Youth in ECK - Letter of Light - April 2009 Q&A #3
- Q: "Sometimes I put so much energy on one
task in my life that when I face setbacks they're
difficult to overcome.
For instance, I dedicate so much of myself
to one activity with a positive, goal-oriented
But lately I've come to the realization of how
difficult this journey is, and it's hard to shake
the fear that maybe I can't do it.
How do I overcome this doubt?--Sarah Lewis,
age 22, Alta Loma, California"
ME: What's interesting is that Sarah is an EK
Youth Leader and has contributed an article
to this "Letter in Light" (front page) and has
shared her Mahanta experiences in other past
issues (July 2008). The title to her (vahana)
shared article in this pub is titled: "Love and
Service around the World, Co-workers with
the Mahanta." Apparently, "singing HU" and
being a "Co-worker with the Mahanta" isn't
working for her!
HK: "Dear Sarah, Most of us like to succeed
with our projects. BUT success may not come
so easily. The key is not to become attached
to a task, because its purpose may be to lead
us to a greater one, better suited for our
ME: "Our" spiritual progress? Who's he kidding!
That's right Sarah just keep your nose to the
Vahana grindstone and someday (in 20 years?)
you'll be hitting the glass ceiling as a 7th Initiate
RESA! Hurray! Isn't that special! Not really, but
many chelas equate being "higher" in the pecking
order (EK Hierarchy) as, also, being "higher" in
consciousness too. However, being able to organize
and run a Local Satsang Society on the Physical
Plane (even lower than the Astral) doesn't equate
to having a "higher" consciousness!
HK: "Failure has embraced inventors like
Edison (lightbulb, phonograph), Fulton
(steamboat), and Bell (telephone). You
may be sure each faced failure time and
again before finding success."
ME: Klemp is comparing apples to oranges!
Sarah is Not a scientist working with Astral
ideas/inventions to recreate on the Physical
Plane. She said that she uses a "positive goal-
oriented attitude," White Magic, but has "come
to the realization of how difficult this journey
(life) is, and it's hard to shake the fear." Why
would a 22 year old, let alone an ECKist,
have any fear? What's behind her fear?
HK: "So maybe you can't overcome a setback.
Life goes on, doesn't it?"
ME: Klemp is clueless isn't he! He just can't
show any empathy because he doesn't know
how to love anyone except himself! He's out-
of-touch with present day reality.
HK: "Have you heard of Audie Murphy?
When World War II came, he wanted to
serve his country as a marine. He was
rejected for being too small. Unfazed,
he enlisted in the army. Murphy emerged
from the war as the most highly decorated
of all U.S. servicemen, and even received
the Congressional Medal of Honor."
ME: Audie Murphy! Yes, let's use a "war"
hero (killer) as an example! Just because
Sarah is a small young woman doesn't mean
that she can't become the Mahanta/LEM
someday! LOL! Wait! She can't! What a great
analogy to keep her in the field doing good
works (Gray/White Karma?) and selling $$$
ECKankar to a handful of people and spreading
the "word" for Klemp.
HK: "Doubt is Not necessarily a Bad Thing
either. It can push you on. Ask the Mahanta
to guide your spiritual life, and then everything
will turn out for the very best."
ME: Klemp is soooo stupid and full of bullshit!
He's basically saying, "doubt," in general, can
be good! Thus, having "doubt" about the Mahanta
and his false promises and Godlike powers is
a good thing... as long as this doubt is removed
by trusting him and more of his empty promises.
Can't ECKists see this farce! Isn't this why Sarah
is writing to Klemp (the Mahanta) in the first
place? She HAS asked the Mahanta for help on
the Inner and never got a reply! It's like when
other religionists pray to their God. Sometimes
miracles happen, but mostly the answer is No!
Apparently, for Sarah, it didn't "turn out for the
very best," as Klemp promises or it wouldn't have
been necessary for her to write her question!
Writing questions to Klemp, for answers via snail
mail, is the only way that ECKists will ever know
what he approves of in order for HK "to guide your
spiritual life." Otherwise, it's all second guessing
and pretending that everything is fine. Why does
Sarah, Soul, need a middleman for an entire lifetime?
And, especially one full of empty promises like
Klemp! Why do "advanced" Souls need a physical
(lower) plane religion anyway? ECKists should
think about, and contemplate, on this!
