Re: Help Needed for my Brother

14 Feb 2010

30 yrs old, 8 years with the institution. Still fully in love with the philosophy and following the main guidelines (but not going regularly). But I think, both myself and the majority (if not all) members, need a revision in the way things are done. For example, embracing our own weaknesses or neg...

Re: Help Needed for my Brother

I am interested to know what happened to provoke such a strong reaction from him towards the organization ... but I think the time is wrong to ask right now. It also sounds like he will just take some time to heal and mend. His attitude will change ... ... ... etc. A post I agree with. In my view, ...

Re: SwordofJustice ... what is 'BK Raja Yoga'?

14 Feb 2010

This has been an interesting thread to read. I really appreciate some of the posts on here. Certainly, coming to this forum has given me food for thought. My final thought for this thread is that much is made of BK teaching changing. It is basically put that these changes mean it is false and that B...

And those visits are good, Ex-I. They're usually sincere and nice. We want BKs to be connected in the heart space, yeah? It's a wonderful space, that one.

Cheers,

I am happy to post on how I get on mixing with BKs and following the path again. To be honest, I've only encountered one BK who is a bit fundamentalist so far. The rest have been quite easy going and lovely. They're all different, of course. My thinking on reform is mainly to maintain compassion in ...

@Starchild the Hippy With all that I've written I still find myself agreeing with what you've written, Starchild. I can see that what you criticise about BKs does happen. I personally feel it's a shame. I suppose when I come down to it, I somehow believe that the genuine meditation experiences that ...

@Starchild I want to answer your post most of all. Lovely online nickname, by the way. Maybe I am just a hippy at heart. :-) LOL Your points re. the Soul The last point about forgiving murderers, etc first. Naive? Yeah, I'll always be an idealist. It's harder in the moment. You don't know me, of cou...

What am I supposed to do if someone insults me ... brahmakumaris.info is not as easy as going to your auntie's house. Just get to the point and we will get on just fine. At present, I feel that you are only talking about the external stuff, the fluff, the PR and avoiding talking about the core issu...

If you go to the Library, here , you can download the original Tree and Cycle posters and paintings. There are also books from the 30s and 40s. They are discussed in detail in the History forum . It is clear that the top BK all sat down and conspired to make up various stories ... and got them all ...

We are concerned with the lives of the people who are misguided initially, and finally felt cheated. I agree with whatever description you have given about The Knowledge. I, myself, was explaining it to others. But it is only theoretical. For the initial years of Gyan, it seems amazing. One can exp...

I missed some things in quickly skimming the thread. I haven't read all your posts on the forum. No, I did not intend to inflame you at all. Sword, That is just all the "blah blah blah" sales pitch ... please get to the point. 5,000 Years ... identical repition ... Destruction of 6 Billion...

No body is lying, no body is telling the truth either. Every one is speaking as per his conscious, the level of Gyan, he has grasped, the subtleness, he has gained, the power, he has received from the supreme. So relying on human talks take us to various doubts and confusions.. Thats why the primar...

I always wonder why people need some religion or belief system to get their act together. If you need it fine! But there is where it all goes wrong and people like cult leaders take advantage of it ... Throughout history all religions have been fighting, killing children and flying into skyscrapers...

Hi Omns, So, aspects of the teachings never sat well with you, huh? Well, that's OK. It's very healthy for you to exercise your intellect and also your decision making capability as an adult. If the path is not working for you, then it's time to review what you're doing with your life. I am glad to ...

Re: Brahman, Paramatman, Atman

10 Jan 2010

There is too much emphasis on Destruction. This can cause problems in one's life as a spiritual person on a spiritual life journey. - The first mistake in the above example with Suraj Bhai is to treat his churnings and thoughts as some kind of "gospel". And why is he talking about all that...
