It is not a case of what *my* alternatives are, but a case of what *overall*
alternatives there are.  I cannot condone using the products of a society
without being part of the production of those products.  Everytime you log
your computer on and download your mail, you are using products produced by
electricity generation industry, the telecommunications industry and the
manufacturing industry, and some poor fool has to provide them for you.

My question is how do those of us on the western path of involvement in this
material world (I'm sure someone can tell us what ray that is) manage to
both live a spiritual life and stay in this mess while we work to improve
it.  It seems we have to make compromises if we wish to stay in the system
enough to be able to act on it to be part of changing it.

But I'm open to ideas.  My current committment is to ecological issues and I
wonder if one of these lists could not be used for a debate such as
eco-theosophy or eco-spirit to combine spiritual and ecological discussion?

By their fruits etc.  That is why I have opted to stay in rather than get
out, but it's tough going.

Tut tut where is your English Australian dictionary.  Don't you get
