“The Living ECK Master [ECKANKAR, The Path of Spiritual Freedom] can show the way through examples and spiritual exercises to help open the consciousness. But if the individual truly wants the enlightenment which leads him closer home to God, it is up to him to accept the trust which has been given to him and walk the path himself.”
—Harold Klemp, Unlocking the Puzzle Box, Mahanta Transcripts, Book 6, Pg. 147
“The next step in spiritual unfoldment is accepting divine love, because it washes away all limitations like guilt and remorse. It must be done. When the individual’s consciousness has expanded after enough day-to-day experience, then his Spiritual Eye opens. Pure love and forgiveness will flood his heart. But he must allow it. That’s the nature of free will.”
—Harold Klemp, The Living Word, Book 3, Pg. 276
“Until one finds the way to love, to love truly, he will never understand the Spirit of ECK [Divine Spirit]—or better, can accept It—he will have difficulty with Soul Travel, with the spiritual exercises, and also with his dream experiences.
The Mahanta, the Living ECK Master uses many different methods to try to get through the individual’s barriers or resistance. One spiritual exercise or another is tried, and then another, to approach the individual’s state of consciousness from a number of different ways.”
—Harold Klemp, The Golden Heart, Mahanta Transcripts, Book 4, Pg. 241
