In reply to: norman - 25 Mar 2002 's message, "Sunburst Community???" on 06:06

The Sunburst community never collapsed, although it went through a tremendous downsizing. There are those who have stayed together all these years and who still work with Norman Paulsen in the Solar Logos Foundation, because what he teaches works for them. I've read Dusk and Willow's book about Sunburst, and I guess you could say the downsizing was a result of personality conflicts or any of the other reasons that people come up with, but is that how people would explain the failure of Yogananda's attempt to establish a brotherhood colony at Encinitas? It is often the case that when people make a spiritual committment to a certain path, that they get down the road a ways and begin to think that it is a bit more difficult than what they thought it might be, or perhaps other desires grow and draw them away from the path. We could give all kinds of explanations to this type of thing, but to the spiritual aspirant, the simplest way to put it is that the student was not able to overcome the ego and was led away. No path can be judged by those who tried it for a few months or a few years and then moved on. Attaining the pearl of great price is the most difficult thing that can be accomplished in this world. It takes great effort.
If you truly want to know if what Norman Paulsen teaches works, ask those that have applied it diligently to their lives. Pretty much everybody that I know who has made it part of their lives can tell you that it works. If God realization is what you want, his teaching will take you there.
It is said that the proof is in the pudding. Does the Kriya that Norman Paulsen teaches work? Ask those who have applied it to their lives.
I see people judge Norman Paulsen from the comfort of distance. Meet the man yourself before you believe what anybody has to say about him. I know him. He is a genuinely enlightened man, willing to help any sincere seeker to achieve the same.
