My receptive frame of mind eventually gave way as the author seemed to become ever more dogmatic and superior, stressing that it was forbidden to divulge certain mysteries, that teaching should only be imparted by 'Adepts' due to the dangerous nature of this plane, and that all he was describing was naturally (as in 'nature') scientific rather than supernatural, the information gathered by explorations of members of the Theosophical Society and verified by comparison between them.
It would have been more interesting and effective had he described these journeys from personal experience more than the once (or possibly twice) secondhand that he did in the book.
His insistence on purity of morals for the initiate - of body, mind including every thought)- sounded in retrospect horribly hollow when I read his biography after turning the final page.
Difficult as she can be, I think 'll stay with Helena Blavatsky to read about Theosophy for the time being.
An extremely interesting account of what the next plain is supposed to look like and contain. However, it would be nice to actually be able to believe the nice things about it and even the nasty, but I am very sceptical about all these apparently true details as I cannot really think that ANYONE actually does know. Much of this could be wishful thinking (or otherwise, hoping not!) and I would dearly like to think that Leadbeater did actually KNOW.
Who am I to say that he is wrong, actually? Anyway, he will have found out by now!, In spite of my doubting comments, which is why I only gave 4*, I found this a very intriguing read and well written. Worth a look from anyone, I think
