focus on soul consciousness

Hi. Regarding "self control", the way I see it it shouldn't mean repression of any kind of attraction when we socialize. BKs end up becoming very fearful, tense and not natural, they loose spontaneity and it is not pleasant to be around such people! Even though I have no sympathy for the BKWSO, I am...

would be too good to be true!

Fair enough. Sounds wise and sensible. This attitude and approach attracted many of us to the BKWSO because we found it very clean, free from the usual dreaded hidden agendas of greedy gurus, churches, etc. God must be just towards is children and Prajapita, the old soul, Father of humanity must be ...

Re: Support the bring back Smilies Campaign

Support: in the sense that, in absence of body language, eye contact, tone of voice etc ... smilies can do the trick and explain better than words what we mean and help us avoid understandings. This is most important especially for posters whose mother tongue is not English and may therefore encount...

organisation?????????

Hi. Rather than "organization", I would call it a dis-organisation. Sometimes it's due to fatalism or being over busy in distributing benefit here and there. Trains and planes are missed, programs are cancelled or changed. It's true that sometime miracles happen and the impossible becomes possible, ...

chained and tortured, in fact

I don't know if the topic of veganism has been discussed elsewhere on the Forum. I personally think, and witnessed, that milk production involves a great torture of both cows and calves; mothers kept all their lives in stables, fed artificially and filled with medicines and hormones etc, chained in ...

Re: Diane Tillman/BKWSU and Living Values Education

Jah protect us!! More interesting posts about how the BKWSO markets itself, and drawing our attention on which partners and clients they choose to have. Maybe I misunderstood it all. The BKs are bound to purify everybody and that's why they mingle with questionable folks? It takes time and mental ef...

Re: ex BKs start a new life, family and announcements

Yes, good luck. And at least if they ever start to fight and throw saucers and tv sets at each other, they will not hide it behind closed doors and fake angelic smiles as sisters-in-charge do in most centers.

Love

Sorry I wasn't able to say good bye and see you all more soon.

a consumer's point of view

In case this is not the appropriate topic to post, please admin feel free to move this elsewhere (reasons for leaving Gyan, or other ...). The BKWSO sells or gives sometimes away partly for free, a product. In the lokik world, companies and distributors, try their best to keep their customers and ga...

touching and catching

it was before my first contact with the BK and was part of the process of opening back up to the divine presence in my life. In fact, this led me later on to question the BK teaching about God not being omnipresent. Although things have moved on for me over the last few years, I would still acknowl...

Baba rescues us, sometimes!

What an ugly story!! Mind that, when it happened, they did not want to talk much about it. The jewelry part is quite a mystery, how can you quantify an excess in showing off of wealth, really! In a poor country, even a watch, a camera and some money people certainly travel with, can inspire robbers....

I don't censor you and you don't censor me!

ex-l reminds me of some chasing journalists, that gain supporters and admirers due to the courage the role of being in war zones' frontlines requires. They also attract a lot of hatred and upset reactions from those who have been accused or exposed, who in turn typically retaliate by charging the re...

lock and throw away the key

There seems to be a (comic) disbelief that any possible open discussion or criticism of the Brahma-Kumaris could be valid or that their modus operandi should be independently inspected or questioned ... and remember back to how safe and controlled the BK environment is. "Not thinking" is Dadi Janki...

Hi, the heart says thanks to Arjuna. As I was reading such points I also thought what ex-l said, if this were the teachings and the teacher, I would go for it now!! In the Sakar Murli 25/04/08 Baba says, "if you become pure and viceless you are my followers. If you don't become this, you are not my ...
