4) Darrick Evenson lies about Daheshism. FALSE. I may "add" things
to Daheshism that I think are true, but I don't knowingly "lie" about
Well there we have it. I think that pretty much says it all. I think I can see the banner that is carried by the Daheshist community as coming into rather noble focus here. In reading the welcome page on Daheshville, they pretty clearly state that all they wish to do is preserve the name, legacy and teachings of Dr. Dahesh as closely as possible. I can respect that.
It is pretty clear that Darrick on the other hand wants to add to Daheshism whatever he wants to add. Whether it is really "Daheshism" or not. According to Darrick, if Dr. Dahesh didn't specifically say something is "wrong", then apparently it is "right" and anything
goes. By Darrick's own admission, he doesn't "lie" about Daheshism, he just "adds" things. So whether they are actually true or not, let's just call these additions "Daheshism". Because Darrick says so? Does this make any sense?
No wonder Daheshists are upset with him.
Spiritual belief systems (whatever those are to you) obviously require a degree of insight and introspection beyond the basics. The filling in of the gaps is the measure of our growth and our character. Can every permutation of interpretation of spiritual thought be written down to avoid confusion? No certainly not.
Darrick's involvement in the porn industry is shockingly well documented (not the least of which by Darrick's own admissions). And the reasoning to Darrick as to why involvement in the porn community is acceptable? He justifies his active involvement in porn because some of Dr. Dahesh's books had paintings of nude or semi-clad women on them. That's it. That's the conclusion he comes to. He even asks "so who pimped for the women on Dr. Dahesh's books?"
If Dr. Dahesh really is a prophet of our time as Daheshists believe, then Darrick's conclusion here is one that defies decency and certainly any sort of reason. By ANY standard of ANY belief system. Even the very belief system he claims to adhere to.
Instead, what Darrick's actions clearly paint here is a picture of a depraved and lost mind that wants despicable acts to be acceptable.
It appears that in Darrick's world, if rules, laws and teachings are not black and white or cut and dry, he simply cannot understand them. And the apparent "gray area" in between is simply a vehicle to spin reality in to whatever suits his own personal depravity. Until of course, some degree of reality sets in and he can't see his acts justified any further, then of course, everything he used to believe is FALSE and everyone that still believes what he used to believe are LIARS.
From reading on Daheshville, the teachings of Dr. Dahesh seem incredibly humanist and inclusionary relative to the essences of all established religions. There seems to be a lot of temperance over there. I have not found any religion or belief system to be maligned. If in fact, Daheshism really is a continuation and the next chapter of the essences of all the world's spiritual religions (sort of like a peaceful, grand unification theory), then I don't think Darrick's world of peddling pornography, racism, separatism, hate and lies needs much more clarification.
