Dear Cass

Points well made.

In addition have we thought much about the dawning 
of the "information age" with computers and the 

Was this part of their "effort?"

On the jnana path, information leads to knowledge; 
and knowledge to awakening.

And what would be the need for a messiah figure with 
all this information extant, other than to relieve the 
burdensome task of thinking and doing the work for 

Kind regards

reiki, tai-chi,healers, all practices contribute to an overall 
awareness that we are not just the body!

has taken place. Some one or more persons have appeared in the world

teaching has been given out. If you care to do so, you can trace

welcome the new torch-bearer of Truth. He will find the minds of men 
prepared for his message, a language ready for him in which to clothe 
the new truths he brings, an organization awaiting his arrival, which 
will remove the merely mechanical, material obstacles and

opportunity is given, could accomplish. Measure it by comparison with 
what the Theosophical Society actually has achieved in the last

hosts of hindrances which would not hamper the new leader. Consider 
all this, and then tell me whether I am too sanguine when I say that
