|Topic:||OUR PURIFICATION - TAKING A STEP TOWARDS SELF MASTERY|
|Book:||A Modern Prophet Answers your Key Questions about Life|
|Reading:||Modern Prophet Answers Your Key Questions About Life, Chpt 2 (pp.25-26) by Sri Harold Klemp. The Mahanta, The Living ECK Master. Spiritual Leader of Eckankar.|
“Troubles that come to us are for our purification. They come to us because we must learn a divine law.
Divine Spirit will use the most negative situation to teach us, and we wonder, why has God forsaken me? God has not forsaken us. We are unwilling to give up certain passions of the mind and take the next step in our spiritual development. Habits fall away once Soul decides It really wants spiritual realisation more than Its vices.
The Spiritual life is not meant to finally end the succession of problems, for they are given as opportunities for Soul’s unfoldment. What the spiritual student thus develop, however, is the inner link with the ECK, the Holy Spirit. Thus he taps into the Supreme Creative Force that guides him around all the blocks in his path that once defeated him.
One’s ability to take charge of his own life increases. This is a solid step towards self-mastery and that state of consciousness called the kingdom of heaven..”

|Topic:||THE SPIRITUAL EXERCISES OF ECK: AWAKENING THE GOD KNOWLEDGE WITHIN|
|Book:||The Secret of Love-Mahanta Transcripts, Book 14|
|Reading:||The Secret of love, Chpt 2 (p44) by Sri Harold Klemp. The Mahanta, The Living ECK Master. Spiritual Leader of Eckankar.|
“Being in ECK involves self-responsibility. No one cares if you do the spiritual exercises or if you don’t.
But if you care about yourself, you should care whether you do them. Because you have this spiritual tool to rise in consciousness so that instead of being a victim of life-as so many people wrongly believe they are-you will have choices.
The choices don’t just happen. You make them. If you make a series of right choices, they will spiritualize you. In ECK, this upliftment comes through the Spiritual Exercises of ECK. This is all I have to offer you.
My talks go several different ways, and so do the writings. Some of them are instructive where I give actual rules: Do this or that if you want to accomplish this or that. But many of the talks are purely for inspiration. Because as Soul, you have the God-knowledge within you. My main job is to awaken the knowledge and love for divine things that are already in your heart. You are Soul. You are a child of God.
And your spiritual destiny is to become a Co-worker with God, to spread divine love to all those around you.”

|Topic:||SOLVING LIFE’S PROBLEMS|
|Book:||The Secret Teachings Mahanta Transcripts, Book 3|
|Reading:||Secret Teachings, Chpt 8 (Page 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 obstacles that trip you.”

|Topic:||PRAYER, WORSHIP AND CHARITY|
|Book:||The Living Word, Book 2|
|Reading:||The Living Word Book 2. Pp.76- 77 by Sri Harold Klemp, the Mahanta, the Living ECK Master, Spiritual Leader of Eckankar. |
“Prayer is sometimes a part of worship. What is true worship? To my mind, it is any act that brings one closer to God.
And true prayer? It is either a private or public act that acknowledges the wisdom and all-seeing power of God. Also, it is having the grace to accept God’s will as it appears, though it might differ from our own idea of what His will should be.
So, true prayer does not try to bend the will of God to suit our own purposes.
How can you tell when someone –even you- is living a life of true worship? Simply look to see how much charity that person demonstrates toward others in his or her daily life.
What is charity? It is our expression of goodwill toward others.
In whatever of a thousand or more forms it may take, our behaviour speaks volumes about whether or not we have charity.
What is the connection between true worship, prayer and charity? If our relationship with God is one of love, we would act with charity towards others. Our prayers will accept our lot as God has given it, depending upon better conditions to come from our own efforts. True prayer does not put off on God the responsibility that we must take for our own lives.
