My views are:
You for sure have some points of importance in your email.
There is one issue, which I would like to comment on a bit.
"Western democracies in general may be facing difficult moments, now. Yet
democracy, or the art of perceiving and managing unity and diversity as a
simultaneous process, is still the great lesson we have to learn, both
inside and outside the theosophical movement."
Yes, some western democracies are facing difficulties now.
But materialistic oriented democracies without wisdom and understanding of
the importance of God-ParaBrahman,
will always create trouble and face problems. And country systems being
by a religious priesthood of
a dogmatic kind will always face problems, because of their dead-letter
vanity and strange emphasis on odd
THIS, - the various Theosophical groups and especially their leaders aught
to carefully consider!
They aught to Consider and secure, that they are not themselves belonging
either of these two groups mentioned in the above.
This is a theosophical duty.
Physically wellknown so-called Theosophical or theosophical groups will not
be able to act in a manner, which
will be helpful if they continously uncritically enroll members into their
esoteric sections or any of their groups.
Theosophical groups aught to consider the following stance in our now
present informations society:
A real Theosophical group or esoteric section will neither claim to have
mission to teach everyone, nor will it enrol
everyone into a particular group.
All this talk reminds me of the Chinese movie named HERO.
A beautiful movie on a great legend.
The movie by Zhang is set 2,200 years ago, during the reign of the King of
(Chen Daoming), the emperor who united China and built the Great Wall.
The emperor realises the wisdom behind a sign given to him by the leading
role in the movie
The Sign is called "Everything under the heaven".
The sign has three levels of interpretation.
It sort of relates to Arjuna's struggle on the spiritual path in the famous
script called Bhagavad Gita.
The emperor says just about the following, when he understands the meaning
of the sign:
1.The unity between Sword and man, makes the master capeable of using
as a weapon, even a straw of grass.
2. When the sword is in the heart, then it is not needed in the hand,
and then one is able to strike ones enemy even at a distance of a hundred
3. The highest aim of the master of the sword is to
neither have the sword in the hand or in the heart.
When this happens the master of the sword has create peace with the world.
He hold it sacred not to kill, but aims at creating peace to the world.
The movie is excellent in the sense, that it relates calligraphy with the
- - - Words are like swords. Please remember that. - - -
So when any write an email at this place, or just an email, they aught to
My own self included.
Peace be with you all.
M. Sufilight with peace and love...
