We all lost our way, Matt

But God never leaves us and even if you don't believe in God, no one can take our minds from us, our own freedom of thinking. That's a treasure that even in prisoner of war camps, they can't take it. I think, Matt, what you need to see that would help you and I know it helped me tremendously, is getting over Berg and that he was some kind of prophet or mouthpiece of God. Once I got over that, I could leave it all behind and start new. That was hard because it tore away the foundation I had layed with Berg at its root. I felt like I was free-falling and there was nothing to stop me. But that's only an illusion because the human spirit is designed to be strong and withstand a lot, otherwise, we'd all jump off a cliff like a bunch of lemmings. No, we're stronger than that and we can withstand a lot, a lot more than we realize. The thing is, you need to understand that Berg was taking us down the wrong road from the beginning. Reading the basic letters is not your salvation, that's what Berg wanted us to think and we feel for it. But we do not need to fall for it anymore. I think if you realize that and stop depending on Berg or the F. for your happiness you will find a great freedom and release you never even imagined. I know it's what happened to me.
