It is very fascinating to go back and look at ones own earlier worship of a Guru, and to then deconstruct it years later.
It can be more than a bit disturbing to see the programmed thinking, and manic idealizations that a person was influenced into having.
What Michael and Royal Way do, is the same as every other sect/group/cult.
They say, if something GOOD happens in your life, its because of the Guru, RW Michael, Byron Katie's Work [forum.culteducation.com
] SGI chanting [forum.culteducation.com
] its all the same technique.
If something BAD happens, that is YOUR FAULT for not believing in the Guru or his/her methods hard enough, so take more courses and give him more money/gifts/tithes.
That is not even hyperbole, that is exactly what they do, in slightly less blunt language.
Everything bad thing is always the followers fault, and everything good is due to the Guru. That is simply a technique of control.
In fact, the truth is the opposite! The good things in people's lives, are being had by their own efforts and hard work, and the like.
The bad stuff in their life, other than the human condition, often can come from destructive processes like the Byron Katie "Work" [forum.culteducation.com
] and bad Guru's who use, abuse and exploit the person, and then BLAME the victim.
So the Guru turns everything around on the person.
Byron Katie even has the stones to call it a TURNAROUND right to their face.
The Guru knows what they are doing, they are not dummies. Michael learned a lot from his years as a therapist.
On top of that, they always try to CURSE and HEX unbelievers, like SGI Soka Gakkai [forum.culteducation.com
] as well as Royal Way, and all the other groups.
Heck, one of the Royal Way people by the code-name "Paprika" even tried to put a supernatural hex in this thread, saying a critic was going to get what Judas got.
QUOTE PAPRIKA (Royal Way member): "I know who you are. ...you actually think you’re hurting Royal Way, when in fact you are destroying yourself. You have committed the worst kind of betrayal. Have you ever heard of Judas? When Judas betrayed Jesus, he didn’t hurt Jesus, he created a world religion for him. But do you know what happened to Judas after his betrayal? Maybe you should find out."
That is, either their guts blowing up or hanging. Evil and toxic words from a senior Royal Way member, perhaps even Michael himself.
Its all just attempts to use superstitious FEAR and psychological terror tactics on former members.
Of course, they don't work, as most kids learn by 6 year old name-calling.
All those toxic words from Royal Way do is reveal the ugly and vicious mentality of a senior Royal Way member, or Michael himself. They want to do a Turnaround on the RW members, and make them turn on themselves, to point the finger away from the perpetrator Guru, Michael.
Same technique as everyone else.
