Dear All,
I've been watching the postings but held back from responding. Humour is perhaps one of the most important things that humans can develop. A simple story can explain or put things into perspective or under a new light, It can turn peoples' veiws 180 degrees, it can be used to attack or counterfoil, injustices,predjudices pomposity,dogma. and it can make people think. It can , in the right hands, turndeepset attitudes of intollerance, indifferences etc.
for an example and if Chuck will forgive me for using him(but he is someone who understands the use of humour to explain things)
The story is, Chuck the Hearatic Dies and ,strangely goes to Heaven, taken inside,St Peter produces the big book(Karma) reads it "ah ha, MMMhm, " Ok Chuck here is your soul mate introducing to him a fairly plain ordinary looking woman and both are put on a little cloud, Just as Chuck is stepping onto the cloud he looks around to see CWL standing on a cloud further down and stepping on to that cloud is a veluptuous blond. Chuck complainsto St Peter" Wait a minute, I know I've done things in my past livees but I haven't been that bad so how come he 's getting her. To which St Peter replies "Oh,no,no,no, Chuck, you mis-understand that's HER punnishment!!"

Please forgive me Chuck I do hope it is taken in good spirit
cheers Iain

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

Try to read the following e-mail I posted in 2002 here at Theos-talk:

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
what we call - assumtions.

M. Sufilight with peace and love...

Dear Sufilight,

If you make jokes with the names of the Masters,
I might make jokes with the Prophet,
yet I somewaht prefer keeping jokes away
from Masters names and from the Prophet's name.
