Topic:GOD IN EXPRESSION
Book:Unlocking Your Sacred Puzzle Box
Author:Harold Klemp
Reading:

Unlocking Your Sacred Puzzle Box Chp11 p185, by Sri Harold Klemp, the Mahanta, the Living ECK Master, Spiritual Leader of Eckankar.

“As we go about our day, ideas come through on how to solve problems, how to make our work easier, and how to make things better for someone else. These ideas come from the creative imaginations which, to state it as simply as possible, is God in expression, manifesting Its creation in this world through our actions. This is God speaking through us. The creative imagination is the element that makes us godlike.

By keeping his attention on the ECK, the ECKist is uplifted and spiritualized, so that his interactions with his family, friends, and neighbors ideally are of the highest nature.”

Topic:TRUE VALUE, TRUE LOVE
Book:What Is Spiritual Freedom? Mahanta Transcripts, Book 11
Author:Harold Klemp
Reading:

What Is Spiritual Freedom Chp8 p107 by Sri Harold Klemp, the Mahanta, the Living ECK Master, Spiritual Leader of Eckankar.

“Sometimes ECKists become complacent. They get lazy. They know that singing HU can help them in their daily life. But it's like anything else, like a good spouse. You can take the good spouse for granted. And you forget that what builds a relationship is love.

How does love work?

It's sometimes holding your tongue when you'd rather not. It means being a little more patient, a little more understanding. It means giving your spouse the benefit of the doubt even as your spouse does the same for you when you're not feeling well.
An expression of love, of true love, expresses divine love. That is why the path of ECK is the path of love. It's live and let live.

Topic:THE EFFECTS OF OUR THOUGHTS, WORDS AND DEEDS
Book:The Road to Spiritual Freedom
Author:Harold Klemp
Reading:

The Road to Spiritual Freedom. Chp. 15, Pp.334-335.  By Sri Harold Klemp. The Mahanta, The Living ECK Master.
 
Every thought, word, or deed either purifies or pollutes the body. Now, this is very important, very powerful because you are dealing with states of consciousness.

If, at some point, you find you need an edge for health or for peace of mind, look at what you’re putting out there, or what is around you – what’s coming in. look at whatever your form of music is, or your form of news – whatever ways you let the external world enter into your internal world.

Because what’s coming in is going to go back out there. And then it bounces like an echo; it comes back. And so it strengthens and eventually has a very strong influence on you. And this influence can be either beneficial or harmful. So the choice is yours.

Topic:ACTING IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE SPIRITUAL LAWS
Book:The Living Word, Book 3
Author:Harold Klemp
Reading:

The Living Word Book 3. p.253 (para 3-4) By Sri Harold Klemp. The Mahanta, The Living ECK Master. Spiritual Leader of Eckankar

The ECK is the mainstay of life. Those who obey the spiritual laws of this divine force will naturally do the right thing in the right way. Most people are unconscious agents of this power. They do gain much by it, however, unconscious or not. 

A member of Eckankar, though, learns to become more conscious of the ECK and its ways. To become more aware of the ECK and its ways requires a new state of consciousness. One who can enter into it sees a broader, richer, and deeper playing out of the workings of creation in the divine order of things. He gets to look behind the scenes. He sees spiritual reasons why certain things are so.

 A greater awareness leads to a greater love, both in seeing and receiving of it.

Topic:BECOMING THE SPIRITUAL SURVIVOR
Book:The Golden Heart Mahanta Transcripts, Book 4
Author:Harold Klemp
Reading:

The Golden Heart  Chpt 8  p143  by Sri Harold Klemp, the Mahanta, the Living ECK Master, Spiritual Leader of Eckankar.

“…..You must take responsibility for your own spiritual life. That means if one spiritual exercise doesn't work for you, then you try another. First know where you are going, and then do what it takes to get there. Look for the open doors, and know that there is always a way out. 

Wherever you go, expect the most from life, and be willing to pay the price. When you can do this, you will have become the spiritual survivor who will survive under any conditions; and when you have finished your experiences on earth, you will have gained an incredible degree of strength and courage. You will be prepared to face the worlds to come with confidence, knowing you are protected by the hand of the Holy Spirit."

