ECKANKAR—The Path of Spiritual Freedom

The Hero’s Journey

By Sri Harold Klemp

Have you ever felt a hunger for something you can’t even put words to?

What if you are actually on a journey—a quest—that has spanned the ages, continents, lifetimes? It has survived victories, tragedies, wealth and poverty, unimaginable gains and losses. Death and rebirth time and again.

The journey is worth everything. Because you are the hero, and your saga continues until the quest is fulfilled.

A hero? Read More

How an ECK Master Saved and Guided Me

By Anthony, Nigeria

When I was a child, my father worked with Her Majesty’s Naval Service. We lived near the Lagos lagoon, where I liked to play and swim with my friends.

One fateful day at the lagoon, I came across a timber raft. Large wood logs were tied lengthwise to form a raft. That was how timber was transported around the shores of Nigeria in those days. Someone had berthed the raft on the sandy shore. Part of it still floated on the water.

I climbed onto the first log, walked to its end, and jumped into the water. I went to the second log and did the same. Each jump landed my feet on watery but firm ground. It was not the first time I had played this game. Other children and I often played this game whenever there was a raft on the beach. That day I was alone. Read More

The Essence of All Truth

By Harold Klemp

A Higher Initiate had been in Eckankar a long time. She had recently lost a younger sister to cancer. In the final days before the sister died—we say translated—her condition grew worse and worse. Finally the doctors decided to do an emergency operation. The sister was terrified of the operation. The ECKist wondered if she should have acted as more of a guardian for her sister against the intrusions of medicine. Her sister wasn’t going to live anyway.

As the operation was about to begin, the sick woman said to the doctors, “Leave my body alone, and let me die.” They kept interfering and interfering. All she wanted was peace. So she slipped into a coma, and the life-support systems were hooked up to her. After a few days, this younger sister finally died. The ECKist felt badly that she hadn’t protected her sister more in the final days of her life on earth. Read More

To Love All Life

To Love All LifeBy Harold Klemp

“One becomes the bhakti, the devotee, who loves all life more than he loves himself. He discards all rites and ceremonies and seeks to follow the Living ECK Master through the force of love only. When one reaches this stage of spiritual development he finds the Living ECK Master always in his inner vision, waiting to meet him at a point between the Sun Worlds and the Moon Worlds. This is the pure astral zone, where the lover of God enters a zone called the Ashta-dal-Kanwal. At this point the whole course of his life is changed.”

The Shariyat-Ki-Sugmad, Book One, p. 137 Read More

Near Death but Not Nearly Dying

comfort, courage, Harold Klemp, SoulBy Linda Anderson, Minnesota

A woman we’ll call Cindy faced a life-threatening medical condition. After Cindy fell asleep in her hospital bed, the Mahanta, her spiritual guide, took her into another dimension to view what was really happening.

Cindy found herself in a Roman coliseum where gladiators fought each other. The sound of clashing blades and the sight of dust and blood convinced her that she was facing a battle for her life.

One night while she was still in the hospital, Cindy moved into a higher state of consciousness. The Mahanta took her to a meeting with several ECK Masters Read More

Surviving a Tornado on Holy Ground

By Harold Klemp

“Donna” was going to have a new telecommunications company install their system in her home. She was switching companies. So one day a young phone rep came to her home. “Brian” was his name. She took him to her office and let him size up the place—see what kind of equipment she had, and decide what to do about it.

In the meantime, Donna was running around as quick as she could, straightening things up, moving things here and there, because it was her office, and it was cluttered. Brian looked around. Donna had all kinds of stuff in there. She had watercolors, art reproductions, road maps, photos of famous groups (I don’t know of what—musicians?). And then bookcases overloaded with Chinese medicine books and medicine. Read More

What to Do When Friends Smoke, Gossip, or Push Their Beliefs on You

This clip—and the transcript below—is from Harold Klemp’s 2009 talk “The Secret Path to Heaven.”

 

Here’s a good one, the fourth and last question from one of our ECK youth: How do I enjoy the company of friends who do things which are against my personal code?

Now, these friends include a smoker, a gossip, and an atheist. Just like many ECKists, he has a real wide variety of friends. The quick and easy thing is to just get rid of them all! He can do that.

If you see somebody who has to settle for friends like this, you say, My gosh! What’s the matter with you? Read More

To Bring Joy and Wonder to Your Life

By Harold Klemp

Here’s a spiritual exercise to try if you want to experience the Light or Sound of God:

Shut your eyes and look into the Spiritual Eye. (It’s between your eyebrows, in the center of your forehead.) Sing HU, an ancient name for God, one of the most powerful words for spiritual upliftment.

As you sing HU, listen for a holy Sound. It may come in any number of ways: like the sound of a rumbling train, a singing bird, buzzing bees, a mellow flute, or even soothing guitars. Read More
