The Wisdom Notes Dec. 2008
- Hello All,
This is another look at the Wisdom Notes.
Klemp is giving another lecture where
he is once again preaching about using
"discrimination," although, "results may
vary." The Catch-22 is that the M/LEM
"has to come: to help you achieve it,"
but when does he ever let them go?
Not in this lifetime!
THE WISDOM NOTES by Harold Klemp
Degrees of wisdom vary. Wisdom comes
in different measures, like a pinch of salt
to the highest degree possible.
The manifestation of wisdom may be likened
to a light in a lantern with shutters that
allow only a portion of the light to escape.
A given state of consciousness determines
the amount of wisdom shown.
One factor in determining the amount
of wisdom an individual displays is vanity.
The ego in a vain person stretches his
importance to an extravagant degree,
which others note with caution. Why the
They may well hesitate to rely upon his
judgment in serious matters. So, he must
exceed their expectations. They want to
be sure his discrimination is sound before
committing to his direction. How much
wisdom has he?"
*NOTE: Klemp now tells another "FABLE"
by the same person mentioned in his
front page article: "Problems and Their
Fable: 1.) A short tale used to teach
a moral, often with animals as characters.
2.) A story not founded on fact.
3.) A legend or myth.
4.) A lie; falsehood.
HK: "Jean de La Fontaine, the seventeenth-
century poet, tells a fable that demonstrates
the peculiar judgment of one such character.
An elephant and a rhinoceros once had
a quarrel. They each had a different opinion
about the boundaries of their domains and
were determined to do battle over the issue,
both willing to pit their might against the other's
brawn. Thus would the two settle the matter."
*ME: It seems like there is still in-fighting going
on within the ESC/RESA Hierarchy. Apparently
Klemp, the ESC, as well as, the ECK Satsang
Societies and the RESAs are incapable of controlling
the negative behaviors of local Officers, Directors,
Vahanas, and Coordinators. However, the territory
("boundary") disputes are created, mostly, via
the focus upon Position and Rank (Initiation level),
which feeds and inflates the Ego. It's really not a
surprise that this is still a problem even after the
H.I./L.I. Leadership Books/Workbooks, and Leadership
classes. These are, supposedly, the "highly evolved"
ECK Leaders Klemp is referring to! Chelas can't
receive "Inner" guidance because Klemp is a fraud!
Thus, HK needs to use lower means, verbal and
written words, in order to communicate his wishes.
I wonder, Who are the H.I. "Elephants" and Who
are the "Rhinoceroses?" Do they, also, look like
these animals? Klemp is implying that they are
behaving like these lower consciousness animals!
But, Why is Klemp, being indirect and ambiguous
as to How, Who, and What he Specifically Wants
done? Instead, Klemp is being obtuse and wishy-
washy, once again, by using a "fable!" No wonder
ECKists are confused, and that there are still problems
within the EK org (after 27 years) under Klemp's rule!
HK: "As fortune would have it, just then someone
ran up to announce the imminent arrival of the
god Jupiter's monkey, magic scepter in hand."
*[It should be noted that HK states in the EK
Lexicon (page 105) that JUPITER was: "THE
MAHANTA CONSCIOUSNESS." It seems
the "monkey," now, represents either an ECK
Master or, at the very least, a RESA! BTW- Is
that a White or a Black "magic scepter" (sword)
that Klemp's flunky/"Monkey" is holding?]
HK: "The Elephant IMAGINED that Jupiter's
messenger had come to enjoy the contest
between him and the Rhino, so he prepared
to welcome the ambassador into his own
majestic presence. But the monkey was
slow in coming to pay his respects."
*ME: WOW! Can it be any clearer than this!
HK: "Finally, he arrived. The Elephant was
truly PUZZLED, however, when the Monkey
sat completely silent after giving a causal
salute. So the Elephant said, `I would say
that JUPITER and all of his court are soon to
enjoy a tremendous battle!' `What battle?'
asked the Monkey with a sober face. `Why,'
sputtered the Elephant in bewilderment,
`the grand fight between me and the Rhino.
Surely, you've heard of the Rhino's challenge
to my pride? My honor must see revenge.'
*ME: It is true, HK, and his Elephants and Rhinos
[ECK Leaders] have Big Egos and seek revenge
upon others. Klemp, himself, holds onto grudges.
