Re: A comment on the Consolamentum
- Hey ely, you state.....
"The meaning of "shakti" is simply the "Holy Spirit" and if my use of
the Indian term offended you I apologize."
Offend? Oh my goodness... no. I guess I may some times seem a lot
more harsh than I intend. You need to understand though, it is my
job, and the job of the other founders, to keep things on track. It
has nothing to do with personal offence, it is simply meant to point
out the purpose of the club. Not every one here is able to translate
eastern lingo into our specific context. Thus, we prefer that people
use terms that make sense in the Gnostic venue.
"Any insight that I offer is given in the spirit of fraternity that
our historical Gnostic forefathers held in high esteem."
In a way, that is exactly why we have tried to create a club that
has some historical concern. For one, I don't know any other club
that attempts it, but also it gives us something to chew concerning
how similar or different we really are from these ancient people.
