My Test on the Journey Home

My Test on the Journey HomeBy Nancy, Alberta, Canada

In 2015 I experienced a big change in my outer life. On February 4, I was let go from my job after seven years. My first reaction was to prove my value by finding another position immediately. When that did not happen, I began to doubt my value. I was no longer contributing to the household, and over the summer doubt and fear crept in.

Overcoming the Fear of Death

Overcoming the Fear of DeathBy Harold Klemp

If Eckankar can offer people anything, it’s how to get over the fear of death. A woman, who found ECK during Paul Twitchell’s time, disagreed with her former church’s teaching that the dead remained unconscious in a black grave until Judgment Day. In her heart, she simply knew that was untrue. She began a search for books on reincarnation in bookstores and libraries. “Do you know how few books there were on reincarnation twenty years ago?” she asked. But Paul’s message of ECK gave her a hope such as she had never thought to find. He said that Soul is eternal, and that whoever is on “the high path of ECK always dwells in the spiritual planes.”

The consciousness of the public has indeed become broader since then, but death still alarms people. A common belief is that both the good and the evil are in their graves until the Last Day. This means that any of our loved ones who have passed on—father, mother, brother, or sister—are not in heaven at all, but in the ground. Job, the Old Testament figure, must still be there, waiting patiently, thirty-five centuries later. Read More
