Gerald Joe Moreno Responds To PhD Timothy Conway About Jegathesan Letter

Posted on: November 20, 2009

[JJ:] Do not condemn them! Do not vilify them – only pray that they find Peace and Love in their lives!

[TC: These words by Jagadeesan are so unbelievably hypocritical it boggles the mind. He has spent most of his entire letter thus far, and will continue to do so over the rest of his letter, condemning and vilifying the con-cerned critics with name-calling and character assassination, and here he tells his readers “Do not condemn them! Do not vilify them — only pray that they find Peace and Love in their lives!” He doesn’t realize that the concerned critics are trying to bring some degree of Peace and Love and yes, HEALING, to the victims of Baba’s sexual molestation. The official Sai organization, by contrast, has not brought ANY Peace or Love or Healing to these vic-tims; rather, it has repeatedly tried to cover up the horror and has had the gall to maliciously slander and attack the victims and those who would try to enact justice in this matter.]

Moreno’s Response: Once again, where are the victims? Where are their families? Where are the charges, public grievances, basic police complaints or court cases? How is the Sai Organization supposed to address these criminal allegations when no one has filed criminal charges?

Critics are not trying to bring “peace”, “love” or “healing” to alleged victims. Former Followers have a nasty habit of sexualizing everything pertaining to Sathya Sai Baba and Sai Proponents. This deviant and perverse sexualization of Sai Baba is a highly prevalent tactic employed by former followers (even with absurd claims that Sai Baba is engaging in questionable sexual acts in full view of thousands of devotees while being recorded on video). For example, see the edited Ex-Baba movie clip entitled Sai Baba Groin (approximately 950kb, wmv file). Ex-Devotees have also maliciously accused me (Joe Moreno) of being sexually abused by Sathya Sai Baba despite my repeated clarifications to the contrary (Ref). I have also been targeted by critics and they have created numerous webpages to defame and libel me (Ref). This type of blatant dishonesty proves that critics are not trying to bring “peace”, “love” or “healing” as Timothy Conway ridiculously asserts.


[JJ:] Early this year, I released a book called “EVOLUTION – Science of Creation, Life and Living & Spirituality” – perhaps the most difficult challenge in all the books I have been motivated to write! In that book in examining the topic of the human mind, I touched unwittingly (or perhaps divinely guided) on this very topic that is causing so much pain and confusion in the minds of SAI devotees whose faith in yet to be fixed as firmly as the STAR to the crescent moon! I am attaching as an Appendix to this letter a brief extract from that book! For those who have the book, please refer to page 31, section 16 — “The 3 Forces of the Mind” for a fuller elaboration on this subject of the Human Mind and how it causes turbulence in life! [Excerpt from Jagadeesan’s Appendix reproduced here rather than at end of letter:] THE 3 FORCES OF THE MIND–This maya which affects the human mind has actually got three forces, or pol-lutants. One is called MALA, which is dirt, “the pollution”. The other one is the AVARANA SHAKTI, which can be called the cloak — “that which (because of the dirt) covers or disguises”, and the third is VIKSHEPA SHAKTI – what is projected, “the force of projection”. So in the example of the rope and the snake therefore, what is the relevance of the rope and snake in real life? It is this! The darkness represents the mala, the dirt and this creates the AVARANA SHAKTI, the cloak (that blurs the vision). The cloak is our inability to see through the darkness. The rope is an innocent object, but the VIKSHEPA SHAKTI (the force of projection), projects a snake onto the rope:- the moment the mind projects, every emotion is aroused in the person, fear, everything for a non-existent object – only because of his VIKSHEPA SHAKTI – ‘Projection’.

[TC: What Jagadeesan has done is simply bring out the classic analysis of primordial ignorance by Shankara and his followers in the line of Advaita Vedanta. It has no relevance to the discussion of the Sai controversy at hand. Jagadeesan is just as involved in Mala, Avarana Shakti, and Vikshepa Shakti as any of the critics who might not be perfectly realized Jnanis/Sages.]

Moreno’s Response: Actually, this paragraph is relevant to the Sai Controversy. As a matter of fact, Robert Priddy has written a great deal about “projection” and how he believes that Sai Devotees essentially “project” the positive onto Sai Baba. However, what Robert Priddy failed to discuss is how Ex-Devotees essentially project the negative onto Sai Baba. So if Timothy Conway does not think that the “projection” discussion is relevant to the Sai Controversy, then he just invalidated a great portion of Robert Priddy’s writings.


