Am I a Sat Guru? Oh, how I wished!
[A seeker asks]
I have never written anything to an egroup before . . . you are the first. I have been reading through your answers to various email letters, and honestly don't understand what is going on.
I'm not even sure how I subscribed to your egroup, although I think I did it through reading the "guru" list and www.wideopenwin.com
Are you a Teacher of Truth, so to speak, like a SAT Guru or something like it?
Am I a SatGuru? Oh, how I wished?
Nej meneer, I am just an ordinary London lad.
I hang around the all-night Brick Lane Bagel shoppee, hence there has been speculation that I am the Christ-Maitreya first revealed to the world by artist/chaneller Benjamin Creme back in the late 70's. In 1982, full page advertisements appeared in major international newspapers, like the New York and the Lond Times, announcing that the Christ-Maitreya would be seen by the whole world. This was subject to all the television networks of the world linking up and showing the Christ-Maitreya's beaming face as he transmitted telepathic messages (read Cosmic jokes) to every man woman and child (it would have tyo be before the watershed time of 9 p.m.) on the planet.
Unfortunately, I had school exams at the time and was worried that my relatives might be conscripted to sort out the Falklands crisis. The time was not right.
Then, international haute couture fashion guru, Paco Rabane, predicted that the Messiah lives in London, would be revealed in the year 2000 and be the same age as Jesus Christ when He finished his mission. I only discovered this relatively recently.
Of course, I discount all these theories because I do not want to be exceptionally famous, because I eat in some of the cheapest, most authentic restaurants in Chinatown for the sheer ambience. The waiters are generally perceived as incredibly rude. They tell you where to sit and, almost, what to eat. My mission has been to find stillness in such chaos. By Grace, this has been bestowed. I now generally get what I want in Chinese restaurants.
Soon after this Bestowal-Betrothal of Grace. I started to share my Perspective Shift and this became 'Teaching' due to market-forces. However, after having done the "Shaking Up the Money-Changers in the Temple" scene I now seek an early retirement to the Wilderness. There I can be found shouting "Eli! Eli! Lama sabachtani?" ["My God! My God! Why has thou forsaken me!"] at passing cacti.
Moi - a "Sat Guru"? Per piacere non chiamarmi con quel nome perche' e ridicolo! [Please don't use such names for (because for me) they are ridiculous.]
Moi - a "Teacher of Truth"? Truth cannot be easily taught. But I give a lesson:
I encourage you to look. Really look at yourself. Totally naked, no make-up, not even with the radio on. What do you see? What is there? Really, what is there?
"Can you see what I see?" - as the children's nursery rhyme goes.
