Klemp Recycles More "Ask the Master" Q&A
- The 1st Q&A in the June 2009, The
Mystic World comes from the April
2008, The Letter of Light. Klemp is
just too lazy and disrespectful of
his followers to dream up a current
Why, then, do EKists need a "living"
Master when HK just recycles old opinions/
This is a repost of The Letter of Light,
Questions for the Master, April 2008.
Here's the same Question and Answer,
for ECKists today (more than one year
later), that appears in The Mystic World
of ECKankar, Ask the Master, June 2009-
April 2008 LoL/June 2009 TMW:
Q: "Part of being a good leader is allowing
other people the space to serve as they can,
BUT sometimes when people shirk their
responsibilities I tend to get upset very easily."
ME: If the EK org. gave people enough space
perhaps they could, also, have a choice on
Whether or Not they wanted to "serve." Besides,
maybe they "Changed" their minds about wanting
to be one of Klemp's "Z"ombies, but don't know
how to tell the person in charge, or know how to
resign without creating hard feeling due to peer
pressure and intimidation from people like this
EK Youth Leader.
Q (continued): "Then I remind myself that I must
Not judge other people by my standards, BUT
I also feel that self-discipline is an important part
of our spiritual education."
ME: No! It's part of your "spiritual education!"
Don't be concerned about wanting to "Change"
other people because they will "change" via
your positive (or negative) influence, or on their
own, or not at all... or maybe just in small ways!
This ECKist is the one who needs self-discipline
from judging others and from being an anal
Q (continued): "People should do what they
have agreed to do."
ME: Not always! If I agreed to support your political
candidate and then, later, found out some things he
had said in the past, or something about his senate
voting record that I didn't like then I should be able
to "change" my mind. The same goes for most things.
People should always have the freedom to "change"
their minds. Maybury is an idiot and so is Klemp!
Q (continued): "Then I seesaw between feeling
upset over this and feeling guilty. Could you please
teach me the best way to handle this situation."
ME: For one thing be more concerned about your
own spiritual growth and values than in others.
And, HK can't help you with "feeling guilty." Look
at how he's handled Darwin's death! Besides, In
the Eckankar hierarchy and RESA orgs there will be
many times where you will see incompetent people
being promoted in both higher initiations and in
position (HK for one). Just realize that the initiations
are bogus and this is why this happens... it's no mystery
and they are Not more advanced on the inner or whatever.
You are seeing and hearing and observing who they
are (basically) and who they are pretending "as if"
to be. Soul is a private state observed within.
Now for Klemp's spin (he can't count either!):
HK: "Dear Nicole, Being a good leader in a given
situation starts with us. Our own self-discipline
is on the line. When working with a group of people,
 first define the task.
 Second, either assign the task to the
most qualified person or ask for a volunteer.
 Third, set a deadline.
 Fourth, on your calendar, set a date by
which to check up on each person and
 ask how that person's task is coming along.
These Four  steps will do a lot to avoid unpleasant
surprises. IF someone has fallen behind,  offer your
help or that of another. In this way, you remind people
of the responsibility they have undertaken. Should
someone fail to finish his task by deadline,  ask
what happened.  Then listen.  Are the reasons
sound? That does beg the question, though: 
WHY didn't you give me an update so you and I could
have worked something out?  Keep a private log
that lists  the date,  the task,  the person
in charge,  whether it was finished on time, and
last,  a comments column.  Do Not give a task
to someone who repeatedly misses the deadline.
You will thus be developing good leaders to help you
tell others about the beautiful teachings of ECK."
[end of HK's response]
ME: Yes! I enjoyed the way Klemp told "others about
the beautiful teachings of ECK!" Make no mistake,
these 17 steps (four by HK's count) are part of the
teachings of ECK! However, should HK be encouraging
his EK leaders to confront and grill chelas as to Why
something was Not done? It is what it is... or isn't!
What if the reasons aren't "sound" in their opinion?
What are EK leaders going to do, or say, or write into
their log... something negative perhaps? Discretion and
discrimination aren't Harry's strong points!
BTW- Someone should tell Klemp that the term
"deadline" is Not used by EK Leaders... it's "goal-line."
Is HK training this EK Youth to become one of his
RESA Police? It sure sounds like it! Where's the love
and understanding? Sure, some people want to take
on all kinds of responsibilities and titles because it
gets one noticed and that gets one promoted. Its
the Initiation (ego/fear) game. Also, a chela can always
play the blame game and shift their shortcomings
to someone else or to other factors as to why something
didn't get done. Reality happens! HK talks about
keeping records on people... this sounds more and
more like Scientology! It's getting closer to this, and
whackier, as Klemp's melon ripens to being like L. Ron's!
But No! Scientology is just too insanely organized to
compare it to the unorganized chaos and disharmony
of EK! Most of Eckankar's chelas haven't completely gone
over the deep edge... just yet! There's still hope that
some will soon WAKE UP!
