Dear Marcheta:

Your experience parallels many that I have seen. And during my
long life of many travels around the world and visiting many
centers where Theosophy has been studied, I have always found a
refreshing and spontaneous atmosphere wherever money was never
mentioned or brought forward as a basis for participation.

Esoteric wisdom and true "occultism" cannot ever be sold, nor can
a true teacher make any charge or ask any recompense for offering
what he has gained in understanding.

Many others may have similar observations to give us to see and
to understand from.

 Best wishes, Dallas
