A Spiritual Healing for Depression, by Singing “HU”

This clip—and the transcript below—is from Harold Klemp’s 2014 talk “The Language of Love (2014).”

 

Sarah was living with her mom, Miriam, and Miriam was fighting depression. For no reason at all, she would just burst into tears. A waterfall would come gushing out, and there she was, just crying and crying. Sarah felt really bad about the whole thing, and she asked the Inner Master, the Mahanta, “Mahanta, what can I do to help my mom?”

So she chanted HU aloud. Then she talked to her mom, and she kissed her mom. And guess what? You guessed wrong. Her mom became angry. She did not like that. Don’t touch, keep away. So it didn’t help. Read More

How to Soul Travel: Beyond Astral Projection and Out-of-Body Experiences

This clip—and the transcript below—is from Harold Klemp‘s 2013 talk “Just Keep Trying.”

 

This story is about “Uba,” who’s currently living in the United States. In an African language, “Uba” means rich.

Way back when he was a Second Initiate, Uba wanted to Soul Travel more than anything. Because as far as he was concerned, if he could Soul Travel, this would prove that Eckankar was real, and that the ECK teachings were what they said they were.

He was so desperate to learn to Soul Travel. He tried a three-day, dry fasting technique that his Christian father had taught him before he died. Yet the deceased can come in dreams and tell you all kinds of things. Read More

Who Am I?: The Mystery of Soul

This clip—and the transcript below—is from Harold Klemp’s 2011 talk “A Clear Message.”

 

Many people don’t realize that this lifetime is a rare opportunity. Of all the billions of people who are here, not so many will find ECK. But it’s a precious lifetime for every Soul who is here. We come here, in a sense, like people walking into a dark room—into a dark hallway even—where there are a lot of sharp edges. And we stumble along, trip over things, bump into walls, get turned around, run into corners, and things like that. Eventually we begin to look around for the light, or a voice, a sound—anything to give us a clue. How can we get out of this dark place? Read More

Harold Klemp Shares Wisdom on Relationships: How to Become a Magnet for Love

This clip—and the transcript below—is from Harold Klemp’s 2010 talk “Teacher and Student.”

 

Someone wrote to me about having a very hard time finding love. The secret of love is: To get love, you must give love. You’ve really got to open yourself and give freely of yourself. You can’t fake it. It’s got to be so. And when you do this, you become a magnet for love. Then the right person will come along because you’re no longer repelling. You’re attracting, because of your open heart.

Even when you’re in a relationship, it takes a long time to get engaged in it, if you will. It takes time because there are past hurts—all kinds of things that are in the past that need to be overcome. Read More

A Grandson Sees the Light of God by Chanting “HU”

This clip—and the transcript below—is from Harold Klemp’s 2007 talk “Change Is Change.”

 

Myra also has two grandsons. One Saturday morning, they came over to visit. “Mark” is the older; he’s thirteen. “Jimmy” is eleven.

Myra greeted them with a lot of joy. She loves them dearly. Then she said to them, “It’s just about time for my spiritual exercises. You’re free to stay out here or go to the den and watch cartoons on TV.” They said, “No. No. We want to do a spiritual exercise with you.” So Myra said, “OK.” They went into her bedroom and sat on her bed.

She said, “All right. Look for the Light, and listen for the Sound. Look into your Spiritual Eye.”

It wasn’t five minutes later that she heard this snickering. Myra opened one eye. She’s been around. She peeks. She saw the younger grandson, Jimmy, sitting with his hand covering his mouth, laughing. Over his hand, she saw these two laughing eyes. At the same time, Mark, the older boy, was whispering in one of those stage whispers intended for Grandma’s ears, no doubt. He said, “She’s making it up! She’s making it up!” Read More

How Can I Be in Alignment with Divine Spirit?

This clip—and the transcript below—is from Harold Klemp’s 2009 talk “The Secret Path to Heaven.”

 

I’d like to start with some questions from the youth, because they’re always challenging.

The first question is: When everything is going right, I begin to take my spiritual life and connection with the Mahanta, the Inner Master, for granted. How can I keep my inner fire alive?

Well, life has a wonderful way of nudging us back on track. The mind has a very natural tendency to want to go back to the track it came from. That’s the mind. So the experiences in life will see us having a good time—easy going, easy rolling. Then suddenly things will turn around and go wrong. Read More

What to Do When Friends Smoke, Gossip, or Push Their Beliefs on You

This clip—and the transcript below—is from Harold Klemp’s 2009 talk “The Secret Path to Heaven.”

 

Here’s a good one, the fourth and last question from one of our ECK youth: How do I enjoy the company of friends who do things which are against my personal code?

Now, these friends include a smoker, a gossip, and an atheist. Just like many ECKists, he has a real wide variety of friends. The quick and easy thing is to just get rid of them all! He can do that.

If you see somebody who has to settle for friends like this, you say, My gosh! What’s the matter with you? Read More

ECKANKAR: Inner Guidance—Listening to Your Intuition Can Help Others

This clip—and the transcript below—is from Harold Klemp’s 1994 talk “Just Keep Moving Ahead.”

 

Often people are afraid to follow their inner guidance. It sounds like such a foolish thing to do, especially if they have to face other people and explain why they are doing what they are doing.

One of the very strong pressures in a seeker’s life is the social consciousness: What will people think? What will people say?

The social consciousness is so strong that it keeps people in religions that they have outgrown years ago. But they’re afraid to leave because they worry about what the neighbors will say. It is a very strong force that the negative power uses to keep people in line. Read More
