Re: Tom Flamma 1920-1974
- Hello Etznab and All,
Yes, it's too bad that Twitchell's
other books didn't get printed by
Gross or Klemp like Flamma's did!
I'm sure that there was enough
of PT's biography "The Wind From
Heaven" completed that it could
have been printed. Paul said that
it was supposed to be ready in the
Spring (of 1971, pgs 238-241).
And, the Shariyat 3 was supposed
to have been completed (pg. 136)!
What happened to it? Actually, Paul
said that "the Shariyat is a continued
writing, but I've got three books actually."
So, why was Klemp supposedly sending
people to India to find Sudar Singh
(aka Kirpal Singh) instead of printing
the material Paul left behind? Does Gail
still have these manuscripts and was paid
off by Klemp Not to have it printed?
It does show one thing... Paul was capable
and planned on doing all 12 Shariyats,
whereby, Klemp is incapable of writing
anything on the same level of con as PT!
Yes, I do keep an information timeline
for Eckankar trivia. I find it helps when I
want to locate specific dates and facts.
I wouldn't call this the same as writing a
book. Besides, this particular timeline is
a personal file and not a public one. The
updated version, that is.
Paul Twitchell read books, studied and
compiled information about religions and
world history. He wrote about cosmology
I wonder why the exploration and the
research didn't continue where Paul left
off. Didn't he mention something about
his writings in the talk Difficulties of Be-
coming the Living Eck Master. I mean,
how he felt about them in the 70s com-
pared with early on?
Sometimes I find it ironic when Eckists
are critical of my probing questions and
research about Eckankar history and ot-
ther things. Afterall, I'm not claiming for
a source so many masters in so many
temples that are hard to find the physical
history for. Instead, I try to make it clear
when something is my own opinion, when
I am not sure what is the actual truth, and
I try to give a source and credit the actual
authors of the information I come across.
