Why Are We Here?

ECKANKAR, God, Soul, DestinyBy Harold Klemp

Q: In the grand scheme of things, why are we here?  I believe I understand that we are here to attain Self-Realization, then later God-Realization on our journey home to God to truly be a Co-worker.  Why this “journey” in the first place?

A: Why this journey home to God?

Do you know the parable of the prodigal son?  A young man, born into all the advantages of a wealthy family, decided to leave home and see the world.  Well, he wasted his money and ended up in a far land, among strangers, working as a swineherd.  He would gladly have eaten what the pigs did.

One day it came to him: here he was living nearly like a beggar.  Even his father’s hired servants fared better.

So the wastrel returned home.

“Father,” he said, “I’m a waste.  I’m not worthy to be called your son.  Make me as one of your servants.” Read More

Who Are You, and Why Are You Here?

inner_worlds_27_color_HIBy Harold Klemp

Q: What is Soul, and why are we here?

A: Soul just is.  It is the creative center of Its own world.

We know that Soul exists by the evidence of life around us.  When Soul inhabits a body, that body lives, moves, and has being.  When Soul leaves, the body no longer lives, moves, or has being.  What has left?  By direct or indirect evidence, we know that some unseen force gives life to a physical body.

What is that something?  Soul, of course. Read More

Why Bad Things Happen to Good People

ECKANKAR, Karma, Law of Love, Destiny, ReincarnationBy Harold Klemp

What do you suppose makes people unhappy?  A survey would probably list a hundred reasons, both real and imagined.

Now how many of those people do you think would like to hear the true reason for their unhappiness?  Just a guess—very few.

The choices you’ve made in the past are the direct cause of all your unhappiness today.

If this answer doesn’t suit you, don’t read another word.  You have better things to do.  But maybe you’re one of the few people who doesn’t absolutely reject the above explanation for your unhappiness.  Then keep reading.  Perhaps you’ll see how and why individuals make bad choices.

Most important, you may learn how to stop making them.

Discover Your Life as a Spiritual Adventure

11C54_BZ_TheViewEvery living creature in this world is Soul, a unique and eternal being that is continually refined by life experience.  This world is a school in which we live many lifetimes to grow as spiritual beings.  Every experience, joyful or painful, contains a personalized lesson.  You may know this as karma, or cause and effect.  We repeatedly face a challenge until it is overcome.

These lessons are not random.  The point is for each of us to master our own spiritual destiny—to get to where we can find love, happiness, and balance in life under any circumstances.  This is a goal we can all reach in this lifetime.

A Special Purpose for This Life

11C53_BZ_TheMomentBy Harold Klemp

Odd as it may seem, you had a special reason for coming into this lifetime.  It was to become a more godlike being, but most people do not realize this fact.  They assume that birth is a fancy of destiny.

All the lives you have ever lived were for the polishing of Soul.  Like it or not, you are now at a higher and more spiritual level than in any prior incarnation.  So look at yourself.  Do you like what you see?  Keep in mind, whatever it is, for better or worse, it’s of your own making.

You are the sum of all your thoughts, feelings, and actions from this life and every lifetime in the past. Read More
