My interpretation of this patronising posting.
Marie (punch) admit (punch) you (punch) are (punch) wrong (punch). Admit
(punch) I (punch) am (punch) right (punch) about (punch) you(punch).
Cass, I have been dealt a mortal blow, but I remember now, I started it!!!
Only fair thing to do is to lay down and shut up, like a woman should.

Thanks for your emotional message below.
Perhaps my frankness raises some of your semi-conscious frustrations.
Perhaps you do struggle to repress them in order to be "spiritual", and
upon seeing someone who is open and frank about the difficulties of the
movement, your efforts are defeated -- and you go for a personal "unkindness"
which you thought was not your style.
But your repressed feelings of anger are welcome by me, as I can see the
nucleus of sincerity and kindness in your heart, beneath your "sour" words.
I am not a "possessor" of the truth, and I believe no one can be such a
thing, not even Disciples, not even Adepts. Evolved beings can only "share" or
"partake" Truth. Be part of it, according to the degree of their own
As to me, I am but a seeker after it; and all my conclusions are preliminary
and subject to examination and change.
I suggest you read my message "To Pedro Oliveira", sent a few minutes ago.
It might clarify a few things.
It was not my intention to hurt your feelings. It was, and is, my intention
but to share with my friends in Theos-talk my view of the movement, its
difficulties, its lessons-to-be-It was not my intention to hurt your f
Best regards, Carlos.
