I had an email from someone I consider level-headed and sincere in communication. It contained a few interesting questions.
“I do wonder something about Kenneth: Do you ever think “hey, he’s playing the role given him by Nature, let it be”. Or are you more like: “he does his thing, and my thing is to reveal his fraudulent behavior”. It seems on one hand you know that the blueprint is what it is … but you still feel compelled to reveal him and stop people from believing his teachings. Do you believe what he teaches on the forum is complete bullshit? Just curious.
And although Realization can never be “gotten”, do you think removing human programming to a certain extent may uncover what is — this understanding you seem to have arrived at? If there are already tons of people in the spiritual market defrauding people (and themselves) by putting false shit in their heads about enlightenment (love, compassion, etc.) then is it so awful that Kenneth is charging for something that is closer to de-programming the human mind and setting people up for this understanding to happen, whether it does or not? It seems everyone is playing a role in this human play, including the spiritual market people that “Jed”, in his books, rails against.”
Yes, Kenneth does his thing, acting out on the Blueprint and his personal life circumstance. And yes, I do mine, also acting out on my Blueprint and personal circumstance. We manifest our true nature.
The same applies to every human, with a subtle difference: Kenneth, myself and other more evolved humans are aware of what their true nature is, and are not in any way ashamed or impeded by it. Acceptance of what you really are – is a big step towards maturity and true adulthood.
But this total acceptance of own nature also has a dark side: all becomes permissible. Absolutely nothing is out-of-bounds, which is why many self-realised humans are perceived as assholes. And some – are. Why? Because their specific true nature has always been that of a human without scruples.
The true nature of each human being is the dividing line between abusing fellow human beings and falling into feelings of ‘love’ and ‘compassion’ and ‘heart’.
I present an odd case because I do not belong to either of those categories. Someone very astute once said to me ‘There isn’t a single malicious bone in your body’. I find an ability of many humans to abuse one another quite incomprehensible, for many reasons. But neither do I fall in with the ‘love’ crowd, because I see the illusory nature of love. In fact, I have my understanding of what exactly humans mistakenly take for love and why this particular illusion is so persistent.
Next.. do I believe that what Kenneth is teaching is bullshit. No. First, he is not teaching anything. Kenneth acts as a blank screen onto which the forum participants project anything that occurs in their reality. The dialogues are more of a monologue type: people talk and he listens, occasionally giving a nudge here and there. This is people talking to THEMSELVES, but believing they are talking to him.
I once stated on the forum that no real interaction has ever taken place, BUT the only way humans learn anything of real value is via communication with one another. It sounds like another paradox, but it is really simple: to see into who you are – you need someone to reflect that to you. After all, if one lives on a desert island in complete isolation – one has no glimpse of themselves and will eventually devolve to a more animal-like state.
In other words.. to retain and see own human characteristics we need other humans.
Secondly… the point that I tried to convey and that people keep missing is that I have no problem with the content of the books or even the content of the forum. The problem lies in the act itself, the act of taking on a leadership role, a role of someone who lays claim to Wisdom and attempts to teach it. It is not possible to teach Wisdom. And even more suspect – to charge for teaching Wisdom.
If one is concerned about the state of other human beings – one is perfectly capable of parting with Wisdom in the course of their everyday life: by the way they act, their choices, their (free) advice to those near them, by not imposing themselves etc etc.. I thought it is a pretty obvious truth, but somehow it fails to be absorbed.
As a silly example… in the film ‘The Peaceful Warrior’ the man who guides the young fellow – is someone who quietly works at a petrol station, content and not in a hurry to jump on the guru bandwagon. While I thought the film itself was somewhat shallow in its message, with an obligatory ‘happy ending’, this particular detail felt very accurate to the true state of a self-realised person. And I don’t mean all have to have menial jobs; be a CEO if your nature so calls. Just don’t charge for your Wisdom of being.
Finally.. is it so awful that Kenneth charges for some de-programming.. No, it is not awful. It is simply fake. He has some honesty in saying that only 3 to 5% of his students ‘get’ it. It is a chance thing, which he is fully aware of. I have known people who absolutely get it intellectually, they make all the right noises and can have an intelligent conversation about ‘it’, and yet there is no Clarity, no Vision, no idea of themselves and who they are.
All is in the intent. Ask yourselves what the intent of the forums, the books, the seminars, the satsangs, the retreats is. What is the true intent?
Whatever Kenneth and numerous others like him do – they are playing God to your crippled psyche. Nothing else. And the reason why people like myself gain Clarity is not because we followed. It is because we questioned.
