ECK Worship Service Readings

Date:April 02, 2017
Topic:A TRUE MISSIONARY FOR ECK
Book:BE THE HU
Author:Harold Klemp
Reading:Be The HU Chp21pp170-171 by Sri Harold Klemp. The Mahanta, The Living ECK Master. Spiritual Leader of Eckankar.

“In ECK we have a missionary effort. You and I are missionaries. We in ECK realize that when we go out as missionaries we also have something to learn. …

I hope that as you go out as missionaries for ECK you realize that in every meeting with a person who doesn’t know about ECKANKAR, you have as much to learn as the other person does. In other words, it’s a two way street. As you give the message of the Light and Sound of God, there’s an equal amount for you to learn.

Topic:ACCEPTING CHANGE WITH GRACE
Book:How to Find God Mahanta Transcripts, Book 2
Author:Harold Klemp
Reading:How to Find God; Chpt 6 (pp.88-89) by Sri Harold Klemp. The Mahanta, The Living ECK Master. Spiritual Leader of Eckankar.

“When I lived on the farm as a young boy, it was a real treat to go down the road to the cheese factory with my dad. He’d load the milk cans onto our truck, and we’d drive over to the cheese factory. I watched as the milk was poured into a big vat, then into these huge tanks where the cheese was made. Sometimes the owner would give us a chunk of cheese as we sat there watching, and that made it a double treat. These were precious times, and I used to enjoy just being along.

But times change. Soon businesses were forced to become more economical. …

“It’s a sad thing for a child growing up to all of a sudden find that the things he used to enjoy are now changing. But in ECK, we don’t look to the past. When today is different from yesterday, we accept it. This is called living in the detached state of consciousness. We accept what we have here in the moment, without any regrets for the past.”

Topic:PAST LIVES AND PRESENT CONDITIONS
Book:Past Lives, Dreams, and Soul Travel
Author:Harold Klemp
Reading:Past Lives, Dreams and Soul Travel; Chp2 (p.18) by Sri Harold Klemp. The Mahanta, The Living ECK Master. Spiritual Leader of Eckankar.

“Sometimes people ask, ‘What does Eckankar have to offer that is unique? How is it different from Christianity?’ so I may speak to them of karma and reincarnation. People, in general, think of karma as an unpleasant force and less often as having a beneficial side. Take for example, Mozart, already composing music at age 5. The rule of Karma determines factors like male or female body, eye- hand coordination, long- short term memory retention, and desires. In addition, our karmic package includes race, ancestry, family, friends, economic and social standing, and much more besides.

However, what comes of those conditions depends upon exercise of our freewill.

The law of cause and effect, or the law of karma, is always in play your whole life. You must know how to live in harmony with its exacting terms. The experiences that derive from an adolescent or mature understanding of that law will, in time, bring you to an acceptance of divine love. That’s the reason you are here.

Topic:PEOPLE OF POWER, PEOPLE OF LOVE
Book:The Road to Spiritual Freedom
Author:Harold Klemp
Reading:The Road to Spiritual Freedom; Chpt (p.32) by Sri Harold Klemp. The Mahanta, The Living ECK Master. Spiritual Leader of Eckankar.

“All the good religions teach God’s love for Soul. But it boils down to how does any individual within that religion act? Does the person act from power or from love?

You see power’s got a whole bunch of little tricks in the bag. Like controlling others. People with a mind-set of power like to control others. They like to have fame. They like people to notice them. They like to be rich because it sets them apart from the rest. They like to carry their charity out in public – using other people’s money, of course. They feel it makes them more than a real human being, somebody who feels the pain of others. It’s just a self-serving lie. It doesn’t fool everybody, although it may fool most people.

Then there are the people with love. They act with kindness and charity to all. They act with diplomacy, if possible, but they would also defend their own.

People of love are not simply doves. They are birds of the air like, for example, eagles and hawks. It depends on what the situation calls for. In other words, they are well balanced spiritual beings.

Topic:CLEANSING THE SOUL BODY
Book:BE THE HU
Author:Harold Klemp
Reading:Be the HU, Chpt 19 (p.154) by Sri Harold Klemp. The Mahanta, The Living ECK Master. Spiritual Leader of Eckankar.

