You may have noticed that whenever a newbee comes on board and hesitantly
posts a msg, some times the msg may be seen by some subscribers as not to
their liking, there is always encouraging responses from others. It is this
kind of attitude and approach that is very healthy for the maillist. After
all the number of theosophists in the world are miniscule and we need
everyone we can find and can't afford to lose even a single one.
When I see the kind of problems several people face -- many of them dead
serious with no easy solution in sight -- there is always hope in that
things could be worse. All theosophists are optimists and tha't is what
keeps all of us going.
