Thank you so much for posting something about Jill Bolte Taylor.
A friend sent me a link to her Oprah appearance and I felt so sickened by yet another snake oil sales pitch. Which I used to be such a sucker for. Arghhh. How wonderful that I can spot the bullshit quickly now, having gotten quite an education here in this forum.
I listened to Taylor's entire appearance, all four parts (how I got through it, I dunno), and she actually boils her message of finding inner peace down to this: "It's only a thought away." Oh sure, it's that simple. Been there, tried that. Life ain't that simple.
I'm soooo glad for this forum!
Nice magazine cover, Anticult, LOL!
Just found an interesting web page about Oprah's new friend-to-be, Jill Bolte Taylor.
Sad thing is, Jill's experiences are going to be used by Oprah and the other woo-sters to reinforce their belief system. And it's all based on inaccuracy. <sigh> The first time I read about Jill, my first thought was, "Yes, but her brain was DAMAGED. This is not universal or spiritual truth or enlightenment, these sensations and her experiences were the result of neurological DAMAGE."
Check out the link, it's interesting and there are other links there as well. :-) Like this one:
