My Romance with an Eckist, continued
- Re: Lack of integrity
There is good and bad in all of us; however, in some of the eck
teachings there is no distinction between the two, while promoting
instead that we have experiences/karma we have to work off
in this lifetime. In actuality your ex H.I. boyfriend is exempt
from karma which gives him the license to do whatever whenever.
This guy has no self-discipline. Having attained his 6th initiation
must think that he is sooooooooo spiritual and has a free pass. But
once again, this is just further proof of how bogus the eck
and teachings are.
Cheating on you and messing with a prostitute while you were at
your mother's funeral just shows how depraved he is. Doesn't seem
he cared a whitt about you--sorry to say that, but I don't see much
good possibly coming from such a person. And he obviously didn't
care anything about the prostitute, this other Soul, who he used for
his own pleasure. What a jerk and loser. Klemp really should be
calling this slob a big time loser . . . and if Klemp were an all
Mahanta, he'd be taking his initiations away and also booting him
Look what he does to chelas who ask questions about the teachings,
like Graham Forsyth for instance! This is all a joke!
You are so right that eckists are at risk of destroying their souls.
saying there is good in him only enables his bad behavior and makes
excuses for him. Eckists, also, make excuses and rationalize staying
Eckankar for the same kind of reasons. "There is some good behind all
of the B.S., so I only use what I need or what works" they will say.
