Thank you for your suggestion. My question is: why one week? Why
not ... for ever?
The world is burning with relentless waves of deep-seated hatred;
the elderly, women and children are being blown up every day as part
of a 'tactical strategy' conceived to intimidate the enemy? Millions
are displaced in Darfur and women and girls continue to be raped
there in broad daylight; many other millions are starving in several
African countries; western moral relativism continues to treat all
these inconceivably horrific events as 'something to be discussed'
in carpeted halls by highly paid diplomats who 'need' to take their
countries' interest first before any agreement is tentatively
Does theos-talk need to contribute to the overwhelming mass of human
despair by continuing to be a battlefield for self-styled
Why can't theos-talk be a nucleus of Universal Brotherhood without
distinction right here and now? That includes without distinction of
race, creed, sex, cast, colour, opinion, affiliation to any school
of theosophical tradition or any theosophical organisation?
Whom does it serve to continually repeat one hundred year old
scandals and accusations about ANY theosophical leader, author or
speaker? What purpose does it serve?
Can theos-talk be a space of sanity, friendship and mutual learning,
where everyone is deepening their understanding of Divine Wisdom by
listening to each other, dialoguing together, contributing their
very best to make of this list something worthy of the attention of
the Powers of Goodness and Compassion for the benefit, uplifting and
regeneration of human consciousness?
I am ready to contribute to the above and would like to extend to
you, Daniel and all other list members, including those who left
because of a previous atmosphere of hostility, a heartfelt appeal as
a fellow-student of Theosophy.

radical criticisms of any theosophical or neotheosophical leader,
group or organization, and to have a rather candid investigation on
higher levels of consciousness, or on other constructive topics,
while observing how our own minds and hearts work during that time.
