I see that much debate has been sparked already by the appearance of this community.
Rest assured, I came not to sow discord, but to truly enquire.
I note that the order itself appears to have roots in Gnosicism, and that is something that I know little about. As one sage, by the name of Bob Dylan said, " Don't criticise what you don't undestand" - so I won't.
Taoism is the system I feel most comfortable with, in terms of the way I think, believe and react and relate to everything around me.
Suffice it to say for now that I like what I have seen, where I understand it, and I hope that we may come to understand each other a little better before I finally make up my mind.
Even so, let it be known that, however things turn out as a result of our discussions, I respect the ideals which this community is trying to become established upon, and wish it's members well.
Peace and goodwill.
