      Hello All,
      I was reading where Klemp
      had quoted from his newly
      redundant book, The Call
      of Soul. He was talking, once
      again, about being "creative"
      and about the creative ability
      of Soul. It seems Klemp is
      giving this a revised spin by
      saying one's "creative ability
      is survival."

      HK: "... most of the time
      we find ourselves in trouble
      that we've made for ourselves."

      ME: Like when someone dies
      or we get sick with the flu or
      with cancer and we get laid
      off or our job gets outsourced
      to China, etc.

      HK: "... someone with the
      golden heart is someone
      who lives in the presence
      of God.. That means you
      pay more attention to the
      needs of other people than
      to your own. It doesn't mean
      neglecting your own needs
      of course."

      ME: Right. You have to take
      care of yourself first but how
      or why does one pay "more
      attention to the needs of other
      people" than to one's own
      needs, health, family, job
      etc? Who has the time and
      money to do as Klemp suggests?

      What does HK know about
      real life when he hasn't
      worked in a real job for
      over 40 years? I know Klemp
      needs his volunteer sales
      team but this spiel is
      ridiculous!

      HK: "Until you become a
      strong human being able
      to survive under any and
      all conditions you're never
      going to be able to help
      anyone else. In Eckankar
      we want to see people
      develop into strong human
      beings. This is the path
      for the strong."

      ME: And what about the
      qualities that produce this
      strength? Klemp never talks
      about empathy and seldom
      discusses compassion or
      strength of character. Yet,
      EKists are supposed to be
      "strong" and "be able to
      survive under any and all
      conditions."

      I guess that EKists are
      used to filling in the blanks
      and the gaps that Klemp
      overlooks or is incapable
      of seeing. Their imaginations
      and pretend "spiritual"
      techniques help to renew
      their faith with fictitious
      beliefs and unreliable
      (and typically religious)
      promises. But, if one reads
      between the lines, doesn't
      it seem like Klemp might
      be building an underground
      bunker for himself (and a
      select few) and encouraging
      other EKists to do the same?
