I think we believed the lies because we simply wanted too. We thought eckankar filled a void in our lives so we chose to believe the rediculous stuff that helped explain away the inconsistances. Then, if you got any sense at all, one day, you just have to face the fact that, it is all quite rediculous and the man in charge isn't anything special and even all the other eckist start to appear to be really lacking in social and spiritual graces. I give thanks everyday that I am not still among the blind. I give thanks that there are others like you that came out of eckankar's web of spiritual death. It would be nice if we could wave a magic wand and have all the still deceived become wide open to the truth about eckankar. We all know it is not going to happen that way. I believe it is a person's ego that keeps them spell bound in eckankar. The belief that they are special and that they are set apart from the rest of the world in their specialness is too much to relinquish. And so they continue to believe that klemp is God made flesh and eckankar is the path to spiritual freedom while they scurry around to do his bidding and give him as much money as they can afford to give. So friends let us consider ourselves the lucky ones. Where once we were among the deceived, we did survive the ordeal and maybe we are all just a bit wiser about con artists and how greed can cause some to inslave others for profit. Bless each and all who did make the journey through the smoke and mirrors of eckankar and can today say it has no more hold on them. And may all of us think of those still with in it's grasp with compassion. Chosing the truth isn't always easy over a life of imaginary greatness.

Date: Tuesday, July 31, 2012, 9:00 PMHello All,
I was thinking about some
of the lies we were told
while in Eckankar and of
how and why we accepted
them so readily.
For instance, there's the
long standing rule that
EKists don't proselytize,
in part, due to the Law
But, all this actually meant
is that ECKists don't go
door-to-door like Mormons
and Jehovah Witnesses.
Proselytizing means trying
verb [ with obj. ]
convert or attempt to convert
(someone) from one religion,
belief, or opinion to another:
the program did have a tremendous
evangelical effect, proselytizing
many | [ no obj. ] : proselytizing
for converts | (as noun proselytizing) :
no amount of proselytizing was
going to change their minds.
• advocate or promote (a belief
or course of action): Davis wanted
to share his concept and proselytize
Leaving books and brochures
in laundromats or bookmarks
in books at libraries and in
bookstores is not following
the Law of Non-Interference.
Neither is having EK Internet
Videos or booths at Psychic
BTW- Let me speak about another
thought. Does Klemp have a sense
of divine intercession? Does he sit
in this Eden Prairie (mahanta) man
cave and HU/pray for the spiritual
evolution of mankind or for world
peace? Many religious leaders and
Maharishis who don't go out and
preach at least pray for intercession.
What does Klemp do except write
trashy books and promote his $$$
religious wares via his volunteer
grass roots sales staff and via the
pros at the ESC.
