Just want to say what a great job you all are doing with the discussion on this forum; I am in my early 20's and have seen my entire immediate family become controlled by UM, including younger siblings. It has been extremely difficult to cope at times, and so it's very reassuring to find a group of sane people discussing this malicious organisation.
Hi Track&field, that is very disturbing - especially to have your parents who are supposed to be showing you the way leave you in the position of being the sane one. There is truly no end to the misery Serge is prepared to make other suffer so he can pursue his psychosis induced vision that he is contact with the hierarchy. Imagine the pain we wouldn't have to go through if he had taken medication when he heard those voices. Every person that falls under his spell confirms his idea that it is all true. And the money doesnt hurt.
Little story- a friend of mine had a psychotic episode in his 20's but it wasn't diagnosed at first. Like a lot of people, he believed he was Christ. He was very eloquent and seemed quite sane. His belief was so intense, I have to admit when around him, you 'felt' it might be true. He developed a persona, a look in his eye, an aura. No one knew he was having a break, and over about 2 years he gathered about 20-30 people who thought he was Christ incarnate. He drew amazing pictures ( hang on, maybe he was Leonardo...) and wrote a book of sayings. The people rented him a house where he held informal gatherings of his disciples. He oozed love and people were crying when they were around him, and he seemed to say amazing and profound things. Then one day he started frothing at the mouth, shaking head to foot and writhing around on the floor. His followers thought he was ascending or channeling God! But when it didn't stop, someone rang for an ambulance. I didn't witness that, but about a month later I went to visit him at Callan Park in sydney. He was sitting on his bed, picking his nose and smoking a rollie... he said " F*** didn't I flip out...now I am on lithium I feel a lot better! Yep, it was a long slow burn mental breakdown, and weren't 30 or so people really embarrassed. They dis appeared into the wordwork like cockroaches when the light is flipped on.
The moral of the story is- People will buy anything if they think it is going to save them, answer the unanswerable. Stay strong and we can only hope that the gathering Pranic forces of the Lords of Form finally break through the fiery hearts of the faithful and they start to see their delusion and the delusion of their master.
