You don't read their stuff, but i figured it would make your day to 
learn that Jim and Ann (both who claim that they are not obsessed with 
you) have been bragging about having read A WHOLE BOOK about Rama (the 
same one you told us about) so that they can obsess on you even more 
while trying to demonize you. You were right, this place is a zoo.

That's why you called our attention to your work with Lenz, right

Apparently you has never read Laxer's /Take Me For A Ride/ where you are 
used as an example by Mark to indicate that you were a True Believer. I 
assumed this since I posted a long message about the book back in 2003 
along with a review of Lenz's two novels, /Surfing the Himalayas/ and 
/Snowboarding to Nirvana./


Your response was very weak indicated to me that you didn't want to talk 
about your work for Lenz, so why are you so concerned now?


Apparently one of your buttons got pushed.  Go figure.

When I read Laxter's, Take Me For A Ride, Coming Of Age In An Abusive Cult, I 
was trying to figure out if any of the characters were in fact, Barry, though 
Mark used pseudonyms. Which one is Barry?

 bawee has claimed in the intro to his own Road Mind Trip fluff piece that he 
was not anywhere close to the inner circle around Rama and didn't spend any 
time directly with him.

Yes, but this is merely to foster Barry's image of himself. There were a few 
contradictory clues to that, in Mark's book. Watch when all of the purges 
occurred in Lenz's organization, and how those that were left, had to swear 
absolute fealty to Lenz, with deeper and deeper loyalty, each time the group 
was purged. Barry made it through all of the purges, and that speaks for 
itself. Also, Barry was more than likely kicked out of the organization, since 
that was another Lenz hallmark, when a chump wanted to leave.

 Some interesting excerpts from bawee's little memoir:
 

 I never put much serious effort into writing stories about my spiritual 
experiences for publication. I just wrote them for myself. And of course, being 
the somewhat ego-centered individual that I am, many of these stories weren't 
about Rama at all - they were about me. They were about the cool moments that I 
had experienced while pursuing my own weird pathway to enlightenment.
 

 

 The stories are not about Rama per se. Other, more talented and less 
egocentric writers will create those books. These are just the stories of a 
normal, everyday seeker who was fortunate enough to have had some remarkable 
experiences in the aura of a remarkable teacher. Don't expect revelations or 
gossip from an insider or member of the 'inner circle.' I wasn't that great a 
student, and had very few personal interactions with the man. And many of them 
were in public restrooms. So the stories are mine, but if he was the excellent 
teacher I believe he was, his teaching should somehow reveal itself in these 
stories about my life. Because he helped shape that life, and I am grateful to 
him for his skill and craftsmanship.

Things have seriously taken a turn for the worse, since then. Perhaps it has 
slowly dawned on him, how much he was damaged by Lenz, in terms of relating to 
normal people, in a normal way. Or not.:-o
