Re: Klemp Confuses ECKists - Keeps Them Second Guessing & Off-Balance
- Hello and Welcome,
Thanks for the post and the perspective.
I've made a few comments in response.

*ME: I do think that Eckists are expected to use their
imaginations to fill-in the blanks, due to lack of facts
and details, and this is what causes the "second-guessing"
of the Mahanta. Sometimes it works out okay and sometimes
it doesn't and when it doesn't Klemp has to write a nasty
article in the H.I. Letter in order to shake things up and
to make his point. BTW- That's actually WAH-Z or Z, and
isn't it interesting that Darwin suggested the "WAH" part.

The duality and confusion, I think, comes from on
one hand telling people 'don't worship the personality' -
focus on the Eck - then on the other hand, making
endless comments about focus should be on the Mahanta.
But then again the Mahanta is the "inner" master not
the outer one...
*ME: Yes, I agree. And, in some respects the Mahanta
is the LEM just as the LEM is the Mahanta, but now HK
is also claiming to be the ECK on both the outer and
inner. Except, in the lower worlds the ECK is the KAL...
Other places I have seen, although not recently, comments
about not -over-thinking the outer works of Eckankar -
trust with your Soul and heart, etc., and downplaying
advanced education. In the earlier days of Harold, in
some circles by HIs it was commented on that his style
was to help reach the spiritual seekers who were attracted
more to his style than Paul's or Darwin's - and implied
"less educated", possibly even lower intelligence level????
other comments were made that those initiated under
Paul would stay with Paul, those under Darwin, with Darwin,
etc. I always have found this strange when the want us old-
time Eckists out doing vahana work and we are supposed
to be able to promote Harold.
*ME: Yes, even the most ignorant can mouth words
like "it's all about love" as they blindly beat their drums.
In the beginning the Master that one was initiated under
was your Master always! Both Gross and Klemp changed
this, but mostly Klemp. If Darwin was kicked out of the
Vairagi Order (according to Klemp's word only) then he
couldn't have chelas. Klemp took on Darwin's chelas
supposedly... or so the lie goes. Yes, I can see where
Klemp wanted older more brain-washed H.I.s to give
their loyalty to him while attracting even less educated
new chelas to his charismatic personality. I'm being
sarcastic of course! Paul and Darwin had charisma
and Klemp... well, he's more of a back-stabbing
weasel in the EK henhouse.
Can anyone crack some light on 'how the heck did
Harold get picked any way to lead Eckankar?' While
I have my suspicions, I don't really know. At the time,
my instincts thought the next Eckankar leader / master
would be Peter Skelsky.
*ME: HK flew under the radar at the ESC and
was on the EK Literary Council, wrote brochures,
a book, etc. HK looked meek and controllable, thus,
he would be the book writing front man as the LEM.
Darwin had no idea that HK had been locked up in
a Mental Institution and learned "how to play the game"
(of deceit) in order to be released early. Darwin didn't
like to write books... he liked to have fun! Thus, Harry
became the perfect choice!
Thanks for your comments, Prometheus!
*ME: Thank You!