[JJ:] If you read the attached — you will see that this is the science of mind – the mind reflects onto external ob-jects that which its nature — it own perceptions! If you are aware as to who are the principle perpetrators of these vile accusations against SAI, (and the nature of their minds), you may come to your own conclusions! The other weaker minds only follow in innocence!

[TC: By this logic, Martin Luther King, Jr. and the heroic civil rights protestors were all “projecting” their own negativity in condemning racial prejudice and calling certain white supremacists “racist.” The French Resis-tance heroes and heroines were all “projecting” their own negativity in condemning Nazi atrocities and calling the Nazis “fascist.” And so on. Now, in the present case, those who are deeply concerned about the ethical improprieties inherent in Baba molesting children are “projecting” their own negativity by calling what is happening to Baba’s youthful victims “sexual molestation” and suggesting that Baba is, according to the conventions of human law, behaving criminally! Note that, using Jagadeesan’s silly logic, he himself, by engaging in this long-winded, verbiose criticism of Baba’s critics, is himself “projecting” the entire thing out of his own negativity!]

Moreno’s Response: There is absolutely no comparison between Martin Luther King, the French Resistance heroes and heroines and Ex-Devotees! Talk about delusions of grandeur!

Timothy Conway again mentioned the fraudulent “child molestation” claims (which I already discussed and refuted in-depth on my website). When the alleged victims and their mothers and fathers have all (without exception) refused to file charges, public grievances, basic police complaints and court cases against Sathya Sai Baba in India, Timothy Conway should not fault Sai Devotees for doubting and dismissing the allegations as baseless and unsubstantiated internet rumors.

Timothy Conway has inadvertently refuted a great portion of Robert Priddy writings in which he claims that Sai Devotees “project” the positive onto Sathya Sai Baba. Of course, if Ex-Devotees can use this illogic against Sai Devotees, then I fail to see why Ex-Devotee’s whine and snivel when their same arguments are mirrored back at them.


[JJ:] “Close Devotees”: Some of you have been stunned by the fact that so called “close devotees” of SAI have dropped out because of this filth that is being spread through their ears and eyes and into their minds! Devotees who have had so many “interviews”, those who have received Baba’s divine manifestations (rings, pendants, etc) have dropped out and so our jaws drop in amazement! But, is this so unusual? Who betrayed Christ? Was it His enemies or those closest to Him?

[TC: Jagadeesan stoops even lower here, suggesting that Baba’s critics are like Judas. But the retort that we concerned critics would issue is this: Was Jesus alleged to have sexually molested hundreds of minors? Was Jesus telling children that, unless they had sex with him, then he would not see their parents? Was Jesus paying children for sexual favors? Of course not. Yet this is what is being alleged about Baba by credible eyewitnesses who claim to have experienced this unseemly side of Baba. So Jagadeesan’s analogy falls flat on its face.]

Moreno’s Response: Once again, Timothy Conway is basing his arguments on his fraudulent “child molestation” claims (which I already discussed and refuted in-depth on my website). Therefore, Timothy Conway’s argument falls flat on its face.

It is also significant to note that although Sanjay Dadlani (a vocal Ex-Devotee) was caught requesting Jesus Pornography (he even admitted to making the requests), you will not find Timothy Conway expressing any concern regarding this perverse behavior whatsoever. Sanjay Dadlani was also caught photographing teenagers and unsuspecting female students at Middlesex University in the UK with his digicam (filming them on the streets, at bus stands and under tables) and posted hundreds of photographs on his Street Bitches blog. Even the webmaster for the Lake Of Flowers website (who happens to be friends with Sanjay) caught him in this shocking behavior and wrote an email documenting his findings for me to forward to University Officials (which I did). Needless to say, one will not find even one Ex-Devotee (including Timothy Conway) expressing any type of concern over this deviant and illegal exploitation of women and female teenagers. This proves that Ex-Devotees alleged sensitivities to sexual exploitation are huge and hypocritical pretenses.

Where is your dharma, morality and ethics now, Timothy Conway?


[JJ:] And did not Christ know who would deny and betray him and yet He treated them with love! Who dared wage a war against Krishna – those who were His enemies or those who went to Him seeking His help and to whom He gave His army to? Was not Ravana, the Asura who turned against Rama, close to Divinity, for was it not from the Divine that he received his powers? Was not Hiranyakasipu (the father of Prahlada), the Asura who turned against the Devas and even Narayana Himself, close to Divinity – for was it not Divinity who conferred on him the awesome powers he used, to deny Divinity!

