Re: Theos-World Jokes and Jokes

Talking about jokes and jokes it is interesting to remind you Sufilight that sometime ago a joke I posted a joke in the group and you did not liked it, and expressed your view. Does that means: 
   
  " ix) Inability to laugh at things which appear funny to people outside the "path"?
   
  Many theosophists connected or not to Adyar have a feeling of reverence to the Mahatmas, consequently many may not enjoy jokes about them. 
   
  This for some must be funny, for other ridiculous, for others fundamentalism, I would say this is just a natural human reaction towards something they consider sacred. Sometimes it is nice to have a bit of modesty, and say all right I am sorry I did not mean to offend!

  Hallo Carlos,

My views:

We Seeker and Guardians of Knowledge do not always agree with what others 
say.

Try to read the following e-mail I posted in 2002 here at Theos-talk:
http://www.theosophy.com/theos-talk/200206/tt00024.html

A minor exerpt - here item 9 - tells us a bit about what a spurious 
theosophical school
looks like.
It says the following:
"ix) Inability to laugh at things which appear funny to people outside
the "path";"

Another is item twelve:
"xii) "Teachers" who are themselves ignorant."

Else you will have to tell me more about what you have to offer before I 
will agree
with you on your view.
It is always the motive with the actions, which are important, and not so 
much,
what we call - assumtions.


from
M. Sufilight with peace and love...
