About 3 million people visit the Taj Mahal every year. This blog was viewed about 44,000 times in 2010. If it were the Taj Mahal, it would take about 5 days for that many people to see it.

 

In 2010, there were 54 new posts, growing the total archive of this blog to 59 posts. There were 82 pictures uploaded, taking up a total of 30mb. That’s about 2 pictures per week.

The busiest day of the year was February 16th with 713 views. The most popular post that day was One Company Resources, Energetix and Anakiri layoffs – PART I.

Where did they come from?

The top referring sites in 2010 were facebook.com, twitter.com, ow.ly, en.wordpress.com, and mail.yahoo.com.

Some visitors came searching, mostly for gregg hake, gregg hake deerfield, gregg hake cult, what happened to deerfield, and missing deerfield.

  1. My good friend Lara Mealor once said, social media is like word of mouth on steroids! She was so right!

  2. I came across your site and have found it most interesting. I lived in community with Grant, Jane, and Jane’s husband before Grant in the 1980s. Much of what is said about community members and working in the leader-owned business in these posts was true back then. A number of us left the community and were “excommunicated,” that is, marginalized or ignored. I would be interested in communicating with some of you at some point. One thing I have come to realize over the years is that you have to trust your internal spiritual sensing of what is right, your “gut,” no matter what things look like or what words are said. There is truth behind what you were taught in spite of what seemed like a lot of craziness.

    • Tell us more about your experience being under Jane Clarke control.

      • A little background. I realize a lot of people who were later members of the Georgia group have no real concept of what the Emissaries were about or have a jaded view of them. It is important to understand that what Grant and Jane created was a new church, a break-awat group from the Emissaries. This is usually called a schism. My impression is that they did not want to go through the changes the Emissaries were going through at the time, which was a complete break down of structure and the end of the leadership function previously known as “the focalizer.” The average member of a community or group would have to begin to do more thinking for themselves! It was during this time that Grant and Jane began to offer their own services and begin to hint at what Grant was. Everyone did not buy into this. Those people left the community or association with the Georgia group.

        It is hard to say how much of what was being taught by the community leaders was actually believed by them. I mean by the “community leaders” the inner group surrounding Jane and her husband(s). Once one of that group pulled me aside and laid it on the line: only 10% of what they were teaching was real or being actualized, the other 90% was belief or show. That was a little disconcerting at the time. I felt that might be true for them, but my overall sense of the energy offered by Martin Exeter, the leader of the Emissaries, was real and genuine. There always seemed to me to be a disconnect from the energy I felt from the services offered by Martin Exeter and how the local group was run. Ultimately I came to the realization that no one can sort out the truth for you, you have to do that for yourself. I would pose the question here that because someone tells you that something good in your life is bad, do you have to believe it because that person is an “authority?”

        What I have never been able to figure out is why people would waste their time teaching something they didn’t believe in. If some of the leaders believed this was a cult, why would any sane, rational person keep up the act. Why would someone string other people along, essentially torturing them, if they knew in their hearts that it was all bogus? Life is too short to waste one’s time on fake things.

        When we go through life we sometimes meet people who are addicted to power. I don’t know whether Jane and Grant and their close in family were addicted to power. I won’t conjecture their reasons or their actions in creating a new religion. They may have believed everything they taught. They may believe most of it or only some of it. At the very least they had viewpoints, stated them, and were comfortable in being in positions of authority or felt that was there role in life.

        The question is: are humans fatally wounded and doomed to act out their unconscious psychic dramas out on others or is true human spiritual growth real? If there is a God, then there is salvation for us as individuals. Groups are made of individuals at different levels of consciousness and we need to know that. Everyone is not equally developed. A relationship is a small community. Have you ever been in relationship with someone and it didn’t work out? Were you and the other acting consciously or unconsciously on and towards each other? We’ve probably all been there. My thought/question for the ex-members is have you found yourself on your real spiritual journey after iAO?

    • What is the difference between all what has been written in this blog, and the description of EDL here?
      http://www.factnet.org/cults/Emissaries_Divine_Light/Barbara_Clearbridge.html

      I think both describe very well the characteristics of a destructive cult.

  3. That’s awesome!
    It is very interesting to see in numbers how many people has read this blog.
    Well, we shouldn’t be surprised. The times that I have written on Facebook the information about these people, their tactics and their cult, I’ve had contacts actually telling me that they already knew about this from other sources!! People keep reading about it everywhere. I’ve seen it in Twitter.
    It’s amazing how social media works, indeed.

  4. Very interesting search terms: gregg hake, gregg hake deerfield, gregg hake cult, what happened to deerfield, and missing deerfield.
    I actually found you guys by searching Grant Clarke and Chuck Reddick
