Dear Seekers of the Heart -
We live in a time of unprecedented interest in spirituality. Spiritual experiences are no longer the exclusive domain of religious leaders, saints, and mystics. They are a part of everyday living for millions of people. And these people have questions: Are their experiences real? What do they mean? How can a person have more experiences of the Divine?
• How can I awaken spiritually to attain greater spiritual freedom...to explore the highest realms of consciousness?
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...making God an everyday reality.

* 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.
