Thank you once again for sharing some most interesting ideas.
Perhaps we can investigate and dialogue them a little further
so that we may each understand them more fully?
You write, "Whenever one pole of manifestation is activated,
its opposite is also activated."
Is this entirely accurate? Undoubtedly, for there to be hot
there must be cold. But is this cold only in potential
until an experiencer manifests/experiences it?
There are profound as well as practical implications arising
from this idea, which unfold through your further comments.
As you write, "When an organization makes progress toward
manifesting some aspect of the Unity of all Life, the forces of
separation and disintegration become very noisy and boistrous."
This is so often the case, but why and how?
Do the forces of separation and disintegration have to be
Is it a requirement?
If so, who or what requires it?
Or is it within the nature of the process for this to occur?
And if it is, is it not for us to participate in?
And if so, how?
To elaborate, you write, "When the student, for instance, makes
a vow to himself to follow his highest aspirations, his lower self
will be tested to whatever degree he can endure."
This is an oft repeated idea in our theosophical circles, albeit
open to different interpretations.
What is/are your interpretation/s as to the instigation and
process of this testing?
"Who" or what does the testing, and if it is ourselves, which part of
If it is karma, do you think this is an internally directed process
or conducted by an external authority?
Or, as before questioned, is it the nature of the process itself?
And if so, is it not for us in which to participate and perhaps even
I look very forward to your thoughts on these considerations,
particularly with respect to your statement, "Why not then stay
within the Light...."
