Were you around when he was alive? He was kind of before my time. I read the book probably in 2006, before I even started the DP.

There are people in this movement now who I would consider a wee bit too self centered, but maybe with some distance I might be able to appreciate what they have to say a little better.

I thought his advice was good, and practical. I don't know much about his family life. I know he ran for president a couple of times, too, but honestly I don't know that much about him personally.

I do recall reading somewhere that there was quite a after he died, with evidence of him having misused funds or some such thing.

I do agree with what you say at the end: I've come to believe that the idea would only have any long-term merit with a more spiritually enlightened people.

All art is only done by the individual. The individual is all you ever have, and all schools only serve to classify their members as failures. E.H.
