i have a question about cults

I am fed up with religion and recently have been looking at Echkankar which says even though it calls itself the religion of light and sound it isn't a religion but freedom etc. I started to think about cults and any spiritual organizations that say that their way is the only way is really a cult? So how does one move forward spirituality without getting mixed up in any cult as I am beginning to think they all are?

    This is not an easy question to answer, however I will attempt to try from a spiritual perspective. But first, lets try to define cults.The dictionary has several meanings for the word cult, here are a few; A particular system of religious worship especially with reference to its rites, and ceremonies; 2 A group or sect bound together by veneration of the same thing, person, ideal, etc.3 A group having a sacred ideology and a set of rites centered around there sacred symbols. 4 A religion or sect considered to be false, unorthodox or extremeist under the direction of a charismatic leader. There are more definitions, but from these few, cults are not necessasarily evil, and may help those of similar conciousness, although some cults could be dangerous, you have to be careful. I believe to truly move forward spiritually, you have to work on yourself, everything you need is already within you. You don’t need an organization. Prayer, study, and meditation, are your spiritual tools, use these to discover the truth of your spirituality. When you seek truth, your spiritual destiny will start to reveal itself to you and every thing you need will start to appear in your life in the form of people, ideas, places, revelations,etc. God has already chosen you to allow his presence to express through you. In the bible the gospel of Matthew 7:7 states “Ask,and it shall be given to you; seek and you shall find;knock and it shall be opened unto you: for everyone that asketh recieveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be open.” These are some thoughts that spirit has revealed to me to share with you.
