Ranters, here's your chance to vent

If you hate my Church of the Churchless blog, or want to insult me (Brian Hines), here's your chance!

I've started this anti-blog so rabid haters of Church of the Churchless will have a place to post their rantings. That way they won't clog up the coherent (or semi-coherent) comment conversations
we have over on my churchless blog.

This probably will be the only post on I Hate Church of the Churchless! The rest of the content will be provided by ranters in the form of comments to this post.

I'll start off the fun by copying in some comments that I've gotten from "yliadin" and "Ashy," who almost certainly are the same person: Ashy Heller, a Radha Soami Satsang Beas initiate from Cape Town, South Africa.

He loves to insult me and disparage churchless discussions that question religious dogmatism. As a writer, I have to admire Ashy's colorful insulting language (though he can get more than a little repetitious).

I haven't posted all of his rantings that got deleted from Church of the Churchless comments, but you'll find a good sampling below. Feel free to add your own.

Be creative! Dig deep into your profanity vocabulary! Find fresh ways of expressing your hatred of the Church of the Churchless and me.

Venting is good for the soul. This could be your means of spiritual uplift! Click on the "__ Comments" link below to add your rant.

    Howdy George I can't stay

    let us see if these indoctrinated guru bashing pricks got the balls for the war they started, I somehow doubt it very much.

    Thing is the beauty of the exercise is so basically simple, no amount of indoctrinated egotist warfare will secure their emancipation from its chains of delusion, this is something Life and Love itself is going to have to teach them, not I nor they can do it for themselves, the strange thing about it is this, the very source of the misinformed agenda based hatred they harbor is going to teach them the lesson, the very thing they despise with all of their arrogant intoxicated indoctrinated might is the power and force that is going to turn them around, and then these deluded 'I am my own universe' protagonists are going to be crying like little babies when the penny does drop and the veil of disillusioned illusion is lifted from their crass encrusted arrogant ego filled self indoctrinated eyes.
    ---------------------

    Hey Brian

    When are you going to live up to your so called churchlessness, bunch of two bit two faced frauds.

    I'm looking for this non fundamentalist, non dogmatic, non bile spewing rhetoric, and non underhanded disinformation that you supposed to be the champion of, yet you so freely allow the rank and file antithesis free reign by some of your self indoctrinated, underhand, disillusioned, deluded, non free thinkers on here.

    I am challenging you to let this war of attrition rip through this place unencumbered, c'mon be a big boy now and not the chicken shit coward that you and some of your so called free thinking deluded punk ass ex disciples pretend to be.

    I'm challenging you to show your non denominational churchless free thought principles to get as good as some of your punk ass ego rife indoctrinated pricks like to give on here.

    You reckon you have anything fundamentally sound going here, wrong you are, you got a bunch of disillusioned abysmally self indoctrinated bile spewing underhanded vipers, spitting poisonous misinformation as some rank crass underhand agenda because they, like you, have not the balls nor the humility nor the basic spiritual insight or openness to appreciate or understand truth from where it emanates.

    Purely because you have become so far removed from it by means of your highly indoctrinated ego fed intellectual incapacity you allow the blind arrogant punk ass venomous vipers free reign to spit and spew their misinformed disinformation bile without censure, yet those who you punk ass pricks like to gang up on, those with some sincere inherent clarity of vision and purity, you freely allow your scum indoctrinated junkie groupies in here to run rough shod over unencumbered.

    C'mon let the war of attrition suffice, let your ill begotten sons of malformed bile get their just deserts, you allow them freedom of indoctrinated agenda filled arrogant egocentric venomous bile, then allow the other, c'mon be bigger than you are, I dare you to be brave for once in your life.

    You the author of Life is Fair, let the equal equivalent of misinformed arrogant indoctrination be handled and tackled square on. Let them stand and deliver against the barrage of the repercussion to their toxic waste filth. I'll take these punk ass prick disciples of yours down with the very same venom and hatred they spew out in all of their malfunctioning egotist arrogance.

    I'm willing to take a little side bet over here, you ain't got the balls for it, you going to chicken out just like you did all along, all your life, you going to chicken out again. You won't allow the same latitude to the other free thinkers in the circumference, yet you will harbor and cajole and encourage the garbage crass crap sick fundamentalist filth to continue here unabated.

    You two bit, two faced, two timing, chicken shit fraudulent liar that you are.

    C'mon I dare you to take this challenge of ideological warfare on, its you punk ass crass disinformation garbage protagonists that spew it out with all your filthy venom you can muster, now get it back, with interest, I dare you, I challenge you, I encourage you to be a man for once and let this cookie crumble, let the games begin.

    C'mon free thinking icon, be the free thinking churchless self aspiring indoctrinated gurus that you and tAo and tucson and Juan like to think you punk ass pricks are.

    I dare you to leave this post up, but I know already right here in my gut, you garbage spewing junkie deluded pricks don't have the gumption nor the balls for it, I know by morning it will be gone.

    Too bad for y'all cause it was the one possible opportunity for you to start to realize exactly what kind of garbage you indoctrinated fools are harboring and aspiring to over here. Too bad for you, some other opportunity is going to have to smack you punks square in the face and get you to catch a mighty about turn non indoctrinated open minded wake up call.
    ---------------------
    these neurotic neuroscientific existentialist nothing seekers are so stuck inside their self proclaimed nowhere neurosis they cannot see the end of their noses, let alone any wood for any trees.

    Good God almighty what a superfluous exercise in absolutely nonentity nothingness, going about convincing themselves they don't exist.

    Empty clanging vessels making a whole lot of fuss and bother racket about absolutely bugger all nothing whatsoever.
    --------------------
    Hell hath no fury like a disciple scorned by his own minds lack of humility or love

    poor sad sack loveless creature

    its been a long, long time coming
    gonna be a long, long time gone.

    but you know the darkest hour is always just before the dawn.
    ---------------------
    All talk is a whole lot of cockamamie bullshit at the best of times

    wanna go round and round in circles keep on talking, and worse still believe all the cockamamie bull you talk yourself into

    Just a whole heap of garbage really all this highfalutin horn blowing about sweet f'all.

    Saints aren't into talk like these rigmarole horn blowers round here are, they into the real McCoy, none of this highfalutin heap of cockamamie cock n bull story doing the rounds round here.
    -------------------
    Tongue in cheek sarcasm might not be all that far from the truth, careful it don't sneak up on you and bite your illustrious delusional highfalutin ass.
    -------------------
    Not only are this lot a bunch of pseudo backtrack fraudulent rats but worst of the lot of it is that they too damn chicken to face the music when its turned up a notch.

    I've never witnessed such cowardice in all of my life, this place supposed to be a haven for all free thinkers and the minute you get somebody challenging their holy f'ng indoctrination they run like the two bit chicken shit cowards they are and opt for the ban button.

    Two bit fraudulent Scheisters thats all they are in here, no other term or word can possibly describe this highfalutin bunch of fraudulent prats.
    --------------------
    So you finally decided you are not big enough for the ask

    Got to put it to you I kind of knew it all along you just a coward, not a real participator in truth seeking at all.

    Thats exactly why you ditched your sojourn to perfection, except its plain to see, even your own skepticism will not outlast the pure lure of true spiritual yearning, in spite of yourself you will be brought to the realization, once all this song and dance about your own importance gets washed down the toilet, you will come to realize exactly what you haven't had the courage to face in all your 30 odd years of self righteous indiscipline.
    --------------------
    Some these people need a scape goat for their own inadequacy.

    They look for a reason to remove the focal point from their own shortcoming and this is why they look outside of themselves for stupid vague reasons for others to assume or believe them to be evolved or enlightened.

    They are none of the sort, they haven't even begun to tread their path, that is ANY path whatsoever, you can call it whatever name you damn wish to call it, it bears absolutely no significance on the fact that unless you get your mind at rest, that is turned inward from its debilitating fluctuating exasperated state of sense driven dissipation, and bring it to a focal point of concentration and fix it in a higher vibrational mode of elevation, you can talk and think and delude yourself till the cows come home, but you ain't been anywhere nor done anything of any significant spiritual evaluation whatsoever.

    They just love to idolize and drown in ideology about this path or that, but they have lost the simple focus of wtf its all about, they trying to bang on their own exalted egocentric drum about how important their ideology or self centered purpose for their feeble existence is when all they should be doing is trying to get past their own big toe and elevate their own impure consciousness off from the very floor of their grandiose state of illusion.

    So over here its about who is who in which zoo, not about getting the hell off your indoctrinated self righteous fallacious floor of zero aspirated consciousness. They look to knit pick and find fault in every possible avenue out there instead of fixing their own blinded gaze on the very thing that needs absolute attention, their very own emaciated poor forlorn and debilitated lack of spiritual evolution.

    Like a bunch of slaves stuck in a cage all pointing out how feeble the free men of the world are when they are stuck like rats in hole of self righteousness and delusion.
    -----------------
    I said my pieces now

    I sure hope you leave them up for all to see what a sham bunch of indoctrinated illusory infatuation is the order of the day around here

    Anybody looking for Truth, this ain't the place to find it

    So long.

    [Oh, Ashy, this comment of yours preceded all the others. Guess you loved to hate the Church of the Churchless so much, you couldn't stay away. I think someone actually is attracted to churchlessness and isn't willing to admit it yet. -- Brian]

  2. Got some fresh comment hate mail from Ashy today. He hasn't learned how to post his rants directly on this blog, so my compassionate Buddha-nature is leading me to help him out. Here's the new offerings on the I Hate Church of the Churchless! front.
    -----------------------
    F'ng cowards, thats what you fuckers are, the bunch of you, I see you wiped my 3 blogs clear on the other thread huh Brian, even though they were too damn close to the Life is Fair truth for your chicken shit cowardly liking, you underhand little smug faced prick, you and your snotty little coward punk groupie tAo over here.
    -----------------------
    Yeah you f'ng feeble freak, you chickened out again you underhand second grade fraudulent swine.
    -----------------------
    No thanks I prefer to continue my rants right here where it matters, right here on the I hate the RSSB gurus and all their fundamentalist disciples blog, this is the venue where it cuts, or should cut both ways, how many more blogs you like to start, why don't you chicken shit cowards, you and tAo and all your other little happy clappy delinquent fundamentalists stand and deliver your anti sentiments right here like you been doing all along and get your just deserts right smack bang where you been asking for them.

