A repost from eckankartruth on the fictional Rebazar!
Eckists want to see Rebazar and that's why they do, BUT never on the physical Plane! Why is it that a Master over 500 years old, in the same physical body, has never been seen in the physical? The answer is that Rebazar is actually Twitchell's former Radhasoami master (Kirpal Singh) and that Twitchell made much of it all up!
Also, Twitchell's original descriptions of Yaubl and Fubbi don't match the drawings Klemp promotes, therefore, Eckists only see these Eck Masters appearing as they are drawn and described by Klemp and Not by Twitchell! This is more proof that these, and all, Eck Masters are phoney creations of a religious scam!
However, why do people see "masters" or angels, etc. and even see them prior to seeing the drawings or pictures of them? There are many answers to this phenomenon and some are psychological and some are
spiritual. Also, this phenomenon is Not limited to Eckankar or even to religion per se. However, a strong belief and focus by the mind will influence (and distort) one's reality.
The physicalogical/psychological reasons for these paranormal
visitations or visions can be extremely varied and depends upon the individual's mental health or lack of. It is a sliding scale that has many facets including diet, sleep, and stress! And, just look at Klemp's meeting with the two "eck masters" on the bridge before his leap!
Another explanation for these experiences (of visions and
vistations) is that Soul is using the mind for communication with Itself! Soul will use whatever means (images and belief) available and accepted by the mind. And, since Soul is Not limited by time or space this is why some "inner" experiences can take place before the actual physical event. Anyway, it's an interesting topic, BUT Eckists are really delusional and ego bound if they
believe that this is a phenomenon exclusive to Eckankar, that it gives validity to the Eck teachings, or that it makes them unique or superior.
didn't I hear somewhere that Rebazar's portrait was based on Burt Reynolds?
LOL well you heard correctly. Apparently Diana Stanley had a crush on Burt and made Rubber Tires in his image, among others, her own brother (according to him) is one of the Masters too....
