One saving grace is that we are not Edwardians - we would have all been getting around in frilly knickers

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? :)
