Mooji's latest book is grandiosely called "Immediate Awakening for Everyone", which seems as definitive as the lengthy medical disclaimer now on his website to keep anyone away that might become a liability.

Played the crowdTuesday, March 27, 2018 at 9:41:00 AM PDT
I'm very happy to read this. The line "playing to the crowd" just hit me so hard.
I have six months into a stay in Mooji's Ashram. I was very down and lost because of pressures I was under there. Suffering and seemingly surrounded by people who were psychologically absent (no not in a good way). It was all 'satsang' so it's all accepted and allowed, until they decide something is wrong with you and then you're quietly bustled out.
One day I was herded in front of a group of fifty people while Mooji was holding court. It was so inappropriate. And I tried to explain what was happening. But he just started talking and everyone started giggling, and it immediately struck me "Wow, he's just playing to the crowd".
And then I chose to push that feeling away. If you've been there, or if you're still there, then you know how the grouptalk allows you write off what I'm saying.
"If you're in your mind, he won't see you"
"He wants your 'A' questions not your 'B' and 'C' questions"
"He gave you what you needed in that moment"
And any number of little slogans that you've been conditioned to believe that allow this sort of behavior to be justified. But it wasn't. I pushed away that thought of him playing to the crowd, because there was no one there who would allow that idea.
But it's exactly what he was doing.
