You are correct in that in rereading what I wrote, I should have said something like "a visible minority of TM teachers and govs are often preoccupied ...."
I didn't mean to say all TM teachers are like that -- I wrote it too hastily. I agree with you "A lot of TM teachers and governors are not preoccupied with making money at all, whether quickly or slowly." The majority. My point is that I have seen a lot of others who reflect the characteristics of my points. And it appears to me a higher proportion than found in society as a whole, though maybe I tend to hang with maintstream career types and my vision is skewed. There certainly is a lot of mojo in the lottery. Though I don't personally know many people who buy such lousy odds gambles. And my personal experience with easy money teachers was in the 70's and then looking a bit at a distance in the 80's and 90's -- with periodic personal encounters that appeared to confirm what I was seeing and hearing from afar. And FF appears to have had its share, actually a higher share than mainstream society from what I can tell, of scam artists, easy money schemes etc. Along with a lot of hard working people in intelligently concieved businesses. So sorry if my observations were overgeneralized, but for a segment of teachers, I still believe its a fair characterization. --- In FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com, "feste37" <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> wrote: > > From my 35+ years in and around the movement, I've not observed this. I think you could argue that the reverse is true, at least as far as your first point is concerned. A lot of TM teachers and governors are not preoccupied with making money at all, whether quickly or slowly. They have a more spiritual orientation to life and are not so concerned with the accumulation of material > things. The gullibility and stupidity you ascribe to them seems unfair, to say the least. > > --- In FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com, akasha_108 <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> wrote: > > > > > From I have seen in 35+ years,in and around the movement: > > > > 1) TM teachers and govs are often preoccupied with making money quickly. > > > > 2) TM teachers and govs are often open to "magical thinking", often lack much critical evaluation, logic and analytical skills, and therefore are vulnerable to get-rich-quick schemes. > > > > 3) TM teachers and govs are often have talked the talk of incredible undemonstrated stuff for so long, using TM slogans and lingo, that BS can often make great sense to them "hey its just like ....". They do draw parallels and analogies as if this were a proof. And worse yet, often the analogies are to nebulous, abstract unproven stuff to begin with from TMO-world. ------------------------ Yahoo!
