Would you be willing to post this latest thing I wrote?
Dear Traveller, Earthquake, ZizIz and others on this thread, I would like to respond to some of the ideas that have come up…
Please know that I do not have a problem or dispute Advaita Vedanta…not in the least. I have a problem with what (in the words of Earthquake) JS has done with Advaita Vedanta in the form of spiritual bypassing.g
I think that Advaita Vedanta, as well as other spiritual traditions, has so much practical wisdom and can, in a positive and constructive way, facilitate empowerment for self and others.
But that is not what JS has to offer. He offers nothing but destruction. He does not give, he takes.
Swartz is nothing but a common thief and conman. The only skill he truly has is to fool and trick people…and steal what is theirs, and not his to take.
When I knew him, I was a young teenager. I was easy to fool and trick, especially because I had problems at home…and I was in search of something better…I was in search of God…a better life…a family I could trust. Too bad I fell into the path of Swartz…my tough luck. He presented as a spiritual leader…a father figure…someone I could trust.
What he stole from me and “Sandy” was our youthful energy…our creativity…our sexual energy…our trust…our love…and when he got “Sandy” working full time in the stripping industry…he essentially stole her money too.
Now some people reading this might think that what I’m writing below is too flakey—new agey—woo-woo…so I ask you to think of it in terms of metaphor…what I’m about to describe can be understood concrete or symbolic terms:
Swartz sexually abused me…and in doing so, he took “energy” from my sacral energy center and distorted the flow of energy there…it was essentially a sucker-punch to my power center too…the power center, located above the root and sacral centers, is like the sun…it is a person’s place of power…and Swartz (aka Rama at that time) took my power…he stole it. Rama used to tell us…that where ever we were in the world…it wouldn’t matter how far the distance…we could call his name “Rama”…and he would be there for us…he basically implanted the idea that he was everywhere…he could always see us, where ever we were. (This implanted thought-reform idea has haunted me over the years…and been a source of much paranoia and fear for me.) “Ram” by the way…is the seed sound for the 3rd energy center…which is the place of power for the embodied person. Do you see how he continues to steal my “energy” after all these long years? Once the natural flow of energy, through the centers and up the spine, has been injured and misdirected…it takes a lot of work to get things working properly again. The energy is meant to go through the center…up to the throat (for expressing and creating), and then eventually up to the energy centers in the brain…where at last, one can awaken into the knowledge of our ever-loving God.
I am finally on to this…and with the help of my loving family, I am getting my personal energy to flow the way it was designed to…and Swartz cannot steal from me anymore.
JS is not only deceptive, he is cruel, unloving, totally selfish, and maniacal. In my view…he is a psychopath.
He is a conman and a thief. He should not be trusted.
I wonder if people examine very closely their relationship with Swartz…what is he stealing? What are we giving away unknowingly?
We should not be lambs to this wolf.
