I, for one, do not think you are a sexist.? Misogynist, perhaps, but sexist?

This is a tough network! First, I was accused of being a racist and now a sexist! I learned my RS-1 at the feet of Kay Lush and Charles Lingo so one could see why I am easily confused.

Hey you dear "guys",


This gal?recalls we said that:

RSI (and all our methods that?emerged from that understanding of TWLI) was branded on our eyelids;

When we were?deployed overseas, we needed to be able to teach RSI?in an instant,?even as we passed another person, while "swinging across the jungle on a vine." [I attribute this last image to Slicker];

"Cutting off the right arm" was what?might be required?in our time (the 20th C)?to signify being the Church; and

?When all was finally at stake, we would, collectively, from every point across the globe, move backwards toward Chicago, brandishing our "swords," to protect our sacred place of Origin.

So, the notch in the ear and the toe tag (for one who has always worn ear baubles of some kind,?and painted her toes)?are not as memorable.? But any common glue is good glue, I say.


Peace and affection,

I was so sure we said on the underside of our eyelids!? At any rate, that's where I had mine done.

Can you return a tattoo?? Or exchange it?

Bill, thanks for sending the story.? It is great.? Were the questions helpful?


For those of you who have not yet sent their stories, the link is:




On your question about glue, Bill -- someone sent out an email on this . . . and I lost it . . .


Gordon, Jack,


Do you have the email with the picture of the tattoo of the earthrise we are all engraving at the?base of our spines??? Bill (see below) did not see that one.? I hurt my back over the holidays and cannot twist around to take a close enough picture of mine to pass the censors or post on my personal page.

??? Like most of you I'm frequently?awakened to discover I've been thinking about the material out of Junaluska, and there seems to be something missing. So I share this reflection with you and, perhaps, you can set my mind at rest.

??? Rev. Joe Buckles (from Kansas) was responsible for my desire to join the Order. One day I visited with Joe in Chicago when everything was run out of our facilities at 5th City. He greeted me warmly and asked what I was doing now. I launched into my best presentation about establishing the Lake Ministries in the State of Kansas, and how?deeply involved I was in recreational ministries.

??? Joe looked at me and replied, "Um-m, too bad your work is so reduced. The world needs your spiritual energy rather than just the state of Kansas."?I laughed off his spiritual dart, but the truth was too clear to be ignored.?Shortly after that both Beverly and I were on our way to the Ordered Life.

??? What was it that held us together? As I remember, one thing was the critique that we were Nothings in history because we made paramount The Great Awakening to live the humane life by?creating structures for the Human Factor in Human?Development. The point being,?we became the nothings so that our secular-religious Christ could be everything.

??? We lived on behalf of those unable to, unwilling to, or in denial about, living the Awakened Life against the day when all the earth would live?the awakened life? together.

??? For this purpose we used the traditions of the Christian Church as the theological glue to hold us as one. This was grounded?in the?Daily Office and the Sunday evening?Common Meal.

??? Did anything like this get raised at Junaluska?

??? Maybe I've been reading too much of "Mother Teresa: Come Be My Light." Here is the?living embodiment?of Transparent Doing done in the midnight of her soul that experienced the entire absence of faith. She stood as the little Dutch Girl with her finger in the dyke holding back the destructive waters of social degradation?against the day the Missionaries of Charity would have the structures in place to do what history needed them to do.

???? Maybe this is what?our Order is experiencing since 1988? Certainly, this has been a dark night of?our corporate?soul, but I've lost sight of the transparent awakening event the world is waiting for.

??? The lesson I keep coming back to is the glue that held her together, and that of her sisters/brothers,?and that kept her work going was the Eucharist. If, and when, the Order again finds its voice, what will be the Eucharist that sustains it?

??? Enlightenment please!

??? Bill Salmon


Jim Wiegel here.? This is a good question.? I have not read Mother Teresa's book.? Bill Bailey sent me a CD of their advent service and that was interesting, and I found an old book that had Chardin's Mass on the World in it, and that was even more interesting in this regard.?


I think we have not gotten further than to suggest putting personal pages on the repository web site as a sign that you acknowledge the declaration that was drafted. (That is, in addition to the tattoo)
