I've realized that this group uses quite a few specific words and phrases to back up their arguments and methods. I'm wondering if there is an existing list of this vocabulary that I might see and keep in mind as I work with her.
It's probably a good idea to keep in mind that what sounds like 'backing up' an argument or a method, is just an empty but 'programmed' application of LE vocabulary or phrases where specific situations or questions seem to require their use. If you say a certain word or ask a certain question, the landmarkian program 'prompts' the landmarkian to insert this word here and that phrase there; it's not about backing anything up, it is about ensuring that the LE installed blinders and ear stops don't get compromised by real life contradictions, and there are many.
Consider how hollow a typical LE word or phrase sounds when used to justify an action or answer a question, that is the LE 'program' in action. Landmarkians will tell you how they don't believe in anything that they haven't witnessed to be true and valid for themselves, especially when they are trying to convince you of the validity of LE 'technologies' and how effective they are, but in fact, what they really witness are generic self-reported accounts of other deceived landmarkians. You certainly NEVER hear how they miraculously come to live a life they love everyday. In watching a friend live this 'extraordinary' life, I noticed that their real everyday life was seriously neglected, ie; work, home, housekeeping stuff etc...I've come to conclude that Landmarkians love their lives everyday because they abandon them for the LE rollercoaster ride of more courses, more training to be good little volunteer, more recruitment efforts, more forums etc...
Interestingly enough, the founder of this racket did the same thing with his life in the beginning...abandoned it to 'create' the greener turf of LE pastures.
Anyway, my experience with a person programmed by LE is that there is no logic offered by LE that may be applicable and effective in most real life processes. The well known 'thought stopping' phrases and isolating vocabulary, are addressed on most threads pertaining to LE on this forum, read on and learn as you go...I will predict that as you read on, you will find that LE is one of the slickest psycho-con games on the grossly unregulated 'self help' market today.
It is a concoction of various eastern/western philosophies, misused and misinterpretations of a few psychological schools of thought (ie: cognitive-behavioral, existential, Rogerian, etc...) and some well researched, thoroughly tested and up-to-date word-of-mouth marketing strategies....back in the day they would have called LE a pyramid scheme, with a twist!
