It doesn't bother me at all, being compared to a past ideal of perfection, that no longer exists. That is like being told we were once a race of giants, and feeling short the rest of my life. Good point, though, for overall perspective.

As I said, lots of TMers, especially TM teachers, never really listened to MMY when he said thigns about how no-one is ever fully enlgihtened or that the state of world consciosuenss precludes anyone from become as enlightened as people were in the distant (Golden Age™) past and that therefore anything MMY ever said was necessarily limited and imperfect. It's sorta like the Christians who ignore Jesus' observation that everyone has "fallen short of the Glory of God. There is none perfect -no, not one." They always add "except Me" because Jesus couldn't possibly have been saying that HE was imperfect... Other Christians justify the phrase by saying that once he was resurrected, he was automatically perfect, so there. I've heard TM teachers discuss how Gurudev was the reincarnation of John the Baptist while MMY was the reincarnation of Jesus. It's pretty remarkable, all the stuff people say to themselves to justify ceasing to think for themselves, no matter what.
