Hi Hugh,

Tolerance is a good thing for aspiring theosophists to emulate, even 
among each other. I think it was Madame Blavatsky who said that the 
truth is as multi-faceted as the ripples on a lake shining in the 
moonlight. It's all a matter of point of view. We can only keep 
trying. And welcome, by the way. I hope you are not discouraged by 
this little exchange. We are a bumptious group, but in the main we 
mean well, sort of like any other group you might find.
