When you do the Spiritual Exercises of ECK, fill yourself with love and goodwill. Do one exercise every day. Spend about twenty minutes on it. This builds your spiritual stamina gently over time. Regular daily practice is the key to success. This exercise is from book The Spiritual Exercises of ECK. Are you looking for the personal experience of God—every day?
Each of us is connected to God through Divine Spirit (the ECK), which can be heard as Sound and seen as Light. Eckankar offers a spiritual toolkit to help you experience the Light and Sound of God. The Light and Sound are the twin aspects of the Holy Spirit, the divine life current that flows from God. This current, known as the ECK, sustains all life.
Sri Harold Klemp,The Slow Burning Love of God
The Light and Sound of God together are the Voice of God. In scriptures we know It as the Word or Logos. In other words, it's God speaking from beyond creation to Its creation.
Light and Sound have long been a part of religious rituals throughout the world. Chants and hymns are among the most well-known examples of sound in the Christian tradition. The singing of cantors plays an important role in Judaism. Om, sung in some Eastern religions, is often used in meditation.
Eckankar teaches how to recognize the Light of God. Sometimes It comes as an inner scene or vision. It can be a flash of blue or white light. It appears in many ways.
The Sound of God was the rushing wind that visited the disciples during Pentecost. Some hear It inwardly. It can be heard as the sound of rushing water; the single note of a flute; the music of violins, woodwinds, or bagpipes; or even the buzzing of bees.
Of all religions on earth today, Eckankar offers the most direct teachings on the Light and Sound of God.
Harold Klemp,The Art of Spiritual Dreaming
Dreams touch every level of our life. They may let us glimpse the future, or give suggestions for healing, or share insights into our relationships. Above all, they can and will steer us more directly toward God.
When you do the Spiritual Exercises of ECK, fill yourself with love and goodwill. Do one exercise every day. Spend about twenty minutes on it. This builds your spiritual stamina gently over time. Regular daily practice is the key to success. This exercise is from my book The Spiritual Exercises of ECK.
There are many ECK spiritual exercises. Each one opens you a little bit more to the Sound and Light of God.
This spiritual exercise is for three different groups of people:
those who don't dream but want to
those who dream but want to Soul Travel, and
those who want to go beyond dreams and Soul Travel to the state of direct knowingness.
The exercise is so simple that it may seem as if I'm belittling your intelligence, but I'm not. Truth is always simple.
Just before you go to sleep, sit quietly on your bed. Close your eyes. Chant HU (pronounced hue) very softly, or if someone is in the room with you, chant it silently to yourself. HU is a special word, the ancient name for God. You could call it the manifested Word or the Sound; it has a power of its own.
