It was nice of you Sahara71 to leave out the part where he calls Mooji's feet hairy monkey paws.. That sounds racist to me. He also compares Mooji to Bob Marley (because he's also a Jamaican with dreadlocks?). Reminds me of the "coreism" guy who said in his video that Mooji should stop the guru-thing and do his reggae-thing or something (because he's a Jamaican with dread

The Guardian has published a full length feature story on a New Age guru named Benhinho Massaro. Massaro has had massive success via his online videos. Persons affected by Moo videos may find this interesting reading. Here is an example: QuoteLukas Jansen (a pseudonym) stumbled upon Bentinho’s YouTube videos when he was 25, living at his parents’ house recovering from a period of heavy drin

To bring my remarks back into context, I was replying to: Quotefacet No, it’s around the 20 mins in mark mentioning ego and then pertaining to the egoless state becoming a unified field. I’ve heard a few heralding this it is kind of a theme, Eckhart Tolle immediately springs to mind. The thing for me is that ego activity or not, we are all a unified field anyway, like it or not.

I can certainly see where you (facet and sig) are coming from wrt the red flags. Interesting to note that Shunya is a trained hypnotherapist and does indeed often speak in a hypnotic way. This leaves listeners more open to suggestion, and when in this state they get told about a coming end of the world, this is problematic. On the other hand, the state of the world and where it's heading

There was this interesting comment from below Rob's video: "every time I think of Mooji I see those pictures his sangha was adding on facebook(they are never honest or truthful, they only PLAY with you, triger you, they only want to find your weaknesses and play on them.

Check out the thread: Byron Katie (the Work) and Eckhart Tolle Legit?? Be Scofield wrote another excellent article exposing a spiritual fraud. She wrote a balanced report. This is thorough and comprehensive report. Be's article: What I find interesting is how so many of these fraudulent "teachers" use reverse psycho babble, NLP, mumbo jumbo to control people. Isabell

AS REQUESTED The Moderator of this site gave two strong requests yesterday that if people wanted to talk about Be Scofield, then please devote a topic to her. Don't use the "James Swartz -- What Is The Truth?" topic for another purpose, was the message. Okay. Here's the topic.

Be Scofield has been doing one helluva job exposing the dark side of the guru business/Enlightement Industry. Which would piss off a lot of people. Anything that smears Be Scofield needs careful investigation -- all of us would want that if anyone were to do the same to us. When discussing how Moo influences people, many of us found it very helpful to read analyses of conversational tr

Warnings Received and Heard -- Thank You First, many thanks to Valma, Sahara71, and Corboy for the above posts. Perhaps I should have been more clear. As of this moment, I've made no decision regarding Be Scofield as related to the rape charges or the "Hostile Sociopath" diagnosis. I've also called her "rant" sent to the Culture or Cult folks "alle

Thanks, Sahara71, for checking the Culture or Cult website more closely. Now, as you know, the big question is, assuming that the founder(s) of this website are really after Be Scofield as a primary, or actual sole, "target," is what he/she/they have to say accurate? Is/are he/she/they correct in what they write about Be Scofield, or not? --Is Be Scofield guilty of, as a male,

Here is an interesting video from Tony- this time for "Guru Purnima" - the special day set aside each year to celebrate con-artists, charlatans and God-botherers. First off, Tony says a lot of the usual stuff. It's incredibly boring, actually. At 10.30 things start to get interesting when Tony gives us a very long list of gurus that he admires.

hello all, I've been reading this thread with interest. I never wholeheartedly fell down the moo-hole but I did meet him and go to a retreat in London. There were many red flags for me but still I went along with it, mostly because I was quite vulnerable at the time. His staff were the biggest red flag. They all seemed dissociated and not happy people. I couldn't understand the need

Holy Mother Mary!!! That is just freaking scary, luckychrmm. I can just imagine the poor little school kids who may actually be subject to real abuse (as statistically, child abuse is a very common fact) being taught to say to themselves "I feel really unsafe, but that is only a thought." What is the world coming to? I despair.

A bit more about the misconceptions that Eckhart Tolle spreads: Tolle used to suffer from severe anxiety and depression. One day he had a moment of especially deep crisis. He was ready to end his life. He kept thinking (I'm paraphrasing): "I can't live with myself anymore." But then, he suddenly wondered: "Who is this self that can't live with myself? Do I have tw

Hi Ime223, You are good as you are. Smoking or not, you're good. "Having an ego" or not, you're good. And everyone has an ego. Even Eckhart Tolle has an ego. He still responds to his name. He still knows in which body's mouth he needs to put the food he eats. He may have had a shift of perspective that allows him to recognize that he is not only the body-mind, but that

At the end of high school i started smoking and drinking alcohol and went into slight depression.

Very constructive criticism of Mooji’s Is-ness or E. Tolle’s present moment in video: Ego’s Game - What Eckhart Tolle & Mooji Won't Tell You :) What was said at 44:0-45:10 in this video is the truth for me, it’s also basic stuff for everybody who may be on a spiritual path: to shape your ego/conditioning, work on yourself and simultaneously be present/conscious, and meditate, get into
