What Is Truth?

Golden Light_lrBy Harold Klemp

Those of you who have moved through several different levels of spiritual consciousness have found that your life can get rough at times. Why? Not because somebody in the dark alley is shooting arrows at you. It’s because you’re meeting yourself. And this is truth. Truth means meeting yourself.

It’s one of the paradoxes of truth. So many people claim to have truth. So many people claim to know it. But they can’t agree with each other about what truth is. And they’re ready to fight to the death to have their view of truth prevail.

This is wrong. Because if you have truth, you realize that another person has truth too, at his or her own level. There’s no reason to fight about it. Read More

An Open Door

By Mandy, New Zealand

I had just had surgery. Lying in my hospital bed after the operation, I heard a woman in the next room crying. I was not alone in my pain. My heart opened in compassion for the woman’s discomfort, and I hoped the nurse would get to her quickly and bring her some relief.

I needed some relief too. Now that the surgery was over, I knew it would take a long time for me to heal. I faced many months of recuperation.

I stared silently up at the ceiling, knowing that it would be difficult. I wasn’t sure I wanted to stay in my physical body. But as an ECKist, I also knew that all was in its rightful place. Every experience has a purpose. 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

Healing from Loss—A Special Dream

ECKANKAR, animals, healing, MahantaBy Cathy, California

My beloved Golden Retriever Kirby had cancer and pancreatitis. I did not do very well at all spiritually during the months before his translation. The thought of being separated from him in the physical was not only sad, but filled me with fear. He and his sister had been such bright lights during some of my darkest hours, and I could not imagine being without this bit of heaven here on earth.

After he translated I was very sad for months, and the sleep that I lacked during the months of nursing him day and night had really thrown me out of balance. After six months I had the following dream. I was riding a bicycle and both he and his sister were running alongside me. I knew that my destination was too far for them to continue and I wondered what to do. Read More

How to Make Good Decisions

06B44_BFBy Harold Klemp

Everyone wants to make good decisions.  But how do you know when you are being guided by the ECK or by the mind?  Here’s a simple way to tell.

If guided by ECK, you are more likely to change your mind when new information comes along.  You’re quicker to admit that an earlier decision based on sketchy information needs to change.

The mind has the power to make you believe you are always right.  That’s why a headstrong person acts so smart.  He thinks he’s always right, though he’s often wrong.

Excerpted from The Spiritual Exercises of ECK, where more than 130 spiritual exercises like this can be found. Learn more about spiritual exercises.

The Inner Master’s Guidance Helps Sidestep Spiritual Harm

By Murali, Singapore

The ECK or the Holy Spirit speaks to us all the time, providing guidance, protection and even answers to problems we face in life. All one has to do is be humble enough to listen to the silent voice of the ECK and follow its guidance. Sometimes this spiritual guidance comes by way of ‘waking dream’ experiences that help us sidestep spiritual harm.

I was driving along the highway, feeling frustrated and agitated about an issue that had come up between me and a colleague. Before I knew it, I was having angry thoughts and negative energy was slowly building up within. Just as this was happening, my thoughts were disrupted by a sharp sound of a very tiny object that flew out of nowhere and hit the front windscreen. It was as if I received a small jolt from the sound energy. I knew right away that it was a quick reminder from the Inner Master to watch my negative train of thoughts before they caused me spiritual harm. So I let the angry thoughts go. Read More

Our Songs of Love

By Pier, Florida

I just wanted to share something.

For many years I took my children to the local nursing homes to entertain the residents. My kids played the piano and guitar. I was the MC.

When we entertained, the elderly people, even the ones who were really “out of it,” began to smile, clap, and show some kind of happiness on their faces. Even though the children were not the most amazing singers, musicians, etc., it did not matter to the people. They clapped and begged us to come back soon. My son Eddy would play the guitar and we would go room to room singing to the patients. We always declared ourselves as vehicles for the ECK. Read More

The Way to Spiritual Freedom

By Harold Klemp

The way to spiritual freedom is really very easy. But first you’ve got to recognize that there is a need to have spiritual freedom. That’s a big step. Most people never come to that in a single lifetime. It never occurs to them that they don’t have spiritual freedom.

Once you come to the realization that you are without spiritual freedom, then comes the question of how you go about getting it. Read More

A Little Dog Helps During a Medical Situation

By Kathryn, Minnesota

Many animals have an uncanny way of knowing where they should go to get the help they need. Those with a higher consciousness even know where to go to give to those who need it.

—Animals Are Soul Too!, by Harold Klemp, p. 138

A while back, I scheduled an elective medical procedure with a registered nurse (RN). As her medical office was being remodeled, she asked if I’d be willing to have the procedure done at her home office. When I arrived, she was outside, talking on her cellular phone. She gestured to me to follow her inside her home.

Once inside, I met her small, fluffy white ball of fur that seemed to think he was a huge guard dog! As I stood in her foyer waiting for her to finish her conversation, I noticed the dog skulking around her and growling at me. Read More

Guardian Angel

Rebazar Tarzs_internetBy Harold Klemp

A ten-year-old girl went to the dentist to have a filling replaced. Since a nerve was exposed in her tooth, the dentist put in a temporary filling. In those days, dentistry wasn’t very evolved, and the filling wasn’t very good. Over the weekend when the dentist’s office was closed, the girl’s temporary filling fell out.

The exposed nerve caused the girl such great pain that she just lay in bed and cried and cried. Her mother couldn’t do anything to calm her down. Read More
