      Hello Russ and All,
      Yes, it's difficult to
      erase the mahanta/
      middleman programming
      which teaches enabling
      and codependency.

      However, the reliance
      upon anyone (LEM) or
      thing (Mahanta) is religiously
      superstitious and counter-
      productive to Soul's Self-
      Mastery and Spiritual
      Freedom.

      Yet, ECKists can't see
      that it's both a con and
      a trap! Only the strong
      pass the test of Beingness
      by rejecting all religious
      dogma!

      I've had a variety of
      phenomenal experiences
      Prior to, During, and
      even greater ones After
      Eckankar!

      The Mahanta crap is
      so bogus! H.I. Board
      Members have died of
      cancer before their time
      and ESC staffers and other
      H.I.s will come down with
      cancer as well, yet, HK
      claims he can "protect"
      them. But he doesn't!
      It's all Lip Service! The
      fault always lies with the
      Eckist and never with
      the Mahanta/LEM (Klemp).

      I knew of one ESA, and
      former Satsang President,
      who read Ford's book and
      quit Eckankar. Shortly afterwards,
      on a flight back home, his
      plane began to shake and
      smoke was smelled by the
      passengers. He told me that
      he did not petition the Mahanta
      for help nor for protection.
      They landed at their scheduled
      destination, on time, and
      everyone was fine. That
      was quite a test, but he
      passed, and praying to
      Klemp wasn't needed or
      necessary! It sounds silly,
      but Eckists "pray" to Klemp,
      although, they don't see it
      because they won't/can't
      admit to it!

      I remember after I quit
      Eckankar. The stress that
      was lifted from my shoulders
      and neck was incredible!

      I had never realized that I
      had let stress overwhelm
      me as it had. There were
      so many leadership responsibilities.
      I Followed procedures/
      guidelines and did general
      ass kissing and jumping
      through hoops to please
      the RESA for that next
      initiation and position.
      And, had to act "as if"
      when working on ECK
      projects with negative,
      and incompetent people
      who enjoyed their power
      trips.

      It was so nice to clean/clear
      it all out by eliminating the
      source of the stress... the
      religion of Eckankar!

      Afterwards, I constantly experienced
      an elevated clarity of mind and
      spiritual awareness. And, I had
      two days where I experienced
      pure contentment! It was incredible!
      It's really beyond words but every-
      thing becomes clearer and known
      when the muck is cleared away.

      The irony is that I had to quit
      the religion, Eckankar, that had
      promised it (contentment) to me
      in the first place in order to be
      able to receive It! Didn't Twitchell
      refer to such things as a paradox?
      Paradox or irony.... it's true!

      The Truth is, Eckankar is a trap
      and being strong enough to leave
      is the test.

      your own person. Last
      night I had a vision with
      my eyes open;

      this has been happening
      to me for a long time.
      Usually I go into, "thank
      you Mahanta" routine.
      Last night I acknowledged
      that I have a connection
      with Spirit and it isn't
      dependant on the mahanta/
      lem.

      Really cool to feel the
      connection without the
      interference (middle man).

      Ciao,
      Russ
