Here is how it works: You talk with a true expression - one offered by The One through such authentic non-teachers who have no students as John Wheeler, Bob Adamson, Gilbert Schult
z, and John Greven. They point out the obviousness that YOU ARE and all that any book or so-called sage has EVER said is THAT is Being and THAT is inescapably what you are. And it is rigorously reaffirmed that every human IS already THAT. There is only THAT.
** I’d be careful about including Gilbert Shultz in the same sentence as Bob Adamson and John Wheeler. He seems to share the same passive/aggressive personality disorder as Charlie Hayes. Both ‘talk the talk’ but quickly result to personal abuse if their inconsistent statements are questioned. Both are shameless self promoters but Gilbert Shultz appears to be much worse in this respect.
He puts up his own Y-Tube videos, has various blogs, websites and e-books. What disturbed me was when I saw him attacking Charlie Hayes for doing exactly what he does himself. On the site:
Gilbert talks and contradicts himself on a number of occasions. When a person who knows him from Bob Adamson’s meetings points this out, he also resorts to personal insults rather than just clarifying things like Bob does.
Quote- “My personal point of view, for what it is worth…..” To toss up Charlie Hayes as an example of someone clear is absurd. He has so many props, like Ramana or whoever…he keeps changing his favourite guru week by week. He gets pissed off and runs from one ‘post’ to another like a dog marking his territory. The list of his favorite teachers is a mile long and almost everything he says is second hand, from either Bob Adamson, John Wheeler, Ramana, Nisargadatta, Liquorman and dozens of other ‘teachers’mething.” One always gets the idea that he is selling something. – Gilbert Shultz
In his description of Charlie Hayes he could well be describing himself. On his site he even reviews and praises his own books. Yet he is sniping at Charlie. All he is doing is revealing he has learnt nothing from Bob Adamson. Both Bob and John never indulge in this type of ugly personal sniping. His ‘Urban Guru Cafe’ website has 100 podcasts from various gurus alone. He also seems to have an obsession with his own image as many of his publications have him pictured wearing dark sun glasses or strumming a guitar.
Quote- “Quite a few have reported that it is the best book they have read on Non Duality. There is no nonsense to believe in it. It strips away all the spiritual nonsense that becomes such a trap for so many.” – Gilbert Shultz
On the above site he makes some absurd statements showing the cuddly Grandfather persona he uses while giving his talks hides a more sinister side.
Quote- “Almost all the gurus are charlatans” – Gilbert Shultz
So what he is saying is awareness is a charlatan as according to him everything is awareness, one without a second wasn’t it Gilbert? So who is standing outside of awareness seeing the charlatans? Pious egoist Gilbert? He cannot see how stupid his own words are. In one sweeping statement he has judged all spiritual teachers.
Quote- “The one who is free does not care” – Gilbert Shultz
For someone who doesn’t care he seem to care more than most, people have asked about his contradictions but instead of clarifying them he wants the last word and it is laced with personal put downs. Not free from the need to save face it seems.
Quote- “Nisargadatta was a simple man and had no airs about who he was. He did not tolerate kindergarten spiritual seekers who wasted time on trivial questions.” –Gilbert Shultz
How does he know? He never met him. So the man who rants that everything is a concept has created a very good one himself. What a concept! ‘Kindergarten spiritual seekers,’ as opposed to what Gilbert? ‘University graduate’ ones like yourself? What blatant hypocrisy. How would he know who Nisargadatta tolerated?
Quote- “I would rather sit and chat to ordinary folks who have not even heard of Non Duality than most of the crowd that are drawn to it.” – Gilbert Shultz
I guess that’s why he has countless books, websites and blogs where he spends an endless amount of time in meaningless conversations with his followers.
Quote- “it is kind of pathetic how superficial most folks are when it comes to understanding who or what they are.” – Gilbert Shultz
Now this is just the worst condescending statement I think I’ve ever heard. He’s now moved to insulting most of mankind. The kind of statement I’d expect from Jim Jones, David Koresh or some other psychopathic cult leader.
Quote- “Bob encourages dialog and lets everyone have their say. Many times folk just sit there, apparently not willing to ask any questions or say anything.”-Gilbert Shultz
Perhaps they’re just worried about being called ‘pathetic’ and ‘superficial’ by Gilbert……..??
I've saved the best for last.
Quote- “It is only a ME that can be offended, angry or sad. Folks just don’t get that.” – Gilbert Shultz
Yes Gilbert, we’re all so pathetic, superficial and just don’t get it. I’ll tell you something. Whatever you think you’ve got, I don’t want.
