Maybe, just maybe, I am considered by the avid 'Theos-Member' to be sort of
a simplified outsider of sorts? If so? That's ok too. As I find myself
profoundly inside of 'Life' (as Being), where there exists no 'outside'.
Reflecting on some of the eMails that I have been, for some reason,
attracted to opening (instead of all) I seem to have acquired an opinion
(just an opinion) that 'Theos' is greatly divided amongst the groups and
nations. Flexibility, for me, leads to espansivity; thus, I have no problem
with the later. However, I would like to grab the opportunity your eMail
offers to ask a few questions. If I may:
- Why is 'Theos', which seemingly is founded upon free thought and
expression, so divided?
- What, other than internal affairs, does 'Theos' do for 'Humanity'
and/or 'Spirituality' (as popular in term) at their ground levels; I mean
outside of research, study, internal group expressionism, and the like?
- Does 'Theos' confront 'Apparition' as being a considered interest or
relative event to the 'Theos' thought processes?
Thank you for receiving, and considering, my 'thoughts' and questions.
Have a Great Day in Australia! I was there in '68 as a vacationing (strange
term for the occasion) US Marine who rated a few days out of an unpopular
war. *Personally, I find all wars and conflicts (including in homes amongst
family members and/or friends) unpopular... and I know them to be
unnecessary: If 'man' **truly had the Knowledge of Life and his True Natures
of Being. Sad isn't it that no one (amongst the religious sects ... or call
them as you like) is effective in breaking down their prefabricated
indoctrination... to allow Truth and Knowledge to prevail...*

If you have not yet found that something, which at times, you know is
missing within you and your life... it is only because 'No One' is telling
you the truth about 'You'!
