from the TOS in America
no one in the TS and TOS in America
who doesn’t love longstanding TOS member, Miles Standish
little town of Cottonwood,
Arizona! In recent years, Miles has done a great deal
work for the
TOS-USA but now his son Lloyd has taken over as Webmaster, and he can
concentrate his energy on a cause in which he believes: the
First American culture and spirituality.
In the name of
the TOS and of his computer club, over the past few years Miles has
and delivered items to the Sioux tribe on the Rosebud Indian
South Dakota, to the Hualapai in northern Arizona and to the San Carlos
Reservation in eastern Arizona. He has
driven through sleet and snow to deliver blankets and winter clothing
friends. He collected, restored and set
up six computers for each of these groups. More
recently he has concentrated on shoring up the
Sicangu Sun Times
for the Rosebud Reservation as he feels that an independently owned and
operated newspaper on the reservation is vital to the health and
the people. Some of this was reported on
the website of TOS-USA, and the publisher appointed Miles to the
board of the paper. More details at: http://www.theoservice.org/node/241
Miles is a
member of the TOS board of directors. He
feels that a thriving TOS can be a help to the TS because service work
group setting can be more invigorating than when alone.
He says, “Selfless service is plainly
identified as the highest form of action for anyone aspiring to 'get on
evolution’. Jesus emphasised it,
Blavatsky emphasised it and it's the underlying theme of At
the Feet of the Master. The world is
always grateful to anyone who
One of our
most faithful and enthusiastic TOS members,
Miles began glider pilot training in October last year, soloed in
completed his practical test in December.
Last May, he made this special flight.
Note his wife Lea stowed in the passenger seat. Greater faith hath no woman!
The other two ladies in the photo are long-time
friends who were at their wedding 31 years ago.
Miles has this to say to us all: “The next time you pass
I hope you will
go flying with me! Afterwards, we’ll go
to lunch together and we can exchanges ideas on TOS work.”
