A woman had run her life by the forces of power and control instead of love. When she came into contact with other people, her inclination was to control them, to tell them what to do. The woman had developed some bad habits, but she couldn’t pinpoint what this was doing to her life.
So the Dream Master gave her an experience about habits. One night in the dream state, the Dream Master took her into a basement with a group of people. The basement was very dark. Leeches were crawling on the floors and walls.
The people in the basement felt it was very important to pluck the leeches off themselves. They spent most of their time just sitting in the basements, plucking and plucking. Read More
ECK is the path of freedom. We want the spiritual freedom to move about and live our lives without interference from other people. But this means freedom with responsibility. It doesn’t mean you can strut into another person’s space, tell him how to live his life, then claim you are living the life of ECK. Because if you impose your viewpoint on others without invitation, you are not living the life of ECK. ECK gives people the freedom to be themselves. Read More
The e-book edition of Autobiography of a Modern Prophet won the American Book Fest 2017 Best Book Award for New Age: Non-Fiction. Autobiography of a Modern Prophet was selected by a distinguished panel of industry judges from 2,000 entries.
For me, Sri Harold’s momentous journey before and after God-Realization twisted and turned like a fast-paced novel. He wrote, “The heart of this book is thus not the experience of God alone, but also the narrative that precedes and follows the experience. It shows how I had to come to terms with this unexcelled state of God Awareness in my everyday life.”
After hearing about the national award, I thought it would be cool to find out why other people love the book. The results follow. Read More
My sister Carrie was on her way to visit me for my wedding anniversary celebration. I was happy she was coming and agreed to pick her up at the airport.
Almost as soon as she got into the car, she began to tell me stories about her new dog named Dillon, who is a Wheaten Terrier. Dillon was a rescue dog and very loving. My sister doted on him like a new mother over a baby.
When we arrived home, Carrie got a call from her husband, Jerry. He had taken Dillon up to their ranch in Montana. As he usually did, he let Dillon out to run around and explore. But this time, the dog hadn’t returned.

When you awaken, it will be in the forefront of your thoughts. At the moment of slipping from or into sleep, you are opened to truth and in direct contact with it. It is at this point that you will perceive your answer. Read More
Sri Harold Klemp sometimes uses folktales, fables, parables, and stories to illustrate spiritual principles. In the excerpt below from one of his talks, he retells “The Scratched Diamond” from The Hungry Clothes and Other Jewish Folktales,by Peninnah Schram.
A student was walking along with his master one day. This master was known for always answering questions with a parable. His student said, “Rabbi, I have so many imperfections. What can I do? How can I work with them so that I can be a better person?” The Rabbi said, “Listen, and I’ll tell you a story. Read More
One Friday, a few years ago, I started to have a conversation with God.
I live in Washington state, and wildfires were raging there. That year over a quarter of a million acres burned in Washington—the worst ever up to that date.
My brother “Shane,” also an ECKist, lived in a distant part of the state. I had been keeping in touch with him about the fires. And then, for two days, I lost all communication with him. At the same time, I could track the fire closing in on him on the Internet, and I saw that the fire was a mere thousand yards away. Read More
“The extrovertive way looks outward, through the physical senses into the external world, finding there the greater experience of the divine reality. The introvertive way turns inward, with an introspective manner of seeing through the inner senses and eyes to find the greater experience of the divine reality beyond the human consciousness.”
