Born into the Children of God: Part 1 of 3: My life in a religious sex cult and my struggle for survival on the outside

Born into the Children of God can either be read as a full-length eBook or in 3 serialised eBook-only parts.

This is PART 1 of 3.

Born to French hippy parents attracted to the religious movement by the unusual mix of evangelical Christianity, free love and rejection of the mainstream, from an early age Natacha was brainwashed to believe she had a special destiny - that she was part of an elite children's army bestowed with superpowers that would one day save the world from the Anti-Christ.

Torn away from their parents, Natacha and her siblings were beaten on a daily basis and forced to sing and dance for entertainment in prisons and malls. Natacha never expected to live to adulthood.

At the age of 18 Natacha escaped, but quickly found herself hurtling through a world she had no understanding of. Alone, and grappling to come to terms with an unbelievable sense of betrayal, she was stuck in a kind of limbo - confused and unable to feel part of either way of life.

Natacha is one of the lucky ones; not all of her family survived the battle to shed the shame and pain of their past. To date over 40 ex-Children of God members of Natacha's generation have committed suicide.

All Natacha ever wanted was to feel normal, but escaping the cult was only the beginning. Shocking, moving, but ultimately inspiring, this is Natacha's full story; it is both a personal tale of trauma and recovery, and an expose of the secret world of abuse hidden behind commune walls.

100 Deviations: The Life and Teachings of His Holiness Sivarama Swami

This book continues our series detailing the teachings of those claiming to be successor diksa, or initiating gurus to Srila Prabhupada, the original guru of ISKCON (International Society for Krishna Consciousness, or Hare Krishna movement).

This series provides the viewpoints of those claiming to be Srila Prabhupada's successors, via their own words. In this way, though ISKCON's members may argue that "we do not accept the ISKCON Revival Movement and its ritvik philosophy", they cannot argue that they refuse to accept the words emanating from the "lotus mouths" of persons whom they accept as being as good as God.

Though this book is titled 100 Deviations: The Life and Teachings of His Holiness Sivarama Swami, readers should note that it is not that we are alleging that the Swami is deviating. Rather, it is the statements and actions of Sivarama Swami documented in this book, which prove that the Swami is himself admitting he is deviating. Therefore, anyone upset or disturbed at the contents of this book must take up the matter with the source of the contents of this book, which is Sivarama Swami himself.

Since this book is Sivarama Swami presenting his own life and teachings in his own words, it can thus be considered as an "autobiography" of this ISKCON guru.

"How much respect is meant to be offered to Vaisnavas [...] we should be very careful in terms of our interpersonal dealings amongst Vaisnavas, particularly when we speak, because in Kali-yuga, especially in our sort of communication age, everyone is free to speak and say anything about anyone else. So, number one - we should not criticize others."

- HH Sivarama Swami

"It is a matter of how to deal with, restrict, constrain JPS (Jayapataka Swami) in a way that does not break him, his disciples and also protects the Society from him [...] From the evidence I would say that he is a sick person, obsessed, and that obsession makes lying or duplicitous behaviour fully reconcilable with service to Prabhupada and Krishna Consciousness."

- HH Sivarama Swami

Abraham Abulafia: Meditations on the Divine Name

Amidst the rich panoply of Jewish Kabbalah, Abraham Abulafia (1240-1291) resonates the most with modern, philosophically minded seekers of direct mystical experience. Abulafia creatively combined Maimonides' Guide of the Perplexed and the ancient Sefer Yesira into an integrated method of concentrating on the Divine Name that opens the path to fulfilling the soul's deepest spiritual longings. Intense practice of Abulafia's meditative techniques propels the attentive soul into a state of awakened receptivity where the active divine influence can reach down to meet and illuminate the human intellect.

Abulafia was unique amongst Jewish mystics in providing precise instructions for personal spiritual practice. I have translated meditations from three of Abulafia's major mystical handbooks "that reveal the true knowledge of the Divine Name" as he puts it. These particular texts achieved a wide underground circulation amongst Jewish mystic elites despite a severe rabbinical ban on Abulafia promulgated by Shlomo ben Adret.

-Abulafia's Life of the World to Come (extant in more manuscript copies that the Zohar!) is quoted verbatim in Yehuda Albotini's Sulam HaAliya.

-Abulafia's Book of Desire is quoted in the fourth, censored part of Chaim Vital's Shaarei Kedusha.

-Selections from Abulafia's Light of the Intellect were printed in Moshe Cordovero's Pardes Rimonim.

Abulafia's meditations have intrinsic moral prerequisites that guard against their misuse. These techniques can provide short, liminal leaps into revelatory states of consciousness and the adept needs a kind of measured boldness to attempt this. Abulafia repeatedly emphasizes returning back and integrating these threshold experiences into one's daily life.

Abulafia was an eclectic thinker who absorbed and adapted Sufi and even Yogic influences into his mystical toolkit. While the affinities between Abulafia's methods and the ancient Hekhalot (Heavenly Palace) rituals are obvious, they also have interesting structural similarities to Graeco-Coptic magical invocations like those found in PGM XIII 646-1077.

Translating Abulafia is an impossible task. These gleanings hope to prompt deeper study of Abulafia's oeuvre that can provide a rich breviary of numerically equivalent concepts and rigorous linguistic interpretations to ponder and apply in one's spiritual path.
