Discrimination



“Viveka is the first step in ECKANKAR [ECKANKAR, The Path of Spiritual Freedom]; right discrimination; being able to discriminate between what will be good for spiritual advancement or would be wasting time; the opposite of kama, lust.”

—Harold Klemp, A Cosmic Sea of Words, The ECKANKAR Lexicon, Pg. 87



“Another ECK quality that we develop is discrimination. And as you grow in discrimination, you learn that you can only accept a certain amount of something. Then you have to step back and say, ‘I’ll learn to do things another way.’ You fall back on your creativity—the creativity of Soul.”

—Harold Klemp, The Secret of Love, Mahanta Transcripts, Book 14, Pg. 190



“God speaks through dreams, intuition, and sometimes the voices of other people who have more experience than we do. But unless we have opened our heart through singing HU [an ancient name for God pronounced like the word ‘hue’], we won’t have the discrimination to know wisdom when we hear it.”

—Harold Klemp, The Drumbeat of Time, Mahanta Transcripts, Book 10, Chap. 13
