Quotegohonzonchanter So whatever you are chanting for, or whatever you believe when you chant either negative or positive will materialize in your life. The above post is a false claim. Its wrong, and proven wrong. At best, its the Confirmation Bias. And SGI by Ikeda deliberately uses that bias to deceive the multitude, and destroy their ability for critical thinking. As stated, there i

Ikeda is far far richer than Oprah! Again, you have to wonder, its impossible for all of those SGI billions to have come from mere "donations". Sure, many many millions were collected in donations. But there seems to be mysterious billions which have flowed into SGI, and then were repeatedly moved all over the world, as the money was put through the washing machine. Maybe one day

More psychic predictions realized! There it is, 10 million in 2008, and that is a minimal lowball. And JRI pays James Ray expenses, as predicted. But to who does JRI owe "$5.3 million in liabilities"? It could be to other companies that may be controlled by James Ray indirectly, for example. Where is the money going? asks the auditor. Hopefully they will open up the wash

Another perverse result of this, is that James Ray will easily be able to spin this to make his followers in this area believe he is still a "wealth expert". Because as stated, the first lesson these guys teach in "wealth" is the alleged ability to 'legally" protect your assets by using various complex financial instruments and asset protection trusts, and who knows

even more interesting, is if one takes an even closer look at the text and the metaphors in the article by Stever Robbins, on that site that appears to be run by Steven Sashen. The basic Story of the article by Stever Robbins, is that if you take your best suit to the CLEANERS, and it gets wrecked by their negligence, then you are supposed to feel HAPPY-JOY-JOY about this, as opposed to se

Meadow is right on the money. There is so much information there, it will take a lot of time to go over all of it. Notice the embedded commands right in their advertising blurbs, and how the Byron Katie Story is told in the images. Byron Katie did do some stuff for cheaper or even "free" for a while, that is to build things up. Every group like this offers some stuff for "free

also, it would be wise to make a copy of any important information from the Wayback Machine...as the Wayback Machine will become yet another internet scrubbing BK Washing Machine.

that link above, really shows how incredibly powerful these thought-reform systems can be. Just think, being able to design a thought-reform system, that can colonize a person's entire language system, their thought patterns, their emotional disconnect, their entire identity. Of course, not everyone goes into it that deeply. Only people who have that certain vulnerability for a particul

(transfered post from the thread) Byron Katie and "The Work" Participant Reports In other areas, its been stated this board/thread is probably too blunt for most BK people. (but many of them read it in secret! They ALL read Janakis blog, for example...) ;-) It might work better as a WARNING to people beforehand, before its too late. To plant a seed in the mind, and if they

Hi Christa, The point you make is very important. "It's a shrewd, subtle bit of marketing that points to a great deal of ego inflation and a propensity for risk-taking". B-i-n-g-o and Bingo was his name-o. Its no accident that they made it sound like Byron Katie appeared at Harvard, that is the type of tricky advertising they do all the time. BK always tries to make it

Yes, its very ironic. Byron Katie always hold all the cards, all the power. Its all one-sided, and no matter what happens, everything is 100% your fault, never hers. So no one even knows what the hell is going on in this so-called Byron Katie Turnaround House. Its all secret. Where is the oversight? And how can she operate a Turnaround House, which sounds like a treatment center, when she is

No wonder they suppressed the book, A Cry In The Desert. It tells a different Story. For example, on page 26 of the book, the writer states that Byron Katie learned meditation from the therapists at the halfway house. That is a new one. Which therapists taught Byron Katie how to meditate? The book mentions that her husband Paul and daughter Roxann were there, so maybe they will know? But

recently read some info about what are called "Nested Loops", which are used in this type of hypnosis that was coined by Richard Bandler and relates to the hypnotherapy of Milton Erickson. Byron Katie uses these techniques as well. These are basically stories within stories, sometimes 5 stories at once, that can set up a symbol/metaphor system, and in the confusion they create, serv

Here is a educational excerpt for analysis, of the text about the "Washing Machine" from the book "A Thousand Names For Joy" by Byron Katie. At the end of CD#3, 3 hours into the program, 3 minutes from the end, Byron Katie tells a long story-induction about a "washing machine" and her "doing the laundry" while in Amsterdam, Netherlands.

· Here are some rough notes about the Byron Katie 5 CD set “A Thousand Names For Joy”. Its important to begin the process of analysis, which is ongoing. · This is not just a typical CD of strange stories and comments by some lady who sounds kinda “weird”. Not even close. This is some very dangerous material, for certain people with certain vulnerabilities. Some people would just switch it o

by the way, I know some of this might not makes sense to some folks...that's fine. You don't have to take my word for it. Once we get some full-text transcripts of this stuff, the complete "story" (Inductions), (like the Washing Machine story), then we can send them to various advanced hypnosis people, without the Byron Katie name, and ask them what they have to say about it.

Does anyone happen to have the ebook, or text from the Byron Katie book, with the beyond ironic title "A Thousand Names for Joy"? I (very painfully) listened to the entire 5 CD's, and made some notes which will be posted soon. But at the end of CD#3, 3 minutes from the end, Byron Katie tells a long rambling 3 minute story about a "washing machine" and her "doing
