There are three ways for rats on a sinking power structures suspected of unethical or hypocritical behaviour to commonly act ; • head for the hills • head for the hills • head for the hills Me, I am a poor little church mouse but I vote with the rats. Good of you to deputise a response there ex-l.

You will remember the name Unilever for the Child Labour in India Scandal that the BBC blew the whistle on a year or so back. Unilever, refusing to disclose to BBC News Online any ideas it has to help the children, claimed it did not. Only its subsidiary Hindustan Lever was involved ... There are t...

Glad you're relaxed about it Zhuk mate. The way I see it, if a bit of honest argy bargy can help give someone back their soul then this forums served its purpose.

Further I am sure that Brahma Baba was involved many times, having had personal interaction with Avyakt Brahma on a number of occasions Yes, you are on more solid ground than I in terms of being able to recognise personality during Yoga. I never could do that. Even in the early personal meetings, w...

so I could always be wrong But the whole issue is a non-issue for me anyway really... I’m glad Zuck more or less talked himself out of his position, because I just don’t get his argument at all. Where as I’ve always liked Amaranthine’s car & driver analogy, still do actually, but I’m doubtful if li...

but who do they think they are they having Yoga with? Well now Howie, I’m sure we could speculate endlessly on that one. But in terms of the most vivid meditative moments I had as a bk, in truth I hadn’t the foggiest how much was self generated, bequeathed by the person I was staring at, or to what...

And that there are 800,000 BKs and so it won't take long for the other 100,000 to come. So time is short for us to change our sanskars Yes, I’ve heard similar, and you probably recall the stocktaking of water containers/purifiers at the turn of the century, or the touching that Dadiji had in the ea...

I still feel that the BK's as an institution will eventually come unstuck when the fiction it has conveyed as truth finally catches up with it. By that I mean things like changing the Murli. Sorry to be a pest, but I’m really not so sure Primal. I think many of the current flock are to some extent ...

I’m saddened to hear that such a lovely lady as Dadi Kumarka appears to have been stricken by Dementia. My own memories of her are wholly positive, in fact the experience of receiving drishti and the love and light I felt almost consumed by, when first introduced to her, is one of my most cherished ...

..Well, you could do a lot worse that becoming an Eckhart Tolle devotee. But if it's a yearning for a return to intense group bonding, you could try Worth Abbey. There was a documentary series about them on telly recently. Came across as genuinely spiritual and right nice folk with it. http://www.wo...

Books that make a good resource for ex-bks

Hi, It’s strange but I was just thinking of posting some of my own post-gyan reading material and “The power of Now” would have been high on the list. Guess that sort of synchronicity of thought is what Tolle would attribute as a symptom of the ‘emergence of consciousness’ into the world. :) Anyway ...

The BKs would teach this by telling BKs to be "civilised", i.e civil eyes, hence your vision was to be true and not deceiving. Guess I was just unlucky then? -I heard the civil eye yukti when it would crop up in the Murli from time to time. But don't ever recall a teacher baseing a class on it, or ...

But my first questions would be to examine Hindu sexuality, the cultural norm from which the BK and their ruling sisters expand. I have always wondered how in such an overpopulated yet non-private culture all the sex takes place to overpopulate it On more than one occasion whilst chatting with BKs ...
