“One of the things that I have reflected upon in the last few years is the seductive dynamics of being in a cult-like group. And yes, I do consider KS a cult, among many others.
They prey upon two things, primarily. First, the ego as you mention. The ego is easily seduced with being told it is special in some way, it has a special mission, it has special coding, it is part of a select few who came here to save the planet..blah, blah blah.
The second seduction is far more insidious, as it preys upon a true desire to serve. That desire to serve is then manipulated to serve the agenda of the cult leader. Somewhere in the evolution of those dynamics, individual discernment erodes and is absorbed into group discernment (which of course is the agenda of the leader and whoever he/she happens to be serving) , and then it is just a step away from the kool aid.
It is individual discernment that is most dangerous in a cult. If individual discernment happens to appear, and that discernment is not in alignment with “group think” the labeling, demonizing and ostracism happens swiftly and forcefully , as Erin Prophet described and those in KS have witnessed ad nauseam. The agenda continues, just with a few less people 🙂
It has been a wonderful gift to see all of this firsthand. As you mention, it has led me to a deeper understanding of what is Kristic behavior, real self sovereignty and a deeper understanding of the Law of One. While many cults seduce by giving lip service to the Law of One, their behavior is often completely the opposite.
May our individual discernment and connection to Source always prevail.
Source bless us, everyone.”
