No one get to determine how we think or simplify down to their terms. Nothing is as simple as the BKWSU likes to portray matters. Everyone has their own reason to be here. It could be as many or a few reasons as anyone wanted.
I am new to the site, I think I don't understand 100% what's your aim with the site, could you make it clearer?
To broaden your mind and educate you.
This forum has changed over the years but, at present, it is heading back to where it started ... which is a place for ex-BKs to get together and support each other and non-BKs as best we can.
The "community" and activity started out in another discussion forum for ex-BKs that was apparently threatened by the BKWSO in order to close down. We stepped in and, in the first place, aimed to expand it to become a forum where all parties affected by the Brahma Kumarism could come together to resolve problems, BK, PBKs, ex-BK and non-BKs (friends and families of BKs).
In addition to the discussion element, we set out to research and collate as much original information about Brahma Kumarism, e.g. Murlis, posters, financial data, manuals etc, and present it in a manner so that any non-BK, or newcomer to the BKWSU could learn as much about the Brahma Kumaris as quickly as possible without the interference of the the Brahma Kumari leadership, being brainwashed or having to subject themselves to the Brahma Kumari leadership.
It started out fairly benign and innocent, just a place for ex-BKs to hangout and share experiences, but very quickly we uncovered a number of very serious issues which the Brahma Kumari leadership had kept covered up ... and then BK Dr Mrs Hansa Raval and the BKWSU tried to shut us down and hurt us using legal action (which they lost).
Soon after that, we discovered even more condemning revelations, that the BKWSU had extensively falsified their history and the develop of their philosophy, and the conflicts between various splinter groups became too much, so the forum was split into this one for ex-BKs and another one for BKs, PBKs and other "believers".
You want to destroy BKWSU ... You want to change BKWSU?
The BKWSU is just part of life. In life there is ignorance, corruption, manipulation and abuse. Let's destroy them ... Everyone has to decide which side they take and take a stand against such issues wherever they lie. If you don't take a stand against them ... you are agreeing with them and support them as strategies.
- I find it interesting that the BKWSU translates "being exposed" with "being destroyed".
You want to create a new splinter group using the BKWSU philosophy?
God, forbid ... not in 5,000 years or 14 Billion.

"Sintex"? A syntax exercise? I am not sure what that is Patzcuaro but allow me to be 'straight up' with you.
As long as your next post starts with, "Look, I admit the Brahma Kumaris are an End of the World cult but ..." I am happy to read any serious appraisal of them, including positive aspects.
What I would resist is any more obvious 'BK whitewashing'. We are not outsiders nor dumb neophytes
I'll continuing being honest ... for whatever reasons you have not explained to us, you have chosen to take an 'apologetic' position towards the BKWSU, and even support the cover up of their core motivations. It is your right to do so ... but please show our insights and experience a little respect as well.
All this "seeing the positive" and "syntax exercising" sounds like a Brahma Kumari 'Appreciative Inquiry-type" service device ... directing our attention where you and they would want it.
You see, my bottomline is this ... I don't think a cult who believe 7 billion people must die in order that they rule Heaven on Earth has any positive to offer. I think the "positivity" the Western BKs are desperate to invent, is a cover up ... a facade ... a deception. Any good Westerner BKs have invented to make them look better is only being taken by the BK inner circle and used to that older more fundamentalist aim.

It is also an "eye opener" for those who have not been sucked in, so they become aware where they are heading ..! Reforming BKWSU...??!! How could an ideology based on mere myth and fiction be reformed or corrected .. ?? It will be like trying to reinforce a shaky upper structure built on loose soil ..??
That made me smile ... thanks for sticking around and keep it all down to earth.
