anyway this: "How to rid yourself once and for all of the fear of life that spoils life and find satisfaction using a simple act of inward looking" and other similar statements are in many areas of the organizations information. Plus, I think it works well to draw people in.....it certainly does market an 'ideal state' though.
What you said about; asking how it is for others, seeking somewhere else to see how my life should be; causing my suffering makes total sense to me. My only response to that is how 'needy' I feel about it all. Also, untrusting. After all, John is making a statement/claim similar to what others have made throughout the centuries (living without fear etc., natural state) that have been ineffective and so why would this be any different. I've been drawn to other things before with the big AHA. So I'm not too excited about it; but then again" it can't hurt".
That's what prompted my 'direct question'. Has this actually worked for anyone else? or just 'sort of'....John has said 'the fear of life is gone'. I do want that for myself.
I really appreciate your input and about focusing more on "me" "here". That 'seeker survivor' in me feels still 'at large' and who seems to be even reading through the forums!!!!! lol
