Re: HK: On the Road in a Broken Car
- Hi Mish & Liz,
You both make some good points about Klemp's instability.
I find it interesting reading HK's Autobiography where he
calls himself a "Modern Prophet" and that he changes his story
about why he first went to the Lutheran School/Seminary.
HK: "But the stranger's doubtful gaze made me review that
position. So I made a quick run-through of the memory track
and came up with the reason, a trite and petty one: it was
actually because my cousin, for years the only other person
in my grade-school class, was going to be a minister. That
meant he was going to leave home for church school in the
city. How unthinkable to break up our long friendship just
because of that. So I decided to enroll there too." [pgs.4-5]
On pages 2-3 Klemp states: "Five years ago, at age thirteen,
I decided to be a minister... the preministerial school offered
a better, all-around education for my future mission as the
Mahanta, the Living ECK Master--the inner and outer spiritual
guide for many--than did our country high school."
It seems one side of Klemp is more truthful and in touch with
reality than his other (KAL) side which is more imaginative and
delusional via a Messiah/God complex. Unfortunately, the positive
and more truthful side of Klemp seems to have become more
surpressed over the years, due to Klemp acting 'as if' he (Paul's
Mahanta Con) was the greatest consciousness known to mankind.
ON ANOTHER NOTE: Didn't Klemp screw up when he created the
Astral Library explanation (hoax)? Sure, except ECKists don't see
it. How can Seminar or Book topics be kept in the Astral Library
on the Astral (emotional) Plane? These should be in the MENTAL
(Plane) LIBRARY! The Lower Astral Vibrational Rate would NOT
allow these finer vibrational thoughts and concepts, of the Mental
Plane, to be "stored" in an Astral Library system. Really, think about
it. It's not like these Astral Plane Manuscripts are stored as they
are on the Physical Plane! It just doesn't work this way, and most
ECKists when giving this some thought will understand that's HK
made it all up. Apparently HK doesn't want to use the Catch-22
rule all of the time or else someone might wise up and see it!

"After lunch the manager gave us some bad news. The brake job in
Las Vegas a week earlier had been done wrong. The repair would cost
exactly the amount of rent money in my pocket. But even one brief
meeting with my new landlady had convinced me she was an unbending
individual. A hard case, especially when it came to tenants with bad-
luck stories instead of cash on rent day. She was renting the place
for profit, not charity.
>So I knew the money in my wallet had better be in her hands come
nightfall, or my wife and I could look for another home. I was torn.
It seemed the rent money was on a trading block. The side with the
best argument would get the jackpot. The mechanic wanted the money
and only needed my OK to proceed with the repairs. But our dour
landlady had been promised the money for rent the night we arrived.
>Choices in life sometimes appear to be no choice at all. This was
such a time. Common sense said, `Fix the brakes! Live moment to
moment. What good is money if you have a wreck?' My next paycheck
was a week away, and no more rent money would be forthcoming before
"The service-station crew watched in disbelief as we climbed into
the car to continue our journey. The backseat was packed right up to
the ceiling. The console between the front seats was jammed full of
odds and ends, and the floor on my wife's side had food and drinks
for the road. The car was snug, like the cockpit of a jet fighter
and just as lethal.

>Think you cannot stop from harming yourself. Hear voices.
Want to commit suicide, or you know someone who has mentioned
wanting to commit suicide.
Warning signs of suicide include:
>Use of illegal drugs or drinking alcohol heavily.
Talking, writing, or drawing about death, including writing suicide
notes and speaking of items that can cause physical harm, such as
pills, guns, or knives.
Spending long periods of time alone.
Giving away possessions.
Aggressive behavior or suddenly appearing calm.
The first treatment for bipolar disorder often happens in
the "acute" phase, when a person may have his or her first manic
episode. In the acute phase, you may be suicidal, psychotic, or
using such poor judgment that you are in danger of harming yourself.
Your doctor may decide you should be hospitalized for your own
safety, especially if he or she believes you are suicidal.

