I guess I am stubborn and I seem to have this inner urge to KNOW. Know what
has been the problem and I have been looking for 20 odd years in all sorts
of places. I think I have settled in theo because of the ideas and the
books. At this moment in time I am glad to have found de Purucker as I feel
I can understand better what it is about. Why I have this urge to know
EVERYTHING I don't know and sometimes wish it would just go away but many
times it is exciting to suddenly find some answers. We get our kicks in
strange way! I am not an intellectual so the going gets rough sometimes but
I keep plugging on. Maybe I can help others to understand one day. This
elemental essence thing has got me into areas that never grabbed me before.
Kind regards Bee
