- Nov 14, 2012Hello Z and All,
Yes, it is my understanding
that he joined the E-cult
[sorry for the reposts]
Was "The Lost Slipper
of Soul" printed by
BTW-It seems that the
"Kip" character is the
alter ego of the author.
So, perhaps, HK isn't
all that impressive
of a "Master/Mahanta"
for this H.I., and I'm
thinking that he no
longer buys into Twit's
plagiarisms and fiction.
IMO, Based upon the
story line, many of us
former long-time EK
leaders could have
written a similar book.
And, one could easily
substitute "Truth Seeker"
for "Karma Seeker," and
"ECKankar" for "League."
FYI: I Googled his
where he gives "Card
Readings" via phone.
So, why would a person
still be an H.I. If he
does Card Readings?
Here's some info on the
book from Amazon.
"What is the true test of spirituality?
Is it loyalty to a master, group, or
teaching? Or is it having the courage
to act on one's deepest convictions,
even in the face of disapproval and
This is the question that confronts
Kip is a karma seekeran individual
committed to testing himself by means
of his own choices. For such people,
who are engaged in an experiment
with unknown forces, there is no way
to prove that they are fit to discover
what they seek except by doing it.
As a young man, Kip joins the League,
one of the burgeoning new age spiritual
groups of the late 1960s and early 1970s.
He learns the fundamentals of its teachings,
which involve cultivating inner experiences
through contemplation, dreams, and out-
The high point of his experience comes
with his initiation into the League's inner
circle, a transcendent event that significantly
alters his view of life. It doesn't take long,
however, before he discovers how fragile
this experience is, and how difficult it is
to hold on to his new state of consciousness.
Kip embarks on a quest that takes him
beyond the confines of the League.
Eventually, he comes to question the
group's claim to exclusivity, and to see
it as merely a portal to a universal spiritual
As he becomes less reliant on the League
and its members for support and guidance,
he is torn between his personal vision of
truth and his fear of spiritual failure. This
puts him on a collision course with the League
President, the group's ultimate spiritual authority.
The Karma Seeker is a far-reaching guidebook
to contemporary spirituality. It presents the
reader with the essential paradigm of the modern
spiritual pathits highs and lows, its rewards
and pitfalls. It illustrates how individuals who
embark on such a path are tested in the areas
of their greatest deficiency in order to build up
their spiritual strength, all so that they may
eventually become active participants in their
own destiny." [end]

enough chap but I think Stefan is still an H.I. I believe he is an H.I. 'on the
fence', so to speak. Many H.I.'s remain in Eckrakorn, hoping that Harry the
Klempster will soon retire or die. Then they can see if they will become the
next LEM or if Harry's replacement is ok, then they will probably continue with
their delusion that Eckrakorn is a true spiritual path and not just the cult it
is. Its tough being an individual and losing all of the friends and acquantences
one encounters in the E-cult. But their true reason for excommunicating a long
time freind is that they really have their doubts about this crap's truth as
well. Besides after being a none E-cultist for a while, I have formed some
significant friendships that really don't give a s**t what my religious views
are. The road is lonely sometimes on one own path, but there are no lies or
delusions. Divine Source loves spiritual renegades, just check out Jesus the
Christ. Enuff said. Peace and chicken grease!
