Soul's Personal Resurrection is Denied by Religion
- ECKists need the LEM's promises of a Mahanta
(the highest "Inner" Master) to stimulate their
imaginations and dogmatic beliefs. The masses
of other religious followers need their own
structured imaginations and dogmatic beliefs
via Catch-22 methods as well! The Religious
Leaders of the World (including Eckankar's)
have always taken an arrogant self-serving
attitude and have looked down upon the
consciousness of their ignorant, gullible,
and fearful followers.
And, like most other religious followers EK Chelas,
also, need to have their Holy Scriptures explained
and interpreted for them... regardless of initiation
level! Still, HK's explanations are so generalized it
requires most chelas to Second Guess their Mahanta
and to put their own words into his mouth! Imagination
(versus reality) is key within Eckankar.
In Eckankar there used to be promises of Self and
God-Realization (Self-Mastery & Spiritual Liberation)
in THIS LIFETIME, however, Now this too has "Changed"
and Not for the better! Now, the highest level an ECKist
can reach is "Spiritual-Realization!" This is a New Stage/
Level Klemp explained in the March 2008 H.I. Letter.
However, Klemp earlier gave a veiled warning by stating,
"Change is Change!"
Therefore, now, it is impossible for 99.999% of EK Higher
Initiates to reach God/Sugmad-Realization in this lifetime!
[Not that those phony initiations helped anyone, especially,
Klemp to reach a "Higher" Consciousness!]
The 12th Initiation (for God-Realization) is just a delusional,
arrogant, and meaningless hierarchical/organizational ranking.
When Twitchell first created Eckankar around 1965
he knew that people needed a Saviour, and that's
what PT created via his own narcissism. Other, main
stream, religions use a more indirect use of "divine"
authority. Still, the results are basically the same as
the original dogma and myth becomes edited and
reinterpreted and dumbed down to fit the lower mass
consciousness. However, even the upper level clerics
in Eckankar have become like their Christian counter-
parts as "glorified" sales people (missionaries).
However, can a Truth Seeker or EK Vahana (missionary)
have a clear conscience in telling others that Soul "can"
achieve Self and God-Realization, as well as, Spiritual
Freedom and Self-Mastery in this lifetime via Eckankar?!
Isn't this being dishonest? Or, is the Catch-22 in the
phrasing of the propaganda by saying Soul "can" achieve
this... by becoming a 12th Initiate or LEM in "this" lifetime!
This is the Catch-22 that Klemp has now implemented
in order to keep his servants that have "surrendered"
their common sense to him via their hopes & imaginations!
I'm not a Christian, however, Jesus' original message
(from what little has survived the editors) did seem to
indicate that everyone could reach the Kingdom of
Heaven (in their current lifetime) and have a personal/private
relationship with the "I AM."
People/Souls Did Not need an intermediary or middleman
or Mahanta or whatever! This is what Jesus was showing
them and (IMO) he was Not saying that it had to be through
him or that they needed a "religious" dogmatic belief with
rules and laws or that praying to him (for anything and
everything) was going to help them any.
God-Realization is something that an Advanced Soul can
discover on their own. Most EK Higher Initiates have enough
experience and enough spiritual tools in their tool box to
cut the Strings of Attachment from their EK religion and the
dogma and rules and guidelines. H.I.s have put in their time
and coin and it's now time for them to move on to Self-Mastery
and Spiritual Freedom.
Those Souls (chelas) who still need their religion are simply
Not ready... it's not that they are being martyrs and sacrificing
through service and surrender and staying on to spread the
word... well some are! They've done that for years and years!
They just can't let go (out of fear and pride) to those superficial
friendships, the power, and those initiation numbers... they're
So, let me ask the ECKists:
What was it that made you unhappy with your previous religion?
How long did you think it would take to reach Self and God-
Realization... in this lifetime?
Did you consider yourself a rebel, a non-conformist, or a
skeptic, and/or a Truth Seeker that wanted a "Spiritual Path"
versus a religion?
How has Eckankar changed?
How have you changed?
Is it time for another change... for you?
Actually, one of Eckankar's attractions, for me, was that it
had been first promoted as a "Spiritual Path" etc., etc. and
Not as another fake religion! But, I had no idea (and there
were no promises) of How Long it would take to reach God-
Realization. Still, there were promises of having glimpses
into God-Realization, until, one achieved it In This Lifetime!
Then again, Klemp gave the downside to God-Realization
with his public confession of jumping off a bridge and stripping
at an airport and being locked-up in a mental institution until
he learned how to 'play the game' so that ECKists would actually
Fear even having even a Temporary God-Realization experience.
Thereby, many ECKists consciously and unconsciously Do Not
really want to have similar negative "God-Realization" experiences
the way HK had.
It all comes down to believing in what someone else is preaching.
Why are they are preaching it, and by what "authority" (power &
knowledge, earned or inherited) do they have in order to make
their claims? For some reason most people like to worship and
place their trust in certain other people, and to create and place
these icons upon pedestals.
Perhaps most people admire, in others, traits that they lack in
themselves... such as; intellect, looks, power, wealth, bravery,
or holiness (spirituality).
How long does it take before these Long-time EK Higher
Initiates can stand on their own spiritual feet? Most will
never stand on their own... they are attached at the hip to
the promises of the EK dogma, to the words and lies of Klemp,
and to the Fear and Responsibilities of being Free... it's ego!
Klemp (the LEM/Mahanta) has denied Soul's Personal Resurrection
and Self-Mastery, as well as, Soul's greater hopes for this Lifetime
by stating (basically) that 99.999% of ECKists can only hope for
"Spiritual-Realization" versus God/Sugmad-Realization. ECKists
have to be a 12th Initiate (according to Klemp in the March 2008
H.I. Letter) to reach God-Realization.
This is just more proof that Eckankar (and religion in general)
is a KAL test for the Advanced Soul. If one can see through
the lies and the distortions of truth (half-truths) Soul then
has the knowledge to make life changing choices toward
Truth and Freedom by becoming one with Soul and Spirit!
There are some things that one (Soul) can learn from others,
but this doesn't require one to join a group or to sign up for
a required "annual" membership with others who will never
be able to leave their security blankets or egos behind.
Membership in Eckankar, or in any religion, is Not required
of the Advanced Soul... this is a given that has been forgotten!
