A Soul Travel Experience Brings Understanding

Have you ever wondered about the purpose of studying the teachings of Eckankar?

Sri Harold writes about a woman who becomes intrigued with the teachings after reading The Wind of Change.

In the article below Sri Harold describes himself the way he looked in earlier years as “this man with the glasses and the brown hair.” In a dream he introduces the woman to spiritual laws contained in the “Book of Rules.”

See what she learns about spiritual freedom when the Mahanta, the Living ECK Master offers experiences specially designed for her benefit and growth.

How many years does it take some people to become members of ECK? Sometimes we are surrounded by family and friends who are members of ECK. Other times we find ourselves alone in a remote part of the world, and there is no one else who has ever heard about the ECK teachings. But whatever happens, somewhere there is a connection.

A Dream Reunion Heals a Grieving Heart

By Kathleen, Illinois

A few years ago, my friend Jim passed away suddenly. He’d been a companion with whom I lived for many years. Like me, he was a longtime member of Eckankar. His passing left me feeling shocked, lonely, bereft—and unaccountably angry.

Over the next month or two, I kept thinking of things he did that really annoyed me. I shifted between anger and missing him terribly.

Then one morning I had a fantastic dream. I was walking down a white marble hall and sensed Jim coming up behind me. I felt his right arm wrap around my shoulders and gather me to him, my cheek against his chest. Without looking up, I sobbed, “I miss you so much!” I felt his kiss on the very top of my head, and he breathed two compassionate, loving words, “I know.” Read More

A Dream about This Article

s16-kw-120By Sri Harold Klemp

For several days I’d stewed over this weekend’s assignment: this article.

That’s seldom the case. For most assignments, ideas come to mind during the week, which I jot down, because these promptings are like vapor. They come easily, but they quickly vanish too.

So it was unusual for this article to so trouble me.

Here’s my challenge: how to differentiate my article from all the excellent stories around mine? How? A big question.

Little ideas popped up on my mind’s screen throughout the week. How about the nurse who’d shopped a number of churches before settling on one where she felt at home, among friends? No, I’d already done that. A repeat would be stale. Read More

What Is the Inner and Outer Master?

Inner and Outer MasterBy Harold Klemp

In ECK, there is the principle of the Inner and Outer Master.  The Outer Master is myself as the spiritual leader of Eckankar.  But there is also an inner part, which we call the Inner Master, who gives spiritual instruction to each person as he or she needs it.

In other words, each person is unique in how they look at life, because each person’s experiences have been totally unique.  Even twins are unique in that there is a different being operating through each physical body.

As the Inner Master I am able to reach and teach many people at once.  More importantly, I am able to talk to each person according to his spiritual needs.  This is a part of the spiritual teaching of Eckankar which might differ from what many people are used to in their previous religion.  Read More

A Dream Exercise

Dreams are an easy and natural way to pursue spiritual unfoldment.  Here is an exercise you can try before you go to sleep.  It can help you see your problems from a higher viewpoint to aid you in your life.

Make a request.  Before you go to sleep, write down a question about a problem that bothers you.  Ask the Dream Master or your own spiritual teacher for guidance on this question.  Lie down, and close your eyes.

Sing HU.  Softly sing HU (pronounced like the word hue) for about five minutes.  HU is an ancient name for God.  It has the unique ability to lift you into a higher state of awareness.  Singing HU connects you with Divine Spirit, or ECK, which can be seen as an inner light or heard as sound.

Write down your experiences.  When you wake up in the morning, write down any dreams, thoughts, or feelings, even if you don’t think they are significant.  As you go through your day, write down any new thoughts or experiences that relate to your problem.  Do this for three to five days.  Then look over your notes.  You may discover that images you first thought were unrelated now make sense and give you clues to the overall pattern of your life.
