you better set Michael straight, Sal, and Barry too, for that matter. they are both under the impression that TM is, like, totally ineffective, baby meditation. but here you are describing it as a strong gateway "drug"

It serves to illustrate what total complete assholes the Movement is made of and what incredibly stupid mentality is encouraged and taught in the Movement. And these are the people who want to teach our kids meditation in schools? No thanks. I think it's quite sweet how they believe this stuff just because Marshy said so, and then go around claiming "nature support" and other bizarre powers. But every religion has its own little language and way of deluding themselves, I could live among them only because they tell you during the teaching process that you don't have to change your beliefs. I held them to it, and they didn't like me reminding them, apparently I was "supposed" to have absorbed the teaching by the time I was a well practised "siddha". How we all laughed.... I agree with you about schools though, I've no objection to kids learning to meditate but TM is such a strong gateway drug it's easy to get swept up in the hyperbole, and if you show any sort of keenness that gets put on the database and you get invited to donate to pundits and yagyas and all that bull. Some of them will even end up bouncing around on their backsides for hours every day. Keep religion out of schools. That's what I say.

They didn't really claim Lynch's smoking is his self referral?? Of course they did! The statement means nothing so it can be co-opted to support anything you like. I had it explained to me by our "raja", he said that what you do is close your eyes and look inwards at your "self" and it will tell you if something is right. I always that that was called desire or even just agreeing with yourself and didn't know why the TMO gave it a special name but it's like that with a lot of kooky spiritual stuff, makes them think they have better life skills than the rest of us. The example he used on me was astrology, when I told I thought it was a crock he said he wondered about it too until he looked at his "self" and found he agreed with himself. (?) Maybe we should do that with 9/11 conspiracies and see how the "self" guides us. LOL.

I think Bevan Morris should get back on the fags then, and Hagelin is looking a but chubby these days. I can just see them on the Marshy channel stubbing one out in an ashtray and swigging back the dregs of a 'cino before puja. It's vedic, they'll cough. They had to find a way of excusing Lynchees habits, so they claimed it was self-referral. Like that explains anything at all. He is probably typical American pitta-kapha and kapha dominant too much of the time. Those two substances are known in ayurveda to reduce kapha. My late tantra guru probably would not have have died of congestive heart failure if he had not quit smoking. He immediately put on weight when he quit. I also think that people who are kapha will be less likely get emphysema from smoking as that tends to happen more with vata types. Creative people often fight with having a creative mindset and being able to act on it. For instance a lot of jazz musicians were bright people who easily learned their instruments and music theory but a bit too high strung to play well without some help from drugs (or some meditation).
