Re: Are we Masters?
- Prometheus, I didn't waste my money on listening to another Klemp
lecture so I don't have anything by that fraud.
On another note, those who have left or are in the process of leaving
Eckankar, I recommend reading books by the New Thought movement
writers like Neville Goddard, Joel Goldsmith, Walter Lanyon, and
others. These writers emphasize finding your own Master power within
rather than following masters or joining organizations. Here's just a
sample from Walter Lanyon who talks about how much you can harm
yourself when you follow a master. I also like what he says about
these frauds, especially when they damn their followers with the
direst threats if they dare to leave them (see the Shariyat and
Klemp's Satsang 3 and 4 series). Lanyon is spot on when he says most
of them can't even function like normal human beings. Anyway, here's
"So long as you believe in the Power apart from yourself you will keep
transferring the expression of your life to some being, or entity, or
master. ... there is no question of the limitations of the little self
standing in the way of the glorious expression of your God-self, and
you will not have to believe in outside help. When you know there is
nothing outside of you to help or harm you because the whole Power
lies within, then you have come to the contact with God.
...If you keep transferring your power to another point, and
recognizing powers outside of the Supreme Being, I shall prove to you
this denial is fruitful, and you shall bring forth the hellish crop of
fears which you are constantly "treating against.
Not finding a plausible way to dispose of the evil, you will attribute
it to other entities, either embodied or disembodied, or you will give
it a name and run about excusing your failure to Life -- God -- by the
fact that someone is "mal-practicing you," or that a person of another
faith is praying against you.
I have seen people rushing about pronouncing the cursings and telling
of evil things that would happen to people who did not subscribe to
their personal teachings, and sometimes engendering fears in others,
when they themselves could not bring out enough substance to pay a
subway-fare to their destination.
Awake, thou that sleepest! The next time the messenger of Light, who
has a fear thought of cursing and evil in the background, approaches
you with a sweet morsel of Truth, put him in the strait-jacket of
proof. Look him over carefully, deliberately; I think you will find
plenty of signs which indicate his utter lack of ability to bring out
even the most necessary things of life."
