I have enjoyed our conversations.
Sometimes you act like an irritant (I guess, I do too) but I try
to think of those who also read our exchanges. How can we best
help them, even if we are having fun poking fun at some things,
"pulling chains" etc... How do they get to know if we are
serious or not? I, personally, would not leave any one in
I enjoy theosophy so much as a base for operations, I'd like all
to be able to share in it equally. There's a lot to learn, a lot
to un-wrangle, and a lot which we do not grasp yet.

Enlighten - to lighten up? Geddit?

See now we're getting somewhere...

My interpretation is that - and to give an anaology here - we as
individual 'ego' that seems to instruct and make decisions for
that seems tobe a body differnetiated from other bodies on the
plane - are in fact a HOST - of smaller bodies whose will has
to that of the 'ego' and that also in this way that each of us
indivudually is like unto that host and that a greater willin
controls us all - what passes for indivualism is a
that lower plane of will. Does that even make close to sense?
So I'm the boss of my blodd cells and dna etc - then say to our
SOL - OM - ON - RA etc the planets are like his dna -his light is
an akasic blood - the planets then are a higer rank than us etc -
as man are the experiencing conscious of the universe that is -
man exist for the purpose of the universe in existing - that's
say that a species of being on a planet in a system lioght years
is not also that same expression.. Speed of light is a certain
for a reason - there';s a geometric proof somewhere - if I can
it... Gee I'm getting way from the point here..

Dal - at this point let me say this. I've been on this list for

| There is a duality in all things, one is constructive (if you

Shiva-Shakti-Vishnu - you left one out - sustainer, creator,
Nothing leads to annihilation of alllife and effort - you are
human attributes to these primeval forces. The universe is

Like is an a attchment a desire - give it up - is that Hinayana?

I prefer Stephen Donaldsons Thomas Covenant Trilogy (Donaldson

Have you ever read any Phillip K Dick?
