Re: Raja Yoga (What is it?)

I suppose the true answer to this question is "it all depends on the person involved in it". If beauty is in the eye of the beholder, then so too is ugliness. What is food for one, would choke another. What a beauty competition to a winning girls parents is, may not carry the same conviction for a r...

Re: Good quotes

Yogi Bhajan wrote:The Highest achievement in human consciousness is the extent to which you believe in your own being. It is not the life you live, but the courage that you bring to it.

Re: As in the Beginning, so in the End

Will they come around to accept again that Bap-Dada is Lekhraj Kirpalani speaking from a high state of consciousness, call it Brahm realisation if you will rather than channelling any other spiritual entity? I've read this a few times but not understanding it correctly so must ask you (ex-l) to ple...

Re: Dealing with Loss of a Lokik Family Member

Just in case my post in this thread above sounded a little 'off' - I do wish to also share that the BK 'family' at the time supported me 100% during my mother's death and stood with me all the way. I remember one of them commenting on me "smiling" all the way through her funeral. It's a life, eh?

Re: Why knowledge sits just in pure intellect?

Using statements or comments like The Knowledge adds a bit to the melodrama. The capitalisation used infer certain processes. It infers thats there's an ultimate achievement thats reachable or unreachable depending on the efforts made. And why does knowledge, spiritual or otherwise have anything to ...

Re: Dealing with Loss of a Lokik Family Member

I experienced the loss of my mother whilst I was in Gyan but I also know today that my own spiritual power and 'ability' at the time aided her passing (she was very ill) and I am thankful for this experience. However, it's a long story. What remains is a strong sense of self, of my own abilities and...

God Vs Science

God Vs Science - A true story by one of our most brilliant scientists. 'Let me explain the problem science has with religion.' The atheist professor of philosophy pauses before his class and then asks one of his new students to stand. 'You're a Christian, aren't you, son?' 'Yes sir,' the student say...

Re: Take out the Junk

IMO, one of the reasons that the Murli is not being openly offered is BECAUSE it has been edited and (in parts) re-written. They probably have created this 'rule' for their own protection. For it to become available to 'outsiders' would leave the BKWSU teachings open to 'abuse' and 'question' which ...

Re: Why knowledge sits just in pure intellect?

You see, this is exactly what the problem is, you define "knowledge" as only that which the BKWSU and allied/similar teach or theorise about. And your thread title suggests that it is only this kind of "knowledge" that will sit in a 'pure' intellect. There is something seriously egoistic about this ...

Re: BK concept of "Destruction"

IMO, people will gradually leave behind the old world and the 'Golden Age' won't just begin tomorrow as many people seem to think. Its a bit like living between two dimensions and then slowy adapting to the higher dimension over time and one day one realises that one has left the old dimension far b...

Re: Interesting stories and information

Australia is in the grip of a "man drought" where women increasingly outnumber men and a good bachelor is hard to find, according to new research from a leading demographer. From its founding as a British penal colony more than 200 years ago, Australia has traditionally suffered from a gender imbal...
