A problem here is that we study theosophy, we have not yet
become to the full expression of that compassion yet.  THis

This is no excuse for some of the e-mails here. I was also
unhappy with JRC's e-mail about Kym. I think he must have
had some emotional breakdown or something. Also I was
thinking it might also be a joke (like Kym's e-mail
recently ) But I have developed a thick skin, also because
it is so easy to misunderstand and I know how easy it is to
react emotionally to people putting things in an
unfortunate way.

We did that, when we all read (and I think enjoyed)
Grigor's e-mails on Dzog chen. Also there were valuable
posts here on buddhism and every once in a while Dalas

discussed: discuss it. If you have questions, ask. That is
the only way of changing the list. And no, I do not think
there is a list that does not have these problems. On the
other hand: there are lodges that do not have these
problems, but on the other hand also do not have the
interesting benefits of this list.

Hope this was of help.
