It's still there, but sometimes links don't work. Try going to Yahoo
search or the "clubs" page and typing in exsatsangi, and you should
be able to connect.

Well, I'm just sitting here at the computer amusing myself, going
through a few hundred piled-up posts at a.r.e. while I do my nails
and watch a movie.
The thing is, the eckthugs at a.r.e. give a pretty good picture of
the "Higher Initiates" and "Official Cult Clergy" we find in "real
You can't really compare them to child-molesting Catholic priests
because of the way the cult defines the "higher" initiations. The
Catholic Church makes it quite clear that priests can be total
scumbags as people, and still perform their sacramental duties as
what you might call "channels" for Holy Spirit.
But...e-kult is different. There will be a section in my new website
with tons of quotes on the "meaning" of the initiations. How
they're "earned" and decided upon between "mahanta" and "chela" ...
how each is an indication that one has "mastered" the plane of the
prior initiation. When you get your second initiation, you're told
you've "mastered" the physical plane...and don't have to return
unless you want to. At the 3rd, you're told you've "mastered"
the "astral plane". Etc. I kept telling myself that evidently
the "mahanta" knew something I didn't, but I would have felt like a
total phony to accept more initiations.
The cult also makes it quite clear that "lowbies" are supposed to
consult HIs, and not trust their "inner voice". I've posted quotes
about that. Although of course, Klemp covers his butt at times by
bitching & whining about some of them. <ggg> Funny, isn't it, that
although he's supposed to be omniscient, omnipresent, and omnipotent
in the "soul" body, as the "mahanta", well...he still promotes and
relies on HIs who may not be all they're supposed to be.
It's all confusing, you know? None of it makes *any* sense!!
Well...it's only confusing until you recognize that it's all a bunch
As a cult member, you handle all this nonsense by telling yourself
you're just not "spiritually aware" enough, that your "doubts" are
put there by the "master" for you to overcome & grow spiritually, etc.
Have a nice weekend, everyone!

about Eckankar. Their poor widdle ego gets hurt!!<GG>

I don't think so. The Church does not condone nor ignore such
behaviour. When they are found out, these priests are stripped of
their collar. A few have gotten away with it, but guess what.....it's
not just priests, it bottom patters like Jerry Mulvin. It's
Scoutleaders, teachers, neighbors.....If you indict one group for
choild molestation, address the whole fucking lot of them, or give me
some hard core statistics.

Oh Bzzzzzz! All this Mahanta, chela, HI bullhockey! You know it. I
know it. Everyone knows it's all a comfy little teeny weeny little
club of misfits. It's Harold's Tiny Empire where he makes up the rules
and pats his patsies on the back for being good Eckborgs for
recruiting new members. The glossy books. The shiny rings. The "MYSTIC
WORLD!!!...The secret word....your "spiritual name"!! That one cracks
me up!!! It's like a Commander Cody Decoder Ring! YOu just get sucked
in because you originallly have no life and they give you something
that resembles one but if you are smart enough, and strong enough, and
you grow up, you find that Eckankar is bullshit. Detractors are NOT
all disgruntled. Most are clear-headed ex-members who show the soft
white underbelly of a stoopid mail order god marketing scheme they
fell for. (DUH! As I smack my forehead)

Whoa...hold on thar Quickdraw! What about those people who see Rebazar
Armpit BEFORE they join Eckankar? Oh, I suppose THAT'S OK! THEN you
can trust your inner voice or in this case inner vision. If you see
Paul Twitchell in Burger King sitting there wearing a paper crown and
munching a Cheese Whopper, that's probably a REAL encounter with an
Eck Master right? But if you see Elvis pumping gas in Sedona, it's
just your mind playing games.<G>

Last night I saw Harold in my bathroom wearing "smiley face" boxer
shirts and he was shaving his nose hairs with one of those those
circular nasal saws.

