Good to read these posts this morning. Cheered up a grey day, thanks everyone. The thing I have noticed happen and I don't always like it as I feel coerced, is when you are just walking away and they call you back when you are nearly gone. They just hook you as you are disappearing. We have to get strength to believe we can go and it's ok.

have just read a newspaper article about a book on mass hysteria in history and it was fascinating. I wanted to share it but wasn't sure of which forum to put it on. The article refers to a book called A Time to Dance, A Time to Die. The Extraordinary Story of the Dancing Plague of 1518 by John Waller (published by Icon Books.) The article calls the hysterical group outbursts ‘psychi

Dear Mangomama, Thanks for your reply. I am sorry if it seemed I was suggesting you lied. It just seems that lots of young people who meet Michael Lyons find it difficult to walk away. He has these practices or techniques which he uses to wear young women down. Some of the group are involved in his businesses so I suppose they think they are independant. From the outside looking in they are b

Dear Mangomama, I would like to reply to a few of your comments. Firstly, It is unlikely that you consciously realise any coercion. Often people are coerced without realising it. Influence can be very subtle. Also an environment can be designed to influence you behave in a certain way. Think about the surroundings where you met him. What were they like? Where were you? What did you do? W

Coolhermit, hi, This is hard to say without sounding cliched; but, I really mean this: I think God is Truth and that what you say makes sense in that there is a long line of false teachings. I think that Paul being on a road is a good picture for me and I will think about the things and images and stories I like in the bible. However, I do not want to ask for direction from spiritualist types

Thankyou victim 2005. It is courageous of you to write your experience up. It is also very helpful to others because a lot of what happens around Michael Lyons he makes very confusing to the people around him. One of the reasons he makes things confusing is that he attempts to give the impression it is all very spiritual. He is not spiritual, he is obsessive. But some young women have not got

Thunderhrlotus. Do you not think that the Truth does need a witness? We need to witness the truth and be witnesses for the truth. That is what I think. I am not sure that Mohan has much concern for truth but I think he has big concerns over appearances.

Sweetvoice, please read what you posted and ask yourself if 'sweet voice' is an appropriate name you have chosen. I do not judge your life how could I? How do you judge mine as small and sad? It's ok!

I think i am hearing that non attachment is a way to happiness and non suffering. This seems to be a part of Buddhist teachings. I just find it a little confusing that some people are coming across as very attached to this guy 'Mohan' and then they seem to have feelings of anger towards people like myself who do not feel any attachment to this particular person and his philosophy.

Good luck to all who are seeking justice and freedom of mind. Thankyou for posting messages here: We are strong together, and this edifice of false tricks that Mohan has built will crumble because it is not built on truth.