[TC: Jagadeesan is trying to paint all concerned critics of Baba’s criminal pedophilia with the same brush, tarring them by associating them with Judas, the demon Ravana, the demon Hiranyakasipu, and the demonic enemies of Krishna. This attack strategy by Jagadeesan really stinks — it is completely bereft of any integrity whatsoever. Rather than compassionately address the legitimate questions, concerns, and grievances of Baba’s critics, Jagadeesan, in knee-jerk fashion, can only lash out with A FURY OF NEGATIVITY THAT IS, ITSELF, DEMONIC in its lack of compassion, loving-kindness, and understanding. But rather than imply that Jagadeesan is a “demon” (I don’t like stooping to his level), I would simply invite him with all my heart to please try to look at this situation objectively and see that Baba’s critics aren’t the embodiment of some evil, demonic force. Rather, we are only trying to STOP AN ONGOING EVIL: the manipulative molestation of male youth by a guru who appears to have a colossal shadow side involving an insatiable sexual appetite.]

Moreno’s Response: Timothy Conway again mentioned the fraudulent “pedophile” claims (which I already discussed and refuted in-depth on my website).

Jagadeesan is not comparing Ex-Devotees to demons. He simply pointed out that every Avatar has been attacked by contrary forces. With Rama, the contrary forces happened to be Ravana and various demons. With Krishna, the contrary forces happened to be various individuals and demons. With Jesus, the contrary forces happened to be various individuals. With Sathya Sai Baba, the contrary forces happen to be various individuals. Timothy Conway is twisting Jagadeesan’s words and misrepresenting them in an apparent effort to incite susceptible purveyors of malice and hatred. Timothy Conway’s intellectually dishonest behavior really stinks and is completely bereft of any integrity whatsoever.

After whining about Jagadeesan comparing critics to demons, what did Timothy Conway do? He turned around and accused Jagadeesan of being “demonic”! After accusing Jagadeesan of being “demonic”, Timothy Conway said he rather not “imply” that Jagadeesan was demonic (after he already did). Then, in another twist, after accusing Jagadeesan of being “demonic”, Timothy Conway ranted (in his signature pseudo-spiritual style) about Sathya Sai Baba being an “ONGOING EVIL”. Don’t expect PhD Timothy Conway to substantiate his claim that Sathya Sai Baba “appears to have a colossal shadow side involving an insatiable sexual appetite”. He doesn’t.


[JJ:] The Puranas and the history of all great souls are replete with stories of those who, once close, than turned against the Divinity they worshipped!

[TC: I could counter that history is replete with stories of sycophantic “yes-men” who came to the defense of people like Hitler, Stalin, Pol Pot, Pinochet, and many others involved in ongoing atrocities.]

Moreno’s Response: Far be it for Timothy Conway to speak when he is one of those “yes-men” he loves to criticize. One will notice how Timothy Conway (sounding very much like an extremist and fanatic) tried to equate Sathya Sai Baba with “Hitler, Stalin, Pol Pot, Pinochet and many others involved in ongoing atrocities”. This is not surprising considering that Timothy Conway even compared the sexual abuse allegations to alien abductions, believing that if Sathya Sai Baba possesses genuine paranormal powers, he could have molested alleged victims on alternate dimensions (Ref: Conway Email No. 10)!


[JJ:] How many of you are aware of the vile accusations hurled against the Buddha and Ramakrishna Parama-hamsa, during their respective lifetimes. And even on Jesus Christ even to this present day and age? How many are aware that like Bhagawan Baba (to avoid the chance of worse scandal) these great souls – (Buddha, Rama-krishna Paramahamsa and Jesus) surrounded themselves with only male devotees! And because of this, lower minds concocted their own filth and scandalized these great souls in the one area where no proof is possible, and no amount of denial can wash away the taint of evil, when once the accusation is made!

[TC: Jagadeesan again is speaking in a most irrational way. Jesus, the Buddha and Ramakrishna did not have dozens or hundreds of people stepping forth with persuasively similar allegations of sexual molestation.]