    Unless you still too feeble chicken to get as good as you give, you underhand smug faced rank cowardly nest of venomous back biting vipers.
    ----------------------
    Yeah one thing you got right you cowardly underhand self righteous arrogance induced indoctrinated rat is that Life is in fact Fair, so fair it is that you get all your garbage filled rotten skunk arrogance back in full force, maybe even with some interest attached.
    ---------------------
    You can't handle criticism so you pull your little chicken shit stunt and pretend its because you want to keep your sanctimonious little happy clappy back slapping mutually indoctrinated society antithesis club going over here, meanwhile back at the ranch the only reason you spread these fictitious self righteous sanctimonious lies about me or RSSB or anyone that don't suck up to your rank arrogant infantile ego ridden delinquency, is because your puny little dogma ridden fundamentalist ego simply cannot handle the challenge, you run, duck and hide like the chicken shit coward you have always been, and continue to be, even up to this fine day.

    Put that in your sanctimonious garbage ridden smug faced pipe and smoke on it hard.
    ----------------------
    [I think the last line is my favorite, from a Rant literary standpoint. The imagery is good, a "smug faced pipe." Otherwise, I'd say that the stream of consciousness insults seem a bit excessively emotional. Blending in some philosophical profanity would raise the Rant Level Quality up a notch or two. Keep at it, Ashy. Practice makes perfect.]

  3. To Ashy

    You're an extreme asshole. There is no doubt about that. You think and speak like a crass foul 'mlecha' who belongs in the sewer.

    You are also a hypocrite and a fraud, because no genuine initiated RS satsangi would ever stoop to speak and behave towards other spiritual seekers and/or satsangis, as you have done here.

    ReplyDelete
  4. Anonymous, it is indeed interesting that Ashy, who tirelessly advocates for Sant Mat fundamentalism (Radha Soami Satsang Beas version) is so hateful in preaching his "path of love." Seemingly this paradox would be apparent to him. But I guess not.

    If I was trying to get people to adopt my religious or spiritual path, I'd want to show them how it has made me a better person. Yet Ashy is demonstrating that many years of Sant Mat meditation and other spiritual practices do one thing, at least: produce a prodigious capacity for profanity, insults, and hate speech.

    Here's his newest offerings to the I Hate Church of the Churchless! collection plate, which I received today:
    ----------------------
    Brian you talk crap

    just get out of your indoctrinated arrogant egotistic crap hole and get real

    before you find out when its a little too late..fool.

    These two faced punks over here talk a whole lotta garbage crass crap and they go ahead and believe it, each and every one of the snob nosed little underhand creeps like this f'ckadilly fool tAo and his schmuckaby baby cohort tucson led by the snot nosed asshole delinquent chicken shit creep of the triumvirate Brian, the snake in the grass rat that cannot stomach some straight out critique yet he spews his ego fed crass rife dogma willy nilly and allows others the same latitude long as it gets regurgitated and approved by the snot nosed delinquency status quo if and whereby it bolsters their own falsified notions that they are ratified in their 'up their own backside' delusional grandeur thinking.

    Punks of a garbage feather flocking together like the underhand indoctrinated fraudulent rattle snake punk ass vipers they are.

  5. Ooh, ooh, the hatred keeps on getting better. I just got an email from Ashy! I've always wanted to feel like a celebrity and have a stalker. Now I've got one. Just via the Internet, but, hey, better than nothing. It feeds my ego (assuming I still have one) that someone is so obsessed like little old me. Here's Ashy's latest rant:
    ---------------------
    Fuck you Brian, you are the crass bigoted narrow minded self indoctrinated rotten scoundrel fundamentalist dogma spewing preacher over here, not Harinder.

    Who the fuck do you think you are, you underhanded piece of sanctimonious rotten arrogant punk ass snake in the grass creep. You are the one putting out this indoctrinated garbage that you are so capable of pulling your soul up by your very own ego rampant aggrandizement bootstraps when in the clear light of day you are so fundamentally self induced deluded by your crass over inflated garbage fed ego that you don't even have the beginning of the clue.

    You are so hopelessly up the creek of your rank and file over ridden godforsaken deluded junk filled arrogance without a paddle you don't even have one iota of understanding notwithstanding that you willy nilly procrastinated on your over inflated ego filled backside for a good 30 odd years of half hearted ego ridden self centered delusion of grandeur escapism, yet never even once touched the beginning of the core of the exercise.

    The only one here parading around pretending to know anything substantial is you fuckadilly creeps, like yourself and your punk ass little fuckwit fool ass creeping disciples tAo goon and tucson goon along with a couple other intellectually indoctrinated fools who don't have even a vague idea of a clue about where the hell it all begins and ends.

    Rank indoctrinated self centered bunch of discriminatory asshole delinquent bigoted fools, who need a good f'ng smack right where it matters between your self induced deluded intoxicated ego infatuated self aggrandized eyes.
    ---------------------------
    [I'm getting tired of his repetitiousness. And my compassionate Buddha nature, which has been copying his rants onto this I Hate Church of the Churchless! blog, has its limits.

    So Ashy, unless I change my mind you're going to have to learn how to post your hating comments here. I've been pleased to offer you a forum to insult me and my churchless blog, but you can't rely entirely on my grace. Remember: effort is needed also -- in ranting as well as spiritual practice.]

  6. Go to hell punk ass, you the schmuck that hasn't heard a thing in over 30 odd years, not those who you preach your garbage ridden bunch of sanctimonious trash too

    Your rank crass holier than thou egotism knows no bounds, this is precisely why the likes of you and your snot nosed little underhand up the ass creep disciples live in this delusional state of up your own backside sanctimony and disillusion with yourselves.

    You do not have the balls for truth, never have and never will, that is why you cajole and reciprocate your stench up each others sanctimonious backsides day in and day out on your bile filled indoctrinated website which you even have the gall to refer to as anti fundamentalist, while the real fact of the matter is that it is only you punk eyed bunch of creeps who are in any way fundamentally fucked through your own aggrandized versions of your own fundamentally skewed misinformed disinformation spewing crass garbage via your arrogance laden snot nosed intellects.

    What is more you are a scumbag little coward, who hides behind this sanctimonious arrogance pretending to be who you're not when back at the ranch you don't have what it takes to see the reality for what it is.

    No way will a stupid lecture like this one here do you any good, the real lesson is baring down on you as we speak, and be assured, as true as I'm telling you right here, right now, your arrogance is staring its comeuppance square in the face, before too long you going to get the lesson of your snot nosed upperty hoity toity aggrandized little delusional life.

    Mark my words.

  7. And lets get one thing straight

    this has absolutely nothing to do with RSSB vs you bunch of delinquent rubbish churchless fuckadilly fool punk asses

    No self respecting spiritual seeker would stoop to these levels in taking you aggrandized schmuck ass pontificated pricks on as I am doing here, it would be to their correct minds an exercise in absolute futility, a pure waste of valuable resources, both spiritual and mundane to attempt to get you scumbags to see any wood for any trees.

    This is purely between me, myself and I, and you, that is my ego, vs yours.

    The spiritual Guru's have rightly admonished intellectual ego rife wrangling across the internet of this nature, and for very sound spiritual reasons.

    So get it absolutely straight, I do not represent RSSB here, I represent my own fallible individual ego standing square on in antagonistic defiance against your rank crass aggrandized holier than thou punk ass sanctimony.

    This has absolutely zero to do with RSSB or its representation, this is solely between me and you, capiche.

  8. To the mentally disturbed person who calls himself Ashy:

    A. If you are really an RS satsangi, you should be terribly ashamed of yourself for behaving in such a sick, low-life and despicable manner towards other fellow spiritual aspirants and human beings.

    B. You may try to say that you do not represent the RSSB, but your behavior does indeed reflect very poorly upon both the RSSB and Sant Mat.

    C. The manner in which other people conduct their own personal spiritual practices and paths is absolutely none of your business.

    D. The opinions and subject matter that other people (like Brian) express and write about on their own personal Blogs is none of your business to deprecate in such a foul and baseless manner.

    E. The opinions and the manner in which other people may choose to regard or judge various spiritual teachers (including RS 'masters') is also none of your business.

    F. Last but not least, you are clearly very angry and disturbed - no doubt a mentally and emotionally ill individual. You really ought to go seek some professional mental health and psychiatric help. The ugly manner and fanatical degree that you express yourself, indicates that you do have some serious mental and emotional problems.

  11. Brian knows as does his spiritual Master exactly what cuts where and how deep

    He may deny the truth till all eternity, don't for a second diminish it one iota.

    If he's looking to ratify and endorse his own lack of insight or lack of capacity for truth or for love by way of getting other disillusioned seekers who could likewise not appreciate nor experience the depths of the teachings that they could not follow out of their own baseless intellectual preconditioning to bolster his fallacy, then it is only his inability and his fundamental flaw, who the hell are they to deny and discredit truth because they are incapacitated to recognize it.

    Notwithstanding all my admonishments and harsh criticism of these anti truth seekers the fact of the matter is that santmat most definitely does not need a puny insignificant individual such as myself to try stand up and defend it, it stands perfectly capable and sufficient in ts own perfection and capacity by its own principles and experiences, by those who follow its teachings accurately and to the true depths of its core and appreciable understanding.

