- Jul 17 9:20 AMHi Ingrid,
Actually, the carrot of initiation has many levels for each Eckist.
>>Maharishi and Klemp were just full of hot air. TM's con is tocreate "Heaven on Earth." Klemp's claim is what... to give spiritual
freedom through Eck mastership? But one needs the 10th Initiation
for Eck "Mastership" and that doesn't happen on the physical plane
unless your male and are the Living Eck Master! Promises! Promises!
>Prometheus, I think you have gotten that wrong. ;-) It's notthrough Eck mastership because nobody will ever attain it for HK is
glued to his seat, but the promise is to not have to come back to
this "lower" world full of sh ... but to sit happily on a cloud on
the soul plane or even higher! ;-)) (well, that's a bit simplified,
I know, but what the heck, I couldn't resist this one ;-)) ).
***True, nobody except Klemp (or his male replacements) will ever
attain "Eck mastership." But there are different promises for each
initiation level. With the 2nd thru 4th initiations it's not having
to return to earth for future incarnations. At the 5th it's also
being established on the 5th "Soul" Plane, having past life karma
resolved, and reaching Self or Soul Realization/Consciousness. The
6th and 7th initiations offer Spiritual Realization (and "settler"
positions) and a step closer to the golden carrot of God Realization
(Eck Mastership) and spiritual liberation. However, the more
initiations and years of delusion tends to take its toll on one's
ability to see/think more clearly (without Mahanta dependence).
Eckists on these initiation levels, especially the 7th and 8th, tend
to see themselves on higher "inner" initiation levels too. Actually,
there are many Eckists on even lower initiation levels who see
themselves on "higher inner" initiation levels. Rationalizing is how
the typical Eckist is able to wait those long years inbetween
initiations. And, for those hitting the glass ceiling of the 7th the
ability to rationalize and dream of Eck mastership is of utmost
importance in order to continue the delusion. Eckists are taught to
be co-dependent on the outer/inner "Master," through contradictions
(i.e., self-reliance) and deception (i.e., spiritual freedom and Eck
Mastership). As I pointed out before in regards to the Masters 4
Discourse Lesson 2 on the Nineth Initiation... there are three
stages and the third and final stage to that initiation is
confirmation on the outer! Therefore, wouldn't all initiations have
the same requirements? How then can Eckists think that they
are "higher" than their membership cards indicate? This is the same
kind of delusion that is prevalent, necessary, and required to
follow all of the Eck dogma! Silly isn't it! But, if one doesn't
have anything better to replace it (Eckankar) with then it does give
a false sense of security. It's really too bad that true spiritual
freedom from Twitchell's and Klemp's con is only achieved when one
sees through the deceit, sees real truth and then has the courage to
act on it!
>Eckankar helped us a lot to become deluded ... apart from meetingreally nice people in Eckankar, it was also in Eckankar that I met
the most deluded people.
***True, I met some very nice people and some as deluded as I was! I
also met a lot of social misfits that "hid out" with their higher
initiations. Most Eckists will overlook "quirky behavior" if that
person is an H.I.
>Eckists are often just parroting what they are reading, but theyhave not realized it with themselves. Ah, yes - even some HCS
members are like that. Did you notice that Mario, in his last post,
sounded exactly like HK in his wisdom notes and talks? It really
struck me, and I had to kind of chuckle. ;-))
***Yes, Mario is extremely quirky! I found it interesting that Ford
allows him to post his innuendo's and veiled threats while typically
Not contributing anything of spiritual value or of higher
consciousness. One has to wonder if this is Ford's Archilles heel,
or if something else is taking place. Why is it that B&M can do no
wrong when they are so wrong! What's Ford's game in turning a blind
eye to their misbehavior and the cult/con promotions?
