I imagine that alot of people on this list feel the same but I am sure that
there is a lot that has aready been read even written on in the past and
could be very helpful to what we are doing here. Pressure is not a good
thing but focus might help help us a bit.
I was thinking that the book article responses don't have to be directly
theosophical but that the interaction around them could be. For instance I
was reading Jerry S material on manvantaric evolution and saw much in
common with that and the work I completed only yesterday on Emerson and
Circles. So submiting our interests for theosophical input might be a grand
idea way to learn with out having to be an adept theosopher for some.
I am a terrible organizer when it comes to details but could I suggest that
maybe we could have one of these responses a week starting on Monday where
one of us offers up what they have written (for sacrifice :) and then we
allow for feedback until the next Monday.
Just in order for us to get started maybe Jerry E. would like to offer a
topic (for next Monday or sooner), like I said it could be something
already done or just a quick informal comment, then we could respond. I
imagine it would be best if the topic we wrote on was something that we
wanted a theosophical sort on from others in the group. I am not an
academic and would really perfer it to be very informal sort of stuff. Any
other comments? of suggestions?
Hope it flies.
