Re: BAG is interviewed by Eric Wynants about Theosophy
- Hi. This is not so much for Daniel, but for everyone: The interview is
funny, sad, pathetic and poignant. Some of what he says is TRUE, and a lot
is distorted, reactive gibberish, but who even cares? He is IGNORANT, in my
opinion, as are some of the people on here. Maybe you have all attracted
each other (and me). I am glad you put this out here, but don't worry. No
one who is SIGNIFICANT will be attracted to him and his words.
There is no way to sort stuff like this out, and it is not even necessary to
do so. Have a good laugh and let it go. This is a recent piece, as he is
referring to a lot of material that was just posted. Maybe he was frustrated
and angry with ME, or maybe he pretended to be so wounded by me because he
knew he would be leaving this list after doing the interview, anyway, and he
threw in a guilt trip for goodby. When you discovery enquiry and the joy of
Work, none of this will concern you any longer
Bag, if you are reading this, which I know you are, even a Roman Catholic
can do the exercise of impartial self observation. Maybe you should give
this exercise a try. Wry
