1635Re: ECKists Should Not Be Fearful of the Truth About Eckankar
- Sep 7, 2006Hello Pretujari,
You made good points and got me to thinking about myself when I was
a member of The Eckankar School of Unloving Detachment. Eckists are
their own detractors of the Truth. I'm amazed at how they tend to
blame others and hold grudges against people, especially, family
members. Then again, look at the example that they follow! Klemp has
always had problems with his own family relationships, and has
either shunned and avoided them, run away, or blamed family members
for just being human. Klemp decided to go to the 1971 ECK World Wide
Seminar for an Initiation and to see Darwin (his Black Magician
mentor) rather than attend his father's funeral and console his
mother and brothers. Is it any wonder that Eckists today put so much
emphasis on their initiation numbers and so less emphasis on love of
family. Where IS the Love and Empathy? Shouldn't these be the by-
products of the Higher Initiations and Higher Consciousness? Sure!
However, this is also more proof that the initiations and the
Mahanta are bogus and just more of the myth/scam/cult of Twitchell's
joke upon society. However, when one understands the joke it gives
new insights into reality. How many years does it take?
When ECKists begin to realize the Truth about ECKANKAR they will
become Fearful and Anxious and Upset. This is Soul telling them that
something is wrong with their Delusional Belief System. This is part
of the struggle that Soul has with ego and the lower worlds of
illusion in order to take that next step towards Self-Mastery and
Spiritual Freedom. Focusing on our own true Self (without a Mahanta)
will also give us newer perspectives with newer insights and a
lightness of Being. Soul works in Unity with SPIRIT.
At first look being an ECKist did allow one to drop old perspectives
of religion and taught some very different Eastern concepts that
took those consolidated teachings in a new direction for the Western
spiritual student. It opened things up and broadened our views as
would any investigation into something new. However, the original
teachings of Radhasoami(that Twitchell used) were distorted and
flawed to begin with and then Twitchell distorted and revised them
by "twisting facts" even more so! Gross added his own twists and now
Klemp has added his own twists including a Christian like bent. What
does this all mean for the ECKist? Only that it is all a Kal test!
If you can see through the lies and know that those initiations are
bogus and only feed the ego and if you are brave, independent, and
responsible enough to stand on your own two feet, with balance, and
without a Mahanta/Savior/Master/Leader to depend upon one realizes
that this is the real Goal. By doing this you have begun to finally
take that next big step towards Self-Mastery! Think about it!
I agree with you absolutely, Prometheus, that Soul does not need a
Saviour, Master, or Mahanta. I found this out before, during and
after membership in orgs such as Eckankar. GOD or Spirit works and
will work directly with anyone who has the understanding and opens
himself/herself to IT. This is the truth they[self-appointed
leaders] never wish to tell.
Placing oneself under a spiritual authority, like that of guru or
mahanta is agreeing to accept the flow of Spirit through the limits
and confines of, and filtration through the consciouness of another
Soul. And I bet Soul equals Soul.
That this slows down the growth of Soul is undeniable. Especially
when the follower is told not to read, access, or explore anything
outside of what passes through the state of consciousness of the so-
called Godman. In addition, this is not how God intended it IMO.
Soul is to freely explore and grow without any such restrictions.
Given the great expanse of knowledge and information flowing freely
from Creation through the inumerable channels to an individual
compared to restricting oneself to the confines of the state of
consciousness of a single person, I'll choose the former. If sharing
such ideas makes me a 'detractor' to some so be it.
