I'm not really making a point there, simply an observation. Though I would be leaning towards the other way if I had to commit. When the desire to change yourself disappears then you have no desire to change the world, to free anybody else. Which is how it appears to be in UG and Mooji. If someone comes with a question they will respond but they cannot simply get up and speak to the world about this because they don't see anything there to be changed. This has resonated with my experience for a while now because I am left in a situation where I am wondering what to do now. If this had been any other kind of experience I should have been writing songs and on a mission trying to spread the 'message' to the world but even that isn't really there anymore. Strangely, it doesn't worry me, it's just slightly bewildering. I'm 29, what the hell do I do now? Songs still occasionally come but I can't put together a masterplan to release and market them. In fact, at the moment I've been playing with the idea of just sticking them up for free download and seeing what happens.
So I can totally relate to UG not being able to give formal talks. I'm not saying Eckhart shouldn't be capable of being inspired off his own back to write books and talk but this is where it gets tricky because many are doing that and have built up companies and organisations around this when it is really about them. Even the subtlest yet best intended movement to save/change the world in some way has a "you" behind it.
Wow I thought you were thinking the other way. Actually you took the words out of my mouth 7. I feel exactly the same way minus the music part which I am so horrible that to carry a tune I would have to excercise a whole year for!
You know I have been blessed in my life to sit with many tecahers, masters whatever one wish to name them. By far the ones that just got up and spoke had their own agenda at mind. The ones that said nothing and just waited for the next question did not want nor need to change a thing because they were perfect in their own life and were just there to share. Ramana Mahashri,Nisargadatta Maharaj, and a host of others are the same way.
It is unusal for them to give a speach or anything without being asked first.
Now I also have to admit I have not followed nor listen to ET that much so I do not know his MO. But to be sure I really become turned off if I go to listen to someone I feel is spiritual and all I hear is a sermon.
So thanks for the sharing you know they say that at 29 it is suppose to be your Saturan return in astrology which means that when your in your 29th year all the planets are in the same place as they were when you were born so it is a powerful 2nd begining that we all get every 29 years. If you believe in that sort of thing. I need to be careful here before I sound like a new ager that visits this board but it is a fun thing to think about.
Oddly enough I have seen people, friends of mine make amazing life changes whn it came around year 29th so who knows.
