This whole discussion is soooooo childish.
I don’t need to be explained who did what, who said what to whom.
I can feel for myself and decide for myself.
What does it serve? It serves nothing but seperation and distrust.
I hoped Michael would NOT start reacting on it but helas, yes there we go again…
As the last line in Plato’s cave revisited:
‘Accept the other despite their appearance or past’…
A very long way to go before True Compassion is understood amongst some of the players here.
Let it go please and ‘believe in yourself’! Then you don’t need to re-act but you act from your deepest inner wisdom with love.October 8, 2006 at 11:59 am #18499
Agreed, I was going to post something similar. But, let me add a bit more.
I would learn more if, rather than attacking each other’s personality/lineage/skills, they simply present what they have and dispel rumors about what they are or are not.
It seems to me that if someone is secure in the relationship they have with their teacher, they do not need to denigrate the relationship someone else has with their teacher.
For example, just like romantic relationships – if I am happy with my wife, does that mean no one else can be happy unless they are with a woman exactly like my wife? No – we all need different things from our teachers, just like we all need different things from our life partners. So, I am happy that Sean Denty has what he wants with his teachers.
I am very happy with what I have with Michael. Craig’s experience with Sifu L is that “He projected an incredible amount of chi that felt like a very strong dose of electricity to open up certain points to help us with our meditation.” My experience with Michael is that he opens up a vast multi-dimensional space. My feelings doing the Kan and Li meditaions are not buzzings and colors, but range from deep, multi-dimensional fluid/pointed shiftings in being, to simple re-orientations with my past experiences.

i totally agree with both you both wendy and chris.
whos right whos wrong? no – one, because the individual experience is different for each.
chris, i like what you said about your experience. it sounds like appreciating what a teacher has to offer and ultimately taking responsibility for ourselves and the way we learn from the teacher.
