Quotecultmalleus I'd like your thoughts, Jack, given that you have studied literature and writing at tertiary level, what you think of his writing skills. It's too much drudgery to read the whole lot of it, but if you could just analyse his skills (ignoring the Hubbardistic content) in a completely neutral way, I would be very interested. I'll have a read and give you my '

Hello eveyone, I haven't disappeared, but I have been away from this forum for a long while due to study commitments. No excuse, but I plan to refresh myself on what has been written and discussed here. It may take a little while. Presently, there are fires in our area and much of our resources (material, mental, emotional) have been spent coping with this situation. I can report that

What's the latest on DJ? I think the JC's prophecy of the 'End Times' is finally (yes, finally) coming to fruition. But, of course, not the way they expected... Lord of the Flies, anyone?

I've heard it said that humour (Aussie spelling) is an effective means of getting your message across. I heard a joke the other day that can easily be rewritten to apply to the LGAT drone... In a hospital room a dying man is surrounded by his family and friends. The doctor turns from his charts and announces, 'This man needs a brain transplant. It's a new, experimental procedure

I suppose, from Landmark's point of view, it suits them to have their pupils think in terms of 15 out of 10 (and higher). The way I see it, traditional methods are seen as rather limited and that, no doubt, gave salesmen like Werner the break they needed to sell their product/technique. For instance, we can all agree that the limit for eyesight is 20/20. Now, I'm not an optometrist

There's probably something wrong with me, but that description above is funny. Very funny. You're one very imaginative fellow, Zeuszor! Now, if only you could get a mate or two to help you make a video of that.

QuoteAlexShalmanI would have rated our relationship as a 15 out of 10 before, the girl of my dreams, and if you can believe it, our relationship got even better after that. Better than 15 out of 10? Careful both of you don't explode! But seriously, do you listen to yourself? This kind of hyperbole doesn't even do Hollywood any favours. Yeah, I know you want to tell the world how happy

Thanks Zeuszor. It's no secret that I've been very busy of late. I do check up on the happenings here once in a while. With regard to this whole 'God loves me best' claim, it makes me think how insecure children will sometimes stamp their feet and cry out, 'Mum and dad loves me more than they love you. So, there!' But most of us grow out of that...

Thanks for bringing that article to light, Zeuszor. It's been a long time since I've visited the pathetic lunatic assembly known as the JC website/forum to read the dangerous writings of its narcissistic leader, Dave McKay. I'm probably missing something vital, but every electric impulse of my being feels quite ill having to wade through his self-important rhetoric. A dire

I've really enjoyed reading the Last Goodbye on the JC's 'Goodbye' thread. It would seem that Kirstie has her own mind. She's willing to defy the 'great leader' and she's apparently going to hold her line, with integrity. It's very sad that McKay has to start planting the seeds of doubt and shame in her mind. Already he is manufacturing a distance betw

Why would Dave want to share his own piece of heaven, right here, right now? The way I see it, he's got it nice and cozy. Young folk doing his bidding; a wife that serves without complaint; an income from seemingly many sources. Like so many 'gurus' he's put himself on top of the hill and he likes the view. It comes with power, looking down, unchallenged. A trembling old ma

It kind of smells a little like Scientology, i.e. the sci-fi words and imagery. But it has that odour of Christianity-Buddhism with a squeeze of Occultism, or some such, because of the reference to the Creator and Wizards. And, then, it goes a bit Socialist-Green with a strong hint of the Nuclear Industry. All in all, the overwhelming fragrance is Commune-style living with a global agenda steeped

OK, the 'secret' is OUT! Impacted, aka Hans, did 'verifiably' create the known universe and everything outside of his direct consciousness. It would be wise for each of us NOW to admit our inauthenticity and submit to his will. BTW, I'm handling all transactions at this time...

Hi Freedom Fighter, I think you're onto something. The world could do with some colourful kid's books on the subject of cults. And once you've finished the Dick and Jane series, I think there's always room for another Asterix book: Asterix and the Cults, perhaps. I'd love to see Obelix tossing stoney-eyed cult members around the forest!

Thanks for the video link, dogmother. I think the nurturing relationship between the crow and the cat is a blindly obvious metaphor of how seemingly opposing beings can defy our most cynical ideas and actions. Apostate, it's being made clearer and clearer with almost every one of the JC's posts just how naive and confused they are. Dave's typically inane response reveals more:

Okay, it may be unfair of me to suggest that Tolle likes to inhale the great Rastafarian jolly weed. And even if he did, so what? But looking into those eyes, I'd certainly suggest he considers taking his holidays to someplace else other than The Netherlands! He might be a little sick with the flu?

Wow, the quality of this thread! Because I'm still on dial-up, the WifeSwap show is out of reach for me. I do have broadband friends, so I think I'll pay them a visit very soon. Obviously I haven't seen the show, but Apostate's perceptions are a joy to read.

Anticult, that 'creepy' picture of Tolle is quite revealing, I think. Now, where have I seen that look before? Oh, yes, the expression of someone on too much giggle grass, if you get my meaning! With regard to 'watching' your thought processes (again, a notion by someone on too much weed), of course it's easy to understand. I mean, I have a thought and I 'watch�

A weird aspect of Tolle's 'wisdom' is when, in Chapter 1, he states that we should start listening to the voice in our head. He calls this 'Watching the listener'. But isn't that contradictory? I mean, is he saying use the mind to listen to the mind? You can read the Chapter 1 excerpt here: Barnes & Noble

QuoteapostateI would suggest that the wider community does have boundaries. The wider community requires its citizens to observe basic standards and those who fail to comply can expect to be asked to leave areas where they are creating a nuisance, face a fine, or even be arrested if they put their feet on a train seat, refuse to turn down their stereo, pick a fight etc. Yes, boundaries of behav

Dear All, It would seem that emotions have been running pretty hot at this forum, especially recently. I think it's important that we understand that each of us has the potential to stray from common sense and decency at times. As the proverb says, we're only human.
