Re: Kind of general ramble - you'll see.

Interesting post by Just Someone. He says 'What could be done about the SES? Who knows?' I think he is talking from his heart, we cannot change the past so it is better to move on and not seek revenge. I think the SES will change itself and move to Dr Roles idea of Brotherhood. Discipline has had i...

Re: Kind of general ramble - you'll see.

Hello cheerful one!

I really do admire the writing, no tongue in cheek!
I can't write like that, not for toffee. Writing's such a slow medium for me.

Re: Kind of general ramble - you'll see.

Thanks for your kind response, Bonsai.

Just to clear any doubt, the 'teaching' I was involved in wasn't in the day schools!
Hmm, could have been a bit scary, reading that!

After the ramble

Sometime around 1967 was when I joined SES London. The first 3 or 4 terms were heady, liberating. The people in the groups were interested & enjoying the general openness that practising the exercise, meeting and discussing the vast ideas produced. The official SES-ers were courteous and very co...

Real spiritual development, if there is any such thing, surely leads to self-trust, an independent spirit and to humility, not an attitude of ‘specialness’ or exclusivity that you pointed out, and the associated superiority that some seem to feel about attending the SES. People I would regard as ‘s...

Falseness all around, puddles of it. Broke...
