Good for you Mike! I understand that even for those who leave an
authoritarian Cult like eckanker, there is often a strong likelihood
that many will return or find another similar Cult. The ones I worry
about are the young members and those born into eckankult. I have been
reading a book called The Psychology of Transcendence, by Andrew
Neher. He does a good job of explaining how Cult leaders and other
charlatans like Twitchell and Klemp encourage their followers to have
dream hallucinations and so called spiritual experiences based on the
repetition of behavior, thought control, and abusive influences. The
more we know and the more we question,imo, the more aware we are and
the less we are fooled by these sociopaths. Just think of the millions
of dollars that go to these fake masters and their handlers. It's all
a sham, a scam, a shame.
