    I had to stop listening. I really tried but the cadence was too jolting. The, “Who is this,” “What did He/She/They do” was so loud and read with a cadence of explosive culmination repeatedly for at least ten minutes. it was just too much. I am sure the content was great, but I had to rip out the headphones and could not finish. Sorry,.

    Cant agree with Pish. The talk is great. I did nt find it annoying at all. Great video.

    Wanted to say I think I have found answers to the big questions (where did I come from etc.) and I have found bliss. Try this:

    I enjoyed this presentation. I was very interested in learning about amazing individuals and organizations and what they contribute. I thought it was uplifting. I felt gratitude.

    I would agree that organized religion meets some very basic human needs and that is why it exists.

    John mentions the scripture in Luke 17: 20-22 KJV, “The Kingdom of God is within you.” John said, “I’m OK pointing at any Guru who points you back into yourself. All great Gurus do this.” I appreciate that remark.
