Mr. Bradley, you have invited us to share our thoughts here, and I now do so by way of asking you to please shut up. For although you have frequently entertained us and even sometimes given us food for thought, ultimately you are a fraud. I do not mean to imply that you are willfully deceiving us, pretending to have spiritual insight when you do not, for you frequently tell us of your failings. Yet, you continue to blabber on as if this does not matter. It does matter.You can check out Scott's other miscellaneous writings here.
Are there really no genuinely realized teachers who can better instruct us? Are we not wasting our time reading the speculative probings of someone more in the dark than ourselves? Would a genuine teacher please stand up!
Mr. Bradley, it seems that every week you discover a new gate which leads to your theoretical 'transcendence'. And with each new gate we forget the previous one without either you or us having passed through it. Is this really the way to proceed? Are you not really simply deceiving us by turning your project into an end in itself? Not only do you not have an 'answer', you apparently never will.
Admittedly, you tell us you are a mess and that your ramblings are a working through of your own problems. Your honesty is commendable, as is your project of growth. But what makes you think it helps us to be privy to your needs or to your endless attempts to overcome them? By providing an example of such a project, you would likely respond. Fine. The point has been taken. Now maybe it's time you shut up.
