Re: Us gay folk...

I think that finding this forum has changed my life. In the last 24 hours I have been able to accepy my sexuality and come out to more people than I ever thought possible (using the great internet of course as I don't live in my home country anymore) and have also realised how much of an effect the...

Re: SES PHILOSOPHY: what it’s like and what to watch out for...

Neil I am very interested as to why my statements have not been answered or challenged. ... Obviously defamation is a far more important issue than physical and mental cruelty and abuse. The point you raise is interesting but can be explained. Bluemoon was in the SES when she first posted her but ha...

Bluemoon

Stay true and honest. That's all you've ever been. The SES wants you to question everything: yourself, what you do, the universe, etc but it doesn't like it when you question the SES or the motives of the SES.

Re: Bridge over troubled water....

An interesting article Bluemoon (I'm not sure I can handle all these changes of name) However I have huge huge issues with it and I'll sight some examples from it ...unwritten laws of the universe enshrined in the principles of harmony, rhythm, balance, mutuality, reciprocity and connectivity.

Re: Just found you.

Welcome Blue, Thank you for having the courage to tell your story too. For sure you are not the only one who has suffered and I doubt that you have ever exaggerated your feelings or the experiences themselves. More likely most of us have tried to supress the true accounts of what happened because th...

Re: SES Origins and Character

It seems, from experiments that are being carried out on the brain, that we are run by our brains with no real intervention from what we think of as 'I'. One experiment showed that when a person is presented with a choice, the brain has already made the decision 6 seconds before the person thinks h...

Re: SES

The jury is still out in my mind about whether the SES is a 'cult', or has cult like tendencies. I would like to see them show that they are not, which they could do through reforms, transparency and sincere, full acknowledgement and apology for the past, all of which could easily be made public th...

Re: What is it like at St James now?

The SES and its world organisations are nothing more than an enterprise that sponges off the gullible and the vulnerable. Ask yourselves, what good has this organisation done for the community that it has flourished in? All it has achieved is to accumulate great wealth for itself and the people who...

Re: What is it like at St James now?

My favourite god son has just started at St James senior school and I came across this board when googling his new school. Hello Cariad and welcome to the board, It is very difficult to tell what the schools are like today but I think many of us remain concerned about whether the schools have signi...

Re: SES Advertising

This ad will backfire. People are far too sceptical to be sold "happiness" so blatantly. The abuse of the words 'happy' and 'freedom' will turn many people away cringing and then laughing in disbelief. If only! I'd like to believe that the general public are cynical and skeptical as you s...

Re: SES Advertising

At the very top is a sponsored link by the SES, which relates directly to the poster. That takes you to a very specific website that has all sorts of flashy bits to reinforce the message of the poster. Lot's of video clips from people who have supposedly done the course. The whole thing makes me fum...
