot be called healthy as we have witnessed in the above quotes and words in this article. That must be clear to all readers.


About what happened when H. P. Blavatsky died
But, if, a teacher of the Wisdom tradition dies, (like H. P. Blavatsky did in 1891), or there is a gap in the teaching, what then? The interesting thing is, that the very gap is a part of the training. You may explain certain things to a child: shall we say teach her or him not to do certain things. Then you will pretend to go out of the house - and observe her or him. According to how well he/she has learned, so will he/she react. In this 'absence exercise', precisely the same thing happens to the teacher of Wisdom, though many are not conscious of it. - It is the same when a spiritual teacher or author dies or somehow disappears. Therefore the beginner Seekers aught to view the death of the Teacher and/or author in a quite different light, than they are used to.

The spiritual Teacher or author can be said to be "away" for a period of time. Then another spiritual Teacher and/or author will arrive.

Quite obviously the semi-blind among the people, during their 'waiting-period', will try to work out their own interpretation. They may, as have been done in the past, write books to explain what they have learned. This is the danger-point, because when a man/woman is accepted as, say, a philosopher (of wisdom) because she/he has written a book explaining a philosophy, he/she will not readily accept, that she/he only have been 'fumbling'. He/She has quite possibly become a prisoner of his/hers lower self. The self-conceit of the man/woman is now bound up with his/hers 'creation', the book or the method, which he/she has used to organise the fragments, which he/she has. He/she is probably or possibly lost - for the cause.

In order to break through this shell of accretions and fossilisations, the - second teacher - will tend to act in a different, perhaps in a certain dramatically different manner, from the original one. This could happen, to break the 'idols', which have been formed out of the thoughts, which were originally given. So very important: The use of ideas is to shape a man or woman, not to support a system - which is viewed in a limited manner. This is one way in which the Wisdom Tradition is 'living', and not just the perpetuations of ideas and movements. This seems important to understand and know about.

In view of the above, one will clearly be able to conclude, that the books written by Alice A. Bailey hardly can be said to be a new impulse of esoteric teaching given by the spiritual Masters or Mahatmas to humanity. - The fact that many Bailey theosophists around the globe has this opposite view is something, I am sure that the Masters and Adepts are looking at with eyes of concern. More truthfully there is and have been "dabbling" with the teachings going on, and an attempt to interpret the teachings into a more Christian light, with the sad consequences such an attempt has and has had. Yes, there is for sure presented a quite different teaching of a certain theosophical kind by Alice A. Bailey. A teaching, which certainly, as mentioned in the above, are able to break certain fossilised thought-patterns, which were given by H. P. Blavatsky, the Chelas and her Masters. Namely a teaching from Alice A. Bailey, which exactly helps to break down a good part of the thought-patterns especially given by H. P. Blavatsky and her Masters, which NOT promotes Christianity and the false magical Christians ("Jesuits"), and a teaching which Alice A. Bailey's teaching waters down by almost not mentioning anything at all about the black magic of the false magical Christians, which for centuries have been the strongest opponents to Theosophy.

I do hope, that the readers understand, that the last sentence is quite important!


Freemasonry and Lucis Trust
Idries Shah writes the following about King Salomon, which many of the freemason's are quite fond of:
"That the Templars were thinking in terms of the Sufi , and not the Solomonic, Temple in Jerusalem, and its building, is strongly suggested by one important fact. "Temple" churches which they erected, such as one in London, were modelled upon the Temple as found by the Crusaders, not upon any earlier building. This Temple was none other than the octagonal Dome of the Rock, built in the seventh century on a Sufi mathematical design, and restored in 913. The Sufi legend of the building of the Temple accords with the alleged Masonic version. As an example we may note that the "Solomon" of the Sufi Builders is not King Solomon but the Sufi "King" Maaruf Karkhi (died 815), disciple of David (Daud of Tai, died 781) and hence by extension considered the son of David, and referenced cryptically as Solomon - who was the son of David. The Great murder commemorated by the Sufi Builders is not that of the person (Hiram) supposed by the Masonic tradition to have been killed. The martyr of the Sufi Builders is Mansur el-Hallaj (858-922), juridically murdered because of the Sufi secret, which he spoke in a manner which could not be understood, and thus was dismembered as a heretic. The pillars of the Temple are not physical ones, but follow the Arabic custom of calling an individual (elder) a pillar. One of the Sufi pillars is Abulfaiz, sometimes called Abuazz. He is the great grandfather (third in teaching succession) of "David" (Maaruf Karkhi), and is none other than Thuban Abulfaiz Dhu'l-Nun the Egyptian, founder of the Malamati Order of Sufis, whose similarity to Freemasonry has often been pointed out. He died in 860 A.D., and is also known as the King and possessor of the Egyptian secrets."

