Re: Hello from daughter of BK

Hi John and Global, My exams went really well, thanks, I got a first and am graduating in a couple of weeks :D Do you find yourself at times torn between BK knowledge and lokik life have you been able to simply cut the ties? especially with your Dad still being involved? Not at all. As I said earlie...

Re: Hello from daughter of BK

Just to make things clear - my Father may have upset me over the food issue, and caused other problems with other people in his early BK years which I am not and was not fully aware of - but now he has an excellent balance between BK and family life. mbbhat, I am afraid your marriage example really ...

Re: Hello from daughter of BK

Personal relations are needed to satisfy what you do not get by official relationship. You actually do not need personal relationship to live in this world. It is needed to satisfy emotions. There is benefit (love, co-operation, etc) as well as loss (attachment and bondage). But I want to experienc...

Re: Hello from daughter of BK

ex-l, john, bansy I am in the middle of finals, hence my sense of humour failure, Sorry! Blame the French imperfect subjunctive ... And bansy, I misread your comment - sorry again! I have a tendency to be a wee bit over defensive. # Challenge: Totalist cults tend to indoctrinate their members with i...

Re: Hello from daughter of BK

I am banned excommunicated damned and totally worthless. The BK don't wish to know me and I feel terrible about it. How could my dearest Abba abandon me like this? I cannot go to classes and the phone has been put down on me. Can you imagine my state of incredible (in alphabetical order) anxiety, d...

Re: Hello from daughter of BK

Ack, look - the reason I am not very clear on some things is that my parents did not Ram BK down my throat and allowed me to make my own decisions, so I grew up surrounded by BK stuff but never had any of it methodically explained to me, and I've never taken the course. It's not because my dad's a b...

Re: Hello from daughter of BK

No probs, John :) I should point out though that I am interested in deeper things than Corrie! God just is not one of them, for the moment at least. Also, just wanted to clarify for anyone reading that when I said I wouldn't recommend people went to India to "meet God", I did not mean that I would r...

Re: Hello from daughter of BK

Could you accept that perhaps you still have unresolved emotions in this area and are perhaps just a little in denial about it all? I mean, either it has to be God or it is not ... Probably! Easier just not to think about it, I guess, and I am quite happy that way. I wouldn't recommend anyone went ...

Re: Thank you / No thank you to the BKWSU

A thank you from me. I had a happy, loving childhood in the BK family.

(I think I was lucky because being a child meant I was subjected to very few of the negative aspects of BKWSU I have read about in these forums).

Re: Hello from daughter of BK

I really don't know. The rational part of me doesn't believe or want to believe in God at all, especially as I feel religion in general has caused so many problems (though that mainly comes from human beings' interpretation of "God", if there is indeed a god, I suppose). But then that leaves me at a...

Re: Hello from daughter of BK

Do you in any way feel to there is much lost in your relationships with your parents ? No, I don't think so - we've always had good times together. If my dad hadn't loosened up then it might have been harder as my sister and I got older, but he's quite happy now to take part in more lokic activitie...

Re: Hello from daughter of BK

On the anti-party - I think my dad actually said something along the lines of 'the anti-party's always been around', I asked what he meant and he mentioned disputes over the BK wikipedia article and the Brother's letter - I am not sure that he was saying that these represent the anti-party, perhaps ...
