- Dec 16, 2005Hi Mish,
It does seem strange that the founder of Eckankar (and modern day
prophet/savior), Paul Twitchell, doesn't have all of his books
available for sale from the religion that he created! Paul must be
spinnibg in his grave, or was he cremated? How disappointed he must
be in little Harry Klemp! All of that Eck donation money for guilted
staircases and such, but none left to reprint the historical
beginnings and wisdom of such an advanced spiritual path! <sigh>
What could be the reasons for Not offering these books? Is it true
that some of the Paul's early writings might Not "fit" perfectly
with today's consciousness? But wouldn't Christians want to read
every word that Jesus had spoken?! Then again, maybe some Christian
leaders wouldn't want every thought and word of Jesus's shared with
the world. What would these leaders fear? That the wisdom wouldn't
apply to the modern world or that people would just be confused by
unfiltered and unedited wisdom. Maybe the thought would be, Why
create more confusion for people? Maybe little Harry is thinking,
Why create more confusion for Eckists? Actually, Klemp is saving
Eckists from the truth about Twitchell, and the scam of Eckankar.
For Eckists, ignorance really is bliss! Besides, little Harry would
be out of a high paying job with great perks if Eckists figured it
all out too soon!
The word "confusing" is the key to keeping eckists in the org.
Everything is kept mysterious and secret which creates the
confusion. The confusion is justified and deemed okay because it is
just part of the teachings. When the chela advances, he will
understand better. Yada, yada! The confusion is just an indication
that the chela has not advanced enough to "know." So, this validates
the quite "normal" confusion which in turn makes the chela feel that
all is right with the teachings in eckankar. The confusion helps to
control those who question. As to Twitchell's books disappearing,
well, truly eckists should wonder why they are not available now. It
would seem that Twitchell's total writings would be of great
interest and important to the present day teachings in eckankar.
Certainly something is "rotten in Denmark!"
