Searching for Truth
In the Journey of Spiritual Discovery Survey, members of Eckankar responded to questions about their experiences. An ECKist from Canada gave the response below to, What unanswered spiritual questions did you have PRIOR to finding ECKANKAR?
What am I doing here? What’s the purpose of life? What is life? How can I know the truth of life? Why does every religion and teaching I explore seem to hit a wall? Isn’t there some teaching somewhere that goes all the way? What are the keys, the secrets, that most teachings don’t seem to know?
Sri Harold Klemp has written eloquently about the seeker’s journey and sense of longing. In the following excerpt from his book Spiritual Exercises for the Shariyat, Book One, he offers a way to discover your own truth.
For a New Approach to Life
By Harold Klemp
Do you have a problem or a question you would like to get beyond? In contemplation, sing HU for several minutes, and open your heart to divine love.
In your Spiritual Eye, see the Light of ECK entering your inner being and reorganizing the atoms of your thoughts and habits. The sparkling Light of ECK soothes and uplifts you in spirit. Continue this exercise for fifteen to twenty minutes or more.
Watch for a subtle feeling of lightness in your heart and mind as you go about your day.
