6284Re: Why Don't ECKists See the Truth?
- Aug 1, 2012At what point does deception become self-deception and then it becomes what is really just an outright lie. What does it take to lie to yourself? Denial. But denial pays a price at some point. At first there may be some discomfort or even pain. So to deny must involve some level of numbing out, covering up, becoming ever more deluded.
My brother was quite forceful in his attempts to get me involved in eckankar and to be a member. He became quite nasty about it even and still is. Yes, denial is the root of hypocrisy, an attempt to not feel the harm they do to others and to themselves. (and then there are those who are just pathological and do not feeling normal guilt and this does not keep them up at night or if it does it is the fault of their victims somehow)
Truth to them is just TWISTED.

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.
