Lust and light
The debate about The Secret rages on, and it’s getting really fun now. I think people on both sides of the fray, as well as those who fancy themselves to be sitting on the fence, can agree on one thing: All of the criticism that’s coming out isn’t going to even make a dent in the sales of this New-Wage marketing masterpiece. If anything, it will boost them. But I don’t have a stake in it either way.* I’m just having fun with the whole thing.
Yep, I seem to have gotten over my boredom with the topic. I mostly blame Blair Warren, dispenser of Crooked Wisdom, for this. Blair, it seems has recently been given a Universal Law even more powerful than the Law of Attraction: the Law of Extraction, or LOE. Works first time, every time – and no loopholes. Be greedy now!
And speaking of greed, I need to warn y’all about something. There’s a tall, lanky guru named Tilak who seems to have attracted some pretty prominent Law of Attraction fans in recent months. I blogged about him a while back. Rhonda Byrne herself was seen partying with him in Las Vegas during Tilak’s birthday bash last year. (More on that in a moment.) At that time Tilak was one of the darlings of the conspicuously enlightened, including Marcy From Maui, owner of the Powerful Intentions web site. (Powerful intentions are a cornerstone of LOA culture, as I blogged about a few months ago.) Anyway, it seems Tilak got himself in a spot of trouble on the East Coast back in the early 1990s, but hey, no problem, there’s always the West Coast. So that’s where he is now.
Well, the other day I learned from the Guruphiliac blog that poor Tilak is in trouble once again. I wonder how this is going to affect his cozy relationship with Rhonda Byrne, which I learned more about when I went back to Guruphiliac just now. The plot thickens!
I hasten to add that, according to his lawyers, all of the accusations of fraud and sexual shenanigans leveled against Tilak are lies. But I did notice that Marcy From Maui seems to have taken down her bubbly blog posts about Tilak, as well as the birthday bash photos from last November. I imagine she feels pretty let down. I’m sure Joe Sugarman, the BluBlocker Man who, according to Marcy, first brought Tilak to Maui, feels a bit let down too. Maybe these people should have done a little background check before they so enthusiastically welcomed this guy into their inner circle.
And how must poor Rhonda feel?
Anyway, here’s a link to a news story and video of Tilak’s latest troubles.
But remember, his lawyers say it’s all a lie, or at least a big misunderstanding. And lawyers never lie, so I’m sure Tilak will get off. Wait, let me reword that. I am sure he will be exonerated. So you people on the North and South Coasts, get ready. A new guru may be coming to your town soon!
Well, that’s it for now. Keep practicing whichever Universal Law works for you the best. If none of the existing Laws work for you, make up one of your own. Just stay away from tall dark horny guys who have itty-bitty flashlights in their mouths.

But I will disclose that information when and if it becomes applicable. BTW, the "PetSmart coupons" link at the bottom of my blog is there as part of the hit counter. I'm not getting any money for it; I just get to use the hit counter for free. The counter shows new traffic only, beginning on February 22, 2007. Just in case you're wondering.
