      Hi, All!

      Since Prometheus' post on The Wisdom Notes June 2007
      got side-tracked with the other discussion that Zoey
      brought to the forefront regarding Klemp's poor
      family relationships and his hiding his past, I thought
      I'd bring this more current topic back to the front page
      for more discussion. It seems to me that what Klemp is saying
      and writing now is of the upmost importance. I also find
      it really interesting how Klemp wants to stop chelas,
      especially the lower initiates from spending what he
      considers too much time exploring the Internet! I have to
      ask why he is bothered by this now??? What is going on
      in his world, that of eckankar, that he is compelled to
      put these alarms and concerns out there? Of course,
      from my perspective, it would seem that sites like
      ESA and other anti-eck groups might be bothering him???
      Are the anti-eckankar discussions having an impact on the
      growth of eckankar?? I can only hope so! : )

      BTW, Zoey, since you are so interested in the past
      events in eckankar, I was wondering if what is currently
      taking place concerns/interests you. For instance, what
      do you think about the Wisdom Notes topic? Also, I really
      would like to know more about your eck experience when
      you have the chance. I had asked you in my previous post:

      "you might have already posted about your eck experience on here
      or another site, but would you mind refreshing us? How many years
      you were a member and your level of participation? How long you
      have been out and why you dropped out? Just curious. Thanks!"

      Anyway, I hope we can start some good discussions about the
      impact that the Internet is having on eckankar and its
      leadership, namely, Klemp as he continues to hold on to the power!
