The 12/2009 Mystic World - The Wisdom Notes
- The Wisdom Notes 12/2009
Klemp talks out of both sides
of his mouth, as he both regresses
and digresses, and states that
he (as the LEM):
`teaches that all wisdom is gained
by changes in consciousness
through contact with the ECK.'
"This is according to [Twitchell's
40 year old] The Shariyat-Ki-Sugmad,
However, Klemp also teaches
Co-dependency and attachment
to an Outer and Inner Master...
himself! Therefore, this attachment
and focus leads to other restrictions
of freedom via: the RESA Hierarchy;
Laws; Rules; Zoas; Guidelines; Initiation
Numbers; Membership Requirements;
Coin and Service Expectations.
Next, Klemp states, "wisdom comes
through living. Experience is ever the
Klemp, then, states that this experience
(from the ECK) "imparts... all kinds
Klemp, now, backpedals, does a 180
and confuses the issue by saying, "BUT
knowledge is not wisdom. It simply provides
one with guidance on how to act."
This sort of dialogue is typical of conmen
and religious leaders. It's a shell game!
It's this, but it can also be that. This is
why ECKists second guess Klemp so
often! His empty words offer chelas
whatever they want it to mean. Words
are not important for Klemp and have
no true meaning except for his manipulations.
This is why there is so much redundancy
in his "message." It's all about detachment
and surrender while retelling (past) old
stories by other authors. Yet, HK claims
that ECKists should live in the present.
Now, Klemp inflates the egos of his chelas
and H.I.s in order to attach them to more
vanity and then ends with a disclaimer (a
Catch-22). HK: "A conscious experience,
in the spiritual sense, is largely the domain
of ECK chelas. WHY? Through the Spiritual
Exercises of ECK and chanting of their secret
word, THEY LEARN TO SEE HOW ALL
WHICH BEFALLS THEM IS FOR THE
ULTIMATE GOOD." Thus, if it's "good" then
they can sing praises to the Mahanta (Klemp)
and if it's "bad" it's either karma or a "test
of faith." Either way, it's all good for Klemp!
Next, Klemp states, "an example that
COMES TO MIND is a story once told by
radio show host John Doremus." Basically,
a man buys a birthday gift of two dozen (24)
roses. His note he enclosed read, "One rose
for every sweet year of your life." And the florist,
unbeknown to him, threw in an extra dozen
roses because he was such a good customer.
The man got into some trouble for that when
his girlfriend counted 36 roses. My o my, isn't
that a hoot! ECKists are ROTF and laughing
their asses off with Klemp's recycled joke.
Klemp takes this funny story, spins it, and
switches it around by saying, "... no matter
how important human love is, it is not the
kind that can approach the true love of God."
Next, Klemp does another 180 and states,
"ON THE OTHER HAND, many experiences
with human love certainly can teach one
compassion, which then gives him or her the
capacity to truly love God."
BTW- Where was Klemp's "compassion,"
for Darwin Gross 972nd LEM/Mahanta?
How does that work for Klemp? And, what
about passion? Can ECKists have a "passion"
for anything, or is passion just a negative
Astral feeling? Besides, doesn't Eckankar
teach that one should be "detached" from
human love and those "feelings?" Sure!
Therefore, why is Klemp claiming that
compassion, which leads to wisdom, is
something that ECKists can learn/earn.
Do ECKists really think that those phony
initiations can give them higher consciousness?
Yes, they really do and look at how insecure
they have become. They need Klemp to
point out the obvious.
In ECKankar "feelings" are seen as negative
traits. It's no wonder ECKists are so confused
and imagine and/or believe whatever they want,
or whatever they're told. Klemp keeps them
off-balance dazed and confused with his feel
good simple-minded stories. How is HK's
"ECK-speak" any different from what others
have said before? Klemp merely restates the
obvious by redirecting and manipulating the
words, thoughts, and meanings of others.
Next, Klemp mentions "Thomas J. Watson,
former president of IBM" and what he once
said "Wisdom is the power to put our time
and our knowledge to proper use."
Klemp does a critical review of Watson's
words by saying, "He was, I THINK, groping
for another word. `Genius` would have been
more apropos." Klemp's thinking is askew.
Wisdom is not the same as genius. Wisdom
is acquired through trials and tribulations while
geniuses (with higher mental IQ scores) are
born into the world. Thus, the difference between
over-achievers and high-achievers. Actually,
in many cases, ones genius is a detriment
to acquiring wisdom. BTW- Is Klemp indirectly
referring to himself as being a "genius?" He
did pay to be placed in, "The International
Who's Who of Intellectuals" (ninth edition).
What's Klemp's IQ score? I'll bet he can't
get into Mensa!
Klemp goes on to mention Twitchell's 1970
Shariyat Book One, twice more, in order to
fulfill the EK "Principle of the Threes." Is
this a form of White or Black Magic? Really,
when Klemp intentionally uses this EK
Principle of the Threes isn't that either
Black or White Magic? If it (the threes thing)
just occurred naturally then it would have
more significance as Golden-Tongued Wisdom
Anyway, the first quote is: "Profound
wisdom... does not reveal itself at first
glance because it is not a matter of
surface knowledge, BUT a deep realization
of the inner self."
The second quote is: "Knowledge alone
is not wisdom. A catalog of facts and
opinions by itself does not constitute
either literature or perfected works of
Next, Klemp shows his true nature.
Darwin Gross gave him initiations
6-12 and made him the LEM. Yet
Klemp states that, "In looking back
at all the people who ever had a strong
influence upon shaping my spiritual
life, only one do I consider a man of
wisdom, Paul Twitchell." Klemp hasn't
even mentioned Darwin's death to the
Isn't it strange (or not) that old pale
and grey Klemp is doing some
reminiscing and is building up the
plagiarizing conman, Twitchell, while
at the same time insulting Darwin's
memory. Besides, one would think that
(torchbearer) Rebazar would stand out
to Klemp. Instead, Klemp insults all
other "living" former Mahantas by saying
that "only one (Twitchell) do I consider
a man of wisdom."
Klemp goes on to give Twitchell more
accolades and ends by saying, "Let
us (versus me) just say that the Spiritual
Exercises of ECK are the beginning of
Why does Klemp say "us?" That's not
apropos! So, Klemp's "Wisdom Notes"
message seems to wind up with him saying
that the EK Spiritual Exercises are merely
the beginnings of wisdom. What's the
next step after that and what's the highest
step to take before achieving "wisdom?"
Surely after 28 years as the LEM/Mahanta
Klemp would have some really profound
things to say, unless, he's a fraud. Let's
face it... to the world Klemp is just a third
rate conman/preacher. He's no Rumi who
wasn't all that anyway!
BTW- I noticed that Klemp used 5 BUTS
in his message. He giveth and then in the
next breath taketh away! Always leave them
dazed and confused and second guessing.
Distraction is Klemp's true religious message.
