Re: Mistakes against the Shankaracharya Tradition

But I don't believe reaching out to those still in SES in the hopes of drawing them out is good either I’m quite interested in those 2 views. I had certainly appreciated supporting those who've left SES was the main reason for setting up this forum. However, my contributions have frequently been di...

Re: Nothing Wrong with SES

Hello StillatSES. Just to add my support to AT's comments about your honesty and strength, which you have shown in abundance. I also agree with his main recommendation to you: I recommend you continue on the simple course of inquiry and analysis, it is no more nor less than that. You have entered (q...

Re: Sydney School for Self Knowledge

Hello again Nick. You asked for honest answers and here they are. There are some questions in there for you as well and I would appreciate your honest answers to them. A key positive quality in a human is forgiveness. Meaning, it is process of a change in attitude and emotion towards the offender. H...

Re: Sydney School for Self Knowledge

Hello Nick, and thanks for your posts. Contributions from current students in SFSK can only help the debate in this forum, and again, I urge other students still there to post here. I disagree with almost all the points you have made, based on my years in SFSK, but happily I can agree with your comm...

Re: Nothing Wrong with SES

SES students tend to be talked into using the word "negativity" in the way that you have above through a subliminal, almost hypnotic process, by the repeated way in which it is used by SES tutors in the classes. Then negativity is bad, they say - asking difficult, challenging questions of...

Re: Nothing Wrong with SES

Hello StillatSES. I was looking forward to your response to Dr.Alan's points about mistakes made by the SES. I was hoping for a well-reasoned, logical and careful examination and refutation of his major points (in contrast to the emotional name-calling which has characterised a few recent attempts a...

Re: Sydney School for Self Knowledge

Hello Earlgrey. You may recall from my previous posts that I work as a psychologist in Canberra. If it would be helpful to you, I would be more than happy to have a talk with you over the phone. If this might help, you could send me a PM.

Re: Sydney School for Self Knowledge

it is not her intention that the School has prime value, rather that she is of prime value within that School. She would rather a few people stay around her and serve, than there be more students in the School. If the teaching of the School is so important how could she be content to just let us al...

Re: Sydney School for Self Knowledge

Hello MOTS: re your reply on the other "PR..." thread Middle Way quoted: "Their spirituality is not casual, it is the most critical thing in their life. Without their spiritual path, they have not much interest in life." MOTS replied: Do you think this is true of the tutors in th...

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

It is because they are under the illusion that they are in search of self-awareness, while in truth they are in search of self-importance. I like that AT. I also found the following at http://www.gurusfeet.com/blog/spiritual-people-are-worst-liars "Never believe spiritual people blindly. They ...

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

That is a 100% lie, about child abuse, from a purportedly spiritual organization. AT, your statement yet again has me wondering whether those people who are so important in their spiritual organisations knowingly lie or whether it is unconscious. Here in Australia the doubts and concerns about Mrs ...

Re: Sydney School for Self Knowledge

Thanks for your post still looking. You have well summarised your reasons for leaving. I think it's important that other recent members of the exodus also consider posting here - even just a brief explanation why you left - as it's so helpful to others. Also, the more people who post here, the more ...

Re: Sydney School for Self Knowledge

I cannot even imagine what is going on in the mind of this "initiator"? How can someone be manipulated into accepting such a responsibility? The gentleman concerned comes from an employment background characterised by: “you must always obey the boss’s orders without question”. So while hi...
