Re: The Hook: "Experience God's Love at the Temple of ECK"
- Hello Diana,
You bring up some good points.
"The inner what?"
Everyone dreams and with practice,
effort, and attention one can begin
to remember them more often.
Basically, Eckankar, and all religions,
take some commonalities like dreams,
intuition, and insights then embellish
and distort them to suit their scam
(i.e. hidden agenda) and dogma.
The unconscious and subconsciousness
mind (along with the unknown universe
as well as esoteric mysteries) represent
the "inner." Religions, however, create
"Planes of God" or "Levels of Heaven"
etc. out of these unknown regions of
reality. But what is reality and how many
exist? There is a personal reality, but
there are others, beyond number, and
beyond our own perceptions, and an
over all reality which might never be
known to mankind. People like Klemp
don't have and will never have a clue
as to what this is. BTW- There is no
such thing as Astral etc. This is B.S.
The problem is that there really is an
"inner/outer" existence (i.e. reality)
beyond our perception. Unfortunately,
religion has distorted this and given
us dumbed down copies of what is,
essentially, one's limited and personal
perception and insights to All That Is.
And that's the plus side! On the negative
side it can all be a big fat lie used to
scam and manipulate people.
I, of course, have had many dreams.
I've, also, done lucid dreaming at times.
And, while in meditation/contemplation
have had "inner" experiences. But, the
mind is a powerful tool and can create
what we consciously and unconsciously
desire or expect, or at times, will randomly
extract, project and experience various
impressions.The mind's ability to be
influenced is why/how placebos work
so well. Therefore, sharing testimonials
(EK stories) and minor miracles (or major
ones commonly found in major religions)
simply feeds the mind's (ego's) expectations
to satisfy, comfort and protect the individual.
It is interesting that Eckankar took
a change in direction with "sharing
stories." At one time it was seen as
'casting your pearls before swine'
and was discouraged because people
would tend to add to one's experience
or pick it apart. Over the years Klemp
changed this policy in order to have
material (padding) for his many books.
The more books he "writes" the more
money and fame he gets.
First you need the assurance
from Eckist that what you are
experiencing is true.
The more we talked about our
experiences in the dream state
the more we believed them.
I never had any experiences in
the dream state or what they call
the inner. The inner what?
