In reply to: mac - 2 Jun 2001 's message, "The Bramble Farm" on 16:51

I communicated with the author (extensively) of the site a couple of years ago as I felt he made many inaccurate statements. As time went on he became more an more unstable with our communications calling me all sorts of names. (Although he sometimes was polite and academic and other times he was plain out of his mind.) I didn't mind his cryptic writing style until he went off the deep end: he took isolated words from one of my emails and put them together into sentences so that I sounded like "Satan". He then accused me of being controlled by you know who.

He claims to be a leader of a group in Sweden and claims to have translated Autobiography of a Yogi into Swedish a number of years ago. When some of his group actually like the translated book - "he set them straight."


He mostly uses Christian books for his main support materials including books like the "Gospel According to St. Thomas." So he is not lilekly to be from a fundamentalist Christian viewpoint. However, he also has a good background in other spiritual teachings from an academic standpoint and is knowledgeable about many subjects. I did get to study (especially the New Testament) as a result of our communications. Also, I found out the advantages of computer Bible search engines, which I believe are the favorite tool of many an "expert".

Just by chance yesterday I came across all the hard copies of my correspondence with him. (I am moving to a new place so I am cleaning up a bit.) I felt relieved after throwing them into the trash bin.
