Re: What was that? ( ... Meeting in Madhuban with Bap-Dada)

Yes, the 69000 dollar question that I would love to know the answer to!! We all would. That it is God-like to us there is no doubt. However, we would appear like Gods to stone-age man (though we would flash more technology at them I do admit). As for end of the world, 5000 year cycles and dire warni...

Re: What was that? ( ... Meeting in Madhuban with Bap-Dada)

Didi was in London wasn't she? I think I remember her vaguely in 1978 or so in Kilburn. Indian Sister. Or was that Sudesh? What happened to Aden - I remember him well. It seems to me that there is a small problem here with this channeling thing. Brahma Baba (or the PBK guy) never channeled in the Me...

Re: Having a partner, getting married & becoming a mum, dad etc

Och ... sin's not all what it's cracked up to be! It's very much over-rated! There are a great many dating sites on-line now which makes the whole process much easier - especially for a woman. Put an ad on and you could get 50 replies. You won't always get happiness from it though, as you well know....

Re: Having a partner, getting married & becoming a mum, dad etc

I cannot ever remember a sister saying that it would be 2-3 years time. I remember Murlis saying that Baba came like a ship in the night and that nobody knows when he first came and hence the time of Destruction (The 100 year Confluence Age). Also that Destruction could never take place until the ch...

Re: Having a partner, getting married & becoming a mum, dad etc

You should never burn your bridges with the BKs. Always give yourself something to go back to. ex-l - you have a sad story. In fact, we were always told that you needed a good job so that your service would be better, e.g. if you were a lecturer, then you could influence more people than a road swee...

Positive Thinking

I even had to give this course myself and so I know a bit about it (It has been a long time though). I thoroughly enjoyed doing it too. Many ex-BKs are saying that it doesn't mention God, and so is a fraud, and is just used to get people into doing the 7 day course (which I did twice!). Positive thi...

Re: Having a partner, getting married & becoming a mum, dad etc

I think it is sad that children are drawn in in this way. With any religion they should be left alone to make up their own minds and not have it forced down their throats. If anything this is against Shrimat - you have free will after all and this control thing goes too far. I remember being summone...

Vimanas

I was always fascinated by these. Alegedly built around now(!!) by engineers and scientists, they are controlled by thought power alone.

A clean BK joke or two..

In our centre the Sister in charge used to regularly hold public meetings outside of the center itself in public halls. One evening we were waiting and waiting for the great unwashed to flood in. I asked the Sister what she put in the paper and she said: Only a short sentence "Self help through medi...

Re: Having a partner, getting married & becoming a mum, dad etc

Dear Enlightened, I am not sure whether you are male or female. However, to love, for you, willl be easy. I expect the most difficult thing will be finding a perfect match for that. Quite rare indeed outside of spiritual organisations. I suggest a trip to another such organisation - you may meet som...

Re: Starlight

Whilst it may be accepted that the speed of light changes over time, this in no way solves the problem of the original poster! For example, the light would have to reverse direction and go home! It's velocity would have to become negative! (and all in the blink of an eye). No sorry, no amount of med...

Re: 5000 year cycle, age of the Universe, other life forms

Please note the Wikipedia info on Halton Arp re redshift: Since Arp originally proposed his theories in the 1960s, however, telescopes and astronomical instrumentation have advanced greatly; the Hubble Space Telescope was launched, multiple 8-10 meter telescopes (such as those at Keck Observatory) h...

Spin-off Cults

I wondered how many spin-off cults had been spawned by the BKs. I know there was a German woman who formed a cult and I heard there was another organisation somewhere where the leader was an ex-BK (not the PBKs).

A Question for PBKs

Since the ordinary BKs are unable to answer this one then I thought we may get a glimmer of hope from you guys! The Universe is so large as to be considered by our earthly minds as infinite. There are millions and millions of stars in our galaxy the milky way and millions and millions of galaxies. M...

The cult of the BKs

With so many ex-members calling the BKs a cult, I would be interested in knowing their views as to what has to be done so that their perception would be of the BKs NOT being a cult! Dressing up in white and meditating at 4 in the morning may be one sign of a cult but many Muslims do similar things f...