    The fact that some seed falls on rocky or infertile ground and others are fortunate enough to take root without as much consternation as those who have this rank indoctrinated arrogance and intellect to deal with, is simply the way the karmic cookie crumbles, and anonymous is quite correct in this regard, it is actually none of my business whether they need to rat and snake their underhanded way around a system they decry purely because they themselves are so emphatically unfit for its lofty teachings and ideals.

    1. Hey Ashy,

      Well, I am few years late on this, and am trying to read comment by comment.

      (Trying - as there is a lot written._

      From Sant Mat perspective. I had posted this on the Church... blog as well, that what ever brain and gang who say they dont follow sant mat are doing is - simran.

      god does not say only praise me, he says ' remember me'

      sakhi (story) : disciples went to their guru and said there are few who praise you but there are many who also talk ill of you.

      saint said. i am fine with those who praise, i am also fine with those who criticize, i am worried about those who dont do either :)

  14. Ashy,

    Dude you are providing the perfect example of the fundamentalist Indoctrinated mindset. Without self-knowledge of living up to the examples and precepts of the path of the masters, you castigate those of differing opinions.

    I HAVE walked the talk. I do come from practice and personal experience. I've had the sound for as long as I can remember. I've 'risen' above body consciousness. I've had the 'spiritual' experiences.

    Your picking out Brian and others who have walked away from 'the path' is nothing more then a personal vendetta.

    You don't like it that they have challenged the path....What makes it worse for you is that they are doing this from personal experience. They aren't outsiders...but former practioners who found reason to question.

    This must make it extremely hard for you if you want to believe the path is correct even if you aren't able to practice and live up to its precepts. Perhaps you want to think...'hey its true and if I was actually able to do what it said I would be happy and at peace.'

    Now, having said that... I will say that the path HAS helped some people find purpose and peace of mind....but so have many other paths and religions. And in fairly similar ways and for similar reasons.

    I didn't find Sant mat as dangerous as many fundamentalist church's and groups. (at least the sant mat I was associated with) We were a peaceful non-invasive group trying to live what we thought was the spiritual life. But then you have to take into account the Thakar Singhs, the succession disputes... and the whole diatribe against thinking and the mind. You see the incredible susceptability for misuse and abuse that is INDOCTRINATED into the follower.

    There is room for much improvement in 'the path of the masters'.

    A True 'Science' of the soul... MUST be open to all questioning and critique... ALWAYS. If it gives that up even for a second then it ceases to be a science and becomes a dogma.

    You can't bash down all critiques and questions.... That kind of activity is only going to cause MORE critiques and questions.. not less. You aren't a soldier fighting the good fight in the cause of Sant Mat.

    YOu are playing the game ... and instead of making the points you WISH to make... you are making the points of those you oppose... FOR THEM.

    Kinda like Michael Martin (a disciple of Charan Singh who claims to be the Sat guru for the western world) does..... If you get my drift.

    It may make you feel good to bash away at those who question the path......but basically all you are saying is that you are angry at those who would question the path. HO HUM... Join the club of billions who don't like it when their religion or faith is questioned.

    The path itself is quilty of bashing other religions and belief systems (almost every religion and belief system if quilty of this).... as ineffective and inferior, dangerous and delusional. Do you have anything to say about 'the path's' treatment of these other belief sytems?

    Nice to make your acquaintance

    I don't think you quite get the picture of what exactly is going down around here, this war of attrition between me and some these hoity toity, aristocrat, non free thinking illusionists who somehow need to bolster their emphatic delusional states of disillusionment by waging a war of misinformed disinformation on everything they like to discredit and gang up on, like the prissy little coward underhand delinquents they are, should be put in perspective.

    Firstly let me make it quite clear, I take this stand purely out of my own volition and from my own volatile non enlightened position, I do not take this stand as a member or representative of any organization or spiritual or religious group in this situation whatsoever.

    Any upstanding sincere and spiritually inclined true seeker after truth would not be partaking in such dire crass outright dogmatic war of words with a bunch of scoundrel underhand pitiful snakes in the grass disillusioned ex disciples.

    My antagonism towards these underhand junkie jerk freaks, for want of a better description, is in direct and consequential reaction to their rank outright egotist laden high handed filthy fictitious lies that they feel they can freely disseminate across cyberspace at will.

    Well due to their rank cowardly inability to deal with me in open forum discussion, they have now tried to resort to castigating and creating a pariah type of insinuation where I become the fundamentalist outcast and this little prissy bunch of deluded schmuck ass snot nosed creeps think they somehow smell of roses.

    My sole and only purpose in continuing this incessant war of wills and egos against this deluded bunch of prats is to show up the utter fake and phony deluded state of so called superior high ground 'rationalized free thinking understanding' that they try and clamor to usurp.

    Due to my absolutely not buying hook line and sinker into their baseless heap of deluded indoctrinated arrogant trash, they close ranks and use the scapegoat antic and try make a pariah Judas out of somebody they simply have not the balls nor gumption to deal with face to face.

    A truly enlightened teacher or even an advanced disciple would never get embroiled in such a baseless bunch of useless reactionary war of words and ideology with such arrogance indoctrinated fools, but would rather steer the thinking towards more lofty principles, ideals and considerations.

    However my response and reaction to this very insignificant bunch of fools is meted exactly square on in direct antithesis to their own inane harbinger style of underhanded dogmatic rhetoric that is so freely allowed unencumbered free to air baseless disinformation and blazoned across their so called 'free thinking' churchless website.

    This is the background to this little spat of highfalutin war of words over here.

    Now to get down to the endemic disorder.

    What you have over here, if you care to study the psychology of the make up of this tiny infantile collection of 'chip on the shoulder' disillusioned illusionists, is a very small core group (maybe 3 or 4 highly frustrated ex spiritual seekers) who for want of some sincere downright humility and clarity of vision came up against their own encrusted lack, their own debauched and fragmented rank rife arrogant egotism in themselves, and in so doing made an about turn in their quest and as is so fundamentally common in your fast food junkie Americanized way of doing things, started biting the very hand that fed their souls growth from inception.

    I find the rank debauched arrogance induced false self aggrandizement which seems to me to be so fundamentally rife in your holier than thou, over educated, highly intellectually indoctrinated American society, actually a pitiful state of absolute self idolizing deceptive insanity, this is why you get so many of you intellectually indoctrinated creeps setting themselves up as some kind of pastor or spiritual leaders or Guru's in their own right over there. Just exactly as Brian Hines has set himself up as some free thinking churchless pastor or preacher over here.

    They have not even begun on the true quest or true path to understanding, or to freeing their thinking, their encrusted egotist blinded delusion so shrouds any form of clarity of thought or clarity of vision that they now purport to exacerbate the very core of spirituality to the point of vague baseless feeble insane useless nothingness, or in their terminology, no-thing-ness, same bunch of hogwash bullshit, just another depraved idiotic way of putting it.

    So the crux of the issue, if there is a crux at all, is simply that I abhor rank outright debauched arrogant egotism, and when I see it in all its naked indoctrinated aristocratic highfalutin aggrandized debauchery, I let fly with as much if not more volatile aggression towards that very source of the aggression which is their own insane depraved blinded arrogance that is portrayed and blazoned in absolute unashamed hypocritical falsity.

    Perhaps you catch my drift hereby, perhaps you don't. Perhaps some these underhanded over aggrandized creeps get to see just a little bit about themselves and exactly what it is they portray and what they are championing and standing for over here, and then again, perhaps they don't.

  16. Not-so-anonymous Wes, good points. Like you said, every time Ashy launches into a hate-filled profane rant, it makes a churchless point:: fundamentalism breeds anger, judgmentalism, and closed-mindedness.

  19. Dear Ashy,

    Good to make your aquaintence as well.

    I really don't see this the way you do here. What it looks like to me is a LOT of projection of motives without any evidence to back that up.

    Please be specific as to the exact "... rank outright egotist laden high handed filthy fictitious lies" they are saying.

    I mean this is a lot a adjectives all stacked together.... I think it takes away from your points when you go that far.

    "What you have over here, if you care to study the psychology of the make up of this tiny infantile collection of 'chip on the shoulder' disillusioned illusionists, is a very small core group (maybe 3 or 4 highly frustrated ex spiritual seekers) who for want of some sincere downright humility and clarity of vision came up against their own encrusted lack, their own debauched and fragmented rank rife arrogant egotism in themselves, and in so doing made an about turn in their quest and as is so fundamentally common in your fast food junkie Americanized way of doing things, started biting the very hand that fed their souls growth from inception."

    From what authority can you possible make the above statement? You've already admitted that you aren't enlightened.. yet this very paragraph claims enlightened knowledge. How could you possibly know what specifically feeds anyone souls... or even whether anyone has a soul or not for that matter?

    It sounds like you are railing against your own 'projected' motives for these individuals. How can you be so sure that this is the case for these people and not something else?

    I know from my own experience that questions arise, that we can move away from prior beliefs as we learn more. There's nothing necessarily egotistical in that.

    Everyone can use a good ego-check periodically. My wife gives me one on an almost continuous basis..LOL

  27. Yeah, I know...I said I wasn't going to post any more of Ashy's comments -- the South African initiate of Radha Soami Satsang Beas who loves to leave insulting rants on my blog, showing how much good his "spiritual disciplines" have done him. But today's rant deserves to be placed on I Hate Church of the Churchless. I liked how Ashy adopts the Christian fear of God, and practices his "Path of Love" with such hate. Here's his latest rant:
    -------------------
    Typical how Brian the great sage of churchlesness will honor and cajole and invoke the glorious sanctimony of his right hand punk the prick of all pricks, tAo the bleating little sheep, as his effervescent mouthpiece, yet in all of his critical, skeptical, 'free thinking', analysis, he will bow to the paranoia, and fear ridden lack that pervades and cripples any hope of any freedom of thought that is actually the dogmatic fundamentalist bullshit that encapsulates the foundation of this hickey little cluster of lost sad farts, and emanates throughout the crippled debilitated minds of this paranoid bunkum believing circus crowd of phony false freaks that call themselves the 'Cult of Churchlesness'.

