Re: Why do people see Rebazar?
- By the way Al I really enjoyed your satire of Rebazar and the guys. I
think it they are real beings they would find it hilarious too! To
answer your question of why I left Eckankar:
I just couldn't be a part of a path that curses its members if they
decide to leave. It goes contrary to the values I hold dearest which
are freedom of choice and self responsibility. Let's get serious here
for a second. Eckankar is supposed to be a path of Love. The threats
and curses are religious type control tactics. The threats themselves
merely through the power of suggestion have caused some people
considerable anguish and I'm sure even driven others to suicide. What
kind of love is it that curses a person for wanting to explore other
options in life? It is part of the learning and growing process to
want to explore when one is not satisified with what they are
I thought there was a tendency for Eckists too become too dependent
on the Mahanta to the detriment of relying on themselves to
spiritually unfold. Although it is stated in the teachings not to
worship the Mahanta or put him on a pedestal there are far too many
suggestions in the books and the discourses to contradict that. A
student can always use a good teacher but when that individual subtly
puts themself in a position of authority and control the student
disempowers himself. The true connection between God and the
individual is not an intercessor but the Higher Self which becomes
The outer organisation was becoming more and more like a religion.
What started as an exciting journey into higher states of
consciousnes became more and more stale and stagnant. Even the name
of the path became known as the Religion of the Light and the Sound.
The services on Sunday became Worship services. The services were
becoming repetitious, mundane, and uninspiring like the personality
of its leader HK. Everything was becoming more and more geared
towards recruiting members.
The initiations were generally meaningless. They had little to do
with spiritual unfoldment and much more to do with how much time and
service were devoted to the outer organisation. I can give you an
example from my own experience. When I first joined Eckankar I got to
know the local RESA very well and got my second and third initiations
very quickly. I gradually became disinterested and completely
uninvolved with the outer organisation and low and behold I did not
get my fourth initiation for years. One day I decided to call the
head office about the situation. I knew they didn't like it if one
requested an initiation so I went about it in a different way. I told
the person in spiritual services that I wasn't requesting an
initiation but was simply wondering why I hadn't gotten an initiation
in such a long period of time and left it at that. And presto within
a month I got the pink slip for my next initiation! Seems they lost
track of me simply because I wasn't involved with the outer
And the last but not least reason I left is because as they say you
can really know something through experience so I wanted to go
through quitting to see if the curses are for real (LOL).

- Hi All,
Eckists want to see Rebazar and that's why they do, BUT never on the
physical Plane! Why is it that a Master over 500 years old, in the
same physical body, has never been seen in the physical? The answer
is that Rebazar is actually Twitchell's former Radhasoami master
(Kirpal Singh) and that Twitchell made much of it all up!
Also, Twitchell's original descriptions of Yaubl and Fubbi don't
match the drawings Klemp promotes, therefore, Eckists only see these
Eck Masters appearing as they are drawn and described by Klemp and
Not by Twitchell! This is more proof that these, and all, Eck
Masters are phoney creations of a religious scam!
However, why do people see "masters" or angels, etc. and even see
them prior to seeing the drawings or pictures of them? There are
many answers to this phenomenon and some are psychological and some
are spiritual. Also, this phenomenon is Not limited to Eckankar or
even to religion per se. However, a strong belief and focus by the
mind will influence (and distort) one's reality.
The physicalogical/psychological reasons for these paranormal
visitations or visions can be extremely varied and depends upon the
individual's mental health or lack of. It is a sliding scale
that has many facets including diet, sleep, and stress! And, just
look at Klemp's meeting with the two "eck masters" on the bridge
before his leap!
Another explanation for these experiences (of visions and
vistations) is that Soul is using the mind for communication with
Itself! Soul will use whatever means (images and belief) available
and accepted by the mind. And, since Soul is Not limited by time or
space this is why some "inner" experiences can take place before the
actual physical event. Anyway, it's an interesting topic, BUT
Eckists are really delusional and ego bound if they believe that
this is a phenomenon exclusive to Eckankar, that it gives validity
to the Eck teachings, or that it makes them unique or superior.
didn't I hear somewhere that Rebazar's portrait was based on Burt
LOL well you heard correctly. Apparently Diana Stanley had a
on Burt and made Rubber Tires in his image, among others, her own
brother (according to him) is one of the Masters too....
