What you posted is in many ways truly scary. They are controlling us and making us do what they want all the while convincing us that we are the ones who want to do it. Just like telling us not to have anything to do with hypnotists yet they are the masters of it. The PO COBE in the hall I went to was so freaked out over hypnotists that he would not bring the Sunday paper into his home until he had thrown out out the comic section as it always had an add in for hypnotic weight loss or to stop smoking in it. He told it to the whole car group one day in service. Yet here he is being used to hypnotize and is being hypnotized himself.
It does not surprise me knowing what I know now that Rutherford used hypnosis in his teaching. I can totally see him doing that especially with Freud because what he taught was believed so strongly at the time.
What is amazing to me is that I was a born in and a true believer. It is all I ever knew, I trusted the religion with my life, I would never have questioned anything for the most part. It took pedophiles to finally wake me up but if not for that I would still be a die hard.
I just feel so betrayed. But it all makes sense now. The reason you cannot truly talk to a JW without them spouting some WT or Awake or saying well what does the slave have to say on the matter we must check the CD rom before we decide if we can to this or that. It is because they are hypnotized and cannot move with out OKing it with their master first.
I know last night I was saying something to my husband about bad things happening to good people like what happened ten years ago on 9-11-01 and he said "well there is this WT and it explains it all very well as to why Jehovah is allowing this to happen like why he allowed Rwanda to happen." He said he would give it to me when we got home. I was like WTF? I just wanted to talk to him not read some brain washed WT, I just wanted his take on things. It is like you just cannot talk to a JW as a person. The WT or some book has to be behind them to prove what they are saying because they just cannot use their minds to speak for them.
To me this is all kind of overwhelming to process in my own head. I know that the hypnotic state I was in is not as strong but I still think it is there when certain words or Bible verses are said to me it is like I can go right back into the trance of being a JW. I never even thought about the songs, but everyone is so right they are just dirges. Very few are happy and uplifting to sing.
Wow all of this is kind of overwhelming to me right now.
Violia thanks for the game that would have been a blast if I was still having to go but if I do have to attend any more I will be doing this game for sure. Thanks.