    No sad hope for you poor sorry sad sods whatsoever, that is until the Guru that took you under his wing for reasons only he knows takes pity on your lost deluded debilitated souls, and sets you free from all this procrastinating, analytical, mind crippling, paranoid, clap trap skepticism that holds you clasped fast in its iron like vice grip of disillusioned, denying delusion.

    Your unfree soul awaits that day of emancipated liberation in eager anticipation, lets hope its not too far off.

    Is there anything more to you besides one gigantic smelly asshole? I mean, even your head and face has been completely swallowed up by your asshole. Its incredible! You really belong in a circus freak-show. You are by far the biggest asshole in the entire RS circus.

    Your asshole is even bigger than your guru's used toilet-paper turban. Its so big that the RSSB had to permanently divert the Beass river just to adequately flush your toilet. The Indian Army had to put up huge protective barricades in case you farted during satsang.

    Your asshole is so incredibly large that I understand that the master has actually decided to hold all his satsangs and darshans inside of your colon. His GIHF dais and throne will be specially constructed out of your huge dried and pressed turds which are then fashionably stiched and glued together with George's heavy-gauge shaved pubic hairs and hundreds of buckets of sweat from over-worked sevadars.

  30. So this is your free thinking champion right here Brian Hines, this the epitome of your 'churchless free thought enlightenment' right here above.

    These are the kind of dumb ass fool delinquents you surround yourself with as your brothers in arms in your quest for unadulterated truth, right here on your churchless irreverence blog.

    This is the kind of idiot who reveres himself to be holier than holy, more enlightened than those who teach real honest to goodness truth.

    These are the kind of punk eyed ego riddled impostors that Brian Hines likes to call his friends. I guess like attracts like in the end.

    And you wonder why I see right through your false, self seeking, self idolizing, ego riddled ideological clap trap garbage heap that you so fondly cling to as your haven for rational 'free' thought.

    You are so far removed from anything 'free' it is not even a joke anymore, you have a severe malady running through your self righteous intoxicated brains, the both of you, maybe the entire self idolizing, arrogance deluded, truth maligning lot of you, and it shows, all over your self righteous, sanctimonious blog of yours.

    This malady, this disease you call free thinking is in fact your grossly obsessed self esteem arrogance that is so emphatically steeped in its own self righteous importance you have not an iota, a minute whisker of a clue about anything truthful or free or real or enlightening at all, whatsoever.

    You Brian, and your indoctrinated little dumb ass self idolizing groupie cohort disciples are so emphatically distant from anything remotely aligned to truth or freedom of thought or uplifted consciousness, it is not even vaguely associated with anywhere near here, quite emphatically in the opposite direction from truth is this place, this I have to sincerely inform you.

    These principles you champion are just too far removed from any of your cockeyed attributes, you are riddled with blighted arrogance to the extent that your inept disciples mirror your very ideals you cherish, and this post above here is the perfect example of the type lost deluded disciples and indoctrinated groupies you have sucking up to your infatuated high opinion of yourselves.

    I have no need to say much more on the subject.

    I came to this blog site thinking there were some sincere seekers after truth resident hereabouts. After the trash and inconsequential garbage I have read and witnessed getting thrashed about in the name of unbiased free thinking, I am sorry to inform you that not a one of you have anything valuable to impart at all. I honestly suggest you should be categorically and exceptionally ashamed of yourselves, you and your self indoctrinated groupie disciples, each and every last self righteous, self seeking, deluded one of you.

  34. That is correct I am no satsangi, I am manmukh like all other hissing snake manmukh that come together and spit poison on internet blog site, I too am manmukh hissing snake that bare fangs to bite and spit poison.

    So if all the manmukh hissing snake in internet basket want to bite and spit poison, we all manmukh spit together, bare fangs and bite together, then we see which manmukh hissing snake poison is stronger than the next in the end.

    At end of all hissing and spitting poison, Guru will cut head off anyway, no problem, let him cut, it is better to be without manmukh hissing snake head than to spit poison like all manmukh hissing snake do on this website day in and day out.

    So I hiss and spit same poison they spit till they learn to stop biting, Guru can cut my head anytime he like.

    Brian, Love your site and the topics you freely share.

    To Ashy: Wow! You have one foul mouth spewing forth venom and negativity like none I've ever heard by someone claiming to be a "devotee" of "Truth, Love, and Peace." Can you spell "hate/anger is a passion of the mind."

    I think they have special rooms in hospitals for people like you...and they also provide special clothing and meds for wackos like you.

    Reading your rants is enough to stop a person from EVEN wanting to read ONE book by RSSB, let alone give the organization or your guru any serious consideration as a spiritual path of enlightenment or truth.

    If you are any indication of what ex-satsangis of RSSB are subjected to...well, you are really a sicko! And you only reinforce the righteousness in them leaving the group!

    Brian, I haven't joined the Churchless group discussions, but I read your posts frequently, and thoroughly enjoy the freedom of viewpoints expressed and explored on Churchless.

    It's refreshing to not be bogged down with the dogmatic bullcrap that seems to go along with the GIHF paths in the world. I used to be a member of such a group. HAPPY to be Free and Churchless!

    You say Brian is not the enemy, enemy of what of who, of himself, of me, or of you?

    You say such despicable acts of cowardly hypocrisy is not the act of a delusional mind, then what is?

    You see, or you fail, or prefer not to see the lengths to which such degenerative deceiving cowardly acts and words and thoughts that these with ulterior denigrating disinformation agendas expound, to attempt to deny, decry, defy and detestify any validity, and authenticity of a truth that they in all their debilitating egocentric self infused blindness fail to see, is neither the enemy nor the paranoid blind men in their falsified bluff leading the blind, then what is?

    Yes the MIND is the enemy, these hifaluting indoctrinated fools, are in fact the agents, the concubines, the diabolically infused and engulfed disciples of this MIND, themselves.

    They have no eyes with which to see with, nor ears by which to hear with, nor any sight or rationality by which to 'know' with, yet they decry truth, life, understanding, like vultures on the wing circling the carcass of their dead forlorn hopeless state of decaying decrepit egocentric dispicable diseminating lie, this ego mind, this self deluded intoxicated desease riddled malaise of conditioned blindness, as their god of reason, their false idol of self centered falsity, as the lenses of their self delusionary infatuated false perception.

    And yet they purport to 'know' any thing, what a fragmented disjointed debilitated joke is this so called 'free knowledge' they expound.

    Not even by a whisker of their puffed up arrogant pride do they happen to 'know' any simple little thing at all.

    In fact quite the opposite is their absolute degenerative lack of any 'knowledge' or understanding. These deluded self righteous fraudulent imposters are the epitome of any knowledge whatsoever, these fools are the mentally debilitated practitioners of the ravaged antics of their self deluded feeble falsified indoctrinated minds.

    Not an iota of clarity is reached in these halls of intellectual antithesis to knowing or understanding, not even a meagre morsel of true free thinking sustainance is achieved through the dire debilitating antics of the arrogantly debauched self righteous mind that parades around these toxically infested corridors of so called 'free thinking'.

    If you see any 'free thought' parading anywhere around here, then I am afraid I would have to attest that any who purport to see any such 'freedom of thought' or 'expression of truth' or knowledge or understanding in such aggrandized ravaged halls of iniquitous vainglory, are unfortunately themselves the slaves and absolutely conditioned disciples of this godforsaken deluded self centered intoxicated insidious MIND.

    1. I love the response to the rope analogy, it reiterates the point of the story that you question the gift of the rope. As a member of AA, I can tell you that the great gift that people speak of is peace of mind. Where ever you receive that peace, you should hold onto it. Even if it is arguing on a blog or questioning a religion. If a spiritual leader is truly spiritual they won't be affected by questions or ridicule. There was a story about a man who came out every day to yell and curse at a holy man. The disciple asked the holy man why he allowed the man to speak to him that way and insult him. The holy man replied that he was honored by the man's devotion, every day without fail he comes out to greet me with insults, but every day he thinks of me. He never misses an opportunity. So the devotion to this anti-rssb blog is still an amazing amount of devotion. If your peace of mind comes from a religion more power to you, and if your peace of mind comes from the beauty in nature, again more power to you. I am a firm believer in the idea that anything that divides people is the creation of man and anything that comes from god will bring us together. Good luck to everyone that reads this!

  47. Hey anonymous of Nov 18 11.03, how you doing tAo?
    Your style is as unique as Ashy's response.
    Byt tAo, you should learn the value of an analogy, it really will help your understanding of some texts. You see, an analogy allows you to substitute objects that you are not familiar with objects with which you are familiar, like say a rope for attachment. Its really quite simple, and with time, you will get the hang of it Practice and you will find that it will so help your understanding of so many explanations which must currently be a complete mystery to you. It may prevent you getting so worked up and maybe, this little explanation may even prevent you having a heart attack one day. So calm down and learn some basics about analogies, you might even enjoy.

  49. As so often happens, my comments are not being treated at face value, instead, some evil purpose is being assumed. This is not the case.

    In time of grief, we experience a pain that is not normally experienced, it is a deep rooted and powerful feeling, one that disrupts our every action, one that overpowers our senses, and one that even time has difficulty in diluting.

    So, as part of human experience, is there absolutely no interest in this group in discussing and exploring this experience?

    Words of condolence do little towards understanding grief, although I am interested to know if they reduce the level of pain through their expression.

    As a real observable and common experience of life, is there no value in asking and investigating this experience? How would science explain this experience? How does religion explain it?
    Sant Mat uses the image of attachment, like a delicate rope, it has now been broken, and the pain of the break causes the experience of grief.

    Science may talk of brain and memory, of synapses and electrochemical reactions, but I posit that science has a long way to go to explain the deep felt feeling of loss.

