Spiritual Grace

By Harold Klemp

Everything in the right amount brings an abundance of life and fulfillment.

Nature reflects the laws of ECK. Therefore, observe its workings in the habits of birds, the cycles of plants, and the instincts of the reptiles and mammals.

All sing the glory of ECK; all teach the secrets of life.

Watch the coming and going of clouds, the waxing and waning of the moon, and the rising and setting of the sun. They reveal the natural order of creation.

Everything is right when there is neither too much nor too little for the time and place. So is it also with your spiritual life. Read More

How God’s Love Enters the Human Heart

By Harold Klemp

An agnostic joined Eckankar. He stayed an agnostic for a long time, but he developed a great respect for life.

He used to love to go fishing. He’s from the midwestern United States, and he’d go out to the western part of Colorado to do his trout fishing.

This man used a special hook that had no barbs so that he could unhook the fish with the smallest amount of injury and throw the fish back into the stream. He’d thank the fish, the way the Native Americans used to. They always gave thanks for any food that they needed to take from the theater of life because they realized that to survive one must eat another, whether it’s animal or plant. It’s a part of living.

Today we have people who are very self-righteous about being vegetarians. They feel they are more righteous because they don’t eat meat. They are eating plants, as if plants don’t have life or consciousness. Read More

How to Be Most Like God

By Harold Klemp

A search for happiness is the pursuit of God. Yet the reason so many people fail to find happiness is because they look for it in the wrong place—at the market instead of in their hearts.

It takes discipline to pursue God.

There is no mystery to finding God: just follow the Sound of the divine Voice back home. Could anything be easier? Not so for most people, for whom the pursuit of God is as unlikely as the phenomenon of a flying rabbit. And why? It’s simply not in their consciousness yet to know that the destiny of each Soul is to become a Co-worker with God, who expects more of us than an eternity of eating and play. Read More

Simplicity of Love

 

Simplicity of Love

Today,

something touched so deep

that it redeemed the good in me and

let the good in others shine.

 

Today,

the opener of hearts healed the heart and

spoke of greatness in small things.

 

Today,

a tide of kindness came in and

filled me with ease.

 

Today,

forgiveness lifted me out of myself,

refreshing in the simplicity of its love.

In God We Trust?

Shariyat 1&2 CoverBy Harold Klemp

A woman lived in a foreign country and often transferred money from her American account to her local account. Lately she had been having a great deal of trouble financially and was losing money on the exchange rate. It got so bad that she thought, I have so many financial problems, I don’t know what to do. I think I’ll do the Shariyat technique.

So she sat down on the bed in contemplation and opened The Shariyat-Ki-Sugmad at random. The passage said something to the effect that there is no limit to what Soul may accomplish. That’s pretty neutral, the woman thought. She opened the book again and read something about how Soul cannot know the value of its experience until It is like an empty vessel. (And here the woman is on the verge of losing everything.) Read More

Forever Being

The mists dispersed.

The sun broke through.

The memories rolled back

to scene upon scene

that I once knew

a long time ago,

life upon life upon life. Read More

Key to the Door of Truth

Key to the Door of TruthBy Harold Klemp

How do you recognize truth?

Most people respond to the Light and Sound of God indirectly by listening to their intuition, trusting their feelings, or following their conscience.

But others do see the Light directly; It often appears before the Sound. They are two parts of the Voice of God, the ECK, which speaks to all whose spiritual eyes can see the mysteries of divine love.

Each of us is a unique individual, with our own peculiar combination of experiences accumulated over many lifetimes. The truth of ECK comes to each of us like a special key, custom-designed with millions of little notches and grooves. It is the only key that will fit the lock, turn it, and open the door of Soul.

Getting Answers in Dreams—There Is Always a Way

By Harold Klemp

At some level Soul knows everything. If there is something that you would like to bring into consciousness, here is a way to get help.

Before you go to sleep, relax and decide that upon awakening you will have an answer to whatever it is that you desire.

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

How Does Prayer Work?

ECKANKAR, Prayer, Unconditional Love, God, HUBy Harold Klemp

The Spindrift Organization has done a lot of experiments in the lab trying to prove that prayer works.  They set up experiments with plants, and they tried directed prayer.  They’d always have a control group.  Then they would see if there were any differences in plant growth.  And there were.

They did these experiments for a while, and then somebody had an idea.  They said, “We’ve proved now that prayer changes things.”  In other words, saying to the little plant, “Grow!”  “But now let’s see if there’s a difference between directed prayer and other types.”  They wanted to look at another kind of prayer, which is nondirected prayer.
