Note From Swami to his Followers
    #3455145 - 12/06/04 04:47 PM (11 years, 11 months ago)

Don't follow!

Think, read, study, experiment, explore, challenge, doubt, discuss, attempt, discover, practice, research, question, travel, do!

But don't follow!

That is the sum total of my "teachings".

HEy swami, great message!

isnt that really what all the true spiritual gurus taught?

I believe they taught that they were "guides", or the "way", but never to accept without question or doubt.

Now, that doesnt mean you shouldnt have faith in your teacher.....but its great to realize that each man has before him his OWN unique path.....he can be shown the general direction, but the path is for him.

Oh well. I guess I can cancel my travel plans.

I was going to follow you to Vegas with a quarter pound of the finest herb and a couple of call girls.

Damn.

I DO however, have room for one disciple. I will accept the gifts you bring as Prasad (an offering to the gods).

I'm not going to follow your teachings  :sun:


--------------------
Annnnnnd I had a light saber and my friend was there and I said "you look like an indian" and he said "you look like satan" and he found a stick and a rock and he named the rock ooga booga and he named the stick Stick and we both thought that was pretty funny. We got eaten alive by mosquitos but didn't notice til the next day. I stepped on some glass while wading in the swamp and cut my foot open, didn't bother me til the next day either....yeah it was a good time, ended the night by buying some liquor for minors and drinking nips and going to he diner and eating chicken fingers, and then I went home and went to bed.---senior doobie

By not following them, you are following them! Heh, it's a paradoxical Catch-22 from which there is no escape. *echoes into distance* (e-s-c-a-p-e, e-s-c-a-p-e, e-s-c-a-p-e)

way to swing it to your corner cause for a second I was thinking how can I follow when shouldn't follow?  by not following I really am following.  thus I am always a follower.  help!!!!!  :grin:
