Robert, when I wrote: "where 'self centered ambition' is recognized to be fully absent", I really meant it, in a thorough sense.
Let me elaborate a little... meaning that, 'once one, lets say me, has ascertained, using whatever means I freely will, be it thought, inner vision, inner full body experience, angelic or disincarnate resource spirit beings etc etc; that a given anthroposophist expressing him/her self within discussion is reflecting an earnest attempt to widen their spiritual knowledge/experience through the act of socialization, AND thus NOT intentionaly pursuing a self centered, one man/woman mission, THEN there exists a possibility for more positive stuff to thrive within the exchange, more than that of mere ideas.
However, in retrosopect, I understand that it's hard to draw a line here, seeing as people are known to unconsciously pursue selfish interests. But all the same, if such an individual where expressing themselve in a truly genuine fashion, even if a condition of 'fault' were present, good things would still transcend from the sharing in 'conversation'. The 'fault element' would be shuffled a little by underlying soul forces....
OK, can you see that?
Also, in this exchange, I've raised the topic of discussion just a little bit to a more superficial plane than it was in the original post - though certainly not to the extreme that you did.
Do you recognize this?
