Our debating circle as you characterize it is something else, I
agree, but not divisive, only cooperative.
It takes many facets carefully crafted to make a good diamond.
The interplay between us all educates us, I know compared to 6
months ago, I have learned a lot, and all from "you-all."
As to HPB - who I revere, I find her so clear when real problems
arise. Sometimes our problems are of language and not of
We try to get each others' ideas clear, and then fit them into
the mosaic we have already been patterning -- lovely glass
windows in our minds!
Reminds me of a lovely poem of Walt Whitman :
That we all labor together transmitting the same charge and
We few equals indifferent of lands, indifferent of times,
We, enclosers of all continents, all castes, allowers of all
Compassionaters, perceivers, rapport of men,
We walk silent among disputes and assertions, but reject not the
disputes nor anything that is asserted,
We hear the bawling and din, we are reached at by divisions,
jealousies, recriminations on every side,
They close peremptorily upon us to surround us, my comrade,
Yet we walk upheld, free, the whole world over, journeying up and
till we make our ineffaceable mark upon time and the diverse
Till we saturate time and eras, that the men and women of races,
ages to come, may prove brethren and lovers as we are.
-- Walt Whitman
I think there is a lot for us as students of Theosophy to think
about in this poem .
