3556Re: women as eckmasters ...now??
- Jul 3, 2008Hi, Leanne!
I believe it serves Klemp's purpose to bring out the
female eck masters since it will allow him to place Joan
in a position of authority beside him, like co-L.E.M.
After reading his book "Those Wonderful ECK Masters,"
it seems that Klemp is inserting the idea in a somewhat
subtle way that Joan would be elevated to eck master.
However, for the slow learning chela, when reflecting
back to this book, it is obvious that Joan had already
become an eck master, just like Kata Daki. Klemp spins
Joan into some of the stories showing how she is acting
like an eck master--well, the book is interesting to read
when you look for this subtle slight of hand that Klemp
is doing regarding Joan.
Klemp is looking at his age and energy in staying at the
helm of the eck org. He had asserted at one time that he
would hold the leadership position 10 to 20 years, but he
has well exceeded it now. And it doesn't look like he is anytime
soon ready to step down.
In "Those Wonderful ECK Masters," pages 235-236, Klemp
addresses how long he would serve as L.E.M and if any initiates
were in training. He wrote: ". . . a few initiates were indeed
in training for leadership in ECK, but no one was ready yet
to assume the responsibility. It might take several years or
many more for the first one to complete all the tests. Accordingly,
the Master would continue for another cycle as the Mahanta,
the Living ECK Master."
So, H.I.'s and the power players like Peter Skelsky still have
a long wait to become the next chosen one. Quite a contrast
to how long Klemp waited! LOL! But Klemp is still holding on
to the power and seems intent not to let go--and the "another
cycle" would be how long, 12 years?
Klemp needs Joan though because he can't trust sharing the
limelight with anyone else. He most likely fears that he might
suffer the same fate as Darwin--he might have done unto him
what he did to Gross! : )
Klemp paves the way for Joan becoming a female eck master
by giving Kata Daki the same attention he does to the other
eck masters in "Those Wonderful ECK Masters," by devoting
a chapter to each, including a chapter for this female eck master.
Klemp explains that now is the time for the female masters to
appear with this explanation on page 63:
"Before we get too far along, we need to say a word about
the female members of the Vairagi Order. There are precious
few of them in relation to the number of males, and it is for
a good reason. In past ages, and sometimes even today, it
was easier for a male to move about in harsh societies and
environments. So a Soul that had earned the right to incarnate
into a lifetime devoted to the quest for Mastership often chose
a male body. It was simply easier to get around in. That is not
to say the individual's quest for truth was easier. It was not. . . . "
Note that nothing is mentioned here about the Masculine Principle
that was taught in the earlier eck teachings as a prerequisite
in becoming an eck master, or that Vairagi Adepts are only 'just
men.' Klemp is opening the door for female leadership, but of
course, that would be Joan and only Joan. He might even have
reflected back on the messy position in choosing PT's predecessor,
as to how much easier it would have been if Gail had had some
official authority as an eck master instead of using a dream
by a lover and future wife of Darwin Gross as justification! This
brought into question the authority and validity of Gross as LEM
and his authority to pass his title and powers on to Klemp.
So, bringing out female eck masters today fits in with the
continuing conning of the chelas--Klemp is revising the teachings
to suit his specific purposes. He needs Joan to have some legitimate
power in order to help him hold onto the reins of the eck org.
Role and rolling, very funny! : )
