You make some great points and I remember that farm story!

Yes, and I'm thinking that another reason for "writing" all of these
books is due to his vanity (actually Klemp just uses initiate
reports, and embellished stories mailed to the ESC for much of his
material). Early on Klemp just wanted to get into "Who's Who" like
Twitchell, and "writing" all of these books accomplished this!
Eckists should feel just as proud as Klemp does that their savior is
>> One story he tells in both of his autobio-books is the one wherehe was a very young boy and an adult made a joke with other men at
little "Harold's" expense. It embarrassed Harold greatly, and it
seems to this day, he has not gotten over it. He seems to hold a lot
of anger about it. I wonder why he can't reflect on it with
adult "eyes?" Why does he continue to see it negatively instead of
as a positive learning experience. The man just made a funny joke to
create laughter and fun with the group of farmers who were working
together that one day. It was a social thing, and I'm sure the man
did not realize that sensitive little Harold was so offended--and
still is to this day! This anger is definitely a flaw that has been
long standing with Harold, and it explains why as L.E.M. he can so
easily dish it out but can't take it. He demonstrates this angry
behavior in some of his talks and writings (other stories)--and it
also explains why he comes down hard on some of his "miscreant"
followers. It trickles down through the organization, as well, as
H.I. leaders emulate his behavior and mistreat other Eckists: the
silent treatment, shunning, taking away initiations and positions
and so forth.
Yes, this is where little HK was helping in the fields and driving
the tractor. The men took a break and would have a couple of beers.
There would be a lot of small talk and joking around while
introverted, silent, and meek little Harold just watched and
listened, but never participated in the conversations. Anyway, one
of the men had to answer the call of nature and when he returned he
discovered that someone had drunk his beer (this was done with
Harold's knowledge so he knew about the joke). When the farmer
protested to the rest of his peers that someone drank his beer one
man pointed Harold out as the culprit! Everyone laughed and were
having fun with the joke, but Harold didn't and he ran off and hid.
The man who had jokingly blamed Harold sought him out and tried to
console him, but to no avail. The really sad thing about this whole
story is that Harold use to look up to this man prior to this
incident, but now Harold states that he never did like this person
after that and would avoid the man. Harold even mentions in the book
that the man was hurt by this shunning. Another thing that seems to
escape Harold, even today, is that this incident was not only a test
for him, but that it was also a Right of Passage of which Harold
obviously failed. This is just one more example of what has helped
to lead Harold's to his own present day schizophrenic behavior. Just
look at how the loving Mahanta attacked that Temporary Postal Clerk!
