David Icke

What are people's thoughts on him?

I've just started listening to a few of his talks so I don't hold much of a view yet. I know he's become very popular but also had some pretty weird ideas. Is it a case of taking some of what he says as valuable but disregarding the rest? Can any of what he says be trusted?

I like him so far. Could he say something I disagree with...maybe, but so what.

Prepare yourself for the coming astral journey of death by daily riding in the balloon of God-perception.
Through delusion you are perceiving yourself as a bundle of flesh and bones, which at best is a nest of troubles.
Meditate unceasingly, that you may quickly behold yourself as the Infinite Essence, free from every form of misery. ~Paramahansa's Guru's Guru.

I Watch David Icke, in fact I'm going to have a browse at his website when I've finished browsing on here.
I think he exaggerates a lot, (Don't forget, he wants to make money), but his total mindset is to the point.

Thank you both. I accidently posted this in the wrong forum - I meant for it to be in general beliefs - but glad you found it!

I like some of his ideas, not all. I joined a Facebook group the other day based on him but very promptly left because I was totally shocked by some of the belief systems held by many people on there.

I think some of his ideas hold water but not all.

It's the stuff about the Royal family I find hard to swallow and a lot of people have some pretty weird ideas around this.

I believe he had a genuine experience and was called to the path, plus can see beyond a lot of illusion.

But yes, I don't think he is always right.

I have many of David Icke's books and I went to two or three of his talks in the UK back in the 1990s. So I like him, and he is undoubtedly sincere.

Do I always trust his research? No. Do I always trust his conclusions? No.

But he does raise a lot of valid questions which demand answers.

When I saw him in Manchester in the 1990s he spoke about the royal family. He said he would really rather avoid the subject because it was too strange and he had had enough of people laughing at him. But various people had contacted him to tell him about their experiences, and he could not simply ignore what they were saying. He actually covered it rather well.

His ideas are worth reading, but then make up your own mind.

Peace

I used to think he was speaking in symbolism to get around media censorship, etc... I can see where he'd conclude some crazy things based on his own understandings but then again, I've experienced insane things too, I just don't talk about them.

Who cares though. There are teachers and then there are story-tellers. I say go find people you recognize as teachers who can instruct you practically and not say "here's a hundred ideas that wont really get you anywhere." I can't speak for Icke, I don't know what he actually teaches as far as practices.