I'll tell you what makes sense. Harold's bank statement. I think the
only plane he's conquered is the Pinda Plane. Yep, right here on
Earth. He's duped a few thousand sheeple into buying shares in his lie

" In other words, when it comes to religion... it is up to the seeker
to find that path that suits their growth, not grow the path that
suits their opinions.
This is a very revealing trait of Eckists like Grundie. If I am not
mistaken it is indeed the Eckist who "grows the path that suits their
opinion"! It's simply another example of pot-kettle-black. The Eckists
certainly love to espouse the freedom offered by Eckankar to develop
and nurture a personal way to God using the constructs set forth by
their religion and conveniently justifying their hatred, backbiting,
vengeance, and their opinions in the name of the sugmad .
I know this is hard to imagine, but religions are there for spiritual
growth. Debate societies are there for the sort of activity you're
This statement, of course, coming from a hardcore, incessant (almost
addicted) debator of her pseudo-path.
>Now that being said... again, you seem to believe that all ECKists
agree with everything within Eckankar. I don't know where it was that
you were a member lurk, but I've never been in a group of ECKists that
behave in this manner.
This of course exemplifies my previous assertion that Eckists "grow"
the path to justify their actions. Either you're IN or you're OUT of
Eckankar. There is no middle ground allowed.
There is always debate and discussion. There is always free will,
too. You remember that one, free will? How about this one... the law
Then why does cher "interfere" with those who do not believe that
Eckankar is truthful? Detractors do not have such a law. Eckists do.
We can interfere all we want...it's her and the others that should
keep their trap shut.
That the Mahanta will not interfere with the chela's life because it
is their sacred psychic space? That the Master must be invited by the
The mahanta interferes in every part of the Eckists life. His role is
to brainwash the believer and sucking the ever loving spiritual life
out of every one of them and forcing them to believe in the
absurdities of Eckankar.
>Again... I have this image that you simply were never a member of
>Eckankar at all, and are simply a usenet troll looking for a home.
It never occurs to a person like cher that the path she follows is
wrought with lies and deceptions. THAT is why people like Lurk are
there to make sure no on makes the same mistakes.BTW, Lurk was a
member of Eckankar.
>surely is evident that you have had no experiences from which to
discuss this subject. That this discourse and belief of yours is
steeped in some other source which has taught you this sort of thing
is true about these paths you discuss.
A formidable portion of Ex-Eckists had been steeped in the path longer
and deeper than cher. Some have been there right from the beginning,
knowing Paul Twitchell personally. I think they have something very
worthwhile to offer. These are the people that Eckists hate the most.
Eckies put their hands over their ears and silently say "SHUT UP, SHUT
UP..ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!" when people like Raphael, David Lane, Lurk,
Samorez, and Colleen speak the truth.
So from that point of view this discussion is pointless. In other
words, your desire to preach from your own personal source of
information without referencing the source is only going to hinder
this discussion. Accept that I am not a follower of your viewpoint nor
of the source of this viewpoint... Okay?
Lurk's viewpoint is crystal clear. So is Lane's and others I have
mentioned. The Eckies DARE not entertain these points of view because
it challenges the very foundation of their belief system. No one wants
to be told they are wrong. In ths case, they are...and it is killing
them. Read their futile efforts to discredit non-Eckists or Ex-Eckists
who know that Eckankar is after all, total bullshit. The only people
who don't know the facts are Eckists.

I guess I didn't complete my thought there. What I meant was, some
people may look at what goes on there and think that the a.r.e.
online eckthugs are just a small handful of aberrants who just
didn't "get it". Sort of the way eckists will say that Twitch just
did a teensy bit of plagiarizing <ggg> so it's okay.
Their extreme fundamentalism is more obvious there because of the
circumstances...the presence of former members speaking out, and
interfering with the cultic recruiting they've been so deeply
programmed to do, and the freedom of speech here that they'd like to
stop, but can't, is also waking members up & getting them out.
Quite a bellicose lot those posters! To

Depends on the circumstances. There's that "Swordsman of the Suggie"
stuff. Mostly, eckists *are* lulled into seeming very mellow & all
that stuff, it's that cult-mask that Twitch wanted his recruiters to
have, which he knew would work best in attracting new members but not
being offensive the way some other group's members are. In "real"
life, uncomfortable questions are handled by changing the subject,
directing the cult member to "contemplate" on it or something until
the result brings one's thinking in line with the cult's "teachings",
and other things like that. Basically, "spiritual success" is shown
when you believe & agree with it all.
They get angry for a lot of reasons, probably. Which is dumb. It's
sort of the way fanatic sports fans get.

I think you missed what I was trying to say. You see, since they
have a hard time *really* justifying the abuse & power & control &
plagiarism & stuff, what they often do is compare it to other
religions, especially Christianity, and bring up the crusades &
inquisition & plagiarism & stuff. You know...the old John Wayne Gacy
did it, so Jeffrey Dahmer's justified argument.
Other religions (except for wacky cults) do NOT make ridiculous
claims for their "HIs" and "clergy".

