Hello Theos-Talk,
My friends call me Dee, living in Fayetteville, NC. I'm 31 years 
old and I had lost myself somewhere and I have been on a mission to 
discover me for the past year. A few months ago I discovered - or 
finally come to terms - that one of the reasons that I'm having 
trouble with discovering myself is that I have a form of 
depression. But for the past year or so I've been conducting my 
search from a spiritual perspective - and a lot of therapy sessions.
In the past year I purchased several books such as, different 
versions of the Bible, the Septuagint, the Gnostic Bible, books on 
paganism, I Ching, The Idiot's Guide to World Religions, meditation, 
etc. Every time I went into the book store, there was this one 
particular 2 book volume set that, for some reason, I was drawn to 
it. I had no idea what it was or what it was about. Finally, one 
day after several trips to the book store, and having some sort a 
compelling feeling towards the books every time I walked down that 
isle, I purchased the set , The Secret Doctrine. I read the 
introduction and part of the first chapter. That's how I discovered 
that there is such a thing as Theosophy. I had a difficult time 
understanding what H.P.B. was saying, a lot of terms were foriegn to 
me so I went back to the store and bought Isis Unveiled, hoping that 
will clue me in to what every thing is about. 
So here I am, joined a group in hopes of learning more about 
Theosophy and maybe find some folks in my area that might be 
interested in meeting up some time.

Have a Happy New Year,
