Re: Links between the SES and "the Secret"? -

To my mind 'The Secret' encourages personal responsibility in changing your experience of the world for better. I certainly don't remember anything about gurus, teachers, cults, emotional suppression in it.

Re: A reality check

It seems to me that for all the guff talked about change, there is something missing from the response to the enquiry, the dealings on here, the meetings that have taken place. Humility. I think I would be more convinced that lessons had been learned if it was the leaders of the SES and St James tha...

With all the possibilities that exist on this Bulletin Board to express yourself without editorship from overzealous or issue-led denial, I am surprised that chittani suggests that Governors would be mad to post here. The response that posts might get is dependent of the content of the post, and in ...

I don't think a tagline under the adverts on the tube would stop lonely, frustrated, vulnerable, or intellectually led people from staying in the SES OR putting their children in St James. Shame, but because of what it purports to offer (i.e. the answers to the meaning of life). It is only when you ...

From dim and distant memory..... It was presented to me from the age of 8 upwards by both SES and St James as an exceedingly rare and privileged golden state that you could only achieve by lifetimes of hard work and service, I can't honestly remember the actual phrases they used but the way it was u...

I always split it into its two english words ( ie Self and Realisation) and understood that depending on your definitions of Self and Realisation it can be made to mean all sorts of things. How I might use it now is as a verbal expression conveying a momentary awareness of the full extent of your ho...

Yes Stanton, and how many years has the SES been up and running! A positive step, but considering it is now a long while since Townends report and no apology is forthcoming for the abuse and lack of governance pointed out in that, but for cocking up on a privacy issue. Like coming to a great fire wi...

Celia was jus wonderin if you had any flashbacks to your previous embodiment, and whether they included sitting at the front of a goup with a beer gut that covered your lap? No?

Sam, Quit whingeing that we are stuck in the past. When we have your dismissive and agressively-put posts to continually remind us of how the governors are treating us over the current situation, it is patently obvious how deep the problem CURRENTLY is. I seem to remember you saying that you were go...

Mr P lifted the receiver and punched the speed dial to kook central. He hated the mess that their carrier pigeons made when they delivered messages from the leader. This one had sounded urgent. 'Must speak with you urgently re change of material'. What on earth could the young nitwit mean by that? S...

Come to think of it, has anyone ever heard anyone from the SES management/upper echelons apologise? FOR ANYTHING? EVER? It is a very smug position to count yourself in that no matter what you do or say, it can be explained away into a philosophical lesson, and no action is taken against you. The que...

Stanton, one of the things that rankles about your positive attitude to someone else's extra work is that however laudable the idea that negative can be turned to positive, we have already been used to bring about change in St James, by being the poor unfortunates that populated the early 'experimen...

Yes Stanton, wise words. But can you also see that it is very easy to distrust anything to do with the SES because in so many people's experience they have been let down over the subject of privacy in the past. This distrust is something that at present the governors will have to overcome by explici...
