On Paul Twitchell's "CONSCIOUSNESS FIVE" (1971) Plans:
In Chapter 32, page 323 of Klemp's "Autobiography
For A Modern Prophet" HK mentions that in 1971 the
Fifth ECK World Wide Seminar's theme was....
At first, I though this theme was only the result
of this being the 5th EK World Wide Seminar (EWWS).
However, Klemp states that this is Not the case!
Klemp states, "This seminar PROMISED an UPLIFTMENT
for the ENTIRE MOVEMENT OF ECKANKAR. THIS MEANT
THE HIGH AWARENESS FROM THE FIFTH PLANE, beyond
the realms of cosmic consciousness, Buddha Consciousness,
and the Christ Consciousness of the orthodox religions."
So, for October 1971 Twitchell was promising "Consciousness
Five" and "the High Awareness from the Fifth Plane...
for the Entire Movement of ECKANKAR." What happened?
Well, for one thing, Twitchell died (translated) about
a month prior to the seminar.
Klemp can blame Sri Darwin Gross (1971-1981) for
10 years of Not doing his job, although, DG gave out
a lot more Higher Initiations than Klemp ever did! And,
Darwin did initiate Klemp with at least a 7th, 8th, 9th,
and 12th Initiation! But WHEN did Darwin FALL from GRACE...
1981, '82, '83?
Klemp was never specific on this, and never even gave a
ballpark year! So, when was it?! When did DG Fall?
I do recall something, at a seminar, about Klemp once saying
that the World (as a whole) maybe approaching Consciousness
Three. Or, was that ECKANKAR approaching Con Three?
Anyway, What happened to PT's "CON Five (or more)?" Klemp
has been in-charge for over 25 YEARS with his mini-mastership!
Maybe that's the problem! Klemp is a mini-master because
he doesn't fullfil the SHARIYAT criteria for that of a "real"
LEM/Mahanta (see "Mahanta, birth of" in the Shariyat's index)!
WHEN does Klemp take responsibility 'for those in
his charge'... for his Higher Initiates... or for anything?
WHERE is the Inner Communication? According to EK
Dogma Higher Initiations are EARNED... aren't they?
Therefore, these H.I.s were tested on the Inner Planes
by their Mahanta and demonstrated their greater spiritual
awareness and spiritual abilities (powers, etc.) which
includes being a clear (enough) channel to communicate
on the "INNER" with Klemp.
Except, it doesn't happen does it!! Unless, one imagines
it like other believers in other religions do as a Leap of Faith.
This is where the "Catch-22" ploy comes into play! But,
it's as much the chela's fault as Klemp's fault... for being
EK Chela's really should look at this possibility. WHY does
Klemp always blame the Chela even WHEN the chela is a
Higher Initiate? Catch-22 again! HK's the Top Dog in the
EK Religious Hierarchy and, therefore, it can't be his fault,
unless, he too (like DG) has Fallen From Grace. The reality
is that No Person was ever at that highly of an exulted
"spiritual" position in the first place! It's all talk! There is
no "proof" via dreams, visualizations, or anything else than
what other religious followers/believers experience! The
Mahanta's powers are non-existent... it's mental and
emotional effect (self-hyptnosis) derived from one's
desires and needs.
However, HK was never a highly evolved or "spiritual"
individual... he is a Poser! He has the "ethics" of a
con-man and of a delusional person! That's where
the "act, as if" delusional philosophy of the con-man
or the "play the game" and distorted thinking of a
mentally unstable and unethical person comes into
play. True, HK (as did PT and DG) is giving hope to
people who seem to be social misfits via unorthodox
religious promises to alleviate their fears... This is
because these widely borrowed EK teachings fit in
with the unorthodox personalities of most ECKists.
So, What happened to EK's "Consciousness Five?"
Perception is Reality...
