Gurutitus

From The SpiritWiki

Gurutitus is the pathological inflammation of the Bodily Ego caused by the incorrect personal presumption of spiritual advancement. A person with gurutitus believes they are spiritually advanced even after only one or two Connection Experiences. ALthough an individual with gurutitus may convince others they are spiritually advanced, their hyper-inflated ego belies their advancement.

Notes

Guruitus may arise as a consequence of Wrong Thought, especially thoughts that emphasize hierarchy, privilege, and one's "chosen" status.

Gurutitus usually occurs following a powerful Connection Experience or two, rarely any more. The connection experience pathologically inflates an Bodily Ego whose needs have been thwarted, and that is damaged by, Toxic Socialization. Thus, it may be classified as a Connection Pathology.

Note, Connection is not always a precursor to the development of Gurutitus. Even individual without any history of significant Connection can fake spiritual knowledge if they find an audience naive and damaged enough to believe them.

Example, Osho, many evangelists, anyone who believes they are superior to the people they teach and otherwise elevate themselves relative to the students, chelas, faithful, followers they encourage to attend them.
