And so my association with the Berkeley Psychic Institute is coming to a complete end. As with many spiritual organizations, the principles are great, but sometimes the execution leaves something to be desired. Three and a half years ago (is it that long, now?), when I decided to take a break from teaching, the new director of that institute gave me the energetic equivalent of "and don't let the door hit your ass on the way out". I've been an inactive member since then, and now, although I paid for last year and this year at the end of last year, they're telling me I'm coming up short. Nice principles, but twenty years of classes and teaching spirituality doesn't seem to guarantee competence in worldly endeavors, like book-keeping. It's not like I've been performing any marriages or done any spiritual counseling in the last three years, so if they want to make it difficult for me to keep my associate, so be it, I'm moving on.
