Go for it, Chuck.  The principles of S/M, as I see it, are the basic structure of
the universe as it acts in duality.  S/M makes it very clear and easier to
see.  Better than 10 volumes of HPB, as far as I'm concerned.  It's
certainly helped me sort out my relations and see where I was getting
screwed, when I didn't want to be.

That's one reason I wrote that post about the Quest article.  "Think for
yourself."  Yeah, sure.  As long as you think like me, dress like me,
read what I read, act like me and eat those damn veggies like me.

That article wanted to put the issue of UFOs in some kind of  floaty,
intellectual, Jungian cloud that has no reality.  Reality?  "We don't
need no stinkin' reality here, at TSA."

I also think it might have been a whitewash because Applewhite's
female companion was a Theosophist.  Nice publicity there.

Till next time,
