You know what, dor and AVC -- I apologize for my comments. I was feeling bad all of yesterday for imposing my beliefs onto others. Everybody's experiences and circumstances are different, so there is no right or wrong, everybody's right
As for the arguments for and against Dr. Hawkins...it will never be settled. Proponents will always find evidence for him, critics will always find evidence against him, our parroting of these arguments doesn't change a thing
Since this thread has already taken this turn, no point lamenting it
As a better idea, I'm hoping we can sticky up a new thread for links/resources pertaining to various spiritual teachers (maybe a post dedicated to each?) where we can all submit useful links or quotes or information. Not sure how it would work, though: perhaps the more technologically-savvy people can help out.
