Re: Reflections on Childhood Sexual Abuse

07 Mar 2009

Much harm is done to the forum's positive and friendly energy lately by leela ... I admit I was very taken aback by the harsh tones of Tom's post. It caused me to reflect and ask myself if I have misjudged the scope and purpose of the forum and harmed it as suggested. On further reflection, I don't...

Re: Reflections on Childhood Sexual Abuse

What I want to draw attention to here is the double standards at play; when something unfortunately happens to someone else, "its their karma". When "karma" comes back to the Brahma Kumaris, it is put aside, denied, the 'messenger' accused and so on ... its anything but their ka...

Re: Self Discovery

05 Mar 2009

Hello Cypress, Your perspective on the journey to self-discovery resonates very well with me, and it is from this perspective that I am interested in reflecting on my time as a BK, a time that seems to sit squarely at the other end of the spectrum - seeking spiritual wisdom rather than self-discover...

Going to the Grand Canyon next month, to be awed by the desert, spend time alone, have an adventure. (Going down the pub for my favorite beer sounds good too, but I'd have to travel even further for that).

Re: Reflections on Childhood Sexual Abuse

If it is not asking too much Leela, are you able to (less generally and more particularly) describe how Gyan and Raja Yoga worked for you, and then what led you to move on? Is it a bandage on a wound, or a crutch that supports, while other healing takes place autonomously, unconsciously, or is ther...

Re: Reflections on Childhood Sexual Abuse

03 Mar 2009

First let me thank you all for interesting and stimulating replies. There a number of points that I want to follow up on, but I will have to do so bit by bit due to time constraints right now. You have articulated clearly something I have often felt reading these pages without fully comprehending th...

Reflections on Childhood Abuse Prior to Becoming a BK

28 Feb 2009

I think it was Joel who wrote somewhere that he comes here to discover himself. I like that. Reading around on here recently, I had an experience of this self-discovery. The first part of the epiphany is about the role of the BKs in my life and my own recovery from childhood sexual abuse, which I wi...

Re: Feeling better

25 Feb 2009

Hello enlightened, I am happy to hear you had a better day. I was not a child in Gyan, and I know there are some important differences for those who were. But I do relate to many aspects of your recovery journey that you describe. I was deeply "hypnotised" by the whole thing and it was a s...

Re: And what is the meaning of life?

23 Feb 2009

This Moment is God Have you tried to let go? You cannot. No-one has ever succeeded in letting go. Letting go is not for you. Letting go is the end of someone trying to let go; so do not try to let go. It will strengthen the whole game. Don't try to not think; it will strengthen the thinking. Don't ...

Re: Going to Madhuban?

22 Feb 2009

I made ten trips to Madhuban in total. Often I was traveling alone and slightly off-season. I always only had good, smooth, comfortable travel experiences. BKs in London and Madhuban, and every waystation in between, always did their utmost to take care of every detail - tickets, food, taxis, greete...

Wow - this is a hot topic. I shall have to come back later to read it all. Meanwhile, I want to reply to Terry from the previous page: Terry: "Truth" is what serves the ego at that time. Leela : Ego is the function that keeps us in opposition to what is. Terry" .."a definition of...

Re: How did we fool ourselves into believing the Brahma Kumaris?

17 Feb 2009

This is a very interesting quote from Terry: Truth is what serves the ego at that time. And because it served us (past tense) we are loathe to let go. There was a time when I would have agreed with this statement. I was happy to find teachings that confirmed me in my sense of myself as a separate be...
