The most conTroversial idea in BkWSU theology is one of death and rebirth. The old will pass away, and make away for the new, the very baptism of the Earth itself is no simple walk to the church, or whatever. Its written natural calamities are our friends, the time is at end. Though the BK message has more style than the usual at of the world doom prophecy, it is also Hindu thought, or a reinterptretation of Hindu thought.

I admit times are getting bad, children appear further from what children were. And people seek so hard to see weakness in others.

Is one always a BK, does one ever become XBK! One can be a BK, and still be independent of the BKWSU as it is also called Raja Yoga, or union with God, there is no inner glue: IT IS AN OUTER REFLECTION THAT GLUES ONE WITH God.

Hi, 'XBK"...I agree 100%, a few years ago, I called the BK center for info on the public program, and the sister asked: who are you? I said: I used to be a BK ! she said: once you are a BK you will always be a BK !! but last week I called for info again and the experience was the opposite, she would not give me any info 'cause she didn't know me...(my name), oh well, I can only believe that through RY you connect with God...if you choose to go to the 'church' or the center....it is up to you !!

Mr. Green,

I agree with you on this:
Mr. Green,

Time magazine's cover posts a warning to all that live on planet Earth:
Quote:
Global Warming: Be Worried. Be Very Worried


Deforestation is happening at an astounding rate, pollution continues in some countries unabated (including mine) and the will to do some thing is lacking in many inhabitants of this planet. The US is not a partner in the Kyoto Protocol thanks to President Bush. Mad

Link to article on About.com:

Quote:
US Refuses to Sign Pact to Stem Global Warming

The Kyoto Protocol is the first international agreement to fight global warming. It was signed by 141 nations, including all European and all other developed industrial nations except the US and Australia.
The pact went into effect on February 16, 2005, and expires in 2012. The Kyoto Protocol has been celebrated by its backers as a lifeline to save our planet from disastrous human-caused effects of a warming global climate.



In my area the EDIS system sent out a message earlier in the month: satellites have noted a rotation, upon further warning seek shelter in your seller or reinforced room. Confused

I couldnít for the life of me figure out what that was until I went to the website and found it is a TORNADO in the making. Shocked We donít have a seller and I donít know anything about what to do in the event of a ROTATION! I am trained as a NERT volunteer and I must say that threw me for a loop. Our little planet is sending us a message to heed before it is too late.

So, I am in total agreement with you concentrating collectively on Global Warming.

Regards,

Tete

The computer revolution has improved so much. DVD technology, one can have a similar to cinema experience in the privacy of one's home. Medical research is always improving, or if that is not your cup of tea, even herbal medicine is finding new energy. We can access so much through the internet, the Library is at our fingertips. But it depends on how unlimited u are, which was one of the BK ideas I was interested in, the unlimited is there for the unlimited, but people are becoming more limited.

Last note,

Some BKs seemed so passionate, attending murli after murli, but they were like XBK.
