- Jun 3, 2012
Thanks to all of you for your stories and comments. Just as scientology has started making the news for it's harassment and bullying of ex scientologist, hopefully it is just a matter of time before eckankar gets some of the same. I hope no ex eckist would take any crap from eckankar on their local, state or corporate level. From what I got when I was in, the org doesn't want negative publicity. So I would think the best defense for harassment from them would be to drag their antics out where the world can see their deceit and lack of integrity. Documented proof is easier today than in times past. Technology today allows you to record and snap pictures on cell phones and other devices that weren't possible a few years before. I hope any person experiencing harassment would document and save. These people seem to lose their heads easily when their egos are threatened so it should be fairly easy to get the goods on them. If they ever start with me that is what I would do. Keep your kool. Let them rant and rave. When you got enough against them, sock it to them in court. Most likely, they will be deserted by their beloved org and end up defending themselves on their own. It might go a long way in showing those still mesmerized by the eckankar zargon what a one sided affair being involved with eckankar is. Anyway, thanks again for the stories and good luck and well wishes to one and all.

Date: Sunday, June 3, 2012, 7:35 AMSooo true, and of course they also claim to do it in the name of ek Love. Talk about disconnect! They also operate from a place of OCD fear, in that the non eckist is like an untouchable. HI's lack any real compassion and are lost in the narcissistic/grandiose sociopathic liar mentality. Most will never change this mindset.

The teaching of the church was (following death) only its members went to 'heaven', all others went to the 'fires of hell'. From there, it was an easy logical step to justify burnings at the stake. The condemned individual was going to the fires of hell anyway, so why not begin the process now for sadistic satisfaction!
> Ditto ekult. An individual who does not display allegience to HK and ekult, will have 'karma' heaped upon them. So, as with 'spanish inquisition' some ekult members justify their harrassment of others and actively work to fastforward this 'karma'.
