If we were Edwardians we would all be like the folks who worshipped Annie  
and the Bishop!

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 
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 
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 
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? :)
