Well, I never got so far into the organisation as to call myself a card-carrying member :P. Although it was clear that the SS had high hopes for my 'cultivation' :lol: as I was introduced to others as "our new Sister" at local centre ... however this did ring a few alarm bells at the time. I got tha...

The God Delusion

Regarding the Richard Dawkins program, "The root of all evil", shown last night on ABC TV here in Australia. The Sydney Morning Herald: The root of all evil? May 21, 2007 He has denounced God as an ethnic cleanser. He has described faith as the biggest obstacle to peace in the 21st century. Little w...

Years ago in the Murlis it used to say don't just take this in blind faith, work it through churn it ... well I did, and unfortunately for me and many others it doesn't add up to anything other than someones ideas mixed with a re-writting of aspects of the Hindu faith. Hehe, I was told just that .....

Yes the closest I've ever come to violence was when a BK I had known for years said straight to my face, after I had returned having been with my Brother who had been sectioned again, "do you think he has two souls?". It really is ignorance as ex-l says ... based on superstition ... man, I wanted t...

Well of course! With the pure magic of Gyan anything is possible. But is must be through the approved official version BK Raja Yoga (tm) ONLY ;) This is not chanting or mantra reciting, the physician said. It's not based on scriptures. It's not a cult. It's not biofeedback. It's deeper than that. Th...

Re: BKWSU Banishment

I had not considered that element. I was only thinking of the heretics. Interesting ... if you are impervious to the hypnotism and ritual (social conditions), they have to exclude you as you highlight the impotence of their god (Brahma) over your soul? It is "not in your fortune" ... you're obvious...

How primitive and tribal is the BKWSU policy of BANISHMENT? Does that not go right back to the most basic of human instincts and is it not the crude element of control? Set individuals up to beelive that "The Kripalani Klan" is the only path to salvation. Have the threat of ex-commnication and bani...

I also find the whole concept of an eternal "soul" pretty suspect too. Seems like wishful thinking on the human animal's part ... the need to be a part of something cosmically greater ... the need to believe you are a wonderful, perfect & separate "soul" which will inhabit a wonderful, perfect "afte...

Memes (we finally get back to them!), which manifest as cults and related social movements, have "discovered" the brain's reward system as well. Successful cult memes induce intense social interaction behaviour between cult members. This trips the attention detectors. Tripping the detectors causes ...

I must admit I have never believed in any kind of "god" at any time in my life ... not the C of E version which I grew up with nor the BK's deity. (For which I am extremely grateful lol) Last night on ABC TV there was a 'religious' program discussing belief/non-belief and they mentioned the concept ...

it may have been the same episode my partner told me about. He was on retreat at the time this happened. This would have been 3 to 5 years ago. Yes, from memory the time frame fits, di. The Brother was 'escorted' away by Charlie Hogg. My partner started to follow them down the hall to see if he cou...

Brahma may have had an equality of vision towards anyone he met. The same cannot be said to be true of BK teachers, who would definitely not describe their work as therapy. Their search for 'original family members' is a search for people with the potential to share in a radical fanatical world vie...
