I am not your Guru

The origins of the imperative, "know thyself", are lost in the sands of time, but the age-old examination of human consciousness continues here.

Tony Robbins - I am not your Guru

https://youtu.be/QooPH8e3pFo

He was in Australia, Sydney recently (September) and a couple of people I know bought tickets to see this guy at a cost of $5,000 each.

Why we do what we do

These habits will make you rich

Unleash the Power within


and so on

These people make me uneasy and I wonder what if any difference is made to a person, say in a couple of months on or even years later.

Are they fakes and frauds.

It's embarrassing to watch.

Can anyone put a more positive spin on this.

At $5,000 a ticket, so far he has 'performed' for 4 million people so I guess it works for him.

$5,000.00 a ticket? You have your answer right there. I would tell people I'm the reincarnation of Jesus Christ for that kind of money.
Civilization is a ship of fools headed to a one way destination of catastrophe and annihilation, its many captains populated by asshole-idiots that all agree it is unsinkable.

Apparently there is a fire walk people can participate in.

The Fire Walk's benefits are significant to almost all who participate—it helps people overcome fear and take action. So we’ll continue to offer it because it’s a tiny but helpful part of helping people grow. And that is my undying mission.


I watched I am not your Guru on Netflix, all I can say is, proceed with CAUTION, if you must.

As I had mentioned many times it all boils down to that unavoidable existential DOOM within all human beings which drive the majority of humans in a desperate state to seek reliefs in whatever ways that work for them.

This $5,000 in Tony Robbins' exploitation and 'scam' is peanuts compared to what SOME believers are willing to pay within some religions where believers are even prepared to pay with all their assets they have and for some, even their life in exchange for that psychological relief.
Why people are willing part with their $$$ and life is because it has immediate relief, and in the cases of sacrificing their life, they are promised eternal life.

If these people take the trouble [when they can] to understand their own nature and what strings are pulling them within they could make the attempt to use their own initiative to practice their own self-development programs [$$ free] to improve their psychological state without having to pay those large sums or be scammed.
I am a progressive human being, a World Citizen, NOT-a-theist and not religious.
