to translate from mother language and begins to think in English. 
Sometimes, when I translate into Slovenian, I have a feeling, after 
the work is done, that it was somebody else who has written those 
words. Now sometimes this feeling is present also when I write in 
English. So, maybe there is really some help present; but I would 
anyway welcome a person who would help me with editing and improve my 

When Slovenian fellow theosophists were scrutinizing my translations 
they came to conclusion that there were at least two persons who 
worked on them or that it is quite impossible that there were 
accomplished by me. Well, what can one say to such assumptions? 
Really nothing, just go on working.

Warmest regards,
