Minor "Mahanta" Miracles Feed the Imagination
- Hello All,
I was looking at my copy of the JUNE
2009 "The Mystic World" and saw the
section called, "Thanks for Your LETTERS."
This is where chelas send in stories
to promote their discovery of the
Mahanta's "GOD-like" abilities.
Apparently, most chelas need to
read other people's "proof" so they
too can grab at imaginary straws.
ECKists share their stories with
fellow chelas to show how the
Mahanta (Middleman & Miracle-man),
Klemp, has intervened to "help" them
out of some negative situation where
they, or their property, could have been
harmed otherwise. I still haven't seen
where HK (the Mahanta) cures Cancer
so maybe his "Powers" are somewhat
limited to fate/karma, a crapshoot,
and one's imagination!
One story (that ECKankar is promoting)
tells of a storm that blew down a huge
tree limb near the house of these ECKists
and missed their house, car, boat, and
shed. It was a miracle that it fell perfectly
between these without doing any damage
to anything! And, when morning came
they discovered another miracle. Their
clothes line had protected the flower
bed and vegetable patch from another
tree limb! WOW!
However, after leaving ECKankar
I, too, had an experience that was
similar to this one. It involved a
whole tree that blew down perfectly
on a walkway between my house and
garage (car). The forty foot tree was
close to the house and blew down away
from the house. It didn't even damage
my pathway lights along the walkway!
IMO-Nobody could have cut this
tree (mine) to fall so perfectly! And
yet, there it was! NO Mahanta involved!
Even more, I rejected the Mahanta
(Klemp) and spit in his face (so to
speak)! So, who or what produced
this "miracle?" Perhaps it was good
karma, or it had more to do with
Soul and Soul's private and individual
relationship with the Holy Spirit than
it does with a Middleman/Mahanta/
Whatever and with a group consciousness
(religion). After all, ECK(ankar) is built
around Dogma (spoken and unspoken
rules, beliefs, and religious do's and
don'ts), a "spiritual" (inner) Hierarchy
and an outer pecking order, and the
use of one's Imagination involving EK
Masters, etc. that ties it all together
into a nice neat little package.
I'm amazed that EKists don't see the
correlation of these EK stories, with
"Mahanta miracles," and the "miracles"
of other religious/non-religious followers
All EK chelas have to do is to GOOGLE
"miracles" and see, for themselves, what's
happening (with miracles) in the rest
of the world.
How are the (14th Plane) "Mahanta miracles,"
that some ECKankar chelas experience, any
different from the "miracles" of a 2nd or 4th
Plane "God" (the KAL), or from karma? There
is No difference except in scriptural semantics!
ECKists need to believe in order to overcome
doubt and fear and to have faith. Klemp's job
is to supply EK chelas with their own private,
narrow-minded, and arrogant religious beliefs
in order to distract them (from Truth) and
to fuel their imaginations.
ECKankar is a Religion. And, All Religions
are detrimental to the advanced Soul.
Religions are money and power makers
for the few at the top. They offer promises
and give hope of a better life after death.
"Miracles," and other testimonials, are used
as proof that the Dogma (scripture), is true.
Yet, no religion ever lets their followers go.
Nobody ever "graduates" in their current
lifetime! ECKankar uses the initiations as
a hook, but Mastership never comes, except,
to the cunning wannabe who positions himself.
Thus "spiritual liberation in this lifetime"
never comes either... even for 7ths, let alone
8ths and 9ths! Yet, the Shariyat 2, Ch. 12
states that 7ths are free to leave! Of course,
this is taken back in the next after thought.
Do many H.I.s wonder why they still need
to be a member of a religion? Shouldn't
Soul be as free as a bird and "Codependent
No More!" One always has the Holy Spirit
and IT doesn't charge a yearly fee, or cares
about initiation numbers!
