Subud Vision - Feedback

The Editors - Change vs. Authority

Synergy. From stefan, October 9, 2009. Time 11:34

Congrats and thanks to whoever edited this. (Rosalind?)

Not only a useful discussion, but a demo of creative sparks and synergy arising from a good email exchange. I'm hoping to see more of this going on in Subud circles.

Dear editors: Iīm sorry if my previous feedback was too passionate or hurt your feelings in some way.
I only pretended to make my point: although I certainly agree that our Subud experience shouldnīt be centred in Bapakīs figure or sayings, we shouldnīt forget that for many members -including me- Bapakīs advice is considered of great value.
This involves we should expect an evolution in Subud for the coming years, where tolerance becomes the instrument for our development.
I guess we will have to find a middle point between the more traditional points of view and the more "revolutionary" ones, so to say.
Maybe, this situation shows now because we are reaching a point in which the first generation(the pioneers) are passing away. Of course, they sticked very close to Bapakīs figure.
New generations, who didnīt experience "the living Bapak", will take their own possitions. This different aproachs will generate some friction, but thatīs not necessarily bad, ŋis it?
With respect,Manuel.