Uh, Alf...hate to tell you this, but it's sort of more than a few,
and generally the Church would just re-assign offenders to another
parish and hush it up. But people stopped taking it, started
speaking out and demanding that something be done. And it's costing
the Church millions, and it's going to be even more as time goes on.
but guess what.....it's

Good grief!! I'm not picking on the Church specifically!! Yes, it's
everywhere -- in fact, a 75-year-old hall monitor was arrested in my
area recently for messing with kids!!
Hey...before I was even sent to Catholic catechism in 3rd grade I'd
already heard plenty in my grandmother's kitchen. My grandmother
brought ancient wisdom from Poland, passed down through the
generations...never leave your children alone with a man, *any* man,
including their fathers, and especially priests!! <ggg>
The awful thing is, it seems that with equal rights a lot of woman
don't deserve the title "mother" anymore. It's disgusting. On the
news the other night, I was only half paying attention until it was
too late, but my six-year-old niece was watching and there was one
story about a woman who gave birth in a bathtub and drowned the baby,
and the boyfriend/husband tossed the baby in a dumpster. And another
one...I think a man beat a two-year-old to death. Men doing it is
bad enough, but women aren't any better anymore. And kids see this
stuff, and wonder....I had a long talk with my niece. Told her it's
very sad, but it happens. Like when I raised rabbits, I had a few
who were *very* bad mothers and would kill their babies as soon as
they were born, except I would be right there to take the newborns
away and give them to a *good* mother, and the bad mothers would end
up as stew.

So, Alf, when you joined you didn't have a life? <ggg> Okay, so you
weren't in that long, but fer crissakes, stop blaming the victim!!!!
Even Harold is a victim, Alf. But in his case, yes, it's quite clear
from his biographies that he was sort of "lost" when he got sucked
in, he didn't "get it" in the Lutheran seminary, didn't quite know
what to do with himself, joined the Air Force...I don't know if it
was just for something to do or to avoid the draft, but in the Air
Force he saw one of Twitch's early ads (I think in Fate magazine) for
bi-location, and thought it would be a good way to get home to the
farm he missed so much, without getting into trouble for being AWOL.
He was sort of a wussie, odd, a misfit, no self-confidence or
anything, and yeah...he was ripe for the picking. The cult gave him
a false identify, put some meaning into his life...
I think the messed-up ones are more likely to stay in for a long
time, become completely absorbed into the eckanborg mentality, rise
in the cult, and that's where we get eckthugs.

Oh, fer crissakes, *everyone* has odd dreams & stuff. I think it's
just as likely that these "Reb" sightings are due to pesky entities
(which Twitch wrote about) playing tricks on humans. And yes...if
it's something that will tend to keep you in the cult & make
you "believe" then it's okay. If it's something that encourages
independence, it's *not* okay. If it's something that does *not*
make the cult appear "good" then there's something wrong with it.
In my case, duh, I accepted the cult's ecksplanations and tried to
make my own "dream experiences" fit, because I *did* have a very
weird & striking dream ecksperience with Klemp before I'd heard of
him. It was only after getting out of the cult that I woke up enough
to see the *truth* in this dream, and others -- they were warnings.
Clear warnings that something was wrong, and to stay away.

I'm sure they weren't "smiley faces". They were probably EK symbols,

I don't think Klemp is in it for the money...he's not that type.
He's in it for the personal power & self-esteem boost.

