2152The S.E. Klemp Uses Is Nothing New
- Jan 15, 2007Hi Mish,
This spiritual exercise HK uses is very basic. I was
taught similar ones during my "psychic" stage prior
to Eckankar. Once, I went to a hypnotist doing past
life regressions and the exercises he gave were like
the ones Klemp uses. The key lies in what is mocked
up and in the conscious/unconscious results expected.
This can color the outcome of the S.E. It's, therefore,
very difficult to be neutral. And, the more indoctrinated
one is the more their experiences will be bias.
When doing a type of S.E. one can visualize (when arriving
on the inner Planes) or look down at their shoes to see what
one is wearing or into a mirror to see the image when doing
a past life regression. One can also use the S.E. to mock up
an image of a real "Master" or otherwise. This is just basic
Lower World stuff that almost everyone, including HK, teaches.
I did one (decades ago) where I wanted to talk to Jesus.
I counted myself back (10... 9... 8...etc.) to a very relaxed
state and down from some light and puffy clouds to a beautiful
beach. I decided to walk down the beach (with the sun and
water to my right). Warm water would come in with the tide
and wash over my bare feet as I strolled on.
The breeze felt good and the sun was warm. I came
to a large out-cropping of rock that I had to walk
around in the shallow water. After going to the
other side I noticed an image in the distance walking
towards me. As we walked nearer to one another I
recognized the person to be Jesus. His robe was blowing
in the breeze towards the sand dunes. We stopped and
faced one another.
He gently smiled, we stood there briefly and turned
together to walk (he was between me and the shore). We
seemed to know each others thoughts, but nothing was
said or even thought... we were simply in the moment of
the Here and Now and thoughts were unnecessary. From
another and more distant view I watched as we walked and
saw the impressions our bare feet were making in the wet
sand. We then stopped at the same time and we looked at
one another. He smiled again and then said... He told me
what I needed to hear from a respected source. It was a bit
of Divine Wisdom to help me during this lifetime. He then
repeated it again. I turned and walked back in the direction
of the out-cropping rock around it, along the beach and back
up to the clouds and then fully awoke.
Actually, what was said to me by Jesus or by Soul or by SPIRIT
was something that I had already known on one level of
consciousness. I just needed to hear it from what seemed to be
a Higher source other than my own mind, and that made all the
difference! Still, I later joined ECKANKAR. However, I certainly
wasn't as naive as most ECKists were then and are now. Perhaps
this is what helped me to leave when I finally stopped lying to
myself and making excuses for all of the negativity and broken
promises and nutty behaviours I saw constantly from H.I.s.
The revelations of truth via "Confessions" was what I needed
to kick Klemp to the curb. No more fake master/mahanta for
me... I'm Soul and the real deal. Why pay and trust a middleman
to speak to GOD for you? Besides, Klemp is a poor listener and
an even poorer excuse as a master of anything!
p.s. Looking back on this early OBE/SE it seems that what was
experienced on the beach, to some degree, was similiar to what
was in the movie "Contact."
Yes, Klemp even writes how those who practice the spiritual
exercises diligently can come to believe they are real.
For example on page 117, in "Those Wonderful ECK Masters,"
Klemp offers this to his readers:
"A Spiritual Exercise to Meet Rebazar Tarzs:
Relax in contemplation with eyes shut. Picture yourself
on a beach, walking in sand at the ocean's edge. The warm
waters dance about your feet, and a light ocean spray
splashes a refeshing coolness on your face. Overhead, silent
white gulls sail upon the wind. Now breathe in as the waves
gently wash toward you. Then, on the outgoing breath, sing
Rebazar (REE-bah-zahr) softly in rhythm with the waves fleeing
back to the sea. Do this exercise twenty to thirty minutes a day.
After you're skilled at it, Rebazar or another ECK Master will come
and impart the wisdom of God to you. At first you may feel you
have met Rebazar or one of the ECK Masters only in your
imagination. But with time and practice, you will find they are
real people just like you."
Please note Klemp doesn't say they are legends here, but
that they are "real."
