Can we can get you a larger shovel to dig yourself in with?
Keith: I don't know where all this is really heading, but I think it has to
do with the fact that theos-l was created to encourange free and open thinking
and speech in an unmoderated forum, Olcott has it own agenda to control and
protect ( which is perfectly OK and understandable) their version of the
ANCIENT WISDOM which really belongs to everyone and no one. It is everywhere
like the air we breathe if we can only open the higher vehicle/chackras to
breath of inspiration ( from the word to breathe).
Organizations and organized religions are momuments that do every thing they
can to PREVENT a mystical/spiritual/religious experience. They definitely
want to keep the lid on a "sell" it.
Do you remember the early days of the INTERNET before the web. It was so
exciting. It is becoming more organized and commercial everyday. I think
less and less people use the usenet group because the web has on-line chat and
then there is IRC etc. (am I wrong??)
A lot has been gained, but the pioneering days seeming to be passing before I
very cyber-eyes. (a small tear ;>)
