Very intersting (oh and I love glamour mags
with comfort foods when need be).
These are things I like seeing brought to light, they are actually more diabolical then perceived. Meaning there are layers upon layers of deception and misunderstanding with these types of groups. For one, when people are given spiritual enlightment, it is not to be used in self gain situation, sadly, this experience can be unavoidable at times to ensure we learn what isn't for self gain (ego driven). Now sometimes (instructors/teachers) of said tools to strengthen another persons belief in anything, do not realise, and are unaware, that at the time, they actually do not posess any skills to do such a thing. That sounds ridiculously simple, although there are people out there that believe their intent is in the right place, (there ego would not want to believe otherwise) even when they are manipulating and stalling true growth or enlightment. They end up confusing people, including themselves.
Listen as far fetched as it sounds, the people who chose to be involved in this group have accountability as well. You cannot place faith that someone else will guide you to truth or enlightment, things like this is what will happen. And what happens, when someone is ego driven and thinking they are helping other people....their belief ends up becomming supported by yours, only making theirs stronger, and deluding the entire truth of the exchange as their ego reaches max limits before the truth is exposed..... with help from the support of a follower
The unjustices that are created by these types of groups are not good, although it is part of a leanring process that even people not involved in said groups will experience:
You cannot place more faith in to the hands of another person.
You cannot have more belief in someone else, than you do in yourself
You cannot depend on other people to guide you accordingly
or things like this continue to happen.