It aught to be added, that even today, there exists evidence of earlier known builds than The Dome of the Rock, which are octagonal. I will also mention, that it has been documented, that Abd al-Malik (646-705) was behind the building of The Dome of the Rock in Jerusalem, and that he pointed out Raja' ibn Hayweh and Yazid ibn Salam to construct it. Dhu'l-Nun was in jail in Bhagdad in 829, but was released by orders of the Caliph in Bhagdad. Dhu'l-Nun died in Cairo in Egypt, and his tomb is found there even today.

Today a lot of influential groups claim the right to The Dome of the Rock in Jerusalem, But the question of ownership seems difficult to solve, because the reconstruction of the Mosque happened above a Christian owned building, which purpose of existence have never really been clarified. - But, all the talk about ownership of a building seems quite silly to us Seekers after Truth. To us it is not ownership of buildings and earthly goods which are of great importance. It is rather the ability to be unselfish and give freely to all.

The fact that Alice A. Bailey's husband Foster Bailey emphasised Freemasonry is no secret. But, he is probably going too far, when he adds that the Jews was behind the construction of Solomon's Temple in his book "The Spirit of Freemasonry", page 38. All in all, I would say, that Foster Bailey's presentation of the issues Idries Shah touches upon in the above are leading people into the dark wilderness rather than into the light. Even if certain Freemason's emphasises symbolic teachings, his presentation lacks a healthy relationship to our present day situation, because it is heavily influenced by Christian vocabulary and words, without emphasising the important influence the Middle East also had and has in Freemasonry. This quite important also happens without clearly enough distancing himself and his teaching to the Vatican in Rome.


The Jesuits plotting has a broad scope
The Seeker reading this can adequately consider, whether it is true, that the present day Jesuits or false Christian's for long have sought to infiltrate theosophy and the teachings by H. P. Blavatsky with imprecise and incorrect teachings, and by emphasising the Christian religion above other religions. All Seekers after Truth aught to know, that at the time when H. P. Blavatsky lived, the following was true.

I add the following written by H. P. Blavatsky's about the Freemason's and the Jesuit's.
"It is curious to note too that most of the bodies which work these, such as the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite, the Rite of Avignon, the Order of the Temple, Fessler's Rite, the 'Grand Council of the Emperors of the East and West -- Sovereign Prince Masons,' etc., etc., are nearly all the offspring of the sons of Ignatius Loyola. The Baron Hundt, Chevalier Ramsay, Tschoudy, Zinnendorf, and numerous others who founded the grades in these rites, worked under instructions from the General of the Jesuits. The nest where these high degrees were hatched, and no Masonic rite is free from their baleful influence more or less, was the Jesuit College of Clermont at Paris." (by Charles Sotheran, 1877 - published in H. P. Blavatsky's "Isis Unveiled", vol.2, p.390)
Spoken shortly and in a more present day language, we can say, that the highest degrees of the Freemasons of most groups, even today are heavily influenced by the Jesuit teachings. We remember, that the Bible of the Christians, who many view as infallible, are in a great number of Lodges even today placed upon the Lodges altars. It is no secret, that there even today exists militant Lodges, which looks like ordinary so-called peaceful Freemasonry Lodges. The fact, that a number of learned scholars and the like do not agree upon, that the highest degrees of Freemasonry arrived from the Jesuits at Clermont in Paris, the honest Seeker after Truth could consider. The question is, whether the scholars are right or H. P. Blavatsky and Charles Sotheran are right. One could ask why some seek to hide the truth about it.

