Kim Amourette' Witness Blog/Statement: Is Desteni A Scam?

Postby kim amourette » 23 Aug 2013, 19:20

Day 1: I stand Witness to the Desteni Organization, by Kim Amourette - My Introduction to Desteni


My name is Kim Amourette and I am from Kortrijk, Belgium. I was born here in Belgium in 1987, I graduated from high school at Heilig Hart Instituut in Heverlee and I have a degree in Neuro-Energetic Kinesiology, which I received in June, 2013 at the Souldance Institute in Moorsele. I joined the Desteni Research Group through the Equal Life Foundation in late 2007.

In 2007, I made my first introduction into the Desteni Group and became familiar with the Desteni Material. I took my first steps in applying the tools they presented for Self-Change, which is Writing to Freedom, Self-Forgiveness and Self-Corrective Application. Though it wasn't until August 2011 that I made the decision and full commitment to participate in the Research Activities and walk as a member of the Desteni Research Team. This is when I also started walking the Desteni I Process, to assist and support myself in my process of Self-Change and Self-Development through applying the tools of Writing, Self-forgiveness and Self-corrective Application.

First a little background information on myself:
When I was about 20 years old I started a 'search' for 'the truth'. This was due to having lived a life of experiencing extreme social anxiety and uncomfortability with myself in relation to my own inner experiences, my physical body and in relation to my environment. I had gotten to a point within my mind's development where I basically felt so lost and confused pretty much all the time and felt as though my life was entirely directionless, that I had contemplated suicide to rid myself of the burden of what I felt was going on inside of myself but which I could not in any way categorize, explain or place into perspective.

I searched within many Spiritual books for direction and guidance and I went into investigating the so-called 'hidden truths' about reality, which were mostly conspiracy theories -- to simply give myself a sense of importance and purpose as I did not in any way experience this when it came to 'real life' interaction with my daily reality. What I find fascinating, looking back on that time, was that no matter how far I went in my search, watching video's and documentaries and reading articles and books - was that there was always this experience of 'hope', like a longing for 'more' and a feeling that what I had read, tried and applied was 'not enough'. It was as though, the more I 'searched', the bigger the feeling grew that I had not found enough and that I somehow needed to 'know more' about the world and about 'myself' as a 'spiritual being'.

I then encountered the Desteni Website and I was immediately very eager to participate on the forum and to follow the steps and guidelines presented as the 'Process of Self-Realization'. After all, I was really desperate for answers and for a 'way out' of the experience of myself in my life, so I was basically willing to try anything. A cool point within how the Desteni Website presented these extremely practical tools of Writing, Self-Forgiveness, Self-corrective application and Breathing, was that the experience of 'hope' within myself, which I had been experiencing all throughout my 'Search-for-the-truth binge' and that had been my motivator to 'keep looking for answers', to a degree simmered down because now it was no longer about gathering more and more information to, as described in the Spiritual Books, 'feed my Energy Light Body' -- this time it was about doing Self-Introspection and Self-Investigation to, in that way, provide the answers to my questions by and for myself, using these specific tools which could be applied by anyone.

The Desteni Organization/Website/Group did not charge money for this information, they did not push me to go and buy this or that book to 'enhance my Spiritual Awakening' and in no way did I feel 'left out' of some vital information because I did not have the money to pay for this or that course or workshop, in fact they did not ask money for anything --- they offered these tools of Life-Support unconditionally, which is an extremely rare thing in this world where 'self-development' has become an industry for the Rich. This was probably the most determining point that separated Desteni from any other Spiritual Path or Teaching that I had up to that point come accross - is that:

They shared their information free of charge, for anyone to utilize to their benefit
They offered real live support on the forum with beings that had already been walking their process for a while, using the same tools in the same way as was presented and suggested on the website/forum - also unconditionally and with full and equal consideration for and attention to each participant on the forum
There was no Guru, Master or 'Higher Being' that demanded attention and followers - the Forum was a place of support among equals, where it was real down-to-earth beings communicating in a simplistic manner using normal words and expressions that were always to the point and practical and understandable for anyone
There was no implication that you in some way needed 'more' than what was already shared on the forum, in the video's and in the articles, to assist and support you in your process of self-change and self-understanding
No one was excluded from participating in the group or from benefiting from the support and material on the forum in any way due to their financial situation



To be continued in Day 2 ...

Day 2: Is Desteni A Scam - What's up with the whole 'Apply the Tools' Point?

