EK Teaches How To Follow a Guru
- In ECKANKAR as with any religion one is either
with them or against them, (i.e. right or wrong)!
ECKANKAR teaches chelas that the use of their minds
is a "bad" thing. But, the truth is, the ECK teachings
can't withstand a critical analysis!
Here are more EK LexiCon quotes by Klemp:
"GURUMUKH. One whose face is always turned to the
Master; a spiritual DEVOTEE. see also Manmukh."
"MANMUKH. ONE of the TWO GROUPS of all MANKIND;
those who follow THEIR OWN MINDS, obeying the mind's
every whim, a slave to it and its passions." [pg. 133]
Two Groups for all Mankind? It's nice of Klemp to simplify
things into a black or white view without any shades of
grey or colours isn't it? This is so typical of any religion
isn't it? We've seen this all before haven't we? Religious
"might and right" is what leads to people being murdered.
Yet, Klemp preaches about "love" (emotion) while using the
Heart Center (chakra) to distract ECKists from these other
narrow minded and manipulative comments that are a large
part, if not a hidden or unspoken part, of ECKANKAR's Dogma.
However, as I see it there is another (THIRD) GROUP. This
group rejects the trappings of both Mind and Religion. This
group DOES Follow Their Own Minds and NOT those impressions
that others try to manipulate us with by any means necessary
nor for their own benefits of ego, money, power, sex, or whatever.
This is the Group that Klemp doesn't want his followers to
know of. Therefore, he creates TWO groups in order to simplify
the choices for EK Chelas to choose from. Pity, that all religions
and despots attempt to shut down the critical thinking and reasoning
or logic centers of their follower's minds. It's no wonder then
that the minds of the "true believers" have atrophied from lack
of use! Thus, it's no wonder Klemp uses the Keep It Simple Stupid
(KISS) technique for his EK talks, books, and articles!
