This site was never intended to be a collection of what Steve thinks about this or that. On the other hand, nobody is attracted to a bare-bones site with an under-construction look and feel. So some additional writing apparently needs to be done to get the ball rolling. (And kudos to Paul, Mike and Gary for their ongoing contributions. Update - thanks also to Vince for his recent commentaries on the Albigen Papers.)

Policy decisions made to date have been to present Albigen-related material in a way that reconciles it with RR's views on the topic where applicable. So Zen or Gurdjieff pages on this site would incorporate RR's views on Zen or Gurdjieff, while Douglas Harding pages on this site will reflect views of RR's students rather than RR himself, because RR wasn't familiar with Douglas Harding (correct me if I'm wrong).

Here's the problem: There's a lot of work to do, more than enough for one person. These words are for those who have ears to hear.

There's a special opportunity for people who enjoy listening to RR's recorded talks, in that when they come across examples of what we call "related teachings", they could email them to the site admin for posting to the "Related Teachings" pages. Or perhaps more conveniently, they could post reference to such materials to the Forums area, being careful to abide by copyright limitations (brief quotes only).

I don't quite get what you're asking for here. Can you unpack that a little bit?

Re: Rethinking some of this ...

Great to see Vince is doing the Albigen Papers, he has an uncanny ability to remember things and was there near the beginning.

Bravo!!!
