For Alignment with God

Spir_Exer_Shariyat_1By Harold Klemp

“If the Mahanta bestows gifts upon the solicitor, then he is the most fortunate of the fortunates for it means that he basks in the favor of the Living ECK Master and seeks nothing further in life. He has met and found the true Vi-Guru, and must now start his spiritual journey to God.

“All Souls struggling to find their way to the true path of God—the way of Eckankar—will eventually seek out the Living ECK Master. Each will come to know that life itself is the elemental part of ECK, and it is only because of the will of the Sugmad that all Souls have existence.”

—Shariyat-Ki-Sugmad, Bk. 1, pp. 106–7

Make a list of all your desires—spiritual, financial, home and family, health—whatever comes to you.

Then put the list aside, and sing HU softly to yourself. In your Spiritual Eye, imagine the HU bringing the atoms of Soul into alignment with God.

After this exercise, look at your list again. Next to each item write a word or two about how that particular desire may relate to Soul’s desire for God.
