Re: Psychological problems after wife joins Brahma Kumaris

19 Feb 2013

Today's meet with Dr.... She said forget about the relationship with her. First priority is to bring her back into real world.

Re: Psychological problems after wife joins Brahma Kumaris

Manojag , your last few posts confirm to me what I saw as Ansula's modus operandi and reasons for giving such personal attention. You can be sure that whenever she succeeds in getting large donations she rises in the esteem of her BK superiors and is more likely to get promotion and other formal ac...

Re: Sunk cost bias, effort justification & advance fee fraud

17 Feb 2013

Good summary! I think I may have said it before myself here but in many more words with less clarity. You have to admit - these jargon terms can be useful! Re: sunk-cost-bias A very wealthy famous businessman was once asked in an interview what his secret was over many years and many projects, with ...

I recall a personal experience, where pink panther recommendations for nice talk and logical discussions were attempted with a BK enculted victim, and I could literally feel my words bouncing back to me ..!! Umm ... I actually said discussions about Gyan were to be avoided - "logical" or ...

Re: Psychological problems after wife joins Brahma Kumaris

16 Feb 2013

It is possible that this woman's encounter with the BKs (and likely some other factors) has triggered some latent psycho or neurological condition that may have emerged later anyway, in other manifestations. It is fortunate Manojag that you have some resources to afford professional help - which, to...

Re: Disassociating general meditation practice from BK metho

15 Feb 2013

I will answer more fully later. For now, in brief as I have other things needing my time, just to say: your points are valid. However, I was not saying "all" people nor was I saying "all" techniques, "every" meditation experience ever had by anyone, and so on. Just for ...

Disassociating general meditation practice from BK method

15 Feb 2013

Related to ' Watch your language! Why not to use BK language ' and further illustrating this (maybe more specifically than "verbal" language). Many people on this forum, even those declared ex-BK, seem unable (or find it difficult) to disassociate meditation practice in general from the me...

For those who did not quite understand why that footage is used with that song in the video: We Beatle tragics know that John Lennon wrote "Sexy Sadie" specifically about Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, i.e. Sexy Sadie IS the maharishi. After he became disillusioned with him, he realised how the Ma...

Dear manojag22. This is a sad event. I offer you my encouragement in maintaining your compassion for your wife and supporting her through this difficult time. I agree with the main points offered by ex-l in the first reply above. Many years ago when I was a young follower, I got to know Ansula in Vi...

Watch your language! Why not to use BK language

14 Feb 2013

I place this new topic under the "Recovery and Abuse" very purposefully. I think you will understand why as you read, because the effect on a person who spends any length of time within the BKs is more insidious than we often realise. In his answer to Manoj in the topic Psychological probl...
