Dear friends,

There is a
blog entitled  Theosophy Forward -
Theosophy Moving in the 21st Century*, with  commentaries of some
General Secretaries about the International by-laws.  Mrs. Susan Kaschula** 
between some others issues
wrote the following:  "The International
President should serve a fixed term with limitations on  successive terms.
Persons over the age of 80 years should be ineligible for  nomination." ***

It is
necessary to be careful with our words. Words  can hurt and cause unnecessary 
We have many theosophists who are  active and above this age. This would be 
discriminatory and unfair.  Furthermore
it's well known that age brings experience, maturity  consequently as a 
result wiser decisions many times are taken  by those who are older than us. 
They deserve our respect, consideration  and not discrimination due to their

I just hope others in the  future will not suggest the International
President should weight a certain  amount of pounds and have no wrinkles;
otherwise we will end up organizing  a theosophical spa and contacting the
clinic of Dr. Ivo  Pitanguy.

Hi, Katinka

I thought you  set up the blog since it is from Netherlands. when you say

your general  council, are you saying it is Dutch General Council?
