Hello Truth Warrior,
I have stumbled upon this forum and your post because I have been researching Krishna Consciousness/ISKCON with the belief that is part of a dark spiritual warfare.
I haven't read all your posts, but some of which I have resonated with me.I do believe what you have shared to be true and I am sure there is way much more you have experienced that goes beyond "normal".
I have recently connected online with someone who is a devotee of Krishna, and started looking it up. He stopped talking to me after asking him questions I myself didn't understood or seemed contradictory, and I think he might have either felt challenged and/or insulted.
I am a christian (who came out from a lot of spiritual warfare, and believe the spiritual world to be very real - I am still recovering from what I have engaged with in the past, so reading your posts feels very familiar).
I think because all of us have deep in us an inner cry for God we are so much so easily prayed upon when we encounter anything of spiritual nature. Because it's a new reality, we take it at face value, believing it must be legit. It becomes a drug in itself, and we lose our ability to think and discern and even function as the normal healthy human beings we were designed to be.
They lure you in, groom you and before you know it, you are lost in them, pacified, used and abused.
The more I found about KC the more I realised it must be a cult as it fits like a glove in the cultic practices. And then I thought for sure there must be some people who came out of it and realised the deception.
I am very grateful for your courage to have shared your honest experiences.
There are just a few links where I found of ex-followers sharing their experience, and I'm gonna post it here maybe you will find it somewhat useful.
Hope my message was able to encourage you,
Another Truth Warrior
