3056ECKists Are Like Other Religious Believers
- Dec 12, 2007Hi Liz and All,
Actually, I still have several friends who are both
HI and LO ECKists! I have Love and Empathy for them.
I understand where they are "coming from." We, usually,
avoid talking about the EK Dogma and HK... mostly.
[They can't handle the Truth... but that's okay!]
Sometimes I will ask them: How did the seminar go?;
How are things going in the local area? They will always
respond and sometimes tell me about the problems
they are having (usually with their vahana mission or
with other ECKists). If anyone has ever read A.R.E.,
HU-Chat, or Chela-Chat it becomes apparent that
there are some very nasty card carrying H.I. ECKists
out there, and they're encouraged and sanctioned by
the ESC, RESA Hierarchy, and both Klemps!
Anyway, I'll sometimes give my ECK friends advice,
words of encouragement, or a positive and different
approach, insights, or a clearer perspective of their
situation. They usually seem somewhat surprised
but are always appreciative that I have been so kind
and understanding towards them. Actually, my kindness
is not all that exceptional. They are nice people who
have just closed or narrowed their minds to that of
a simplistic and limited perspective required of religious
"followers" everywhere. Been there, done that, bought
the tee shirt... literally!
Over the years the restricted dogmatic view has resulted
in emotional, mental and spiritual stagnation for almost
all ECKists! Klemp's "Restrooms Are Unisex" Change is
Change talk, at the 2007 EWWS, represents the tip of the
Anyway, my EK friends know I am no longer an ECKist
and I've told them of Ford Johnson's book "Confessions
of a God Seeker." Of course, they, and most ECKists would
never read "Confessions" out of fear of going against their
Mahanta and a fear of knowing (and acting upon) the Truth.
They will say, "If it's not broke why fix it?" Yet, it is broke!
All religions are broke! ECKists are in denial and are afraid
of losing what little they have. Not to worry though...
there's so much more realized after Eckankar! Soul is
finally free of the middleman Mahanta and of all that
confusing (fake) EK religious dogma, the hierarchy, those
Guidelines, the Law of Silence, the fake initiations, and the
Vahana crap! That's a load off your shoulders... believe me!
ECKists (like other religious believers) will blame
their selves for not being strong enough to handle
the karmic/spiritual testing. In other words, they
experience Guilt and Shame for these shortcomings.
They see the lack of protection by the Master is due
to their lack of faith and belief which results in a
lack of spiritual (higher) consciousness and more
Eventually, most ECKists will rationalize (like people
do) and will tend to believe and imagine that they are
"higher" on the Inner Planes. ECKists are encouraged
to use their imaginations freely! This is just a coping
method (mental medication) that has become a necessary
part of the ECK belief system under Klemp's 25 year (plus)
reign. This is, also, why Klemp pushes the use of imagination.
The Imagination becomes like a drug that ECKists need to
use daily in order to delude themselves into believing
the distortions are of a "higher truth/reality." It's another
case of the blind leading the blind. Eckankar is just another
made up religion with a shortcut to heaven! There is more
out there, but it is for the individual Soul to discover as
It's own Master!
As for Etznab; we here at ESA consider him a friend!
Yep he is an eckists.... Strange isn't it that we would
actually call an eckist friend! ;-)
