Oh, thank you El, that was nice of you to admit.

To be serious, though, there is a part
inside everyone which is perfect and
needs no teaching.

>So Kundalini has silenced the voice of your inner criticism and self-doubt?
>You're completely sure of that? (El asks rather provokingly).

I'm not writing this reply for your benefit,
as you have already decided how you want to
see me and no amount of verbalizing from
my side can change how you want to see me
or convince you of anything other
than what you already are convinced of.

But this is for those others out there who
may be curious about what I mean.

It's like this:
Inner criticism and self doubt
as in "Can I do this ? Can I manage ?
What if it tuns out wrong, what will happen
then ?" etc etc does still exist in the mind,
but it is not a part of me.
I sit back and watch it, but I do not
see it as "me".
I see it as irrelevant, ornamentations
of the mind.
Thus, for all intents and purposes,
the voices of self doubt and old
criticism is stilled.

It does, however,
 not mean one is faultless in the eyes of
ohers or
has no need of listening to the ones
that are your teachers, as you imply.
It merely means letting go of self hatred and
low confidence.

>That wouldn't
>be a cause for celebration in my case --

No, but letting go of self hatred and
self pity might.

>I'd probably become insufferably
>arrogant (even worse than I already am, LOL) without the counsel of my
>faithful allies, inner criticism and self-doubt.

Well, it is good that you see yourself
in this.

><< I am I and you are you, >>
>I am the walrus,

Hmmm... if you want to make that a tad more
insulting, I suggest you put a :P
emoticon afterwards, as it implies you are
sticking your tongue out at them.

But then again, that does tend to make you
look more childish, so maybe it's not such
a good idea.
