To Allow the ECK to Clear the Way

To Allow the ECK to Clear the WayBy Harold Klemp

The Mahanta appears again in this world to gather up Souls to return to the true heavenly home. Wherever he goes and whatever he does, the great ECK power clears the way like the whirling winds of a storm.

The Shariyat-Ki-Sugmad, Book One, p. 180

What challenge do you face in your personal or spiritual life?

As clearly as possible, see this situation playing out in a “Situation Room” on the inner planes. As the challenge gets under way, imagine you hear the whirling winds of a storm approaching. The sound may get very loud, and gusts may begin to disturb the activity in the room.

Soon, nothing can be seen but the great ECK power as it clears the way and breaks up the old order.

You may find that you feel refreshed and at peace when the winds die down. Watch as a new order begins to take its form from the spirituality of Soul.

From Spiritual Exercises for the Shariyat, Book One, p. 132.

    as I read these inspiring stories, a worry of my own became clearer. A young extended family member is seemingly lost as high school is ending and continuing his education is almost impossible as he did not enjoy school and is in danger of not graduating. His father is also caught up in his sons struggle trying to find the way to help. Neither of these two are Eckest and trying to suggest that the son has his own path to find will not ease the fathers pain. After reading the stories here I realized I may find solution without trying to directly interfere in the paths of the son and father. To be honest, I am not sure what to do next, if anything. But I now remember where to go to ask the question. I found this page by accident, or so I thought at first, but now I know I found these stories by the Mahanta’s design. The power of the love flowing through the ECK has found me again…

    Over a decade ago, I had a major and complex issue that was unrelenting in governing my life. However, I still was aware that I was on the road home in terms of resolution. I had been working hard at moving in a positive direction with the Mahanta’s loving guidance. One morning during this time, upon awakening, prior to readying for work, I immediately jumped back into bed and began my usual spiritual exercise from the Shariyat, in which I surrendered to the ECK. Soon, I found myself sitting in a rocking chair, apparently alone, in what appeared to be a rather weathered one-room log cabin. There was but one window with tattered curtains. A slight wind was moving about the room when the front door opened, and a child entered (who I immediately recognized as the adult creating my present havoc). There was only silence but for the, at first, gentle breezes. I observed the child walk past me, across the length of the room to a back door that I had not noticed until he arrived at it. The wind began to pick up; I could see its movement in the curtains, a sure indicator of Its presence. Although a small room, the door was incongruous with the rest of the structure and components of the room; it was a huge, very darkly hued lead door that appeared more to be more consistent with a heavy storage or bank door… one that when closed secured its content. It must have been ajar since the child walked through and into the dark space. The wind immediately picked up, enveloping the entire room, pushing that door immediately and loudly shut. I knew then there was no escaping for that child. As the wind gushed in more and more, the door slammed shut. There were no handles on the door. It was a solid mass. And, so I could not pull my usual “save the day” routine. My job was done with that Soul. My attention was quickly averted to the wind, which briskly blew through the entirety of the very small room, swinging the front door open… the wind was coupled with great sound… and I awoke from this experience in full awareness. I wrote it down in my dream journal with the pervading feeling of grand relief. I felt cleansed, free of what had been, and ready to move on to a new way of being. And, so IT is. Today I am attempting to write a book about “The Wind” since it has been my constant companion since my very wee years as a child. I am forever grateful for the Love. I have no other word with which to describe this constant embrace the Wind… May the Blessings Be

    I love the spiritual exercise suggested above because it offers me the opportunity to clean up mental, emotional and physical clutter. It really shows me how the ECK works cleaning our consciousness from whatever that is not needed in our state of consciousness.
    It is an awesome spiritual exercise to clear our vision and our way in order to be a vehicle for the ECK, the Mahanta and the Sugmad.
    May the blessings be!

    Thank you Wah-Z!


    Thanks, I feel much better. I needed to have smile on my lips. Thanks Wah Z.

    As I read this, a loud sound came from the next room. It sounded and felt like the storm you described. I am now at peace.

    Thank you Mahanta.

  6. Sue says:

    What a wonder imagery. I can’t wait to try it. Thank you

  7. Nnena says:

    It is a truism. Nothing in life compares to the Eck, It is unstoppable to defend and protect its own, It is real. Love this Wah Z.


    I love this spiritual exercise, I really need it right now. Thank you Mahanta.

  9. Jean Cokou Tossa says:

    Tears of gratitude! Thank you, dear Mahanta! I do love you,

    I’ve planned to do this same exercise this morning. I looked through the SESKS and couldn’t find it. Nevertheless, I tried to recall what I’ve read previously. This was what I wrote in my journal: “At times when asked about goals, problematic situations, I can’t come up with one. Sometimes I think that particular issue is not a big deal and if I practice discipline everything would turn out well.”

