Been wondering whether that charismatic teacher is actually suffering from delusions of grandeur? Try looking for some of these clues:
What Enlightenment is not
Dwelling on a higher plane of existence
Believing oneself or anyone else to be a perfected being
Believing a person can communicate with or can be in touch with anything outside the realm of the 5 senses or personal consciousness
Some Signs of Delusion
Lack of empathy or compassion
Feeling superior, being overly critical, or judgmental of others
Mistaking personal truth for universal truth
Inability to control temper
Being a slave to addictions- sex, drugs, alcohol, etc.
Mistaking the forms and rituals of any practice for spiritual attainment
Stayed tuned for future additions…..
