How Can I Be in Alignment with Divine Spirit?
This clip—and the transcript below—is from Harold Klemp’s 2009 talk “The Secret Path to Heaven.”
I’d like to start with some questions from the youth, because they’re always challenging.
Well, life has a wonderful way of nudging us back on track. The mind has a very natural tendency to want to go back to the track it came from. That’s the mind. So the experiences in life will see us having a good time—easy going, easy rolling. Then suddenly things will turn around and go wrong.
All of a sudden an individual says, Help, Master, I want to get out of this.
The Master says, Pay your dues and stick around. Put your attention where it belongs again. Try to get those habits back on the right track, and all things shall be well with thee.
And so it goes. We get bumped off track. Then we have to go climbing back up. It’s like a long, high grade to get back on the track.
Finally we get there, and everything is going well. We’re dancing along, moving, and having quite a good time. And all of a sudden, we slip off. It’s like slipping off a mountain road and landing, luckily, on a road beneath us. And the long, painful climb starts over again.
So, how can you keep your inner fire alive?
I would say, Don’t worry about it. Life will take care of it. The Mahanta’s working with you. Whenever you get too far off track, you’ll get nudged right back on. It’s just the way life is.
