And Re: From my own experience, I have found that
observations from within are rather clouded in comparison to
observations from without. Having being out of the Order for
just over 6 years, I have had much time to reflect.
When you are inside something, it is often harder to make
observations about the thing, than if you are outside. When
outside you can see more of the whole, rather than the

doing a superb job. It is so easy to criticize. In fact, its
one of the easiest things to do. Those in an OTO leadership
position have got their ownt reasons, that may not be

leadership. Unless you are in a leadership position, its
not always easy to judge. And no one has ever said it is run

the promalgation of Thelema.
This is my opinion.
Thank you for your opinion. I hope that my remarks were not
interpreted as in any way critical of anyone. I merely
wished to report a hopefull period of reconciliation in the
war torn ATL OTO area.
As to current OTO leadership, I have no opinion. As I
previously mentioned my current role is that of a Bystander.
