Good golly, rei, you're bang on it! VERY well stated.
An excellent idea to avoid the seemingly judgemental call, it may well be I go back to just "student of the universe".
And I also see "Lightworker" or "Darkworker", indeed, as just another spiritual phase, so there is a legitimate designation...but it's really gotten out of heart (hand).
I'm looking forward to your keen insights, rei; they certainly resonate with me.
