Re: Is the EK Missionary Circus worth the effort?! :-)
- I just wanted to add a few more comments.
It's not easy for the Klempster to have his rules
of behaviour followed since ECKists are "supposed"
to be both free thinking individuals and Soul.
How then does Klemp get Chelas to worship
and follow "him" without question? Or, does HK
get obedience Via the Fear of Questioning him or
his Guidelines, Teachings, Reasons & Methods?
Why are some things done or seen as they are,
(over Soul's Insights) and Why can't an ECK Leader
be truthful... the Law of Silence?
After all, in Satsang, ECKists are allowed to have or
share different, but Valid experiences and views.
However, these views and insights Do Not always fit-in,
or comply, in context to EK dogma, outside of Satsang!
The real world of the Eckankar Org., on this Physical
Plane, has its limitations with thoughts, words, actions,
matter, and time (the Past and Future). This "time" factor
(and its relevance to higher consciousness) is a Hinderance
with the Lower Planes ECK Religion and with the "spiritual"
publications of Eckankar's!
Chelas' CURRENT Spiritual Insights (regardless of
content) should be more relevant to higher consciousness
(for them) than Lower Mental Plane: Guidelines; Zoas;
Past Seminar Talks; Books and Articles; Past Discourses!
Only those stories from chelas having Generic experiences
and insights within the Limited EK Context (and weighing
their "suck-up status" within the org) are approved and
printed by Klemp.
HK often reenforces and reminds ECKists of the
EK Spiritual Hierarchy (SUGMAD, ECK, Mahanta, ECK
Masters, RESAs, etc.) AND that HK is even the Same
As or One with the "ECK," as well as, being the Mahanta!
Yet, Klemp will often gloss over details and leave out
specifics in his stories and articles. This, of course, leads
to a lot of Assumptions and Second Guessing being made...
which leads to more Confusion. And, this, also, leads to a
lot of "busy work" being done via Trainings and/or Meetings
to clean up the mess (confusion) Harry's made!
But, this is good! It distracts ECKists and sorts out those
who want to become EK Leaders! However, it also discourages
people and has EK chelas doing their own "thing" outside
of the RESA Hierarchy and Guidelines! But, this can be good
in that chelas will spend more of their own money to take
out Newspaper Ads and to rent those ECK Booths at the
Psychic Fairs, etc. instead of relying on Satsang Society
Funding. But, this can be bad because "qualified" chelas
might be hard to find to work the Booth! Chelas should
have updated and current Arahata/Vahana Training, unless,
the RESA is passive or disorganized and has a loosely run
Satsang Society. This is usually the case, unless, the RESA
is very "hands on" and is highly organized, and has the time
to dedicate. Even then, everything will eventually get screwed-
up in one way or another. Another proof.. that Klemp isn't what
he claims to be! There is neither outer or inner communication
or higher consciousness involved. Eckankar is a disorganized
mess and always has been!
BTW- Isn't it a strange phenomena that many ECKists are
LATE for EK trainings, Satsangs, intros, book discussions,
the EWS, etc., etc.? It's Especially strange when H.I.s are
usually listening to ECK Music, or to HK's talks, the HU-CD,
or are HUing themselves while driving to these events!
Why are ECKists STILL, and so often late?! Where's that
"higher" Mahanta Connection? This is just more proof
that it's Not there! It's imaginary! A delusion! ECKists
Need to Wake Up and Smell the Green Tea!
p.s. I was thinking of another strange phenomena with
ECKists. Aren't these seekers usually non-conformists?!
Sure, I still am! Why then is a chela (SOUL) beaten down
and placed in fear and forced to CONFORM with the Rules
and Religious Dogma presented by an imaginary "spiritual"
hierarchy? What ever happened to Spiritual Freedom? It's
all talk and promises as one is brainwashed to value
"initiations" over Truth!