This blogpost is a continuation from "Day 1: I stand Witness to the Desteni Organization, by Kim Amourette - My Introduction to Desteni" and I am continuing from the following statement:

The Desteni Organization/Website/Group did not charge money for this information, they did not push me to go and buy this or that book to 'enhance my Spiritual Awakening' and in no way did I feel 'left out' of some vital information because I did not have the money to pay for this or that course or workshop, in fact they did not ask money for anything --- they offered these tools of Life-Support unconditionally, which is an extremely rare thing in this world where 'self-development' has become an industry for the Rich. This was probably the most determining point that separated Desteni from any other Spiritual Path or Teaching that I had up to that point come accross.


Since when I first came in contact with the Desteni Organization and the Equal Life Foundation in 2007, they were in their beginning stages of introducing themselves into the Internet and making their presence known. Over the years, slowly but surely, people found the website, started applying the tools for themselves, and those that actually applied the tools found out that it works and also became part of the Desteni Research Team through the Equal Life Foundation, while those that did not apply the tools quickly left.

This aspect of 'applying the tools' is a very interesting part of the functioning of the Desteni Group, as it is only those that apply the tools over a large period of time who show their dedication and resolution through having walked the necessary process of disciplining themselves. This is the most essential part that separates Desteni and the Equal Life Foundation from any other activist organization that claim they want to Change the world - is that: those that form the bases of the Desteni Group and the ELF have to actually prove their stance through consistently and visibly walking a process of self-transformation, which can be witnessed by all through their Journey To Life Blogs and vlogs and their participation on the forum. Within this, the part of being visible to all is quite important because in that way, everyone can see/read who you are and what you stand for directly in your words as your daily writing - and also, this guarantees total transparency with regards to what and especially 'who' is the Desteni Organization and the ELF.

It is this visibility of 'who' each being really is within and as themselves, that is missing within all the essential institutions in our world that hold our lives in their hands. For instance, we are supposed to blindly trust that our politicians, bank directors, Company CEO's and NGO Executives will make decisions that are best for everyone and that they are beings with integrity that hold the interests of all the people at heart - yet we have no way of seeing who they really are because we have accepted and allowed a system where the Self-Interest of the Individual is protected and where things like Integrity is basically dead. Yet what we've failed to realize and understand is that this accepted overriding of integrity by self-interest has its consequences in that we are basically accepting and approving that our politicians are corrupt as they will only make decisions that are in their own best interest rather than in the interest of all.

I have been walking the Journey to Life and the Desteni 'I' Process for about a Year now and from personal experience, I can state that it is through walking something every day, consistently, that I prove to myself as well as everyone else Who I am and what I stand for. It is all too easy to say and claim that you are 'for world peace' or 'world change' and that you 'want to stop abuse', but to actually prove that you stand by your words in physical reality is a whole other pair of sleeves. Your words after all cannot be real and cannot hold any value if and when they are not being applied in full measure - and the biggest problem we face with our current political arena/structure is that there are many words being spilled but no living proof -- as we do not demand this proof from them because most likely, if we were to start demanding absolute transparency, consistency and a Living Statement and Testimony of Who they Are from our Politicians, we'd be total Hypocrites if we wouldn't do it ourselves. And so we allow our politicians to keep Secrets and to be dishonest, so that we can keep our Secrets.

Within the Desteni Group/Organization, we realized that if politics is ever to be trustworthy and Best for All, we as possible future politicians, and if not politicians then also as the future generation of Humanity, should become this absolute trustworthiness, consistency and transparency that we would demand from any Leader --- which is thus the starting point for sharing the 'Journey To Life' as the Process that we walk in 'Re-Creating' ourselves to become that which is Best for All. Where, it becomes clear that those who are really dedicated to Commit themselves to what is Best for All, will be consistent in walking this daily Journey, and those who were only speaking empty words like our politicians are today, they will eventually drop out and give up. And that is how one tells the difference between what is Real and what is Fake and so what/who can be trusted and what/who cannot , it's in the Consistency as the application of Self-Discipline.

Personally, I was never even remotely Disciplined in anything that I have ever done in my life, I had turned 'giving up' into an art as i pretty much gave up on any kind of project that i started. I'd come up with these grand ideas and ideals of what I want to do and accomplish or how I want to contribute to changing the world, but that was where it remained, in the 'world of Ideas' - which was always more about my personal longing to feel important than a true care for this world and reality. It has been through walking with Desteni and the ELF through the Journey to Life and the Desteni 'I' Process, where I am being tested in my resolve everyday, that my ability to discipline myself in working out a project and so actually manifesting an idea, started taking shape. And for this, I am most grateful and because of this, I am motivated to continue walking this Journey to Prove to myself and All of Life that we as Humans are Capable and Able to take Responsibility for Ourselves and our Existence and Re-Create, Re-Shape and Re-Program ourselves to What is Best for All.

