Were you following him? Well that's absurd....why would you want to follow a person you know nothing about other than what he writes online? It's one thing to be impressed by his teachings, but what does it even mean "follow"? Maybe next time you, and people like you who are disppointed by this very fallible human being, will learn to follow your own selves instead of a guru.
And furthermore, I am relieved to see Steve reacting like this. All these years he seemed to be perfect. He rarely ever admitted making mistakes or never seemed to have sympathy for poor slobs like me who are basically run by their heart--he made it sound like everything should be easy. In his blog post, though, he categorically admits his fallibility and embraces it, like a human being.
Maybe he's the one that needed the growth more than anyone else here. Maybe he had to pretend to be perfect as part of his path to growth. He obviously just wants to be loved, just anybody else. Wasn't that always obvious from all his attention seeking articles?
