Re: Message from BK

I agree with Martin. But I do think the comments should be focused clearly on BK and his ideas and shouldn't be allowed to wander off into extended comments/debates on subjects and topics unrelated to the original topic and mostly unrelated to BK. There needs to be some flexibility but if the comme...

Re: Criticism

I am not sure what you are saying. Do you think you are part of a cult now? I cannot claim to be unequivocally free of the us-vs-them cult. And on that note, speaking of being free, I'll wind up my own contributions to this thread with this reflection on "Why can't I free your doubtful mind?&q...

Re: Message from BK

Ok, so I'm coming around to a BK related forum dedicated to discussing his model/ideas being a worthwhile option. Not as a kind of BK booster club, so to speak, free of constructive critique, but because those who arrive here inspired by the forum 's namesake, primarily interested in reading and di...

Re: Message from BK

So, yes; criticism is/should be allowed. Where else would you criticize BK but in the BK forum? (this is not a fanclub) Ok, so I'm coming around to a BK related forum dedicated to discussing his model/ideas being a worthwhile option.

Re: what is not in mind is abstract

Just came back from doing errands, here is where we can learn what BK means by mind, I will try to find more later. https://www.bernardokastrup.com/2015/05/the-linguistic-con-game-of-mindmatter.html Yes, BK makes valid points ... My point is only that as long as transpersonal Mind also remains an i...

True enough ... The us-vs-them cult being at the core of all cults, while belonging to it we are our own worse enemies.

Re: Criticism

To all on this board: For the most part I have enjoyed my stay here, but at this point I need to move on. My original purpose here was to discuss Kastrup, who really no longer interests me. If his recent actions to evade opposition haven’t convinced you he is a fraud in search of a cult following, ...

Re: Message from BK

Ok, so I'm getting some significant interest in a BK related sub-forum. So what would be the guidelines for moderating it?

And why not to the topic-specific forum, since it's surely topic-specific?
