Louie The Avatard
File under: Wackadoo Gurus
Today at GuruRatings, list owner Sarlo brought our attention to one Avatar Louix Dor Dempriey. That's kinda kingly sounding. The roi of the world, who regards himself as the one true Maitreya, is apparently under attack. Such are the travails of the savior of all humanity. Speaking for himself:
The immense Light of this Avatar in particular, The Maitreya, immediately reveals in others—the very moment they encounter His Divine and Immortal Presence—all that is not pure within them, so that they may purify it by following His simple guidance, His flawless example, and by following His gentle, easy, and loving direction...God is sounding a bit paranoid, but ever so gracious, no?
Instead of recognizing this truth and prostrating themselves in utter humility and gratefulness for having been so duly blessed, exalted, and uplifted, most of those in the Avatar’s presence use this dross (He so graciously exhumes from the corpses of their Separate existence) as a weapon against their own Lord.
Even in the midst of such ignorance, treachery, and treason does the Lord, Himself, in human form, accept these unworthy offerings of love as the finest roses in His garden of souls; does He bear and endure these transgressions against Him; and does He continue loving in the face of such adversity—until such time that His children will finally surrender to the Truth and Inevitability of His love and of their inexorable union with Him.
Louie the Avatar reminds us of an acquaintance from some years ago. We remember David Spero as a very sweet man, albeit one who was convinced that he could transmit enlightenment by enveloping his devotees' prana with his "shakti," as he termed it. After doing so, he would query the devotees about their experiences, and then he would explain their experiences in the context of his "spiritual power" and what it was doing for them.
And he would talk shit about people who left his group. It seemed to fly in the face of his reason. After all, he was a divine being, and anyone who met him was blessed by his presence. Just like Roi Louie. They even kind of look alike.
We truly wish David well and pray he not fall into the pit of "divine" self-regard to the depth that Louie has. While it's one thing to see yourself as a unique transmitter of "divine power," it's quite another to see yourself as "the One," the only one, true, authentic and showing each and every other avatar to be false. That's just plain, "I'm Jesus Christ"-style crazy. For Louie we recommend a course of ECT followed by a regimen of Risperdal and Prozac.
It has worked wonders for us.
