OPPONENTS to the sale of an old school site will meet tomorrow.

The site of St Anne’s School, in Lewes, is due to be sold to spiritual group Subud by East Sussex County Council, for community use.

Opponent said St Anne’s site should be used for housing.

The Argus has previously reported on the controversy surrounding the bidding, which saw two other parties turned down, even though their bids were higher.

Councillor Rosalyn St Pierre says the sale should be delayed until residents’ concerns have been addressed.

Tomorrow’s meeting in the council chamber of Lewes Town Hall starts at 7.30pm.

Subub
I was recently informed about a Spiritual association called Subub founded in 1925 by a so-called Muslim young man named Bapak Muhammad Subuh Sumohadiwidjojo in Semarang, a port on the north coast of Java. He states on the website (http://www.subud.or
g.uk/index.html) Subud is not a new religion but does claim to provide a better way to live life by adding a deeper and meaning spiritual dimension to existing religions.

Islam in matters such as belief and worship are clear cut. There is no room for vagueness and if someone asks a question then it is a duty of every Muslim to rectify that misunderstanding.
Using an analogy when a student goes to college the teacher will impart knowledge and teach the student and when he/she makes a mistake it is the teachers’ duty to correct the mistake and advise.
Similarly in matters where Islam is portrayed in a misleading manner then is it the duty of every Muslim to correct and impart knowledge with reason and logic.

You are welcome to follow the link and read up about Subub but to make it simpler for the reader and I have summarised his spiritual experience which has led to the Subub and consequently leads to the experience of Latihan.

Firstly he claims the experience transforms his life and that of others. Whilst walking one night he saw a ball of light in the sky. Subsequently the ball of light entered his body through his head and travelled through his body. Upon returning home he saw the inside of his body filled with light. Without control over his body he body begun to move and he walked into the study where his body went through the motions of a Muslim praying. He also states an “invisible force moving him” and a “second person in his body”. These became a regular occurrence during the night. As these occurred independently he accepted these events to be the will of God. The movements of prayers gave way to dance and martial art movements and subsequently created a deeper understanding of his feelings and his experiences and a connection with all the levels of life in the universe: the material, vegetable, animal, human and levels higher than that. (Eventhough the website does not explain what is meant by “higher level”).

As this inner change continues and Subub is regarded by his friends as a person of wisdom and insight an experience a few years later is the turning point and he receives actions from God’s power and is able to transmit to others via contact called “Pembukaan” or opening.

The website continues to mention there is worship handed down by teachings of prophets or messengers of god. There is also worship that arises spontaneously from the human soul being guided by the power of god – Latihan.

Furthermore in 1951 and Englishman – Hussein Rofe arrived in Yogyakarta. His coming was predicted by Subub. Rofe was instrumental in spreading Latihan beyond Java.

Actually it is Subud, not Subub. It originated in Java, which is a predominantly Muslim country, but its members follow whatever religion they choose, or,if they prefer, no religion at all. There is no teaching, only explanations.
