Being Closer to God

By Harold Klemp

Marie is a very busy mom. She teaches some ECK classes and is active at the ECK Center. But at home, her first devotion is to her husband and her three children, some of whom are teens. And Marie now has the feeling she’s coming close to an understanding of who and what she is.

This is what everyone should be looking for: to find out who and what you are.

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

A Taxi Driver’s Answered Prayer

A Taxi Driver's Answered PrayerBy Harold Klemp

Every month Sophia and a friend go from Mexico City to Guadalajara to teach a Satsang class. They’re Higher Initiates. The flight takes about an hour each way. When they arrive back home, they get a taxi.

One time they found that their taxi driver was a woman. This is very unusual in Mexico, so they commented on it to their driver. They said, “Very unusual, but we’re happy to have you.”

They started going to their respective homes. As they were driving along, the cab driver overheard them talking in back. She said, “Do you teach a class?” They said, “Yes, we do.” “A class on what?” Read More

Taking the Next Step

Eckankar’s sacred scriptures, The Shariyat-Ki-Sugmad, speak of  ECK Masters. They are advanced spiritual beings who far exceed the normal human capacity for giving and receiving divine love and yet continue to spiritually evolve. They help others use imagination, among other spiritual gifts, to embark upon journeys of self-discovery and freedom.

This inspiring  passage from The Shariyat-Ki-Sugmad, Book Two, and the spiritual exercise that follows it, offers a simple way to exercise the creative ability of Soul, the eternal self. Limitless possibilities dwell within the Ocean of Love and Mercy—source of the life-giving Light and Sound of God.

I Am Always with You

ECKANKAR, Harold Klemp, Spiritual Leader, Inner MasterEckankar conducted a “Journey of Spiritual Discovery” survey that asked questions about ECKists’ experiences. A survey question was “What unanswered spiritual questions did you have PRIOR to finding Eckankar?” The responses of one ECKist seem to reflect a world where many people have lost their heart connections. This person recalled asking, “Am I loved? Am I worthy? Am I alone in this?”

In the following story Linda, an ECKist in Nigeria, shares a personal experience that answered these questions for her. 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
