Yes, it seems that many people are just more gullible
and needy than others and need someone to look up to!
Maybe that's the way humans are "hard wired" because
throughout time someone had to be the leader of the
group in order for the group to survive.
Religion is just another way for many different people
in smaller groups to form "their" own larger group. And,
the more strength (numbers, power) this group had the
more it could force others to join.
Besides, there were the stars and moon and that curiosity
as to "how" we all got here (on earth) in the first place.
Thus began the unscientific explanations as to how it all
began and this, then, evolved into more complex dogmas.
Some religions use the Adam (Adom) and Eve (Ede) Garden
of Eden Myth (etc.)... including ECKANKAR! ECKists need to
look up "POLARIANS" in Klemp's ECKANKAR Lexicon.
Also, many of these religions use various methods to
manipulate their faithful believers. The Fear of Death and
Pain and of the Unknown is one such method, as well as,
using Guilt and Shame. ECKANKAR just picks up, re-enforces
and alters (Disguises) these old methods where the Chelas'
previous religions left off!
Thus, when Chelas don't have "spiritual" experiences like
visitations from ECK Masters, or an initiation "experience"
or Dreams with the "Master" or "Miracles" and other things
that other Chelas boast (testify) about then they feel Guilt
and Shame. They wonder, What's wrong with me? Or, What
am I doing wrong? Is this my Karma for having done or Not
done something in the past? Maybe I need more initiations
in order to "see" these things clearer? Maybe I need to be
more disciplined and make more of a effort?
However, IF Klemp was the Master of ALL Masters couldn't
he break through any barriers in order to communicate
with his Chelas? Look at JESUS (a second initiate) and his
communication with his Fourth Plane God! [see HK's
Modern Prophet, pg. 385] Jesus was able to preform miracles
and was always in contact with his Master (Father).
Therefore, why can't even EK Third Initiates 2,000 years
later have constant contact with their 14th Plane Mahanta!
So! Who's Fault Is It? It's Klemp's fault! He's a phony,
a fraud, a false prophet, a mini-master, a conman!
Or, is the flaw with EK Chelas for Not having better
imaginations! The mind is very powerful. Can't Chelas
just believe like they did in their previous religions?
It was fun to believe in Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny,
etc. And, it's fun to believe in the ECK Masters and
it makes the believer feel more secure and happy,
especially, if one has SEVEN or more EK initiations!
I think that the real flaw is with ECKists for Not having
better discrimination, common sense, critical thinking
and better insights and understandings of SELF.
If religion has taught us (Soul) anything it is that we
(Soul) don't need any of their (religions) dogmas and
promises or their middlemen!
Only those less advanced Souls NEED to follow and
believe in someone else and the group's dogma!
Soul is It's own Master and is Spiritually Free in this
Here and Now!
