Agelessly Fascinating—”ECKANKAR—The Key to Secret Worlds”

Agelessly Fascinating—ECKANKAR—The Key to Secret WorldsBy Linda, Minnesota

Where do you look for answers? Do you identify as spiritual but not religious? Have you had puzzling spiritual experiences? Do you want something different than the conventional religions and churches of your childhood?

When I was in my early thirties, I had similar questions and desires. I’d grown up with a traditional religious education. Its beliefs were handed down to me like a quickly spent spiritual inheritance. For three years I’d searched for the right path. I enjoyed Transcendental Meditation; it put me into a soothing state of bliss. But during the stillness of meditating, spiritual longings stirred again. I hadn’t yet found satisfactory explanations for life, death, suffering, and heaven. Read More

A Taxi Driver’s Answered Prayer

A Taxi Driver's Answered PrayerBy Harold Klemp

Every month Sophia and a friend go from Mexico City to Guadalajara to teach a Satsang class. They’re Higher Initiates. The flight takes about an hour each way. When they arrive back home, they get a taxi.

One time they found that their taxi driver was a woman. This is very unusual in Mexico, so they commented on it to their driver. They said, “Very unusual, but we’re happy to have you.”

They started going to their respective homes. As they were driving along, the cab driver overheard them talking in back. She said, “Do you teach a class?” They said, “Yes, we do.” “A class on what?” Read More

Taking the Next Step

Eckankar’s sacred scriptures, The Shariyat-Ki-Sugmad, speak of  ECK Masters. They are advanced spiritual beings who far exceed the normal human capacity for giving and receiving divine love and yet continue to spiritually evolve. They help others use imagination, among other spiritual gifts, to embark upon journeys of self-discovery and freedom.

This inspiring  passage from The Shariyat-Ki-Sugmad, Book Two, and the spiritual exercise that follows it, offers a simple way to exercise the creative ability of Soul, the eternal self. Limitless possibilities dwell within the Ocean of Love and Mercy—source of the life-giving Light and Sound of God.

A Swan Sign after My Sister’s Passing

A Swan Sign after My Sister's PassingBy Marie-Antoinette, Germany

My elder sister was very ill.

One day, my brother phoned to update me on her condition. As we talked, I felt a very strong nudge from the Mahanta, the Inner Master, to visit my sister as quickly as possible.

Although we lived in different countries, I immediately made the necessary arrangements to see her.

When I arrived, I could see she was near the end of her life. Standing by her bedside, my heart filled with so much love and gratitude for our time together. Silently, I opened myself to God’s love by singing HU, an ancient song of love for God. Then my sister took her last breath and left this life. Read More

Feed My Kangaroos

By Harold Klemp

On the inner planes I met a number of ECKists who worked on a farm. They were bringing in hay from the fields, all the while looking up at the sky which was full of rain clouds. I was sitting on a tractor not far from the field when one of the ECKists spotted me. Read More

I Am Always with You

ECKANKAR, Harold Klemp, Spiritual Leader, Inner MasterEckankar conducted a “Journey of Spiritual Discovery” survey that asked questions about ECKists’ experiences. A survey question was “What unanswered spiritual questions did you have PRIOR to finding Eckankar?” The responses of one ECKist seem to reflect a world where many people have lost their heart connections. This person recalled asking, “Am I loved? Am I worthy? Am I alone in this?”

In the following story Linda, an ECKist in Nigeria, shares a personal experience that answered these questions for her. Read More

Breaking Down the Walls

By Harold Klemp

Sometime in contemplation or in prayer, maybe as a spiritual exercise, in your mind’s eye just see a room with three distinct parts. A semicircular room where you are at the point of the room and the room curves out around you, divided into three parts. You can look into each one: past, present, and future. But there is a wall separating each of the three parts.

Dissolve those two walls between those three parts and see what happens. Read More

The Middle Path

By Harold Klemp

If this letter were to have a title, it would be “The String of Life.” It’s about detachment, being neither too much for nor against anything—the middle path. Living does entail putting ourselves into life. But not blindly or rashly. Read More
