4525Seekers versus Followers
- Mar 1, 2009Yes, PT visiting his sister (Kay-Dee) in Paris, Kentucky
versus Paris, France is a more significant lie than most
ECKists what to admit, or to examine more closely. If
EK chelas realized the greater implications their giddy
laughter might turn into a nervous laughter. You see,
according to Paul, after he met K.D. in "Paris" he then
went to India.
Well, since "Paris, France" was a lie (joke) then it only
makes sense that going to India was too! Thus, there
was never a meeting up with LEM Sudar Singh, or Rebazar
Tarzs. Now most ECKists will say that this "joke" was told
a long time ago way before Twitchell became the Mahanta.
That's not true! Twitchell recounts this story (i.e. lie,
joke) in "Difficulties Of Becoming The Living ECK Master"
The reason why PT's & HK's lies bother some ECKists
and not others is because some a Truth Seekers while
the rest are Religious Followers. I've always been a Seeker
of Truth even before, during and after ECKankar. Those
EKists who close their eyes, ears, and minds are Religious
Followers who need to believe in Myth! These EKists don't
even realize that if a/the "Master" did "appear" to them in
the "physical" that it would be in an Astral Body! And, isn't
it strange that Rebazar and the other ancient EK Masters,
who still have physical bodies, can't manifest for at least
the H.I. Meeting at an EK Seminar! They can only "appear"
on an individual and private basis. They never have and
never will appear to a group of ECKists because it's all
I think that the reason for most ECKists Not hearing or
seeing the Truth is because their egos are too strong and
protective. And, the fact that most people want to believe.
The problem is that we are taught to be followers. We are
inundated with rules at a very early age and are taught to
comply and obey. There are always those authority figures
and experts who know more than we do, at least until we've
become more "educated" and have matured. One has to learn
that there are no absolutes (except for decay of the physical).
Still, what turns a Follower into a Leader? Normally, and more
often than not, it's a combination of charisma, ego, intelligence
and power. What turns a Seeker into a Follower? It's simply
losing one's way and sleep walking through life! And, what
turns a Follower into a Seeker? Perhaps it's realizing that
one has been a Seeker all along!
Etznab and Mishmisha,
I have a little bit more discussion on emotions that I went through
yesterday. They both have to do with when I discovered that Eckankar
was a fraud.
As I was falling asleep last night it occurred to me that another
emotion that came up yesterday was "disappointment." That doesn't
sound like a severe emotion for finding out that your religion was
based on lies, but believe it or not, that came up yesterday too.
Something that didn't come up was "loss of innocence," but that is
another emotion that commonly comes up when someone believes in
something and then the rug is pulled out from under them. I don't
recall whether "loss of innocence" is something that I went through
regarding Eckankar, but I heve been through if for some other things
and that can be a very overpowering emotion to go through.
