The truth can never go to far.  We are not victorians any more.
Get rid of those silly ideals.  Deal with reality.

Dear Alex

I am not the moderator on this list.
But, I agree,  that this joke from Chuck went too far. Do you not agree on 
that  Chuck?

Yet, it is also true, to some of us, that a number of Chuck's  e-mails are in 
fact quite theosophical in content. If you can - not - find any  of his 
e-mails to be theosophical in content, please let me know.

The  fact that is that you tell me and others, that you grow impatient, 
because you  completely disagree with all Chuck writes in his e-mails - and you 
therefore  need to delete them.

I will tell you, that If I had to delete all those  e-mails I thought to be - 
no good, I would problably be very busy. :-)  Therefore try to read the story 
THE REMEDY in the below. 

May I ask:  Why do you not talk with Chuck about his behaviour instead. That 
is a more  theosophical and altruistic idea. Do you not agree?

Here are two Sufi  stories for you to consider....Her
I do hope, that you will calm down  a bit after reading it.

Some  say that Nasrudin lived in the time of the great conqueror Tamerlane, 
and was  one of his advisers.

One day, so goes the tale, Timur the Lame called  the Mulla and said:
'Nasrudin, the Empire is full of slanderers. How can we  stop their evil 
'You can never stop crime unless you punish all the  criminals,' said 
'You mean the slanderers?'
'And their  accomplices - those who listen to them,' the Mulla reminded him

- - - -  - - -

Mulla Nasrudin had an insatiable craving  for knowledge, but did not seem to 
know what knowledge was. As a result he  asked a local wise man the stupidest 
questions, always based upon random  assumptions
One day the Mull a noticed that his donkey was Inissing. He ran  to the wise 
man 5 house.
'Well, Mulla, what is it this time?'
'My donkey  is gone! Where can I find it?'
The wise man was quite fed up with the  Mulla. 'Nasrudin,' he said, 'the 
donkey has run off, turned into a man and  been ap-pointed the magistrate in the 
next town.'
Thanking the wise man for  his information, the Mulla trudged to the court. 
There sat the magistrate, and  Nasrudin shook his fist at him:
'Come home at once, you foolish  animal!'
The magistrate was furious. 'Who are you and how dare you talk to  me like 
that? I'll have you sent to the cells!'
'I'm the well-known Mulla  Nasrudin, and I have it on the best authority that 
you are my  donkey.'
'That's ridiculous. Nobody in his right senses would credit such a  thing!'
Nasrudin drew himself up to his full height. 'Say what you like he  said, 'I 
prefer to believe the statement of a wise man rather than that of a  donkey.'
Wisdom, according to the Sufis, can only be acquired when one is  ready for 
it: though people insist on seeking enlightenment as and when they  want it. 
The Sufi's task, however, includes trying to impart knowledge in the  right way, 
at the right time, to the people who are able to receive  it:

Is this funny  for everyone here? 
I'm not sure why the moderator is passively ok with  this and even 
allows you to showoff your website. Is he still alive? I  don't know 
about others but I'm starting to get tired of deleting your  messages 
from my inbox.
This crap is not Theosophy, this is just bored  goofing around that 
spoils things for others, and makes the new comer puke  on the whole 
group and leave. 
The Unity of Mind is lacking in here  already, I don't think we need 
to see this nonsense anymore.

Chuck,  why don't you try to be like Milarepa and turn things around, 
become the  first Enlightened man in modern times to abandon the path 
of sorcery and  black magic? 
Think about it Chuck, you will increase the membership,  peoples 
participation and get all our votes if you choose to run and  
promulgate the DOCTRINE of the Buddhas! 
What do you think?  :)