    Then logic could be used as a tool, logically the dead no longer exist, this is born out by observation, and often used as an argument against spiritualism, no evidence of life after death! So we do not feel sad for the person who no longer exists, so what is this feeling from a logical perspective? I suggest it it selfishness, for it is not a feeling of compassion or sorrow for anyone else but oneself.

    But perhaps this is a taboo subject, because it is Brian who is feeling this pain, and not some other person?

    if anyone wants to discuss this and Brian feels it is not a topic he wants discussed on his main blog, then lets discuss here
    Any ideas most welcome

  50. I am again giving up ( I come back because the only value that I find are the links to other articles that Brian digs up from time to time),

    I had thought that his blog might have attracted a few interesting and open people, but while there are some who do 'get it' they are not too willing to contribute.

    Brian is as closed an individual as one is likely to find anywhere. He lives in such a closed in world that he will never be able to hold a creative or intelligent conversation ( again, his posts prove his total lack of understanding of the written word, he believes what he wants to believe, regardless of the wording in front of him).

    The moment a comment becomes too threatening he simple deletes, so he can play God in his little world. For those who want this, then of course they have the freedom of choice. Plenty of people do not wish to shatter their illusions, especially of themselves.

    This blog is a bit sad, but it is representative of the way most people think, they are closed and conditioned in their thinking, but seem to feel they are open. No wonder it is so often said that this world is nothing but an illusion.
    I have read your posts and I understand that you are only trying to push the boundaries of thought. Brian makes his so utterly stupid remarks that you are a science basher, when your questions hold the most profound elements of scientific enquiry, you are wasting your time with Brian, he is totally unable to see outside of the box he has made for himself.
    My advise, for what its worth, is to not try to lead the blind when they do not want to be led.
    Cheers

  54. I'm amazed at the energy you wa-hoos have expended in jousting with your egos, it's also too bad you couldn't expend the same energy in doing your meditation which would completely take such needs away from you. Oh well,if not this lifetime, maybe the next?

  55. Dear Ashy,

    Please continue posting or stop if it suits you. although I find your profanity profane, I do not find your rants rantful. Your unelightened view of enlightenment is really quite enlightening in an unelightened way. I like how you highlight the lowlights of indictrinated indoctrination and how the dumbass crap Tao fools float down the creek without paddles like the fuckpigs that you are - even though I hate it. Awesome!

    Shame you are not real. I would have liked to have not met you and not spent some time talking to you without saying a word - from fuckpig to fuckpig and punk eyed ego riddled impostor to punk eyed ego riddled impostor.

    Say hi to Brian when you see him in the mirror this morning or afternoon or never. And don't forget to call him the cowardly coward egoistic ego-eyed punkfuck that he is.

    (By the way, I'm not anonymous. Anonymous is an asshole or a hole in the ass or both or none or neither dumbass punk eye.)

    Sit silently intent on silence and humble yourself to the great silence.
    Fart freely if you must-but do not lose the centredness.
    Rant not loud negation but silently say a prayer of love in meditation.
    Know we are nothing.
    Know we are complete oceans of god in potential.
    Know you are loved by the divine.
    Know you to be the vessel of the living shabd the immortal quintessence of Tao the kalma the irrepressible comedy of transcendent reality-
    You are gods eyes and ears his tongue his teeth -ALL is GODS
    Now cry all the tears of sadness and diseased thinking
    Let it all go -
    Silently weep the tears of time from your child self
    Fart freely if you have to-but come back to the centre of the music of the spheres.
    Meditate on this great truth
    this feeling of lightness
    this awareness of freedom
    Within your closed eyes is the mansions of the father
    Within your still body and mind is the grand terminus

  59. Here's some comments that I've gotten from Harinder Jadwani:
    -----------------
    I posted on this site [Church of the Churchless] a year or so ago, Brian, and then stopped out of exhaustion at the emptiness, ignorance and endless griping of your followers about the supposed shortcomings of Sant Mat. Rather than address the inexhaustible snipes and gripes of you and your cult - the BRIAN HINES CULT – which you now openly admit is the object of your abject admiration and concern, if your numerous websites did not already serve as advertisements to your vanity), let me just comment on one of your genuine grievances – the ongoing ‘no-show’ of the internal Master.

    So long as you prattle on about the shortcomings of RSSB, so long as you insult and dishonour the Masters, so long as you swim in the Ocean of your own Vanity, there will never be a show. You do not deserve it, you are not worthy, and you will never be showered with such Grace. All this is well understood by true followers of not only Sant Mat, but any scriptural teaching. Jesus wrote: ‘For whosoever exalts himself, will be Humbled.’

    But this has not stopped legions of Bible-thumpers declaring themselves ‘saved’ because they ‘believe’ in Jesus (never mind his teachings, of course), and threatening non-believers with hell; nor did it stop ‘Christians’ from hating their Jewish neighbours, murdering millions of native Americans and stealing their continent, enslaving millions of Africans, or colonizing tens of millions of other peoples. Ravana is another classic example of someone who was peerless in his learning and intellectual skills, but who could not overcome the flaws of his nature, and was therefore destroyed. All the sophisticated arguments, logic and quotes from educated fools like Hitchens and Dawkins (who, Inshallah, one day I will rebut) only serve to augment your Vanity, and keep you from the simple but quintessential truth that on this path (the path of spirituality) there is one quintessential requisite –humility, without which all the meditation, all the seva is rendered worthless.

    Your years of ‘meditation’(I wonder what you were really meditating on because you never developed inner love, patience, or humility) , ‘seva’ (tainted by your greed for the reward of such seva) were wasted, as were Ravana’s learning of the Vedas. Nothing went in. In Godfather III, a Vatican bishop says: ‘for centuries in Europe, man has been surrounded by Christ, but Christ has not penetrated’. That in a nutshell, is your condition. You were ‘surrounded’by Sant Mat, but Sant Mat did not penetrate, because your undying Vanity, greed for the reward for your efforts, did not allow it to . Prat on with your grievances, griping, proofs of the shortcomings of the RSSB Masters – it matters not a whit to Them, but it will matter to you, in the fullness of time, in which your karma will bear fruit.

    Keep on griping about the no-show, and gloss over your failings, example, unilaterally breaking the promises you made, example by eating egg-whites and drinking alcohol. Your actions will lead you to the place you deserve to go, as it will for the followers of YOUR CULT. Shortcomings in satsangis may well exist – that’s why they are on the path – to improve themselves. But because you or your followers have seen ‘fake humility’ in some satsangis, that does not absolve you of the need to develop it yourself; no more than you would be excused in a court of law for a crime you committed, simply because others had also committed it. Your current ‘philosophy’(though you don’t really understand the meaning of the word) seems to be to live in the moment. That is the reality for you. It will end sooner than you think. Then you will face another reality..... which may be unpalatable.

      This is just a BIG SHOW for BRIAN, trust me when I tell you this. Brian has had inner visions and LOVES Sant Mat.

  60. More from Harinder Jadwani:

    ---------------------

    A final comment. There will always be disgruntled ones in any organization, and perhaps always a Judas for a Jesus, but there are tens, if not hundreds, of thousands of seekers in Sant Mat, for whom it has been an ongoing source of inspiration, grace, joy and mystical benefit; but you and the followers of your cult seem destined to never enjoy such ethereal things. And you do have a point.

    If you did not experience such things even if your own lack of humility stopped you, it seems reasonable to deny such things could exist. After all, a blind person who has never seen light is justified in arguing it could not possibly exist. That incidentally is in a nutshell the case of Hitchens and Dawkins; but they too, are following their own karma, their own destiny, the script the Unseen Power has written for them, though they know it not.

  64. Hi Brian,

    I'm a 20 year old who was nearly brainwashed by the RSSB thing...I read "Path of the Masters", "Science of the Soul", etc, and was considering becoming an initiate, until I read your blog. I had no idea that the 'light and sound' were lies manufactured by the cult. Anyway, I had reservations about the system since day 1 because worshipping a master and traveling through various planes sounded pretty unrealistic. thanks for providing perspective

  66. It must be kept in mind by exsatsangis
    they are dealing with people in a horrible
    cult. People with temporary insanity.

    Hard logic and erudite facts scare satsangis.

    It makes them afraid to come here.

    Until Satsangis fears are released by
    kindness, no logic will ever work.

    Look at these poor satsangis. Just
    look at these poor fellows. What living
    hell they must be in.

    We must remember satsangis are are brothers
    and accept their slings and arrows in order
    to help them.

    Can we hate insane people ?

    Were we not insane once ourselves ?

    We must address their fears with kindness
    and friendship.

    We must give them a glass of warm milk
    with some cookies. We must pat them on
    the head and kiss them on the cheek.

    The satsangi doesn't know it, but the exsatsangi is the best friend they will ever have.

    We are the only ones whom can help them in
    their hour of need.

  68. Dear Sir, You went to India for seeking peace and truth. But came with demon possessed of Indian idols. Anyway, one day you were born as human being and one day you are going to die. This is the only Truth in human life. From the beginning of this world men tried to know about life and death. But no one ever satisfy accept Jesus Christ. If Jesus died and rose again from the Death then this is true solution of men. If not, then there is no God, not spirituality or life after death. Think about this, all your Gurus born and died. But Jesus born, died and resurrected from death. Do you not think that this is the only
    hope that one day every man can resurrect as Jesus as son of Man died and resurrected ? If Jesus never died and rose again then all true follower of Jesus are fool and wasting their time on God and Jesus. But if it is true then whole world of non believer of Jesus are fool and dying in their sin. So I am giving you some thought of your life after death. By the way, Hindus believe in recarnation means after your death you may born in family of animal, bird, or fishes. Do you really believe this ? If yes, can you proof any man who died in India as Hindu walking around you as dog, monkey or pig ? You are blindly following behind some thing which does not exist. Jesus never came to rule over this earth, or stablished any religion. But He came to solve the three major of problem of human life.
    1. SIN
    2. DEATH
    3. SALVATION (Life after death)
    Friend what more you need in your life. No religion, guru, leader, Muhammad, Buddha ever promised to give Salvation. No one ever died for human being and Rose again from death. They just came and gave their ideas, lived for them self and died for ever more. No hope, no promise, no peace, no joy and not life at all. Still are going to continue your hopeless life around your Gurus and Idols. Think about this and choose Life, not death. Be wise man.

