“ECK [ECKANKAR, The Path of Spiritual Freedom] is the path of love, and that includes learning to have compassion and understanding when other people run into karma that they cannot understand or handle. The ECKist is one who offers comfort, a kind word, and perhaps a shoulder to cry on. But when a person’s loss is so deep that words won’t help, listening sometimes does more good than talking. This is all part of the path of ECK.”
—Harold Klemp, Unlocking the Puzzle Box, Mahanta Transcripts, Book 6, Pg. 96
“Instead of talking about everything we know, sometimes it pays to just listen. Listen to the people around you. Because, after all, if someone’s telling you something that is spiritual and positive, this is from the Voice of God.”
—Harold Klemp, The Secret of Love, Mahanta Transcripts, Book 14, Pg. 81
“Understand how the ECK [Divine Spirit] works. If it gives you some knowledge on how to sidestep a problem and you listen, then It will give you still another insight on how to run your life even better. On the other hand, if you get lazy, if you say, It couldn’t have meant that, and you don’t act on it, the ECK—the Mahanta—will try again.
It will warn you twice, three times, six times. But when you get out of the habit of listening, the voice of the Inner Master becomes weaker and weaker. It’s not because he’s talking quieter, but because you have turned down the volume on the inner instrument of Soul. Your mind has strayed, and you’re not listening to what Spirit is saying—so the resource dries up.”
—Harold Klemp, The Golden Heart, Mahanta Transcripts, Book 4, Pg. 153
