How God’s Love Enters the Human Heart

By Harold Klemp

An agnostic joined Eckankar. He stayed an agnostic for a long time, but he developed a great respect for life.

He used to love to go fishing. He’s from the midwestern United States, and he’d go out to the western part of Colorado to do his trout fishing.

This man used a special hook that had no barbs so that he could unhook the fish with the smallest amount of injury and throw the fish back into the stream. He’d thank the fish, the way the Native Americans used to. They always gave thanks for any food that they needed to take from the theater of life because they realized that to survive one must eat another, whether it’s animal or plant. It’s a part of living.

Today we have people who are very self-righteous about being vegetarians. They feel they are more righteous because they don’t eat meat. They are eating plants, as if plants don’t have life or consciousness. Read More

Why are you here? What is your purpose? Is it just a random walk in time and space without a reason for the beginning and the end of this cycle? What’s it all about? Read More

Breaking Down the Walls

By Harold Klemp

Sometime in contemplation or in prayer, maybe as a spiritual exercise, in your mind’s eye just see a room with three distinct parts. A semicircular room where you are at the point of the room and the room curves out around you, divided into three parts. You can look into each one: past, present, and future. But there is a wall separating each of the three parts.

Dissolve those two walls between those three parts and see what happens. Read More

Why I Am an ECKist

By Rodney, New York

I have been asked by a number of people, and I am sure many more wonder, why are you an ECKist? What does it mean to be an ECKist?

Well the textbook description of an ECKist is a person who is a member of Eckankar. To many I suppose it sounds strange, a name they have not heard before, unknown terms like Light and Sound, and Mahanta.

I won’t share here what ECKANKAR is in an academic sense, rather, I will share what it means to me, what my experience of almost 40 years has been. Read More
