AOL USA president plugging for his book and his master!
Michael Fischman who seems has no joy or real laughter left in him, but huge reservoir of ego, after years of manipulation and sick psychological games played on him by his master SriSri, to mold him into a puppet, is now trying to convince us through his book what a great spiritual Master SriSri is. He looks and sounds so fake in his promotional video, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KNza6cG0VQg , like a zombie robot churning out what all brainwashed teachers of SriSri have been trained to tell you. Just another variation of the same theme, i.e. how bad and useless they were before and how SriSri saved them and how wonderful they are now!!
I wonder if in his book, he has written anything about how SriSri would pit him against John Osborne, playing their hatred against each other to his advantage and amusement. I wonder if in it Mickey refers to his numerous affairs, some of them very unethical and inappropriate, using his position of power within AOL (quite common among senior AOL teachers and even some juniors!).
What Mickey cannot hide is his huge ego, having reached acute stage of the illness. In his video and the associated website, stumblingintoinfinity.com, he compares his book to Autobiography of a Yogi and even more:
“Stumbling Into Infinity is part of a long tradition of spiritual memoirs that began with St. Augustine’s Confessions, 1,600 years ago. It joins such books as Paramhansa Yogananda’s Autobiography of a Yogi and Carlos Castaneda’s Teachings of Don Juan, …”
Somewhere else he compares it to “Eat, Pray, Love”!!
“Think of it as the male version of Eat, Pray, Love, along with a healthy dose of Autobiography of a Yogi.’
Even the subtitle reeks of his ego:
“Stumbling Into Infinity: An Ordinary Man in the Sphere of Enlightenment”
No Mickey, not even in a thousand mile radius of enlightenment, not you, nor your fake guru! He only deceives himself by calling his journey a “blossoming of love and devotion.” He has ended up as a totally obsessed man, full of hatred, ambitions, chained in his soul and body, acting like a dog at his master’s feet, fighting for a scrap of bread or some attention from his master. Totally stripped out of any humanity or authenticity, he fancies himself as an inspiration:
“I hope my writings are an inspiration to experience a life of greater truth, fulfillment, and love.”
So sad to see Deepak Chopra writing a praise of this book. Deepak, who of all people, should well know the inner sagas of gurus like Maharishi and Ravi Shankar! And this one, by Carol Kline, made me laugh, her ignorance obvious:
“Ultimately, this book will inspire you to see how much better your life – and the world – can be through meditation, service to others, and deep gratitude.”
Service to others? Which service to others? Mickey lives off AOL income and SriSri and family live off the money they fleece from people in the name of charity! These people are only serving themselves and their own sick egos! Someone should send this blog’s and Klim’s blogs URLs to Deepak and Carol and tell them to educate themselves before helping to promote a sick organization, a sick guru and his sick “president”!
There is no mention of where the proceeds of this book will go to, to AOL coffers or to Mickey, even though one can safely assume it will be to Mickey’s and that the book will be promoted heavily through AOL network. At least let’s be grateful he doesn’t claim the proceeds will go to Taihiti youth, not yet anyway!!
Mickey has been working on this book for years and years. He had to write and re-write it again and again as SriSri was never happy with any version, causing great frustration for Mickey. I wonder if the blessing for it was finally granted now to counteract some of the negative publicity SriSri has been receiving this year.
