      Hello Etznab and All,
      Yes, Twit's plagiarisms
      are apparent to us and
      Klemp recognized it by
      admitting that PT needed
      to get ECKankar off the
      ground quickly and, thus,
      used other people's
      research to do so... by
      hook or crook.

      The end justifies the
      means (PT's lies) according
      to Klemp. EKists have
      accepted this and will
      overlook or rationalize
      this because they see
      the modern creation of
      ECKankar as the greater
      good. But, Negativity (lies)
      cannot bring forth Truth.

      The thing is, a person
      is supposed to cite their
      sources and put copied
      text inside of quotation
      marks. That's why they
      are called "quotation
      marks."

      If one doesn't use quotes
      or cite sources the reader
      is mislead into thinking
      that these are the actual
      words and ideas of the
      author/writer.

      Thus, Twitchell and,
      now, Klemp became
      false prophets via their
      own efforts and amoral
      behaviors. Klemp is the
      biggest hypocrite in EK
      and is the last one to
      ever criticize an H.I.'s
      behavior!

      As far a "God" goes; it
      is interesting to look
      at the oldest religions
      that are still around.

      Twitchell, it's obvious,
      took a little something
      from all religions, but
      not necessarily the "best"
      from them as the story
      goes.

      Besides, most of these
      religious beliefs are flawed
      to begin with. That's one
      reason for the various
      denominations. Thought,
      perception and perspective
      from groups of believers
      dictated belief and experiences.
      And, this has usually led
      to change and has, in some
      cases, evolved over time
      (not always in a good way)
      while the fundamentalists
      have regressed into the
      literal beliefs of the lies,
      fabricated stories, myth,
      and exaggerations coming
      from known, unknown or
      unsubstantiated "original"
      sources pior to "prophetic"
      revisions.

      "Inspired" Scripture is
      always seen as coming
      from God, although, there
      are many degrees of
      perception. Truth cannot
      be easily validated, but
      religions by-pass any
      of the rational requirements.
      Religion is the easy way
      to accept God's existence
      and that's why they've
      made it difficult to follow
      with endless dogma, rules,
      and laws.

      Perhaps, The Real, individual
      path, is via deconstruction.

      All ancient and new religions,
      over time, have seen much
      of their scripture changed
      by inclusions or exclusions
      by councils or prophets and
      other "experts" or theologians
      and scribes influenced by
      sex, ego, power, basic greed,
      money and politics.

      Hinduism is the oldest
      religion, next come:
      Judaism; Zoroastrianism;
      Jainism & Buddhism;
      Christianity; Islam.

      It's interesting to look
      at how these old school
      religions have morphed
      into various denominations
      and sects.

      Hello All, I find it interesting that there are some denominations in Judaism that are all inclusive. They see those in other denominations as fellow Jews.

        Hello All,
        I find it interesting
        that there are some
        denominations in
        Judaism that are all
        inclusive. They see
        those in other denominations
        as fellow Jews. Whereas
        there are other more
        ultra orthodox
        denominations that
        don't.

        The same applies
        to Christianity. Some
        older denominations
        see themselves closer
        to the origins of God's
        teachings. They rely
        upon a stagnant old-
        world mindset and
        myth to give themselves
        authority above others.

        This same exclusive
        mindset applies to
        ECKankar. Rather than
        greet and support those
        who, also, believe in
        the Shabd (i.e. the Light
        and Sound) EKists will
        throw these same Spirit
        minded people out of
        their meetings, worship
        services, and ECK Centers.
        And, people cannot join-
        in with their "worship"
        of the Shabd without
        paying a membership
        fee. What other religion,
        other than Eckankar,
        requires a membership
        fee (called a donation
        for tax purposes)!

        Eckankar is all about
        initiation. That's why
        ECKists will pay (yearly)
        in order to get the
        membership card that
        leads to initiation...
        at least until Klemp's
        requirement blockade
        becomes unbearable
        and more initiations
        become (for all practical
        purposes) unattainable.

          Do you know if it is true that some forms of Judaism believe that all languages evolved from Hebrew. If so, I don't see HU as part of their spirituality, and is this discussed in eckankar. I don't recall. I do though recall some eck book using Genesis as proof of God creating the earth with the Word. This is a very Biblical approach. And of course their are no ancient texts of eckankar to provide proof for anything, except supposedly on the astral or whatever. All of this is a lot like the basis of Mormonism, the gold plates that mysteriously disappeared.

