fun for us! We thought it was something new and exciting and we
enjoyed it a lot. Of course now we know that those techniques are
introduced only for recruitment and not for personal development.
Seen from this point of view, it doesn't seem so attractive any more.

and she didn't seem to have a great sense of humor. To me, it seemed
as if she was drying out from the inside - and I thought once again
how weird it was that Eckankar could attract such weird people! It
was not for the first time I noticed that.
I notice, too, that some ex-eckists haven't left Eckankar completely
and never will. So, once again, we will have to be very, very
careful to look for those old patterns inside ourselves.
