You are not going to like what I have to say here, but here it is. If she gave you an ultimatum that you do not intend to abide by, then it's time to end this relationship. For you to imply that you may change your mind about Landmark and actually attend a seminar in the future is dishonest. It's not fair to her and it's not fair to yourself. And if you think you are going to

Colter, I'm very happy that AA has worked for you. I am aware that it has worked for millions of people. But AA does NOT work for EVERYONE. Why can't you just admit the fact that not everyone responds fits into the AA mold and not everyone responds well to that particular type of program?

Quotemrpc And as for the response of "primerica will take everybody", you need to do more research. Don't most colleges "take everybody?" Um, actually, no they don't. Most colleges (good ones, anyway) have an admissions department that decides who will get admitted to the college and who won't. Reputable colleges often have many more applicants than they

I just had a garage sale yesterday with a friend. She had a couple books for sale on alcoholism recovery, one of which was called How to Quit Drinking without AA. Here is a review of it on Amazon.com: A man ended up buying it, and the 2 of them got into a really interesting discussion about why they disliked AA. I mentioned this thread to them and both agreed that in their opinion it was

My dad knew Lyndon La Rouche back in the late '60s/early '70s. His take on LaRouche is that the man is a total nut job who was paid by the CIA and FBI to infiltrate the anti-war movement. His theory is that the CIA realized what a loose cannon they were dealing with and cut off all ties with him.

QuoteRU?ing 'Skull and Bones' - I notice no reference to this group apart from my own on this site, news reports are light, at least online. This is a documented and real group, with enourmous power, though obviously, as with Opus Dei, it quickly decendes into theory rather than acutality. Skull and Bones is a well-known "Secret Society". I'm sure there are plenty of

QuoteToni Many who left other cultish groups turn to Gangaji, saying "she's the anti-teacher teacher" "She tells people to listen inside themselves and not follow her alone." Meanwhile, those same followers return repeatedly to sit at her feet, travel with her for spiritual retreats, and place her pictures on home altars. This is exactly what I've said in prev

Gangaji comes from the Advaita tradition of self-inquiry. Advaita (non-duality) is a branch of the Vedanta school of Hinduism. Advaita was started by Ramana Maharshi and H.W. Poonja (also knowns as Poonjaji or Papaji. Poonja was also Andrew Cohen's guru. I have seen Gangaji 3 times. The first time was in 1997 or 98 (my first Advaita experience) and I was not impressed at all, to say th

QuotewquercusPeople read Brown, and so many of these "exposes," and they see that it is so far afield from the Opus Dei that they come to know through evenings of reflection, retreats, and friendships. It isn't a "cult," it is a way of being Catholic which is recognized by the Catholic Church as completely mainstream. I would think anyone with half a brain would know th

QuoteColter 13th stepping is not a part of the AA program. Your referring to the behavior of an individual, not AA. Such immoral behavior is openly discouraged in AA meetings. It's not uncommon to here older members suggesting that new members avoid getting involved in new sexual relationships for at least one year after getting sober. If by 13th steping your refering to rape the indi

I just saw something on the news last night about Opus Dei actually attracting new members due to the DaVinci Code. They interviewed an Opus Die spokesperson or official who said he had several new members come to him and say they'd heard about the organization from reading the DaVinci Code. One man in particular apparently told this guy that he read the book and didn't believe any of

One of my acquaintances is very involved in this. He's also involved in a lot of MLM-type stuff and used to be involved with the Church of Satan. Not sure if they're all connected, but I think Neo-Tek and Church of Satan are somehow connected. Neo-Tek also borrows a lot of their ideas from Ayn Rand, although they have no official connection to her organization.

Interesting point. I think commercialism is much more accepted and respected than it was in the "counterculture" 1960s. Back then you'd be accused of "selling out" if you tried to make money. Nowadays, people are considered stupid or weird if they choose NOT to make money on something. People wear t-shirts with product names on them, big corporations get stadiums na

I have to agree with Acid Reindeer on this point. Anti-depressants and anti-psychotic drugs are not necessarily proven to be safe and effective. Psychiatrists even admit they're not sure how or why some of these drugs work. The bottom line is that we have no idea what some of these drugs do to the body and mind long-term. No long-term clinical trial has been done on many of the newer one

QuotelightwolfI would add that the LGATs never really suggest that the problem could be your behavior. Maybe in real reality you are making some bad choices that, as a natural consequence, "mess your life up" and "make it not work." Of course, the response to this would be to look at your behavior, learn from it, and make better choices next time. But why bother with that w
