Dear Nicole and Blake,
As one who has been deeply moved by the talks of Robert Adams and his book Silence of the Heart, I must say that I find it incredulous that you are not welcoming Matthew Brown’s beautifully presented screenplay with open arms.
Robert was a most beautiful Saint and Sage and stressed over and over again that we are ONE... not two!
I can not believe that you have heard his talks and read the book when you undertake such negative action against your SELF!
Robert also stressed that the TRUTH of who we really are cannot be sold, it must be offered freely to all spiritual seekers and those who are sincere will take care of the teacher’s needs.
Do you not remember the story Robert told of the lady who got caught up in launching a new lawsuit every month and how miserable and unhappy she was... are you both that unhappy?
From a spiritual perspective, your spinning around in such obvious fear is a perfect lesson for others of how our egos carry us away from who we really are.
From a legal perspective, you risk being sued yourselves for launching such a frivolous legal action.
There is no defamation, copyright infringement or other intellectual property infringement in Matthew’s screenplay that I can see.
And to think that Robert’s talks are copyright protected is sheer fantasy and legally ridiculous. If you would bother to listen to Robert’s talks you would clearly hear him directing copies to be made for FREE distribution and discussing how they have been spread all over the world. There are clearly many tapes being made and Robert even joked about this. Those tapes are the property of the persons taping the Satsangs WITH Robert’s full permission and all photographs taken with his full permission by his students are the property of those students.
There is a legal term you should be aware of called “PUBLIC DOMAIN”.
You should also research the legal judgement set in the ACIM decision by Robert W. Sweet, U.S. District Court Judge on October 24, 2003 and note that the defendants were awarded costs.
I cannot think of a better closing line than one that Robert himself often said...
Why don’t you just WAKE UP!
