Re: Brahma Kumaris Fight Follower for Luxury Apartment

02 Dec 2017

I suppose, sentimentality of "the good old times" is an idea that captures many people but what does it mean, from someone who was not even there to experience it and only has heard third hand stories. A vague, false, unaccountable promise that, when it does not happen (again) will be swep...

Re: Brahma Kumaris Fight Follower for Luxury Apartment

Sr. Santosh ... from Russia ... apparently speaks of the "old time" and how it was and is now re-appearing with time. And, rationally, what does that even mean? They are going to go back to believing Lekhraj Kirpalani is god like they did prior to 1956? Does she mean the myth of the "...

Re: What is a Cult?

29 Nov 2017

May just put it on in a big box for just now. Perhaps I can find some cult awareness group that would store copies of it? I think for different people there were different hooks. For most it was the child/dependency stuff but for others, the more psychopathic, it was the appeal of power and conmtrol...

Re: Spiritual growth & relationship with Baba/God after BK

29 Nov 2017

Yes, I think it is very much like fighting an addiction. Addictions also have socio-emotional roots and so while you address those, you need to "go sober" and stop the pushers and enablers (other addicted people) from dragging you back in. Of course, you keep maturing and developing after ...

Re: What is a Cult?

28 Nov 2017

Yes, I am not suggesting right now that I can explain it entirely but I think it is somewhere over in the "infantilisation" department, next door to the "hypnosis" department. A part of us is still like a child and it/they play on it, encouraging an infantile state, they play the...

Re: Spiritual growth & relationship with Baba/God after BK

28 Nov 2017

You are not alone. I've been out decades and every now and again I get "mugged" by a vivid recollection of what an idiot I was and how I was allowed or even encouraged to behave like an idiot. I think it's a process that continues as long as you actually grow, age or progress and can see t...

Re: Experiences of those surrendered, living at the center?

Wouldn't it be wonderful for that money/monies to be supplied to perhaps help those needing it in illness ... just a thought ... Or for the money to be used to truly protect, liberate and empower young women and girls in India rather than sustain the fat, physical and metaphorical around Baba's Pri...

One is quite the opportunist here in the USA and does quite well financially ... does not let others know how she is "supplied" with money. I know this one's donor ... How does that work? She takes the donations to the organization and keeps them for herself? Or does the sponsor specifica...

Divorcing parent to lose children if turned against partners

17 Nov 2017

Changes in the law that could affect the BK in the UK. Hopefully other countries will adopt such a position. Divorcing parents could lose children if they try to turn them against partner Measures being trialled to prevent ‘parental alienation’ feature penalties including permanent loss of contact w...

Re: Experiences of those surrendered, living at the center?

If anyone is considering starting legal action to get what they have given to the Brahma Kumaris back, or to be compensated for the loss and damage they have caused, then check with any insurance policy you might have, eg household insurance policies often have sections for covering legal expenses. ...

Do you know if there is some kind of duty of care mandate? You write "mandate" as a legal relationships beyond the simple responsibility between any two human beings. I don't know which country you are in - and there may be national variations - but, on the basis of various legal constitu...

Re: Brahma Kumaris / Pachamama Partners

Looking at the materialists' world, recent research into the measured use of MDMA and ketamine as treatments for depression is apparently looking positive. With ayahuasca , and here , you have another psychoactive ingredients, DMT (N,N Dimethyl Tryptamine) and harmala alkaloids (MAO inhibitors - the...

Aren't they supposed to be infallibly connected with direct access to God ... except when it matters?

Re: BKs Prove Dadi Janki's Mind Power is Ordinary

What a bizarre comment. Surely if the police caught hold of the thief, they would return the money? And why, if Dadi Gulzar was present, could not she have gone into trance and asked Baba where it went and if to call the cops? Is Vedanti a trance messenger too? Easy come, easy go ... so speak a coup...
