Carl Jung on Secret Societies and the members who fail to differentiate themselves [and why some people cannot leave the BKs] .

for the BKs, the worldly or materialistic scale of BKism as proof of its "spirituality", is in itself a kind of schizophrenia, eg ... "We're spiritual because we're so successful materialistically". This is also true of many sub-cults of other major religions. Christianity has c...

Re: Newcomer/Exiting BK/Questioning BK

12 May 2018

That's a good point GuptaRati, I too was 19 when I became a BK. Most Western BKs I knew joined in those late teen and early adult years. I had consciously rejected my parents devout Christianity when I was about 12 or 14, and was exploring the many changes and ideas around me at the time, locally an...

Hi BKchild, I hope the person ex-l mentions is able to contact you, if it is who I think it is. they will be very helpful for you. All I’d like to say at this stage is that it is not uncommon for children of parents of any faith to reach a crisis point when they grow up and realise they do not see t...

Re: The BKs are finished

11 May 2018

Guptarati, I was talking about BKs specifically. We know what BKs meditate on and the breadth of intellectual and mental stimulation, or lack of, and of their ‘interests’, especially those completely inside that system. My last paragraph is a logical extension of the others and it refers to BKs. The...

I suppose that means she is losing her mind like Prakashmani did? It is well known that those who continue to challenge themselves with new learning, puzzles, activities, and so on are more likely to hold off dementia and other age-related deteriorations of the brain. It's corollary, in that those ...

Strip away the religious baggage and you have an anthropological phenomenon.

It seems its Jordan Peterson's day in the sun. I hadn’t heard of him until recently either. I have watched a few videos in the last few months. I must say, I find my reaction to his talks vary a lot. He sounds very much like an academic who is very good at pulling a talk together and when he sticks ...

Guptarati, what you say may be true, however, even with the best doctors and being the most yogi of yogis, we all will meet our fate. I’d agree that the whole paradigm of "I am immortal ” or ” Trust in god and don’t worry about tying up your camel" can lead to a certain abuse of one’s phys...

Re: Quakers considering dropping "God" from their meetings

Was that a subjective projection and personal qualifier too? If we say ”rock” or "tree” everyone with normal faculties knows what we are talking about, and they’d all describe it in similar ways, regardless of which religion, culture, time in history they existed. God and spirit are quite diff...

Re: Quakers considering dropping "God" from their meetings

God and spirit are but words and sub-labels too. They mean nothing without subjective projections and personal qualifiers. You can’t say that about a rock. OK, you can, but not within the realm of common human experience. Of the thousands of gods that existed in human history - all very real to thei...

Nice work Mattheus. You say, "I try to figure out why my meditations in these concept of the BK are that strong”. We’ve all thougth about this as we try to unravel how it was we got so embedded inside this cult. For most of us, we were held here by the glue of the strong meditation experience. ...

I can experience the soul in its blissful radiation This sentence has subject in relationship to object. Subject - ” I " Who is it that experiences the soul? Can the eye see itself? Can a tooth bite itself? Object - ”soul" What is it exactly that’s being experienced? A word ‘imagined', a ...
