HU, a Cat’s Spiritual Exercise

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

 

This is the story of “Alita.” She’s the mom of Minnou, a cat she’s owned for ten years. I have to say, the only name that I haven’t changed in these stories is Minnou’s. I don’t think she’ll mind.

During the ten years that Minnou has lived in Alita’s home, the Spiritual Exercises of ECK have become very important for Minnou. This is the HU session with the Mahanta, the Inner Master.

Well, Alita had just taken up knitting. She became so engrossed in knitting one day, she knitted clean through the time set aside for the HU session. OK, Minnou forgave her that day, but this HU session is for Minnou too. Read More

The Dream Basket

By Harold Klemp

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

Spiritual Exercise: Law of Reversed Effort

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

How Big Is Your Sign?

By Ted, Washington

I was in a bit of a quandary during my morning contemplation which I did in the visitor parking lot at work today. I was hired recently to work at a tech job some 110 miles from home. I enjoy the work and the co-workers. But the 220 mile round-trip commute is very tiring and leaves little time at night to get anything done before going to bed.

But the real issue is not the low pay and high cost of the commute. It is something else inside me. So, I asked the Inner Master for a sign if I should stay with this job or leave it.

I got out of my car and began to head to a hiking trail on the ground of the company where I work. Upon entering the next parking lot, I heard crows calling in alarm mode. I saw three of them and two glided to a tall lamp post. The combination of the crows calling and the lamp post meant the Sound and Light. Read More
