Re: “I am Annoyed and Disappointed

I don't even live in the USA now, but have experienced friends trying to get me to do Landmark when I did, some pleasantly, some pushy. You know how people get when they start believing in something?! Yeah, like that.

I have nothing against cults or religions, or what ever people want to call LandMark. (they deny being a cult).
I know enough people whom have received the support and nurturing they never had as kids growing up in life, or spiritual roots (which wer'nt retarded) and Landmarck, like Millionaire Mind, Churches, group therapy, etc, through 'Criticle Mass', which is a very powerful thing-can change people, help them transform, etc, etc........but I do oppose the way people try to push or bully others to take the same path that they claim has liberated them.

At the few Landmark meetings, where your buddies 'invite' you, or even trick you to going (it happened to me), a whole show is put on, and people are so enthusiastic, happy, 'saved'. Keep in mind, it is a huge business...heh? and good for them.

But I did'nt get the feeling to be part of it. I would'nt even call it 'resistance'. I just follow my gut in life when ever I can, and Landmark is not the only path for enlightenment, growth, etc. Just because it's good for many, does not mean we all need to do LandMark to evolve as souls.

Poeple could just live and let live.
The fact that this restaurant IS a landmark participant's project, would make me NOT want to work for them, as I am not interested in Landmark, just as I would'nt work for a Hari Krishna, Christian, or other restaurants that has a purpose besides selling food. Being a free spirit, I stay away from these types of groups, as nice as they may be, or as many friends I have in them.
What they are doing in this restaurant, in my opinion, in some ways LACKS integrity. Its just not smart.
When people see that you are happy, etc, they come in their own time to investigate and inquire to what is it your doing which makes you so happy. But to push people in this way, reminds me of Jesus Freaks and Bible bashers, who are so not convinced themselves, that they have to convince others to feel rightous!

So, don't work there. Let them have their click of like minded folk. Birds of a feather flock together. Sure, it may not be totally legal, but why make it your battle? Someone else, who just loves ligitation can take it on....
