News Letter No. 24

Mdm. Blavatsky says on page 297 of Vol. 1 of The Secret Doctrine: “But TRUTH, however distasteful to the generally blind majorities, has always had her champions, ready to die for her, and it is not the Occultist who will protest its adoption by Science under whatever new name. But, until absolutely forced on the notice and acceptance of Scientists, many an Occult truth will be tabooed, as the phenomena of the Spiritualists and other psychic manifestations were, to be finally appropriated by its ex-traducers without the least acknowledgments or thanks. Nitrogen has added considerably to chemical knowledge, but its discoverer, PARACELSUS, is to this day called a “quack.” How profoundly true are the words of H. T. Buckle, in his admirable History of Civilization (Vol. 1, p. 246), when he says: ‘Owing to circumstances still unknown (Karmic provision, H.P.B.) there appear from time to time great thinkers, who, devoting their lives to a single purpose, are able to anticipate the progress of mankind, and to produce a religion or a philosophy by which important effects are eventually brought about. But if we look into history we shall clearly see that, although the origin of a new opinion may be thus due to a single man, the result which the new opinion produces will depend on the condition of the people among whom it is propagated. If either a religion or a philosophy is too much in advance of a nation it can do no present service but bide its time until the minds of men are ripe for reception… Every science, every creed has its martyrs. According to the ordinary course of affairs, a few generations pass away, and then comes a period when these very truths are looked upon as common-place facts, and a little later there comes another period in which they are declared to be necessary, and even the dullest intellect wonders how they could ever have been denied.’”
