Natural Health and Beauty has a great interview with Shirley MacLaine:

Here is a snippet:

Do you enjoy the role of being a guru?
I don’t like to think of myself that way. I don’t know about gurus. I never had a guru, so I don’t want to be anyone’s guru. I stopped doing my seminars in the ’80s for that reason. My audiences were giving away their power to me, and I couldn’t stand it. I don’t like power that much. I don’t like telling people what to do. I like to share my experience, and then I like to hear about what they want so they can find their own path. You really have to get clear in your mind, though, whether you want to be a guru or not. I made up my mind in the ’80s, and I proved it; I quit the seminars. There were too many people following me around, too many people saying I changed their lives. And I didn’t. They did. I think of it as though I’m the flint with which you can light your own fire.

Is that why you decided to do a web site?
Many people came to me and asked that I do it, since I was thought of as one of the founders of this whole spiritual movement. Although it is certainly not new. It’s been going on for maybe 7,000 years. I wanted to build a community, so I just took it slow, and step by step learned from the spiritual community about what people wanted. Now I have 17 million users.

Wow, 17 million users....move over Ming!
