Finally, do you think you'd still be welcome in Vlodrop or in any official TM flying facility? Absolutely. My standing in the Movement is without blemish and I can join any flying-facility anytime I like, internationally a letter of approval is necessary and no problem at all. Easy to say, difficult to prove, especially for someone who "never has the time" to do anything to do what his supposed teacher (MMY) told him to do. So what you're saying is that you have CHOSEN to disregard your teacher's instructions and have CHOSEN to never do your TMSP program in a group, rather than having been prevented from doing so. All while putting down those who might have done the same. Interesting. That's partly right I suppose. But Maharishi didn't order us to do the re-certification. It was an offer and those who for some reason hasn't done it can't teach but it doesn't mean we are out of the Movement in any other way than the teaching part. The re-certification courses is still open to all Teachers and is offered several times a year. I haven't found the time to do it, but it doesn't mean I won't some time in the future. I'm really interested in your answer to the last question, because I've been contacted by someone in Europe who has offered to give me your real name and the real story of why you are no longer part of the TM movement and are instead hiding out in Norway. It'll be interesting to compare this person's version with your own. Yeah right. These people are as non-excistent as Your "lurking reporters". And I'm very much part of the Movement but never had the time nor the opportunity to do the rectification courses though offers to take it comes at regular intervals every year. Right. :-) By the way, the word is "recertification," Nabby, not "rectification." The former refers to the course you would have had to take to still be considered a TM teacher and thus still part of the TM movement. The latter involves having things shoved up your rectum. :-) Point taken regarding spelling. Again, not having taken the re-certification course doesn't mean you're out of the Movement. Thanks for playing, though. At the very least you've got more balls than Jim Flanegin. However, I've noticed that despite many requests you still haven't posted any links to any of the photographs you consider YOUR art. Should we assume that this is because you're still an amateur and thus ashamed of them, or that it's because you're afraid to expose yourself to the same kind of criticism you've been aiming at Curtis? Curious minds want to know... :-) That's because, contrary to your friend Curtis, I don't consider myself an artist, as I have stated here before. It's an description reserved for those very special voices in the world having something very unique to say. Playing the guitar on street corners doesn't make you an artist any more than exhibiting photographs in galleries a few times as I have. I'm a commercial photographer selling my work to clients and thus make a living out of something I enjoy. They are happy, I am happy and that's all. It certainly doesn't make me an artist.
