I was asked by Jasun Horsley to do a podcast on Jed McKenna.
Jasun is a British writer, podcaster and an original creative thinker with a penchant for exploring the workings of the human Mind, which he does with much sincerity and tolerance. His website is a feast for both the mind and the eye.
I haven’t spoken to Jasun personally, apart from the podcast content and some email exchange, mainly of the logistics nature. However, we have one thing in common: realising the cult-like nature of spiritual teachings and those who sell them. Jasun was much involved with the praised guru John de Ruiter (a Canadian by coincidence, what’s with these Canadians huh?..).
While my involvement with ‘Jed McKenna’ was nowhere near the same scale, I can certainly recognize the signs of mind control. The insidious ways in which it takes over, slowly, tenderly, sometimes pushy and exciting and sometimes disinterested and cold, all designed to form a glue-like bond with the human puppeteer.. and it does not matter what the name is, the result is the same: the control of one mind over countless minds of others. But you think you are free of course.
This is one of the reasons I agreed to the podcast.
There is an old saying ‘One cannot step into the same river twice’. For me there is no interest in own thoughts and utterances once they left this body/mind. Hence, I did not listen to the recording after it was completed. But for those interested here is the link:
