Spiritual Exercise: Restoring Harmony

ECKANKAR, HU, Protection, HealingBy Harold Klemp

Whenever somebody is making it difficult for you at work, simply sing HU quietly to yourself.  Let the other person vent his rage, and just wait and see what the ECK will do to work out the situation.

You’ll find that you know what to say or not to say, when to speak or be quiet, when and how to keep out of the individual’s way, or whether it will be necessary to appeal to the person’s supervisor to get him off your back.

When you run into these things, by all means sing HU to open yourself as a channel for God.  You don’t use the HU to change the other person’s state of consciousness; you use it for your protection.

It surrounds you with a blanket of white light, and whatever is thrown at you must return to the sender.  The person who attacks you often finds himself so busy with his own problems that he no longer has time to continue his attacks on you.

How to Make Good Decisions

06B44_BFBy Harold Klemp

Everyone wants to make good decisions.  But how do you know when you are being guided by the ECK or by the mind?  Here’s a simple way to tell.

If guided by ECK, you are more likely to change your mind when new information comes along.  You’re quicker to admit that an earlier decision based on sketchy information needs to change.

The mind has the power to make you believe you are always right.  That’s why a headstrong person acts so smart.  He thinks he’s always right, though he’s often wrong.

Spiritual Exercise: Listening for God

ECKANKAR, God, Holy SpiritBy Harold Klemp

Try this simple spiritual exercise to help you hear and see the two aspects of God, the Light and Sound.

Go somewhere quiet.  Sit or lie down in a comfortable place.  Put your attention on your Spiritual Eye, a point just above and behind your eyebrows.  With eyes lightly shut, begin to sing a holy word or phrase, such as HU, God, Holy Spirit, or “Show me thy ways, O Lord.”  But fill your heart with love before you approach the altar of God, because only the pure may come.

Be patient.  Do this exercise for several weeks, for a limit of twenty minutes each time.  Sit, sing, and wait.  God speaks to you only when you are able to listen.

Spiritual Exercise: The Golden Cup

HR_Golden-Chalice-blue-bkgnd_lower-resBy Harold Klemp

Every evening at bedtime visualize a golden cup by your bed.  Its beverage is your dreams.  When you first awaken, in the morning contemplation, drink from this cup in your imagination.  You are drinking in the night’s experiences.  It is a conscious way of saying, I wish to recall my night’s activities on the inner planes while my body slept.

The golden cup is Soul; it is you.  You are one and the same.

As you get in the habit of drinking from this cup, this practice takes on a life of its own.  The more the ECK (Holy Spirit) refills this cup, the more Soul (you) shines of Its own golden light.  You become an ever-brighter instrument for the Holy Spirit.

Your conscious experiences, day and night, will lead to a greater understanding of your place in the spiritual order of life.

For Love and Acceptance

Shariyat SpirEX Bk1_CoverBy Harold Klemp

“The wise man is one who stores up the ECK within himself and at the same time distributes the spiritual love which is within himself. He is not one who gives his compassion to a few but to all, whether or not many understand this. He is able to live among the wretched, the thieves, the unhappy, robbers and fools, for he accepts life for whatever it is and gives love to all. He is the wise one who is able to give all that he has to his fellow man. He finds love for those who greedily accept what he gives, and they shall be blessed a thousand times for his love.”

Shariyat-Ki-Sugmad, Bk. 1, p. 147 Read More

Spiritual Exercise: Self-Protection

ECKANKAR, Protection, Healing

By Harold Klemp

To protect yourself you must remember two principles: (1) never believe that you will be harmed by anything or anybody, because you are ageless, eternal Soul; and (2) practice fearlessness by never being afraid of anything or letting the imagination run wild by imagining something happening to your body to harm it.

Three techniques for self-protection are: (1) place a reversed mirror in front of you, which the adversary’s psychic self can see but cannot withstand; (2) place a white light around yourself; and (3) start talking in a normal voice, telling your adversary that he isn’t acting according to the laws of human decency.

Spiritual Exercise: Law of Reversed Effort

ECKANKAR, Goals, Positive ImaginationBy Harold Klemp

If you feel you are trying too hard to accomplish something, consider the Law of Reversed Effort.  This law is a practical law of nature concerned with the use of the imaginative powers.

It goes like this: The more you concentrate on putting your imaginative powers upon something, the less you are able to do it.  Or, the harder one struggles to avoid something the more it will be attracted to him. Read More

For Alignment with God

“If the Mahanta bestows gifts upon the solicitor, then he is the most fortunate of the fortunates for it means that he basks in the favor of the Living ECK Master and seeks nothing further in life. He has met and found the true Vi-Guru, and must now start his spiritual journey to God. Read More
