    Wow old friend, Bruce Lee would have been proud of those moves. I had no idea you were this dangerous! ๐Ÿ™‚ You are the best Vivek and I have certainly enjoyed corresponding with you over the years.

      Be like water, or in this case air! ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks Dub, yes, I’m trouble with a bamboo!

      And like-wise, I consider our now years long friendship one of the internet’s gifts to me. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Vivek note the mention of the Mahatma who stayed in my house with 40 others. He kept pointing to me as how we should conduct ourselves, as I had a wife and daughter. I kept thinking …. you know he doesn’t know all of my discrepancies. When I asked if he was really going to eat that white rice instead of my superb brown rice, he laughed and said hey I was a bar fly and woman chaser in Delhi before I was found by divine light mission.

    They did not go much into tantra as everyone was always under the watchful eye of the security forces. We all know what happened to Maharishi in Oregon.

    A couple of the Mahatmas were discovered taking some of the initiates to the next level however and were promptly sent back to India! ๐Ÿ™‚ Those were great times and my life changed forever at that point.

    I am having trouble now leaving a live link, never experienced this before.

    There is a pic here of my little 15 year old Satguru!

    Vivek this is just awesome.

    The structured strictured world needs exactly this.

    Is there any way to e-mail you to talk more?

      Hey Tero, glad to hear it resonated. And I of course agree! We need more unperformance, all around.

      You can contact me @ vivekchaturvedi at yahoo com

      Look forward to it…thanks for sharing.

    I was wondering if you have noticed any change on the wordpress text buttons? I no longer have a word paste button and it is difficult to paste a live link anymore. You have to switch back and forth from visual to text.

    Great talk. My brain has been going too fast since I watched it. Maybe break-fast. I was just thinking about confuse. Con-fuse …maybe I would prefer to be pro-fuse. Wow, my head is spinning…be back soon

      Ahhhaaahh….nice Paul. Break Fast was always a curious one.

      Even (!!!) Fasting (Slowing???)….

      The rabbit hole is deep in deed and word ๐Ÿ™‚
