You're my nephew's age. I surmised an age for you given when you were at MUM. Salyavin supposed provided his horoscope from which one can figure the date of birth almost down to the time.

I never looked at physical age so much as mental age. It's sort of like you can have a room full of people of different age groups but same mindset.

It was Judy who brought that phrase about being open minded, attributed to her dad, after I accused her of being close minded on a topic.

What is happening to FFL is we are getting old and cranky. Some of us are approaching our 70s and some are already there. And we have some that are a generation younger (apparently Salyavin and MJ).

Yes, and I must say you lot aren't being a very good influence. How are innocent young souls like me and MJ going to learn what's right with the type of role models we've got here?

It is kinda unusual to watch a group fly this out of control. Usually moderators will keep things civil but then there's nothing like a "free for all" either. Some of us like to keep our anonymity because we don't want (having been TM teachers) unwarranted reprisals from the TMO. Even Judy recommended it.

I think it's been quite civil actually, just a few resignations in protest and a few lawsuit threats. Could have been a lot worse. I blame all the spiritual detachment we have.

But anyway the place also has to keep up it's appearances as a "loony bin" which doesn't seem to hard to do. :-D

Remember, it's entirely your decision whether you are inside or outside the asylum!

    Curtis, I'm still LOLing as I reply. What got me laughing was
    your comment about what is overrated at this stage of life. Being

    Have fun tomorrow and I look forward to your report.

    I've watched this will some alarm because last time I was posting
    here I had to try to back down Jim and Nabby from creating
    fantasy ill-will scenarios about my personal life in response to
    me posting my opinions about Maharishi's teaching. It was an
    escalation of their MO since I began posting here. I am happy to
    see it resolved with Jim creating his own page while hilariously
    claiming that it was because OTHER people were not being civil
    here! I do not believe it will last any more than his
    participation on then other "enlightened" forum, but hope to be
    proven wrong.

    I think you were right to go the legal route because they were
    crossing a weird and disturbing line Barry. There is no parity
    between how you post here and what those guys were up to.

    FFL has gone through many different incarnations as strongly
    influential posters come and go. I viewed the end of the Judy era
    as a positive thing, but was disturbed to see how others
    escalated to fill the gap. Judy ran her routine in a much more
    interesting way IMO, so despite strongly dissagreing with her
    most of the time, I was entertained and prompted to write more
    many times because of her participation. That degraded in the era
    of the clique she led that involved the Share bashing era in the
    girl's locker room. Shit got weird and unpleasant, but worst of
    all boring.

    I don't know where FFL is headed now but I am an optimist. I
    intend to report on my experiences tomorrow at the "event" in
    Alexandria. Last I checked almost 800 people had reserved a seat.
    I had some contact with people from the old days who were kind
    enough to share their perspective. Although I remain a skeptic
    and am not really going with anything close to an "open" mind
    (overrated at this stage of my life I believe) I will go for the
    many layers of entertainment. One of the greatest aspects of the
    entertainment will be posting here about it. FFL has been a great
    resource for my thinking and writing. It has been so useful that
    I have put up with some people with unfriendly agendas against me
    here. It was the ticket for admission.

    Sorry to see things spiral out so far here but I am encouraged to
    see the changes.
