I am learning to read your posts with more appreciation for the language
differences. If I simply forgive that which comes across as condescending,
I find your posts laced with excellent observations.

Subject: Theos-World Email - DESIGNERS and their friends...
> Hi all of you,
> I am back from a family weekend.
> A comment and some views:
> I think that people - which are not developed fully, - from time to time -
make what we ordinarily call a mistake or some mistakes.
> Some of them will not admit they make mistakes - and/or are afraid of
losing 'face' so to speak.
> Others - really regret their mistake or mistakes, and 'get face' by doing
that - or very often they at least get respect.
> Some people are from time to time (whether they know it or not) using up
their - valuable spiritual time to quarrel about issues, not concerning
the - real teaching of wisdom, - rather about who is going to lose 'face' -
this time or the next. Let us just call it a view.
> Those who consider - wisdom teaching - to be - merely - intellectual
maneuvers on wisdom or theosophy etc. will be surprised to learn that they
are deeply mistaken - in their view. Intellectual academic research is and
will always be well - below - the research done with real true wisdom.
> And therefore it should NOT be the major part of theosophical teaching.
> If one really do care about - our valuable life, and its possible
meaning, - then one ought to do more reasearch on the words of wisdom -
rather than the words of the intellect, although both are important.
> To me emails on wisdom are kind of DESIGNS. As designs they make the
readers (receivers) of them - react. If the reader is an ernest - student of
the wisdom teaching of all ages or theosophy - then an honest initiated of a
proper level will measure - this reaction, and a new design will come in to
place when - the time and place etc. is right for it.
> The new design will not necessarily be an email - it could be something
> In the question of bad - "designers" or people. They can never really harm
anyone - except themselves, and that is bad enough. Only each individuals
Karma can be hurting. Only justice can happen. God - ParaBrahman is not
allowing unjust events in the universe of life. Only - unclever - ignorance
makes people think, that God is stupid making all these - sufferings occur
on this Planet - at our present hours.
> Let us not be like the pharisees in The New Testament, (the academic
scholars on religion), who thought - 'we are not blind - we can see' (i.e.
'we are not ignorant'). And yet they didn't understand - the teaching of
Jesus on wisdom, - continued to be ignorant - i.e. BLIND. They ignored his
allegorical teachings of wisdom ! (Even - Christ used "the 7 keys" - which
the theosophist Blavatsky mentions in the book The Secret Doctrine).
> To ignore wisdom - doesn't make it fly away and disappear.
> And really: As a theosophist or follower of the teachings of wisdom of all
ages - I can NOT and will NOT agree with those who think, that being a
theosophical personality, or author, or being a academic Ph.d., or another
kind of (WESTERN) academic scholar counts MORE - than NOT having an academic
Ph.d., or being an author, or having a (WESTERN) academic education, or
being just an ordinary person, or the like.
> How do we get beyond - debates on the level of 'emotional thea and talk'.
> As for 'Proof' - the five letter word TRUTH is still around. And one can't
get rid of it.
> 'There is no religion higher than the truth'.
> There are different levels of truth - no doubt there.
> All is maya, but the truth is shown there. This entire universe can't
exists without truth. As a definition ParaBrahman - God is TRUTH.
> I like positive remarks.
> To say there is not 'proof' - is to me to say, there is no 'truth', and to
say there is no 'ParaBrahman' - no 'Neti, Neti' (i.e. no 'not this, not
that'). I think that is (for instance ) - a - buddhist view.
> (Who I am: I have been studying theosophy for more than 20 years now. This
email is the - present result of that. I am living physically in Denmark.)
> These were just some views.
> Feel free to do your best.
