Thanks for the post. BTW- Much of what
you have mentioned, topic wise etc. has
been discussed here, on ESA, (see the
archives), and there are Links and Files,
also, that show and discuss many of these
subjects as well. However, the main focus
of ESA is to present the real TRUTH behind
this long-going scam by showing how Klemp
positioned himself to inherit it and how
he continues to use Twit's Shariyats to
continue the lies, myth, and the belief
systems (fear and faith) that all religions
use. - P.
I my self am doing similar in studying back
over the shariyat's to see how much of these
two 'sacred books' is plagarised aswell as giving
me a starting point in finding Twitchell's sources.
But just a tip.. there are websites dedicated to the
vast plagarisms Twitchell made..it's nothing new
at this stage,everyone but those in denial know
he is perhaps one of the biggest plagarists ever.
Then of course there are the number of books
written on twitchell and if you can get your hands
on copies I'm sure will give you both sides of
the story on this enigma of a man:
The Whole Truth The spiritual Legacy
of Paul Twitchell by Doug Marman
P: *[FYI-Marman admits his book does
not actually contain "the whole truth"
and that much is just a rehash of his
previous opinions and speculations]
The Rosetta Stone of God by James Davis
P: [James Davis, is a former EKist who has
denounced Klemp and his own book about
his "Mahanta" experiences. ]
Confessions of a God Seeker by Ford Johnson
P: [Ford is a former RESA, 7th initiate, and
spokesperson for ECKankar just like those
who took his place]
The ever noctorious David Lane also, maybe
though the above books have helped move
on from some of his theories and material,
but his stuff isn't bad to help start some where.
He has a site with all the chapters of his infamous
book on Eck and Twitchell available on his site,
just type his name in and you'll find it.
P: *[David started the ball rolling]
Even Ford Johnson is being attacked as wanting
to start a new cult (just look at some of the reviews
of his book on Amazon), though I honestly believe
he has good intentions of giving a place for ex-eckists
to go in a sense to regroup energies and get back
on focus for one's connection with God.You can join
the Higher Consciousness Society website he has
set up for free and down load some audio's of talks
with others..they' re quite good.
Also this may be worth checking out,this was one
of the first things I seen when I began to doubt eck,
its on you tube the link is
> http://www.youtube. com/watch? v=65ytB-U5ego& feature=related
As you'll come to realize, if you visit her site the
girl in it is married to an another 'eck master'
apparently based on Twitchells original teachings.
the website is
> http://atomdoers. org/Dhunami. html
Dhunami is the name these guys have renamed
of Darwin Gross's ATOM teachings he established
when kicked out of Eck.
P: [They renamed their splinter group (sect) because
Gross didn't name a successor to his ATOM group]
Also as you may know there are a few other off
shoots claiming to be the Godman, even one..
actually can't remember him.. should have book
marked his site on my discoverys, but anyway..
he has his own line of past masters. Another
guy who will mail you intro material is Master
Path by Sri Gary Olsen.
I tell ya I'm sick of it all at this stage, I myself
haven't the cash to purchase any of the books
I've listed above but can't wait soon to get my
hands on'em. I think from what I can judge so
far Johnson's audio talks have given me a good
perspective of where I may be going next. What
really makes his insights for us all stand out are
two things; 1 He explains the fact of belief and 2
in connection with this is the Indian spiritual
master Baba Faqir Chand who confessed that
all the time his students said he was with them
on the inner planes and how they would praise
him for his place in their spiritual development,
he simply said he wasn't the one doing any of it
nor did he have any knowledge of being with the
students on the inner planes...I mean come on
how profound is this.
Though we are on the intellectual level only with
all this talk..it is basic and important though.
I myself have known of eck since 15 yrs old.
I've practised the HU chant all this time and
studied my dreams hard as well as the practice
of the Golden tongue of wisdom. I'm convinced
i've felt the love of God..though haven't denied
or ignored the possible science of the brain that
maybe behind it all. Though I never subscribed
to HK's discourses.. a dear friend of mine a 3rd
initiate always told it was my choice, though
I never felt advanced enough..lol! if I did I should
be probably be a 5th initiate by now!!! i'm 25.
P: [Actually, Jay, it takes about 18 years,
under Klemp, to become a 5th, unless, you're a
professional and then it might be 15 years. However,
you, still, have to read his books and take trainings
(become an Arahata) and be in and teach Satsangs,
do intros, book discussions, etc., etc.]
I am now at a period of intense reading, discovering
and deciding what shall be my spiritual life for the
remainder of my time on this good earth.. :)
Oh.. one last web link I've come across..a sort
of spiritual movement index,pretty useful.
