    In the post to Liberated, I see you're harboring negative feelings about the TM School. I was the TMS servant before the elder system went into effect, so I'll let you off the hook this time, but I'm going to mark you weak (W) on Gestures. This will give you something to work on for your next assignment.

    Ewwwww, You are deep..... having just floated away from the
    org.. I feel kinda nervous, questioning the Bible.

    Well, it gets a little deep around here, and it always pays having a good pair of boots handy. There are a few folks on the list I consider deep thinkers, but trust me on this--I'm not one of them. I've been out of the Tower longer than you with time to process and play with questions and concepts. That's not deep Casper, it's old age!

    what do you believe in..????

    Oh a little of this and that, but nothing too important. I run with some Unitarians at present, but that's not a group for everyone. You'll usually find a mix of Atheists, Agnostics, a few Buddhist, some non-fundi Christians, and Pagans to round out the group. Religion is okay if you don't take it seriously and think others are lost unless they believe like you. I had enough of that in the Tower, and don't need to repeat the same mistake.

    If looking for an intersting religious author, you might find books by John Shelby Spong a good read. I've read several, and enjoyed Why Christianity Much Change or Die. He's a deep thinker, and not afraid to speculate outside the orthodox box, an unusal trait for a bishop of Christian faith. Of course, you could join the brother/sisterhood of Sunday Morning Mattress Worshipers--that works for some, and you can shun the rising sun.

    "Busted"....so you were the TMS Servant... I am feeling guilty
    for saying that I hated the Min. School...AND I don't want
    to feel that way. I want the right to Say I Hated IT...because
    I did and do... There that feels better..!!!!

    Seriously tho...couldn't you Brothers see how upsetting it was
    for the Sisters at times to get these parts together.??? Worrying
    and all, for two weeks, making themselves nervous wrecks. I seen
    this so many times.

    I agree, I am just newly working my way thru this stuff...haven't
    really looked into anything one way or the other...just in Limbo.
    And tired of it.

    I do like to read, and appreciate the book list.
