“The only advice you can give to the seeker is this: seek for truth within your own heart, for there alone you can find it. Share your experiences? Yes, to be sure! Your story can be of immense help to others. But the boundaries of such an offering are clear. It is YOUR experience you are offering, a story, not a prescription for others. Whatever truth someone else sees in it is the truth he is meant to receive. And this, of course, will be different for each person who hears your story.
Ultimately, you alone are responsible for the beliefs you accept. Someone can tell you terrible lies, but it will never be his responsibility that you believed them. So do not waste your time blaming the guru, the cult or the church. Thank them instead. Tell them how grateful you are to them for pointing you on the true path. Without seeing their weakness and human frailty, you would have continued to idolize them and give your power away. Now you can reclaim your power and resume your path to peace.”