          The typical con will do this. There is always slight of hand, and just trust me and just stop thinking so much about it......

            There is a word "Hu" in Sanskrit, I believe, and it was somehow
            associated with rituals. I think during the time of the Vedas. One can
            find it mentioned in connection with rituals like the fire sacrifice,
            or ritual offerings. I'm not completely satisfied with the modern
            definitions because they don't go far enough to explain what exactly
            the word means, what part of the rituals and sacrifices it pertained
            to. At one time I thought I had a handle on the probable meaning, but I
            don't remember if I was ever completely satisfied I knew for sure. Here
            are some examples:

            hu - "call, invoke, invite, summon; offer, sacrifice (Sanskrit).
            Associated spellings:words: huta ['offerings; usually made to a
            fire']."

            Compare that with the Egyptian definition of "Hu" as "authoritative
            utterance" and it looks (to me) like the word "Hu" might pertain simply
            to making a sound. Considering the "sound" of "hu" it is a very common
            one that people were probably uttering since prehistoric times. How it
            ever became associated with things spiritual, or God, I am not prepared
            to say.

            Far as Hebrew goes, one probably needs to consider if Egyptian is
            older. If the Hebrews borrowed the word, or changed the meaning. For
            instance, pronunciation for the Hebrew Tetragrammaton - "YHVH" was
            declared to be secret, unknown, or the correct pronunciation known only
            to the high priest of the temple and that it was eventually forgotten
            to history. This is why other words and names are used in it's place.
            Such as Ha Shem, meaning "the name".

            I did a whole page on available history for Hu (and related words)
            once, but I can't say that I really subscribe to ANY of them as being
            100 percent accurate. Nevertheless, if anybody wants a reference page
            showing what people have said, go here.

            Btw, I have seen a number of words from Sanskrit and Hebrew that are
            similar in sound and meaning. Hard to say who borrowed from who though.
            However, one thing to keep in mind is the Babylonian captivity of
            certain Hebrew tribes. Babylon was closer to Persia and Persia closer
            to India. What I am saying is that there were relations and influences
            back and forth between Persia and India. Consider Avestan and Sanskrit.
            So when the Israelites were captive in Babylon and later freed by (Was
            it Darius?) it is quite possible they picked up words, history and
            traditions from those areas. Not only possible, but probable.

            Hu seems to be similar to the Greek Eu, etc., with the basic meaning of
            "good". sanskrit also has a prefix Su- with the basic meaning of
            "good". In Avestan I believe there was Vohu Manu; with Vohu meaning
            "good".

            OK. So consider this. When people today make a big to do about
            something, when they cheer, etc., a very common expression is Whoo!
            Hooo! (Say it isn't so.) And to tell you the truth I think this sound,
            that of "huuuu" could have probably been used in a similar way so many
            years ago. And in that case it is just a sound, or a reaction, a form
            of expression used by people who get excited - like during rituals in
            the olden days!

            It's just a guess. A hunch.

            eu-

            word-forming element in modern use meaning "good, well," from comb.
            form of Greek eus "good," eu "well" (adv.), also "luckily, happily,"
            from PIE *(e)su- "good" (cf. Sanskrit su- "good," Avestan hu- "good").

            Do you know if it is true that some forms of Judaism believe that all
            languages evolved from Hebrew. If so, I don't see HU as part of their
            spirituality, and is this discussed in eckankar. I don't recall. I do
            though recall some eck book using Genesis as proof of God creating the
            earth with the Word. This is a very Biblical approach. And of course
            their are no ancient texts of eckankar to provide proof for anything,
            except supposedly on the astral or whatever. All of this is a lot like
            the basis of Mormonism, the gold plates that mysteriously disappeared.

            The typical con will do this. There is always slight of hand, and just
            trust me and just stop thinking so much about it......

              Thanks, very impressive analysis. I did find that hu in Hebrew and Arabic means "he", referring to a male. And then there is Allah hu Akbar, God is Great and also a he.

              Hoo is an interesting sound and as you say, it is a very common sound or utterance. If voicing a certain sound is so powerful, I think it would be common knowledge and heavily studied by scientists. It could also be simply the sound of a dove, which I have found to be quite a lovely sound and is more like "whoooo".

              The way eckists pronounce hu (hue) sounds kind of like a Southern version, and since Twitch was from the South, it may have just been his Southern accent and eckists are just clueless that they are pronouncing it wrong.

              Non ; )
