Klemp's Deceptions - What They Don't Tell AT ECK Intros!
- I was recently sent a copy of the
new Jan. 2010 "Tips for ECK Study."
One Klemp quote given in this
cheerleading pub is from "Ask the
Master, Book 1":
"The Co-workers with God work
quietly, effectively, and humbly."
Now let's decipher these words
and the intent behind them.
Klemp is telling his chelas, and H.I.s,
to shut-up, don't complain, or question
your leaders and work "quietly" for him
(God/Mahanta) as his Co-dependent
Co-worker. Do this "effectively" by
bringing in new members which brings
in more money and new worker bees.
And, do this "humbly" which means
don't expect to be rewarded if you
haven't had the training or connections
or have topped out as a 7th, except
of course, in your dreams & imagination.
This is where many EKists dwell...
the pretend worlds of religious dogma.
These long-time ECKists always see
Klemp promoting his Mastership while
never seeing their own Mastership! They
will forever be an Eckankar Leader, and
a spiritual follower... never a Master.
Yet, Eckankar still tends to promote
Spiritual Freedom and Self-Mastery
in This Lifetime!
What most ECKists failed to see was
that Klemp was promoting a "change"
in terminology. "Self-Mastery" and
"Spiritual Liberation" now meant "Self-
Realization," which included Freedom
of Karma (Spiritual Freedom). This is
accomplished via the 5th Initiation.
But, of course, that initiation carrot
is still being dangled. After all, one
hasn't succeeded or completed the
requirements of the 5th Plane until
one reaches the 6th Plane. By then,
one wants more power and accolades.
They want and need to become ESAs
in order to reach the 7th and become
a RESA, or a member of the Board,
and then the 8th in order to be on the
Spiritual Council. These attachments
are never ending distractions/tests
created by KAL and his agent Klemp.
Another older Klemp book that is being
promoted in this "Tips for ECK Study"
is "How to Find God." That's another
thing that always bothered me. Klemps
excuse is to use "common language"
and say "God" versus "Sugmad." Yet,
he and his Vahanas us "ECK" and "HU."
When did ECK and HU become "common
Basically this person is giving examples
from the book as to how Klemp's profound
words have helped her. Klemp talks about
"accepting changes" and "in Eckankar we
don't look to the past" except when Klemp
is telling his Seminar stories or mentioning
Mark Twain, Rumi, farm life, or his brother
Dwayne, John Doremus, Thomas J. Watson,
etc. etc. in one of his books or pubs as
The next book that is promoted is "Truth Has
No Secrets." Here's a profound quote: "When
love in on the field, fear must retreat." That's
apropos for the up-coming Super Bowl! But,
let's face it.... it's recycled. Klemp never had
this as an original thought and it's nothing
that Jesus didn't already teach!
Finally Klemp ends the promotion of his books
with one last book. "How to Find God" Book 2.
Klemp states, in bold letters, "Surrender Is the
Secret to Finding God." Yet, according to Klemp
in his Autobiography (pg. 385) he is a 14th Plane
God (and greater) than the 4th Plane God who
resides over all of the other religions on Earth!
Klemp concludes: "To reach God-Realization,
we must learn to surrender to Spirit, where we
give up everything on the inner--not outwardly."
Does this mean that ECKists are to "give up
everything on the inner" like their initiations?
Are they to "give up" the "Inner" Master/Mahanta
in order to reach God-Realization?
BTW- Is God-Realization the same as Sugmad-
Realization? Is Klemp just using "common language"
by saying "God-Realization" or is this referring
to the 4th Plane God and his "Realization?" Klemp
never means what he says does he? His choice
of words don't seem to be very important to him.
If one really needs to "give up everything on
the inner" why then would ECKists continue
to need the lower plane "outer" worlds of the
Here's an add for more EK Stories for HK to use-
"Do You Have a Story to Share? How have the
ECK books and study materials changed your
understanding of yourself as Soul? Helped you
apply the ECK teachings in your daily life? Tell
us how you use the ECK materials on your way
home to God. Send your stories to Eckankar,
Att: Tips for ECK Study."
Eckankar's Catch-22 for EK chelas and H.I.s
is that the search/journey for "the way home
to God" never ends or is successful via a group
effort. It's a Merry-Go-Round run by KAL/Klemp
where every ECKist is reaching for the brass ring
of more and more initiations yardsticks to God.
Every religion promises similar things via their
own dogma. It's nothing new! ECKists who think
otherwise are spiritually immature (weak) and
need religion. It's no wonder they hang on Klemp's
worthless promises and words!
