On behalf of everyone in the entire and actual spiritual community of non-pretentious douchebags I’d like to give Dr. Stephen Hawking our sincerest apologies for the idiotic, un-evolved interpretation of all the new age BS to hit best seller lists of the last 50 years.
Yes, while Ms. Shirley MacLaine does indeed represent the dangerously and moronically simple-minded interpretation of complicated ancient teachings, which were meant to be passed down to those wise enough to understand them, but has instead been exploited by quacks and half-baked gurus in an attempt to cash in on the public’s desire for easy and absolute answers to life’s big questions, Ms. MacLaine does not in fact represent anyone who is an actual and true spiritual seeker.
I want to clarify that anyone idiotic enough to believe that you simply visualize something and it appears before your eyes or that you “manifest” a disease so other people can take care of you, or that you, and you alone are in total control of every aspect of your life and the universe is an EGOMANIAC and not coming from a spiritual place – NOT AT ALL.
So to recap. Sorry to Professor Hawking for the stolen knowledge getting into the heads of the daft and for him then having hear Ms. MacLaine repeat the watered down New Aged drivel to him as a lame and ridiculous accusation that she clearly was not even aware enough to know was an accusation.
SORRY FROM THE BOTTOM OF OUR HEARTS PROFESSOR HAWKING!
And sorry to Shirley MacLaine – it really has nothing to do with her. I’m sure she’s a wonderful person. This is a comment on how people misuse spiritual ideas by making them too literal and absolute.
Someone mentioned I should give the quote by SM in case some were unaware and upon my investigation found she also believes people who died in the Holocost may have been murderers in a past life. Oye, Vey! Let me clarify something here: WE ARE NOT TO JUDGE! In ancient times the Gods would descend to earth and test mortals by appearing as vagrants in need of help. In other words whatever someone is doing in this incarnation we have no idea why nor is it anything as literal and idiotic as you were murdered so now you are a murderer. I personally think that having a sheltered life of fame and fortune is a vacation life where you probably incur more karma then in nearly any other situation other than being evil. But that can’t be true across the board because the universe is complex and how we interact with it along with our free will and what our energetic patterns are are far too complex for anyone to dicipher other than God. And I really don’t think Shirley MacLaine is qualified here to make such pronouncements about karma. She’s just making a fool of herself and doing a huge disservice to alternative spiritual practices of all kinds.
“Outrage as Shirley MacLaine asks: Were Holocaust victims paying for sins in past lives? (and did ‘her friend’ Stephen Hawking bring his devastating disease on himself?)
She also suggests Stephen Hawking gave himself motor neurone disease
Holocaust victims may have been killers in previous incarnations, she says
Miss MacLaine once insisted that she lived on Atlantis in an earlier life…”
