Comment: People wonder why an enterprise
fails. Because nobody knows what is the goal. Nobody has a vision, a goal
to move towards. Serving humanity... Very nice... What does that mean?
You say everyone welcome... that is your mistake...
if you try and make something exclusive everyone will try to join. :-)
It seems that naivety and lack of worldliness is an affliction aswel as
a blessing :-) Here are some practical goals towards which we can work:
1. Creating an ashram or temple
Well... ideas are not the issue pick one - move towards
it less wool, more reality... Saying we will come together and something
will happen - rubbish - nothing will happen except good intentions and
2. Creating a healing center
3. Creating a World Center for followers of the
Left hand Path (you probably don't have the guts for that)
4. Developing a new age center for burnt out
high achievers, business types etc.
5. Creating a New Age School
6. Developing a conference center for a World
Wide New Age Festival
BE WELL Have a Gentle Heart and A Hard Will

Dhara: Your proposals for goals are fascinating.
As far as the idea of creating a center for burnt out achievers, business
types... is concerned: Some of my clients were already interested and asked
me to send them a program.
Until now I always had a goal: Studies,
job - and I achieved the goals. I was rather afraid of NOT having a goal.
Almost everybody I know has goals
(build a house, center, family, relationship, etc.) some achieve their
goals some don't. A failure is therefor not caused by a lack of goals.
On the contrary: Goals are not real,
"on the ground". They are wishes for the future. Some of them never come
into existence because - I guess - they are too far away from reality.
Reality often turns out to be different from the pre-defined goals and
actions. A goal even keeps me from looking around to discover what there
is really and what has to be done spontaneously. This might not be as fascinating
as building a "center for burnt out achievers", but more "being", more
aware if I dare.
