To those who ask for proof
On so many occasions people have asked us to provide proof for this that or the other that has been written in criticism of Art of Living. The following comment left recently by an anonymous contributor in response to this comment sums up everything any of us could ever possibly say on the matter beautifully.
“Please help. thanks.”
Really, what kind of help do you think people here can give you? You have to help yourself. Some have shared their experiences in aol here. Take it or leave it. In fact, I would say, *leave it*. Use your own judgement and think through what happens to you and others in AoL and conclude what you may.
At the time of experiencing all those incidents, i dont think anyone here was ‘collecting proof’ to later start a blog and provide it all to the likes of you.
Those of us who have had similar experiences, it helps to share and get validated by others. No one forced you to read or believe all that is said.
And why should i reveal my identity? Have left Aol and moved on, and certainly wouldn’t like my employer and friends to know i was part of a cult (yes, believe it or not, out in the real world, outside your aol circles, there are many who think its a cult)!
What is the guarantee that my name, address, aol post(s) etc, would convince you that my experiences were true?
