In 2007 “SweetJesus” comments and then ends with a question for me: - if energy follows thought what are you attracting to yourself as you attempt to dismantle TIP?
TIP will not be dismantled by those who expose abusive practices. Only the founder can dismantle TIP by holding onto the us/them divide built into the "construct" that perpetuates war and suffering, and by openly venting that those who try to correct abuse are disloyal and will lose their souls.
Let me quote in part Sweet's comment:
“I respect Faye's right to her version of the story and the right of students to let her voice it. Is it possible that a student and friend would let her teacher and friend talk about her version of events and out of respect let her have her time to vent? In my experience with members leaving I have asked for their reality story and then asked those who they have talked about to tell me their reality story. Both are valid, real, important and worth hearing. I don't take sides. Good luck Plum Tree. I hope you have success in every area of your life.”
First, Sweet, thank you for sharing your heartfelt experience. I’m wondering how you are now? You said of the two factions “both are valid, real, important and worth hearing” and that you do not take sides. The ex-member’s stories of abuse continue in the training, and people continue to leave in pain. Evidently you felt there was nothing that could be done about the continuing sacrifice of these good people, which as you say has benefited those who stay by bringing change.
The question you asked me is a form of argument that has been used to keep the abuse in place for many, many years, and is Faye’s argument.
Please read the new letter on the “Lessons in Awareness” site, which I will briefly excerpt here:
“ I was surprised and happy at first to see Faye, herself, was there. And then the nightmare began. Faye told me I was in denial, and that there was evil occurring right under my nose to my poor, sick little guy. Even though the best high-tech immunologists in the world were telling me that I was a carrier of a known but rare X-linked genetic mutation that they’d actually identified in my DNA, that day Faye insisted that the true reason Ray was sick was that my husband was sexually abusing him and had been for weeks since he was born.
Science be damned was the attitude. She could “see” it in their energy fields, she claimed. She added that Ray was born “too soon” and wasn’t ready for this.
It was like a surprise dunking in ice water to my whole nervous system. That afternoon, in my shock and horror, I broke down. I dissolved. Through my tears, I cried -- how could this be? She suggested he/my husband was doing it while I was gone, and the upper levels all nodded their heads in silent agreement. But I almost never leave the baby! I cried. Next, she told me he was doing it at night while I was asleep. But we all sleep in the same room – usually in the same bed! -- since I’m nursing.
Finally, she told me something that even then in my shattered state sounded totally crazy, but she said it without flinching: He was probably drugging Ray…and me.”

Upper levels have implicitly condoned Faye’s practices because they know they will be expelled, kicked out of favor, power, salvation, just like the rest of us, if they don’t. They know they will be accused of trying to ‘dismantle’ the training. TIP has survived because it must replace those who leave with a new wave of vulnerable believers, all the while saying it is changing, always changing, always changing.
So I'll repeat. TIP will not be dismantled by those who expose abusive practices. Only the founder can dismantle TIP by holding onto the us/them divide built into the "construct" that perpetuates war and suffering, and by openly venting that those who try to correct abuse are disloyal and will lose their souls.
