Of course you may dare - upon your own head be it!

Admitting you are as human in your predilictions as "ordinary" folk is
sometimes frowned upon in the rarified atmosphere of theosophical
meetings. Sure, lip service to such fallibility is often uttered, but
methinks it is oten the carrot in front of the donkey.
We donkeys must stick together. Join TI.
The trouble with genuine seership is that things are likely to be seen
that people do not want to be told. "To know, to will, to dare, and to
be silent." Go for silence, it's the safest. Anything else and the
*&%^%!!* will do their best (or worst) to get you.
