As a (Dutch) newcomer to this group may I throw in some quite unimportant
First of all I wish to compliment this group for its quite serious tone of
conversation - a relief from the normal diatribe and drivel in other groups.
A pity one has to wade through endless repetitions of former contributions.
Having said that I want to add that I should regret it very much if good
wholesome humour like the "EATING BABIES" joke would not have its rightful
place in Chucks"s FAQ. If only to get rid of newcomers who might consider
Theosophists "a bad or foolish nation". After all, unless one becomes like a
fool one cannot enter the Kingdom of Heaven!
I recognize the special energy felt by Shaman. In fact in my former days
when I was still a Theosophist I had experiences of something like that
invading me like a light, making me feel light and pure inside. I realised
that I could keep in touch with it by submission free from mental interference.
As to BEE BOWN's channeling group. I have been fascinated by the phenomenon
of presences manifesting to individuals and especially during sittings. I
have written on it on my page: "The presence phenomenon"
(http://www.xs4all.nl/~wichm/presence.html) A.o. about a fictitious entity
"Philip" presenting itself to a Canadian experimental group.
BOOKLISTS. I do not think that Marion Meade's revealing biography: "Madame
Blavatsky. Woman behind the Myth." did justice to her. Yet, it raises
important issues. It having been published in 1980 could be termed quite a
modern approach and should not have been left out of a representative
booklist. Anyone really interested would have no difficulty in tracing it,
if it were only in the public library.
