What we're about

Dear Seekers of the Heart -

Have you had a spiritual experience? Looking for a deeper understanding of who you are and your life’s purpose?

Eckankar offers answers. It is an ancient spiritual teaching and a modern-day religion that offers spiritual techniques and resources for an individual to discover truth through personal experience.

Spiritual experiences may include dreams, inner guidance, déjà vu, knowingness, coincidences, out-of- body adventures, or having a sense that you have lived before. Open yourself to more love, joy, and wisdom by exploring and understanding life from a spiritual perspective.

We are an open, friendly spiritual community for people of all faiths. Explore your deepest spiritual questions, and meet people of like mind and heart.

* A Special Purpose for This Life...

Odd as it may seem, you had a special reason for coming into this lifetime. It was to become a more godlike being, but most people do not realize this fact. They assume that birth is a fancy of destiny.

All the lives you have ever lived were for the polishing of Soul. Like it or not, you are now at a higher and more spiritual level than in any prior incarnation. So look at yourself. Do you like what you see? Keep in mind, whatever it is, for better or worse, it’s of your own making.
You are the sum of all your thoughts, feelings, and actions from this life and every lifetime in the past.
People, in general, think of karma as an unpleasant force and less often as having a beneficial side. Take for example Mozart, already composing music at age five.
The rule of karma determines factors like male or female body, eye-hand coordination, long- or short-term memory retention, and desires. In addition, our karmic package includes race, ancestry, family, friends, economic and social standing, and much more besides.
However, what comes of those conditions depends upon the exercise of our free will.
The Law of Cause and Effect, or the Law of Karma, is always in play your whole life. You must know how to live in harmony with its exacting terms. The experiences that derive from an adolescent or mature understanding of that law will, in time, bring you to an acceptance of divine love. That’s the reason you’re here.
[Excerpt from the book "Call of Soul" by Harold Klemp]

**Spiritual Exercise: The Open Heart

In this spiritual exercise, you practice keeping an open heart throughout everyday life. It’s very tough; I have to work at it all the time too.
No one technique will work for everyone, but there are ways to keep your attention on having an open heart. Start with something you can love, even a pet or a plant, and just love it a lot. As the love comes, let it pour through you.
The habit of love is catching; it builds, gains momentum, and becomes easier. But like a plant that needs watering and loving care every day, the habit of love takes constant attention.

Love won’t come through unless the heart is open. To work with an open heart is to love or care for something or someone more than you do for yourself. This is the first step to the divine love that we are looking for.

A Simple Spiritual Exercise to Try... To Listen for God
Needs a date and time

Needs a location

A Spiritual Exercise to Try... To Listen for God Try this simple spiritual exercise to help you hear and see the two aspects of God, the Light and Sound. Go somewhere quiet. Sit or lie down in a comfortable place. Put your attention on your Spiritual Eye, a point just above and behind your eyebrows. With eyes lightly shut, begin to sing a holy word or phrase, such as HU, God, Holy Spirit, or “Show me thy ways, O Lord.” But fill your heart with love before you approach the altar of God, because only the pure may come. Be patient. Do this exercise for several weeks, for a limit of twenty minutes each time. Sit, sing, and wait. God speaks to you only when you are able to listen. —From The Spiritual Exercises of ECK, by Harold Klemp To learn more about Harold Klemp ==> Link: https://eckankarblog.org/about-harold-klemp/ Experience HU—the Sound of Soul ==> Link: https://eckankarblog.org/sound-of-soul/
