  1. When I think about my time in the Way Corps, I don't think I ever really fully identified with being a minister. I mean I was invested, and spent my early adulthood trying to be one, but I was always suppressing a part of myself to do so. Since I left TWI, I have spent years trying to rediscover who I truly am, and what my own ambitions are. I have observed that a lot of people never find their way back to themselves. They want to recapture that thing they had where they were important, and listened to, and looked up to. They think that's who they are and nothing else feels right. And y
  2. Yeah, I suppose you are right. I remember him saying how he put it together because VPW thought it was masturbation. So that got him to sexuality. What is sexually immoral? (Adultery? no, that can't be right.) Homosexuality!
  3. Hey, y'all. Thinking about something; wondering if anyone has already looked into this. Starting from the premise that VPW and LCM were not original thinkers, but rather borrowed from the work of others, I have been thinking about how that factors into The Way's Genesis 3 teaching. I think this has been swept on the rug in the present teaching, but there has also never been a retraction. I am speaking of the teaching from The Way of Abundance and Power which interpreted the Genesis 3 story of Eve and the Serpent to have been Eve having had a lesbian experience with the serpent who had ta
  4. You make a good point. Heard it was like 3 couples. I'll see if I can find out.
  5. I heard they just M&A the ring leaders and left the rest intact. Not 100% that's it, but that's what my sources say.
  6. Interesting thread. I think the CP1 talk also lent itself to some OCD-ishness and overthinking somethings. We were drilled on attention to detail (not inherently bad) and tried to correct any tiny imperfection in things like mowing the grass and setting the table. Through this careful scrutiny of the "physicals" we might have perception in the spiritual. it also reminded me of a funny thought. We would sometimes chastise each for dumb mistakes saying, "Come on, man, this is like CP ZERO!"
  7. There's a group of Way Corps trying to actively reform TWI. They've engaged in some unfruitful letter writing campaigns with the BOD, and have a non-trivial number (by current numbers at least) of likeminded folks gathered. They seem to sincerely want to reform the way, most of them have been around way too long not to understand the futility of this. But we all need to walk our own path. They have been seeking an audience with the leadership to address grievances and in response they are being shunned. Magn3llis, M0ynihans, suspect Horn3ys will be next and anyone else who doesn't fall
  8. I heard recently that the M@gnelli's have left TWI. Anyone with details? Rico care to comment?
  9. Sometimes I miss old crazy pants. I remember is frothy commentary on current events with fondness. It was way more entertaining than the Way of Rosalie.
  10. That account is from several years ago. I was never convinced it was actually him.
  11. That's heavy. Still working on this.
  12. Totally forgot about that. I remember the postcard, forgot the Bahamas trip was a victory trip. I also remember the stay-cation. I went to the place they make BeerNuts and LaffyTaffy. (Two different places.)
  13. My folks tried to go back and get reinstated. Request rejected. Reason given: "Too old to complete the L.E.A.D. program".
  14. This Corps Alumni business is an abiding pain to me. I hate it so much. There were so many folks, sold out wayfers (my parents among them), who were dropped from the Corps for arbitrary reasons (well, maybe as you guys point out it was monetary), and they were so wounded by this. They had their whole self worth wrapped up in this identity, and they were understandably crestfallen when it was revoked. So the Corps Alumni "status" comes along as a consolation prize. But even with that, they were jerks - "oh, we're not giving this to just anybody" you have to be the best of the best finest
  15. So not cool of you to get this stuck in my head.
