Unmasking…

beneath the mountain of God.

I discard my fears and worries

knowing with whom I trod.

I have been here before…

other mountains

other shores.

I know that I have lessons to learn

before I go to my last rest.

All that is required of me, now,

Is to unmask and do my best. 

I stand at the edge of a mighty forest

beneath the mountain of God.

I discard my fears and worries

knowing with whom I trod.

Reminder ~ Harold Klemp ~ The Spiritual Exercises of ECK

97557b7a-b99c-4ca1-a476-cc4e30dd999cReminder

If you wish to Soul Travel while you are asleep, remind yourself of this several times during the day. For example, say to yourself, “Tonight I will Soul Travel in my dream.”

Your mind will accept ideas that are repeated more readily than ideas that are not repeated.

Visualize the kind of dream you want to have as though it were already happening. After you have pictured the dream, picture its results. Try playing a movie scene in your mind of how you will feel when you have the advice or help you seek from the Dream Master.

Now is the time…

34c2f480-42ee-4828-a4f8-0ae7281257c3

Now is the time

To sing your praise.

Now is the time

to feel the Creator’s gaze.

A soft wind caresses the trees.

Soul is moved deeply by the gentle breeze.

Now is the time

to give praise and rejoice.

Now is the time

to give service with one voice. 

Now is the time

for the Ancient of Days.

To be heard clearly and to  follow Its ways.

Oh yes, I shall dream of thee again…

dsc00021His soft voice came from behind lips that smiled.

His eyes danced with mine, over centuries and miles.

The deep cedar wood smell of him, awakened memories,

Of many moments in a lifetime and many lifetimes in a moment.

Then darn, I woke up to the sound of the phone.

He was here.

He was real.

But, the phone called me away from his arms.

It called me away from the knowing of his charms.

I scrubbed the floor.

I made the bed.

“I shall dream of you again”

rang through my head.

That night when I returned form the city –

there was the smell of him again,

I could hear his laughter.

I cried in delight when I saw

a single red rose on my pillow.

Often, the Sunlight of the Spirit caresses Soul in the dream state to prepare it for the loving moments on their way.  And, just as often, the loving moments remembered.

Listening

Listening was not always a pleasure.

I did not want to hear about the war. 

I did not want to know about the violence…

neither  home nor abroad.

Now, as an adult – an aging crone who rocks –

I spend my day listening to the sound. 

It brightens my pathway.

It gives me great joy.

I combine It  with the light

There is love without alloy.

What now?

What now?

I would like to be at perfect peace….

perhaps for just a moment.

What now?

I have some chores to do, appointments to keep,

I do not have time to put healing first.

What now?

I am to surrender?

Right now?

I am to get out of Soul’s way

and breathe in the Sunlight of the Spirit?

Oh, this feels good.

This feels calm and right.

Oh, I do not know why I fought it.

Thank you, Creator,  for helping me

To sit still and wait for the “What now?

Imaginative Techniques ~ Harold Klemp ~ The Spiritual Exercises of ECK

 

Imaginative Techniques

Harold Klemp eckankar.org
Harold Klemp eckankar.org

Soul Travel occurs in two ways. One form is experienced as the apparent movement of the Soul body through the planes of time and space. It is not really movement, because Soul already exists on all planes. What seems to be movement, or travel, is simply Soul coming into agreement with fixed states and conditions that already exist in the lower worlds.

This explains the imaginative technique for Soul Travel. You imagine a scene, and you are there in the Soul body. It may feel as though you are moving along very quickly, and this is why it is perceived as travel. Actually, it is the process of changing the setting around you.

To practice this, you can take a scene from your memories and control the actions in it. For example, imagine the sea beating against a beach. Now try to see the sea as being as still as lake water. Try it on things you know by stilling or stopping actions.

You may experience a rushing sound, like wind in a tunnel, and the sensation of moving incredibly fast.

The other form of Soul Travel is the expansion of consciousness. This is closer to the state of true personal revelation or enlightenment that we are looking for in ECK.
