Re: Theos-World Why the CWL pedophilia issue keeps being raised

Hi Paul, the only burden that I perceive the questioner of CWL's sex life has is to prove the allegations that are continually being made. Is there a possibility that CWL was a child molester? Yes. Is there a possibility that he was innocently teaching what he had learned in his school years, yes.
Surely? there has been an unlawful theosophist, Paul, whether in sex matters or in pecuniary matters. But they and their sins are allowed to die with them. Let us keep an open mind. That is what seekers do.
I do agree with you that by keeping the subject tamped down for as long as it was, that hurt the TS. Could it also be hurting the TS by bringing up old dead horses and beating them to death again.

As phrased, your question seems to place the burden on the person who
discusses the problem rather than on the organization that created
and sustains it through dishonesty. Upon reading it, I thought that
google might help me explain it in terms that do not depend on
explaining the person who brings up the CWL pedophilia issue, but
rather on the organization that does not want it raised. Here's what
I found first:
Aversion is a form of bondage. We are tied to what we hate or fear.
That is why, in our lives, the same problem, the same danger or
difficulty, will present itself over and over again in various
prospects, as long as we continue to resist or run away from it
instead of examining it and solving it.
