Contentment



“So, if you want ot lift yourself to a higher state of consciousness—so that the political issues, the family issues, the social issues of the day do not throw you out of balance, so that you can find a happier, more contented life while you’re living here—sing HU, the most beautiful prayer.”

—Harold Klemp, The Slow Burning Love of God, Mahanta Transcripts, Book 13, Pg. 199



“There are counterbalances to the five passions [Lust, Anger, Greed, Vanity, and Attachment], such as humility and contentment, and others [The Five ECK Virtues: Discrimination, Forgiveness and Tolerance, Contentment, Humility, and Detachment]. We find this balance by looking to detachment. Detachment doesn’t mean a lack of emotional interest in life. It means that we are willing to take life as we find it, with the highs and lows. Then yesterday becomes no more than yesterday, and we can look through the eyes of the child and say, What is here for me today?”

—Harold Klemp, How to Find God, Mahanta Transcripts, Book 2, Pg. 32



“In The Shariyat-Ki-Sugmad, Book Two, Lai Tsi, the Chinese ECK Master [ECKANKAR, The Path of Spiritual Freedom], speaks about what people expect in this world. He says, ‘Man seeks too much the gold and silver of the world when he should be seeking the Window of Heaven through which, when opened, all the treasures that he believed were possible will now come pouring to him.’

He lists the treasures of Soul, and he counts among them peace, contentment, and happiness which come with the opening of the Window of Heaven.”
