Sorry, until you read the entire article, you are mistaken. then let me know..... This is a comprehensive and inclusive article. It is a disservice to take it out of context.

Re: The Six Lamps

heartdrops fell off the shelf 25+ years ago, lucky life. have you ever talked to your root guru in person? just what does this all mean? forgive, I obviously don't understand. I can't comprehend how we can judge what we are ready for.

This type of thing was active at ZFI for years, yes years... the most talked about topic on the forum. what does that say? The infamous letter signed by the 66 righteous ones ... lot of good it did.
