Eckankar: 03/2006 H.I. Letter ... More Hypocrisy, More Manipulation
- Klemp seems to use the "Principle of the Threes" when he is doing
the manipulating, BUT ignores it otherwise! In the 09/2003 H.I.
Letter HK never gave thought to there being THREE fill-ins or
Temporary Postal Clerks.
In this H.I. Letter Klemp begins with a quote from an unknown
source, "An astute observer once said, 'A man convinced against his
will is of the same opinion still.' Klemp repeats this quote THREE
times in this article.
Klemp also uses "We" eleven times, "Our" six times, "Us" four times,
and "But" four times on just the first page! The word "Change" is
used five times in the article. Klemp wants Eckists to "change" the
way they are presenting the Eck propaganda and Not be so forceful.
[HK]: "A long time ago in ECKANKAR, a number of members were too
much the evangelist. They lacked the spiritual discrimination to
tell who was ready for ECK and who was not. They pushed themselves
upon people. They played on people's goodwill not to be rude in
rebuffing them. I hope this wild spirit of evangelism is on the
wane. There are signs it is... Many ECKists know that a change in
consciousness is not usually an overnight event. When it is
appropriate, they will tell others of the ECK teachings. Otherwise,
they keep still and go about their business. They're living the high
principle of ECK, to let others enjoy their spiritual beliefs."
[Me] Well, it does sounds good, BUT Klemp does tend to contradict
himself doesn't he! No wonder, then, that Eckists are so confused
and kept off balance! However, it now seems that the Klempster wants
Eckists to tone it down some, and turn it (the Eck) down a couple of
notches! LOL! Actually, Klemp makes it sound like "A long time ago"
wasn't on his watch as LEM/Mahanta, BUT it was! Klemp has been the
Mahanta In Charge for 25 years, however, he is just now getting
around to telling his H.I.s to make the "change" and stop with
being "too much the evangelist!" Incredible, the amount of
incompetence and vanity coming from Klemp! BUT, Eckists are only
emulating HK and following the directions or instructions that they
have been given (sometimes through omission) over the past 25 years
by the ESC, the RESAs, and Klemp's writings and guidelines!
Doesn't Klemp ever take responsibility instead of blaming others?! I
have never seen where he has stepped up to the plate and said that
it was his fault for not being a better leader or giving clearer
instructions. Instead it is always someone else's fault. This must
go back to his childhood too. I know that in his earlier (one-sided)
writings of his pre-Eckankar experiences of ping-pong matches or
anything involving work relationships, or whatever, that Klemp never
took responsibility for screwing up! He was always the misunderstood
victim of some whacko. Poor little Harry! This lack of empathy and
his self-centeredness still causes him to be unloving and to play
the blame game with others. Too bad that HK could never look into
the mirror and take his own advice! <smile>
