Yep, I never had much interest in being super rich, or famous, just happy, and successful, with myself, my family, and my friends, which can be enough of a challenge, if you always dream big. Those that go after fame and fortune, dedicate themselves 100% to the goal. And they succeed. Some of these people in interviews, express, how, at the age of five or so, they wanted to be on stage, or vowed to themselves, to be rich. Very one-pointed. I am happy, and ordinary, and ecstatic right now, as it has just started *pouring rain*, a sound I haven't heard since one night in the mountains, back in March! Jai Guru WATER! Such a soothing sound for us all, in this drought. Yay! ---In FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com, <steve.sundur@...> wrote :
Oh, I missed this from Barry.

Certainly no TM TB on this forum has ever accomplished much of anything. What is WRONG with reminding these people how fuckin' ORDINARY they are? Hey, I'm pretty fucking cool, and my resentment is that for 29 years, I was always trying to prove to myself that TM was the reason for my impressiveness. Turns out, I was always cool, always a writer/inventor, always creative, always full of hope and love for living. So there's the concept: whatever we did have by way of excellencies Maharishi TOOK FUCKING CREDIT FOR ALL OF IT. Now that's Grand Theft. If you had coattails, the movement wanted a free ride on them.
