Here is a sample of one discussion.  I have unsubscribed due to
the chaotic quality of my life at this time.  Enjoy.

1. Joni Garcia
Hello, I am interested in discussing Thoreau, especially how his concept
of Civil Disobedience reflects his views on nature. Would anyone care to
share their ideas on this?

2.   I would really like to talk to anyone that knows anything about
your karma.  It really seems to work when you ask the Masters to do this.
 Has anyone else had any experience with this?  Let me know...

Subject: more quotable quotes

Hi, whoever is out there,

	I think that quoting a few passages from what I happen to be reading, and
find interesting, might be a good way to get some discussion going on this
mailing list. So here goes some more. A few days ago I received a bonus
book for rejoining the Noetic Science Institute. The book is "Tying Rocks
to Clouds" by Wm. Elliott. It's a series of interviews Elliott did with
well known spirtual leaders. He asked such questions as "What is the
meaning of life?" "What is god?". So far, my favorite interview is the one
with Jean Houston.
 	Here are her nuggets: "What used to be called 'sin' is now called
'unskilled behavior'." Restating good old Buddhist principles in a modern
Western manner.
"Consciousness is always altering. That is the state of consciousness." I
never thought of it in quite that way before. It makes consciousness be
liquid or even gaseous, or even more diaphanous.
 "People said to the Buddha, ' Sir, what are you? Are you a god?" "No,"
Buddha said. "An angel?" "No," "Then what are you?" "I am just awake."
Again restating an old Buddhist principle in terms I can better understand.
	Jean Houston's ancestors are Sam Houston, and Robert E. Lee. That was
rather unexpected ... such illustrious, sedate ancestry for a New Age trail
	Here are 2 quotes I liked from Elliott's interview with Rabbi Harold
Kushner: "God is found through relationship" Hmm, nice.  "The highest ideal
is to become a human being." That too makes me smile &
feel good.   
	Hope these interest you, and spark some comments.

4.  In case you aren't aware:  Our own Quest Books (TPH) first published
"Tying Rocks to Clouds" as a hardback and then sold the paperback rights.
William Elliot was a speaker at our Annual Convention 2 years ago.  He gave
a wonderful presentation of his book and what went into it.  The part many
people enjoyed most was the tape recording he played of the Dalai Lama
