Pike River Mine Disaster



Oh what a terrible disaster. And worse thing is, very likely it didnt need to happen. If only someone (better, more? honest even perhaps) was in change of taking better care

Im easily able to feel a whole lot of empathy for those people. The incident sticks with me (in my mind), as at around about the same time, i also remember how i was also trying to deal with my own different type of hell again too (but however that story of “my own” can wait longer.But i might try some other day in future to do my best to try to explain. Reality is i don’t really want to need to.For one thing it might hurt somebody who’s of my own flesh and blood.And also cause i find it shameful.We would like to be able to look up to our own flesh and blood right?.Maybe that’s my problem with “too mich” pride?.) Or something

Anyways. With absolutely no disrespect intended to families connected to Pike River mine.In contemplating how they are still likely to be feeling.They know how their families body’s all still sitting down there in that cold mine. The tunnel has already been long sealed over.Sometimes must also almost seem to them like perhaps? there is just few “other people” who even care enough to want to help aid them, in any recovery of their loved ones long lost. How? can they even be expected to move on

Loving people surely wouldn’t feel able to. Not easily anyway

My heart  really goes out to those good people.Those loving folks.I feel for them.I understand  how unjust it will continually feel

Like i already said, without any disrespect intended to any of those good folk.Let me just say “metaphorically speaking”, our own exclusive brethren families were also long lost way down a dark tunnel too, so long ago.Except difference is, its a cult tunnel Yet most of us too, still also continue to hurt like hell over it, much alike the same way Pike River Folk will

One day, Bruce Hales in all “his great wisdom”,had decided it were time for something known among brethren and of course us  ex brethren as well too, as “the review” (there is a little info on the exclusive brethren review here https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Plymouth_Brethren_Christian_Church )

This was a time when exclusive brethren families would (out of the blue) arrive on their ex brethren families door step. Talking about love and how they had been kinda sent by old Brucie (“nobody will/could ever be better than i am” hot-shot) to come especially top tell all us ex eb,  how sorry the brethren now were, for how we had all been badly mistreated

I know myself how i was automatically overcome by so much joy.To me it almost felt as if it might nearly be the next best thing,to what it might feel like if Jesus were to suddenly appear from the blue and had of come back to earth

Some people might understand? . how it might feel to suddenly see loves ones (you loved and had never stopped yearning for ) arrive back in your life after being missing from your life for around 30 year or so


But sadly ,the fun and any hint of sincerity ,were to only last for around a month or so, for many of us. Next thing its gone again. And been taken away from us once again ( the suggestion is that ole hot-shot himself, might have been the one who said it needed to happen that way. So as to tweak-us a little more yet, with the nasty tools of cult pressure)

Our main crime was (as ex eb) that we didn’t take the bait (swallow it completely hook line n sinker, and agree quickly to just rush back to the brethren to rejoin their ranks

The “point” with this blog post is this.My question is this (without A any intention . on my part, to want to cause any form disrespect to Pike River Mine folk). I wonder how? those Pike River Families might all feel now. Had powers that be, chosen to get their families all out of that mine for a couple of months or so . But only to then decide to send them all back in that dark hole again, and seal the mine back over again

How could it happen ??


Came so close ……. but sadly still remain so-far from healing us yet


About ExEB

I'm a agnostic/atheist . Interested in learning more about science. I also am an "ex-member" of a group most publicly known within modern times, as the Exclusive Brethren. Whom are an off-shoot of the original Plymouth Brethren group. I'd say it likely my personality could possibly be described as quirky.You know ,as in being , unconventional , unorthodox , unusual, off-centre, strange, bizarre, weird, peculiar, odd, freakish, outlandish, offbeat, out of the ordinary, bohemian, alternative, zany I'm sure iv'e been classed as "crazy" . Many times But then, being born into a group like the exclusive brethren. Doesn't lend itself ? to tend to produce things considered as being "very normal" .Does it I escaped the Exclusive Brethren cult as a 15 year old teenager. Even since that time iv'e been trying to adjust to living life outside the cult. With much of my life being lived within the genre of "wild colonial boy" style. In the general sense of a church-rebel picking and choosing from role models who appeared within-life along the way. But as the exclusive brethren cult had traditionally maintained a general church-rule , of need to shun and totally excommunicate any ex member of their group.Treating such people as if they were dead. Thus this situation developed more to do with my need of following traditionally enforced church-rule , as apposed to it being so much about "life-choices". Certain emotional experiences, and parts of life in general, have led to me adopting a sense of low self esteem. Which is a situation i still deal with from time to time. Through my ongoing interest in science. I find i am able to gather more information to help me better understand my situation. Much about life for me, has often seemed like a massive puzzle.With many missing pieces.
