Re: Tantra & Theosophy Virtual Lodge
       Well, Bill, I actually have philosophically 
checked the area out, that's why I knew 
about Reich, partly.  I even wrote a paper 
on the area 20-25 years ago - "Conservation 
Therapy" - which might still be on the 
intenet somewhere.  'Gave Lectures on it 
too (in my own little narrow-minded cultish way.)
    As to what HPB and her teachers taught 
(and still teach) - they promote a "clean" 
and conservative life - no doubt about it 
whatsoever.  K.H. would not even read Besant 
and Bradlaugh's book on birth control, it 
having and "unclean air," or some such 
statement.  But we all have millions of 
years of karma behind us, so it is a big 
issue for nearly everyone, and to condemn 
peoples problems and solutions isn't too 
wise generally.
    I haven't and won't check the lecture 
out, as to my satisfaction I've already 
untied that gordian knot for this lifetime, 
to my own satisfaction at least, and 
haven't got many uncertainties. (maybe 
I should "knock on wood.") One thing I'll 
say is that there is nothing better than
getting free of the concern all together.
      You ever notice what normally voluble
people are completely silent on issues such
as this?