H. P. Blavatsky wrote about the plot of the Jesuits
". . . . . It would be well perhaps, if the Jesuits contented themselves with making dupes of Freemasons and opposing the Theosophists and Occultists using for it the Protestant clergy as "cat's paw." But their plottings have a much wider scope, and embrace a minuteness of detail and care of which the world in general has no idea. Everything is done by them to bring the mass of mankind again to the state of passive ignorance which they well know is the only one which can help them to the consummation of their purpose of Universal Despotism."
(from THE LETTERS OF H. P. BLAVATSKY to A. P. SINNETT and OTHER MISCELLANEOUS LETTERS TRANSCRIBED, COMPILED, AND WITH AN INTRODUCTION By A. T. BARKER. First Published 1925)
I do know, that a lot of people care, and they say that theosophy or Theosophy aught to build bridges to other so-called religious and peaceful groups. But. It is only good as long, as it is not at the same time requires, that one builds a bridge in a manner, which distorts the theosophical teaching, and almost marries it with the teachings of the false Christians or "Jesuits", and their (unofficial) militant and magical Christian groups. Please bear in mind, that H. P. Blavatsky in her book The Secret Doctrine and in her writings as such brought attention to, that a thorough knowledge about the Metaphysical teachings is and was a requirement of the Seeker, before he or she started "dabbling" with mantras, astrology and other magical branches of the theosophical teachings. Without fullfilling this requirement, the Seeker will be in great risk of falling into sorcery and black magic. The following article could perhaps be helpful. H. P. Blavatsky's article "OCCULTISM VERSUS THE OCCULT ARTS", English edition.

When all the above criticism of Alice A. Bailey's books and teaching have been presented, it ought to be emphasised, that the books written by Alice A. Bailey still can be used by a number of people to the benefit of their spiritual advancement or liberation. However, the readers and the individuals should as I see it at least be aware of the problematic issues, which I have raised in this article before, they carry their studies too far into an ignorant view upon the Christian teachings and thought-patterns. Clinging too much to the dead-letter when reading books or when taught by a lecturer, will not be helpful when dealing with these books. To consider these books by Alice A. Bailey as the only alternative today, on a physical planet with present day tensions between the West and The Middle East can hardly be said to be a useful model, especially when we consider, that the Alice A. Bailey teachings and Lucis Trust are involved with work at The United Nations. We aught to remember, that at the time when H. P. Blavatsky's lived, there were only few books from the Middle East translated into western European languages. The esoteric teaching of the Sufi's was almost non-existing to westerners.

As a more visionary Middle Eastern and present day approach to the Alice A. Bailey teachings with their Christian tendencies and thought-patterns, one could recommend a Middle Eastern author like Idries Shah. The worst scenario, It can picture is, that the Seeker will arrive at an understanding of the Middle Eastern esoteric background and succeed in pushing the inner Christian-Bailey-Pharisee into a more proper place. Yet, one needs to understand, that despite all my talk about the Middle East I am not unaware of, that there also exists false Muslims and Muslim leaders on various levels who mislead people into ritual tribalistic views of a kind, which almost, if they not really, are on the same level as the false Christian magicians.

Comments are always welcomed. I know, that a number of readers will have difficulties in accepting the above presentation and content of this article. And I guess that goes especially with those, who have something at stake, for instance like their personal pride, honour, prejudice, even power hunger and other issues. But, when the rather uncontrollable almost invisible emotional and Kama-Manas reactions and similar have calmed down, the readers will hopefully view the whole matter in a different light, than they did before they read this article.