“Many of you as you progress in ECK, are changing your food habits quite naturally. You find that eating a certain food makes you feel better, and not eating another food also makes you feel better. Sometimes though, just for fun, you’ll go back and eat large quantities of something you’ve avoided for a while. …

It’s the same with spiritual food. As you progress in ECK, you find you are getting the spiritual food, sometimes unconsciously. The Light and Sound is coming into you as spiritual nutrition. And if you try to go back to the mental passions you used before – a full fury, gossip, or any of these things – the repercussions are much quicker and stronger than at any time in the past.

With the spiritual nutrition of the Light and Sound coming into you through the Spiritual Exercises of ECK, the Soul body has become much more sensitive. Before, you were able to get away with a certain lack of discipline with the mental passions. But now life hits you harder when you regress. It’s because you are beyond where you used to be.”

Topic:INNER COMMITMENT
Book:Cloak of Consciousness
Author:Harold Klemp
Reading:Cloak of Consciousness Chpt 2(pp20-21) By Sri Harold Klemp. The Mahanta, The Living ECK Master. Spiritual Leader of Eckankar.

“The ECK will help us in every way as we spread Its message among the people of this world. The miracles of ECK come more often to those who are working for Its cause. … .

The first step is to make a commitment, then try to follow through no matter what happens. Don’t be surprised if roadblocks get in your way. At first, the biggest obstacle will be your fears. But you’ll overcome them. When you’re ready to tackle a different area of service, another set of stumbling blocks will come along and try to slow you down.

These obstacles give you the opportunity to delve into your creative imagination. Constantly pushed to the wall, you have to make decisions and figure out ways to meet your commitment. This is part of spiritual unfoldment. Solving these problems expands the consciousness, and as the expansion occurs, you become more able to find solutions to the problems that would have defeated you yesterday.”

Topic:SERVICE - SOUL’S MISSION
Book:The Road to Spiritual Freedom
Author:Harold Klemp
Reading:The Road to Spiritual Freedom. p.18. By Sri Harold Klemp. The Mahanta, The Living ECK Master, Spiritual Leader of Eckankar.

“What is the purpose of service? So often you’ll hear me say; ‘Soul’s mission is to serve life.’ Some people who are yet to get more of the experience of divine love in their own life – in this life or some previous one – say’ How dull. It doesn’t sound like a very interesting thing to do. Life come but once. We should make the best of it. And what is this ‘serve life, serve God stuff?

Basically, it is helping people. It’s helping them do the things that they need to make life easier for them.
And in so doing, you are working for the holy Spirit. In so doing you are working for the good of other people. And in so doing, you’re doing much good for yourself.”

Topic:ACCEPTING FULL RESPONSIBILITY FOR YOUR LIFE
Book:The Road to Spiritual Freedom
Author:Harold Klemp
Reading:The Road to Spiritual Freedom (Chpt. )p.298 by Sri Harold Klemp. The Mahanta, The Living ECK Master. Spiritual Leader of Eckankar.

“As you move further along the path of God, you’re going to accept full responsibility for everything that happens in your life. Absolutely everything. You won’t try to blame someone else for it.

You will look deeply into yourself – if you even need to go to the trouble, if you even want to find out the reason instead of just accepting the fact that you are the initial cause of what has happened to you.

It’s just come back, that’s all.
You can search, but basically it’s your contract with the Holy Spirit. When things happen to you that are very difficult, the Holy Spirit is giving you a chance to go through some turmoil, pain or set back so that you may grow spiritually.”

As you grow spiritually, you will be purified and then move on to a higher state of consciousness.

Topic:SOLVING LIFE’S PROBLEMS
Book:The Secret Teachings Mahanta Transcripts, Book 3
Author:Harold Klemp
Reading:The Secret Teachings Chp8 (p.117) by Sri Harold Klemp, the Mahanta, the Living ECK Master, Spiritual Leader of Eckankar.

“No matter what problems are taken away from us, we must remember these are the worlds of time and space. Unless you have learned the detached state, how to take life as it comes without letting it crush you, it can crush you. We are looking for the preservation and survival of soul, not the physical body. Although we have records of spiritually evolved beings who live for centuries, most of us won’t have that mission.

So we are not looking for life eternal in the physical body or the resurrection of a body which has died, hoping that someday, we will be put together by some miraculous means and live forever in a reconstructed heaven on earth. Salvation isn’t for the physical body, it’s for soul. Here and now, while in the physical body, we are already learning how to move into the heavens in full consciousness and come back alive.

