[Editor’s Note: This is not a normal post, but rather an expression of concern. It may not be entirely cohesive. But I believe there is a hugely imbalanced, deeply disturbed, and mind-reformed group of people gathering together tomorrow in the Albany area. Their leader will most likely be absent but he – although deeply in trouble and seeking to escape from it – will still exert total and perhaps final control over some of them. Probably nothing will happen, perhaps he will set a time bomb to go off later, or a calamity might occur. I sense he knows the end of his berserk control over his slaves is nearing an end; how it will end for his slaves is anybody’s guess. It seems pretty clear to me how it will end for him – if he cannot escape blame by sacrificing one or more of his slaves – it will end for Keith in a snivel and a whimper.]

IF THE SHIT GOES DOWN
Sticking out tongues:
Will he be a death coach?
In Keith Raniere’s Rational Inquiry, he teaches about good and bad suicide:
Facilitate discussion on the following points: (15 minutes)
Is suicide bad?
Is murder always bad?
Is there-ever a time when the destruction of value on a small scale could build value on a larger scale?
Do students understand the concepts of suicide and murder with regard to good and bad?
Do students understand that destruction on any level is the ultimate crime against humanity?
Do students understand that there are exceptions and the destruction of value on a small scale my actually build value on a larger scale?
Discuss the following questions with your group to spur thought; challenge the assumption:
Can you think of anything that is counter survival and/or destroys value that is good?
Can you think of anything that is pro survival and builds value that is bad?
People killed for his beliefs?

Allison Mack said on her blog “My mentor, Keith, once gave me a lesson on how to listen, truly listen, almost in a meditative way. He taught me how to hear the euphony of the world. More often than not I am spinning in my head consumed with thoughts about what are others are thinking of me, how I can do better and what I’m going to eat for lunch. The noise in my head is so loud that I can’t hear anything other than the feedback bouncing off the inside of my skull. He taught me to close my eyes, tame my thoughts and really listen… Suddenly the world sings and becomes symphonic in pattern and texture. We can take what we experience and make it into art. So it stands to reason that the more deeply I experience existence, the better artist I will be. The Source teaches that and it comes from what Keith shares with his students, taking them on a journey to that depth of one’s life experience and expression. When I saw this video, I remembered experiencing the magnificence of sitting still long enough to listen – to hear the world around me. From this stillness comes a freedom – because that voice in my head now seems irrelevant. And so the concert has begun…
