Re: Theos-World Mahatmic involvement?

You know what Nigel, teachers may come in all shapes and forms and may not even know that they are teachers.  Gates invention has to be one of the most significant in the 21st century.  Was it only 40 years ago we were still using telegrams and posting letters.

Cass, thank you for your response and yes it was 
in effect, although I'm sure you know I am not 
suggesting Bill Gates to be a master or the new 
Madame Blavatsky!!!

>From Wikipedia comes the following:

"1975?1985: Founding:

Following the launch of the Altair 8800, Bill Gates 
called the creators of the new microcomputer, Micro 
Instrumentation and Telemetry Systems (MITS), 
offering to demonstrate an implementation of the 
BASIC programming language for the system. After 
the demonstration, MITS agreed to distribute Altair 
Gates left Harvard University, moved to Albuquerque, 
New Mexico where MITS was located, and founded 
Microsoft there.
The MITS Altair 8800 was a microcomputer design from 
1975, based on the Intel 8080 CPU and sold as a 
mail-order kit through advertisements in Popular 
Electronics, Radio-Electronics and other hobbyist 
magazines. The designers intended to sell only a few 
hundred to hobbyists, and were surprised when they 
sold thousands in the first month. Today the Altair 
is widely recognized as the spark that led to the 
personal computer revolution of the next few years."

It seems the masters work on different levels or states 
and with different vehicles or forms of consciousness 
as evidenced in their correspondence with Mr Sinnett 
and Mr Hume.

The 1970's saw the beginnings of personal computers 
leading to individual access to the internet; the 
release of the Tibetan Kangyur and Tangyur teachings 
on which the Secret Doctrine and Voice of the Silence 
are based; and the Dalai Lama first visited the West 
in Europe. 

A few months earlier we walked on the moon, 
thereby massively expanding humanity's consciousness 
as to our innate potential.

Each of these are examples to me of potential Mahatmic 
involvement at some level or other.

We often don't need look too far for inspiration and 
expansion of awareness. 

And perhaps waiting for the next Messiah or teacher 
is missing the opportunities and awakenings of the 
present moment, where all is.

Kind regards
