Should I attend?

I was recently invited to go support a graduate of the Landmark Forum a week ago. And I, of course was given a sales pitch. I took it and signed up for a forum in October and I am now starting to have doubts about going. Part of the reason why I went was to support my friends who graduated, but the main reasons were to succomb to my curiousity and to know whether I can have the same influences my friends had.

I believe that I am fair-minded, but I do know that power of excitement can be so infectious that it drew me to sign up. The next days after it, I started to have doubts, wondering how long this will last and how far must I go with the seminars to feel complete. My friends have gladly signed up for the advance courses and I wonder what goes on in their minds that they feel the need to do more than what the main Forum has already suggested.

I then remembered an old friend of mine who attended the PSI programs (which I assume contain the same agenda). I met her years after she attended and graduated from the program. She told me stories and all the positive reinforcements she received from them, but their teachings didn't seem to affect her decisions or choices (I heard the importance of knowing the difference between decisions and choices). She still seemed lost and lacked the confidence that PSI tried to instill in her.

Don't we all acquire these teachings eventually through experience? After all experience seems to always have more bearing on our lives more than what we read or hear about what lives should be.

I'm not trying to knock the Landmark Forum because it has done the people I know some good. But now I wonder what really drew me to go. I think it's the feeling of being left out of something. Is that really a good reason?
