Re: Chris Butler, Jagad Guru, Science of Identity

Fohr, in the past years I have realized that sticking to just one path is not the way to fully grow.
I feel as though bhakti yoga is kind of a lala land illusion that protects us from the outside world.
They tell you never to look at anything else. Not to google butler…
So basically if you are in the cult and never google butler, you will think till the end that he is the pure and only Rep. of krishna.
It is a nice sweet illusory world of fantastic stories, being around semi decent people, one appearance day after the other.
Unfortunately reality is quite ugly and evil is out there big time. We just close our eyes and think that Karma will take care of it all.
And we try to bring others into that fantasy world we cocreate together.
It could be a nice fabricated reality if all devotees came with no baggage and if there was not so much fear involved.
Sadly the level of fear that is injected into devotees (as well as countless vaccines) makes that lala land even more scary than the “material world” they avoid so badly.
On the other side of fear, one can relate to any deity or divinity in a differnt way.
Relationships are unique and the group setting kills that uniqueness, raw and organic connection.
People approach deities like a beggar. And we are trained to be feel defficient. Service and the mantras become like the spiritual food that you die without.
And truly an addiction as strong as crack.
This is why many put up with abuse, same way an addict is ready to go to prison, steal , kill to get their fix.
The brain does get addicted to that transcendental high.
The greatest fear is to be cut off from getting the nectar. As I said it before they see guru as the only dealer on the planet who can facilitate the “nectar for which we are all ANXIOUS”.
Most religions do not encourage you to do the inner work because if you do, you would attain more self sufficiency.
Relating to deities on a level of “I do not need your love” is very different than crawling on the floor and kissing the feet of guru.
I have literally fought demons and gods in this lifetime. And my greatest goal is not to attain spiritual perfection but to overcome fear.
One must jump over 10000000 million obstacle in order not to fall into the many traps that separate us from our potential.
And how twisted to be forced to love god and others unconditionally while we load ourselves.
guru is the third wheel that is absolutley not needed at one point.
They are more an empediment than anything else.
Getting out there, going down the rabbit hole, finding out terrible truths is scary.
But without experiencing everything, one cannot extract only what serves them.
They must accept the bible, koran, gita… to be the absolute.
Take the good with the bad and stay stuck.
If being bliss heads is what works for some. Be it.
When gorwn ass men look up to guru for instructions, they are still babies.
And if guru is polluted, he pollutes everybody. We have all catered to the craziness of one man or decades. And called it spiritual life.
One must take their guru pacifier out of their mouth and stand on their own feet.
Before we go help others, we must first know who we are, how this reality, the psyche operates.
Bhakti yoga is a piece of the puzzle imho and far from being the whole puzzle.
I honestly wish I did not have to be involved in this mess, but we can no longer allow abuse to be a norm.
It is no pleasure to be the SoI garbage cleaner, risking getting sued or killed.
However this crap has lasted way too long.
Each and everyone of us, no matter which Sangha we come from, should actively expose the non sense. This way we will protect at least a few soul.
We once thought we were saving souls. Now we must protect them.
