Re: Eck Master Artist Diana Stanley
- Hi Liz,
Thanks for this info on Diana Stanley. I was wondering when she left
Eckankar. From looking at the 2002 date on the email to Colleen and
Diana mentioning that it had been 20 years that she had left
Eckankar and was 26 when she joined I did the math. Diana was born
in 1942 and that makes her the same age as Klemp. Also, she joined
Eckankar in 1968 and stayed for 14 years until 1982. Klemp started
the Eck discourses from Japan in 1967 and got his 2nd Initiation in
Oct. 1969. I think Gross joined in 1969 and got his 5th via Gail and
the Eckankar Board at either the end of September or early October
of 1971 but prior to October 22, 1971. On October 22 (Paul's
birthday) D.G. magically became a 14th Initiate! The rest is
history, or was until Klemp erased it!
BTW- How is it that October 22 (Twitchell's birthday) was chosen by
the Vairagi Eck Masters to pass the Rod of ECK Power to the new
LEM/Mahanta? If the excuse is that Twit chose to be born on that
infamous day then why didn't Klemp? Or, is it an Eck-Vidya thing?
Say, when is Klemp's birthday? We Know that Twitchell's is
10/22/1908 so why is Klemp hiding this info? Is he afraid of
Hey Etznab, good to read you here ;-)
Forwarding a message that is out in cyber land that may answer your
questions? At one time 'Execkankar'was a yahoo group until Colleen
shut it down about 1 1/2 - 2 years ago? I belonged to the group at
one point. Diana herself stopped posting, but her brother would
communicate and answer questions. It was shared that when she was
approached by Paul to paint a picture of the Eck Master Reb Tires,
she claimed to have painted him in the likeness of a crush she had
on Burt Reynolds the actor. As well, she painted another master in
the likeness of her brother. Sharon from ET may have better
information on this topic?
On a different note, though somewhat related, I noticed over on
Darwin's official ATOM web site that he has a few of the Eck Master
drawings posted. Wonder what has changed to allow him that
privilege? Below is the post from Diana, and I am including a few
interesting web links.

Colleen thank you for your kind works. I guess just quitting the list
with out much input wasn't apporpert. I will tell a little bit about
my personal xperiences in Eckankar.
I will start by saying like many people who were raised in a
dysfunction family I was drawn to an organization that basically
mirrored my birth family. The first few years in Eck were wonderful.
I had been severely abused as a kid. I felt safe for the first time
in my life. I had loving wonderful friends and we were all on a
Spiritual journey home. I believe it saved my life from suicide and
from other family stuff. That is what I meant when I said It saved
my life. The other part of the quote was and it nearly killed me is
the part that I have to be careful of talking about. I had natural
empathic abilities and could trance out into a different realms
very easily, everyone has this ability some more talented in than
others like anything else. The death knell began to ring when They
discovered I was an artist. It began before Paul died. He wanted me
to do a sculpture of him sitting on a stool and talking.
The funny thing ibis thee stature turned out great I had done it in
clay and was going to have a mold of it. So they could sell them. A
couple of days latter Helen Baiird came into my room and told she had
just been told Paul had died of a heart attack. and died. I looked
at the sculpture of Paul I had done and it had shattered and crumble
during thee night. So Paul never got his icon made..
These people were not dummies. here they had an artist that was an
empathic who was totally hypnotized by Paul's work. and believed
everything. I was the missing link to bringing reality to all Paul
fictiouus Eck masters. I painted them, people could see what they
looked like, they were real now. How could I paint what was in pauls
or Darwin's imagined? I was an empath, I was able to tune into them
beliefs on how pauls caratures looked. So that was that. They used
me at every opportunity tot use my work to paint book covers and
even a comic book on the Tigers fang My awareness of what a cesspool
eckankar was came into my awareness when I went to work at Menlo
Park. The slow insidious knowledge was getting harder and harder to
ignore. I was too involved with Darwin and Gail on a personal level.
I saw things and watched with gowning horror as I watched my
beloved eckkankar turn into an exact replica of my birth family.
when I family left 20 years ago I moved to a new city. I resigned
my member ship to eck and stayed drunk for 2 years literally. Then
my destiny took down the next road in my Spiritual quest. I don't
regret having been an eckist it was what I needed at the time, It
was the love and support of thee many friends I made, I considered
them brothers and sisters and to this day I still am in contract
with many. I joined eckkankar when I was 26 now I am 60. now I
consider myself and elder and have a responsibility to due no
harm but share what wisdom I have gained over thee years.
I am always available if any one wants to talk

Am new to this group and this is my first post here. I was wondering
about something. When did Diane Stanley leave Eckankar? Does anyone
know about where I can get more information on this? It has come to
my attention that the color photos of Eck Masters are slated to be
discontinued around mid October of this year (2006).
I have wondered about this - the reason why - and if it has anything
to do with the original artist(s) (one of which, Diane Stanley,
reportedly no longer belongs).
