Harold Klemp: The Early Years As LEM
- I was cleaning out some old papers
and EK junk and saw some blue & white
1983-89 Mystic Worlds. These were
the years when Klemp wore contact
lens versus his big ugly glasses.
I wonder why he changed his looks
and went back to wearing glasses?
I also noticed that his articles seemed
to be more inspired and required
somewhat more brain matter/energy
to write, as well as, to read.That, too,
seemed to change over the years and
Not for the better either!
HK seems to have reinvented the
K.I.S.S. approach from the top down.
It reminds me of how advertisers
and NEWS shows approach and
talk down to their audience on
a high school sophomore level,
or lower! Maybe 8th grade!
It is true that our educational system
has been dumbed-down. Why else
could an idiot like G.W. obtain a
Masters Degree at a prestigious
school and then get elected President!
Eckankar, too, has become dumbed-
down. Currently, many longtime Higher
Initiates don't even trouble themselves
with analyzing let alone discussing the
details and hidden meanings of the EK
Besides, it's forbidden to disagree
and this is taught to new Arahatas.
However, everyone on Klemp's boat
has to agree with the Captain or else!
The first three choices, below, are
what many Eckists, over time, have
chosen for themselves. Unfortunately,
the fourth choice is to stay is Eckankar
since it's the easier way.
1) Quite Eckankar and all religions.
Become your own path and take/make
your own Journey.
2) Quite Eckankar and join another
religion for that social interaction
but don't buy everything.
3) Remain in Eckankar, but be your
own person. Don't buy into all of
the hype nor follow "Guidelines"
specifically or the RESAs to the letter
of the law. The "spirit" of the law
is more relevant. After all, they
are only there to "guide" those
who haven't learned and don't
already "know." If Soul equals Soul
then there should "only" be a Lower
Plane (imperfect) Hierarchy!
4) On the other hand those Eckists
who stay must Act and Do as
expected/required. This means
unquestionable Belief and Faith
in their scriptures (Holy Books),
as well as, an unquestionable
acceptance of the Words, Instructions,
Guidelines, Discourses, etc. and
anything else Klemp (and his
appointed leaders) have to say.
One has to maintain silence and
a mindless and uncritical, yet happy
and positive, "Yes Man" attitude
when around Eckists. They must
give Klemp credit for everything
"good." The "bad" is either their
fault (Karma) or a spiritual "Test"
that they have failed (their fault
again). And, Eckists need to talk
and think constantly about the
Mahanta's "love" in order to
complete and maintain the brain-
washing. Instead of Jesus the Eckist
has substituted Klemp, the Mahanta.
But, I wonder, What Would Jesus
Do if he came back to the physical
plane and became the LEM/Mahanta?
Would he (Jesus) do as Klemp has
done for all of these years?
Would Eckists, or people in general,
expect more from Jesus?
Yet, Klemp claims to be, at least,
Ten Planes Higher in Consciousness
Again, compare the two, Jesus and Klemp
on the Outer Plane of this Here and Now,
and every time 2nd Initiate Jesus comes
out far ahead of Klemp! Mark Twain comes
out far ahead of Klemp! One has to wonder
since communications is World Wide!
What's wrong with 14th Initiate Klemp?
