People are prone to make a lot of assumptions, sometimes very incorrect ones.
In 1976 at the age of 13 when the state was in fact trying to brainwash me and train me and groom me, I happened to be one of the very few people to
stand right up and accuse it of such and to not sit back down and roll over.
I am not going to get in to the many battles or sacrifices I made in order to do that.
In part because those battles and sacrifices have not ended and likely will not as long as I inhabit this dimension and realm.
Banished from school at the age of 14 by mutual agreement between the State and my Parents, neither having any hope at being able to effect my
thinking and gain control over me, after both had exhausted every remedy at their disposal only to find my resolve always greater than theirs, I have
walked my own path and followed the beat of my own drum and fought the government every step of the way, the Powers that Be on occassion, and even
some things most people would have trouble believing exist.
Is Brian going to help train and groom me for something?
Surely you jest!
Those are fighting words, those are the words of a would be Master looking for a would be slave.
Brian has sought to establish a sort of primacy that I for one don't believe he has enough depth to him yet to wear the mantle of.
He might want to look at this as a learning experience and an opportunity to grow.
Bottom line is enlightment can't be taught, can't be groomed, can't be trained, it can only be achieved through observation, awareness of all that
exists around you, and self realization.
If it's not natural, if it doesn't occur naturally, then it's not natural, it's instilled, instilled through grooming and training and who ever is
doing the grooming and training is always looking for one thing and that's people to listen to them, obey them, and praise them, and follow them.
It's one thing to share experiences with people, it's another to offer them advice you consider helpful, it's another thing too, to say, you know I
am not sure about this but I think...or maybe, or I wonder...
When you start dishing out absolutes though you really ought to be absolutely sure what you are saying is correct.
