Stepping-Stones

By Harold Klemp

Some people never recognize the blessings they receive. Others may look back and realize they’ve had a gift of healing of some sort. Maybe something has changed at work to make their life better. But it depends upon the individual—how conscious you are.

A spiritual exercise to begin recognizing your gifts is this: Sing HU quietly to yourself or out loud. Look at the obstacles in your life that you think are stumbling blocks. Imagine them becoming stepping-stones. How are they teaching you about yourself? Open yourself and gain greater awareness of this as you sing HU. Read More

Why Whisper?

By Harold Klemp

An ECKist went to lunch with a friend. During lunch the man told the ECKist a funny joke about a fat couple he had happened to see sitting next to him in another restaurant. The ECKist went away from the lunch meeting thinking that it was a really funny story. And he filed it away to pass on later.

That evening, the ECKist was at a Chinese restaurant with a business associate. When they finished their meal, the waitress brought the check with two fortune cookies. Just as the ECKist started to break open his fortune cookie, a large couple came into the restaurant and were seated at the next booth. The couple reminded him of the people in the funny story he had heard earlier. Read More

For Truth

By Harold Klemp

The word HU will spiritualize you. It’s an ancient name for God. Sing HU on the way to work, for instance, and you will find that you have a different way of looking at the people around you and at the work you do.

Just sing HU every day. Take it to heart, and then go about your daily life.

Wherever you are, do the things that are necessary: bring home the groceries, sweep the floor. Do these things, and someday you will find that you have the secret of truth in your hand. You will have the secret of truth in your heart.

HU can show you truth.

The Dream Basket

By Harold Klemp

In contemplation or the dream state, imagine meeting the Inner Master in your home or office. He holds out a wastebasket. “Take your cares and worries, and put them in here,” he tells you.

Visualize taking all the things that are bothering you and putting them into the Master’s basket. Feel rested and relaxed as you release them into the hands of the ECK [Holy Spirit]. Read More

Three Ways to Regain Emotional Balance

Should I give Her My Money?By Harold Klemp

If you are faced with negative attitudes about people, how can you feel the love of the Mahanta? Here are three ways:

  1. If you meet someone that you have negative feelings about, silently say to yourself, “In the name of the Sugmad.” Repeat this phrase to yourself each time this occurs, blessing the situation and letting it go.
  2. Be polite when these people are near you, but chant HU silently within yourself. Listen to them while you chant, rather than getting into a long conversation with them. Say as little as possible while still remaining cordial.
  3. In your imagination, see the Mahanta near you.

When you bless a situation, you keep yourself in balance and do not become involved in the negative conditions. In addition, if you are a true channel for the ECK, miracles will take place around you.

To Give and Receive Divine Love

By Harold Klemp

Soul moves through the evolutionary process in a number of different forms, including those of animals and birds. These are some of the many different ways in which Soul gains experience, thereby gaining expression of Its divine self.

In the process, Soul must learn to receive love and to give love.

One of the best ways to learn how to give and receive divine love is to chant HU as a daily spiritual exercise. Simply sit comfortably where no one will disturb you, close your eyes, and gaze gently into your Spiritual Eye. This is the point between your eyebrows, at the center of your forehead. Then sing HU softly on your outgoing breath. Read More

A Technique for Conquering Fear

By Harold Klemp

The ECK, Divine Spirit, pushes us into a situation where—by agreement, by saying we would like the next-higher stage of illumination—we open ourselves to changes in our life.

The moment we say to the Mahanta, “I am ready; take me where you will,” is like the flash of lightning. In the space of time that follows, we face the unknown. We go about our life, changes start to occur, and we don’t quite understand what’s happening or how it’s going to turn out. Read More

A Technique to Go Slower

By Harold Klemp

Life puts you in situations that can cause you to panic. You have to remember to calm down, to get yourself, Soul, back in control of the mind. That helps you think clearly enough to see what needs to be done. Then you can take care of the situation.

Patience and composure are among the attributes of an ECK chela. What can you do to develop these two qualities in yourself? Read More