    Then a few minutes into FaceBook, there it is! The very exercise I was looking for! This time, the challenges I face in my personal and spiritual life were answered without hesitation! LOL! Experiences such as this happen to me every now and then. It affirms I am on the right track. Thank you, Mahanta.

    Thanks you very much mahanta – once again I realised you are always with me.

    For your information – during the travelling time_ when I searched for ECK books for tune myself with eck., unfortunately no book in my car right now.

    Asked mahanta inwardly – what do I do now? Spark within me_ and advised me to check eckankar website for seed for contemplation., but automatically my fingers typed eckankar blogspot site – as well as found the above exercise – I read with tears say my gratitude to mahanta. NANDRI

    Wah-Z, the Eck will always nudge one towards what we need to find answers to our problems. More than a zillion time plus this one you present a Spiritual Exercise that will provide me respite from the heavy storms that I face in my life. And I feel deep down that you are handing it to me personally. Thank you. I accept with both hands. Like one bright Soul before me, I off you dispell the storm with your help.

    I love you!

    Thank you Mahanta for these priceless tools to help us ride the waves back home to God.
    Thank you Moses for sharing your very inspiring experience too.
    I actually just needed this reminder that all i need is around me.
    May the blessings be.

    I still wondering how it would be for me if I did not know the teachings of ECKANKAR. Honestly, I could say that it is a merit to be ECKist !

    This seed of contemplation requires Spiritual Exercises, absolute trust and total surrender to the Mahanta. No problem is without solution, as full-bodied as it is. When one realizes that Soul – true self – exists because of God ‘s Love, he/she could not have fear. One need to be loyal to the inner master – the Mahanta – who is with all Souls, regardless the religious congregation of which one is apart ; no matter how old we are or our social rank. It is an invaluable gift to realize that everything is at hand for all Souls. It depends on everyone. How does one comply with the rules and principles ?

    Sometimes ago, a member of my family was facing an ambiguous situation in his profession. All the physical interventions seemed to complicate things. A simply situation rather turned bizzares, even political. I even sensed that the attorney felt discouraged. The stress was at its height.
    Sitting in a corner of the courtroom, I confided the whole story in details to the Mahanta; I truly relied on Him (the Mahanta).
    A few minutes later, the judge ordered a few minutes break. I had had a brief, but deep sleep.
    When the hearing resumed, the initial order of things has changed. The judge declared that we were not concerned, not involved in anything. We were cleansed of all suspicion. The Wind died down. I sincerely recognized Mahanta’s hand. ECK is Light; ECK is Sound that drives out the darkness. Indeed, we did feel refreshed and at peace, since the winds died down.

    Personnaly, I know that the Mahanta can definitely change the world, if He deems it necessary!

    True, ECK Spiritual Exercises and the ways of ECK are loaded with divine love that can resolve any situation in seconds!

    Whenever I face situation, I use the technique. You know, Wah Z!

    Thank you so much. I remain grateful!

    Now I know why I enjoy certain storms for the freshness they bring. A much needed spiritual exercise. Off to try..

    Thanks very much Harji for this wonderful problem solving do-it-yourself spiritual tool.
    Often we are quick to forget that The ECK has provided us with great potentials to ride the wave to a more richer and happier spiritual life.
    Challenges would hit us from all corners leaving us drained of energy.
    We cry for help.
    Help is always there but our attention has been on the problem itself instead of being on the solution.
    The spiritual exercise discussed above could prove to a great antidote for any life’s challenge(s).
    But a lot depends largely on our ATTITUDE.
    I have been going through huge challenges that could fire up ones blood pressure.
    After my morning’s spiritual exercise, i thought it may be nice to once again write to The MASTER just mentioning these things by way of surrendering these whole stuff to the ECK.
    While on the letter to Wah Z, my son ran into my room reporting that his Mum could no longer walk.
    As i got to the living room, she was in a real bad shape. She was in so much pains and could move any part of her body. So i helped her to the couch wondering what would have gone wrong with a woman that got up healthy that morning to get the kids ready for school.
    Then i recalled that i was still on my letter to The MASTER. Okay, i would add this as well, i said. After all, there was no cash for hospital bills.
    When i was done with the letter and went back to the living room, she wasn’t there.
    Where could she be. Then i heard her voice from the kitchen. When i opened the kitchen door, i was shocked to see her doing the chores.
    What happened? She had no idea.
    So these things work. Wow. That was great. Supper fast.
    The MASTER has provided us with lots of spirit tools to make our lives better and happier.
    But most times when trouble comes, it takes away our head from the shoulder. By the time we remember who we really are, we may have been far deep into lots of crises.
    I am going to again try the spirit exercise mentioned above. It has worked for me in past, its certainly going to work again.
    Thanks very much Wah Z. This is very timely.
