Re: SFSK Devotee

Hello AT. Are you saying that you were specifically, literally told by your teacher at the SFSK that deeply held egoistic thoughts and beliefs would be unearthed by the practice of chanting the mantra? I'm not sure about "literally", but that is how I recall it. Keep in mind that students ...

Re: SFSK Devotee

Prospective students of the SFSK might wonder at the stark contrast between what the SFSK, in its website claims it delivers, namely: “inner peace, joy and happiness” and “excellence in thought, speech and action”, and the hatred displayed in ETiCS’ abusive posts. They may wonder that after the 10 y...

Re: SFSK Devotee

Hello GD. I miss Enlightened Tongue in Cheek Sausage. He was only here for a short time, and he's only been gone a day, but I do miss him. Sure he sprayed around a lot of verbal abuse with the odd obscenity thrown in, but it was his fantastic sense of humour which I now so miss. And let's face it, t...

Re: SFSK Devotee

One of the many useful practical tools included in Part 1 of the SFSK “curriculum” is “observing unnecessary talk”. That material states: “you may find yourself talking to someone who is obviously not listening, nor interested in what you are saying. In such cases, is there any point in your continu...

Re: SFSK Devotee

I am pleased that finally we have a post from someone in SFSK that doesn't rely mostly on insults and finger pointing. I look forward to reading the discussion on these important issues conducted in a similarly measured and non-emotive way, and hopefully with no more disparaging comments about indiv...

Re: SFSK Devotee

Hello enlightened. Mrs Mavro has mellowed and made some positive changes, it is definetely not as strict and severe as it once was. While this is good to hear, please excuse a little healthy scepticism. Could you provide more information about what the changes are and why you think they are positive...

You may well be right GD.

Until a genuine attempt is made to address the specific points made in this forum, not relying on avoidance, obfuscation, misrepresentation and ad hominem attacks I won't be continuing with this dialogue.

Re: Sydney School for Self Knowledge

Hello Nick. Glad to see you're still around. Yes, of course, that is why I am on this forum and asking you to provide the evidence. I assume your last post was directed to the people who have yet to provide that evidence. It can't be directed to MOTS who has many times stated the same thing. I agree...

Re: Positive Vibration.

Hello NJ/GD I have started to read “The Art of Happiness” a handbook for living, by HH Dalai Lama & Howard C. Cutler. It has made immediate sense to me and is, “Dedicated to the reader: May you find happiness”, which is nice. I recommend it. I'm pleased you find this book useful. My favourite pa...
