Re: The Irony

07 Jun 2020

The feeling from the BK tactic discussed and the eating together thing seems to be to appeal to superiority. Hey! We real BKs just relax, man. We have learnt how to get "people to strictly conform to certain types of behaviour, abandon their past friends and family, ask for mandatory donations,...

Re: After Raj Yoga, Can There be ANY Faith?

04 Jun 2020

Anyone involved in BKs for any length of time has become conditioned to associate certain actions, postures, words, feelings with the BK paradigm. Humans are no different to Pavlov’s dog, we become conditioned to respond. It is unsurprising that adopting a meditation position will bring up BK associ...

Re: Buy the Products: BKs own line of spiritual consumer goo

02 Jun 2020

Real Estate agents are notorious for trying any and every angle to make a sale, so if someone has decided to target BKs who might be interested to buy or rent property in India that is just them doing what is Real Estate business. Why should the official BK organisation tell people where they should...

Even though they present a more polished and acceptable look to the public with their public merchandise, they don't realise how much disservice they do with their shoddy in-house merchandise, the cheap rubbish they sell to the converted, the BK fanboys and girls for whom every utterance and product...

I watched that a few years ago, it was screened here on television. An excellent social experiment and observation.

Re: Why the Brahma Kumaris Lost a VIP Follower

Kevin Rowland’s story is a good one, reflects what I think a lot of people experience in probably less dramatic ways when they encounter the BKs. Kevin Rowland - I felt guilty, and thought low of a woman for letting me have sex with her. Women were either saints or prostitutes. That sounds exactly l...

Re: Brahma Kumaris at Abu Rd Shutdown due to Covid-19

Arcane, Sounds like your dad is resentful of being bound in family life. The BKs create a multi-tier system of worth. Although on one hand they say any BK can rise to be one of the top "Beads of the rosary of victory” (Vijayanti mala?) what they practice is a distinct caste system based on: whe...

... that if he remained submissive to them, all his wealth would end up supporting their lifestyles ... when, with a little razzle dazzle, he could get others to support him ! I think what I don't get is, if he saw through it, how he did not see right through it, or reject it all? Is some other ins...

He obviously thinks he offers a better product otherwise why would he be doing it, and why not profit (!) from it personally rather than pay "royalties” :D ? There is also a disproportionate number of Roman Catholics amongst Western BKs in my experience. They tend to BK in a very RC way. !! Wha...

Re: ex-BK Robert Shubow of Sat Yoga Ashram resurfaces

A bit of lateral context. There was an expansion of numbers of BKs from San Francisco in the 1980s, including Robert and Peggy Shubow. Among their numbers was Dr Harold Streitfeld. Before joining BKs, around the time of his retirement, he was one of the group of psychotherapists who pioneered a lot ...

ex-l wrote:I don't know when he left BKism, or when his "10 years" were up

If 10 years, then he was BK between approximately 1980 and 1990.

Oh Dear. Robert Shubow. He used to be such a nice boy. Comparing the list of teachers he wishes to acknowledge to what he teaches and how he lives reminds me of the saying: Modern Education is mostly the art of notes passing from teacher to student and back again without entering the mind of either ...

Re: Humans search for God bring families misery instead of b

14 May 2020

So, to end by referring to your other good idea[Arcane], "If a God was to come to Earth, would he exaggerate, falsify, denying and so on?" If your answer to that is, as I hope it would be, "no, not all", then the next question arises, "so what is the nature of this spirit o...

A very interesting post Arcane. ex-I, pink panther, guptarati6666, oldbk and all, really wonderful and wise having transcended the path. You people are doing really great, seriously. I admire that. I appreciate you all!! Thanks, it's nice to know someone is reading, appreciating and considering. Too...

Re: Humans search for God bring families misery instead of b

God is whatever anyone thinks God is. Theists use that these days to be ecumenical, between denominations or across religions. Everyone has a ”personal relationship”. Every opinion is equally true. Mainly expounded to unite theists in the face of atheism or agnosticism - " because we all belie...
