|Topic:||GOD IS LOVE|
|Book:||We Come as Eagles Mahanta Transcripts, Book 9|
|Reading:|| We come as Eagles p.25 by Sri Harold Klemp. The Mahanta, The Living ECK Master. Spiritual Leader of Eckankar.|
“God loves, but not because we deserve it or have earned it. The reason is simply that God is love, therefore God loves. We are Soul, god’s creation, and It loves us because that is ITS nature. We have to recognize that we, as Soul, must one day come into the fulfilment of our spiritual being too. We, as Soul, must become love.
We can never become God, but we can become Godlike. In becoming Godlike, we begin to share this divine quality of unconditional, no-strings-attached love. It’s the kind of love that continues even when the person gives us nothing back. We just love. Sometimes it is called goodwill, which is a good way to give love to the world.
Of course, even though we give goodwill to our family members, we also give human love. This is the warm love that sometimes slips into imposing conditions; it is a normal human trait. When we are among our loved ones, we see each other’s dirty laundry and faults. We can’t always hold ourselves to the high state of divine love, moment by moment. It is not within us because we simply have not reached that spiritual state. But what we can do is set our sights to entering into the state of divine love permanently.”

|Topic:||RIGHT WAY TO PRAY: “MAY THE BLESSINGS BE”|
|Book:||The Slow Burning Love of God Mahanta Transcripts, Book 13|
|Reading:||The Slow Burning Love of God Chp8 Pp154-155 By Sri Harold Klemp. The Mahanta, The Living ECK Master. Spiritual Leader of Eckankar.|
“ In ECK, we have our own kind of non-directed prayer, and this is the blessing of the Vairagi ECK Masters, essentially the same as “Thy will be done.” We say, “May the blessings be.”
We don’t say, “God bless this person,” or “God, heal this.” It gets very difficult if you have an illness to say, “God, I need more red blood cells. Produce more red blood cells.” It may be exactly the wrong thing. You might need more white blood cells.
Directed prayer doesn’t work as well because it depends upon the human consciousness and all its ignorance. But nondirected prayer depends upon the divine power, the higher power. It depends upon the power of God. So whether you say “Thy will, not mine, be done,” or as we in ECK say, “May the blessings be,” this is the proper spiritual way to direct your own life.
“If you have a health problem, or if you’re having a problem finding work or keeping the job you have, or if you’re having a problem with your loved one or someone not so loved – instead of saying, “God, help me be stronger,” maybe just try “Thy will be done.” It’s unconditional love that makes such a prayer. And this is important.
What many people don’t realize is that God’s love, too, is unconditional love. Soul exists because God loves It. That means you exist because God loves you.

|Topic:||SUCCESS WITH THE SPIRITUAL EXERCISES OF ECK|
|Book:||The Golden Heart Mahanta Transcripts, Book 4|
|Reading:||The Golden Heart Chp4, p52 By Sri Harold Klemp, the Mahanta the Living ECK Master, Spiritual Leader of Eckankar. |
“The real problem that people have with the Spiritual Exercises of ECK and their inability to see the Light or hear the Sound of God is a lack of self-discipline. They simply do not have the self- discipline to do the spiritual exercises every day, with love. This is where we find the Shield of Silver Light, which is the principle of love.
The spiritual exercises work best when done with goodwill, a feeling of happiness in your heart, and with joy in the expectation of seeing the Mahanta. On the inner planes. the Mahanta is the representation of the SUGMAD. Which is often seen in the form of the Living ECK Master. If you can fill yourself with love, you have a very good chance of being successful in Soul Travel.
How do you evoke the spirit of love? You can do it in any number of ways. For instance, when you go into contemplation, you can put your thoughts and mind upon a past experience where you were filled with love. This will set the tone for your state of consciousness. Then begin chanting one of the secret names of God or your personal word.
You are the one who must set the tone of love and let it fill your heart. Your whole being has to be filled with love, not from your head but from your heart. …”

|Topic:||TAKING RESPONSIBILITY FOR YOUR ACTIONS|
|Book:||Cloak of Consciousness|
|Reading:||Cloak of Consciousness Chp13. pp213-214 by Sri Harold Klemp. The Mahanta, The Living ECK Master. Spiritual Leader of Eckankar. |
“In a hotel I saw a sign management had posted for benefit of the employees. The title was, “Don’t Pass the Buck.” The sign read, “Blaming others is a bad excuse which keeps us from change and growth. Let’s look at ourselves clearly and honestly. Only then can we improve and overcome our shortcomings.” This refers to self-responsibility. It was very well stated…..
The dreamer in ECK must look at himself clearly. He must understand that the circumstances he finds himself in today are those he created for himself sometime in the past. As the creative dreamer, he can take control of his life today and begin to change his circumstances into something that will make him happier.
To be the creative dreamer is to work with the creative principle of Soul. Soul is a spark of God. The creative principle that we are trying to learn to express is the creative power of God.
As one learns to express these creative abilities, he becomes a Co-worker with God. No matter what comes up, no matter how difficult the circumstance, he finds a way to make the situation a little better. He is able to come out of it a little bit happier than when he went into it.
The creative dreamers, whether they are on the path of ECK or not, are generally people who are responsive to their own dreams. They are highly successful in life and in their chosen profession.”