Moreno’s Response: Muktananda, Gurumayi, Ramakrishna (who was accused of being a homosexual and a child molester by Jeffrey Kripal: Ref), Neem Karoli Baba, Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, Chogyam Trunpa, Yogi Bhajan, Swami Satchidananda, Dalai Lama (see “Stripping the Gurus”), Sri Chinmoy, Mother Teresa (see John M. Swomley’s critical book), Meher Baba (who was/is often attacked by Christian Fundamentalists as a deceiver and false messiah), Yogananda, Jiddu Krishnamurthi, Swami Premananda, Jesus (the Gospel of St. Mark debate that some believe described a homosexual relationship between Jesus and a youth he raised from the dead and the Mary Magdalene debate), Mohammad, Ammachi (quite a few people have leveled numerous allegations against her) and others have been embroiled in controversy (including allegations of sexual impropriety). It seems to me that Timothy Conway has a self-serving, belief-preserving habit of naming only those gurus who do not seem to have controversies surrounding them and uphold them as life-savers to keep his faith afloat.

As the reader will notice, Timothy Conway here embellished his former number of alleged victims from “dozens” to “dozens or hundreds”. Soon, Timothy Conway will again embellish his numbers to “hundreds to thousands”. This type of shameless exaggeration is indicative of a chronic propagandist who lacks credibility and integrity.


[JJ:] It is perhaps because of this that Islam requires 4 eyewitnesses before a person can be charged for behaviour against norms of morality!

[TC: Jagadeesan may not be aware that, at this point in time, a few dozen signed affidavits have been made by a growing multitude of eyewitnesses — young men and boys — all willing to state their case in a court of law, that Baba has sexually abused them.]

Moreno’s Response: Timothy Conway again resorted to his faulty “sworn affidavits” argument. This time around, however, Timothy Conway exaggerated and claimed that alleged victims were willing to go on record (even in a court of law) and say that Sai Baba molested them as minors. Where did Timothy Conway get this information from? Although Timothy Conway told me he got his “sworn affidavits” information from the India Today article and Glen Meloy (on whose word he blindly accepted), it is peculiar that Jens Sethi and Hans de Kraker were adults when they had their alleged unsavory experiences with Sai Baba (not “minors” or “boys” as spuriously alleged by Conway). No one has been able to produce even one affidavit from any alleged victim. Since 1993, no alleged victim has ever filed a court case against Sai Baba in India, thus refuting the claim that alleged victims said (and where did they make that claim to begin with?) they would testify in a court of law that they were “molested as minors”. As discussed earlier, Timothy Conway’s unsupported claims of “child molestation” have been refuted in my article entitled False Pedophile Allegations Against Sathya Sai Baba. The main thrusts to Timothy Conway’s arguments are based on stories and Anti-Sai propaganda that he read and blindly believed.


[JJ:] But these great beings prevailed; for dirt cannot taint the purity of the sky! Dirt flung upwards will ultimately descend on the perpetrators of the filth and the sky continues unperturbed continuing to offer its beauty to the accusers!! Bhagawan Baba has declared as such (refer earlier quotation).

[TC: Jagadeesan is here merely issuing idle threats that “dirt” will come back upon those flinging it. As long as we’re talking about “karmuppance,” let’s compassionately remember that covering up criminal pedophilia brings its own terrible karmic retribution. We critics are actually trying to spare the Jagadeesans and Shahs and Goldsteins long, stiff jail sentences (and, ironically, possible sexual abuse from male inmates and prison guards!) for being accomplices in these ongoing crimes committed by Baba.]

Moreno’s Response: More fanatic and absurd argumentation by Timothy Conway. Dr Conway should be more concerned about “compassionately” sparing the “hundreds” to “thousands” of alleged victim’s mothers and fathers from “stiff jail sentences” (and “possible sexual abuse from inmates and prison guards”) for being accomplices in alleged crimes they all (without exception) have thus far ignored. Once again, why should Jagadeesan, Goldstein or Shah make complaints when the alleged parents to alleged victims haven’t made any? This is the question that Timothy Conway should be asking, but doesn’t.


[JJ:] If Jesus who had 11 disciples, had in his last moments, one who denied Him and another who betrayed Him, can one imagine what one can expect of the Sai phenomena, who has millions who revere Him! Only a little intelligence is required to ascertain the TRUTH.

[TC: Again, Jagadeesan is using juvenile, faulty logic here, and is also maliciously comparing Baba’s critics to so many Judases. Almost all of these critics want nothing to do with money or fame in exposing Baba’s ongoing molesting of children. They simply, compassionately want to SAVE THE CHILDREN AND YOUNG MEN!]

Moreno’s Response: Timothy Conway, take your shrieking and foaming-at-the-mouth “SAVE THE CHILDREN AND YOUNG MEN” campaign to the alleged victim’s parents who have all (without exception) refused to speak or act on behalf of their alleged children’s molestations. Far be it for critics to posture themselves as moral guardians and stand in place of parents who have never (ever) claimed (even once) that Sathya Sai Baba molested his/her “child”. Critics exhibit all the behaviors of hatred, vindictiveness, anger, obsessiveness and mental instability. Critic’s caustic rodomontades are actually documented psychological behaviors described as the ‘apostate syndrome’.


