A pretty damning assessment of an organization that portrayed itself as the 'gift of GOD' to the earth--ah . . . universe?
I guess I personally 'missed the bullet' with regards to ever being targeted (blessed?) by either JRS or Hargrave & Co. I am still in shock at the legacy these folks have left behind all in the name of GOD, the ONE who continues to accumulate a lot of bad press.
Just yesterday, I was reflecting on the hubris of MH to declare herself the 'Lamp of Israel' (and I apologize for having previously used 'Tramp of Israel'--name-calling is not my style) when there was little to no evidence that she spoke for GOD at all. It wasn't her voice we all heard on cassettes or CDs for decades, except when she would occasionally ramble at some service. And this con was perpetuated all the way to her last breath.

On the subject of 'trusting your gut' you could not be more right. I have pointed out numerous times that training us to 'distrust our gut' was one of the biggest disservices done to us all, regardless of whether or not we might have been additionally 'blessed' with their particular form of abuse.
We have all come equipped with a place within us that resonates with TRUTH, and we not only were directed to ignore it, but this also threw our LOVE-BS meter out of kilter. While our guts were trying to get our attention, our brains were being washed to distract us.
Our gut-feelings are powerful indicators that reveal directions or decisions that are in our own best interests, even though they may not find favor with others trying to direct us down a different road. We all walk a unique path that no other will step foot on, so what may be a direction that takes someone else through a valley may feel more like scaling a mountain to us. To each his own until we all meet up again at the celebration planned for our return.
