Is it just that they go around with secrets and expect the male populous to practise blind faith? Would it not be more honest to explain in detail during or after the course has been completed?
It is very insulting to expect to control the thoughts, words and actions of others without full explanation of all aspects and reasons why, even if it means admitting that you may not be as big strong and powerful as you would otherwise wish? This is God's business we are dealing with, not some creche where you lie to kids to get them to do what you want. It is insulting, OK? Be honest with souls, and they will return that respect with honesty and not confusion, which leads to anger.
Someone asked in another thread if I thought the sisters like Jayanti are man-haters ... I do think so and they are led by DJ's example.
When Bhog is offered in london, it is 99% sisters who get asked for this, and they all insist on wearing their hair loose because Dadi does :? Sometimes Dadi will call 2 or 3 more up there so you'll have 5 or 6 of 'em up there ... no men allowed.
Even some of the sisters without rank object to this and attempts have been made to rectify it by both men and women, but I bet nought has come of it.
Also Maureen let slip once to me that 'brothers' aren't really encouraged to come and work in the office!!!!!!!!! I was allowed but to get something as worthy as my own email address wasn't easy.
i do think that sisters are generaly much better at supporting each other than brothers are. However, there is now something called Men in Spirituality - organised by the BKs - open to the public - where men support each other's spiritual efforts and this may well be more successful than anything the sisters have organised for the public sisterhood.
