Far More Spiritual than I....

I unsubscribed from an "Advanced Spiritual" yahoo group. Below is their unsubscribe message. If I was unsure about leaving the group, this message sealed the deal. Not only am I a defiant student, I am also swine and ignorant:

Must Say No?  
Most people are familiar with the Biblical advice given in the "Sermon on the Mount"
"Give not what is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine. Lest they trample them under their feet, and turn against and rend* you." - Bible, Matthew Chapter7, Text 6. (*rend = tear you apart violently.) 
This is not only a common theme found in all great scriptures, yet even secular teachers have no interest in trying to explain something to a defiant student. 
Therefore, if you prefer not to receive any further information about the Vedas, AVA events, or the process of spiritual growth honored by the great sages of ancient India, then simply request to be taken off of our mailing list. We will lament seeing you go when we do, but will gladly comply with your request.  
"Bewildered by the modes of material nature, the ignorant fully engage themselves in material activities and become attached. But the wise should not unsettle them, although these duties are inferior due to the performer's lack of knowledge. "- Bhagavad Gita As It Is; Chapter 3 Karma Yoga Text 29.

Thank you for your patience and interest!