[JJ:] Has any living being on earth, in his own lifetime motivated so much good and godly work for the needy and manifested so much transformation in millions — to go beyond self and to serve the poor, sick and the needy?

[TC: This point by Jagadeesan highlights the tragedy we have here: namely that Sathya Sai Baba HAS been a force for so much good. But, in what appears to be the most amazing “Jekyll and Hyde” story in the history of humanity, it now seems quite clear that Baba also has a raging sexual appetite, and he psychologically coerces and manipulates young men and boys to satisfy this sexual hunger.]

Moreno’s Response: It is only a “Jekyll and Hyde Story” for those who blindly believe the gossipy rumors they hear and read on the internet. Notice how Timothy Conway used the weasel-word “seems” to describe his allegation that Sathya Sai Baba has a “raging sexual appetite”. Timothy Conway attempts to psychologically coerce and manipulate readers with disinformation and propaganda to satisfy his hunger and rapacious appetite for gossip and pseudo-intellectual tripe. Timothy Conway sincerely believes the allegations are true, just as he sincerely believes that Sathya Sai Baba may molest alleged victims like aliens are alleged to do through abductions. Rather pathetic and laughable, if you ask me.


[JJ:] Would anyone need to set-up such a huge worldwide edifice of selfless service and human values, would anyone have to set up free Super Specialty Hospitals and free Universities and schools in India and around the world and give life saving water to the poor and the needy, to merely seek opportunities to indulge in the type of filth that is being passed around?

[TC: Jagadeesan’s structuring of his question, “Would anyone need to… Would anyone have to…” is mis-leading. Beyond Jagadeesan’s misdirection ploy, the simple fact, most unfortunately, is that Baba, regardless of his “needing” or “having to,” IS molesting boys and young men. Jagadeesan also does not address the serious charges made in “The Findings” written/compiled by David and Faye Bailey, charges also made in other writings and oral venues, that the Supere Specialty Hospital is NOT as “wonderful” as it has been hyped, nor has the water project been anywhere near as “successful” as claimed.]

Moreno’s Response: Timothy Conway is again repeating his fraudulent “child molestation” claims (which I already discussed and refuted in-depth on my website).

I have provided detailed responses to David Bailey’s The Findings. One will notice how Timothy Conway (in true pseudo-intellectual style) cited David Bailey to undermine and spread doubts about Sathya Sai Baba’s Super Specialty Hospital and Water Project.

Sathya Sai Baba’s prestigious Super Speciality Hospitals have received tremendous amounts of positive feedback from many high ranking Indian officials and doctors from all around the world (Refs: 0102030405). Unlike PhD Timothy Conway’s pseudo-intellectual references to propaganda, the references I cited were published in newspapers and are verifiable.

Similarly, Sathya Sai Baba’s water projects were all successful and have received a tremendous amount of praise from high ranking Indian officials throughout India. The first drinking water project (completed in 1996) supplies water to 1.2 million people in 730 villages in the drought-prone Anantapur district in Andhra Pradesh. The second drinking water project, completed in 2004, supplies water to Chennai (formerly known as Madras) through a rebuilt waterway named “Sathya Sai Ganga Canal’. The Chennai water drinking project was praised by Tamil Nadu Chief Minister, M Karunanidhi. Karunanidhi said that although he is an atheist, he differentiated between good spiritual leaders like Sathya Sai Baba and fake godmen. The third drinking water project, expected to be completed supplied water from the Godavari River to half a million people living in five hundred villages in East and West Godavari Districts. Other completed water projects include the Medak District Project benefiting 450,000 people in 179 villages and the Mahbubnagar District Project benefiting 350,000 people in 141 villages. In January 2007, the Sri Sathya Sai Central Trust revealed that it would undertake another drinking water project in Latur, Maharashtra (Refs: 01020304). Again, unlike PhD Timothy Conway’s pseudo-intellectual references to propaganda, the references I cited were published in newspapers and are verifiable.

Timothy Conway blindly believes everything negative he hears about Sathya Sai Baba and trivializes, doubts and dismisses all the good he hears about Sathya Sai Baba (clearly pointing to his Anti-Sai agenda). Instead of citing The Findings, why couldn’t PhD Timothy Conway put his scholarly researching skills to good use and actually substantiate David Bailey’s claims with verifiable references from credible media sources? I’ll tell you why: Timothy Conway is a propagandist who uses his ‘PhD’ title as a distraction and ploy to push his rhetoric, pseudo-morality and pseudo-spirituality against Sathya Sai Baba, Sai Devotees and Sai Proponents.


