Re: M K Ramadoss & Dallas Remembered

Dear MKR... I am sorry, but not surprised, *sigh*, to hear that
there was not much feedback on Dallas' passing, especially in light
of his vast contribution to Theos-Talk...
I am a 'reader' of Theos-Talk... I think I have actually
participated in a discussion only once, and that had to do with the
astrological doings of the Theosophical Society and the date/dates
of actual incorporation so as to plot a proper chart...
Be that as it may, what brought me to Theos-Talk to begin with was
the opportunity to become more familiar with Theosophy... Alas, what
I found at Theos-Talk is so much egomania that I have not 'wanted'
to participate, and have been only reading the posts for almost two
years now... and of those, Dallas' posts were the only ones that
made it to my inbox... All others were, and still are, automatically
delegated to my junk box where I can peruse them at leisure...
For me, Dallas was the best of the bunch... He was a gentle soul who
responded to questions from a 'soul' level, not the level
of 'personality' as I see most here do... He answered questions and
inquiries with actual major citings of Theosophical works, not his
own interpretations and ego projections... He came across to me as a
gentle man who wasn't interested in 'convincing' anyone, but to
rather 'expose' others to the truths and possibilities of Theosophy
so they could come to it on their own... He seemed always to let
Theosophy speak for itself... and I appreciated that approach
everso... It was Dallas' 'knowledge' and 'utter familiarity' of
Theosophy's works and workings that caused me to place my trust in
his sharings... and his 'manner' of sharing that made me recognize
him as a person of integrity.
Thank you for sharing your remembrance of Dallas with me... I did
not know anything 'personal' about Dallas at all, but with your
sharing, have come to realize even more just how much he wished to
serve us, his fellow brothers and sisters, along our way by
overcoming any trepidation of modern technology... I will always
remember Dallas with great affection.

I agree with your sentiments. There were not many feedback on his
passing and he truly tried to share his understanding of theosophy
and the historical info regarding the theosophical movement.
>From my perspective, one of the fascinating aspects of Dallas was,
in spite of his age he was quick to understand the power of Internet
and took advantage of it and vigorously participated in the e-mail
forums. Generally, older individuals are slow to adopt the latest
technology, and theosophical folks are not an exception to this.

Sometime ago he passed away. That is why you have not heard from him.

I've been out of the internet loop for awhile, and am wondering where
Dallas is... I don't see him posting here anymore.
Thanks to any who answer.