BTW- I thought of Joan when I read that "the
Elephant was Truly Puzzled" because of that
"puzzled look" JK gave that Third temporary
Postal clerk who wanted to see her I.D. before
wasting his time to look for a package for
someone that might Not have their I.D. with
them. The clerk was just following the (EK) Law
of Economy! It's strange to think that Klemp
thought it was okay to negatively chastise the
clerk for following the Law (both man's and
God's)! HK mentioned and spun this incident
in the 09/2003 H.I. Letter. Poor, 9th Initiate,
HK: "The Monkey, barely able to stifle a yawn,
regarded the other with curiosity. After a long
pause, Jupiter's ambassador said, `To be
frank, in the vast celestial palaces such
trifles are seldom spoken of at all.'
*ME: Is Klemp blind, arrogant, or stupid?
This is Why there is a problem in the first
place and Why Klemp is using this fable
to speak about it. Yet, JUPITER (the Mahanta)
and the Monkey (the RESAs) sit in their ivory
"palaces" oblivious to any problems until it's
too late and, thus, it is now necessary to use
an entire Wisdom Note to speak about this
problem in order to SHAME ECK Leaders into
cleaning up their "acts." Klemp expects, and
demands, submission to his Will versus Soul
having Its own Free Will.
HK: "The SHAMED Elephant, in a subdued
tone, asked, `Then what is your business
here in the land of Elephants?' The Monkey
fingered his Scepter and replied, `Why, I've
come to divide and distribute a blade of grass
among some ants.' The gods shower care upon
all creatures, great and small."
*ME: So, the Monkey (RESA) came to divide
a blade of grass (Vahana Tips, or excerpts,
from the RESA Star?) among some ants
(chelas). That's so special!
HK: `As to your affair, that's not yet been
discussed in the heavens above.' "A person
with an Elephantine Ego is only a Fool. Of
course, No Fool is Wise."
*ME: Apparently something is being "discussed"
now! Klemp must be looking into the mirror
often, and is, thus, speaking of his own Huge
EGO. HK is a Fool! Anyone who has to say that,
"No Fool is Wise" must think that he is "Wise"
and, therefore, cannot be a "Fool."
[Next, Klemp brings Rebazar
and Twitch into the fable.]
HK: "So, then, what is the path of
wisdom, the highest and best way
to conduct our living?"
*ME: Is this where Klemp, once again,
preaches to the (EK) choir?
HK: "Consider the example of the
ECK Masters. Their life's mission is
to bring all who are spiritually ready
into the presence of the Mahanta, the
LEM. That is their calling. That is what
they do. What better role models could
a high-minded seeker ever hope to
*ME: Wasn't Darwin one of these ECK
Master "role models" for, at least, 10 years!
And, let's not leave out the biggest liar
and con/god man of the three M/LEMs...
Twitchell! Besides, these INVISIBLE, as well
as "Unknown" EK Masters are imaginary
and are pretend characters... like in a fable!
Klemp can't see it but those "high-minded
seekers," who join, eventually, become
the "high-minded" ECK Leaders that
became hugely Egotistical Elephants and
Rhinos that are running amuck and creating
chaos! Or, perhaps, some of these ECK Leaders
are merely expressing their independence
BTW-Klemp states that his "life's mission
is to bring all who are spiritually ready into
the presence of the Mahanta," When does
he let them go? When do they graduate?
When is Spiritual Freedom and Self-Mastery
achieved? Shouldn't it take, these so-called
Highly Advanced EK Souls, LESS TIME versus
HK: "The Master will then do everything
possible to deliver the seeker into the heart
of SUGMAD. That was also the mission of
Rebazar Tarzs during his own tenure as the
foremost leader of the ECK community, years
and years ago, as that age's M/LEM."
*ME: Okay, once the chela is delivered to
SUGMAD when does the chela become
free of the M/LEM? The Mahanta's or at least
the LEM's "Mission" has been accomplished!
Also, since R.T. stepped in for Twit, for 35
days, those who came into ECKankar during
that time are Rebazar's chelas! It wasn't in
HK: "As the Master, he instructed a willing
chela, Peddar Zaskq, in the practices and
understandings needed to walk the path
to God with love and wisdom."
*ME: Haven't most H.I.s, by now, developed
the "Practices and Understandings NEEDED
to Walk the Path to God [on their own] with
Love and Wisdom!" Or, are these just more
empty words by H.K. proving that ECKankar,
the M/LEM, and the ECK Masters are merely
shams invented by Twitchell!
