How to Read The Worlds of ECK Chart

This is a road map to the inner planes or heavens. You can use this chart to plan your spiritual travels or to better understand where you have been or what you have experienced.

Worlds_of_ECK_color_HI

There is a bold line dividing the top half and lower half of the chart; this separates the lower worlds from the higher God Worlds of ECK. Thus, the chart shows which worlds are predominantly negative and which are positive (this is noted on the left side of the chart). The right side of the chart shows that the lower worlds are the training ground for Self-Realization and the higher worlds are the training ground for God-Realization. Read More

Spiritual Exercise: Listening for God

ECKANKAR, God, Holy SpiritBy Harold Klemp

Try this simple spiritual exercise to help you hear and see the two aspects of God, the Light and Sound.

Go somewhere quiet.  Sit or lie down in a comfortable place.  Put your attention on your Spiritual Eye, a point just above and behind your eyebrows.  With eyes lightly shut, begin to sing a holy word or phrase, such as HU, God, Holy Spirit, or “Show me thy ways, O Lord.”  But fill your heart with love before you approach the altar of God, because only the pure may come.

Be patient.  Do this exercise for several weeks, for a limit of twenty minutes each time.  Sit, sing, and wait.  God speaks to you only when you are able to listen.

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

Pure Love

Santa Monica 4_lrBy Harold Klemp

Q: What is the difference between the love one has for one’s mate and the love Soul has for God?

Is one sort of love better than the other?  And is it still possible to fall in love with someone after you reach God Consciousness?

A: The highest love is a pure love for God.

A pure love for one’s mate is the same as a pure love for God.  There is no difference.  But, frankly, pure love is a rarity—whether for God or for mate.

“Falling in love” usually means falling into karma.  Karma—good, bad, or neutral—sets the tone for a relationship.  For example, some couples love to fight.

The attraction between people of a high state of consciousness is a mutual desire to serve God and life.  Such a couple join forces to help each other reach even higher states of being.

A high, pure love is sweet indeed.

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

My ECK Seminar Transformation

By Corey, Georgia

After returning from the 2015 ECK Springtime Seminar this year, I felt like a completely different person. I’ve never felt the Mahanta’s presence so closely, ever! I realized that all of the events that make up my day have been put there for a reason. Sure, I need a job so I can afford to live, but why this job? Why do I know these people? I had this new sense of knowingness that my only real purpose is to serve God. Every person, place, and thing that makes up my world here on this physical plane was put here in order to help me grow and so I would have the opportunity to help others grow. Read More

How Dreams Can Help Us

John V Autumn_7By Harold Klemp

Q: How can our dreams help us?

A: Dreams are like a daily report card. They show how you are doing in your spiritual mission, even if you don’t know you have one. Dreams tell how you are getting on in your relationship with God and life.

There is a spiritual side to every experience or event, no matter how large or small, and whether or not it occurs in every day life or in a dream.

But—and this is a big but—few people have the spiritual eyes to see.

Most people are in a daze but don’t know it. They have hardly any idea about their life in the higher spiritual worlds while their body lies asleep at day’s end.

Molly and the Great Unmovable

DSC02149By Harold Klemp

For years my wife and I shared our home with a little dog named Molly.  Eventually she lost her sight and hearing, but she was still filled with love—and she was still every bit as stubborn as a puppy.

Molly’s goal was to understand the great unmovable, which happened to be our library bookcase.  We had set a protected area in the living room where she could walk around.  The walls were foam-padded but the front of the bookcase was not.  Yet Molly toddled along so slowly that she really couldn’t hurt herself.

As soon as she got up from her bed, she headed straight to the bookcase, and for some reason she proceeded to press against it with all her might.  We were not sure whether she wanted to shove it over or if she was trying to absorb all the wisdom she could from the books. Read More

The Blizzard of a Lifetime

By Elisabeth, Austria

I found myself in a situation that forced me to confront my fear.

It had started snowing heavily in the morning. And when I was driving home from University in the evening, the snowstorm raged hard. Carefully, I started my way homewards on the icy roads.

The storm hit 100 km/h and the blowing snow intensified. Read More
