Comments Enabled

All,

After quite a few years I've re-activated comments on this blog. This will be heavily moderated with the following policies:

1. Disrespectful comments are not allowed

2. Comments must be restricted to ones direct personal experiences.

3. Espousing  or promotion of spiritual organization doctrine will not be tolerated as it violates principle #2 above.


Comments will be enabled for a trial period.  My hope is that this will facilitate an exchange of individual experiences. I hope this will provide a productive forum for independent thinking and commentary. I request that comments  not devolve into to the promotion of faith based concepts that cannot be verified by direct personal experience.

I encourage commentary from people from all back grounds and traditions, not just SRCM. The intention here is to enable a healthy and meaningful exchange of experiences and ideas to enable healing, inspiration and upliftment.



Best Regards


Michael

The Current State of SRCM

The 10+ years of experience I had as a prefect and abhyasi in SRCM pales in comparison to the Journey I embarked upon when I departed SRCM over 25 years ago. It is no wonder to me that this organization struggles to continually re-invent itself to maintain their disciples attention and interest. Re-branding and re-writing history only puts a new face on the same organization.

SRCM leadership lusts for being a major world spiritual organization yet remains insignificant in the larger scheme of things. 

Like all hierarchical organizations, SRCM draws spiritual power from its disciples. It reinforces the myth of spiritual inadequacy and dependence on a hierarchy and mission to achieve some elusive goal. Like all religions it promises a brighter world upon death in exchange for enduring misery and sacrifice in this life. In its wake is the carnage of damaged lives and families. 

This is the opposite of spirituality. There is no spiritual goal. There is only the Journey which is infinite! In effect, disciples willingly sacrifice their Spirit Journey to serve a mission. 

I pray for the awakening of all sincere souls. May they take that simple step to resume their Spirit Journey that Creator has lovingly placed before them.

Love and Blessings,

Michael
