04/2007 Letter of Light (#1) Questions for the Master...
- Question: "How do you become a Master?
Because if I grow up I might want to be one.
--N.O., age 10, Minnesota
[ME] First, I would question why this young person
said, "IF I grow up" versus WHEN I grow up! It sounds
like he may have a serious medical problem, or has
some psychological problems that may need to be
looked into further.
[HK] "Striving for ECK Mastership is certainly a worthy
Above all, do what you love, and love what you do. That
sounds like the same thing said twice. It's not."
[ME] I'm disappointed with Klemp's response because he
missed an opportunity to turn this well known statement
around like with the Descartes quote of: "I think, therefore,
I am" by making it as Nietzsche or Buddhists would see it
(as well as ECKists) as, "I am, therefore, I think."
Yes, Klemp could have flipped it and said, LOVE WHAT YOU
DO AND, THEREFORE, YOU WILL DO WHAT YOU LOVE, OR
WILL BE DOING WHAT YOU LOVE. Anyway, Klemp's not all
that insightful it would seem!
[HK] "All the things we do won't be of our choosing.
Otherwise, we'd avoid the very things which we need
to do in order to learn some important lessons. There
will be many such occasions.
Then, love what you do.
And do your very best no matter what. A way to tell a
person with a far-advanced state of consciousness is to
notice the way he tries to do everything with excellence
--BUT always with love. No shortcuts! That means learning
[ME] Okay, then! There must be a lot of OCD non-ECKists
with a 'far-advanced state of consciousness' than most
ECKists have! LOL!
Just because a person is an anal-retentive perfectionist does
not mean they have a 'far-advanced state of consciousness!'
That's just a stupid comment! Yes, everyone should attempt
to focus their attention on details and make their best effort,
but Not to feel guilt or shame if they fall short, especially,
for those who suffer from Attention Deficient Disorder (A.D.D.)!
And, who knows, maybe this kid has something wrong with
him to say, 'IF I grow up."
Also, is Klemp really anyone to talk about having 'love' or
'patience?' I'm thinking about those 'loser' comments and that
poor 'fill-in' 3rd Temporary Postal Clerk again! On the other
hand, having love and patience is good advice and Klemp
needs to follow it too!
[HK] "It took me many years to learn patience, BUT the ECK
Masters put me in one situation after another. Finally, over
time, the lessons took hold."
[ME] LOL! What a joke! This is more proof that not only the
ECK Masters don't exist but that Klemp is, also, delusional
and a liar! When had HK completed his last lesson on patience?
One would think that a recluse who had everything done for
him shouldn't have problems with patience.
[HK] "The ideas here will stand you in good stead, whether or
not you decide to try for the ECK Mastership."
[ME] '... will stand you in good stead.' Is this some of Klemp's
"common language" for 10 year olds? LOL! Plus, I thought the
goal of all ECKists was to become ECK Masters because by
doing so one, also, achieves God Realization! Shouldn't Klemp
be encouraging him to strive towards Self and God Realization?
Oh well, maybe someday there will be a new ECKANKAR with a
real Master... NOT! <smile>