People seem concerned over the "looks" of Rebezar Tarz.
Interested, yes. Concerned, no.
The paintings of him, in my understanding, came from descriptions
that various people, including PT, made of him. So an artist, who
also may have seen RT, drew his portrait.
So is it safe to assume that Reb looked like his sketch? Paul
Twitchell was very specific about Reb's appearance in his early
writings. Twitch detailed Reb's physicality as a man over 500 years
old (but looks to be in his 30's). He has closely cropped black hair
and beard. He has coal black eyes and wears a maroon robe and carries
a staff. Twitch has this guy down to a tee....right down to his walnut
stained, sandalled feet. No one in Christian literature has EVER
described Jesus' appearance.
So I now have a question. How does anyone know what Jesus looks
like? People believe he was real but there are no
portraits, photos, sketches, etc. except the ones done centuries after
Exactly. Jesus could have been black for all I know. It was the Euro
artists who gave that long haired, Nordic-Woodstock look to Christ. No
one in the Bible ever describes the physical Jesus. Just keep in mind
that it was Paul Twtichell who made several references to Reb's looks.
After all, Twitch and Reb were both Eck Masters. they met in the Hindu
Kush Mountains; drank yak tea, yakked about the troposphere. Paul
should remember what the guy looked like, right?<GGG>
The portraits I've seen make Jesus look European but he
didn't come from that region! Look at the Middle Eastern residents
and see that Jesus would look more look Arabs, Muslims and Jews from
Israel then someone from Russia or France. There was a documentary on
this on the History channel that made good points.
Yeah yeah, we know. I saw it on TV!
I haven't seen the photos change because of these theories. People
even say they have inner experiences with Jesus. What does he look
like on the inner?
Inner experiences with Jesus are not necessarily visual. In fact, I
don't recall ever hearing anyone dreaming about or having an OBE where
a long haired Christ came by and turned water into wine. Jesus
experiences for me are usually in the least, conversational, but more
importantly, spiritually exhiliarating.
Like the photos, a vision people can relate to or more realistic
characteristics that people can't relate to? Does it really matter to
those people anyway?
Nope.Anyway, your original point has been debunked already because
your first Eck Master, Paul Twitchell made the blatant mistake of
describing the physical characteristics of an Eck Master in several
of his books.There is NO room for deviation. So herein lies the
1. Eckists claim to have seen the swarthy Tibetan denizen even before
hearing about Eckankar! WOW, that is heavy!!! It's like the guy is
real and lives in a hut and like, he comes to people and lends a
helping hand...and later when they join Eckankar they get blown away
when they see the black beard and the maroon robe (like that nutcase
from Australia, Michael Wallace)!
2. I had an Eckist friend named Jack Cannon from Somerville New
Jersey. I asked him once if he had ever seen or had dreams or inner
visions of Reb AND if he looks like his pictures. Jack said "Not
necessarily. Sometimes Rebazar Tarzs appears to me as a clean shaven
man in a business suit."
BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHHA! What's up with this bullshit? What's wrong
with this picture Eckies? Like everything else you whackos say or do,
it's always vague,unprovable and contradictory.
Let's get real folks!
They see something familiar and recognize Him as who they
"know". Besides, it's the MESSAGE that the messenger, i.e. Rebezar or
Jesus, brings to the person that's important.
Tell that to your buddies at a.r.e. They like to shoot messengers and
avoid the message.
What a boatload of buffoons!!!

Diana Stanley, who was the official eck-artist for many years, happens
to be my sister. I think she did a lot toward creating the Reb "look"
back in the 70's. I do remember that there were some ink sketches in
"Stranger by the River," and Diana used those, as well as Twitchell's
descriptions as a guide. But, she "fleshed him out," so to speak. I
think she gave him that Burt Reynolds look. lol. The next time I talk
to her, I'll ask her about it. Now I'm curious.

That's pretty funny because I attended a "Dream Workshop" once at a
local community college and it wa just a front for the teacher (Steve
Brown) to get people to join Eckankar. The last day, he brought in a
box full of books and pamphlets on Eckankar. A lady next to me opened
up a book she had purchased and said to me "Doesn't this eck master
look like Burt Reynolds?"
So was your sister an Eckist too, or just an artist hired to "flesh
out" the swarthy Tibetan? Did she do Fubbi Quantas and Gopal Gigio

She did them all. I remember one painting called something like "The
Vairagi Masters," or something. It was supposed to be a representation
of Darwin receiving the rod of power. Everyone was there, from Reb to
Gopal, Fubbi and Peddar. It reminded me of a movie poster where all the
stars make a cameo appearance (like Mad, Mad World, or something.) At
the time, Diana told me that she could see all of these hundreds of eck
masters in the inner.
Yes, she was an eckist through most of the '70s. I think she left
around '79 or '80. Now, she will freely admit, "I made it all up."

