Great news KIK! I feel that every time someone is saved we should all celebrate at least a little.
I was told in no uncertain terms by a psychologist that I can't save my partner. If anyone thinks they can help me prove him wrong, my inbox is always open.
Luckily I wouldn't go too much on what a psychologist has to say. It is their subjective opinion based on what they know or don't know. After all, there are registered psychologists associated with UM current dispensing advice, as it were, so clearly it means very little. You have to really shop around to find people who know the subject and are capable of objectivity. After all they have their own blinkers and dispositions.
Having said that it is quite a difficult undertaking. Their view of the world is completely reversed and THEY DONT KNOW IT, if the cult is successful; therefore any objection to what they are doing is seen as a form of madness in the person doing so, or at the very least proof of what the cult leader has been telling them. Remember, good old Serge has been telling them that this is the new era and that resistance was going to increase, and also that when they stepped up to doing the work, pranic forces would build taking hold of those who opposed them 'doing the work'- even though they won't admit any of this, this is what they are thinking in some way or another. They also think that by doing the work that they are doing the best thing for themselves, their families ( and partners who they are leaving), children and so forth.
Of course we all know the irony is Serge is a rabid liar and inventor of BS, while we are the ones accused of being liars and mad. Beautiful reversal of the situation for Serge. They have of course let him get away with a lot-
like lying about his past; His story- I had no need to do the work, as my life was going jolly well with more wealth on the way- Truth- Bankrupt and fending of people he owed money.
Or- I live very simply- I use properties to help cancer patients and sick people- Truth - 8M property portfolio, all in his own name, with no cancer patients in sight ( except for his one across from the clinic at $50 a night) + a flotilla of Alfa's, first class flights....
His story- I am the re-incarnation of Leonardo da Vinci and others- I will never step back from that truth - Truth- that is a sort of joke, it is hard to explain because it is spherical and doesnt make sense when taking out of context...
His story- We called the TGA to check if our products were compliant.... the truth- TGA was already investigating and the products had not been compliant for years. ( convenient timing even Serge's your story was true, dont you think?)
His story- Miranda is the re-incarnation of Mary Magdalene ( therefore anything strange is A-okay!) ....the truth- she was 13 when he met her spruiking his elite tennis coach credentials ( later found to be somewhat exaggerated to say the least) and the road to Wimbledon, wrecking Miranda's family. Miranda has never been far away since. Work the rest out yourself.
Of course there are other untruths hanging around too which I wont spell out here. The point of illustrating them is this. If you or I did just one of these things we would be condemned by our families and friends. But not old Serge. He is hoisted upon the shoulders of students and followers and made a hero, and to make him even higher, the bodies of family members and partners are piled high to stand on. I suspect that he could be found to have done anything and the core followers would somehow swallow his re-interpretation and re-framing of events which is always beefed up by accusing someone else outside of the group of being more loveless or a bigger liar then before.
However somewhere at the students core is their old value system and I have been told that it takes a fair amount of suppression to keep accepting lie after lie and eventually they stack up and cause of a sort of a break even in the most ardent followers. But the problem is that they have spent so much time in it and done so much damage to their old relationships that it is hard for them to step out of it in a hurry. Also the remaining group act as a sort of fence and keep cajoling them back and reassuring them it is alright, in a sort of misery loves company (in the guise of 'love')
So Howdoesithappen, the old person is there somewhere, no matter how they are behaving now. There is always some hope. But the issue is whether you can go the distance and be there for them when they finally see what is going on and how they have been manipulated out of their lives.
Send me a PM and I will tell you more straight for the experts ( mind you having no luck myself..). cheers
