Topic:THREE THINGS NEEDED FOR SPIRITUAL FREEDOM
Book:The Road to Spiritual Freedom
Author:Harold Klemp
Reading:

The Road to Spiritual Freedom Chp9 pp195-196. By Sri Harold Klemp. The Mahanta, The Living ECK Master.Spiritual Leader of Eckankar

There are three things needed for spiritual freedom. The first is the Living ECK Master. Why? Because he can show the individual soul the way to the Light of God and open his ears to the heavenly music. The first step is the Living ECK Master.

The second is the heavenly music, the Voice of God, the ECK.

Then Jivan Mukti - spiritual liberation in this lifetime. This comes at the Fifth Initiation. The Fifth Initiation comes after  Self-Realization, which is the experience of the ECKshar. The experience comes first. When a person truly has it, it's an ecstasy of Soul. 

Those of you among the initiates of ECK who've had the true experience of Self-Realization have known an ecstasy such as no other. Your ears have been opened to the music of God and your eyes to the Light of God. You see the Blue Light, the Light of the Mahanta, in other people. Then comes spiritual liberation, or spiritual freedom.

A Modern Prophet Answers your Key Questions About Life.Chp7 pp 147-148.By Sri Harold Klemp. The Mahanta, The living ECK Master.Spiritual Leader of Eckankar

Most important in the spiritual works of ECK is the knowledge that a solution to every problem lies within us.

The human consciousness can act as a quicksand, always pulling us down relentlessly. The spiritual exercises are the linkup to Divine Spirit. They are a rope we can use to pull ourselves free from this sort of despondency.

What is our goal? Manifesting material things is not the goal of saints, although most start out trying to accomplish this as a first step. The biblical saying is true in that we seek first the Kingdom of God and all things shall be added to us.

A Modern Prophet Answers Your Key Questions About Life Chp3 p 45. By Sri Harold Klem, The Mahanta, The living ECK Master.Spiritual Leader of Eckankar

Too many on the spiritual path have the misconception that the ECK, the Holy Spirit, will do all good things for us if we just have faith, and also give a token nod to prayer or our daily spiritual exercises.

But on the surface, such people are actually passive and introverted individuals who never connect the need for material self-sufficiency with the path of ECK.

The individual is responsible for carrying his own weight in society in this lifetime. Earth is a training ground to learn the self-disciplines of Soul, which then lead It to a state of grace known as God-Realisation.
Some will overreact to that and become full-fledged materialists. But there are lessons in that too.

Journey of Soul Chp4 pp 43-44. By Sri Harold Klemp. The Mahanta, The living Eck Master.Spiritual Leader of ECKANKAR

As we move along, we have to recognise that once we set a goal and say, ‘This is where I want to be and when I want to be there,’ whether it’s God-Realisation or Self-Realisation, then all the things that happen in between are life’s lessons. Sometimes we know exactly where we are going, but it just may take a little longer than we planned, and we can react in several ways. We can get upset – and this is usually how we do it for the first ten thousand or twenty thousand lives. But all of a sudden it just sinks in that this is what we learned from that experience, and finally we realise it doesn’t pay to get upset anymore. We begin to know that we can take it easy, we can make our plans, and go on. Then if something comes up, we know it’s there as a lesson, there for a reason, and it’s a way for us to grow.

Journey of Soul Chp9 pp107-108. By Sri Harold Klemp. The Mahanta, The living ECK Master.Spiritual Leader of Eckankar

We are in this world but not of this world. We are detached from this world but this does not mean that we say good bye to our emotions and our mind or anything else. We have the Spiritual Exercises of ECK, and these are exercises for the spiritual body.
The mental body needs exercise, too, so if we want a job promotion or if the mind needs something for self-satisfaction or growth, it’s all right to take a course at a college. Or it can be anything that you enjoy, such as literature or some of the crafts. The emotional body also needs exercise. Sometimes if the ECK love is flowing through so strongly that you want a good cry, it’s ok. Go off and have yourself a good cry, because it exercises the emotional body; and there’s nothing wrong with this.

In my earlier days on the path of ECK, for a while everything was ECKANKAR. I gave up all my interests but this is not necessary. We don’t have to be the way the medieval monks were told to be, or go live in a sanctuary of a monastery. We can live life, we can go out in the mainstream of life and enjoy the fellowship of other ECKISTS and people who are not in ECKANKAR.

A Modern Prophet Answers Your Key Questions About Life Chp3 p 47. By Sri Harold Klemp. The Mahanta, The living ECK Master.Spiritual Leader of Eckankar

You are living the spiritual life when you conduct yourself and your business in the name of Divine Spirit. Each person who does this touches many Souls during the course of the business day. Although he may not say one word openly to his customers, nevertheless the Spirit of God touches all whom he meets, in some manner or another.

