The Amazing Truth About Paul Twitchell & Eckankar (pre-1971)
Paul Twitchell The God Man
Paul Twitchell who’s spiritual name is Peddar Zask was a widely traveled out of body traveler to the far reaches of "the far country" or what most people call “heaven”. As there are many levels of heaven which he called spiritual planes Paul Twitchell having learned out of body travel as a three year old child with the help of his sister and father and then later under the guidance of Rebazar Tarz (an Ancient VARDAN Master), learned to become a true expert at leaving his physical body for out of body travel (similar to those who have near death experiences).
As a result of Paul Twitchell's spiritual mastery in out of body travel he eventually learned to move far beyond the lower heavens of duality and reincarnation where soul is spiritually educated but unknowingly enslaved.
With the help of his Spiritual Teacher Rebazar Tarzs Paul Twitchell was guided one on one during his spiritual exercises to develop the spiritual ability to expand his spiritual and God knowledge by nightly visiting various levels of heaven with brilliant white light, magnificent sound and total freedom. These heavens far beyond the lower worlds are called “the Pure Positive God Worlds”. The Pure positive God Worlds have no duality and are composed of pure spirit. Here the individual is in a state of total awareness and seeing, knowing, and being.
In the pure positive God Worlds are many levels, starting with the heaven of Self Realization or the 5th plane. (not to be confused with what some call the 5th dimension) It is also called the Soul Plane. Here the individual awakens to his true nature as a God being becoming more and more conscious of his place in the spiritual universes.
As we move to higher spiritual planes we later come upon what is called the 10th heaven or Anami Lok far into the pure positive God Worlds. This is the first plane of God Realization where Soul has conscious full awareness of the HURAY ITSELF (God) and is in a state of total awareness or God Awareness. This state of awareness intensifies and deepens as soul nears the 12th plane which is called the Ocean of Love and Mercy, the very heart and home of the divine being, HURAY (God).
When the Soul Reaches this region it reaches a higher level of Spiritual Mastership as a conscious Coworker with the essences of the Universe, the HURAY.
It was here in these high worlds of brilliant light, other worldly sound and pure spirit that Paul Twitchell left his physical body and with the help and guidance of Rebazar Tarzs, Paul Twitchell came to this magnificent realm to have a direct experience of the HURAY (God). This is why some refer to him as "the God Man" because it was given to him as a spiritual mission to first experience this state himself and then guide others to experience it. This direct experience he had of out of body traveling for it's highest purpose to return to God ITSELF in the God Realm where by one reaches “God Realization.” It is both an experience and a state of consciousness where one’s awareness is centered in God itself while living life. Paul Twitchell essentially lived like the saying "My feet are on Earth but my heart is in heaven."
One of the dilemmas of living in the physical world is that there are many false Gurus whose motivations are discolored by the five vices such as greed, vanity, and anger or negativity. In India there was for example a Guru who claimed to have God Realization and led many followers. He had forty luxury cars and drove though the streets past people stricken with poverty. Other "Masters" claiming God Realization are entangled with vanity, they loose their spiritual focus and take great pleasure or pride in personality worship calling themselves Masters when they are not. This is in essence a form of idolatry when we put vanity or any personalty or thing between ourselves and God. And then there are other Gurus who lose focus on spiritual reality as the most important focus and instead focus on anger, attacking with words people of other faiths, beliefs or religions. Their words are filled with venom and they obsess about the "evilness" in everyone but themselves. It is the opposite of what Jesus and other God beings said to "Love thy neighbor as thyself." All of the negative passions are only distractions from true spirituality which is a state of instead being obsessed with only spirituality of itself and God.
Paul Twitchell on the other hand focused on being as much as possible a vehicle of God's love, power, wisdom and grace to his students. He loved them and cared about them. He could see from the level of Soul or the Soul records how all his students who had countless lives in the lower worlds and how some of them strived greatly or deeply longed to return to God. He deeply cared about them and their spiritual well being through out eternity. His entire existence was one continuous action to help his students free themselves spiritually. Paul Twitchell was a true God Realized VARDAN Master and as a result he cared very deeply and loved his students as God loves them. This is why he spent countless hours answering their letters, writing lots of discourses and books and traveling across the globe to assist individuals.
Since during a Kali Yuga (dark age) we are in now only one in every one hundred people or less will be spiritually awake enough to have the knowingness to recognize a true God man like Paul Twitchell. This is because in Kali Yugas idolatry or the worship of ideas, opinions, dogma and personality worship is rampant. Often many do not recognize the importance of God ITSELF nor God Realization. Idolatry is the putting of anything between oneself and God. Many often view the God being through the (not) rose colored but dark colored glasses of perception of duality, anger, and human consciousness.
Unfortunately anger patterns or attachment to opinion block the individual from being able to do out of body travel and discover for himself if a being is truly a God Realized being. The simplest way to do this is to stop the loud voices in the head, the questions, criticisms, and opinions of one’s mind and see, know, and be as though we were already in the realms of great light and sound such as the soul plane and then simply know or listen to the “still small voice within” of divine spirit who will give us a knowingness, a sense of serene peace, and total awareness. This is how one will “know” one is a true God being.
