Ted Farkel





I got auto-knowledge and it's great!!!!
Hey guys,or hi y'all, as they say down south.My name's Ted Farkel and I'm a new premie.I just received the new improved 'auto Knowledge' from a dv player and I'm already feeling gratitude and am excited about participation too!

OK, I know what you're thinking, who's Ted Farkel, and what's he doing here at EPO?
Let me explain....
I'm a life long resident of Mobile,Alabama.My daddy and me and my brother,we all own and operate a transmission repair shop in Shaft, just outside Mobile.
I'm really just a nice country boy/redneck/regular guy,and am really new to all this spiritual stuff.
Anyway, about 6 months ago,an old friend sent me an introductory video of maharaji.My friend thought I might be 'looking for something',and asked me to check it out.
Well,I was sceptical at first, but after watching videos for a few weeks,I sprung for the satellite feeds at the shop.Hell,they were only $50/month, a real bargain comnpared to people paying $20/week in some places, so I figured I ought to jump on that opportunity real fast and sign up before they raised the prices or something like that.
Heck, can you even put a price on LOVE anyway?Like all the premies(except those who are too lazy to practice), I am just so overwhelmed by the amount of such pure love coming from our master,maharaji.The videos are such a pure channel for his pure love and wisdom and grace.

So,here's why I'm here...
I guess Rodney King said it all when he said 'Why can't we all just get along?'
I was just wondering, couldn't a few of you exes just practice the 4 sacred techniques a few more times and see how beautiful our master and the supreme knowledge really is?

Like today...I just woke up and started with number one.The light was so bright, it really was brighter than 10,000 sun, and after that, I saw all the masters in a lotus petal inside the light.And the succession was just like they said, from krishna to buddha to jesus all the way to swami sarupanand.It's funny, because after sarupanand, it went to some guy named varganand, not shri hans....
But that's Ok, it really was a beautiful experience. And who am I to question my lord?
After that, I stuck my thumbs in my ears and heard angels singing and divine harmonies too.In fact, these were the very same harmonies that Beethoven and Mozart heard, even though one of them was deaf....all that just by stickjing my thumbs in my ears for a few minutes..our lord really is merciful, don't you think?
And then I got on that good ole Word, or number 3, and experienced a sort of divine orgasm, as the energy of life passed through my body and I experienced total oneness with everything in the entire universe...all the plants and animals and insects and oceans and stars too! Just from following my brteath and thinking 'so hung'.Once again, our Lord has thought of everything and given us so much more than we could ever repay him..
And then that 4th one...Oh god,it's just too much.I never thought that I could know god by swallowing my own snot!God certainly does work in strange ways, doesn't he?
It's just like maharaji says:I looked in all these places in the world and lo and behold, here was god, right under my own pillow, in my snot!
What a pleasant surprise!
And like my daddy pointed out,when I get a cold, and have lots of mucus, I'll feel even closer to god!(Daddy's still an aspirant)

So, if ole Ted Farkel from Mobile, Alabama can have these great experiences, how about a few of you exes giving it the good ole college try?
It's so true, we can never,ever repay him for that grace!
I mean, I intend to try, by sending in my $50/month on the visa card, but still, can we ever repay him enough?
To be in THAT experience, of HIS love, and then to be able to serve HIM?
Like maharaji says, how dare we be confused in this life?
By his grace, I realized that it's not my life anyway.
maharaji gave me life, and I just have to give it back to him.
And he asks so little of all of us...

I even wrote a little poem expressing my gratitude for the gift of practice, which leads to my synchronized participation....

'Sometimes I don't know who I am,
or what I'm doing...
But then I see your face,
and realize that I don't care....'

Doesn't that just about say it all?
Anyway, that's about it for now, brothers and sisters...

How bout all of us gettin our of our minds and into THAT love, by HIS grace....
