“Gurus can arouse intense emotions as there is extraordinary passion in surrendering to what one perceives as a living God. The inbuilt potential for violence is likewise great. Should the guru become paranoid, greedy or merely bored, as many do, they can get their disciples to do most anything.”

The Guru PAPER is such a valuable piece to learn from; here another quote from it:
At the heart of the ultimate trap is building and becoming attached to an image of oneself as having arrived at a state where self- delusion is no longer possible. This is the most treacherous form of self-delusion and a veritable breeding ground of hypocrisy and deception. It creates a feedback-proof system where the guru always needs to be right and cannot be open to being shown wrong— which is where learning comes from.
OK...I have to post the video. I am editing it now...stay tuned.
I'm somewhat disappointed, and the lost feeling seems to creep up a little, but I'm glad I am where I am NOW. I feel there is some truth in what these people are saying, it's just there's a society now that forces them into a monetary position. Even if Jesus didn't want anything, maybe people just were throwing money and things at him because of what he stood for and was saying.
As far as Mooji, I was done with him after The Invitation came out. He may as well been Coca-Cola at that point selling a campaign or slogan!
Yes pure arrogance personified from M. He never ever acknowledge s any body elses experience ss meankngful or genuine and the reason is simple, he cannot speak at that level. He jyst endlessly repeats the same old phrases and concepts. ' who is it yhat sees Ty he person'. Move on, say something original for god's sake.
Papaji did not acknowledge m, he gave him no mantra, no name, anx the few times that m spoke to him papaji took the piss out of him to expose his vast ego. Papaji nade fun of his name 'toni' saying it was a girls name . That girl was gangaji whos name was toni, these people pissed papaji off so he gave them a blast of Shakti and sent them on their way beleiving they were the chosen ones,. Papaji was just happy to be free of the parasites all asking for his blessing to teach and make big bucks
