just think, that guy who posted a while back, RandomStu, he is a Zen teacher? Zen of what? The Zen of taking drugs, gambling, and following a greedy Zen Master who was a sexual abuser and should have been 'defrocked' and kicked out on his ass? The Zen of deception, lying and cult apologia?
Ah, RandomStu. Just last night I was re-reading a second blog entry on Byron Katie by Guruphiliac, Byron Katie Poisoned By Success?
, and in the comments section, there was good ol' Stuart, once again voicing support of BK (on 4/18/08):
When we're infants, we have only one way to learn: imitation. Those of us mature enough to read this blog are no longer infants. We can still benefit from learning... but we can move beyond imitation.
Byron Katie had some sort of special experience, and was able to articulate it in a way that some people find useful. That's all good. We simply need to avoid considering her infallible (like we automatically viewed our God-like parents when we were infants).
We can take whatever's useful from The Work and other teachings and teachers, and ultimately make it our own, without imitating or following anyone.
Sounds so reasonable, doesn't it? Except it completely skirts the issue of all the devious mind-control methods BK is employing.
