this does not sound pleasant at all. I am sosorry that you feel this way. If any church has hurt you or people you know, you will surely find support in this forum but likely in another thread. I hope that you can find a trusted bunch of people to post with and support you through this.
The leading role of churches around the world, especially Christian, Judaic, Islamic and Hindu, is so comprehensive, that there are few people who have not hurted by the mentioned churches in some of the countless ways. However, instead of answering for the individual and mass crimes they constantly commit, they very persistently and aggressively "expel the devil" from those who are not members of their church / sect.
They succeed to doing so by controlling all the levers of power of the societies in which we live, especially the "ministries of force" in the form of security-intelligence services. Simply put, the persecution of "heretics" during the Middle Ages continued, in a more cunning and invisible way, shifting responsibility for the evil they did to their victims - in this case, the spiritual seekers.
By what we have said, we are not defending deceivers, on the contrary, we are very interested in cleansing the field of spiritual development from sexual predators, mlm businessmen, insane ego-maniacs and all those who unconsciously or consciously discredit the field of spiritual development and cause pain to spiritual seekers.
Such a situation in the field of spirituality was deliberately created by the aforementioned churches that hold all social power in the West (and other regions around the world), and it is good to know that all leading "spiritual teachers" in the West (referring to U.S.) are under control of Catholic and Judaic churches, and are divided into two groups:
- those who come from the West and who have consciously accepted to compromise the field of spirituality in exchange for the glory of a "spiritual teacher" and a luxurious life
- those who are recruited throughout the Indo-Asian region, where one part of them does not know that they spread harmful and potentially dangerous spiritual development techniques and the second part who deliberately spreads harmful and potentially dangerous spiritual development techniques, because they are (most often) crypto- Catholics.
If this short explanation helped you to understand more clearly what is happening in the field of spiritual development, we will be especially glad, because the best of all healers is the truth.
We will not interfere in your work with comments in the future, because this is your forum and your responsibility.
