“The golden vessel is always God-Realization. I can try to keep your vision there. But often without knowing it, one’s limitations tell him a silver cup is more serviceable or iron doesn’t break as easily. If an iron cup is what you want, an iron cup is what you’ll have. But when someone indicates he would like the golden cup, I say, Bless you! It makes my work so much easier.
The individual’s state of consciousness chooses which of the four cups he will have. To impose a change in one’s state of consciousness would cheat him of experiences he needs to get to the next level.”
—Harold Klemp, Cloak of Consciousness, Mahanta Transcripts, Book 5, pg. 186
“These spiritual exercises link you with the guidance of the Holy Spirit [the ECK], which is seen as Light and heard as Sound. The inner Sound is the Voice of God calling us home. The inner Light is a beacon to light our way. All the Spiritual Exercises of ECK are built on these two divine aspects of the Holy Spirit.
Learning spiritual consciousness is learning how to live in this world no matter what comes. We learn through these spiritual exercises how to live life graciously, from childhood to old age. We learn how to live life in the best way possible.
The Spiritual Exercises of ECK give us confidence in ourselves. We learn that we are Soul, we are eternal. Then we know with certainty that we live forever, that death cannot destroy us.”
—Harold Klemp,The Spiritual Exercises of ECK (Your doorway to Wisdom, Freedom, and Love), pg 3
