- Aug 7, 2012I agree with your perception regarding the imaginary greatness. To reveal a personal truth, for me these ideals covered my insecurities allowing me to get out of myself which is a good thing, I think. What good came of it, for me it was the first time that I felt an identification within myself with the idea of being a vehicle for spirit. Post-eck, I am still becoming a vehicle for spirit, but it doesn't have anything to do with HKor other imaginary masters. However, I do feel a Presence at times, that feels higher but is devoid of personality. I think it is a part of myself rather than another person or entity. Freedom.so, it's not all black and white for me, you know what I mean?Good wishes to you!

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 of Non-Interference. But, all this actually meant is that ECKists don't go door-to-door like Mormons and Jehovah Witnesses. Proselytizing means trying to: "proselytize |ˈpräsələˌtīz| 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 his ideas." 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 Fairs. 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. Prometheus