[JJ:] Are the vibuthi manifestations occuring spontaneously in hundreds of homes around the world, outpouring of kum kum, honey etc, of people’s illness being cured and lives being saved by merely an application of SAI Vibuthi, a touch of His hand, or a prayer to Him, so much a figment of the imagination OR is this not the greatest manifestation of Divine Power that the world has ever witnessed?

[TC: This is a false argument. I myself and numerous other concerned critics grant that amazing and beautiful things are happening around or through the name/form of Sathya Sai Baba. Jagadeesan sets up a false choice limited by the “either-or” Aristotelian logic: he’s trying to force us into thinking that just because amazing things are happening around Sai that THEREFORE Baba must be God and that none of the improprieties are happening. He and other Sai apologists also beg the question as to the source of the miracles around Baba. Is it the personality of the Divine avatar Sathya Narayana Raju doing all these things? Or is it the power of God utilizing the name/form of Sathya Sai? For that matter, it could be Sai Baba of Shirdi who is doing these things through Sathya Narayana Raju, and the latter personality has a shadow side of out-of-control sexual hunger.]

Moreno’s Response: If the world-wide miracles and manifestations attributed to Sathya Sai Baba are true (which even Barry Pittard believes to be the case: Ref), these events would be unprecedented in known history or myth and indicative of a spiritual power that one simply cannot attribute to an ordinary person or yogi. For a small glimpse into these international manifestations, see:

Shirdi Sai Baba never manifested miracles and materializations on a scale as vast and as profuse as those attributed to Sathya Sai Baba. So it is rather amusing when Timothy Conway attempts to argue that Sathya Sai Baba is a “contaminated channel” for Shirdi Sai Baba or that Shirdi Sai Baba is working these miracles through Sathya Sai Baba.

Another important argument that I think Jagadeesan made was: If Sathya Sai Baba possesses this type of paranormal power, then his actions (no matter how enigmatic) cannot be equated with those or an ordinary human being. Of course, Hindu scriptures (which Timothy Conway is a strong promoter and believer) talks about numerous perceived atrocities and questionable behaviors associated with Avatars. For example, Parasurama, the ax-wielding Avatar, was said to have slaughtered every adult Kshatriya on Earth twenty-one times (filling five lakes with blood) because he was filled with revenge at his father’s murder. Instead of condemning Parasurama as a blood-thirsty murderer, he is hailed as an incarnation of Vishnu that relieved the Earth of sinful, destructive and irreligious individuals. Hindu scriptures state that no matter how seemingly immoral or inappropriate an Avatar’s behavior might be, it serves a purpose that humans cannot comprehend. Avatar’s status are determined by the opulences and powers they manifest.

I think the only person who is a “contaminated channel” for love and light is Dr. Timothy Conway.

1 Response to "Gerald Joe Moreno Responds To PhD Timothy Conway About Jegathesan Letter"

I deal routinely with perturbed individuals, especially males. A problem with the male psyche in the West is the fact that a lot of men “don’t feel like men”. It is easy to diagnose this with the help of Applied Kinesiology Muscle Testing. This problem is an effect of our western culture where women tend more and more to become dominant, and fathers, or father figures, are often absent. The result is a chronic state of anxiety, insecurity and low self-esteem affecting the limbic system of the brain. In order to alleviate this discomfort, people will resort to a variety of substances like drugs, food, and behaviours like sex, as well as attempting to build up their self-esteem mostly with the help of the left hemisphere through various types of rationalisations and the help of the right hemisphere through the temporary creation of illusions of all sorts. Of course, this does not work. If people followed Vedantic practices, as advocated by Swami, they would learn to transcend these faulty mechanisms and see the world, and themselves, differently. However, the main part of the problem is this powerful underlying need for men to prove themselves as such, like chimpanzees who are trying to stay at the top of their tree in order to remain alpha males, or alternatively to find a tree to climb. The internet presents a wonderful opportunity to do this; if ever there was a fertile jungle, this is it! I don’t think that you will ever be successful in changing the mindset of your favourite chimps as they no doubt feel very secure at the top of the trees they have chosen. Swami was for these people a golden opportunity to acquire this supposed security that they had been searching for, and Swami cut their trees! Poor guys!
