So many cult members (as we were) are taught to ignore this little spark, its called one's intuition and its there for a purpose, we were taught that this is ego and that ego is bad news and evil. so we fought it for so long did not we?

I love to meet a feminine woman but there few and far between. Have you girls sacrificed your feminine for the feminists?

Is it healthy to have an answer for everything? Actually, I would more likely see the deep psychological requirement to have all the answers laid out for you by Big Daddy and the 100% certainty that goes with that more unhealthy [/b], if anything ;). Admitting that I don't know, and staying THERE, ...

Yes, its that 'elite' label that you can feel oh-so-superior about. When I first joined the BKs it was admitted to me when I questioned them on it that, yes it did seem rather elitist to consider yourself above all other deluded humans, but that, "we are the only ones who really know the truth" and ...

Often I've heard that drugs and alcohol usage are forms of escapism. Great! However, overusage of food must surely fall into the same category, it feeds something missing within. And if one is not getting what one wants, one will want it more until satisfied. I understand that perhaps food to me, i...

There was a man who worked for the Post Office whose job it was to process all the mail that had illegible addresses. One day, a letter came addressed in a shaky handwriting to God. He thought he should open it to see what it was about. The letter read: Dear God, I am an 83 year old widow, living on...
