Re: How Cults Rewire the Brain

Never to be able to remove anything you post on an internet site isn't how the internet works , it's how it is in many cases but it doesn't have to be. Clearly information can be deleted by someone somewhere. The software of this forum allows deletions. To justify non-deletions by saying 'it's simpl...

Re: Sydney School for Self Knowledge - 2

Yeah, there've been loads of heated exchanges on these threads over the years, recently between Dr.Alan and MOTS, none of those got locked. Surely we're not into the old misogynistic territory that it's so much more 'ugly' when women fight?!! Admittedly enlightened almost immediately lowers the tone...

Re: Ian Mason Interview on Youtube

I think Ian Mason speaks very well and very convincingly. I agree with this view of Economics. Humans can't keep on raping and pillaging the planet to destruction. However, given that one of the tenets is that tax revenue should be derived partly from the value of land ownership rather than wholly f...

Re: Coming to terms with stupidity

I wonder if you ever left .. would they still be your 'good friends' I seriously doubt it! Quite, these people are not your friends. They are 'seekers' and happen to attend the same 'spiritual' organisation as you. That is your common bond. Your presence also validates their own choice. In a way it...

Well any illusion that Nina Mavro et al will fulfil that role should be knocked on the head pronto. Unconditional love it ain't.

Re: Rules, regulations, and directions made in SES/SOP/SFSK

Earlgrey said: SES has a mission, as dreamed up by McLaren, and that is to raise the consciousness of society and create a renaissance. That is correct and it even goes further than that. The SES considered itself, under Leon MacLaren, to be the current manifestation of ‘School’ as associated throug...

Re: SFSK Devotee

I put it to you, 'enlightened', that it is none of your business why Ella.M.C. engages with this forum. She has her reasons as, no doubt, have you. You have criticised this forum in the past as being 'toxic'. Well in the words of Dr.Alan: 'we often project a dominant quality of our own character ont...

Re: Mistakes against the Shankaracharya Tradition

Thank you, Dr.Alan, I've received the PM and it has cleared some things up. I'd like to echo Tootsie's thanks to you for your posts which are valuable to me and must have taken up a lot of your time. Dear Mr Demon/Gerasene/Nutjob, I hope you're not so unhappy all the time as comes across in your pos...

Re: Mistakes against the Shankaracharya Tradition

Hello Dr.Alan, I wonder if you could comment on something which has been niggling me for a long time. First some background, when I first went to the SES I went, essentially, to discuss the 'meaning of life' with other people who were interested in such things. What made the biggest impression on me...

Re: Mistakes against the Shankaracharya Tradition

Dr.Alan said: So here we can see the traditional Advaita Vedanta systematic approach of those who follow the Shankaracharya way. It does not mean being half monk and half householder in the middle two stages of life. Which is what SES try to do. This is what confuses so many people who join SES. The...

Re: Nothing Wrong with SES

the children school subject was the subject of an independent inquiry - and has therefore been fully documented. It would be unrealistic not to accept those things which the enquiry documented Yes, StillatSES, it should be unrealistic. However this hasn't necessarily been the case. The conclusions ...

Re: Mistakes against the Shankaracharya Tradition

Thank you, Dr. Alan, for your reply about the '8th mistake'. Very interesting indeed. I would agree about the egoistic approach of Leon Maclaren. The values of the SES regarding men and women are from the Victorian era. Maybe Leon Maclaren was trying to recreate the values of his childhood. Certainl...

Re: Mistakes against the Shankaracharya Tradition

8th mistake – treatment of women (although this one is unfortunately in accordance with the Shankaracharya tradition) SES set up a culture, based on the conversations with the Shankaracharya I believe, in which women were the possessions/chattels/vassals of the men. Women were to surrender to and o...

Re: PR man arrested! Oh... wrong one.

That resonates perfectly, Leonie, with things people said on the thread 'Shame on you' (Clara Salaman's book). Acknowledgement of past wrong-doing is key. Proper, serious acknowledgement has never happened. Events have been glossed over by a PR 'spin' machine ('wonderful analogy', potter/wheel/hand ...
