Is that a dissagreement?Abrahma Kumar wrote:Positive news ...?
I thought these were examples of co-operation and/or charity feel free to expand on your reasoning.
I know this is a BK forum thread, but on the other hand, I am guessing that there are also many other charities and spiritual organisations that are able to also give "positive news". Here's just one of the same title : http://www.positivenews.org.uk/cgi-bin/ ... elcome.cgiPositive news ...?
This is a Tom Munnecke quotation, is not it? Tom is some sort of BKWSU supporter, what exactly is his relationship? Is he a BK, ex-BK, microphone or just contact soul?amaranthine wrote:Taken from http://www.givingspace.org from a paper titled:

Abrahma Kumar is correct. This is not a news story.amaranthine wrote:From a presentation by: Julia Häusermann, MBE, President of "Rights and Humanity"
A conspiracy theorist's overactive imagination might see in that whole episode a tale of a BKWSU sympathiser engineering the creation of a BKWSU Positive News topic on an anti-BKWSU web site whose contributor's posts revealed a pre-occupatied with their bad experiences with the BKWSU.... I would say that a high proportion of the posts on this site express a bitterness towards the BKs and that the reason for this is that the most regular posters seem to have had a bad experience with the BKs that resulted in them leaving. Hence I often leave this site feeling its a bit one dimensional. I think this is a shame as I agree in principle with a lot of what is said here. Because of this, I do get a bit concerned that if someone was contemplating becoming a BK, and their research led them to this site, a lot of the points raised here might be ignored due to this blatant bias.
I don't know if you are pointing towards me or the PBKs, but I wish to clarify that there is no conspiracy involved in creation of this thread. It is only to invite BKs to participate in this part of the forum. How the BKs respond to it depends on them.Abrahmakumar wrote:A conspiracy theorist's overactive imagination might see in that whole episode a tale of a BKWSU sympathiser engineering the creation of a BKWSU Positive News topic on an anti-BKWSU web site whose contributor's posts revealed a pre-occupatied with their bad experiences with the BKWSU.
Personally speaking, I think as soon as a "Copyright" is placed on an article it is no longer "God's", "Godly" nor how "God" works ... (accepting Shiva to be God in this case or not). To me, Shiva appears to give unquestioning to all - without desire for rewards which is what rights are all about - and allows each one to take and make of it what they wish ... even a money making business, as we are increasingly seeing with the BKWSU community, or the BKWSU itself for that matter ...arjun wrote:But as ex-l has written somewhere, mere organization of conferences, rallies, fairs, retreats, mega programmes etc. cannot be expected to be accepted as positive news. I suggest that individuals (like BKs, PBKs or even ex-BKs) can write their experiences in this thread how they have benefited from their BK experience in their life.
I wanted to start a thread of this kind long back, but the fear of Copyrights issues stopped me from taking a step. As far as I have seen, there is no copyright clause mentioned on the 'Purity' magazine. If any BK has an objection to my quoting of any positive news from the BK magazines, they can intimate me through this thread or through private mail.
Dear brother,If you see my post again you will see that I clearly say, "BTW everyone, I do not think that any such conspiracy theorist exists."
I think I remember the Living Values book being mentioned in one of the Avyakt Vani or BapDada speaking to the Living Values team of BKs. But I haven't read about the Janki Foundation in any of the Avyakt Vanis. So, I suppose that is a private/ancilliary organization of BKs. If any BK member could throw some light on these two bodies or their position within the BK Organization it would be nice.Mr.Green wrote:Should the activities of the Janki Foundation or the activities of the Living Values team be put under BK news?
My immediate response was NO but in the time that it is taking me to write this I realise that I am indifferent. So long as these reports are based on facts then positive news is after all positive news so their inclusion is valid.Mr Green wrote:Should the activities of the Janki Foundation or the activities of the Living Values team be put under BK news?