Book:Shariyat-Ki-Sugmad (The Way of Eternal) Bk.2
Author:Paul Twitchell
Reading:

Shariyat-Ki-Sugmad (The Holy Sriptures of Eckankar) Book 2 page 81 

“It is love and love only which will admit the seeker to all the heavenly worlds, for it is the golden coin which must be presented when entering the high regions of Spirit. Nothing else will do because the doors of these worlds will not open for any other reason.  If the karma of man has brought him nothing more than a capacity to love, then he has not lived in vain for a thousand past lives.  It is this love which makes the most humble of Souls so great that it lifts him beyond all human life into the worlds of God.  Every person who loves, even a little, in purity and unselfishness, contributes that much toward the elevation of the whole of the human race.”

Topic:IT TAKES TWO SIDES
Book:Unlocking Your Sacred Puzzle Box
Author:Harold Klemp
Reading:

Unlocking Your Sacred Puzzle Box  Chpt 9  pp154-155 by Sri Harold Klemp, the Mahanta, the Living ECK Master, Spiritual Leader of Eckankar.

“We go through life wanting things our own way.  But all too often we run into others who disagree with us. Words lead to more words, until finally we are in such a predicament that we can't back off-to do so would mean we'd lose face. Yet, one of  the biggest lessons we can learn in ECK is to do everything possible to reach an accord with the individual with whom we are  having a problem. But that doesn't mean it's always going to work.

... In ECK, as we come out of the childhood of spirituality and move into the greater states of awareness, we learn to let other people be. So even when it simply is not possible to reach an agreement, we can still figure out ways to make the situation livable for ourself and others. Saving face is an important element in a person's self-esteem. ..."

Topic:DEVELOPING QUALITIES FOR MASTERSHIP
Book:The Living Word, Book 3
Author:Harold Klemp
Reading:

The Living Word Bk3 (Chpt 33. )Pp189-192 by Sri Harold Klemp. The Mahanta, The Living ECK Master. Spiritual Leader of Eckankar.

“… I’ll try to share a few musings about the many chelas in ECK, including you, and what it takes to reach the heart of God. …
“What is among the first lessons a candidate must master?

In a word, PATIENCE.  The word jumps right out at you, doesn’t it? Patience. It’s a hard one to learn. The dictionary says that one who is patient bears pains or trials calmly or without complaint. See? The bar is set high. But don’t worry; the Mahanta, the Living ECK Master knows you can’t learn patience all at once, and he doesn’t expect it all at once. …

“Let’s look at another quality you need to develop on the way to ECK Mastership: HUMILITY.                                                          … One who seeks humility must “destroy the power, independence, or prestige of …Ego.” ….

“… The third divine quality we’ll speak of here is LOVE: divine love, a love excelling. Life provides us with lots of opportunities to become love itself, pure love beyond all telling. It’s by way of

Topic:LEARN TO TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF
Book:How the Inner Master Works Mahanta Transcripts, Book 12
Author:Harold Klemp
Reading:

How The Inner Master Works (Chp 8)pp147 by Sri Harold Klemp. The Mahanta, The Living ECK Master. Spiritual Leader of Eckankar.

“… As a child of God, you have the divine ability to become whatever you want to, even self-sufficient human beings.

Until you can take care of yourself, you cannot take care of anyone else. This is the principle behind a Co-worker with God.

These Co-workers are strong in God and able to take care of themselves. And because they have learned how to do that, they are able to take care of others around them. These are the strong people of God, not the slavish wimps created by social programs that discourage self-help.

… I would like to remind you that you are a child of God. If you have forgotten because you’re older than four, you must try singing HU, the love song to God.

Author:Harold Klemp
Reading:

Our Spiritual Wake-Up Calls Chp9 p198 by Sri Harold Klemp. The Mahanta, The Living ECK Master. Spiritual Leader of Eckankar. 

“All of you are in the grasp of divine love. All the time, every day, no matter where you go.

So as you go home today, no matter what happens, know that you are in the grasp of divine love. Know that God’s love is sufficient for you in all ways. And that if you need help, you don’t even have to ask for it because this love is already with you.

The protection of God is as close to you as your heartbeat and as near to you as your own breath.

Topic:BIRTH AND DEATH
Book:Past Lives, Dreams, and Soul Travel
Author:Harold Klemp
Reading:

Past Lives, Dreams and Soul Travel. Pp.57-58 (para 8ff)By Sri Harold Klemp. The Mahanta,The Living ECK Master, Spiritual Leader of Eckankar.

