• Spiritual Wisdom on Relationships: Discussion

    Boiling Over's Coffee Vault

    " Everything revolves around love. It always does. No matter how much we rush about in this world and how harried, ambitious, or sorrowful we become, the world stays together for some reason. The reason is God's love." — Harold Klemp, Spiritual Wisdom on Relationships (http://www.eckbooks.org/items/Spiritual_Wisdom_on_Relationships-75-0.html), pg. 1 Soul exists because God loves it. It's very simple. And when two Souls set up a bond of love, it is stronger and more enduring than eternity. It doesn't matter if the two Souls are human beings or if one of them happens to be a bird, a dog, a cat, or another animal form. Love holds the fabric of our lives together. What are some of the ways that the relationships in your life bring you spiritual insights, lessons and gifts? Come to share your thoughts and experiences on the spiritual nature of relationships. You'll also have an opportunity to try a simple spiritual exercise or two that may help you in your journey to self-mastery. Discussions are always free. Hope to see you there! A complimentary copy of the book, Spiritual Wisdom on Relationships, will be available at the Meetup. This special little book can help you find greater happiness in your relationships. In its pages you will discover: • the source of love • the secret of all relationships • wisdom on strengthening a marriage • how to love yourself • how to find solace when a loved one dies • your bond of love with all life--and with God • and much more.

    Join us to experience the Sound of Soul (https://eckankarblog.org/sound-of-soul/). Discover your inner guidance, healing for body, mind, and spirit, and a higher form of creativity by chanting this sacred sound. HU is a sacred sound and ancient mantra. It is an ancient name for God that has been sung for thousands of years in many lands for spiritual unfoldment. HU can uplift people of any religion, culture, or walk of life. You’re invited to chant HU for 20 minutes, contemplate for a few minutes, and then enjoy a spiritual conversation along with complimentary light refreshments. Here is a two-minute video on the HU Song: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e_afRdPjU-I Regardless of your beliefs or faith, you can sing HU to bring more Divine Love into your life. This simple contemplation can also bring you an experience with the Light and Sound of God, a direct communication from Spirit that can transform and uplift your consciousness. When you sing HU and sit in quiet contemplation, the Light may appear as brightness or colors on your inner visual screen. The Sound may be musical or the sounds of nature, such as the wind or the ocean. Singing HU can calm your mind, inspire a sense of peace, and bring you insights into your life. Many people feel that singing HU with a group helps them to set aside the chatter of the mind and more fully immerse themselves in the spiritual experiences that this contemplation can provide. Some feel a vortex of spiritual energy that allows them to emerge refreshed. Sponsored by Eckankar—The Path of Spiritual Freedom

  • Spiritual Wisdom on Prayer, Meditation and Contemplation: Discussion

    Boiling Over's Coffee Vault

    "Prayer. Meditation. Contemplation. What's at the heart of these spiritual practices? Each is a response to the call of Soul. Each represents an individual's desire to contact the source of all truth. Different paths to reach the same goal." —Harold Klemp, Spiritual Wisdom on Prayer, Meditation and Contemplation (https://www.eckbooks.org/items/Spiritual_Wisdom_on_Prayer_Meditation_and_Contemplation-683-0.html), pg. 1 The search for happiness is a driving force in most, if not all, people's lives. Yet we know that money and worldly success do not necessarily guarantee us happiness, inner peace, or joy. Indeed, many of us feel a deeper longing, like an inner force that pushes us to seek the source of all truth and connect with the highest and most sacred aspect of ourselves. How do we answer this Call of Soul? What spiritual practices can aid us in connecting more deeply with the Divine? Come to share your thoughts and experiences with the art of prayer, meditation or contemplation. You'll also have an opportunity to try a simple spiritual exercise or two that may help you in your journey to self-mastery. A complimentary copy of the book, Spiritual Wisdom on Prayer, Meditation and Contemplation will be available at the Meetup.