And why would you want to do this? To gain power over the fear of death. When you have gained this power there is nothing that can hold you back in this life. Problems become stepping stones, not obstacle

Topic:MAKING DECISIONS WITH MAHANTA’S HELP
Book:The Secret Teachings Mahanta Transcripts, Book 3
Author:Harold Klemp
Reading:The Secret Teachings Chp6 (p.70) by Sri Harold Klemp, the Mahanta, the Living ECK Master, Spiritual Leader of Eckankar.

ECK is not the intellectual path where we sit around and make more and more plans. ECK is the path of doing- the path of personal experience. It’s a marriage of plans with action.

If you come from a religion which bases its whole authority on faith, you have nothing to give you real assurance that what you believe is true. If you want good business advice, you don’t go to someone who hasn’t ever started his own business or gambled his own money or his decisions. He may have plenty of ideas about how you should handle you money, but you’ll be very foolish to listen to him. Why place your faith in untested products? Somewhere along the line, you’ve got to look for somebody who has experience, who has walked that path before. And if you can find that person, then there is a fair chance that the advice he gives will be something you can draw on with a reasonable amount of assurance. The same is true in the spiritual arenas. The role of the Living ECK Master is to give you spiritual guidance; he has walked the path before. If there’s something you want to know about your spiritual life, and you want to gain the experience to find out for yourself, then you can listen to this guidance. But be sure to prove it for yourself. Take any advice you gain from anywhere with a grain of salt.

Topic:SELF-SURRENDER
Book:BE THE HU
Author:Harold Klemp
Reading:Be The HU Chp1 (p5) by Sri Harold Klemp, the Mahanta, the Living ECK Master, Spiritual Leader of Eckankar.

“What are the steps for a chela to reach self-surrender?”

“I could give you a list of things, but it’d be a mental understanding. You’re never going to get rid of the five passions just with the mind. The spiritual exercises are the key to surrender.

Trust the ECK completely. Until you give up your fears and doubts, you’re going to find them barriers to the doors of heaven. Only love can open the door to the inner worlds.

When you do the spiritual exercises, fill yourself with love and goodwill. Then say, “I now put my inner experience into your hands, Mahanta. Take me to where ever is best for my own unfoldment at this particular time.” This will do much toward opening you for self-surrender. It’s about doing, not thinking.”

Topic:BREAKING THE CHAINS OF KARMA FOR SPIRITUAL LIBERATION
Book:The Living Word, Book 1
Author:Harold Klemp
Reading:The Living Word BK1 Chp (p42) by Sri Harold Klemp, the Mahanta, the Living ECK Master, Spiritual Leader of Eckankar.

Soul is a spark of God. It is in the lower worlds to gain experience to become a Co-worker with God. To break the chains of karma and acquire spiritual liberation. Soul must first find the Mahanta. He is the living embodiment of the ECK and can link Soul with the Sound Current. Soul can then ride that Wave back home, into the heart of God. Thereafter, It enjoys the attributes of wisdom, power and freedom. It can give service to God in whatever capacity is desired.

But there must be a beginning. Soul’s journey back home to God begins with the final disillusionment with Its present unfoldment , which has gone stale. Then it looks for truth, giving up the old religious precepts of Its spiritual childhood. At this point the individual may have an experience with the Sound Current, which the Mahanta gives for his benefit, to awaken his spiritual Eye.

The Mahanta may sometimes contact a person years before he comes across ECKANKAR. The latter may have no conscious recall of the Mahanta, Soul Travel or the Sound and Light of ECK. This contact, however, is made in response to his disillusionment with old religious beliefs.

Topic:LEARN TO LISTEN, LISTEN TO LEARN
Book:The Secret Teachings Mahanta Transcripts, Book 3
Author:Harold Klemp
Reading:The Secret teachings; Chpt7 pp103-104 By Sri Harold Klemp. The Mahanta, The Living ECK Master, Spiritual Leader of Eckankar

“The search for God requires a deep yearning. Soul hears the voice of God and wants to return to his home in heaven. In the meantime, it’s up to soul, in one way or another, to find a path that gives the help it needs to take this step. When you graduate from one level of education in the spiritual works, God provides a step, then another and another. No matter what path you are on, or what faith you follow, be the best there is in it, be the cream of the crop. Because until you are that, you haven’t learned the lessons that you need to learn; and until they are learned, you will not be able to graduate to the next step and learn the greater truth.”
