Re: Sydney SOP 70's. A Different Perspective.

I'm glad there are people like you who wish to engage with this daunting philosophical task, one for which I am temperamentally unsuited. I'm reminded of someone telling me once what it was like to work for the United Nations. He said that if the idea of arguing over the meaning of one word in a dr...

Re: IS DAVID BODDY'S NEW 'MEDITATION GROUP' A CULT?

No idea. But just saw he opened a Yorkshire branch http://www.silenceonsundays.com/groups/westyorkshire and that everyone is free to open their own cell :-) http://www.silenceonsundays.com/groups That's the old decentralized model used by SES, which makes it quite different to many other spiritual g...

Re: Sydney SOP 70's. A Different Perspective.

@MW I'm not sure that the comparison of this forum to the SFSK is apt. If the moderator were to start deleting comments to steer things in certain ways, that would be unreasonable - but there are no restrictions on opinion here. This is a discussion forum. So we freely discuss things including the w...

Re: Sydney SOP 70's. A Different Perspective.

@Unique I'd like to think that we are all free to express our selves in our own way and in our own words, even if our contributions are not always of the highest philosophical/debating standard.No one should feel obliged to post only "safe" words and "proven" statements here. Oth...

Re: Sydney SOP 70's. A Different Perspective.

@MW what a minefield language can become You bet. It seems that becoming aware of the psychological effect of verbal cues used by a persuasive group, and how these verbal cues can be used to deceptively indoctrinate its members, is key to understanding it. By the same token, it might be an idea for ...

Re: Sydney SOP 70's. A Different Perspective.

@MW I think MOTS was pointing out that it is impossible to have a universally accepted definition of what the truth is, so in fact it is better not to use the term with the false assumption that everyone is agreed on what it means. I really love the Cherokee story, a wonderful rendition of common na...

Re: Sydney SOP 70's. A Different Perspective.

I thought the truth is that the Mavros have not been telling the truth. Was this not established by four members taking the trouble to go to India and independently double-checking what they had been told to believe? As to The Truth, used with capital letters, it was the official mouthpiece of the c...

Re: Sydney SOP 70's. A Different Perspective.

@Getting there As I've stated before in this forum, my username was taken from a line of text chosen at random. "Actually there was a cat on the wall." Without questioning me about it, you assumed some kind of implication about what the "there" is in my username. No, it is not SE...

Re: 'Secret' mantras

I hope I didn't give the impression that I considered psychological abuse as being any less serious than physical abuse. You didn't at all, I just wanted you to know I don't consider psychological abuse as being any less serious than physical abuse. My intention was merely to show that it is often ...

Can't someone get hold of an audio file and email it to people? One could then upload it onto the internet, for example onto Youtube.

Also Daffy may know how to host audio files here.
