ECKANKAR—The Path of Spiritual Freedom

The Hero’s Journey

By Sri Harold Klemp

Have you ever felt a hunger for something you can’t even put words to?

What if you are actually on a journey—a quest—that has spanned the ages, continents, lifetimes? It has survived victories, tragedies, wealth and poverty, unimaginable gains and losses. Death and rebirth time and again.

The journey is worth everything. Because you are the hero, and your saga continues until the quest is fulfilled.

Three Ways to Regain Emotional Balance

Should I give Her My Money?By Harold Klemp

If you are faced with negative attitudes about people, how can you feel the love of the Mahanta? Here are three ways:

  1. If you meet someone that you have negative feelings about, silently say to yourself, “In the name of the Sugmad.” Repeat this phrase to yourself each time this occurs, blessing the situation and letting it go.
  2. Be polite when these people are near you, but chant HU silently within yourself. Listen to them while you chant, rather than getting into a long conversation with them. Say as little as possible while still remaining cordial.
  3. In your imagination, see the Mahanta near you.

When you bless a situation, you keep yourself in balance and do not become involved in the negative conditions. In addition, if you are a true channel for the ECK, miracles will take place around you.

The Angel on the Bus

By Mimi, Oklahoma

A dear friend and I traveled from Oklahoma to Minneapolis for the annual ECK Springtime Seminar. Unfortunately, due to weather, our direct flight was canceled, and instead we had to take two flights, through Atlanta, to get to the seminar. I had been suffering from an inner-ear/dizziness problem for the last four years, and this was my first trip away from home. So, keeping my energy level and balance intact was critical. By the time we got through two bumpy flights and waited forty-five minutes for the hotel shuttle at the Minneapolis airport, my “low-energy-level light” was flashing red; I was very drained and had an upset stomach.

Be Yourself and Serve Life

By Harold Klemp

“Cecile” attended workshops at an ECK Worldwide Seminar and focused upon her mission: Be yourself and serve life.

Drawn to the park across from the site of the seminar, the Minneapolis Convention Center, she came upon a joyful wedding party gathered for photographs, while golden sunlight splashed the autumn leaves overhead. But the perfection of the moment was suddenly broken.

An angry bicyclist was cursing a car parked at the curb in front of the park’s entrance. It was blocking the bike lane.

The driver emerged from the car, explaining, “I’m trying to get these ninety-year-old people out of the car.” Then he added, “God bless.” Cecile guessed the passengers were the proud grandparents of the bride and groom. The harsh scolding of the bicyclist had opened the door for her to clear the air by offering an act of kindness to comfort the family.

“Here, let me help you,” she said. Read More
