This is from Nancy:
Thanks for your posting about the Protean Self and the Fundamentalis
Self. This is sure a breath of fresh air. I am good and tired of the
Co-dependent model which articulates <sick> behavior endlessly, but
spends much less time on describing <healthy> behavior.
Helping out as a community mediator has really exposed me to situations
where I had to let go of my own mental constructs about how the world
should be, or how people should act, and just BE with the people who
were angry and stuck. You never know how it will end or where the
conversations will go. I have to keep reminding myself to breathe, but
I am learning to withstand the tension of not knowing, of not being an
authority etc etc. There are few rules to hold on to, and they
constantly change. I agree with what you once mentioned to me, that it
is so odd that HPB who was the ultimate heretic, often gets cast as the
ultimate authority, She who ranted against authorities, is endlessly
quoted to prove a point.
It reminds me of something I read once, that rather than follow the
finger pointing, we suck it for comfort.
Let's take theosophy to the streets!!!!
What is the title of the book that describes the two Selves ?
