2019 ECK Worldwide Seminar and slide show
Realize Your Divine Dream
By Sharon Kunin
Welcome to A Year of Blessing! Sri Harold says, “Bless each moment, each thought, each word, and each deed. Let only the pure love of God flow from you and into your own universe.”
Imagine the year that will bring!
Each seminar appearance of the Mahanta, the Living ECK Master ushers a new current of God’s love into the world, offering a spiritual renovation of the heart for all who love God. Old patterns give way to healing and purification.
These blessings touch all life. Have you discovered your gift?
All for Love
Saturday evening, Sri Harold Klemp greeted a resounding standing ovation with a returning wave of divine love and joy.
The hall was lit from the inside out!
Throughout his talk, “All for Love,” his stories, words of wisdom, humor, and humility put a greater light to Soul. So now— each in our own way—we can reflect this light back to the world!
Here are some highlights from just a few of his stories:
HU to the Rescue
“Joyce” is a clinical psychologist who often sees clients suffering from psychosis due to drug and alcohol abuse. She plays the HU song softly in the background when she’s in session.
One day, a frightened young man told her that demons had followed him all the way there. Joyce asked the Inner Master for guidance. She then firmly reassured the man: “Demons are not allowed in my office.” The young man looked around. No demons! “How’d you do that?” he wanted to know. So Joyce gave him a HU card and told him about this word that protects her. He promised he would practice it.
She recommended treatments and a follow-up appointment. In six months he returned, smiling and relaxed. He now felt he had a good chance at a normal life. He asked if he could have more HU cards! His friends had seen how HU had helped him and wanted to see if it could help them too.
And for you?
HU holds the power to dispel “demons” of all kinds—anxiety, attachments, the pull of karma—whatever we find may be following us around!
The Sound of Love
“Ashley” and her brother “Mike” were standing in line at a restaurant when they noticed a man with an adorable puppy. The puppy did not yet have a formal name, and the man asked if Ashley and Mike could help name him.
The name “Buddy” came to Ashley, so she said the name and spelled it. But it was as if she hadn’t spoken. The man gave no response at all. Then Mike offered “Bucky,” the name of his own dog whom he dearly loved. The man’s face lit up. “I will call him Bucky!” he said and went his way.
Ashley was mystified. It was odd how the man just loved that name. Mike said, “It’s not the name he felt, but the love behind the name.” Ashley realized that words alone don’t mean much. It’s the feeling behind them that creates the energy we respond to.
Sri Harold said, “It’s always all about love.”
True Love and Freedom
“Carol” was a member of ECK, and her husband, “Matthew,” was a Southern Baptist. They were married thirty-two years and based their spiritual relationship on freedom. Matthew did all he could to help out at this church, and he also helped out all he could for ECKANKAR. He helped open ECK Centers and moved furniture, all while he was battling grave illnesses. Through all his trials, he found a new understanding of the Holy Spirit. Matthew and Carol were able to honor each other’s right to approach God in the way that was right for each of them.
About three days before his passing, Matthew asked that the religious music they’d been playing be turned off and that the HU be put on instead. They sang the HU together and played it day and night. Matthew told Carol that he found this love song to God to be awesome.
Sri Harold worked around his tears to finish their story.
A short while before Matthew passed on, Carol introduced him to the Inner Master in contemplation. She saw the Master give Matthew an initiation but then turn him toward the gate where Jesus waited for him.
