Sahaj Marg: Patel, Guru 2.0
According to a message from Alexis: Patel, Guru 2.0
Sahaj connect: Meditation anywhere/anytime meditation
He spoke about it, and he did! The smartphone app is already available ...
3: 39 AM, you wake up. It comes on like a need to piss, you suddenly need a sitting! No problem, log in and press the "now" button: in the cloud, an (any?) "available" preceptor from anywhere on the globe, or as if from nowhere, will answer ...
Then, Patel dreamed of a professional 24/7 meditation service accessible by insomniac abhyasis in full crisis! A terribly consumerist vision of spirituality to grab the maximum market share of 2.0 Meditation.
Since he (Patel is a pharmacist) sold his pharmaceutical products on the web, he now wants to impose an on-line 24/7 spiritual consulting, enslaving his followers (will preceptors now be volunteering to be "on-call", servicing all abhyasis?) to the ephemeral and versatile needs of the general public.
HeartFulness, or the proposition of the Uberisation of Sahaj Marg
“For such a person, who is able to maintain the connection with the inner Self, there is no need for meditation. On a spiritual path like Sahaj Marg, there must come a time when we really become professionals in meditation. Our meditative state is then for 24/7.
(...) With this Heartfulness approach, if you do feel stuck and you cannot go to a preceptor for a sitting, call them and request a remote sitting instead.”
(...) [Patel] also said that we are about to take Sahaj Marg to the next level. “I know in France you don't like this application Uber, but I like it so much. Say you are in Tokyo, and in the middle of the night you want a sitting, you can go online and someone awake in Los Angeles can give you a sitting. I think a day will come when our Masters will give us permission to work masterfully. Our job is to dream of such things so that they become possible.”

Uberisation again: “[Kamlesh] remarked that preceptors should be working all the time and not just while giving the sittings.
Uberisation still: Sahaj connect, Meditation anywhere anytime!
Nine (9) months and 1 novelty per day! For the SRCM, Sahaj Marg and the abhyasis, the revolution is in full swing. First a Patel / Peyret duo for a (Medium/Guru) spiritualist governance. Then, meditation for all and by all with HeartFulness. Finally the devaluation of the power of preceptors, tailored and exploit-able ... to a "thank you very much" ...
