Re: Theos-World Message to Carlos from Erica

Dear Seekers of Truth,

I have been subscribing to the talk group for some months now. I have been trying to read through the mails in this talk group. On this platform, there are so many of us with so strong views .

The undercurrent of criticism is very evident. It hurts to see that seekers of wisdom could be so critical of each other or of anyone, HPB, CWL, Judge or the 27 year old meditating under a tree in Nepal.

A request dear brothers, nothing in life is gained by criticising others. Opinion formation about history is important in research methodology, may not be in wisdom building. 

The comments of Erica and its response made me write this brief note.