  • Spiritual Wisdom on Dreams: Discussion

    Boiling Over's Coffee Vault

    "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 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." — Harold Klemp, Spiritual Wisdom on Dreams (http://www.eckbooks.org/items/Spiritual_Wisdom_on_Dreams-1481-0.html), pg. 1 Throughout the ages, many people have studied their dreams in order to discover clues that might help them lead a happier life. Through our dreams, we can access insights into our relationships, guidance on daily choices, and even past-life recall. For instance, a dream might reveal the connection between what we are experiencing in our lives today and something that occurred two or three weeks ago, or even several lifetimes ago. Once we put two and two together, we can step into greater realms of self-responsibility and self-mastery in our lives. But what are dreams really? Harold Klemp, the spiritual leader of Eckankar, explains that a dream is simply a memory of an experience in the other worlds. Sometimes, though, our dream experiences may be so unlike our day-to-day reality that they make no immediate sense to us. Is there a way to reconcile the difference between one's inner and outer reality? And can understanding our dreams truly help us? If so, how can we learn to decipher the spiritual messages they contain? Come share your thoughts and experiences on the spiritual nature of dreams, and some of the ways that your dreams have brought you spiritual insights, lessons and gifts. You'll also have an opportunity to try a simple spiritual exercise or two that can help you begin to unlock the spiritual wisdom offered in your dreams. Discussions are always free. Love to have you join the sharing! A complimentary copy of the book, Spiritual Wisdom on Dreams, will be available at the discussion. This special little book can help you uncover the deeper meaning of your dreams. In its pages you will discover: • how to remember and interpret your dreams • how dreams bring freedom and love • practical benefits of dreams • spiritual guides in dreams • researching past lives via dreams • prophetic dreams • and much more.

  • Inner Guidance: Spiritual Discussion

    Boiling Over's Coffee Vault

    "Spirit is always with us, always guiding, always protecting, always attempting to bring joy and make our life better, but that doesn't mean that we are always aware and listening." —Harold Klemp, How to Find God (http://www.eckbooks.org/items/How_to_Find_God-6-0.html), p. 277-8 Whether we are aware of it or not, inner guidance is available to each and every one of us, every moment of our lives, to help us move toward a happier, more loving existence. Perhaps a dream will provide you with the answer you are seeking, or the words of a song on the radio will convey a special message, meant just for you. You might even hear a gentle voice within, letting you know what step to take next in your life. However it comes, this inner guidance will always steer you toward greater expressions of Divine Love in your life. So, how can we learn to open ourselves to Divine Spirit in order to benefit from this Inner Guidance? If we all have access to it, how can we learn to first recognize and then trust it? Come share your insights and experiences, and try a spiritual exercise or two to help you open your heart to the whisperings of Divine Spirit. A complimentary copy of the book, ECK Wisdom on Inner Guidance (http://www.eckbooks.org/items/ECK_Wisdom_on_Inner_Guidance-1770-0.html), by Harold Klemp, the spiritual leader of Eckankar, is available to all who attend. This wonderful and informative little book will also serve as a touchstone, to guide and inform the discussion. * * * * * Graphic by Claude Gruffy Sponsored by Eckankar - The Path of Spiritual Freedom

  • Spiritual Wisdom on Solving Problems: Discussion

    Boiling Over's Coffee Vault

    "A solution is hidden in the folds of every reverse. No matter what is thrown into our face, there is a way to roll with the punch. People with a high state of consciousness are not frozen into inaction by terror brought about through disasters. They immediately make a plan to turn the negative energy to advantage. At this level of creative imagination, Soul is in a condition of survival. The lesson of the worlds of matter is to develop Soul's ability to ride the crests of life." —Harold Klemp, ECK Wisdom on Solving Problems (http://www.eckbooks.org/items/ECK_Wisdom_on_Solving_Problems-1937-0.html), p.42-43 Sometimes all it takes is a shift in the way we are approaching a problem, to turn a corner and discover the deeper opportunity that the problem holds for us. The change of perspective can bring a welcome change of consciousness. We can shift from being apparent victims of circumstances beyond our control, to being active problem solvers on the road to true spiritual freedom. What spiritual lessons and benefits have problems brought to you in your life? What spiritual tools have helped you discover creative solutions to your problems? Come bring your stories and your questions to a wide-ranging discussion. You'll also have a chance to try a short spiritual exercise called a HU Song (http://www.eckankar.org/hu.html) that can help you find the root cause of a problem and open yourself to the flow of Divine Spirit, bringing a sense of harmony, peace, and sometimes realizations and breakthroughs. There is never a charge to join one of our discussions. Just come and enjoy! A complimentary copy of the book, ECK Wisdom on Solving Problems, will be available at the Meetup.
