‘Confession’ of a pseudo-spiritual teacher and some reactions from followers

( Having known about X for many years, what follows should not be unexpected. He was disowned by his own mother as a teenager. It is possible to change, but has X changed? Some personalities seem to be irredeemable. Is the ego, as ego, irredeemable? Or is this a case of personality disorder, hard or impossible to treat? There are destinies and destinies… )


“Over the last several years, some of my closest students have tried to make it apparent to me that in spite of the depth of my awakening, my ego is still alive and well…I’ve understood this simple truth—that we all have egos no matter how enlightened we may be—and even taught it to thousands of people all over the world throughout my career. But when I was being asked to face my own ego by those who were nearest and dearest to me, I resisted. And I often made their lives difficult as a result… I’ve decided that I need to take some time off… My intention is to become a better teacher.”


I suggest that you take your own advice and give up the idea of continuing, at some point in the future, to be a teacher

Too Little – Too Late. This casual apology doesn’t even begin to address the trail of carnage and devastation left in your wake… if it is already your intention to continue as a teacher after a brief time of quiet reflection then you already know everything and haven’t faced a thing. Face Everything…

I can’t believe the insincerity of this statement…

…  after all the passion you showed in your teaching and in hammering us for so many years, I simply can’t believe how sterile, cold and lacking in heart this apology is…

We love you (X) and we will miss your inspirational comments and teachings no matter how short a time you choose to step down.

I wish you would be able to drop all agendas…

… you have always been a Burning FIre of inspiration to me, regarding Freedom relative to the perceived human condition, and our Real State.   (Second part next)