I came across two individuals both studied several of Paul Twitchell’s offshoot teachings. One student came to the spiritual teacher and wrote that he had asked Paul Twitchell himself on the inner planes for guidance and direction. He gave the Ancient God Realized VARDAN Masters permission to work with him, unattached to his former religion and opinions he put himself in the childlike state of imaginative playful flow of letting images, impressions, and inner experiences or dreams come to him like soft cool ocean waves carrying him to a deeper awareness.
It was then that Paul Twitchell guided him to Paul’s true successor for ways to make spiritual progress himself. Those who are called “Spiritual Travelers” or VARDAN Masters cannot help the individual unless they are given permission. This is a spiritual law called the law of non interference. Next, the second individual on the other hand was obsessed in his mind. The mind is a highly useful tool until it is used to throw the individual off his inner compass. In this case the individual was angry and filled with endless angry questions. He expressed great anger that Harold Klemp, Dwane, and the all the different people who claimed to be “Masters” that he was once a student of all claimed to be the highest and true God Realized Master, the Living VARDAN Master but are all false Masters and frauds. He was very angry and threw a small tantrum at the feet of a true God Man with a barrage of bitter questions that he demanded answers to.
He didn’t realize that his critical anger and attachment to opinions was keeping him from shifting to a higher vibration consciousness or doing out of body travel to the higher realms to see and know for himself what was the best course of action. He wanted to know who was the true guide among all the horrible false Masters. He longed to know who would be a truer guide to him. The world is filled with people all claiming to know the highest truth and be the highest master leading one to God or spiritually exalted states but instead of wasting time obsessing over the flaws of all of the false gurus who are students like ourselves, struggling to overcome their spiritual lessons, we are often from my experience better off letting go. With the tight gates of the mind unlocked we can swim out of the state of being lost in a sea of confusion. We are often better off becoming determined to find true spiritual freedom.
Most individuals would never know a God being if he stood right in front of them which was the case with Paul Twitchell who was a true God man or God Realized soul. A huge misunderstanding about God Realization is that many will assume that the God Realized person must be perfect in body, mind, speech, social morals and so on. It is the misconception of believing that the person is perfect in the human state such as perhaps they would in the human body glow or float and have no human faults and make no human mistakes.
Some would then say for example that the Indian Guru who never dirties himself among the people instead living in the protected, clean ashram and his food being brought to him by disciples as he is meditating all day is more holy and “God Realized” then Paul Twitchell who Lived among people as a reporter, gotten into a couple fights, embellished or even on a few occasions lied, yet in spite of human imperfections he was incredibly Godly and focused upon God day and night. He mastered exceptional out of body travel to the heavenly realms of God, devoted his life to spiritual service of souls returning to God and shared spiritual insight with people around the entire globe.
Additionally Paul Twitchell poured a great outflow of light sound and love to his students unlike anything they had ever experienced before like a river of light and sound from God ITSELF.
The being who claims to be the “God Realized Guru” in the Ashram may have his hands clean and undirtied by showing less so called social moral flaws by insulating himself from the outside world but in fact he may in many cases only have Astral Realization. While Paul on the other hand who lived among people, dirtied himself, made common human mistakes and had human imperfections was on the inner a true expert and Master at out of body travel, gave many people a great deal of love and expressed a very high state of God Awareness or God Consciousness in the Ocean of Love and Mercy.
This baffles those who are stuck in the lower bodies such as their minds. Many find it difficult the idea of excepting that even if you have human flaws you can realize God. This is sometimes why Masters may appear in the guise of homeless person as it defies their preconceptions and prejudices of what a God Being should be.
It is the idea that one must be like a perfect deity or demi god to be capable of experiencing God. And that this demigod personality must be worshiped to the point of idolatry. Many believe one must be an inhuman, perfect saint. The negative power uses this illusion to make the individual believe that he will never be perfect enough or good enough to experience God. He will never be worthy. He may be convinced that only a long dead saint whom he has great psychological distance can achieve such a state.
At one time one women commented that shouldn’t one have to wait until they have a clean bedroom before they can have God Consciousness? If this were true that Martha Stewart would probably be the Master immediately. Another person commented that you have to become very physically fit before becoming God Realized. Some people confuse perfection in the human consciousness with perfection in the God Consciousness. Their barometer for assessing God beings is set to the lower world.
One God Realized Master once told me that many of his long standing friends weren't capable of seeing that he became God Realized because he said "familiarity breeds contempt." This essentially means that his friends saw his human imperfections and that he was just a "normal guy" they see all the time. Some false gurus abuse this principle by creating great distance and being unavailible like only showing up once a year to see his students so the guru will look more mysterious with an air of being not quite human but more of a deity. It may be like since the students never see them more then once or twice a year they have an air of pseudo spiritual perfection because we see them always from afar. From my inner understandings Paul Twitchell had human imperfections but Paul Twitchell is and was a true God being, a God Realized soul who was selected to help train others to reach this state themselves.
