I found some of his comments confusing. He seems to still be labouring under the christian version of god in some respects, then discounts this in others.
I enjoyed his sense of humour, but found myself wondering why he was at a 'happy clappy' conference in the first place, if he thinks that people don't need gurus. It felt somewhat like he was trying to justify his being there.
Maybe its a cultural thing with me, but I find it very difficult to watch these teacher/guru/showman types, and particularly the audience's reactions. Smells like revival to me.
The ladder of enlightenment is another way of people judging the enlightenment of others, and themselves. Doesn't fit with my view of infinite potential, except in the fact that it becomes another story.
