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 Butterfly Teaches a Woman How to Love

ECKANKAR, Reincarnation, Holy SpiritBy Harold Klemp

A family was moving from the East Coast to the West Coast of the United States.  As soon as they had settled into their new home, the mother knew that this had been the wrong move to make.

Her husband’s new company was very unfriendly toward him, and everything about their new home felt wrong.  Over the weeks, the woman became more and more unhappy.

One evening just before dinner, her daughter came into the kitchen.  In her hand on a little piece of paper, there sat a butterfly.  It was a wood nymph, a brown butterfly with dark spots on its wings.

“Mommy, look what I found outside,” the daughter said. Read More

Coffee Break

By Harold Klemp

One Saturday morning a woman and her husband decided to go shopping at an expensive home-furnishings store.  The company was having a warehouse sale that began at 10:00 a.m.  Right next to the warehouse was the regular store, which opened at 9:00 a.m.

The couple arrived about fifteen minutes before the regular store opened.  Outside in the cold, unloading a furniture truck, was a young man.  The couple asked him if there was a coffee shop nearby where they could wait.  The young man gave them directions, and they set off.

They drove around for about ten minutes but couldn’t find the coffee shop, so they came back to the warehouse.  The young man was still unloading furniture.  He gave them the directions again, but they thanked him and said they’d just wait inside the store. Read More

The Australian Schoolteacher

ECKANKAR, ECK Parable, Waking Dream, Holy SpiritBy Harold Klemp

A teacher in Australia had finished a particularly rough day with her students.  She taught French to children ages seven or eight.  Because it was hot they were unruly that day, and she couldn’t do anything to maintain order in the classroom.

A citywide train strike was on that week.  Instead of taking a ten-minute train ride home, after school let out that evening the teacher had to get on the bus and ride for several hours.  The buses were very overcrowded because of the strike, and there was no air conditioning.

Sitting near the front of the bus, the woman mulled over what had happened during the day.  Inwardly she seethed.  How difficult the children had been!  Her thoughts went round and round as she got angrier.

Suddenly the bus driver’s radio crackled as a communication came through.  Another driver was calling the command center.  “The needle on my heat gauge is going up and up,” he said.  “What do I do?” Read More
