Re: 'Secret' mantras

Has anybody tried to sell a slightly used Secret mantra on eBay? Mine cost me a weeks wage, how about a starting bid of $1?

Re: Sydney School for Self Knowledge

A lot of people who have left the SFSK seem to see themselves as victims, blaming Mrs M for just about all their problems and take no responsibility for their own actions. Do we know what's best to do in every situation or believe we are always right? No we are all human beings with all our frailtie...

Re: Sydney School for Self Knowledge

Hi MW, I would have to agree with others that Mr Mavro would only see you if he thought you were useful in some way for whatever plans he had. So if you wanted to survive in the SOP you would have to play along. With Nina I actually liked her mainly because she knew most of the time I was playing th...

Re: Sydney School for Self Knowledge

I would agree that Nina Mavro and Donald Lambie are dancing to the same tune. You only have to read the posts in this forum to see it is true. What I would like to know is who is the puppet-master that is pulling their strings? Maybe spiritual organizations should have mission statements showing the...

Re: Sydney School for Self Knowledge

Although I know next to nothing about the SFSK Man on the Street I can understand where you are coming from. After 14 years in the SOP I left because in my humble opinion everybody in it including myself was asleep. The material being given was all plagiarized from other sources and nothing seemed o...

Re: Sydney School for Self Knowledge

All religions proclaim that the purpose of life is reunion with the original source of all life - GOD. The English word 'religion' comes from the two Latin words, 're' (again) and 'ligere' (to link). Jesus said the most effective way of achieving this is through love - love of GOD, love for humans, ...

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

Re: 'Secret' mantras

Hi Actuallythere, Bertrand Russell said "Men are born ignorant, not stupid. They are made stupid by education" The education I received in the School of Philosophy really made me more stupid as the years went by. OK why did it take so long to recognize this? Not wishing to go into semantic...

Re: 'Secret' mantras

Sorry to say actuallythere but people are stupid staying in SES. I stayed for 14 years before I admitted to myself being stupid. Once you can admit this, you are free to leave. Our Ego's brought us to school and also allowed us to leave.

Re: Sydney School for Self Knowledge

Thank you for your honest answer Man On The Street. I think if we followed our conscience who is our true teacher, Schools and Guru's would become redundant. I know from personal experience if I listen to my conscience it is always 100% right.

Re: Sydney School for Self Knowledge

Hi woodgreen, You were lucky your parents were not Jehovah's Witnesses, or was it karma! The first time I heard a different take that human life is not exclusively reproduced by sexually, was by a SOP tutor who told her class 'that we pick our parents' so we can complete the lessons we need to learn...
