"Life is pain... Anyone who says differently is selling something."
I've been studying Byron Katie over the past few weeks, and this morning was thinking about all the people who start cults and/or use mind control on people. Their basic message seems to be: "I have the answer for how to rid your life of pain, and all you need to do is give me control of your life." And then that quote from The Princess Bride popped into my head. It is sooo true, not only regarding selling products, but also selling belief systems. I tend to be very naive and idealistic (to wit: my 15-year cult membership), and even now I tend to think 'hm, that sounds good' first before being skeptical (like I did with BK before finding out she uses mind control). I will now keep that quote at the forefront of my mind!
