      "Is David Rivinus Patti Simpson's second husband?

      *********

      "[....] Since their marriage in 1983, Patti and
      her husband, David Rivinus, have lived in the
      Los Angeles area. [....]

      [Based on: Hello Friend, A Journey In ECK,
      By Patti Simpson, 3rd Printing: 1985, [inside
      back cover]. Original Copyright 1981. Revised
      Edition: 1984.]

      "Another interesting development in the August
      7 meeting was the appointment, by resolution,
      of Patricia Simpson Rivinus, Paul Twitchell's
      secretary, as the new secretary of Eckankar.
      Only one day later, she was, by resolution,
      summarily removed from this position and told
      that

      ... her services as an officer are hereby termin-
      ated, both such removal and termination being eff-
      ective immediately. [....]

      Joan Cross (later Harold's wife) was

      ... appointed as Secretary of Eckankar, effective
      immediately, to serve the unexpired portion of the
      current term of Secretary."

      [See: Ford Johnson, Confessions of a God Seeker,
      A Journey to Higher Consciousness, p. 233-234] 

      Sharon,

      From what I can gather, it looks like Patti and
      David were married sometime before August 7th,
      1983. I don't know if that marriage broke up, but
      it appears both are scheduled to speak at the
      Monterey Conference today.

      A few comments -
       
      I believe ekult didn't publish Marman's book for two possible reasons. 
       
      1)   They're still using the "mushroom" approach to Twitchell's
      extensive plagiarism - keep 'em in the dark and feed 'em manure.  Many
      paying members aren't on the internet, and some who *are* on the
      internet don't/won't read anything other than official ecksites.  
      Publishing Marman's book would result in more people finding out about
      the plagiarism and leaving ekult - perhaps to follow Marman's new
      "spiritual path".
       
      2)  Like Ford Johnson, Doug Marman wants to reap any & all profits from
      the book and things like today's "conference".   Some time ago, someone
      posted at ET that if ekult publishes your book, you sign over not just
      all royalties, but the copyright too!!!
       
      Is David Rivinus Patti Simpson's second husband?  Somewhere over the
      years, I got the impression that that marriage broke up too.
       
      Patti Simpson's "Hello Friend" was one of the first books I read after
      joining ekult.  The kal was whispering to me as I read it, as it did
      about so many other eckthings.  Simpson wrote about Twitchell's demands
      on her and the strain it put on her marriage.  I thought a true
      "master" would have honored and respected he
      r obligations to her
      family, and should have been able to find someone else to do all the
      work she did for him.   The kal also whispered that it sure sounded
      like their relationship wasn't all "spirichul", if you know what I mean.
       
      Well, I've got to thank Doug Marman for helping me wake up & get out
      back in '98.  As a member of the online behind-the-scenes "EckGestapo",
      I "saw" a lot of shocking things about those HIs - it took me longer to
      realize that Marman was actually much *worse* than most of them because
      he was so good at keeping up that phony sneaky unctuous crap.
       
      Gawd, these phony "spiritual paths" seem to breed like fruit flies in
      canning season, don't they?
       
      Back to Ford Johnson, I suspect he's not raking in as many $$$ as he'd
      hoped for and he's cutting back on "spiritual-path" related expenses,
      like "pay per click" ads on internet search engines, and whatever all
      the internet stuff cost him.  Looks like the new location of his
      TS-forum or whatever is now located at a "free" server?  Maybe I'm
      wrong, but it's just the impression I've gotten.   I wonder if he's
      ever paid back the money he stole from his employees' withholding
      taxes?   And yes, it IS stealing when you take money you've withheld
      for employee taxes and used it for something else, instead of obeying
      the law and sending it to the IRS.
       
      Have a great weeken
      d, everyone!
       
      Hugs,
       
      Sharon

      Hello All,
      I saw on "Eckankar Wire" an article that
      had a picture of Doug Marman cropped
      to look like the one Klemp is selling as
      "The Master's Gaze." However, I also
      noticed that DM's picture has recently
      been deleted from this article.

      But, I found it again!

      http://www.montereycountyweekly.com/archives/2008/2008-Oct-02/a-discussion-
      with-a-different-sort-of-spiritual-leader/1/@@index

      I doubt that this comes up but just Google:
      Traveling Light: Doug Ma
      rman

      The article is by Sarah Kenoyer of the
      MontereyCountyWeekly.com

      In Klemp's photo HK is looking slightly to
      his right and in Doug's DM is looking slightly
      to his left.

      Check it out!

      Is Doug competing with Harry on book sales?
      I wonder WHY Eckankar didn't publish Doug's
      book on Twitchell?

      Here's a site where David Lane attempts
      to have a rational discussion with Marman.
      Unfortunately, Lane didn't realize that Marman
      is a narrow-minded brainwashed wannabe
      with a hidden agenda.
