Maybe you were thinking about the Fred Lenz cult instead of the TMO - I
can't recall Jerry Jarvis saying anything like that when I was working
for the TMO. If for some reason you were to miss a meditation doesn't
mean you're "off" the program.
In fact, everyone is on a personal "program" until you die - then you're
not even off the program, if like yourself, a person believes in
reincarnation and the Tibetan Bardo state. Since you've already
experienced rebirth several times (that you can remember), you've
probably got a few thousand more lives to lead being on some kind of
program. Go figure.
