Richard, sometimes, and this is one of those times, it's just how you say 
something that cracks me up. Yay!

    Not so sure about that. According to the Turq himself he was involved 
because it presented plenty of opportunities to pick up broads. Doesn't sound 
as if he was into meditation much.

 The question is, did he enjoy? There must be a better way to pick up broads 
than to go on a monk retreat. He said they wouldn't even let him buy an ice 
cream cone. He seems to be better suited to a householder life in Amsterdam.

 Turq did practise TM for a number of years. If what you say is true, TM was a 
total failure. This seems to be a problem with spiritual  techniques in 
general, that most of the time they fail, if we go by our view of the persons 
practising them, and even according what these persons they say to us about 
their experiences. Success is rare.

 Yes, preliminary. The thing about experiences, even intermittent witnessing, 
is that some people collect these experiences, while remaining unchanged, 
themselves. Driven by egoic fear. It is like being a tourist of 
higher-consciousness experiences. I did  listen to a bit of the Sat Shree 
interview and he says a veil, separating him from the rest of the universe, was 
torn open, with no possibility of being repaired. To live Being, silence, and 
bliss, is a far different thing, than collecting, "I saw  this", and, "this 
happened once", and, "for awhile, this other thing happened". Enlightenment is 
not an aggregate, a museum, or even, a mausoleum, of experiences - that's how 
religions get born, in the graveyards of memories, of higher consciousness.  
  Experiences, as seen in the mind, continually shrink - very unsatisfying, 
whereas enlightenment constantly, effortlessly taps that font of creativity and 
expansion [pure awareness], renewing itself, so the mind, when it does act, has 
no need to rely on stale and shrinking memories - it can go anywhere it 
chooses, or just rest empty, in pure awareness. Once everything is available, 
there is no longer a need to collect experiences of any variety, no matter how 
tantalizing their memory may be.

  The Turq hasn't had any spiritual experiences in his whole life. Forty-five 
years ago he experienced a few days of  witnessing in Fiuggji, but that's only 
a preliminary experience. Yet he likes to brag about it even today, decades 
later. Later he had some hallucinations about his Buddhist-guru, the Lenz-guy 
who  killed himself while wearing a dog-collar around his neck, levitating. And 
that's it. The fact is that the Turq-fellow never had any spiritual experiences 
at all. Yet he judge others, what a phony.