YES!!! Thank you very much Stan!! One more nail in the coffin for
Eckankar...once again proven to be a bogus religion.
Diane actually admits to making up the Eck Masters while she painted
portraits of them. It's not Diane's fault. It is the Twitchster who
made it very clear as to what Reb looked like, and Diane was just
trying to be good chela and help with Paul's propaganda! Now let's
recap: We know that not only is Rebazar Tarzs NOT a Tibetan name (yet
he is a Tibetan Eck Master!) and Tibetans don't have the physical
characteristics that Paul has given Old Reb....but now we come to
find that Diane, your sister, made the whole thing up and that all
the little pre-Eckies who see Reb, or Gopal, or Pedal Zasqwatch
before they join Eckankar are either lying or it's coincidence. Yep,
as you dig further and further into the claims, theology, history,
and/or tenets of Eckankar, you can always count on finding yourself
up to your neck in bullshit.
PS: One of my other fave bitches about Eckankar is the book "Stranger
By The River" where Twitch tries to make it sound like it came
from "Olde English"....Oh I praise thee Oh Sugmad and humbly lie at
the feet of thine servant Sir Rebazar Target. HeeHee.
<giggle> Hey...I just thunk up a new word!! Sort of like
Anyway...I'm reposting this here for the public, and also so I can

When I received the sixth initiation, I had essentially already
leave eckankar. I was still hanging on out of some slight
uncertainty, and also
had decided to maintain my membership due to the fact that my partner
remained loyal to eckankar. A year or two had passed while I was in
of serious doubt and skepticism, when the pink slip for the sixth
came. I was surprised to say the least. Yet I wasn't too surprised.
confirmed what I already suspected: Initiations are not overseen or
a mahanta or some omniscient being, but by a computer, with the
initiate reports, and recommendations by the local Resa and other
initiates. I remained in eckankar for years after this, until the day
felt as I did, and we both resigned.
Lest there are those in eckankar who don't yet know this, lists are

initiation lists a while back as I recall). Around the time I left
most eckists were automatically placed on the list every four or five
so. If for some reason an eckist was denied, they would usually show
on the next year's list. Local h.i's in my area (including myself)
routinely talk over the names on the list via the telephone, and give
recommendations to the RESA according to each chela's loyalty and
outer service to the org. Those who were especially "troublesome"
denied the initiation. The RESA emphasized loyalty as the most

This tells it all! Eckankar is just a business. That's all it is
anymore. Even thought I poke fun at Twitch and his "cosmic carnies"

shifty and power mad) but nonetheless, interesting.
This Klemp guy is the "Milktoast Mahanta". He is boring, uninvolved,
and his banal writings wouldn't fare well with a third grade teacher.
This Eckankar is fascinating to me in a sense that after all of
this.....there are still defenders of the "path"!

Teacher Resigns in Plagiarism Case
By CLAYTON BELLAMY
Associated Press Writer
PIPER, Kan. (AP) — High school teacher Christine Pelton wasted no
time after discovering that nearly a fifth of her biology students
had plagiarized their semester projects from the Internet.
She had received her rural Kansas district's backing before when she
accused students of cheating, and she expected it again this time
after failing the 28 sophomores.
Her principal and superintendent agreed: It was plagiarism and the
students should get a zero for the assignment.
But after parents complained, the Piper School Board ordered her to
go easier on the guilty.
Pelton resigned in protest in an episode that some say reflects a
national decline in integrity.
``This kind of thing is happening every day around the country, where
people with integrity are not being backed by their organization,''
said Michael Josephson, founder and president of the Josephson
Institute of Ethics in Marina del Rey, Calif.
Josephson pointed to the Enron bankruptcy scandal, in which an
executive whistle-blower had warned superiors about the potential
consequences of energy trader's off-the-books business deals.
Also in recent months, some of the nation's top historians, including
Stephen Ambrose, have been accused of borrowing passages from other
authors without proper credit.
Pulitzer Prize-winning historian Joseph Ellis was suspended without
pay for a year from Mount Holyoke College after lying to his students
about serving in Vietnam. Notre Dame University football coach George
O'Leary resigned after falsifying his athletic and academic
achievements on his resume.
``It's so hard to keep sending the message that character counts when
you have officials saying it doesn't count that much,'' Josephson
In Piper, about 20 miles west of Kansas City, Mo., students got that
message loud and clear, Pelton said.
``The students no longer listened to what I had to say,'' she said.
``They knew if they didn't like anything in my classroom from here on
out, they can just go to the school board and complain.''
Piper High School junior Brandon Schmalz, 17, agreed. ``That was bad.
She was right, and they were wrong,'' Schmalz said of the board.
Pelton, 26, resigned days after the board ordered her to give the
students partial credit and to decrease the project's value from 50
percent of the final course grade to 30 percent.
Board president Chris McCord did not give a reason for the Dec. 11
decision, which was made behind closed doors. He said it was not
prompted by parents' complaints.
``If I had known all the publicity that would have come with this, I
would still make the same decision,'' McCord said.
One of the complaining parents was Theresa Woolley, who told The
Kansas City Star that her daughter did not plagiarize. Rather, her
daughter was not sure how much she needed to rewrite research
material, she said.
But Pelton said the course syllabus, which she required students to
sign, warned of the consequences of cheating and plagiarism.
Rutgers University professor of management Donald McCabe, who has
researched academic dishonesty in high schools and colleges, said
many teachers ignore cheating, and the Kansas episode illustrates
``Parents are going to complain to principals and the school board,
and teachers feel there's no reason to believe they'll get support,''
said McCabe, whose study of high school students in 2000-01 found
that 74 percent had cheated or plagiarized during the prior year.
What is worse, McCabe said, is that tolerance of dishonesty
disheartens other students, who have to compete with the cheaters to
get into college.
``If they see teachers looking the other way, students feel compelled
to participate even though it makes them uncomfortable,'' McCabe
said. ``The loss of that sense of fairness is the fundamental reason
In Kansas, at least a dozen teachers have said they plan to leave the
district after the school year because of the episode, said Lee
Quisenberry, a teachers union representative.
``You can get away with anything whether you're honest or not,''
Pelton said. The board's decision hurt ``the honest people, and
that's the worst thing about it.''