Be kind to Jehovah's Witnesses - many are too afraid to look further - for fear of being disfellowshipped. And be honest - they did teach you something - a hunger for TRUTH, courage to break away, fearlessness of men and more. I am a disfellowshipped witness and i appreciate the Truth that the witnesses taught me. Well done for answering the call to become a "thinking man" - enjoy the journey and remember the people you left behind...

His approach is always coming from love and compassion for ourselves and all others. I hope you re-discover that some day.

  86. Mr. Hines,
    I've been a satsangi for about 20 years, and I've read all your articles. Buddha said, "The very purpose of religion is to control yourself, not to criticize others." No one in RSSB has ever asked me to donate money. I even stayed at the Dera for a month and no one asked me for one penny. If its true that Baba Ji made his sons wealthy, then good for them. I wish my father would have made me wealthy! If a spiritual leader from America, say Joel Osteen for example, has stocks, wealth, and investments, which he does, its considered normal and OK. But if an Indian spiritual leader has some money, investments and helps his children with money, then everyone is ready to condemn him. Its not fair, and it shows that you have double standards. The Master shows us the path of meditation, Sant Mat, but we need to make the effort and meditate. I'm happy and grateful that Baba Ji has stood up and taken on the mantle of Guru for all these years. He initiated me and I'm grateful for that. He basically gave up his life and his freedom to travel all around the world to help people. To my knowledge, he only gives. Actually, your website has helped me to become a stronger Satsangi and I wanted to thank for that. It hasn't hurt my faith in my Guru at all. Radha Soami!

    1. Really?
      I've read through most of the comments that Brian has made on the RSSB. As a newbee....i'm confused more than ever and need lots of questions answered before i decide my path,
      (1) Why does the RSSB not have a website?
      2) Why can't photos be taken of the guru or recording of his satsangs?
      3) Have all the gurus REALLY come from the same family line?
      4) I thought the guru's sons were doctors who reside in London? Are they not? Do they really own shares in a company that is owned by the Guru's nephew?
      5) If it is a spritual movement and not a religious sect then why is there a process called naamdan and the words come from the Guru Granth Sahib? Isn't that the holy books for the Sikhs? And if naamdan were to occur for a Hindu or a Christian, would a hindu stop saying their mantras,eg. Om Namah Shivya? or a Christian stop praying' Our Father Who Art in Heaven'?


      And Brian,
      Why exactly were you fired from the RSSB?
      Did you not give the RSSB permission to quote material from your books? If you did, doesnt that show that you believed in their beliefs?
      As far as if heard, isn't the Dera a place where langar is free of charge? the prices for goods and services is below or just cost price?
      By the way is the current Guru a Sikh?(from his appearance i would say so) if yes, has he had his amrit?
      And in the Sikh religion it states that the last Guru is the Guru Granth Sahaib. If the current RSSB Guru is a sikh and gives the initiation words (naamdan) from the Guru Granth Sahaib, how can he be following his religion, if his religion clearly states that the last guru is the Guru Granth Sahib.

      These questions are not meant to be disrespectful or to hurt the sentiments of anyone. It is for my knowledge so i can decide the right path for myself.

    3. @ anonymous :

      trying to answer your questions

      1. rssb has a web site
      2. all the pervious masters allowed to take pics and record satsangs. but in todays age, idol worship etc takes the ultimate form. guru does not want him to be worshiped in the physical form of pictures etc, so perhaps he is encouraging the satsangi to go within.
      3. no - all guru's are not from same family line. before charan singh maharaj were jagat singh ji. but there is a mystical reason why after that family line is on. there are many other rssb (true and perfect living masters) that came upon after sawan shah, they are not from the same family line. lord presents himself in form of saints as and when necessary, so dont be surprised if a PLM comes upon in japan or australia or africa. its all His will.
      5. this is a long answer. will try to keep it short. guru granth sahib is guru nanak and rest of the master teaching, like kuran is mohammad, or same as teachings of tulsi das, kabir das, paltu sahib etc. the message is same (does not matter sikh or hindu) - its that the sound current is coming from almighty and we need to go within and catch it. ALL religions and their books talk of the same. guru granth sahib talks it very specifically hence its been read a lot in satsangs. but so are verses of bible, kuran etc. common factor being, the word, naam or shabad will take you back and that can only be given by a perfect living master. worshiping him after he has gone brings no result.

      answers to your questions posed to brian

      - no one gets fired from rssb, brian just gave up the path himself
      - dera is a place where people come to learn the teachins of sant mat, and yes the free food given is called langar. accomodation is free too.
      - guru's religion does not matter. he teaches no matter what religion you are in, continue that and go within and you shall find the lord.

      you have asked many questions but in no way were disrespectful :)

  89. I've read through most of the comments that Brian has made on the RSSB. As a newbee....i'm confused more than ever and need lots of questions answered before i decide my path,
    (1) Why does the RSSB not have a website?
    2) Why can't photos be taken of the guru or recording of his satsangs?
    3) Have all the gurus REALLY come from the same family line?
    4) I thought the guru's sons were doctors who reside in London? Are they not? Do they really own shares in a company that is owned by the Guru's nephew?
    5) If it is a spritual movement and not a religious sect then why is there a process called naamdan and the words come from the Guru Granth Sahib? Isn't that the holy books for the Sikhs? And if naamdan were to occur for a Hindu or a Christian, would a hindu stop saying their mantras,eg. Om Namah Shivya? or a Christian stop praying' Our Father Who Art in Heaven'?


    And Brian,
    Why exactly were you fired from the RSSB?
    Did you not give the RSSB permission to quote material from your books? If you did, doesnt that show that you believed in their beliefs?
    As far as if heard, isn't the Dera a place where langar is free of charge? the prices for goods and services is below or just cost price?
    By the way is the current Guru a Sikh?(from his appearance i would say so) if yes, has he had his amrit?
    And in the Sikh religion it states that the last Guru is the Guru Granth Sahaib. If the current RSSB Guru is a sikh and gives the initiation words (naamdan) from the Guru Granth Sahaib, how can he be following his religion, if his religion clearly states that the last guru is the Guru Granth Sahib.

    These questions are not meant to be disrespectful or to hurt the sentiments of anyone. It is for my knowledge so i can decide the right path for myself.

    1. As far as know, Babaji strictly wanted there to be no online site for Santmat as he didn't want people to post things on internet as you know how that would turn out.
      Also, the mind is a very strong enemy so don't think that once disciples will always stay disciples. As long as you don't experience something, you will never build true love or faith.
      Being a sikh does not mean that you have to have your amrit.
      The Guru Granth sahib being the last guru is just as a guide, we are supposed to follow what the Granth sahib says and inside it says to find a true Guru who can show us the way.

  92. even jesus had 12 disciples, and the disciples regarded jesus as their guru/teacher.
    one of them betrayed jesus, yet the master jesus was all knowing and an enlightened soul. he did not change his bad fate or disown his disciple. which i think is the case of brian

    what we can learn is that this 'guru' 'teacher' has been always around and obviously god will not be unfair to send just certain saints at certain times, they are always present....

    when jesus was around, no one believed him except his 12 disciples, after he died, everyone believed him, well mostly.

    the same is with guru nanak ji, when he was around, only very few disciples believed and listened to him, yet when he left this world , he has millions of followers, if guru nanak ji was to enlighten all souls after he left this world ...then why would he leave a successor to carry on his work.... he would have said just believe and pray to me and i will save u.

    same with john the baptist. he initiated jesus, and he was the successor.

    so i think we always need a teacher, if i passed a school exam, who would i thank? the books i studied from or the school teacher that taught me from the books???
    the answer is obvious !!

    thats the same with religious books, you read it and think you know it all, but when a living guide explains it properly, then you thank the living guide for clearing your doubts and helping you.

    The individual you call "Gurinder Singh Dhillon"(for that is the only way, in which a person like you can understand the Master)is in every way, superior to you. He is worthy of your respect. Kindly refer to the teachings of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu, known as Siksastakam, to understand the correct behaviour to show any individual.

This whole church of the churchless website was purposely designed to sidetrack certain individuals from the TRUTH. This is not accident here folks. BRAVO Brian for a creating a GREAT website that's designed to keep people away from the TRUTH. Also the practice of Surat Shabd Yoga is as an ANCIENT as time itself.

    I was comatose for 29 days. My life started from the day I woke up half paralysed, which is when I didn't even know what the meaning of paralysis was. I existed outside my body. I had many, so called, spiritually amazing experiences throughout that time. And I saw the other side, where death is finality and mortality, normal... where the death angel rules.

  110. In terms of what was mentioned about krishnamurti. The very saying that the book leaves 'you' Luke warm, signifies the incapacity of the mind through thought to understand its own insufficiency. The 'you' is nothing more than a collection of memories and experiences that are in the past. In order to truly understand what krishnamurti was talking about, it takes much more than flipping through I few pages of a book and taking it apart for amusement. If one would find truth, or reality, it requires a very serious inquiry. If you can understand meditation at all, you will realize the insufficiency of thought to realize truth. Truth is the actual reality, not the 'selfs' past fragmented memories and comparisons, images, and conditioning coming to what it thinks is a conclusion. The fragmented nature of thought can not conclude the unknown. I personally will tell you that it is possible to life a life free of pain, sorrow, conflict, fear. It has taken me a great deal of inquiry into myself, as the observer is the observed, is very important. It is possible, but to be free from pain and fear, meditation is essential, a quality of mind which is not bound by the past. Good luck with it, it is well worth the time. It's been almost a year since I first came upon krishnamurti and it is freedom from the known.