Day 3: Is Desteni A Scam? - The Passing of Bernard Poolman

Bernard Poolman passed away in the early hours of the 11th of August, 2013. His heart stopped beating.

Bernard Poolman was one of the founders of the Desteni Organization and the Equal Life Foundation. Now, because how Desteni and the ELF operates is so different from any other organization or group that claim they want to 'change the world', 'save the planet', 'save the animals' or they are advocating 'world peace' and because within this, people seemed to be having a hard time labeling or understanding Desteni and the ELF - there were some that started labeling Desteni as a 'Cult' and Bernard Poolman as the 'Cult Leader'. Where, if you were to investigate the word 'Cult', it's an interesting concept. It is particularly a word that has a very 'broad' meaning as it does not refer to any specific physical reality based organism/thing/object/structure rather than to an 'idea' in the Mind of the Individual, which is therefore very susceptible to personal interpretation and experience-attachment to the word.

The word 'Cult', is an interesting word in that it is like a 'code' that, when spoken or written, triggers all sorts of emotional reactions within individuals hearing or reading the word --- which is what makes this word so perfect as a brainwashing-tool. Brainwashing in this context is in some way sabotaging the ability of an individual to reason/think/see for themselves, which is what is primarily being done through deliberately playing into the emotional responses of the Individual due to how Emotional Reactions/experiences cause the human to act and think irrationally.

And so, it's interesting how those beings who will label/judge the Desteni Organization as a 'Cult' are those that, because they could not immediately understand or categorize Desteni within their mind based on their personal knowledge of 'how things work', reacted with Fear within themselves - which is generally how the Ego will react to anything that challenge its preconceived 'Allknowingness' - and so started using a Word that would specifically reflect their Fear and that would give them the idea that they 'know' what Desteni is, that they can categorize it and label it within their mind, which then could transform their experience of Fear into Superiority and settle their Ego back into its position of perceived control over reality through personal Knowledge.

And then, in all their arrogance, they will attempt to brainwash others by using this word, trying to deliberately get others to also react with Fear so they would be motivated by this fear to 'enter the ranks of the Anti-Cultists', so as to validate their Ego-stance of 'I am Right in how I see and perceive Reality', which serves to Cover up and hide how they've allowed themselves to Brainwash themselves within the Illusion of the Ego's apparent 'Allknowingness'. This is the Basic strategical tactics of any old Dictator.

Now, the reason why I am bringing up this whole 'Cult'-point in relation to the passing of Bernard Poolman - and this is specifically for those who have allowed themselves to participate in such bullshit - is that his passing will not in any way affect the functioning and application of the Desteni Organization and the Equal Life Foundation. And this is because those standing with and as the Desteni Organization do so because they have made a decision for themselves about who they are and what they stand for and as, where each individual is Equal and One with the whole. And it is exactly this 'Oneness and Equality' point that those brainwashed by their own Ego could not and cannot grasp or understand as their Mind is trained to only comprehend Hierarchical structuring as a reflection of their personal desire to be the dictator that stand at the Top of the Pyramid - and the reason why Desteni scares them so much. Where, it will be proven that Bernard Poolman was no 'Cult Leader' and Desteni was/is no 'Cult' --- and, those beings that have been arrogant enough to attack Desteni from the starting point of their own fear of the Unknown without in any way having walked with Desteni will be exposed for their Evil ways in that, what they had been accusing Desteni and Bernard Poolman of, was exactly what they were doing - yet, they did not have the integrity to investigate themselves and understand how their own mind works and so never realized that they were just fooling themselves all along.

So, don't allow yourself to be fooled by these people that are essentially only fooling themselves by trying to spread fear through abusing Words. We invite you to walk with us and to see for yourself who we are. Investigate Desteni and the Equal Life Foundation, we Dare you.

Day 4: Is Desteni A Scam? - Equality is for Losers

A fascinating point that I have witnessed during the time that I have spent walking with the Desteni Organization, applying the tools of Self-Honesty, Self-Forgiveness and Self-Correction and especially having publicly shown my commitment, dedication and support for the Principle of Equality that Desteni stands for - is that there is a lot of resistance from people with regards to the word 'Equality' specifically. Where the Desteni Organization has been named and labelled many things, only for consistently using this word 'Equality'.

