The Wise King

By Harold Klemp

In an old kingdom in some faraway place in a forgotten time, the people had a system of government whereby they elected a new king every four years. The king, once elected, had absolute power.

Could I Please Pay for That Honey?

By Harold Klemp

A mother went shopping with her bratty daughter.  They were standing in the checkout line, waiting to pay for groceries.  The mother had a shopping cart filled with food, and the little girl had her hands all over it.  She kept pushing the cart against the back of the woman ahead of them in line.  “Bam, bam, bam,” she said, as she rammed the cart into the woman.

Finally the woman turned around.  “Could you please ask your daughter to stop? That hurts!” she said to the mother.

“I will not,” the mother answered.  “My daughter is being raised the antiauthoritarian way.  And I wish her to have freedom.”  And the little girl went right on banging this woman in the back. Read More

Showing Charity

By Harold Klemp

I was driving into the parking lot of a local discount store when I suddenly saw a white Cadillac tailing me.  I wasn’t paying too much attention until the person in the Cadillac began honking the horn over and over.

The driveway was huge, but the Cadillac cruised right on my left rear fender.  The driver was upset.  She thought I had cut in front of her while driving into the parking lot.  She cruised on my bumper for a long time, then finally pulled around me, parked, and rushed into the store.

I don’t like to be pushed, so when she came out of the store, I went over to her and said, “You probably didn’t notice, but the freeway is over there.”  This was not the thing to say.  She batted my ears down.  When she left, I said, “That was really something.”  I could feel the waves of anger coming from her so strongly that I found myself shaking.

Guardian Angel

Rebazar Tarzs_internetBy Harold Klemp

A ten-year-old girl went to the dentist to have a filling replaced. Since a nerve was exposed in her tooth, the dentist put in a temporary filling. In those days, dentistry wasn’t very evolved, and the filling wasn’t very good. Over the weekend when the dentist’s office was closed, the girl’s temporary filling fell out.

The exposed nerve caused the girl such great pain that she just lay in bed and cried and cried. Her mother couldn’t do anything to calm her down. Read More

Coffee Break

By Harold Klemp

One Saturday morning a woman and her husband decided to go shopping at an expensive home-furnishings store.  The company was having a warehouse sale that began at 10:00 a.m.  Right next to the warehouse was the regular store, which opened at 9:00 a.m.

The couple arrived about fifteen minutes before the regular store opened.  Outside in the cold, unloading a furniture truck, was a young man.  The couple asked him if there was a coffee shop nearby where they could wait.  The young man gave them directions, and they set off.

They drove around for about ten minutes but couldn’t find the coffee shop, so they came back to the warehouse.  The young man was still unloading furniture.  He gave them the directions again, but they thanked him and said they’d just wait inside the store. Read More

The Australian Schoolteacher

ECKANKAR, ECK Parable, Waking Dream, Holy SpiritBy Harold Klemp

A teacher in Australia had finished a particularly rough day with her students.  She taught French to children ages seven or eight.  Because it was hot they were unruly that day, and she couldn’t do anything to maintain order in the classroom.

A citywide train strike was on that week.  Instead of taking a ten-minute train ride home, after school let out that evening the teacher had to get on the bus and ride for several hours.  The buses were very overcrowded because of the strike, and there was no air conditioning.

Sitting near the front of the bus, the woman mulled over what had happened during the day.  Inwardly she seethed.  How difficult the children had been!  Her thoughts went round and round as she got angrier.

Suddenly the bus driver’s radio crackled as a communication came through.  Another driver was calling the command center.  “The needle on my heat gauge is going up and up,” he said.  “What do I do?” Read More

One Small Thing for Love

ECKANKAR, Pets, Soul, LoveBy Harold Klemp

I got a letter from a woman whose life had pretty much caught up with her and stomped her down. She was fed up. In her letter she said, “Harold, tell it to me straight. What do I need to know?”

I wrote back to her, “Do one thing each day for love alone. Don’t expect any kind of reward.”

When the woman got my letter, she was so excited. She called up her friend, “Hey, Harold actually reads these letters. He wrote back to me!” She wanted her friend to go to the mall with her so she could tell her all about it over tea or a snack. But her friend said, “I can’t go to the mall with you; I’ve got a meeting.” So the woman went alone. Read More
