Animals and Heaven

ECKANKAR, Animals, heaven, Spiritual UnfoldmentBy Harold Klemp

Q: When animals meet their goal, do they become ECK Masters the way we do?  Where is heaven?  What is heaven?

A: Souls in animal forms do not get the initiations as we do.  Their spiritual unfoldment is handled in other ways.

Animals can follow their own path to mastership if they want to.  Only through the lower worlds, though.  For example, earth allows several levels for Soul to gain experiences in life, including the mineral, plant, fish, animal, and human stages.

But there’s no fixed spiritual law about a rock having to stay a rock.  Or a daisy staying a daisy.

By choice, though, most Souls want to taste life at all levels.  They do go from the lower to higher body forms.  So animals could move up to human.  Yet that would take many lifetimes. Read More

A Good Star

By Philippe, Quebec, Canada

In August 2013, I had a work accident in my right shoulder. I was not working for many months but I kept my salary. As usual, the company I work for did contest the work accident and they took me to court. I was highly stressed since I’ve never been to court before.

A month before I was scheduled to testify, before I went to bed, I talked to the Mahanta, the Living ECK Master and told him, “Here Mahanta, I put at your feet all my stress, my worries and all the documents concerning the court.” I did this many times during the month. Read More

Pure Love

Santa Monica 4_lrBy Harold Klemp

Q: What is the difference between the love one has for one’s mate and the love Soul has for God?

Is one sort of love better than the other?  And is it still possible to fall in love with someone after you reach God Consciousness?

A: The highest love is a pure love for God.

A pure love for one’s mate is the same as a pure love for God.  There is no difference.  But, frankly, pure love is a rarity—whether for God or for mate.

“Falling in love” usually means falling into karma.  Karma—good, bad, or neutral—sets the tone for a relationship.  For example, some couples love to fight.

The attraction between people of a high state of consciousness is a mutual desire to serve God and life.  Such a couple join forces to help each other reach even higher states of being.

A high, pure love is sweet indeed.

Excerpted from Youth Ask a Modern Prophet about Life, Love, and God.

Love Times Two Equals Wisdom

By Marty, Missouri

It’s now May, and in our household, we have four beings that put out fur, and two beings that collect the fur and clean up after the four. It seems we are outnumbered. How did that happen?

Two years ago our beloved male cat, Nico, had a marked decline in health. We thought his decline was temporary, and followed the vet’s option to put in a feeding tube. Years earlier I decided that using a feeding tube for a loved one was a “line in the sand” that I never wanted to cross. Now I was crossing that line. Through round-the-clock duty of feeding Nico every four hours for six weeks, both my wife and I received an abundance of love, and developed a stronger relationship. On the drive to the vet during Nico’s last hour, my wife kindly suggested we play the HU song. She knew the HU song, which is a way to express and be filled with divine love, would help me feel calm.
