I have read your latest correspondence with Jim and others in which you express the hope of kindness between people "who have received a great gift."
You might find my reaction to be weird, but I feel that the whole problem with Prem Rawat's teaching is implied in your supposedly friendly expression. Let me try to explain.
What is common between people tends to unite, and what distinquishes people from one another tends to divide. Skin color is one example, a really silly one that causes untold amounts of useless problems. Likewise, religion succeeds in harmonizing only those like-minded people who accept certain belief systems. The antagonism between religious groups can, and often does, become horrendous.
What is the great gift that you speak of? If it is the gift of life, then you have hope of achieving kindness and friendship independent of belief systems. If you mean the gift of Knowledge, then there is little hope, because some people consider their own heart-feeling to be inherent rather than a gift from Prem Rawat, whereas others have accepted Rawat's teaching that the heart-feeling is a gift from him to his students. The belief system espoused by Rawat is bound to get in the way of harmony, because, I believe, it is not a universal truth, or at least it is obviously not a truth that is universally acceptable.
If we can't agree with each other about this question of whether or not the knowledge of the heart is a gift from the guru, then at least we can be civil to each other. All that is required for civility is to acknowledge where our difference lies, pinpoint it directly, and then accept the situation. The difference between us is our reaction to the philosophy of life proposed by Prem Rawat. Period. On the level of the heart, we remain the same. It really is that simple.
There is no need for your heart to be poisoned by correspondence or discussion with ex-premies. The perspective of your intellect and the belief system you maintain might be challenged by such correspondence, but there is no danger for the heart to be poisoned, at least as far as I can tell. I have never once felt my heart poisoned by premies or ex-premies. Certainly the truth could never poison my heart. Whatever hatred or unhonorable expression which comes from the catbox, I simply see the value or the lack of value in it. I don't "take it to heart" so to speak.
If you feel that there is anything incorrect or unfair about ex-premie.org, then please specify each instance one at a time. So far, your general accusation of incorrectness and unfairness is not helpful because it is too general and too vague.
In the spirit of that which we share,
