Roberta Anderson's Reply to WEU Blog
Imagine my surprise in finding my post to the WE blog appearing here on this site. It's probably my own dim-wittedness, but having read through the posts on this blog I can't figure out what you guys are up to or why you are spending so much energy on what appears at least to my reading to be pretty silly stuff. It's certainly okay to be concerned over "unfair censorship", but to make a whole blog devoted to this boggles my mind just a bit. Despite the fact that you apparently have several bones to pick with the WE blog, the truth is that at least as I see it, there are actually a number of sincere people posting there who are genuinely struggling together to sort out and come to a deeper understanding of their own experience. And they really want to do this because they are actually interested not only in their own evolution, but in trying to learn more about what works and what doesn't work in this arena for everyone who finds themselves drawn into wanting to grow and evolve. They want to do this because they actually do care about these rather delicate and profound matters of the human heart! I can't seem to find anything like this "heart" on this blog.. And furthermore (!), my own experience does not to me resemble anything like my "psyche caving in"after being played and being manipulated by some kind of insidious "good cop-bad cop routine"! Wow! I am merely continuing to see more and more deeply into this pretty confused situation because I am continuing to look..and look?and look?because of my own genuine interest in wanted to come to terms with it all. I definitely agree that I "still have some way to go to sort out my reality"!?and I frankly hope that this will always be true. One of the many valuable things I learned from Andrew is that the best we can to is to find tentative hypotheses about the truth of anything, and to keep our eyes open and continue to try to keep examining whatever it is. This matter of "Truth" I think is a pretty subtle matter, and whenever we think that we "have it down" we have lost it. This is part what I tried to express in my last post about the difficulty of holding All Of It simultaneously.
And as for "being casually dropped" by these evil WE blog editors in a week or so ?I can't even wrap my mind about what this could mean. Despite what may appear to be differences between us in trying to come to terms with our own experience, the fact is that all of us are very old and dear friends. Even if we may appear to have different ideas, we actually respect what each other have to say and know that we can all learn from each other--there is something far deeper going on than one face or another appearing and disappearing every week on one blog or another.
And re your last point about the "manipulative exit counselors fighting over my spare dollars"! I don't unfortunately seem to have too many spare dollars, and if I did, I am pretty sure I would find quite a few other things to do with them than using them to get "deprogrammed" or whatever!
With warm regards,
