How Does Love Give Purpose to Our Lives?
"God's love is a wonderful thing. It shows up in people we love, in the animals, birds, and other pets we have that
we love. It shows up in all different ways in what we love. In case you haven't discovered it, the whole purpose in
living, the whole purpose of God's plan, is so each of us—you and you and you—learn how to love. That's it.
"And love begins where? It begins with those who are near and dear to us. If we can't love them, how are we ever going to love God? And before you can love those who are near and dear to you, you've got to learn to love yourself."
—Harold Klemp, How to Survive Spiritually in Our Times,
How Dreams Bring Us Closer to God
"Why do we dream? Why is it important to dream? Because dreaming comes from the creative imagination, which is God’s gift to you and to me. It is the nature of immortal Soul to dream. This is why your dreams, both in everyday life
and while asleep, are so important.
"Through your ability to dream, you often have experiences in the other worlds where you act as an observer. But as
you move farther along in ECK, you become the participant in your dreams. You become the actor.
"You begin to see goals, spiritual goals which may be as valid as finding a home for your family. You want a place
where they can be happy, a haven away from the fast pace of today’s society. You create a warm place where friends are welcome.
"It’s a place where you can go, a home, a spiritual dream. Because as we plan our homes, whether it’s a rented home
or one we buy, we’re just thinking of a higher home. It’s the home of Soul. The place where Soul has come from, from
the heart of God in the Ocean of Love and Mercy.
"Dream. Dream your way home. Dream your way back to God. Use your creative imagination, because that’s
the only way you can return to the source of all life."
—Harold Klemp, The Dream Master, pp. 219-20
Taking the Next Step Spiritually
"The final destination for Soul is not to become a perfected being in the absolute sense. In ECK we know that the
process of perfection goes on and on. You become the best that you can be in your life today, thereby laying the groundwork
for tomorrow. This is what the path of ECK shows you.
"This is not something that can be accomplished through mental exercises or exertion of willpower. It comes through
the discipline of divine love. By opening our heart to Divine
Spirit, which is the ECK, we allow ourself to become an instrument for It and Its ways."
—Harold Klemp, Unlocking the Puzzle Box, p. 247
When God Calls, Are You Listening?
"Those who are familiar with the ways of ECK know that It does not always speak to us in a lofty manner. It often brings us insights through something more down to earth, like a pet. Because of this, we may have a harder time figuring out the
spiritual lesson behind the experience.
"In your everyday life, if there is an incident that is out of the ordinary, that upsets you greatly, disturbs you, or
makes you unusually happy, you can be sure that behind the experience is a lesson the Mahanta is trying to bring
across to you. The Mahanta is trying to give you some revelation about yourself; otherwise that experience would not have happened to you.
"When something like this occurs, try to see beyond the curtain that hides the meaning of what is going on. The
Master is trying to bring you a truth, to give you a little bit more knowledge of your
spiritual personality. He’s trying to show you who and what you are."
—Harold Klemp, The Eternal Dreamer, p. 132
The ECK Light and Sound services celebrate
Soul's connection with Holy Spirit, also known as ECK. Holy
Spirit, or God's Voice, constantly speaks to each of us via the
Light and Sound, the twin pillars of God in expression.
During the service, we listen to a short
reading from the ECK writings related to the day's topic and
then sing HU (pronounced "hue") with love. The HU, a sacred
love song to God, is followed by a short contemplation. After
that, we listen to a brief story related to the day's subject
progressing to an open discussion on the spiritual principles.
If you want to learn how to open your heart to
divine love and recognize God's voice when It speaks through
Its twin aspects, the Light and Sound, or share your own
experiences with Holy Spirit, please join us. You can explore
the wonders of HU, discover how singing HU with love can expand
your awareness, bring peace and calmness during times of stress
or grief, or help heal a broken heart.
Harold Klemp, as quoted from above, is the
Spiritual Leader of Eckankar, the Mahanta, the Living ECK
Master. He has the special ability to act as both an inner
and outer spiritual guide and teaches anyone who asks. He is
given respect, but is not worshipped.
