Hmmn, more food for the barracudas? If someone wishes to type out the lot, please post. I made some notes here.
Its targeted as "overseas team" and not Indian and so I wonder what service India gets? (... second class or cattle truck, madam?
Gayatri Naraine, the Brahma Kumaris’ representative to the United Nations, Oxford Leadership Academy alumni Ken O'Donnell and Judy Rodgers, the Case Western Reserve University - The Appreciative Inquiry Commons - Visions of a Better World Foundation - Images and Voices of Hope - Center for Business as an Agent of World Benefit - Weatherhead School of Management - Communication Architecture Group - and sometimes BKUN Representative (... file under "overachiever"
They mention the "Divine Constitution and other foundation documents
". We have not see any of those yet.
center-in-charges are "encouraged" to limit Regular students input to contribute to only three of the seven topics mention at the beginning of this topic
, the rest being done behind closed doors. We seem to be missing one, there are only 6 topics mentioned above. But those three are;
- a) Upholding our spiritual principles (Topic One)
b) Caring for our (the BK) family (Topic Two)
c) Providing mechanism for Reconciliation (Topic Four)
I understand the last one to mean lessen the changes of negative impact through public disclosures such as this, is that fair to say?
BKWSU wrote:NOTE: NO PERMANENT CHANGES CAN BE MADE UNTIL YOU HAVE THE SUPPORT AND CONSENT OF YOUR REGIONAL COORDINATOR AND YOUR NATIONAL COORDINATOR.
On Page 5 they want to make sure conversation stays on constructive note ... not problems of the past. It is kind of hard to discuss issues without discussing issues, is not it? Does that mean any past "crimes" or indiscretions are just going to be waived?
page 19 "Can and should we say more about our core understanding regarding how the drama is drawing to a close, and God's act of re-creation?
So the Brahma-kumaris question whether to drop the bomb on non-BKs re "Destruction". Remember just a few months ago where Global Media Chief Karuna Shetty denied Destruction to the reporter from Pravda saying that it had been removed out of the teachings?
, I mentioned before.

Interesting to watch the "value programming" and what was happening in the 80s
and where the influences into the BKWSU are coming from and ask how much further forward we are now? This guy makes me smile. He may not be god or a BK Brahmin but he is not wrong either.
