Whenever the goyim talk about Jewish control of this institution or that and how the Jews have "conquered" the world and have subverted the predominant gentile paradigm by drawing immense power and money towards themselves, it makes me chuckle.

Its funny that you are the one person who disbelieves, but also the most likely to be controlled.

In the past you told you are going "here and there" but at the end of the day you never moved anywhere... This post of yours smells the same sht. You'll be in Mumbai.

You remind me of bmz and his London...

A pseudo-millionaire who always tells to go to the most upmarket places want to go in Swiss for winter and choose to go to the most ordinary places, while Swiss has one of the most posh places in the world, to enjoy the winter...

I must get rid of my Vedic hallucinations, fast. It trapped me for years with disastrous consequences. Sad, for Aviram Rozin and others who're enamored of the Vedic mumbo jumbo and have little or no chance of coming out of its clutches.

I feel sad for the hordes of Westerners and Israelis who flock to the ashrams of the various gurus in India seeking nirvana - a state of consciousness which they will never get nor will they get true peace. All they'll get from these possessed gurus is mind control, subservience, loss of identity, atrophy of free will and heavy delusion. Sad, very sad.

The higher states of consciousness exist as shown to me by my own experiences but they're not as esoteric as they're said to be. They're simply so many higher frequencies of vibration of the universal energy field. It's all a matter of more awareness and more power.

For some reasons I thought you were one of these goyim. Who knows why...

The case of millions of Indians flocking to the ashrams of the possessed gurus is not a startling phenomenon since most Indians are a degraded, deluded and an inferior lot who accept any nonsense based on hearsay or due to their unregulated passions and so they deserve the kind of evils that befall them in even greater measure after affiliating themselves to these diabolical gurus.

That said, it is usually not my "modern" custom to write it as G-d,
usually I prefer to write it as God.(unless I am communicating directly to someone who I know uses the form G-d, and then I might write G-d out of respect of their beliefs).
I stopped wondering how often the same questions are asked and the creativity employed to ignore any and all answers.

I have to since i discuss differences or history or language.
And to make that clear i rather use g-d then Ha Shem or even 'Ha Them' as some would when discussing religious issues and that are more versed into obeying or closer to the fact showing respect.

Apropos the water
First America was drowning in vortex induced ice water.
Icewater quakes even!
And now some cretins poisoned an entire waterway!
Even parts per million bad for health.

Will fracking still continue?
Though i'm not informed as to what this does exactly to the water used, but it seems to be very bad for ones health too.

Many of the battle-weary Israelis who flock to India and some of whom I have met at the Chabad House in South Mumbai have a low opinion of Indians who they say are sheep who can easily be led to the slaughter and who have little or no self-respect and who look short, dark and ugly. I readily agree with this assessment since it's true though it may sound extremely rude.

MY hosts would of be horrified at the very idea of having to label. I am sure I was the only Jew there. I did enjoy it, and I would guess I did eat the pork one. I didnt blink once I found out either, I am too liberal for that.
Donuts? Havent had those either for many years, dunno why I gave them up but last time I tried to eat one, it didnt sit so well. Same thing happened with Coffee. Somehow I evolved out of drinking it regularly, but I found I couldnt stomach it once I stopped drinking it. On the other hand, I went a few years without potato chips (just as greasy as donuts), but was able to jump right back in. The body is a mysterious thing.
Labeling isn't a bad thing and it's not just for our Jewish friends.

My sister-in-law puts out these fried cheese balls on Christmas eve (the fishes) and half of them have anchovies, the rest are plain provolone inside. They usually put a little scrap of paper that reads "Anchovies/" - Those are the ones I go for!(They also label the stuffed peppers - half are hot and half are mild/sweet - again they look the same -hot ones for me of course)

Lots of people are there and the hosts aren't always around to say what is what.

But I agree that I wouldn't ask anyone to label anything they hadn't already. It can be hard to get the lay of the land sometimes however. Luckily for me (but not my waistline) there isn't much I don't eat.

I agree about donuts. Most of them are pretty boring.

A good Napoleon (French pastry) is a wonderful thing however.

Oddly enough, I also stopping drinking coffee - but only for a couple of years and then took it up again - just one cup in the morning. I like it strong.

Exploration of consciousness is valid but all talk of advanced machines, knowledge of genetics, information on QM and the like that Vedantists say are found in the Vedic literature must be debunked for the simple reason that they're not true.

A staunch Hindu had this to say to me:

"Access to the Vedas is the greatest privilege this century may claim over all previous centuries." J. Robert Oppenheimer (father of atomic bombs)

JOEL'S REPLY:

The Vedas gave Oppenheimer's labored mind some peace which is subjective.

Others do not need this Vedic-kind of subjective peace as they can find peace in say a waterfall or in reading Charles Dickens.

The Vedas did not teach Oppenheimer mass, proton number, atomic mass number, nuclear physics, quantum mechanics or thermonuclear fusion.

Ask leading scientists like Lawrence Krauss, Stephen Hawking, Ed Witten, Richard Dawkins, Sam Harris and others and they'll laugh at the Vedas which have already been debunked.

I have been watching with concern how modern science itself, perhaps the single most powerful force for secularization, is being re-coded as "sacred" by mumbo jumboists, either as affirming the Bible or the Vedas, or as "lower knowledge" of "dead matter," in need of spiritualization.
