Worthy Of The Wall

File under: Notable Quotes

"Bite Me" Betty has been hanging around the comment sections of this blog off and on for about a year or so, and she clearly has something to say above and beyond her usual retort, as evidenced by this statement:
Saints are generally made "perfect" by the passage of time and by the imaginations of people who want to believe somebody else can do their inner work for them or give them something--like money, relationships, children or health.

A true saint will never be "perfect", neither will they pretend to be god, demand money for their teachings or for darshan, have sex with children, molest women, enslave their followers with fake beliefs of any kind.
She took those words right out of our mouth and arranged them in a way that pretty much states the whole reason this blog exists. We'll bite Betty anytime she wants.

Again I am gobstopped by the simple elegance and beauty of your words! This is the kind of stuff my mule is always sayin but I can't write fast enough to record!

Just think of what you could say with some of semblance's golden weed cake in you! I think the man would leave his momma and live with you if you weren't so far away!

Thanks all, but no need to disparage yourself, semblance. You will get your place of honor on the wall. I often get a kick out of what you have to say. In fact, Chuck's mule HAS been speaking to me and even offered to give up the mule shed in Dime Box if I would give him shelter. It seems that even a mule can only stand so much.

I am cut to the quick and am beginning to wonder if Da Free Jack may be as narcissistic as some of these other gurus who work their devotees one against the other! No, my faith must remain firm... This is just a sad rumor spread by a disgruntled former disciple! Betty, I am disappointed in you!

I empathize with chuckJi. Like all gurus, Free Jack started off on a high and honest note, as time rolled by, with all the attention it grabbed, now a victim of circumstances, playin' the da big guru game.

Chuck, does it mean da Free Jack lack any wisdom ? just because it became a fame whore lately?

I think the only way to cool down Free jack now is to grab him by his tail, hang him upside down on the big oak tree, light up the bonfire of weed cakes, sprinkle
the subtropical alfalfa fluids, smoke him out for 108 minutes.
Everything should be ok. Betty can try as hard she can, Free jack will not move an inch outta that shed of wisdom in dimebox for the rest of chuckji's life...

Actually Betty, thats a very well written statement. Sing song like.
I read it now again after i spent time in the tub washing away the weed impact for not less than two hours. Well done betty, i wish i have a clarity on such touchy issues in life. Did ya do some kriya to get this illumination?

I appreciate these kind words of reassurance, semblance! It may be true as you say that Da Free Jack has strayed from the pure path. Lately the mule shed has not been enough and he has craved the bright lights of Lufkin and Nacadoches. According to Free Jack, he has a message and a power too great to waste in a Dime Box back 40. It's a big world out there and a needy one! I must not and will not stand in the way of the Good Lord, be he man or mule! But I will always stand by my mule! Paraphrasing the immortal words of Miss Tammy Wynette:

Sometimes it's hard to be a devotee
Giving all your love to just one mule
You'll have bad times
And he'll have good times
Doin things that you don't understand
But if you love him
You'll forgive him
Though he's not hard to ridicule
And if you love him, be proud of him
Cause after all he's just a mule

Stand by your mule
Give him two arms to cling to
And something warm to come to
when nights are cold and lonely

Stand by your mule
And show the world you love him
Keep giving all your love you fool!
Stand by your mule!

No semblance, no kriya or siddhi--I just got almost as old as chuck must be, being trapped several times in the games of "perfect saints." I do have a guru now who I have good reason to trust and learn from. He requires no worship, charges nothing for his teaching and has a code of conduct that is exemplary. There is no need to be fooled again.

To chuck, wake up buddy! If your mule is two timing you, just walk away!

yes this is a great definition of a saint , but not most gurus. i am reading an article right now by a guy named Brian Calder, about his time spent with Rashneesh. He is saying what that guy John Horgan is saying , that perfect enlighenment is a myth. yes a self realized being can be a crook in this world.
I say the Guru tradition is from an ancient caste system that us westerners have tried to shoehorn our selves into and it's an uncomfortable and awkward fit. As far as this belief system is concerned all modern events are aberrations that must not interfere with the purity of ancient truth and wisdom. I read somewhere that most Indians listen to about 50% of what a guru says. Suzuki Roshi brought Zen to America because the Japanese were sick of it. Of course in India you have Rad Hindus that are the craziest of the crazy. they would do anything to preserve that system. So again do you just latch on to someones coattails and pray for the best or do you live by your own lights and see your truth as it is now. Guys like Ken Wilber are always belly aching about how westerners need to get to therapy and deal with there emotional issues , but if they did they they wouldn't need Ken Wilber and most of these other cosmic gits. . this is an interesting read.

It may not make him a better one, but it does give him a better position from which to flimflam.

Regardless of the modern ideas about saints and self realization, I will never accept that someone who is fully and completely self realized (whatever that may mean) would willfully hurt another (as in raping women, having sex with little boys, ordering murders, or even flim flamming their devotees out of their savings). They wouldn't do these things anymore than a sane person would cut off a finger just to see how it feels.

The flim flammers and sadistic monsters who seem to have self realization are half baked beans.

I have never read Ken Wilber but agree that everyone, including all the Indians and other Asians I have met could do with a lot of therapy. Byron Katie's work is a simple and effective tool for investigating our false and limiting beliefs, although she seems to be really trying to capitalize on her following now ($4000 for a 9 day seminar).

I can't just walk away, Betty, I live here! You have lured Free Jack with your long lashes and batty eyes. The least you should do now is pay to have the mule shipped!

Ramkrishna said that God is what you love. If perfect enlightenment doesn't exist ,we have to look for what works for us and what we love. If being bossed around by a midget in Gucci is what works for someone and is somehow what they love, god help them. Obviously a lot of these people don't seem to be about love.

Sorry Chuck, I turn a blind eye when it comes to mules. You're on your own big boy. But I'll bet there's an exist counselor experienced with mule cults available somewhere.

Betty! while it bugged no end to read fauxRus, you seem to have found a gemoffa guru and it aint fair to hide him under your quilt.
As much we drummin' up fauxrus
it would be refreshin' if you tell something bout your fairRu?
Atleast a website? The only other Ru who i heard of is presently being castrated and about to be rope drugged, by that old fart, out of that shed, in dimebox. That leaves us with just only one fairRu and thats yours.
Be a sweetheart and let us know a bit of your secret guru betty !

Sorry, sem, but no can do. He's not a big publicity seeker.

So, Betty, Jody, you will both just keep showing up here bashing any public gurus, but both of you refuse to share your secret guru so we can also visit him/her and decide whether or not to bash? Seems hypocritical to me. I know, Betty, "bite me".

I don't care how it sounds, buster. Every Guru "bashed" here has deserved it. They are all guilty of doing things they require their students and devotees not to do. When they change, I'll change.
