It would seem that any system founded upon free thought and expression  would 
have to be divided because we all disagree with each other.
It would be amazing, and rather unfortunate, if it were not.

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.indoctrination.<WBR>.. to allow Truth and Knowledg

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'!