Yeah, you're no doubt right about Eckankar having only 25,000 members or so.
50,000 is most likely on the high side. Funny, I've come across old (early
'70's) newspaper articles I have in storage that quote the org claiming
1,000,000 members worldwide! Truth and accuracy about membership, much less
anything else, has never been Eckankar's strong suit <g>.
[Non-text portions of this message have been removed]
To all --
Sometimes I wonder where my continuing passion comes from in
speaking out against Eckankar, but I think I might have a clue.
I've always been one to possess the qualities of skepticism and humor
as part of my self guidance through life.
Eckankar is not the only thing I find absurd in my spiritual journey
here on Earth, but also several of the other ways to God presented by
televangelists, Jehovah's Witnesses, Mormons and fantastic
organizations who profess to be the "Only True Way".
I feel a need to clarify something here. Although I have had several
negative encounters with people from all of these disciplines, I have
also had compassion for them. I have had the opportunity to meet and
chat with a hard core Eckist within the last year. I have entertained
Mormons and have had a lasting friendship with a JW.
As far as Eckankar goes, I find that it has been sufficiently debunked
as just another cult and has outlived its usefulness and efficacy as
something that can be taken seriously as a way to God.
There are constant battles going on about Twitchell's plagiarism and
his overactive imagination that has brought his little program into
the 21st century. A new light is perpetuated by the man Harold Klemp
who has drastically altered the approach of Eckankar from the original
intent of its first Master..Twitchell.
If Paul were alive today, he would probably think twice about
sticking his neck out about describing the physical characteristics of
his cadre of Masters like Rebazar Tarzs.
I know that Eckists have the same fears and maladies that every else
on Earth face. Eckankar has not changed that aspect of their life one
iota. It is the viewpoint or perspective of Eckists on a.r.e. from
which they speak that rouses my suspicions that the formula doesn't
work like it was intended.
If The "Eck" was so real, powerful, unspeakably beautiful and
truthful as it had claimed to be with Twitch at the helm, there would
not be such a thing as a.r.e.
But there is....and it is populated by several souls who feel a need
to defend it. This defense is nothing more than a lame attempt at
setting the record straight for new members no matter what the price
paid by assasinating detractor's character.
I maintain that being an Eckist, Mormon, or whatever, and feeling SO
impartial and devoted to the path, evokes the response that they want
others so desperately to see it their way.
Getting back to humor and skepticism.
Being involved in Eckankar is like standing on a whale....fishing for
It is after all a formulaic and all too enterprising approach to God.
I look back at the multitude of books written by Twitch (of which only
one is still available...Stranger By The River)and see now what they
call evolution but in reality is restructuring and a desperate move
away from the imaginative mind of the 60's.
I can't help but feel a deep pity for the folks who buy into this crap
yet I feel no remorse for poking fun at the relentless absurdities
they profess as elements of their faith....Rebazar Tarzs, the city of
Retz on Venus, Harold's Hulda Clark Zapper, The Airport Incident, the
pseudo-mystical barrage of idiocies that run rampant through the
teachings. This of course is the side of Eckankar that they would
rather forget but is nonetheless laid in stone as their true
beginnings and hidden from the newcomers.
Eckankar is, after all, a very funny religion. Funny because it is
fiction taken as fact. It is lies taken as truth. It claims to be the
most perfect path to God yet takes you to the end of the tunnel where
the white light is........ just that, the end of the tunnel.
I find great pleasure in throwing the theology back in the face of
serious and contentious upstart fundies. I love to make fun of the
utter absurdities they call truth.
Life is not perfect....and I am just here for a while to assure
Just had to laugh at the recent a.r.e. exchange between Lurk and
Gruntie. It is a perfect example of how Eckists just simply refuse to
answer a direct question. It's like trying to teach a pig how to sing.
It frustrates the teacher (Lurk)....and annoys the pig (cher}.
>History is written by the powerful and the winners. They write it
to promote their point of
That's a blanket statement which requires some more exposition. Maybe
SOME history is written that way such as...dare I say..... ECKANKAR!!

