Your Gifts

By Harold Klemp

“Truth, goodness, love, and beauty are commonly regarded as poetic ideas, but they are, in essence, spiritual facts. These are the ideas which one should include in his speech and thoughts. They are the language of Soul and must bring about an awakening of that pervading, persuasive urge in man to realize himself in his totality, as a being essentially spiritual and eternal. Truth as given by the ECK is neither esoteric, strange, nor fanciful. It is at once sublime, universal, and profoundly practical.”

The Shariyat-Ki-Sugmad, Book Two, p. 193 Read More

Key to the Door of Truth

Key to the Door of TruthBy Harold Klemp

How do you recognize truth?

Most people respond to the Light and Sound of God indirectly by listening to their intuition, trusting their feelings, or following their conscience.

But others do see the Light directly; It often appears before the Sound. They are two parts of the Voice of God, the ECK, which speaks to all whose spiritual eyes can see the mysteries of divine love.

Each of us is a unique individual, with our own peculiar combination of experiences accumulated over many lifetimes. The truth of ECK comes to each of us like a special key, custom-designed with millions of little notches and grooves. It is the only key that will fit the lock, turn it, and open the door of Soul.

What Is Truth?

Golden Light_lrBy Harold Klemp

Those of you who have moved through several different levels of spiritual consciousness have found that your life can get rough at times. Why? Not because somebody in the dark alley is shooting arrows at you. It’s because you’re meeting yourself. And this is truth. Truth means meeting yourself.

It’s one of the paradoxes of truth. So many people claim to have truth. So many people claim to know it. But they can’t agree with each other about what truth is. And they’re ready to fight to the death to have their view of truth prevail.

This is wrong. Because if you have truth, you realize that another person has truth too, at his or her own level. There’s no reason to fight about it. Read More

Spiritual Exercise: Show Me Love

show-me-loveBy Harold Klemp

If you don’t know anything about ECK, the main tool you have to work with at this point may be prayer—your communication with God. If you are sincerely interested in truth, in knowing who you are and why you belong here, ask God in your prayers: “Show me truth.”

If your heart is pure, the Lord will bring truth into your life. But don’t expect it to come in a way that fits your expectations; it may come in a different way. It may come through the gift of a book or by way of a person telling you one small step that you need to take before you can go to the next step. Read More

“I Want to Hear the Truth from God!”

Hearing the Sound of God

By Brian, Texas

I was born deaf. So my way of interpreting the world came mostly through sight. As I grew up, I developed a hunger for spiritual truth. I read a lot about different religions and a variety of paths, trying to find one that was right for me.

I studied everything from Christianity to metaphysical teachings. But no matter what I tried, none of these satisfied my hunger.

I felt lost. Read More

You’ve Lived Before, and You Will Live Again

ECKANKAR, Soul, Truth,By Harold Klemp

The great benefit of the ECK teachings is that they offer spiritual freedom.

Each religion holds out some promise to its followers.  The word of Christianity to its people is the redemption of sins, a problem that stems from Adam and Eve, who disobeyed God in the Garden of Eden.  Yet for their error, all future generations should carry the blame.  A Christian, lost spiritually at birth, has the stigma of this original sin automatically fastened to him.  Original sin means inborn guilt.

By contrast, the ECK teachings speak not of guilt but of responsibility.  People are where they have put themselves. Read More

Finding Your Own True Path to God

Wonder of WanderingBy Harold Klemp

Divine Spirit has provided many paths for Soul to take back to God.  Each path roughly fits the consciousness of a like-minded group.

That is why there is no reason to look down on any religious teaching.  The ECK Masters come to enliven, not destroy, religious teachings, because periodically the spiritual light dims. Read More
