Spiritual Exercise: Show Me Love
By Harold Klemp
If you don’t know anything about ECK, the main tool you have to work with at this point may be prayer—your communication with God. If you are sincerely interested in truth, in knowing who you are and why you belong here, ask God in your prayers: “Show me truth.”
If your heart is pure, the Lord will bring truth into your life. But don’t expect it to come in a way that fits your expectations; it may come in a different way. It may come through the gift of a book or by way of a person telling you one small step that you need to take before you can go to the next step.
And so you can pray to God. Just say, “I want truth,” or “Dear Lord, give me knowledge, wisdom, and understanding.” But the greatest thing you could ask is: “Dear Lord, give me love.”
Knowledge, wisdom, and understanding are only the attributes of God. But when you have love, you have the whole thing. We seek first the highest, most divine, most sacred part of something which is nothing other than our own inner being. And with this come the attributes of God and the spiritual liberation, which is something no baptism can ever bring.
When you ask for truth with a pure heart, Divine Spirit will take you one step closer to coming home to God.
