Leaving "The Continuum" behind,
Without Conscience, Morals, or Any Sense of Guilt or Responsibility
James Swartz continues to "Teach" Lies, Rubbish, and BS
Mixed with a Few "Real" Things
To Keep His Unlucky "Followers" Hanging On
Not all lawyers are greedy and bad. Not all politicians are corrupt liars. In fact, most live on a continuum, with the majority being as good as "common sense," 'being practical," and "facing reality" allows.
Living on a continuum, being as good as possible as long as I become rich, secure, successful, and, in the political world, reelected.
Spiritual teachers--real ones--are not on any sort of continuum. They live from a place beyond where worldly experiences, success, fame, and wealth matter. There's nothing wrong with fame or wealth if it happens as a byproduct of "How Things Are," but if only a hand to mouth unknown existence takes place, that is just fine, too.
James Swartz is off the continuum for a different reason. He doesn't believe in "good." He doesn't believe in any sort of guilt, at least mentally. In his mind, he has understood that, at the deepest levels of spirituality, that everything is impermanent, to attach to anything is to feel dissatisfaction, and that even the individual self is not "real." (These are the core teachings of the Buddha and of Sri Ramana Maharshi.) The problem is, for Swartz this is only a mental understanding. And he has twisted it, deliberately.
The now elderly man who can appear so grandfatherly and wise in fact laughs at people who have consciences or morals. He feels no sense of responsibility for anything he does, as 'he is not real, and neither is the person he is... raping, ripping off, abusing, or lying to.'
A truly Awakened person who has worked through their "Stuff" (samskaras and vasanas) regarding "Sex, Drugs, Money, Fame, and Power" doesn't need to focus his energy on attaining any or all of these five anymore. Again, if Money comes, fine. If a person wishes to share sex with him or her, and in the moment it happens, okay. But there's no need or drive to get laid, to get rich, or to be high, powerful, or renowned.Swartz fails the test here, magnificently.
He is not a true "spiritual teacher."
What he really is has been described many times on this Forum before, and in the book, "Guru? The Story of Heather
," which is totally based on Heather's accounts of James Swartz's crimes and rapes while posing as a 'guru.' What James Swartz really is can only be described as a criminal conman and rapist.
How can any person go to this foul parody of a spiritual teacher and take him seriously?
In fact, most persons on "the spiritual path" have been fooled at one time or another. Almost every man or woman has crossed paths, and for a while tried to walk with, a "guru" who turned out to be only half-baked.
Usually, the worse that happens is they need some re-learning with a better teacher, and their pocketbooks are quite a bit lighter, when they leave the bad one as compared to when they came in.
James Swartz is worse than that, though. He's been diagnosed as being a Psychopath, a Sociopath, and a Narcissist. Based on the evidence and accounts posted here, he could well be all three (or is that even possible?).
Beware, good persons. There are better teachers-- real ones -- out there.
Avoid the Hell that is James Swartz. (You can see his real nature in his eyes.
He can't hide it. Watch him when he thinks noone is looking. Is there any compassion in that person? Really?) Ask him about his mistranslations of "The Bhagavad Gita" or "Did you really poison a dog to death in India?" Watch, and listen.
Watch, listen, and then leave...
