most spiritual teachers are phony

Castaneda was a phony. Most spiritual teachers are full of shit. But I have met Victor Sanchez and he was very genuine, wise, and humble.

What you say about gut and stomach I would say about the eastern and western paths. The eastern path is gut centered and the western path is heart centered. But this has nothing to do with being or not being concerned with others. Rather it has to do with how much emphasis is put on embodiment.
