for sharing the latest from the Moo camp... I wasn't even aware that we would be able to watch the Great Moo live from Lisbon, so of course you can imagine my excitement when I saw that one of the satsungs is available to view for free!!Here it is
Now, I know that not everyone has the time to watch Moo, so I've written up a little review for everyone to read, just so as you can grasp the basic ideas and get a feel for what Tony Moo is all about.**********
The video begins with the usual dour, dreary music, not at all to my taste, but I'm sure someone, somewhere enjoys it.
At 6.57 see the Moo devotees assembled in the hall. It's the usual suspects... so decidedly devout and eager. I almost envy their innocence.
At 16.05 we see the lovely Shree
(I believe) stand up to introduce old Moo. But wait... where is the long list of rules and regulations that she usually delights in regaling us with? What, no rules, this time? Shree's salary has obviously been cut due to unforeseen revenue falls...now the cult can only afford to employ her for the short version of the introduction. Poor Shree.
At 21.00 we are still viewing Tony's empty chair! Where is Tony? What has happened to him? Such suspense, dear viewers! What a lovely chair it is, too. Such opulence.
At 28.27, finally we are witness to the Second Coming.
All hail! Rejoice! It's
Tony. Oh dear me; Tony looks tired. He has a slight frown on his holy face. Either he is suffering from wind, or he is worried about something.
At 32.00 Moo speaks. No, wait... he doesn't speak. Looks like he has nothing to say? That would be a first! There is a huge pause. Maybe he has forgotten the script? He seems to be stalling for time. Ok, it looks like Moo is going to forego the usual opening trance sequence and go straight to questions form the audience.
The first guy up from the audience looks like a genuine seeker, but is quite obviously a plant from the Moo group
. It's scripted for sure. Too, too obvious! Where is the subtlety? But I think the audience buys it.
The guy states that he is "out of moves"
- which is unfortunately the title of one of the popular Moo videos on Youtube - could it be a co-incidence? I doubt it, I think the cult are going with something they already know will work... they are playing it safe.Mooji
then uses the expression "out of moves" a few times, to reinforce it. He explains the situation of the guy from the audience for
us, without even asking questions of the guy himself. Right. It's scripted.
Ohhhhh... here we go. The bullsh*t begins in earnest now! Tony says a whole lot of stuff that makes no sense. At 39.26 Moo says "everything that comes must go."
So, he really is a great sage after all- predicting his own demise!
At 44.50 the poor guy from the audience expresses his confusion. He says "I'm formless." In response, Moo dishes up the 'word salad' and wrings a few laughs from the crowd.
Tony says "That which sees, can that be seen?"
Then he answers his own question straight up: "All things can be seen."
But no.... he has to qualify his own answer..... he goes off on an incredible tangent about seeing and being seen. It's very confusing, but Tony tells us "this is easier than easy."
Ummmmm..... no, actually it doesn't make a lot of sense, Tony. But by telling us how easy
it is, he is making us doubt our own thought process. It's very worrying.
At 49.44 the camera pans out to the audience. In the center of the shot, a man yawns
! I feel the same way. It's so freaking tiring trying to concentrate on this bullsh*t.
At 56.12 the same poor man
from the audience that got up to ask the scripted question is still standing there. (No-one from the cult have signaled him to sit down yet???) He explains that he is an an "unbearable"
state. (I'm not surprised... it's been nearly half and hour) Tony has lost the plot
, too;- he asks the man what his question was again? Because he has forgotten it!!
I rest my case.
