This act of thievery is the reason behind the great anger felt by many exes.
My anger stems from the fact that in my deepest depression, Maharaji was there to take avantage of that for his own benefit, not to help me in any way, although he acted, literally, as if he was God's gift to the world who could heal whatever ails you.
I don't care much for meditation, but I do enjoy just sitting with my eyes closed, just being conscious of whatever. I hear, that in independent studies, it's been shown to have the same effect.
I wonder when the whole thing got started. Who was the first guy who meditated and started the rage? Was it a caveman, maybe? Fred Flinstone? Maybe it went something like this:
Fred: Hey Barney, I just discoverd something that you might want to know about.
Barney: Er, what's that, Fred?
Barney: You don't say. What's that?
Fred: You just sit quietly, close your eyes, and look.
Barney: Er, look at what, Fred?
Fred: At whatever, Barney.
Barney: You don't say.
Fred: Try it Barney. I think you'll like it.
Barney: Er, okay, Fred. I'm closing my eyes and looking at whatever. Feels like I'm just closing my eyes, Fred. What's suppoded to happen?
Fred: I don't know. I just like doing it. Don't you?
Barney: Fred, are you okay?
Fred: I'm telling you, Barney. Mark my words. One day, this is going to be all the rage.
Barney: Er, okay, Fred. If you say so. Let's go bowling.