  112. Hello Brian, a matter of hours ago did I learn of the radical changes that have taken place in Sant Mat from my brother, who was an initiate for 40 years. I am fully conversant with the Path, the propositions, the promises and postulates, and all the other attendant bullshit.
    I was never able to join and adopt Sant Mat as a personal belief. Mainly because I could not reconcile a couple of primary principles, the main one being the belief in predestination.
    The real student reads this, laughs, and moves on. Strangely this error in perception in some strange way does not trash the reality of the inner realms. I believe I know the exact psychedelic (spiritual drug) that led the "Masters" of this Path to conclude that all is predetermined.
    Let me give you a spiritual gem that shines brighter than all others. I give you this with love. "Every human being on this planet was/is given the priceless gift of free choice and self determination at the time that the Soul integrated with the DNA of the flesh." You see Brian, it is this fact that enables the growth and evolution of Creation. This is the wildcard in the equation of life. This is not a subject for debate or even discussion, because there is no point in thrashing the truth, the reality.
    Maybe these words will save a few people countless years of deprivation on a restrictive path that in general, does not offer even a glimpse of what they seek. I speak of Westerners - The general followers of these gurus find it a lot easier, because they cannot think. The western mind is too analytical for this Path.
    I would also like to mention a few more truths concerning sant mat. Many of the actual experiences that the Masters have shared have errors and embellishments no doubt designed to attract new members. With this kind of enterprise it's either all true, or all untrue. They bullshit with a smile because they know that the odds of any of their Western followers actually personally achieving anything, is extremely remote to zero.
    Curb your thoughts Brian, they are based on arrogance and ego. Your heart speaks the truth of what I have written.
    No, it is not ego and arrogance that has driven me to write these words. Disappointment, and perhaps a tiny bit of anger from witnessing my brothers loss of faith and the sacrifice of forty years to restrictive practices born out of a culture steeped in mysticism and a good measure of brainwashing thrown in for good measure.
    By the way - no hate here, no ego, no arrogance. Just truth, reality and humility.
    My message to you - if you get your rocks off doing what you do, go for it. There's one born every second, exploit the opportunity. But this I see, as the death of a philosophy that should never have left India.
    Best wishes for the New Year.
    Brian.

  114. I deleted the earlier comment for correcting typing errors. Here is the corrected version.

    *******

    Yes. I know that my perspective and yours could be different and you have all right to hold on to yours. However since, you have given this opportunity, let me share my views :-

    There is an inbuilt conflict in the title itself : 'Spiritual Independence' ..! If you are a disciple of any group how can you expect Independence ? Being a 'follower' itself means that one has surrendered one's independent intellect to a Master or an ideology.

    About the issue of shift in the belief of the living Master of Radhasoami (Beas), I would congratulate you that at least you have your commonsense intact to be able to catch the changes. Now coming to the point, there are certain pit falls of such groups. The selection of a successor is one such critical thing.

    If the Master is not supposed to change the tenets or its interpretations, there is no need to have a Living Master. A Change is the essence of being live. A good Master is one who will suggest adaptation with the needs of the present era. The whole cosmos is dynamic and a Master should be able to identify the needs of the change much in advance as he has power to analyze the things at subtler vibration level.

    I think, its for you to accept the change. You need to decide either to have blind faith or dynamic faith in the Master.

    I feel, you have been accustomed with the old tenets and got yourself habitual to certain notions. Now, there is a conflict.. Every change invariably brings in friction because the person once again, has to exercise to modify his comfort zone.. !!

    Anything that you repeat on continual and rigorous manner will be very close to addiction. You can fall pray to addiction of spiritual concepts and practices, too.. But you don't realize this because your Ego gets compliments for this following from the society.

    So, take this inner discomfort and repulsion in the right spirit. Know that this is wake up call from within.

    As every person is a unique bundle of Karmic dues and attitude, how can there be a single method for all to get release from this. One has to find one's own way.

    Be Blessed

  120. Hello! Sir. I visited your site and was confused. My faith was shattered. Your questions were really brainstorming. I tried to search the literature on this matter, talked to many people. It is good to ask questions. Baba ji also urges us not to follow this path blindly, we should read literature,ask questions. But we should ask for answers from God not from people. You are angry, u didnt get anything for so many years. U expected so much but u were disappointed. Its naturally. Your anger toward Radha Soami reveals that u loved him so much. So u should take time and talk personally to him. And if u r really in search of the Kingdom of Lord, u r his lost sheep then definitely he will come to take u back.
    And few days back I was also in emotional turmoil that whether I am on right path.God really answered me. I read ur comments and thought whether Baba ji is true Son of Lord sent on Earth. I also got news that Baba ji is not well and all satsang programmes are cancelled for next 3 months. And again I was doubtful and then I prayed to Lord if he is true Guru then God he will definitely be present in Satsang in Dec. The moment I finished praying my Mom called me and told that satsang programme has started again and there will be satsang in Dec. I was really happy from my heart, I was feeling better. I dont proclaim that he is the only way to reach God but in my life I have not seen any human being who is so glorious and whose presence is so peaceful and soothing...... I have not been initiated till now waiting for 1 more year when I will turn 28. Till then I am also searching so that I come into this path wholeheartedly. And I will definitely post on your site if I will be able to meet the Lord Inside...............................
    Doubt, the ruthless hunter, lurks within your body;
    His arrow has pierced the flawless diamond of your soul.
    Doubt resides within you.
    It makes you throw the dice till you lose all your wealth;
    It blindly attacks like a wounded beast, destroying one and all.

  121. Most of the negative comments published against Sant Mat are written by people who have failed to achieve success in their spiritual endeavor and therefore seek to blame the spiritual system taught rather than look at themselves honestly and accept that they are to blame for failure. Typically failure stems from the desire of the lower self with the analytical mind to understand things that can only be understood by the higher self. Accessing the higher self is extremely difficult and requires escaping from the grasp of the lower self which, being well entrenched therein, most are unwilling to do. The comment of the mantras or simran being mind numbing shows clearly the misunderstanding for it is meant to be numbing to the lower self so that one can access the higher self where understanding is achieved by direct seeing of truth rather than by the intelectual faculties of the lower self.

  122. Only the true disciple can know the greatness of the master, all the rest are guessing. There is no need for discussion and debate. He who debates doesn't know, he who knows doesn't debate. To verify the competence of the master all you have to do is meditate and go within. The radiant form of the true master will be waiting for you. You will not see a false master because has not done the meditation and can not guide you through the inner spiritual planes. There is an old saying in India: If you go to a false master you will become a false disciple. Anybody who claims to have meditated dutifully for 30 years and seen nothing is clearly as honest and honourable as the master who initiated them. If you meditate with proper disciple you will see many things, but you will not see a false master. If you let your mind wander like a drunken sailor looking for a whorehouse, you will become as frustrated as the sailor. In any case you don't have to be a true disciple to get an indication of the competence of the master. Just pay attention, do your homework, listen what he says and what he does not say. It ain't rocket science, it's common sense.

    You seem to be highly evolved to condemn others.
    So what is the way to Heaven ?
    Please share this with us.

  124. I suggest all human beings to please do not follow anyone blindly. No man can be GOD as HE does not get birth and meet death . Learn but Meditate yourself to get some personal elevating experience !

  125. Hi Brian, or should I say AGENT OF KAL (THE NEGATIVE POWER)?!?! I see Kal is up to his old tricks again, deceiving the poor jivas and keeping them stuck in the wheel of re-incarnation forever keeping them suffering and in the pain/fire of unfulfilled desires. All Master wanted was to liberate your soul so that you could be happy. Instead your next life will probably be as a DOG or maybe even a RAT as that's the level you've sunk to. You've probably gone back to your meat and wine, you drunken savage barbarian!

    Seriously though, we still love you and hope you come back home (TRUE SPIRITUAL HOME) real soon now.

  126. Hi Brian, No hatred here!!! You are entitled to your free will and points of view just as I am. You had a good post on Neil Young sometime back that got me interested in hearing Neil Young's songs more closely. I'd like to give you my point of view. Neil Young’s singing has always been a deterrent from searching for a Heart of Gold for me personally LOL! Just kidding but really I think the dude can write good song melodies, but I can never get into his singing. His song which you talked about called “When God made me" sounds like he wants to believe in a God that can be categorized “universally.” You do realize that if we are too open minded our brains will fall out! Embracing all beliefs in God cause distorted views of God in Truth. Neil’s simple lyrics that posed the questions regarding God’s motives: “Was he planning only for believers, or for those who just had faith? Did he envision all wars that were fought in his name? Did he say there was only one way to be close to him?” These are very good questions that do have answers. Answers that are the Truth! Although we would like to be gods of our own destiny by going with what we feel is true, righteous, and worthy of grace by our standards as humans, the fact of the matter is that our thoughts and motives fall short of the Truth. The Holy Bible is The Word of God that is definitely the Life giving, Heart transforming, Good News bearing Truth that gives us as people a mirror to show us what we look like and then gives us the solution to make it out of this temporal life. This answer is found only in and through the Creator of Heaven and earth who verbalizes it so that we CAN know God’s intentions for humanity. Acts 4:11-12 says: “For Jesus is the one referred to in the Scriptures, where it says, ‘The stone that you builders rejected has now become the cornerstone.’ There is salvation in no one else! God has given no other name under heaven by which we must be saved.” John 3:16 says: “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” Only God Himself could answer our questions of His motives but I believe God is direct when addressing our methods of trying to reach Him by John 14:6: Jesus answered “I am the Way and the Truth and the Life, No one comes to the Father except through me.” Sorry for the length of this reply!! My desire is only to share the Good News the Gospel of Truth in which we have imparted to us Grace in order to come the a saving knowledge of the Lord and Savior and only God: Jesus Christ!

