I would also be interested in hearing any thoughts about Mooji/the Mooji scene as it is in 2017.
My own recent experience attending a Mooji satsang, the first spiritual event I'd been at, was that I felt myself becoming once more my forgotten, calmed self, risen up from the lowest level of consciousness, and as if for the first time connected with reality outside of my collapsed mind.
When the song took place at the end of the satsang, I looked at Mooji and felt "There is God!". I was certainly in a trance when listening to him, and I felt the white-light energy around him.
I was raised as Christian, then for 25 years had a severe anxiety disorder which I fuelled with various addictions. Mooji showed me a way out of it, as he speaks to my consciousness before its anxiety. Whatever minor critique may be made of him, it is of no consequence if he offers me a way out of the hell my adult life has been.
And yet it troubles me, coming from a Christian background, that I see that he is worshipped, and that he (or his team) encourages people to worship him. They sell canvas picures of his feet, as if enlightenment came from devotion and surrender to Mooji. And songs declare "Mooji is the answer, Mooji is the way"; rather than "Mooji will point you towards the way". It also seems like he is dismissive or disparaging of other paths, such as yoga or meditation, or religious learning.
Yet, is he not deserving of worship? Well, he is certainly very nice and patient with everyone who meets him; but, then, he exists in a bubble, surrounded only by those who worship him. It's easy to be nice to your pious disciples.
But perhaps this is just me not understanding that the "person" is very small in Mooji, and he is indeed an embodiment of God; a vehicle through which we can channel our desire to believe in and praise God, and so uncover our own best natures.
It might also be that I am not familiar or comfortable with the Indian tradition of guru-worship. Although one Indian I spoke with said that the true guru does not ask to be venerated.
When I listen to Mooji, I also sometimes think "Well, what exactly is he actually saying? Is there any content to this? Could it be rephrased and repeated by somebody else; or is it just an endless babble of soothing words intended to put you into a trance state so as to anaesthetize the mind?" And if it is just babble, isn't that alright, since it's my mind I want to overcome?
Here a recent interview with Mooji: [www.youtube.com
And a video by Adyashanti discussing the need for a guru (incidentally I find myself more comfortable with Adyashanti's teachings, as he does not seem to ask to be worshipped, but shares a similar message): [www.youtube.com
Thank you for reading, and I would be glad to hear your thoughts.