I mean, if Desteni was standing for 'Oneness' only, and so not 'Oneness and Equality', it would not get so much attacks and resistance - because the word 'Oneness' seems to be an acceptable word that fits into the model of competition that exists within the human mind and human society, because of how 'Oneness' as a word is more like just an idea - like 'Yeah, we're all One', but it doesn't imply an actual real change in how we live here on this planet and specifically within Human Society and so, it's an acceptable word in our Human consciousness because it doesn't challenge the Status Quo of how live and exist in this world.

Whereas, in the word 'Equality', there's already an invitation present to look at the term in a more practical way -- probably because the words 'Equity' and 'Quality' is resonantly captured in the word. And these two words are actually very 'physical' and pertaining to our daily living reality. And so, it's fascinating that - when we hear the word 'Equality', we're subconsciously triggered in our mind to already consider a Change in Who we are and how we live our lives because of the 'realness' within and as the word. This triggers a preset emotional reaction of fear within ourselves as a 'natural' fear of losing that which we 'have' as what we've come to define as our 'survival' in this world, which is our entire 'Lifestyle'. And from there we automatically will experience a 'resistance' towards the word 'Equality' due to the subconscious understanding of what this word implies. All in One simple Word...

This entire process of what a word can trigger in an individual on a pure subconscious level, I had no idea of or insight in when I first started walking with Desteni. Where, in the beginning, I would react emotionally within myself when confronted with an individual that would outright attack, condemn and even threaten the Desteni Organization and its members, because I did not understand where this heavy resistance/attack was coming from, what it was that triggered this reaction within people. Because, from my perspective, the concept and principle of Equality made sense - it made sense to me that ending suffering in this world not only requires 'Oneness', as the more accepted term associated specifically with 'spirituality', but most of all it requires 'Equality' as a restoration of the 'Quality' of the 'Equity' that is this physical World called 'Earth'. In other words, to change the way we live as human beings through changing all the grand structures and institutions in this world that direct and determine our lives, such as economics, business infrastructure, the schooling system, the media and politics --- so that each human being and, dare I say it, each 'life-form' that is born in this world may enjoy a Life of Quality.

I personally stand witness to the fact that Desteni does not pose any form of threat to any individual in this world. Desteni does not in any way promote violence, aggression, hatred or blame towards any group or individual in this world - on the contrary, I have experienced and witnessed for myself in walking alongside members of the Desteni Organization that the organization provides support for individuals to be able to walk through and away from such petty experiences and 'personality-traits' and to explore and develop their ability to change themselves into someone that possesses all the qualities and assets one would look for in a Leader - like Honesty, integrity, compassion, patience, empathy and humility. This, for instance through the Desteni 'I' Process, an online course for Self-Development.

And so, initially I could not understand what it was that people were attacking Desteni for, why they saw Desteni as some kind of threat and found it necessary to even rally up other people to be 'against Desteni' and to ostracize the Organisation by any means necessary. There have been many instances where a form of organized bullying took place on social media (See Example Here), specifically targeting the Desteni Organisation and its members. Where, now I understand that individuals who allow themselves to be easily directed by their emotional reactions, will act on their subconscious reaction and resistance to the word 'Equality' and actually go over to an 'attack', without even understanding or being aware of what they are doing and where there behavior is really coming from.

So, if you find yourself in any way reacting with resistance to the word Equality, investigate yourself, investigate your mind and realize that this reaction is part of the brainwashing program of the Human mind that will always only consider its own survival. Where, those that will be so arrogant to attack Desteni for using the word 'Equality', are those that are the most dangerous individuals in this world, entirely brainwashed by their own self-interest --- that they have lost all ability to apply some common sense and realize that to allow a system of Competition to exist in this world and reality, is to sign our own death-sentence. We only have one planet - it should be obvious to us that a system of Equality, where all life is valued equally, is the only way to ensure our collective survival.

Because, I mean, if the Mind's perspective of 'Me, Me, Me!!' were correct, we wouldn't be dependent on other life-forms for our survival in this world. This world IS Oneness and it requires Equality to place this understanding and realization into practical application.

What I have learned so far in walking with Desteni, is that the Mind's experience and perspective of reality cannot be trusted - and that, if we apply a little common sense and actually investigate how reality really functions, we may see that we've been fooled to believe and place our trust in all these Ideas that support self-interest but are not in fact in the best interest of all and so also not of ourselves.
