The anti-Swami thread.
    #4099979 - 04/26/05 07:50 PM (11 years, 10 months ago)

Seeing as how some people have a gripe with Swami, might as well collect it all in one post.

It all boils down to: "Don't mess with my delicate illusions lest they fall apart like ancient parchment."

Those irritated by my words have yet to master the "IGNORE" function. To remedy this, there will be a one hour course tonight at 10PM PCT.

No gripes hear....  But wondering why you would want to collect "gripes" in the first place....?  :wink:
.
I personally think Swami is a clever Soul with a lot of Spirit - just as you....  But then, I can see thru the words....  :shrug:

Hmmm, the Swam is accused of having a BIG ego, yet takes no offense at ANYONE'S posts unless they are dangerous to others or are outright slander.

The accusers are offended because they are stuck in ego. Typical hypocrisy. When this is pointed out the attackers get twice as angry even though it is only their own reflection they are barking at.  :eek:

Welcome back e Motion. How was your trip?

Hey everyone has their part to play and their perspective. Maybe some people would like to see Swami go away because he rains on their parade. But they are full of bull if they can't defend their position to all comers. :mushroom2: I agree with him a lot and when I don't, in the end he's just another poster at the Shroomery. :heart:

IMHO, this place needs someone like Swami, who asks the questions that should be asked, so no gripes here...

Whenever someone complains about swamy it is assumed that this person is some kind of a new age follower believing in dolphins and complaining that swami doesnt believe in ghosts or something.
It has nothing to do with that.

I complain about Swami's blind faith

I wanted to collect them to get over with, as I'm tired of reading it, and I figure if it's all collected, all the bitching will die with the thread :wink:.

If EGO is the root of fear, some would have nothing to say or "gripe" about openly without something to specifically "seed" their thoughts of Ego driven opposition....  Since Swami's perspectives are the "Seeds" to other's "gripes", each gripe inturn waters a "Swami Seed" - giving life to a blooming perspective, and thus planting more seeds.... 
.
Somewhat "Cyclic" if you think about it....  Nothing really "dies"....  :grin:

I believe in dolphins. I've seen them myself. Does this make me a New Age follower?

So long as you are praised think only that you are not yet on your own path but on that of another.

Bullshit. Dolphins are just a bunch of new age hokum...

I beg to differ. Dolphins not only exist, but they are quite tasty when properly prepared.

1) You can't get married to your spouse who is the same sex as you.
2) You can't have an abortion no matter how much you don't want a child.
3) You can't have a certain plant in your possession or you'll get locked up with a rapist and a murderer.

4) We need a smaller, less-intrusive government.