also check himself out, thought he had outsmarted the doctors and
hospital staff? Classic sign of Bipolar! Or maybe Klemp has
>What is schizophrenia?
Schizophrenia is a severe brain disease that interferes with normal
brain and mental functionit can trigger hallucinations, delusions,
paranoia, and significant lack of motivation. Without treatment,
schizophrenia affects the ability to think clearly, manage emotions,
and interact appropriately with other people. It is often disabling
and can profoundly affect all areas of your life (for example,
becoming unable to work or go to school). Being told that you or
someone you love has schizophrenia can be frightening or even
devastating. The best way to improve your quality of life with
schizophrenia is to learn as much as you can about this condition
and then adhere to the recommended treatment.
>There are several types of schizophrenia, and the specific types are
diagnosed based upon symptoms. The most common type is paranoid
schizophrenia, which causes fearful thoughts and hearing threatening
>Schizophrenia does not involve multiple personalities and is not the
same condition as dissociative identity disorder (also called
multiple personality disorder or split personality).
Hallucinations. These usually involve hearing voices, but they can
involve all the sensesseeing, tasting, touching, hearing, or
smelling something that is not there.
Delusions. These are firmly held but false beliefs. Some common
experiences include thinking you are the President of the United
States, or that you are being persecuted or chased by the CIA or by
Disordered (confused) thinking and speech that does not make any
sense. Examples include abruptly responding to questions, not being
able to respond with enough information, or always giving a one-word
reply to questions.
Bizarre or disorganized behavior. Usually the behavior involves
being overly excited, angry, or unresponsive to other people. It may
also include bizarre body movements, such as rocking back and forth
or grimacing repeatedly.
Self-neglect, such as becoming isolated from other people, wearing
dirty clothes, or neglecting living space until it becomes untidy or
Inappropriate emotions, such as smiling when speaking of sad topics
or laughing for no reason.
Negative symptoms (such as lack of emotion or motivation), which may
appear suddenly or slowly over time
Poor hygiene, such as wearing dirty clothes or not bathing
Loss of interest in school or work
Outbursts of anger
Unusual or out-of-character behavior
Confusion or confused speech
Terror or unreasonable fear of something or someone
Active or acute phase
Positive symptoms (such as hallucinations or confused thinking or
speaking) may appear either suddenly or slowly over time.
Negative symptoms may also continue to occur during this phase.
During the active or acute phase of schizophrenia, symptoms may
fluctuate between episodes of severe positive symptoms and periods
of stabilized symptoms (remission). A person usually develops a
unique pattern of illness within the first 5 to 10 years of the
active phase of schizophrenia.
Positive symptoms tend to become less intense. You may regain
some social and job skills. The disease may become easier to manage,
although people in this phase of schizophrenia may not fully recover
from its effects on the quality of their lives.
While the positive symptoms may become less intense as the disease
progresses, the negative symptoms (such as lack of emotional response)
may get worse. Even with treatment, up to 40% of people with schizophrenia
will relapse within 2 years; but without treatment, up to 80% will have a relapse.
>Knowing how to recognize the first signs of relapse, such as social
withdrawal, may help you get early treatment, which may help you
recover more quickly.
>Up to 30% of people with schizophrenia attempt suicide, and between
4% and 10% will die by suicide. Continuous treatment is important.
People with schizophrenia are also at risk for other problems, such
as violence and polydipsia (drinking so much water that it leads to
>Recovery rates vary between 29% and 83%, and about 20% to 30% of
people with schizophrenia deteriorate rather than recover from
symptoms even with treatment.
>People with schizophrenia are likely to develop other social and
physical conditions (such as homelessness) or have additional
disorders (such as substance abuse and depression).
>Call 911 or a mental health emergency service if you (or someone you
care about with schizophrenia):
>Have thoughts of suicide or are threatening suicide.
Hear voices, especially if the voice tells you to hurt yourself or
someone else, or to do something illegal such as destroy property or
>Call a health professional if you (or someone you know):
>Have a sudden change in behavior, such as refusing to eat because
you think someone has poisoned your food.
Have experiences you usually do not have (such as hearing someone
calling your name when no one is there).
Have difficulty taking care of yourself or become confused doing
simple chores or tasks.
Show warning signs of suicide, such as talking about death or
spending long periods of time alone.
Show signs of schizophrenia, such as seeming to talk to people who
are not present or believing things that you know are false.
Show the first signs of relapse, such as difficulty concentrating or
withdrawing from other people.
