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

“There is an even greater law, and this is the Law of Love. This is the Law of Spirit, the Light and Sound of God. You can bring It into your own life, and when you do, there will be no one who can take It from you or tell you this or that way is right for you. You are going to know for yourself from direct experience with the Light and Sound of God.”

The Twin that Said Good-Bye

By Jack, Colorado

I was to be the cleric for a local ECK Light and Sound Service and thought it best to get a haircut. My longtime barber had translated (passed on) unexpectedly. His shop partner, Cheryl, had cut my hair on occasion, so I switched to her.

When I sat down in her barber chair, Cheryl asked the usual question: “How do you want your hair cut?”

I replied, “Just a light trim” and then added, “I’ll be wearing a suit this weekend and want to look nice.”

Even as these words were coming out of my mouth, I wondered, Why am I saying this?

I was soon to learn the answer. Read More

Eckankar Defined

This clip—and the transcript below—is from Harold Klemp’s talk “The Subtle Golden Thread of Love” in 2016.

 

I’d like to briefly define the meaning of Eckankar in Sanskrit, which is the classical language of India and Hinduism, it literally means “the one path.” We’ve taken the word Eckankar, and we define it as “Co-worker with God.” Then we further define it as the Religion of the Light and Sound of God, which tells how to become a Co-worker with God. And this Co-worker with God is an ECK Master. Read More

The Sacredness of Each Moment

El and Shelley Hyndman, decades-long members of Eckankar, shared their heartwarming love story with thousands of attendees at an Eckankar international seminar in Minneapolis, Minnesota. In the familiar, funny, conversational style of a longtime married couple, they brought their relationship’s sacred moments to the foreground.

Many years ago, while both Shelley and El were recovering from painful breakups, they connected unexpectedly on a sunlit beach filled with people. Although they’d met at Eckankar gatherings in the past, this encounter was intense and noteworthy. Read More

Why the ECK Master Clears Our Path

This clip—and the transcript below—is from Harold Klemp’s 2007 talk “It’s a Miracle!”

 

There are so many miracles that happen in our lives. Those of you who are in ECK just recognize the help of the Master and say, “Thank you” with a most grateful heart. You realize it’s a blessing done for some purpose.

It’s to help you on your way.

There’s a saying, which I’m just making up now: The Master goes ahead so that others may follow. And when people follow, they often say, “Gee, do you have to go over such rough stuff?” Read More

Bonds of Love—a Gift to Always Cherish

By Ruth, Ontario, Canada

My father was in the hospital recovering from a major heart attack when I was in my early twenties. I was not yet a member of Eckankar, and I was terribly afraid he was going to die.

After crying myself to sleep one night, I was awakened by a group of people at the foot of my bed. I knew them to be relatives who had passed on. My father’s mother was among them, making beckoning motions and appearing to say something. From this I took assurance that, when my father’s time did come, he would be met by those who loved him. There was nothing for him—or me—to fear.

Seven years later, I was married, had become an ECKist, and was preparing to follow my husband to England for his studies. Dad had become increasingly frail, and I knew I would likely not see him alive again. I was sad to go but comforted myself that he would not leave this world without finding a way to say good-bye.

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.

 

By Harold Klemp

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.