The life is for Soul to get the experiences It needs to open Its consciousness so that the Holy Spirit can flow through It as a vehicle. A person lives the spiritual life when all his acts and deeds are done in the name of Divine Spirit.

Book:Journey of Soul Mahanta Transcripts, Book 1

Reading:

Journey of Soul Chp 10 p123. By Sri Harold Klemp. The Mahanta, The Living ECK Master.Spiritual Leader of Eckankar

If someone wonders whether ECK is real, there is no one – myself included – who can say, ‘Yes, ECK is real.’ Each person has to find it out for himself. No amount of talking is going to let another person realise this truth and find the uplifting and purifying action of Spirit upon Soul.

When this purifying of Soul begins, we may find a couple of things happening in our outer life. Things go a little bit on the fast side, and for a while we really have to step along. Spirit will open up new avenues in our life. And if we go along with them, things will go smoothly. Every so often someone will say to me, ‘I am just about ready for an initiation in ECK, and I am afraid that there are going to be hard times.’ There don’t have to be hard times. Things will straighten out as quickly as we can pick up the new direction that Divine Spirit is giving us. It may be in the matter of health.

Topic:HOW TO FIND GOD
Book:How to Find God Mahanta Transcripts, Book 2
Author:Harold Klemp
Reading:

How to Find God.Chp22. pp.347-348. By Sri Harold Klemp. The Mahanta, The living ECK Master Spiritual Leader of Eckankar.

How do you find God? What makes you yearn for God?
It’s an indefinable something; and I can only say that often it helps if you have pain, suffering and loneliness. When life drives you against the wall and you have nowhere else to go, you finally give up trust and confidence in yourself and in your material possessions. And when you can give up attachment and reliance upon anything in the outer world, only then do you have a chance to see the door open for the inner truth of God. Only then can you find the way to spiritual freedom.
 
The way to spiritual freedom is always through the Spiritual Exercises of ECK. You may have tried prayer, as I did for years. Eventually you will outgrow certain kinds of prayer, such as asking God to change the will of another person to suit your own. As you go further on the spiritual path, you understand that using prayer to change another person’s mind is black magic.

Topic:OUR RESPONSIBILITIES AND SPIRITUAL UNFOLDMENT
Book:Journey of Soul Mahanta Transcripts, Book 1
Author:Harold Klemp
Reading:

Journey of Soul Chp4 p48. By Sri Harold Klemp. The Mahanta, The Living ECK Master.Spiritual Leader of Eckankar

When we come into this world and take on responsibilities, this is where we find our spiritual unfoldment. If we think we’ll find it by giving up our responsibilities, that is not the way. There’s no quick way. Maybe you don’t get along with your wife, so you decide it’s time to go and join a religious order. You leave thinking you’ve solved that problem and its all taken care of, you’ve given your life to God, and may everything else be taken care of. This is shirking our responsibility; this isn’t the way.

The Road to Spiritual Freedom Chp4 p70 - 71. By Sri Harold Klemp. The Mahanta, The Living ECK Master.Spiritual Leader of Eckankar
 
"One day, Nancy's mom asked her, "Am I living the life of ECK correctly? I'm so happy. I just enjoy life."

Nancy, the very  rational one, thought about it for some time. Based on her observation of so many people who seem to be unhappy, she said, "What better goal in life could one have than happiness?"

She said her mother knew how to make the most of life.

This is how it should be. Life is a precious gift. It's like the rain that falls on the good and on the evil alike. The gift of life, human life, is given to the good and evil. Making the most of life shows appreciation for the gift.     The language of love.
….The language of love is the love God has for us and that we have for each other. We try to show this to those we love in some small way that gives this love back to God"

Topic:OUR LACK OF AWARENESS OF THE BASIC LAWS OF LIFE
Book:The Secret Teachings Mahanta Transcripts, Book 3
Author:Harold Klemp
Reading:

The secret Teachings Chp5.pp54-55 By Sri Harold Klemp. The Mahanta, The living ECK Master.Spiritual Leader of Eckankar

"...You do whatever you feel you have to do to survive. But somewhere along the way life requires full payment for everything you extract from it. Whatever we do is balanced out with the law of life. This is not at all bad; as we go through these different phases, we learn what works and what doesn’t. 

There is a cartoon that illustrates how our lack of awareness of a basic law can complicate a very simple thing. 

In the cartoon, you’ll see two men in a four-wheeled cart. One of the men is in front, working up a lot of sweat as he tries to pull the cart along. The other guy is in back, working just as hard to push it. The cart that they are pushing and pulling has four square wheels. Oddly enough, the cart is loaded with four more wheels, only these are round. They had the right wheels, but they were in the wrong place.
That cartoon is an example of the intellectual man groping around in the spiritual worlds. He has absolutely no understanding of the laws, so what does he do? He makes fun of something he’s unable to understand because it’s beyond his sight and hearing.  ..."