“Birth is the miracle by which Soul enters a new physical body. It’s the opening chapter of our life, while death marks the last. But death’s victory is brief. Our first cries as a newborn, like the probing fingers of dawn, herald an awakening from a night of rest.

Soul is eternal. That is its heritage. Through ageless cycles of the miracle of birth, Soul continues its quest to become more like Its creator. Its like a bee that must find the nectar.

An individual matures, then dies; his atoms return to dust. Yet before ages past, the Lords of Karma stir the dust to create a new body for him. And so he begins another round on the wheel of life.

Death is thus a passing from one chapter of life to another, and from there to still another. The process is a natural one. It’s been part of your experience many times in the past. But you can stop this cycle. The teachings of ECK show how you too can find spiritual freedom in this very lifetime.”

Book:The Drumbeat of Time
Author:Paul Twitchell
Reading:

The Drumbeat of Time Chpt 3 p28 by Sri Harold Klemp. The Mahanta, The Living ECK Master. Spiritual Leader of Eckankar.

“ECKists are finding out that it’s OK to be charitable, to love people, and to do something for others. But you don’t need praise and recognition from others for the things you do for ECK. Spiritually, your reward will come to you many times over.

People who give to others find that they have better health and enjoy a happier life than those who have yet to learn the blessings of giving of themselves. And the giving is usually better when no one knows you’ve done it. You have the quiet satisfaction of knowing that you have acted as a channel for God. No one knows except God – and God knows.”

Topic:BLACK MAGIC - WHITE MAGIC
Book:The Road to Spiritual Freedom
Author:Harold Klemp
Reading:

The Road to Spiritual Freedom. Chp. 13, Pp.303,. By Sri Harold Klemp. The Mahanta, The Living ECK Master.

“Singing HU is not to change another’s state of mind, because that is black magic. I know that is cutting the definition of black magic very fine, but that’s how we see it in ECK.

Whenever you try to change another to your way of thinking, or your state of consciousness, through prayer or in some other way, that’s black magic. An in this respect, black magic and white magic are the same. Some people try to separate the two, but it’s changing somebody else’s life without his permission. That’s black magic, and it’s a violation of spiritual law. The violator must someday pay.”

Topic:THE LAW OF RETURNS: IN THE ARMS OF LOVE
Book:The Road to Spiritual Freedom
Author:Harold Klemp
Reading:

The Road to Spiritual Freedom. Chp. 12, Pp.274-275,. By Sri Harold Klemp. The Mahanta, The Living ECK Master.

“We’re talking about the Law of returns. Another way of speaking about the Law of Returns would be to say; ‘in the arms of love’. Because no matter what happens, it’s spiritually because God loves us.

God set out this world. God allows the negative power to exist and to move about, because the so-called Satan is testing you. And what is testing you with? Not evils that come from outside there somewhere, but evils that have come from inside you at some time or another.

There are two kinds of people, the master and the victim. There are lots of victims today. A master accepts complete responsibility for everything he does. That means paying his own way. And when something goes wrong, he recognizes not just the apparent trigger for it, which might look as some else coming down on him. A master recognizes where it truly originates.

Topic:TOUCHED BY THE ECK
Book:Journey of Soul Mahanta Transcripts, Book 1
Author:Harold Klemp
Reading:

Journey of Soul Chp13 p185, by Sri  Harold Klemp, the Mahanta, the Living ECK Master, Spiritual Leader of Eckankar.   

“A man who hadn't yet come across Eckankar and this ability to move in other states of awareness learned that the ECK will get in touch with you when the time is right. He was in the library preparing a research paper. While digging through the books on a lower shelf, all of a sudden a book fell on top of his head from the shelf  above - for no reason. It was The Spiritual Notebook by Paul Twitchell. He picked it up and was just going to stick it back on the shelf, but first he opened it. "Oh, yeah!" he said. "This is what I've been looking for." A few of the creative techniques are given in this book, and it's available here for those of you who would like to try some of them.

Read some of the books, look Eckankar over, and if there is any interest, decide: Is this something that you are looking for? What we're looking for  in learning the way of ECK is a greater ability to meet our life. When anything comes up, instead of being plowed under the forces of life, flattened by the steamrollers of the negative forces, we say, "I have the temple within myself," and we figure out what to do. It will give an idea, a nudge to take the next step, to figuring a way out of the predicament."