True, Eckankar IS far from the popular view, but it is also not
significant enough to be considered historical. It was written by one
little man for profit...not to present the world with THE TRUTH.

Yes, and Twitchell found so much value in HIS sources, he rewrote them
word for word.
>you are concerned about historical accuracy you've either got to
have a lifespan of several
>thousand years to prove it,
Wrong again Garcia, I didn't live during the Holocaust yet I know it
happened due to overwhelming evidence. Everything Twitch teaches is so
vague and subjective...it is arguably false!!!
Look at the sources Paul...How many times do you have to bitch slapped
with the lies of your leaders Klemp, Gross, Twitchell, and all those
little demons running around on the various planes before you can form
one single rational thought you can honestly call your own???? Read

I have no patience with long-winded pseudo-intellects like you who try
to fill up a page with subjective nonsensical judgements about
historicity and its validity. This whole newsgroup is a farce and

All those who believe in psychokinesis raise my hand.
I almost had a Eckist girlfriend who could bilocate, but she left me
before we met.
Join Eckankar, meet interesting people, brainwash them.
Eckists used to have an open mind but their brains kept falling out.
For Twitch: To steal ideas from one person is plagiarism; to steal
from many is research.

relationship with an incredibly awesome & beautiful beyond words
**albino** deer! Tonight I was roughly 6-8 feet from it, and it
looked curious & interested as I talked to it, silly things like "I
love you" and "You are *so* beautiful!!" It's all white except for
the ears, and a stripe between the eyes and down the nose...
I am sure that eventually, it will be eating out of my hand!!
It's a young one...born last spring, so I guess it's almost a year
old...it's always with its mother, and sometimes with another one or
two adult deer...
The funny thing is, when they have a choice, the deer eat junk food!
Seriously!!! Tonight, they didn't touch the apples but they
*totally* wiped out the stale banana nut muffins!! But what they
*really* like are reduced "stale" donuts from Walmart!!
The turkeys did a pretty good job cleaning up the old chow mein
noodles I found in a bottom drawer... <ggg>
It was pretty funny, I figured Noodle would try to "make friends"
with them, as he's always done with critters & people. But he just
stands at a distance, barking at them. I don't know if Paws has seem
Love & Hugs!!

>> Stranger by the River - Paul Twitchell
Destroying all in its path? I believe the word "changing all in its
path" would get the message across much better, don't you?
Destroying doesn't work for me because I am not a blind cult puppy
who adores everything Eck Masters say, do, eat, sleep and shit.
For all the damned books, magazines, and newspapers that Twitchell
purportedly read in his lifetime, the damned fool should have learned
how to write decent prose. Not only is Stranger By The River" such a
usual piece of Paul-shit, but the "Ye Olde English" language of King
James just slays me! In one book (Fart Country), Old Reb is poking
his finger into Paul's chest, barking like an old dog in the
wilderness, and the next thing you know, he's talking like
Shakespeare by a river in India.
I suppose it was after all just a ploy to give Christians a "heads
up" that even Eckankar can be thy way to thine Creator!!<ROFLMAO>
