Becoming a Mature Soul—The ECK Way to Pray

By Harold Klemp

There are a lot of people who pray to God in the wrong way. They want others to do things their way, so they use prayer to control others and bring about their own wishes. It’s like a basketball team praying together before a game: “Dear God, help us win.” Meanwhile, on the opposite side of the court the other guys are busy doing the same thing. What kind of prayer is that? Read More

How to Let Go without Feeling Guilty

difficult people, Harold Klemp, patience, sin and guilt, spiritual insightBy Harold Klemp

Q: Can you give a spiritual insight on: How to expand into a more patient, more loving being? How to let go of attitudes or people that are hurting me spiritually? How to let go of them without having feelings of sin or guilt?

A: Yours is an excellent question. It bothers others too. The key is “without having feelings of sin and guilt,” because that phrase puts the concern into down-to-earth living.

Notice how changes in nature are most often over eons of time. The heat and cold of desert mountains set rocks to tumble—one here, another there. Eons pass. But the ages see those mountains turn into gentle, rolling hills. Read More

A Fork in the Road

A Fork in the RoadThe question below (by Jack, age 19, California) is answered by Harold Klemp, spiritual leader of Eckankar.

Q: I feel that I am at a crossroads. I know the path people want me to take, but I am unsure if that’s what I really want. With such complicated decisions ahead of me, how do I know what is truly best for me as Soul?

A: Soul loves experience. Crossroads are a vital, though unsettling, part of living. In a way, Soul sings though the human self weeps.

Sometimes we have to play along with people who virtually demand we do their bidding. Time used in this way can be put to good use: letting us meet key people to help us in the future, gaining new knowledge or skills, or teaching us patience.

So how will you know what is truly best for you? You learn by doing. Experience will make it sparkling clear if there’s a better direction for you.

A bit of advice is to not burn your bridges behind you. You may need them later.

Your State of Consciousness Is Your State of Acceptance

Your State of Consciousness Is YOur State of AcceptanceBy Harold Klemp

An individual’s state of consciousness simply means his ability to accept change in his life.

It includes new thoughts and new feelings, and the new behavior and actions that will naturally come as a result.

A state of consciousness is also flexible in that it swells (expands) and shrinks (contracts). Some events in our lives make us full of joy and goodwill, another way of saying an expansion of consciousness. Other events leave us suspicious or hostile or gloomy—a contraction.There are temporary changes in one’s state of consciousness as well as more long-lasting ones, the sum of all the lesser changes.
