Hi Bill and all of you,

Thanks a lot Bill. I had forgotten that.

But did Paul K. Johnson himself not - contact me - ('attacked') me in the absolutely same manner - in his previous email - i.e. the one I answered ?? -  
I think so. Now I know Paul a little, so why did he make the following to me in the below email - at the PS. on Idries Shah??

As I am the only one who has been forwarding Idries Shah in earliere emailshere on theos-talk - suggesting others to read him --- I therefore think that he sort of attacks me and my views. -- I can see, that I possibly made a great mistake here. That is sadening. What a horrible email - I made - I am so sorry !
And Paul could apparently not take my remarks with a laugh.
I took his with a laugh - trying to make a point - by 'exposing' him.

If anyone gets in contact with Paul - then please let him know, that I regret my email - the intention was right, but obviously my head was not.

Anyone feel free to comment...

Sufilight with regrets....and a head that needs repair...

Maybe someone more enlightened than I has yet to reply. Is this any 
more enlightening?:

you ask:

predicted , that someone would write some books in the 20th century 
to enhance and so to speak expand her writings. The Bailey groups 
think that that 'someone' was and is Alice A. Bailey.
> Anyway who wrote those books which Blavatsky made a prediction 
about ?? Paul, Daniel, Brigitte, Dallas, Chuck, Jerry and all of 

If the question is who was HPB talking about, the answer has to be I 
don't know. But if the question is whose writings might qualify, the 
ones I find most valuable as extensions to the Blavatskian corpus are 
Gurdjieff, Ouspensky, Cayce, David-Neel, Krishnamurti, and Purucker.  
(Several of them would be insulted to have their works called that, 
plus they're dead so I'm a terrible sinner to say anything about them 
they wouldn't like, but so be it.) It would be interesting to know 
others' preferences among the various literary successors.


PS-- Not familiar with the first Sufi author you cite. As for Shah, 
I find his books enjoyable and was quite taken with them in the 80s.  
His pseudonymous People of the Secret was an early influence on my 
search for the Masters. But he turns out to be a self-mythologizer 
along the lines of Castaneda, and was well exposed by James Moore in 
an article some years back. Lots of b.s. in Shah along with good 
information and teaching stories, IMO. His daughter Saira's 
documentary trips to Afghanistan have been quite fascinating this
