Agreed.  However, on both sides.  Max has a good point to make, but the point
to which I am referring is not "keep it to yourself".  Mark, I agree with Max
that the answers you seek CAN be found in the Universal Self, however, in
order to understand that which comes from the U. Self, you must learn to
understand it.  In order to learn, you must ask questions.  Max, I hope that
the former is the point you were trying to make.  This is a discussion list.
And most of what is discussed is centered around helping humanity.  I assume
that Mark is a human.:)  His question seemed appropriate enough to me to be
posted here.  I think perhaps your point was taken more offensively than it
was meant to be.  But, then, I as well could be mistaken.
