Blog has been a tipping point for my decision making
September 10, 2010
I want to thank you all for sharing the info in this (and other) blogs. just want to say the info in the blog has provided enormous clarity, and conformation of what i already started feeling about aol but uncomfortable to speak up.
i stumbled upon this blog a few weeks ago. i want to let you all know that your (and klim’s) blog is helpful. and your work to share it in the open is much appreciated.
i am a (soon to be ex-) teacher with the aol. i have seen much hanky panky in aol, but still continued to teach because i felt that the individual’s values and vision can still be lived even while the group’s ‘management’ is non ideal. however i find that it only causes great internal conflict in me.
reading your blog has been a tipping point for my decision making. i am sure many more aol teachers are reading this blog as well, and many are nodding in agreement with the truth presented here. THANK YOU

Eng-And is from Argentina, right? I’m from Argentina and at least in Buenos Aires, AOL is becoming *VERY* popular. And they are aiming at young people!
I have taken the yes+ course and, to tell you the truth, I liked it. However, when I took it for the second time, I felt that something was strange: there were many aol and sri sri ravi shankar fanatics. Fanatics who gave their 100% for the course. Honestly, they creeped me out. That’s why I researched the web: I knew that there was something hidden, something dark within the foundation.
After reading these blogs, I immediately stopped recomending the yes+ couse to my friends. Many young people are appalled with our post-modernist way of life and I thought, at least after taking the first course, that with aol they could improve their lifestyle. However, if feeling better in this world means joining a group of fanatics…I have to say, “no, thank you.”
