Never Talk Metaphysics With A Journalist

Our culture is relentlessly and cruelly materialist. You really don't want to let it be known you hold with fairies or reincarnation or anything like that- and especially not if you happen to have any sort of public profile.

We come from no place, we go to no place. Charles Darwin rules. "They give birth above a grave" and so on. Stick to that and you're safe. Diverge from the orthodoxy and they'll skin you alive.

William Roache- who I think of as a bit of a twit- allowed an interview to get out of hand the other day. He started talking about his religious beliefs (he used to be a Druid and is now a member of a Californian sect that witters on about Love) and got himself  backed into a corner and made to say he thought rape victims were paying off their karma from previous lives. It's not what he really meant- but try being subtle when you're in your 80s and not very bright to begin with and your interviewer is not the least bit interested in anything but stitching you up.. Roache is now undergoing his own karmic adjustment. Silly Billy.

There is a reason why certain teachings are kept under wraps. Pearls before swine and all that.
