“If you want truth, you must step back. Learn to see more than other people do. you do this by putting your attention on God. In ECK [ECKANKAR, The Path of Spiritual Freedom], we do it through the spiritual exercises. In other religions people do it through meditation or prayer.
Whatever you can do to create a closer link with God, do it. It’s very important. You’re here, as well as your neighbor, to learn something—or you wouldn’t be here.”
—Harold Klemp, How to Survive Spiritually in Our Times, Mahanta Transcripts, Book 16, Pg. 199
“By keeping his attention on the ECK [Divine Spirit], the ECKist is uplifted and spiritualized, so that his interactions with his family, friends, and neighbors ideally are of the highest nature. I say ‘ideally,’ but it’s not always practically so, for the road to God-Realization is long and hard. We are constantly being tested to see if, when we face truth, we are found worthy of receiving it.”
—Harold Klemp, Unlocking the Puzzle Box, Mahanta Transcripts, Book 6, Pg. 185
“If you have a sincere desire to move forward in the worlds of God, continue to do the Spiritual Exercises of ECK, faithfully and with love. Put your attention on the SUGMAD [God], the ECK, or the Mahanta in whatever way is suitable and comfortable for you. Walk in the Light and Sound of God; be a vehicle for ECK wherever you go. As you work with It, the Holy Spirit—the ECK—will work with you.”
—Harold Klemp, The Golden Heart, Mahanta Transcripts, Book 4, Pg. 75
