Its sad for Stuart Resnick, as here is a guy who has been making internet posts around this subject since before 1996, and he is making that kind of ridiculous statement?
Instead of just promoting a non-dual belief system, people need to step back and look at it from a meta-level, of what the person controlling the system is DOING to the subject, without the subjects awareness. Who is creating the system?
Sadly, most disciples just fall into "the system" and just think about themselves, their feelings, the Guru, the philosophy. Me Me Me.
They need to step outside of the entire thing, and look carefully at what the Guru is DOING TO them. Often its the complete opposite of what they are saying.
This way, you see the dozens of bald-faced lies they may be telling you.
Weirdly, there was some old Usenet discussions about this similar subject with Stuart Resnick, back in 1997 with the Siddha Yoga cult.
What about the dozens of lies at the core of the Byron Katie system?
What about money sloshing around to Amsterdam and beyond?
What about the late-nite hypno-robbery "gifts" in cash and valuables?
Isn't Byron Katie just another alternate format of a Siddha Yoga type cult, but westernized?

Certainly, any nastiness that occurs within Christianity, etc, ought to
be exposed in exactly the same way.
The only difference: when we see, for instance, Catholic priests
molesting children, one could reasonably say, "These are flawed people,
but their mistakes shouldn't reflect on the value of Catholic doctrine."
But in Siddha Yoga, the guru herself is at the center of the practices &
beliefs. So once one sees the guru's flaws, there's nothing left of the
(I supposed if you discovered that *Jesus* had a Swiss bank account...
that would be a parallel.)
Oh. Well that's just sad.
