If YES, please pass the text of my introduction, and suggest a better title for the letter itself to that which I have given? Thanks, Boudewijn ========== Dear Boudewijn, By all means - share it. rkm ============================================================================ From: "John Bunzl - Simultaneous Policy" <•••@••.•••> URL: http://www.simpol.org To: <•••@••.•••> Subject: Re: cj,rn> recap of rkm's 'philosophy' Date: Thu, 1 Mar 2001 15:58:48 -0000 Like it! ======== Dear John, Thanks! rkm ============================================================================ From: "John H.

How much stock are you holding in case the revolution doesn't pan out? John H. St.John =============== Dear John, I didn't leave it out intentionally. On the other hand, I see corporations as a symptom more than a cause. How many corporate products do you buy every day? What is the relevance of questions like this? Is our sincerity in doubt? cheers, rkm ============================================================================ From: mango <•••@••.•••> To: •••@••.••• Cc: •••@••.••• Subject: Re: cj,rn> recap of rkm's 'philosophy' Date: Thu, 01 Mar 2001 18:18:58 +0000 15:04:00 +0000, you wrote: >For about ten years I was part of a sufi study group led by >Jim Fadiman, an rn subscriber and co-founder of the >Institute for Transpersonal Psychology in Menlo Park, >California. > >The group had a reunion last month, which I was unable to >attend, and here is a letter I sent to them...

I found on my list an article of your or copy of letter to some fellow sufi thinkers and your words resonated with much that has been churning away in my own consciousness and in my ongoing need to stay awake, aware and present to the times we live in. Schronicity abounds; I'm also reading Doris Lessing's autobiography and was astounded at her insight on the historical process. She felt that she did not become truly awake until she began years of study with Sufi master, Indres Shah. And she was very active politically, especially in her years as a communist in Rhodesia, and later in the early post war years of Britain. At any rate, tho I am truly a neophete in all these areas, I welcome your many links and ways to inform myself so that I can be more at choice in my attitudes, beliefs, etc. My own intuition is a reliable guide in this de-conditioning, de-bugging personal project of mine! If you send out regular e-mails, let me subscribe to same. I welcome your input. Sincerely, Norma Pirie ====================== Dear Norma, Thanks for your comments, and you are now subscribed. You'll get two copies of this, being on both lists, but most postings go only to one list or the other. welcome, rkm -- ============================================================================ Richard K Moore Wexford, Ireland Citizens for a Democratic Renaissance email: •••@••.••• URL: http://cyberjournal.org A community will evolve only when the people control their means of communication. - Frantz Fanon "One cannot separate economics, political science, and history.
