part of what I do with my life is tell the unvarnished truth about liar Marshy and his cons, rather than whitewash and sugar coat the facts about who and what he was and what his very unpleasant legacy is.

All of us, spread around the globe, and yet, united, through our association with Maharishi, and the myriad knowledge he brought out. It is so easy to judge a global public figure. Some go at it, as an exercise in compensation, for their own failings, and others to confirm their own set of beliefs. I find it amazing, his reach and influence on all of us. Some of us got off the train early, perhaps fearful of the universal momentum that Maharishi engendered in each of us, and its ability to mechanically dissolve any boundaries. My wife has remarked before, that feelings come first, and the story follows. So it is, if we are always hungry for something, and grasping for whatever it may be. Easy, then, to turn on a public figure, meticulously examining Maharishi's life, even ten years after his passing, for any information, that may be used to point a finger, away from the lack, the gnawing, inside us, and towards him. This public figure, with global influence. Make Maharishi the target, not in any meaningful, or organized way, but simply to deal with the inner feelings of discontent. There is nothing expressed here, about Maharishi, that has not already been examined, to death. And yet, there are a few, who must persist, in their "critical, life changing, important and ever fresh", insults of the man and his work, lest they one day, turn such a critical eye on themselves. My question to them, is simply this, "Life is precious; WTF are you doing with yours?"
