Dangerous abuses, control over devotees

Mrs Andrea Good is involved in one of the most dangerous aspects of sects, the mental and psychological abuse over a group by raising pseudo precepts, which she herself breaks on a daily basis, but feels empowered to enforce on others. She has since the earliest times with this community placed herself above everyone else, and playing a very dangerous game of judge, jury and executioner with a good number of members of the community. Her actions amount to criminal deeds, particularly when these manipulate, distort, and affect the capacity of people to discern right from wrong, when involved in mind games and manipulations by someone who sells herself as the co-guru.

The following text written by Mrs Andrea Good illustrates both her mindset, but also the extent to which she goes in justifying, the detention of adults, the theft of their belonging as the confiscation of a toy, the belittling of human dignity through this public sermon of humiliation of the victims.

There is not the slightest trace of compassion in her actions, just an extremely dangerous deviant manipulation that creates drastic psychological and emotional impact on people in the community. Here is the text she writes  on 7th Dec 2012 in the public part of Google Group, under the title :

“Insight on the Glass Room”:

“Those of you in contact with Marici could remind her of this fact, as she is breaking “samaya” which is her agreement with the Guru in the form of the 11 precepts. It would be very helpful for her to recognize that she is “angry.”

She may go through many words to avoid admitting it. Each time she breaks “Samaya” she needs to go through the process of “repair” which is to openly show remorse for such a serious thing as breaking “Samaya” and this needs to become a habit with her. It needs to be called every time she breaks it….thousands of times if necessary.

Now, as to this post and its usefulness, here is another thing that we in the Sangha can concentrate on. We can, out of a sense of duty, when dealing with other Sangha members, tend to be heavy-handed. We learn these reactions in Society especially when bringing up a family, but it can lack the quality of “just love and trust that it will work out.”

And when it comes to absorbing harmful energy, (one knows when this happens as defilements can arise and cause us suffering when we are working with someone else, we unwittingly take on their karma and process) that the glass case with the smoker in it is a wonderful way to deal compassionately with this person and not inhale their smoke!

We can radiate love on all sentient beings. We can also imagine keeping such people who are processing in a glass room or just a “containment bubble” to keep their process in a defined boundary that does not spread harmful energy.

Further Insight on the Glass Room

“When in the Sangha, it is vital that all speech is peaceful, truthful, and nurturing (constructive).

When allegations are made, the person making the allegation needs to understand that it is a very, very serious thing for that person and the Sangha, and that person needs to take responsibility for their speech.

Sarcasm and black humor is unwarranted under any condition. And when making a grave accusation, such sarcasm and black humor is simply a form of untruthfulness. Here are the basic precepts that constitute this person’s failure to upkeep samaya with the Guru.

Precept 3. Forsake lying, allegations, counter-allegations, belittling and spreading falsehood through baseless gossip.

Furthermore, the loss of this person’s machinery was a direct result of breaking the precepts.

If you find your child/shishya using certain technology to do something which is harmful to self and others, the Parent/Guru (under whose care she placed herself by her own will) removes the object. It is odd for the child/shishya to request the return of the machinery or the purchase of new ones so that she may do the same thing again.

We have been covering Attachment.

Negativity we have also covered.

Negative speech is the main part of Negativity, as negativity is expressed through speech. To avoid negative speech in others, especially in the Sangha it is good to remind them of the Aim.

If the habit persists, there is only one way:

Avoid them altogether.

You know in your heart what feels comfortable and true. If anyone makes you feel complicated and persists to do so, then they are not the Path.

All that is not the Path is best shunned…not read, not thought, not entertained. Avoided altogether.

Guru is here. He will take care of it. Do you Trust Guru?

If the answer is yes, stay.

If the answer is no, then it is time to find your own path and this Google Group is not for you.

Precept 4. Forsaking philosophies or ways that make boundaries of divisiveness and difference of opinion, take up the Satya Marga – The Perfect Path.

When we sympathize with such a person who is overcome by the need to express negativity, this sympathy is not compassion. We prolong that person’s pain by endorsing their personal drama and lead them to avoid contemplating the lessons in karma.

LoveTruthJoy”

 

Further Insight on the Glass Room continued

“Yes, and there was something else that happened that made this post very pertinent in another way, and it can help all of us.

Often we tend to easily absorb harmful energy from other people’s “process,” which is why certain members of the Sangha need to be “banned” because it is like someone in the family smoking in the living room. When someone is processing their deeply felt anger and negativity, they should not be positioned to harm other family members.

So, if they continue and show no remorse for their behavior, they cannot be in the family.

It doesn’t matter what the “content” is. That is the personal drama and karma. That person needs to take responsibility for the behavior that they are displaying in this very moment.

Furthermore we can take on that karma as the result is the most grave unwholesome action within the Dharma: separation within the Sangha.

We should avoid taking the karma of others until we have dissipated our own. A pure being such as a True Guru is capable of taking on the Karma of others, but it is also His choice in what way he will accomplish it. His choice is Pure Dharma.

LoveTruthJoy”

 

Conclusion

When Mrs Andrea Good attempts to brainwash people and to tell them who is in the family or who is out, she is breaking herself her own vows. She has no merit, no qualification, no authority, no knowledge that may allow her to be the judge and executioner over other members of the community or outside of the community.

All living beings are in one and the same family, excluding anyone is excluding herself from any practice of compassion. Ms Takacs which is called ‘Marici’ in the writings of Mrs Andrea Good, was detained illegally in 2012 in Halkhoriya. All her belongings were taken/stolen from her, these are the facts, the writings of Mrs Andrea Good are the justification and the distortion of those crimes into a mind game of her own construction.
