Re: And what is the meaning of life?

17 Feb 2009

Could it be that the meaning of life is to discover Life Itself? I was recently playing on a beach with a dog, running and throwing a stick. At one point, I heard myself laugh. I was for a moment the observer of myself, and I was deeply touched by the simplicity, the purity, the absolute joy that I ...

Re: Será que los ex BKs podemos madurar ...

17 Jan 2009

Not sure, Tom, if you're asking me to translate this post into Spanish. If so, I am sorry but my Spanish is not good enough for that. I can just about manage Spanish to English, but the other way round would need a native Spanish speaker. Anyone else out there??

Re: Hullo from Terry

16 Jan 2009

Farewell to Terry. I am sorry if you feel you have to pull out because I think you could offer the readers of this forum some value ... I, too, am sorry to see Terry go. I followed his posts from start to finish and found them all rich with truth, insight, erudition, humor, and honesty. I would have...

Re: Sister Sudesh

13 Jan 2009

Thank you, John Morgan, for a nostalgic snapshot of Sudesh Didi. My experiences of her were very much like yours. She seemed only ever to see the good in all, and overflowed with love and joy at all times. When criticized or shown disrespect, I remember her striving to adapt her own behavior and con...

Re: Hullo from Terry

This is, of course, a million miles from where the BKWSU are at and complete and utter heresy. Good. Keep it up! I am just not sure that it is such heresy. My experience today as regards God, Truth, Life, and Shiva, are pretty much in alignment with Terry. I discover myself externalizing and projec...

Re: Brahma Kumaris Raise Issue of Abuse with BKWSU Leadership

05 Jan 2009

I would add a fourth item to Terry's list of options above: 4. God is behind it all and chose the RIGHT instruments. If we look at the BKs as a spiritual group rather than an institution, then all is as it should be. As Terry says, and also from 10 years away from the BKs, I would say it was ever th...

Re: Hullo from Terry

Just an anecdote about the prediction of Destruction in 1976. I moved in circles of BKs from Leicester who had been in Gyan since well before 1976. They took the prediction very seriously. Many cashed in their insurance policies, and so on, in preparation. Ten, fifteen and twenty years later, they t...

The Spiritual Bypass

01 Jan 2009

The Spiritual Bypass. I don't know how widely this term is used beyond California, so forgive me if I am stating the obvious. Psychospiritual and therapeutic practitioners here use it to describe the phenomenon amongst some New Age and spiritual followers - once an experience of peace or bliss has ...

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

01 Jan 2009

Yogi 108 Misunderstandings arising from the subjectivity of the reader and the inadequacy of words maybe? We read into things what we want to hear, and respond with what we need to express. So no hard feelings on either side I hope! Joel I love your two examples above - knowing all we need to know ...

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

30 Dec 2008

Yogi 108, I am not sure I understand your remarks. If you read my post as another exercise in BK bashing, then you missed the meaning in the last line - that I would not change any of my BK experiences. They were, and are, very precious to me. You seem to question why I am sharing what you perceive ...

Re: Neville Hodgkinson

29 Dec 2008

A very enjoyable read. I remember the house, the BMX bike, and the basement. I worked with Neville and Liz on a number of occasions, and it was really nice to read this article and be reminded of those days. I hope the family are all still doing as well.

Re: Forty years of psychic influences from Adi Dev

24 Dec 2008

ex-l, I'd like to respond to this with a question. It is a genuine question, and not a challenge to your ideas, but first I need to tell you a story that happened in about 1989. In the center where I was living, the Indian Sister in charge suddenly became extremely fatigued, almost to the point of c...

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

24 Dec 2008

After Raj Yoga, can there be ANY faith? This is a great question and a very pertinent one. I was very interested to read the original classic post. Personally, I have never had any psychic sensitivity, so I cannot respond in that language, but I relate deeply to the "saddest response" of b...

Re: New Openings Triggered by ... Gangaji

20 Dec 2008

I still feel today, 25 years later (can it really be so long!), that it was the hand of God that guided me to the BKs. Gyan appeared in my life as if by magic in answer to a desperate prayer. My prayer was to know the truth. The version of "the truth" that Gyan offered was exactly what my ...
