Editor,

The question is, how can we be a thriving community?

One that tolerates cultivating our individual integrity. Do we allow unsubstantiated toxic rumors to persuade us?

Individuals have been expressing strong public opinions, airing grievances in an effort to degrade.

Freedom allows. A cohesive community doesn’t mean we all think or act in the same manner. Tolerance means not condemning our neighbor.

Each individual has the right to experience their own spiritual truth. Using discernment in accordance with one’s own inner guidance. Defining God through self awareness. Having a greater mind and connectedness that propels one forward, to a higher standard and evolution of living.

I for one, am no one’s pawn. A college educated free thinking sovereign individual.

These people do not need to express concern for my well being. Explicitly, when their concerns are steeped with distortions and manipulations of the truth. Genuine concern isn’t about spewing hearsay and unproven allegations. The real threat is the erroneous information.

JZ Knight has been an asset to this community, donating large amounts of money to our EMS system. We all benefit from better fire and medical attention. Yelm isn’t exactly a destination spot. The Ramtha’s School of Enlightenment brings in an influx of money due to visitors from around the world. Even during difficult economic times our community prospers.

At JZ Rose you are treated with dignity whether you purchase a 50 cent item or $500 item.

Anyone can be made to look bad when the truth is distorted or taken out of context.

The hilarious part about this little PR pamphlet is that even the author knows that she is preaching.....to no one.

Everyone in Yelm, well, other than the new foreigners and drifters that are continually moving in and out of town as a result of RSE, made up their mind on Judy Hampton long, long, long ago.

Everyone. There is not a single person who has lived in Yelm longer than one year that doesn't already know, and hasn't already made up their mind. This is why Steve Klein appears in dire need of Ex-Lax at most times. They write and write and write and write....and haven't convinced anyone.

Perhaps the most impotent words penned in America today have to come from the Ramsters. Few outside of Yelm even know who they are. Mainstream anything certainly hasn't a clue. Are they trying to convince the true-blue Lemurian acolyte? Of course not, they are already convinced. Do they think they convince Mom & Pop Yelm? LOL....that's absurd. They made their minds up long ago about Judy H. Ex-'students'? C'mon....

So who are they writing to? Who are they trying to convince? What audience is it that they are thinking that they sway? Ron Harding? David McCarthy? Oprah Winfrey?

It's like watching a donkey standing in the middle of the desert braying all night and all day. No one knows who the donkey is braying to, and the only thing listening is the jackrabbits....and they already know it's an ....

Funny, the only person spending a fortune trying to cover up the truth is the owner of the business! Over a million dollars to date? And that doesn't set off red flags? Their PR company suggested saying out of context for the words on those bigoted videos and they ran with it. Red devil lye and Prozac was hearsay and innuendo until they see how much evidence is already out there, and then the argument becomes, so what, you can buy it online, and absolutely no comment about the Prozac! I guess 'the truth shall set you free' is more of a marketing gimmick than an actual practice at the barn of enlightenment!

I think you have touched me. I still think she is a fraud but I will not belittle those who believe in her again as I have in the past who am I to pass judgement. I think you are right she is an asset to our little town. I have been in JZ Rose once I really liked the merchandise but can not tolerate the strong perfume fragrance. I can hardly walk down the laundry isle of the grocery store. I personally am not affected by her teachings I'm not a Christian in fact I'm an atheist and believe in none of this superstition.
