This is an online critique, from Calder I think. There is a rebuttal in the sidelinks, but this classic critique stands in the legacy.

The world of the totalitarian guru is over and we need forthwith to find a successor

Posted in Uncategorized at 8:17 am

The world of the totalitarian guru is over and we need forthwith to find a successor. That successor is already implied by the reality of the current situation: which is a war of all against all, all gurus amongst themselves. This is really what has been described here over the past few years. These gurus are not demanding surrender, they refuse it themselves, they are really fighting for supremacy by eliminating rivals. The whole game is grotesque, and I note the hypocrisy of the Osho game: Rajneesh made a point of saying he never had a guru. So let us grant the same status to all.

What is needed is not the authority of the guru, but a means to self-defense in the coming chaos beyond guruism: already rogue sufis and buddhas are emerging to litter the field with new confusions. But wait, that already happened long ago: all these gurus are the riffraff of real guru tradition long since defunct.

Earth Could Reach Critical Climate Threshold in Decade, Scientists Warn 

Posted in Uncategorized at 3:54 am

The planet could pass the critical 1.5°C global temperature threshold in a decade—and is already two-thirds of the way to hit that warming limit, climate scientists warned on Thursday.Speaking at a University of Oxford conference this week, led by leading U.K. climate researcher Richard Betts, scientists said global greenhouse gas emissions are not likely to slow down quickly enough to avoid passing the 1.5°C target.

Rendition…seeking out and liberating the victims

Posted in Uncategorized at 11:38 am

Rendition

disciples so-called of gurus, viz. Gurdjieff and Osho, should see this film. In non-democratic systems, recalcitrant individuals, or even quite innocent ones, are subject to arbitrary imprisonment and may simply be left there until they go mad or die. Any authoritarian system will always produce variants of this kind of situation. The movie shows something related, but the point here is that the melodramatic escape is Hollywood and omits the many cases where there is no such ending.

We must always suspect rendition in many cases of disciples in buddhism, sufism, and xtianity. And that includes the world of the gurus save that the scale is different, the general awareness of what is going on is greater leading to outside help, etc…

The analogy is to the psychological imprisonment of the disciple by the guru who is creating a social ashram in the large. All these cults have endless numbers in variants of this.

Sufism, guruism, buddhism (oshoism) are dead…time to dismantle all of it and move on…

Posted in Uncategorized at 7:41 am

…and the Gurdjieff world is downright unsafe at any speed. Warn people away from it, and from interlopers like EJGold who have made sufism downright dangerous.

In general, NEVER surrender your will to an external agent in the name of any Faustian pact of a ‘spiritual path’. The consequences can be disastrous. People cling to guruism due to the mystique of getting a hit of ‘grace’ to make a path realized. But all of that is available from the individual himself.
