However superhuman the efforts of the early Christian fathers to obliterate the Secret Doctrine from the very memory of man, they all failed. Truth can never be killed ; hence the failure to sweep away entirely from the face of the earth every vestige of that ancient Wisdom, and to shackle and gag every witness who testified to it.
Letter to the editor
Thank you so much for this important work for all theosophist
Carlos C. A. via Mail
Thank you. Excellent. Shared in various places.
Eric via Mail
Just got you new "Theosophy World News" from FB site, nice work! What immediately stood out was the personal pronoun "I" just published... I (we) hope you get some help in future!
Anyway, I just retired from my mundane profession and will be pursuing my Kundalini Laser hypothesis as rudimentarily outlined here. I just applied to membership at ITC and may go to this Summer's convention in the US (if we still exist and idiot president hasn't had a global tantrum). I chose "Idea for Project" because it easily translates... and I would like to follow up on my research by working with a hyperbaric chamber; that was what the Great Pyramid was was made for!
Thanks and Good Luck!
