We share this ideal alike.
It's very good for newcomers to Kundalini to be able to
meet other ppl in the process and see the different
sides to it and last but not least the faces
behind it. :)
Reading ancient scriptures is ok, but meeting someone
with an open mind and friendly voice cannot
(almost) compare to it.

I suppose this is what's the problem.
Everybody with the exception of a very few here,
are still somewhat emotionally attached to their
own views and arguments.
And with some ppl in the process of finding their
views and arguments,
it is not strange egos get heated
and arguments fly in between.
Too much ojas, anyone ? ;) LOL !
The things is, as I see it, there is a difference
b/n presenting one's arguments with (or without)
passion and starting to attack someone's
character or personality (aka ego).
Of course, egos should shrink and usually do in
the process of K rising, but
I deeply suspect an ego has to get to a certain
size before it is able to deal with K most
or this theory may be just full of bull... ;)
anyway.... some ppl have a more sensitive ego than
others and we all have our particular buttons we
don't like seeing pushed.
(I know 'cause I obviously pushed some of yours some
time ago, El. :) )

Yes, but those will be found by ppl no matter
Some ppl even grow up in hostile environments.
And: giving room to ppl is in MHO by far the best
way to ensure spiritual (and otherwise) growth.

As well as the vitality of the list.
And besides, I have a strong feeling if one is saying
something in here, there are many others thinking
the same thing but not saying anything.
I hardly think one is alone. :)
El, let me say, I'm not saying this to disagree,
in fact, I very much agree with you on this.
The first time it has happened. ;))