  129. Brian, I really can't believe that you actually wrote one of the book's that were given to me at the time of initiation (LIFE IS FAIR) and now your here open with haters blog how did this ever become possible you must have had such strong love for the path and baba ji how could you let this go i'm sure there is a way for you i hate to see somone that was so devoted to the path end this way i also read that you heard the bells at the early stages of being blessed by our beloved master (but was'nt that somthing was'nt that a start for you to work towards you are very blessed to have that experience as i haven't even got to that stage beacuse i havent the time or should i say im a bit of a loser when it comes to meditation but if i had got even the sound of the bell i woould be very happy i know there is a lot more to see my mum told me there are several stages you go through while on this path as all stages come through the third eye through bhajan simeran. Brian you are still so blessed to have got that such a shame i hope baba ji brings you back you seem to have some focus on the path still but weather you like it ro not the master will bring you back you his blessed child. Radha soami...........

  130. Dear Brian,
    You think to much about what you are doing. You need to again brush up all your concepts.You have a very high barrier of ego to cross.Power comes in need not desire.For all these years you had been doing your meditation either for inner experiences or because of your emotions. you might have been practising meditation nowadays but it lacks faith.
    Things arent so easy. Thats why the guru speaks about 4 births.
    well,I suggest you read The Book Of Mirdad By Mikhail Naimy. Its a good book that would definately help you. Also it is related to Radha Soami Satsang Beas. They have its copyrights in hindi.
    thanks,

  132. Wow, just seen this site for the first time. I haven't been through every post but certainly have seen some if the exchanges between Wes and Ashy. I tend to agree with Wes in that Ashy is his own worst enemy. He/she has just swallowed a thesaurus in practically every post! No need for it as you lose the message! Why use 5 words to make a point when 30 will do eh Ashy. A little too much self aggrandising of yourself too me thinks!
    If as you say you're not purporting to be defending the faith, why are you on here?? Your arguments are baseless. If you have issue with Brian on his egotism etc then you could do thst by e mail exchange. What is the need to make your spat so public? Massaging your own ego knowing others will read your posts?
    There is no moral high ground to be taken, every faith is subject to criticism and it should be welcomed too as the Master has said on countless occasions that its a persons, journey so probe and question with all your might before settling on the path.
    "A fool speaks because he wishes to say something, a wise man speaks because he has something to say".

    Let Brian have his say, he will one day reach his final destination (even if dragged there) as the initiated will never be abandoned. You do yourself and many other truth seekers a disservice with your postings here.

  133. Is this the real life or is this just fantasy.... Easy come easy go...
    Brian you have stirred up a hornets nest here! Is there a little part of you thst feels that maybe just maybe thst it's possible that in your heart of hearts thst you are a failure? For so long you diligently followed the prescribed instructions passed onto you by your master?
    Many others have gone on to describe their inner journeys and yet you feel left behind? What's wrong with you... You are as good as anyone else.. Why haven't you made the same progress etc etc. sure,y these doubts have crossed your mind like countless other initiates right? Your frustrations have manifested themselves in a such a way that you have thrown the baby out with the bath water and everyone else in the world should now be labelled a charlatan if they profess to any spiritual experience huh? Worry not, your time will come, those true seekers will welcome you with open arms and not even contemplate responding to you with a "told you so". You will believe it for yourself when the third eye opens and you see the many mansions the Lord has residing within you. No one has the right to judge you, however expend your energies to true and just causes and try to offload your karmic debt not add to them with vile accusations

  134. What Brian has said might be right, but only for thai boxing. Yes , I speak of muay Thai. In this art, you even learn using you knees and elbows to block or break opponents. I am a orange belt at shotoku karate and beltless at muay borang(ancient form of muay thai. ).
    And I personally believe that ordinary boxers are very vulenerable infront of a skilled karateka. What defense you expect of a mygiri by a boxer ?

  137. Why be angry with Brian? If Babaji didn't want this blog to exist, it wouldn't exist. It's interesting that while Brian denounces the path, at the same time he still does regular meditation. I come here from time to time because Brian often has reliable news about Babaji, like when Babaji was sick. Thank you Brian.
    Spiritual Perspectives Volume II: Question 578, Page 432.
    "We should never loose heart when we have pitfalls or when we have fallen or think that we are being driven from the path. He never leaves us. Momentarily, we may feel that we have left the path, and at another time we may feel that we are again on the path. We explain to ourselves that have left it. Actually, we do not leave it; we cannot leave it. We are so strongly bound, so strongly got hold of, that we cannot leave it, we cannot go astray. But naturally it takes time to learn to walk and then to run. So we should try not to analyze too much. We should do our duties while living in this world, try to give our time to meditation, try to live to the best of our ability, and then slowly but surely, with the Lord's grace, we will become successful in our endeavors."

  140. Brian Thank you for your article on meditation. I find meditaion hard but without it, I don't have amazing OBE's that come at random times. It's like you need to fill up the spiritual gas tank to trigger them. Those OBEs made me realize that Drugs,Sex and Rock n Roll are just attempts to recreate what we feel when we were in the other worlds. One such experience ,when I was walking around some world was like having a orgasm with every step.. Want proof we come from another world? Why can we stare at a sunset or a campfire for a long time? It reminds us of the worlds we once came from.

  141. Hello Brian, I feel sorry for you that so much hatred has come your way for basically breaking free of the dogma that so many poor and deluded fools (Ashy!!!!) operate under.
    I personally see so much hateful words spoken/typed by so called "spiritual" people that it leaves one big realization.......if you're religions allow you to become so unpleasant then you know what? keep your stinking religions and warped belief systems to yourself and stop polluting the minds of others with your hate crimes against anyone who, unlike you guys, has the heart and open-mindedness to see the world above the limited and self-fulfilling world of religion. If a so-called spiritual person gets agitated in any way just accept that they are on the wrong path and forget them.......because before to long the world will!
    True spirituality is a beautiful thing, religion is ugly, egotistical and an afront to love, peace and unity.
    Ashy, you need to find these things in yourself because you are a deeply unpleasant being and for you to be the way you are means that...YOUR BELIEFS HAVE FAILED YOU!!!! I know many athiests with so much more love and compassion than you and they do not need to ram their opinions down other peoples throats just because we all share different points of views and beliefs.

  142. Brian,

    The fact that you allow anyone to post hate mail on your own blog about you is clearly an indication of how open minded you are. Brilliant. I find it interesting that so called loyal, devoted, and faithful satsangi's have the time to: not only do research online about Sant Mat (Gurinder Singh Dhillon does not like satsangi's going online. And it took RSSB FOREVER to create a website.), but spew such hate. Shouldn't they be focused on their Simran and Dhyan?

    The way I see it, you have the best of both world's. You have been initiated by a "Perfect" Living Master. Therefore, you are destined to reach Sach Kand within 4 lifetimes. NO MATTER WHAT YOU DO OR SAY. I think Charan Singh used to say something about being chained to a bulldozer: you can either walk along side it or get dragged. Looks like you are currently choosing the latter. And if that's the case, good on you, brother.

    1. you are not sure to go to sach khand in 4 life spans. after that no more human births. but one has to finish off the sinchit karma's hence one if not done enough simran (which most of us dont) will be made to sit on the way to finish it off. and just to let you know 1 day of human life is equal to 1000 days in astral world. so instead of 1 day simran here you have to do it in 1000 days there. imagine how long a journey. but ya, one is out of this re-birth cycle for sure in 4 births

  143. There is a different church-less church than yours, on consisting of followers of Jesus who are also truth seekers, read the gospels, the king of the universe taught differently than those claiming to follow, no buildings, instead of collecting money He gave, no human rules, eg. the sabbath was make for man not man for the sabbath. He challenged man made religion all the time and was condemned by it but it was part of His purpose, to overcome death and sin and be the king who forgives all who love him, He founded faith and service to God free from people's agendas, not the Christian religion we know but one of freedom, holiness, love and self sacrifice all aiming to the greatest day of all, the gathering of all men in His home, when accepting Him and this incredible call you will have His help now and life when it's all done.

  144. hi brian I have gone through many of your writeups .I dont hate you or your blog,or anything you write and yes I am a follower of radhasoami teachings.I have seen your inclination towards chinese philosophy of taoism and I have myself gone through these myself and find them marvelous..I can still see your attachment(even if negative) towards RSSB as you keep on talking and following the latest updates.Anyways I dont know why I am writting to you..but somehow I see you too much engrossed with the concepts and ideas..the abstract notions of what is and what should be...once you left the organisation forget about it..why spend so much energies on proving that its not the right path..let it be...you embark on your own journey..I have gone through almost all the spiritual teachings that og ramanna maharishi,ekhart tolle,budha,christianity,taosim,zen budhism and all I see is the same thing being described in different ways! non dualism you seek is not in concepts..and its not selective...its everywhere..just get out of the inhibitions let the journey be as it is...your life seem to be so much common with that of sidhartha as in book by herman hasse...may your journey leads to that "one" you seek somehow...

  146. Organized religion was dreamt up by used car salesman. They’re like sure you can even have an afterlife no problem; just sign here and with easy easy little weekly payments we’ll get you rolling in this baby. I tell you what, you’ll look great in heaven too! Keep coming back my friend and nothing bad is gonna happen, ever. Just modify your life and everything cause we say so but really its just that easy. Here we’ve got a book of examples that was in fact annulled by this second book of examples but we like the stories cause they’re really catchy you know; just don’t question them and keep coming back…

  147. Who ever invented the afterlife scheme was a genius! “Yha yha, no problem, your gonna go to heaven / reincarnate / have higher REbirth, no sweat, happens all the time. Look you just gotta die to prove me wrong…

    Ohhhh don’t wanna die do you? No problem, no problem, look follow this simple fool proof method and yes you too can have a second chance.

    I sweAR TO GOD!