HK: "Peddar's instruction took in the
Spiritual Exercises of ECK and how to
do them. Furthermore, Rebazar also
told him what his experiences in the
Light and Sound of God signified and
the ways to ride the celestial Sound
Current. Nor was that instruction the
whole of it. Not by any means. Rebazar
also told Peddar how to conduct himself
in regard to the many attitudes lurking
*ME: What did it "signify" when Klemp
admitted that he worked (daily) in, and
met with Darwin, in a Sound Proof Dark
Room at the ESC? It "signifies" that the
ECK (the Sound & Light) was absent in
Klemp's life, and those plans they both
made to transfer the Rod of ECK Power
to Klemp were done so Without the ECK!
Look at Ch. 7 of "Soul Travelers of the Far
Country." Why isn't this book offered
anymore? When Klemp did his "Autobiography"
he edited out the fact that this room was,
also, Sound Proof! This is why HK doesn't
offer the other book any longer. It's another
cover-up of sorts! Klemp was tying up loose
ends because he revealed too many details
in Ch. 7 of "Soul Travelers of the Far Country."
HK: "He showed him how to be free of
grief, to live in oneness with others,
and to find deep and satisfying peace
*ME: Why don't ECKists just by-pass old
wishy-washy Klemp and adopt the timeless
500 year old Rebazar (the Torchbearer
of ECKankar) as their Spiritual Leader!
HK: "It was in this way that Peddar gained
wisdom. His unfoldment went from that of
a neophyte in ECK to the Mastership itself.
Yes, he and all ECK Masters stand as models."
*ME: Yes, ECKists are to emulate 14th Initiate
Klemp via their imaginations, and to pretend
"as if" they, too, are "Higher." BUT, why would
ECKists want to have tired old looking simple-
minded Klemp as a role "model" versus 500
year old Rebazar and other, timeless, ECK Masters
as role models?
HK: Practice, then, the Spiritual Exercises
of ECK. Avail yourself of the Talks and Writings
of ECKankar like the Shariyat-Ki-Sugmad,
Stranger by the River, and ever so many
more titles. Be the sage, not a fool. Walk
the path of ECK wisely." [END]
*ME: Why is it that Klemp No Longer Offers
the "ECK-Vidya," or "Difficulties Of Becoming
The Living ECK Master?" Thus, Klemp is being
deceptive when he says, "and ever so many
more titles" (by Twitchell). "Difficulties" is a
historical ECKankar book! That story about
the "Moon Virus" is one of my favorites!
Also, isn't it strange that Klemp is referring
ECKists to books that were written by
the first ECK Master (P.T.) around 1970!
Why hasn't Klemp (the greatest Mahanta ever)
written a Shariyat-Ki-Sugmad Books 3 and 4?
Why hasn't HK written poetry to rival RUMI
who wasn't even an ECK Master?
Thus, according to Klemp, Rebazar gave
ECKists the "Spiritual Exercises" while
Twitchell gave them the "Shariyat-Ki-
Sugmad Books 1&2," as well as, "Stranger
by the River" (with Rebazar's help of
course)! So, why should ECKists continue
looking to Klemp? I don't get it!
In ECKankar, Degrees of Wisdom and
Degrees of Initiation are related to
one another. In this Members Only
pub (The Mystic World) Klemp is speaking
to ALL of his Initiates.
Thus, HK is intentionally contradicting
the ECK teachings and is feeding his
gullible, immature, and impressionable
According to the ECK teachings, concerning
the powers and abilities of the Mahanta,
the vain and narcissistic H.I.s, who
still have those Huge Elephant Sized
Egos, as well as, those with Thick Rhino
like skins cannot, also, have those Higher
initiations, or be promoted! And yet,
these chelas are whom Klemp is talking
about! Thus, they have been promoted
and maintain Positions and Initiations
of power and authority with the Mahanta's
Knowledge and Blessings!
However, Klemp, once again, tries to have
it both ways. If ECKists have Higher Degrees
of Wisdom they should, also, have Higher
Initiations UNLESS they have fallen, like
Darwin, or there was a mistake made in
giving them their Higher Initiations! Does
Klemp's printed words correct this defect?
Of course Not! But, such things happen
when religions are based upon lies and
myth. Klemp has to write articles because
the "Inner" communication is imaginary!
