I'd like to know something from any SY reading this, in the light of
Henry's recent experience. See, I had this notion that those who
truly and sincerely believe they have found God, would live
according to the principles of whatever religion they had chosen,
being secure in the knowledge that they know God, and live and act
along those lines. I suppose I would expect to see some kind of
security. Even serenity.
I don't see that in a single SY. I see unbearable stress, anger and
frequent outbursts of rage. I realise I'm not seeing the whole
picture - perhaps there are Yogis who really do 'live the dream' and
are very content. But I don't see it in the SYs I have met, nor do I
see it in SYs who post here - or on the other SY forums.
Care to comment, jleow? You seem particularly sarcastic, stressed
out and desperate to have us 'return'. Can't you move on without us?
Do we challenge your beliefs to the extent that you have to come
here and belittle someone who only sought to tell his story? Where's
the bliss and joyfulness you're supposed to be full of?
I'd be interested in your views.

> SY has a strong tendency to cocoon its members, insulating them from the bad vibes of the evil world. SY developed what they call SY culture (based mostly on pious literature and some constructed lineages of spiritual luminaries). They are supposed to stick to that Sahaja culture. RThat´s why the cultural level of an average SY is so surprisingly low. Indeed they developed a suspicious tabooizing attitude against contemporary as well as classic culture. Culturaly as an insulated community they develop all the phobias of extreme insularity.
So cocooned that I laughingly tell people I completely missed the 80s. Nearly all 80s movies, music, TV shows, best-sellers (fiction, nonfiction), works of art, etc., which is old news to the rest of the world, is new to me. Co-workers talk with nostalgia about a certain band or movie, and I cannot contribute to the conversation, as I had spent the better part of a decade protecting myself from the bad vibes of the great unwashed (unrealized) masses.
On the upside, most classical music--at least the ancient stuff, from composers like Mozart, Vivaldi and Bach--was considered "Sahaj." So much of my long commute to work, back then, was spent listening to Boston's public radio station, WGBH, with its great host, the late Robert J. Lurtsema. I got a wonderful education in classical music, though I suppose I'd have listened to the show (Morning pro Musica) sahaj or no sahaj.
> All this leads to progressive autism, because it splits individual from their culutral traditional backgrounds (now you´re a born again SY, baptized in the the Waters of Mother Kundlaini) and try to root them in a low and "new" culture called Sahaja culture, biased, partial, onedimensional and poor. Not to mention it has that constant element of fear of all that is not SY.

> But people with a true Kundalini ignition are not unconnected from their culture. They understand that real culture and Kundalini are not in opposite planes, on the contrary. A real Kundalini experience is highly integrative, socialising, not racist, and not at all anti-intellectual. SY is a Kundalinis energy kidnapper, twisting it to their own means: castles, power and megalomania.
