Hi Brigitte and all of you,

A view among many:
God -- you sound negative. No offence, It just came out of my fingertips.
You make me ask the following: 
Do you never have anything positive to say on any of the great sages of alltimes past ? Who is your favorite sage ? Your self ?
I can see you omitted Sai Baba in the below - are you one of his followers then, --- now -- no lying here? 

Sufilight with LOVE... and some Sufis with a crying clone...
