Monty Jonson reports:
To break away from Desteni for most Destonians would also be a loss of self-empowerment because their starting point for breath was not themselves but rather the very predictable subtle intention of 'belonging in a group and believing I am doing the right thing.'
'Intention' in Desteni was simply put - Starting Point.
Magick, well, magic is Self-Correction, Self-Empowerment, Self-Honesty.
Self-forgiveness is a way of removing guilt, 'cause guilt is unnecessary and can get in the way of so much.
Once enough self-forgiveness is done the brain gets used to the idea of forgiving itself for everything and from that point on all self-forgiveness may as well be masturbation.
It's nice, it makes you feel good. That's the way Bernard intended it to be used.
What I am trying to make you senior Destonians understand is that this was a planned structure from the start.
Bernard said himself, after visiting the masters and discovering the state of the bullshit reality and the lack of willingness for anyone in actual powerful ability to do anything about it, driven by anger, he desired to be and create the biggest demon imaginable.
He has spoken many things that are incongruent with the Desteni teachings, but because you were under his spell/hypnosis (not specifically directly, mainly indirectly due to your desire to achieve 'gnosis' (whatever that whiz bang definition is for you!) and unwillingness to do it on your own steam looking for the closest thing that will do to ease the pain you feel when you think of all the children that are dieing all over the world) you never saw what he was actually teaching YOUR BODIES.
Maybe now you will.
