Re: Nepal is set to become republic

Hi jaycdp. I was in Kathmandu and Pokarah a few months prior to the elections. The Maoist party wasn't popular with a lot of people I came across. But it was the most active party I saw, and it has attracted a lot of disenchanted people, particularly the very poor and uneducated (longstanding corrup...

Re: Avakyt Dadiji - Dadi Prakashmani's Death

Hi Arjun, it seems it's another valid question that elicits more than one answer. Funnily enough, I just finished watching a tv documentary called 'the womb'. The scientific claim is the foetus' earliest noticed movement is at 8 weeks. Any idea if ShivBaba has said anything definitive?

Re: Avakyt Dadiji - Dadi Prakashmani's Death

What a terrific and entertaining thread! I came across it yesterday and have been thoroughly engrossed. I also have something to add. In the late 80's one of the pieces of information I was given, ratified by several bk sources (and also several lokik mothers) was that the soul enters the womb at ap...

Re: Rape motive suspected in BK killing - RIP BK Dawn Griggs

... The identifying of the only redeeming feature would have been way beyond me. The only redeeming feature - so God's promise is not completely compromised otherwise. I'll clarify - my comment doesn't in any way refer to the actual incident. There are imponderables for me in this situation, for ex...

Re: Rape motive suspected in BK killing - RIP BK Dawn Griggs

There may exist times when the advice "Baba is responsible" applies to the work even then personal responsibility exists. What do you consider to be true? I don't differ with what you've said, up to the point of your above sentence. Once Baba is at the point of responsibility for our welfare it mea...

Re: Rape motive suspected in BK killing - RIP BK Dawn Griggs

Even so it would be very unfair of me to suggest that Bap-Dada was responsible for the words and actions of any BK, all senior Sisters and Brothers included. Hi John, considering you have to be surrendered to become a senior, and BKs are requested (by Baba as well, I believe) to treat their views/p...

Re: ex-l's recent postings damaging how the forum is perceived?

Try being a bit more friendly here, in general, ex-l, to yourself as well. You'll be surprised it doesn't come across as a sign of weakness, but of strength. I'd appreciate seeing a side of you that wasn't usually teetering on hostility. It cannot be good for you. It would allow people to appreciate...

Re: Lee James

was the riddle figured out in an open discussion of one's interactions and triggered by many forum discussions Glad to hear it resolved itself into something useful for you, tete. I look forward to hearing what it was. Good to hear you enjoyed my post. I have a powerful ambivalence toward the BK fa...

Re: Rape motive suspected in BK killing - RIP BK Dawn Griggs

Easily for them (the Seniors), BKs are awash with insecurity and programmed not to think, question, and most of all ... follow through logic. It is largely futile, if not damaging into one's BK career, to demand proper answers and express their doubts. A curt little spooky message, a moments faux s...

Re: Lee James

A bit of a late reply to this thread, but as I knew Lee quite well ( we were in the same year at NIDA) what I have to say may flesh out the picture of this soul who recently expounded the significance of the Mayan calendar. Prior to our BK lives, as an actor, I knew Lee to be a fearless, enthusiasti...

Starlight

Iron Age energy and Golden Age energy are worlds apart. Light from the LMC supernova, which is now calculated at 164,000 light years to reach earth is, I suspect, radiating its (massive) little heart out. Its light directly observable to us during the Golden Age - doing so according to the capabilit...

Re: Interesting stories and information

A Vicar is tending the garden in the Vicarage.
A passerby stops to admire the garden's beauty, and comments
" You and God certainly have done a wonderful job here, Vicar!"
The Vicar replies," Yep. You should have seen it when just God had it."

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

My churning on the 5000 year cycle maybe a bit simplistic for the doubters here. The experience of "Regular" time is suspended when we're in the state of soul consciousness - you may have noticed this when coming out of meditation. It's the same way in the first 2500 years of the cycle. Except the d...
