That was back when he was a hottie! :P

He was ripped, no doubt about it! I wonder if his tiers system accommodates for 4, 6, and 8 packs. Or no packs.]]>

The most problematic aspect of Wilber for a lot of people is his continuing advocacy and acceptance of people with abusive and shady track records (Cohen, Gafni). I think, though, he may be thinking that more evolved people need to help those who are less evolved, to bring them up to speed. In his book on Trump, he says we need to show love, respect, and understanding to Trump supporters rather than ridicule and blame. Sounds like a tall order, but I have to admit, the ridicule and blame thing isn’t working all that well]]>

In fairness, Ramana Maharshi was photographed shirtless way more often, and his pecs look less awakened :evil:

Hahaha, that is an incredibly awesome observation!]]>
