Re: Eckankar: Youth in Eck Letter of Light January 2006 #1
- Klemp's hypocrisy confuses Eckists and keeps their minds muddled,
distracted, and off balance. On one hand HK says that he is just
like you and me, (Soul?) and on the other hand he claims some
Eckists are losers while pointing out he's the Mahanta (a "special
incarnation of the Sugmad)." If he's just like other Eckists then is
he also like the losers too? I'm always amazed when Klemp, rarely,
admits he has made mistakes and bad decisions. However, he never
gives direct or specific examples, even in hindsight, what these
mistakes and bad decisions were! <sigh>
I'm wondering if Klemp thinks that his non-Eckist daughter and her
husband are losers? I just don't understand this guy giving advice
to young Eckists when he didn't even create a good impression upon
his own child! And, in 1980 when HK became an 8th Initiate under
Gross where was his daughter then and how old was she?! Mish makes a
good point... what are these Eck parents thinking and why aren't
they doing the parenting?!
In order to appear perfect HK cannot sound real! He can't share
anything personal, because then he would reveal that he is flawed
and imperfect just like the rest of us. He has to use other people's
stories and doesn't relate to them with anything personal from his
own life, because that would lower him to the human level. Of
course, once in a while, he slips up and tells something that he
thinks is clever, like sending back a shirt to a store that he wore
a couple of times thinking they could clean it, repackage it and
sell it to someone else. He thought that was pretty funny--but
anyone who knows anything about retailing knows that shirt would
have been discarded by the retailer who would sustain a loss and
debit to the company which in turn would be reflected in higher
costs in merchandise in order to recover that loss, and in the final
analysis WE all then would pay for Harold's returned shirt because
he contributed to the the increase in the price of such goods! LOL!
Why did he return it? Not because it was damaged, rather because he
decided he didn't like it after all. It wasn't very honest of him to
do this--and I can't figure out why he doesn't understand such
things, like how society works! So giving advice to anyone,
especially to children as in this example Prometheus has written
about, is really pathetic and a joke! What are eckists allowing HK
to teach their children? They give up their parental responsiblities
by directing them to a delusional so called master!
These "Questions for the Master" show how deluded HK really is!
FYI: I'll be capitalizing all of HK's "ifs," "ands," and "buts" in
this article and other ones soon to be reviewed. The reason for this
will be made known in the near future.
[Q]: (1) Have you ever made a bad decision? I made a bad decision.
Here's what happened. I have a best friend, and sometimes she gets
mad at me, and I get mad back at her. (2) Is that a bad decision?
(3) How can I make it better? Paige, Age 10
[HK]: "Dear Paige, I've made plenty of bad decisions."
[Me]: Such as what Mr. Klemp? You never seem to share these.
Everything you have ever mentioned was not your fault. You always
blame others. This is why you show no empathy for people. Name one
thing that was a bad decision on your part!
[HK]: "Earth is a garden of sorts, a place for us to learn by
making mistakes AND learning how to correct them."
[Me]: Talk is cheap for Klemp. He never tells us about these
mistakes he has made. Just read his "Autobiography" and you will
see that he always blames or finds fault with others. Little Harold
is never at fault! Klemp had an opportunity in his Autobiography to
add some new insights to this old material and to take
responsibility for his lack of awareness and growing pains. However,
he keeps putting his Master-in-training PR spin on things like
Twitchell did and this prevents him from seeing his humanity and
that of others. So, once more we have contradictions as Klemp
negates previous writings by claiming he has made mistakes. Where
are all of those "bad decisions" mentioned in his writings? I'd like
to read about them!
[HK]: "A real mistake is to keep making the same ones over AND
over again. How come? It means we're not learning. AND it also shows
we've come to a stop in our spiritual life. BUT also know Paige that
it's OK. It happens all the time, to everyone. Yes, to everyone!"
[Me]: Well, it seems that HK is once again implying that even he
the Mahanta makes mistakes "all the time." Why doesn't Klemp ever
share what some of these are? Did Jesus ever make mistakes? Just
[HK]: "Now, about the arguments between you AND your friend. When
such a thing happens, we like to think that the other, not us is at
[Me]: Really! I haven't read anything by Klemp where he admits
that he was at fault for anything ever! Even losing those ping-pong
matches he wrote about were not his fault! Talk about being
a "loser!" LOL! Re-read those stories if you don't believe me!
Really, re-read "Child in the Wilderness," or "Soul Travelers of the
Far Country" or his so-called Autobiography and look for anything
where HK admits he made even one mistake or one bad decision. It's
not there! He talks out of both sides of his mouth at the same time!
[HK]: "BUT is it so? It's hard to be honest with ourselves. Being
honest with ourselves is really a hard decision. The idea, though,
is not to be too hard on ourselves. What's the good in that? So what
[Me]: Doesn't it seem that Klemp got off track some with this
kid's questions. Maybe it's a Freudian thing and Klemp is feeling
kind of guilty and is spilling his guts in his reply to this young
Eckist. Maybe Klemp is actually being, sort of, honest with himself
and is sharing this as a way to seem trustworthy, sincere, sensitive
and very people person like and one of us. Yea, right! LOL! Where
has Klemp shared any story about having trouble being "honest" with
himself! I've only read stories of problems caused by other people!
[HK]: "Open your heart to the ECK AND the Mahanta. Then silently
sing HU. Try not to say another word. Just listen to your friend AND
see how the argument plays out."
[Me]: See how Klemp brainwashes with the Mahanta co-dependency!
Besides, why shouldn't this young Eckist "say another word?" There
has to be some response to her friend! As adults we know that
silence is sometimes used as reprisal to punish another! One cannot
take this advice on face value or literally. This is a ten year old!
My advice for this young person is to do more listening than
talking, to allow her friend to have her opinions, (and for her to
have hers), and to always see her friend as Soul.
