5750Re: Questions for the Master... Jan/2011 (#3) [Masturbation]
- Apr 12, 2011Hello Diana and All,
Maybe that was the message the
staff got from Darwin, but I don't
recall that there were restrictions
for the rest of us.
Klemp, I don't recall, ever said
anything. Then again, people
tend to hear what they want to
hear... it's selective.
There has always been a lot of
"hooking up" at major seminars
and even at regionals! After all,
it's the ECK philosophy that makes
it okay. It's the "unfinished karma"
Therefore, ECKists feel that it's okay
to resolve their sexual karma without
taking responsibility for the repercussions
because, it is taught, one has to resolve
past life karma in order to move onward
spiritually. Therefore, a laissez-faire
attitude develops and seems prevalent
among ECKists. And, let's not forget,
5ths Initiates, and above, are karma free.
So, for them, there are no restrictions
and anything is okay... they are above
the law of karma! Still, there seems to
be some old fashioned rationalizing that
takes place and the "unresolved karma"
excuse pops its head up once again!
That's why there are so many divorces
and so much dating within Eckankar.
If things had gone differently, for me,
I'd probably be at the ESC and hooked
up with a staffer. Thank goodness that
my karma and spiritual guidance has
been followed as it has, "there but by
the Grace of God go I."

what Darwin said to his male staff that
at seminars to keep their pants zipped.
After the seminar was another matter.
