A cult will tell you that you are sinful, broken, in error or weak
These are entities that take power away from the individual and vest it in the leader or group. The individual then becomes at the mercy of those who are in power.
You are a powerful individual who creates your own reality. No group or institution has power over you.
But you must understand, own and use the power you have correctly. It is not enough to know that your thoughts create your reality, you must learn the methods!
