          Hello to you all.
The second time I contributed to this discussion group,
I expressed my dissapointment in what I then considered
(14.09.06) to be much needless debating, suggesting that
it was further "driving the wedge of separation between us"
with all this arguing over "true or false accounts of history".
However, I also added;"Perhaps my initial impressions are
misguided" and "Perhaps I will be made to eat these words!"

Well the oven is on and the ingredients of humble pie are
in front of me!

For the past year I have been silently watching the discussions
unfold on theos-talk and not only have I changed my view
about these debates being needless, but have now come to
a place where I consider them to be absolutely necessary.

When I witness people putting their heart and soul into some
of these discussions (usually in an atmosphere of mutual respect)
sometimes revealing very personal areas of their lives - perhaps
to illuminate an important principle; sometimes investing lots of
their valuable time and effort, not to mention knowledge,
experience and often wisdom - the value of these debates,
which surround the 'Truth','Reality' and 'Honesty' contained
within the various Theosophical teachings, seem to me to be
not only of great importance to the members of this group
but to the world of Theosophy at large. Indeed the potential
outcomes of these discussions could and SHOULD have an
effect on the members respective Theosophical organisations,
especially in light of undeniable TRUTHS.

This generation of Theosohical students - the current holders
of the Ageless Wisdom - are responsible for the way in which
Theosophy continues into the next generation. I dare say future
generations will need this wisdom a lot more than we, in our
relatively privileged, though ever darkening times.

On this note I would like to take the opportunity to personally
thank Daniel for his outstanding contribution to the
Theosophical Movement. The work that you do is invaluable.
There are many others but I would like to extend my gratitude
to all the members of this brilliant discussion group for your
on-going contribution, and apologies for my knee-jerk reaction
last year.
This has been a learning curve for me - a lesson in open
mindedness, not to mention a healthy dose of Kshanti!
It seems that if we let go of our expectations, of how we think
things 'should be' - then we can make room for understanding
why things are the way they are.
This to me is very important.
>From this, perhaps more holistic perspective, we are better
equiped to recognise how things could begin to change in a
Truly Theosophical direction. That is, towards assisting in the
alleviation of suffering of ALL BEINGS.

Warm regards to you all,
