Below is EXACTLY why I keep saying that ‘Jed’ books are dangerous to an average representative of the human race.
What’s with the rules and the laws? Believe you me – I hate regulations whose scripts attempt to prescribe the tiny minutiae of my existence. BUT, dear monkeys… not all rules and laws are evil. Have you grokked it yet? The rules and the laws are there to save YOU – from yourself. To save others – from YOU. To save YOU – from others. The Code of Hammurabi goes back nearly four thousand years, because someone had figured out what happens when the monkey crowd runs free.
Chaos and anarchy, together with the mob mentality, will always prevail, because human monkeys have no common sense, no sense of personal responsibility, no inherent decency or self control and a great desire to look the best monkey in the vicinity. Starts in the kindergarten, gets groomed and reinforced through competitive sports (I hate competitive sports, this re-enactment of war) and carries throughout life till the grave, an unconsciously acquired egotistic existence. It is only partially man-made, some is intrinsically natural, and not every monkey is as such, by all means.
Just the monkey majority.
Did I say ‘no brain cells either’?
The subsequent fake, but convincing sense of ‘freedom’ from reading the books leads to… guess where? Monkey freedom or, rather, what monkeys understand as ‘freedom’: The Jungle Law.
Have you ever noticed that those in power are particularly monkey-like: devoid of scruples, morals, compassion, always double dealing, scheming and fucking the best females? Have you noticed that most monkeys in power have all the psychopathic tendencies needed to dominate the tribe? Have you noticed that ANYONE who offers ‘solutions’ to your problems – is robbing you of the chance to grow up? And that includes especially the ‘enlightened’ teaching folks.
Now, give monkeys a ‘no morality’ rule and observe how they will ‘better’ themselves in the jungle. Morality does not exist – in the Absolute. But you are human for fuck’s sake. Here, on this planet, surrounded by other humans. Ah, but they (non dual folks) say other humans don’t exist… so much the better!! Trash the ethics!! Or as Bender used to say ‘Wanna kill some humans?’
Incidentally… the Invisible Guru loves chaos. The forum has a host of newbies and some oldies from way back, and by god does the commentary there rob the folks of any chance of independent thinking…. It is so nonsensical that I cringe watching the show. I remember my forum days when it felt not true, but I couldn’t quite figure out why. I thought that ‘Jed’ had changed his tune.
Well, the real author IS changing his tune slowly as the years go by. But in relation to the fake forum… it was me who fell into a monkey state for a few months, and that’s hilarious to know. I remember for Adyashanti it was some love affair that pushed him into the monkey state for a while.
And if the above offends your sensibilities – it’s because it is true.
“I see it all as a big game we are all playing. All these characters in the game are imagined by me, as I am too, right? What is morally acceptable then? Is morality even important if all there is is imagined, a movie?
I didn’t do anything immoral still but it is presenting itself as an option.”
“Immoral presenting itself as an option”….. way to go, Human.
