Alex Horn: “I’m ALWAYS ‘in essence’ — can’t you see that?”

 

 

“What made you decide to become a teacher?”

A: “I was BORN to be a teacher! It was no accident or mere coincidence that [some notorious guru] died the night I was born. When I heard about this, I knew right then and there that I was born to take his place – MEANT to be – DESTINED to be – another great leader and Fisher of Men – Self-observing, Self-remembering, Self-evolving No. 4 Man – Balanced Man – Conscious Man – REAL Man – Teacher of ‘the Work’ and all the great religions, teachers and teachings in the world!”

 

 

“Did you ever have a regular job?”

A: “I was a garbage man!”

"What was your father like?"

A: "He was a kind and gentle rabbi."

 

 

“Have you ever tried hallucinogenic drugs?  LSD, hash, peyote or mescaline?”

A: “No.”

 

 

“What do you think of the Beatles and their great new album?" (Abbey Road)

A: “What are the Beatles compared to Bach?”

 

 

“What happened to your teeth…?”

A: “I had to get them pulled out and wear dentures.”

 

 

“Why?”

A: “My dentist said I had ‘self-cleaning teeth' and didn’t have to brush like other people did.”

 

 

“You only believed that yarn because it made you feel special!”
