“Study of the ECK discourses [ECKANKAR, The Path of Spiritual Freedom] can bring us insight into who and what we were in a previous life. This can lead to a better understanding of who we are today and why certain things are happening to us.”
—Harold Klemp, The Drumbeat of Time, Mahanta Transcripts, Book 10, Pg. 197
“Yet each lifetime, even a supposed failure, gives a fuller understanding about your spiritual nature. You learn about yourself as a spiritual being.
Soul is immortal. It has no beginning or end. It (you) exists because of God’s love for It, which is the whole philosophy of ECKANKAR in a nutshell. Our mistakes in this and past lifetimes are the polishings of a precious gem in the rough.”
—Harold Klemp, Past Lives, Dreams, and Soul Travel, Pg. 23
“You are now the most complete spiritual being you have ever been. Sometimes you may look at yourself and say, ‘I haven’t come very far, have I?’ But you are the best that you’ve ever been, and there’s still a long way to go.
By the mere fact of being in ECK today you can break this cycle, the paradox or riddle of how do I love myself more to love God more? You can’t do one without the other. Most people don’t break through this riddle for lifetimes. It takes them in a circle, which becomes a wheel. We call it the wheel of reincarnation, the many lives we spend trying to get on top of things. ”
—Harold Klemp, What is Spiritual Freedom, Mahanta Transcripts, Book 11, Pg. 182
