turq, it's simply a matter of experience. I've done my TMSP and I've not done it. I prefer to do the TMSP. I've done my TMSP alone and I've done it in the Dome. I prefer to do the TMSP in the Dome. IMO it does not make me a cultist nor an elitist nor a sheep nor terrified, etc. And to again ask you about CD and your daily life, where do you sacrifice, as you would have me and Buck do, something that is the highest priority for you for something that is less of a priority? Where do you live CD in daily life rather than in the theoretical realm of bardo vs no bardo?

Ann, I'm not commenting to razz you on your comment, because I'd like to see you do that, too :-), just to point out something you don't seem to realize. VERY few people would ever even *consider* standing up to the TMO because they're GURUWHIPPED. They CARE -- and care deeply -- about still being considered "members of the organization," and "in good standing." They know what would happen to them if that ever changed. On the org level, they'd never be allowed to go to any other meeting or program again. On a social level, many of their so-called friends would write them off as being Off The Program and abandon them as well. So they're NEVER going to stand up to the nazicrats because they're still terrified of being on their own, outside the TMO, and probably for the rest of their lives. For you, that's not a concern. For me, that's not a concern. For many people, that's not a concern. But for those who are still caught in the dilemma of "Oh God, what would I *do* if I were ever thrown off of the 'highest path' and never had access to any TM functions or programs ever again?" It's EASY for those of us who really *don't* give a shit what anyone in the TMO thinks of us to consider burning our bridges and telling them to fuck off. It's not as easy for those who feel that they'd be commit- ing a kind of spiritual suicide by doing so. And MANY people have been brainwashed to believe just that. You're dealing with cultists here. They may bitch about the cult in private, but they're never going to do anything in public that jeopardizes their continuing membership in the cult.
