Abandoning sufism, and entering the path of enlightenment…watch out: sufi devils like Gurdjieff/Gold may try to stop you
Abandoning sufism, and entering the path of enlightenment…
This material is from a new book on the history of sufism. But it makes depressing reading: it is almost impossible to figure out a rational strategy for sufism. Everything is confused, disinfo, and the whole subject is plagued by con men, and insidious figures. In a way Gurdjieff gave the game away: a field of devils.
Anyway I recomment staying away from sufism. It is a trap for non-Moslems especially. As this article shows, after forty years of New Age sufism, the subject is as obscure as before.
And figures like EJ Gold (and many others) are lying in wait to rip you off. The path of enlightenment is no guarantee: rogue sufis (like Gold) have fun invultuating the unwary. You can fail to find out, but one thing is clear, if you reach enlightenment you will find out first who is trying to program your unconscious.
The problem with sufism is that there is too much spiritual energy mongering, the barack game. But the vultures sufism and the thievesw of baraka make the game pointless.
The path of enlightenment is not about spiritual energy: it is condition of transformation via understanding that can’t be ripped off.
