Update: The Whys Of Crazy Cooper
File under: Wackadoo Gurus and Satscams
An alert reader presented us with this excerpt from Austin, Texas, deeksha scammer Willam Cooper's Book of Awakening. We'll let it speak for itself (with a little bit of help from us.):
One stated intention (it came in a vision to another psychic not me) was to put my face on the bill board and that Deeksha would be given to all those that pass by the bill board.My psychic friend has enabled me in my psychotic grandiosity by suggesting that my face has the power to attract everyone who gazes upon it.
That is what is happening!In the wilds of my fevered delusions.
Secondly, we wanted to familiarize all of Austin with the word deeksha to make it easier for all the deeksha groups and to raise the already high vibe in Austin.There are enough marks and patsies for all of us, as long as I get first shot at the ladies.
I also thought that it would be a statement for all spiritual groups to Austin that times are a changing.I didn't get anywhere close to this much nookie when I was in college!
We are in the Golden Age and Enlightenment is here Now!We are out of our heads, drunk with the power of deeksha-giving, amazed that just the suggestion of something happening is all that is required to make something "happen".
I am in no way committed to working to reach the 64,000 by 2012. I do so much because it is my joy and I can not help it.Plus, I'm getting crazy laid now.
There is not a difference between me and the action. There is not a doer in that regard....it just happens through me.It's still all about me... and all the tail I'm pulling.
In the same way, I quit my previous job at $95 per hour with unlimited work and have not had an income since 2003. I live on my savings.That should throw the IRS off the trail.
Work happens through me 7 days a week and the results are stunning because it is the Divine at work not me. Essentially I am a big Volunteer.Note the capital "V". I underplay it by design, but inside I'm convinced I'm an avatar, and I've got the grandiose self-image to prove it. Who needs those pompous greed-bags in India? Not me.
Today, Austin; tomorrow, the world.
Update: A former Austin deekshaite reveals another facet to Crazy Cooper's kooky ways:
One of the things that completely turned me off just before I stopped going last December was his announcement that he would no longer accept anyone into his private practice that wouldn't take deeksha. It sounds like he's just lying now and that he's become rather unethical as a therapist. Can you imagine a therapist that was into Scientology telling clients they had to audit or hit the road? I'm not even sure it's legal.It's not the first time we've heard rumblings of Cooper's not-so-ethical behavior as a psychotherapist. Hopefully a member of the Texas State Board of Psychologists will happen by the Billboard and be inspired to investigate just how far Crazy Coop has fallen out of the tree.
