Were you reminded of that line from Annie Hall? "Those that can't do, teach. And those that cannot teach, teach gym."
Another question comes to mind regarding Truth and facts. Can the TA impart facts to their human of indwelling as they impart Truth?
Can facts be auto-revealed?

fanofVan wrote:Manny - You call me scholar...I make no such claim. I cannot say what the quote "means" except what it means to me - here and now (as opposed to there and then) - but not what it means to you Manny. I find the book and its text means different things to different students and even different things or more things to the same reader over time and experience with each reading.
fanofVan wrote:There is nothing said however, according to my understanding, about the study and sharing of the Papers or any other text where no authority resides and no creeds or dogmas offered. Those who study, whether on their own or in groups, have no uniformity in beliefs or any need for agreement in "meanings" of that studied together in this gift of fact and truth. It means nothing if such meaning is not personal and experiential. The UB says what it says....and doesn't say what it does not. Now to learn together and to teach one another is a grand form of unity that serves all who share only sincerity and the Papers in their studies.
fanofVan wrote:Personally, I find the text you posted as irrelevant to the question you pose here and also to the discussion thus far. So, it obviously means something to you that it does not mean to me. But perhaps you would share your take on its meaning and I might learn thereby?
