      Hallo all of you,
      Got mit uns,
      Salam Aleikum,

      Just to let you know.
      At present - My problem is the below - coming from Alice A. Bailey (Esoteric
      Psychology I, p.167). The word "NOT" was emphasized by me.

      The first quote below (Problems of Humanity p. 162) is sort of sweet.
      But the last quote below (Esoteric Psychology I, p.167), I just don't get.
      My head starts spinning >:-)

      With such a remark, as made by Bailey in the below, and supported by some
      followers, one clearly will be creating, OR, indeed ARE creating problems
      Internationally !
      With the present attitude among the Bailey-followers towards the Middle
      problems are created, for sure.
      If the attitudes of the Bailey-followers are claimed to be proper and right
      towards the Middle East, - then, I, a former Bailey-member just have to say,
      that their Public Relations - stinks.
      (Just a view: And this book: "A LEARNING EXPERIENCE" - by Mary Bailey, by
      the way states, that the Bailey-followers ought not to turn the Bailey-books
      in to a Bible-collection. --- And yet I have to say, I have seen a great
      number of the Bailey-followers to exactly that. And if it is not the
      Bailey-followers intention to do this, the Lucis Trust, certainly - badly
      needs changing, when we talk PR - i.e. Public Relations).
      Well, these are just views from a former Bailey-member.

      And these issues are especially important, because - some- Bailey-groups
      today have influences reaching deeply (and at high levels) into the United
      Nations politics - and the Meditation Room at the United Nations Head
      Quarters, which for some stranges reason - has not been placed somewhere in
      the Middle East...!
      Let us remember, and not forget, that we live in an information-society.

      Any comments from pro-Bailey's on that one ?

      Problems of Humanity p. 162

      "The establishing of a measure of uniformity of procedure will not prove so
      difficult once a measure of unity on the spiritual essentials has been
      achieved. This carefully determined uniformity will aid men everywhere
      to strengthen each other's work and enhance powerfully the stream of thought
      energy which can be directed towards those spiritual Lives, working under
      the Christ, Who stand expectantly waiting to come to the aid of humanity.
      At present the Christian religion has its great Festivals; the Buddhist
      keeps his particular set of spiritual events, and the Hindu has still
      another list of holy days, as has also the Mohammedan. Is it not possible
      that in the world of the future, men everywhere and of all faiths will
      keep the same holy days and unite in honor of the same Festivals? This
      will bring about a pooling of spiritual resources and a united spiritual
      effort, plus a simultaneous spiritual invocation. The potency of this is
      surely apparent."

      Esoteric Psychology I, p.167

      "Every great religion which arises is under the influence of one or other of
      the rays, but it does not necessarily follow that each successive ray
      should have a great far-reaching religion as its outcome. We have heard
      that Brahmanism is the last great religion which arose under first ray
      influence; we do not know what may have been the religion which was the
      outcome of the last second ray period; but the Chaldean, the Egyptian
      and the Zoroastrian religions may be taken as representing the third,
      the fourth, and the fifth rays respectively. Christianity and probably
      Buddhism were the result of sixth ray influence. Mohammedanism, which
      numbers so large a following, is also under sixth ray influence, but it
      is NOT a great root religion, being a hybrid offshoot of Christianity
      with the tinge of Judaism."

      I will now return and listen to the speech "I've been to the Mountain Top"
      by Martin Luther King Jr.

      See you around or round...>:-)
