Hey Guru - If Ellison owns Lanai, do you think the planning dept. can still bully him around? Juist heard that planners were in the plane that crashed last night.

He recently bought $80 million of high-end properties there so should have most of the island. Comment was that he plans to grow vegetables.

...not exactly, but we are exempt from normal laws of physics and the established hyper-dimensional model. Class II Guru's and Level three Guru's all can do things which defy the norms as far as thinking and creativity are concerned. We can create wealth out of thin air, see beyond most people's ability and ask objects to move and they do. For example, we once moved a car from it's parking spot by just willing it to move. Another example is that we can drain an entire swimming pool with thought within a minute. Other things are making plants grow much faster than anyone else, making animals tame with thought, and walking on water which is easy. Most people can do it if they have a belief. We do it all the time. For example, we did that tonight as we walked up to the mansion in Beverly Hills from the limo in the rain. Water was all over the ground and we walked all over it, never even thinking twice about it.

Guru teachings...

The East - exotic, sensuous, colorful. The West - solitary, rugged, practical. Eastern philosophy is Oneness expressed in multiplicity and transcendence through surrender.

Western thought is an immovable foundation of scientific inquiry, duality, and domination. How do such diverse world views meet?

East and West meet face to face in the guru-disciple relationship. Guru literally means "one who dispels darkness" or one who is "heavy" with the weight of vast knowledge. Through devotion and meditation, the guru has experienced oneness with Divine Reality. Ideally such a being can awaken the divine within a student, transmit knowledge, offer guidance, and help integrate these experiences. The guru helps build "the raft of knowledge" which "will cross over all evil" (1) of samsara (cycles of birth, death, and rebirth) to moksha (liberation). Hence the guru symbolizes going beyond the boundary of control to which many Americans adhere. But many people in this culture are not comfortable with spiritual exploration into an unknown or irrational realm.

There is another reason for Americans' discomfort with gurus. Harvard professor Diana L. Eck claims that the anticult movement has presented a distorted view of Hinduism, reflecting not just a fear of deviant cults but "America's first hometown encounter with a truly `other' world view." This encounter, according to Eck, has brought to the fore Americans' "deepest fears and imaginings." Fears of mind control, a negation of reality, and allegiance to a human being rather than to God are examples of interpretations that result from a partial understanding. Some worry that such ideas may undermine the family and promote ethical relativism, weakening our cultural foundation. Only genuine understanding of this relationship, can address those fears and perhaps alleviate them.(2)

The relationship between the guru and the disciple in America has many of the same dimensions as it has in modern India, featuring such elements as lineage and initiation as well as the necessity of such practices as meditation, yoga, chanting, surrender to the guru, seva (selfless service to the guru), devotion, knowledge of philosophical teachings, and, in some traditions, the guru's grace. But significant differences arise, not only in acculturation but in the gap between the ideal and what actually occurs.

Evaluating this relationship from an American perspective presents challenges. Criticisms may be seen as reflecting personal bias or a lack of understanding, while expressing only positive views for the sake of political correctness may ignore legitimate concerns.

Another challenge is that the information available cannot be regarded as entirely impartial. Most material on gurus is autobiographical or written by disciples, making it subject to the writer's own biases. We get a sense of this in the writings of the twentieth-century yogi Paramahansa Yogananda. In Yogananda's words, his guru Sri Yukteswar's samadhi was accompanied by "stupendous snores." One wonders if in this case samadhi was actually "deep yogic joy, as Yogananda declared, or great catnaps.(3)

On the other hand, outside observers may be unfamiliar with the essence of Eastern religion and philosophy while being subject to biases of their own. Although I want to present a balanced perspective, I need to state at the outset that I have two personal beliefs that have affected my conclusions.

Ask not what your Guru can do for you. Instead ask, what can you do for your Guru.

Good to hear from you Lolo. You have been gone so long I wondered if you have taken the big "dirt nap".
Ellison is a smart guy so he probably has all the angles covered.
