Hi SalJim and all of you,

Allright SalJim. I agree a lot.
Let us become a "Moderator" ! (Or maybe more interesting an avatar, a christ, a KIDHR etc)! Right ?

Here are some allegories - (an issue, which HPB said was important):

1.The best player of the game is the watcher - ask that one. (a proverb from sufi-land.)

2. God crushed to earth - shall rise again. (from a philosopher).

3. Faith Moves Mountains 
The Hodja was boasting about the power of his faith. 

"If your faith is so strong, then pray for that mountain to come to you," said a skeptic, pointing to a mountain in the distance. 

The Hodja prayed fervently, but the mountain did not move. He prayed more, but the mountain remained unmoved. 

Finally the Hodja got up from his knees and began walking toward the mountain. "I am a humble man," he said, "and the faith of Islam is a practical one. If the mountain will not come to the Hodja, then the Hodja will go to the mountain."

with fun - and the everlasting rugrats with x-filebags...
