Will HK's Unisex RR Need Change An ECK Virtue?
- The original opposites (Virtues) for the Passion of LUST
were Chastity and Continence.
Is Klemp trying to bring Chastity back with his, "Restrooms
are Unisex" statement? Is he instructing ECKists to act like
or to become eunuchs?
And, is Klemp instructing his Chelas that to achieve the
Virtue of Continence one just needs to view all restrooms
as Unisex and, therefore, this will decrease one's anxiety,
and give one the false impression that their Continence was
maintained after all!
Or, is this just another distraction to hide another physical
ailment of HK's? Maybe it's both a two prong approach
and to prepare ECKists for Joan's promotion like Gail did
for Darwin. But, What about Rebazar... the True 500 year
old, Torchbearer and LEM/Mahanta?
BTW- Is "Dialogues With the Master" still available for sale?
I was looking at my copy of this book by Julian P. Johnson
and was reminded of the source of much of Paul's material
when he created Eckankar. Yes, Eckankar is pretty much
just a Western version of Radha Soami Satsang Beas.
Anyway, here's something I found where Paul Westernized
the Five Passions of the Mind and the Five Virtures. The
Radasoami [R] version, from page 362 of "Path", will be
given then the Eckankar [E] version from page 73 of the
[R] KAM: LUST------------SHIL: CHASTITY; CONTINENCE
[E] KAMA: LUST-----------VIVEKA: DISCRIMINATION
[R] KRODH: ANGER--------KSHAMA: FORGIVENESS; TOLERANCE
[E] KRODHA: ANGER-------KSHAMA: FORGIVENESS; TOLERANCE
[R] LOBH: GREED----------SANTOSHA: CONTENTMENT
[E] LOBHA: GREED---------SANTOSHA: CONTENTMENT
[R] MOH: ATTACHMENT-----VIVEKA: DISCRIMINATION
[E] MOHA: ATTACHMENT-----VAIRAG: DETACHMENT
[R] AHANKAR: EGO; PRIDE----DINTA: HUMILITY
[E] AHANKARA: VANITY------DINTA: HUMILITY
So, as you can see Twitch took "artistic license" and changed one
around. Go to the first Radasoami [R] definition of the "VIRTUE" for
ATTACHMENT which is VIVEKA (DISCRIMINATION) and move it up to
the ECKANKAR "VIRTUE" for LUST. You see, CHASTITY and CONTINENCE
just won't work in the Western world! Paul was somewhat clever with
his lying, but then again he had plenty of practice. And, is it any
wonder why it was always difficult to match up all of the PASSIONS
to their opposite VIRTUES. Now we ALL know why! The puzzle is solved!
