A Thrilling Journey to the Glories of God

Autobiography of a Modern Prophet, an award-winning book by Sri Harold Klemp, spiritual leader of Eckankar, has now been published as a downloadable audiobook. This is the riveting account of Sri Harold’s personal journey to the heart of God. His story proves that the road to spiritual greatness is right here, under our own feet, no matter where we stand today.

A story of spiritual survival for all times.

The book, aptly narrated by Rich Miller, helps readers experience Sri Harold’s significant life events, breakthroughs, and spiritual wisdom.

Barbara B. writes in Google Play, “This is possibly one of the most thrilling spiritual books I’ve ever read. It’s a very immersive journey that takes a farm boy from Wisconsin to the heights of spiritual consciousness. It stirred my own dreams of wanting to become a higher spiritual being and transcend challenges. It takes you way beyond conventional thinking about how someone can reach God.

“The narration was really excellent. The words are like portals that can launch you into new worlds of awareness and self-confidence. It’s also a great value, with thirteen hours of listening. This audiobook is truly one of a kind.”

Tammy A. writes, “This book is one of my favorites! Truth rings from every page and touches my heart in a way no other book has. I love the written word; however, listening to this book took me to another level entirely!

“It is the perfect companion, and I hear something different every time. Highly recommended.”

An ECKist wrote, “When I told Alexa [Amazon’s virtual assistant device], ‘Read Autobiography of a Modern Prophet’ (using an Amazon tablet with a screen), it showed the cover of the book, said it was available from Audible, and gave info about an Audible trial period and subscription. Then an excerpt of the narrator reading the contents and part of the introduction.”

How cool is that?

The downloadable audiobook is available from Barnes & Noble/Nook, Amazon, Audible (with or without a subscription), Apple/iTunes, Audiobooks, Google Play, Kobo, Walmart, Chirp, and other sites. Search for it wherever digital audiobooks are sold.


What Is the Inner and Outer Master?

Inner Master Feature

By Sri Harold Klemp

In ECK, there is the principle of the Inner and Outer Master.  The Outer Master is myself as the spiritual leader of Eckankar.  But there is also an inner part, which we call the Inner Master, who gives spiritual instruction to each person as he or she needs it.

In other words, each person is unique in how they look at life, because each person’s experiences have been totally unique.  Even twins are unique in that there is a different being operating through each physical body.

 

As the Inner Master I am able to reach and teach many people at once.  More importantly, I am able to talk to each person according to his spiritual needs.  This is a part of the spiritual teaching of Eckankar which might differ from what many people are used to in their previous religion.

Often the teaching begins in the dream state.  Once you become interested in Eckankar, you find that your dream state begins to change.   At first you don’t know whether it’s a change for the better or for the worse because you are not familiar with what is happening.

Your dreams are changing because, at some level, you have given your consent to work with the Inner Master, also called the Mahanta.  By studying ECK, being interested in ECK, and indeed even coming to the ECK seminar, you have said, “I would like to know a little bit about ECK.”

Meeting the Light Giver

Here is a spiritual exercise to begin having your own experiences with the Mahanta’s guidance.

The Light Giver

Find a quiet place and seat yourself comfortably. Relax with a couple of deep breaths and shut your eyes.

Begin by chanting HU aloud as long as you like, maybe five minutes or so, and then continue chanting silently, or as a whisper. This will take a natural rhythm.

Gently consider, what are the most desired qualities you would look for in a spiritual master? Contemplate this from your heart.

Then invite the Mahanta, the Inner Master, to show you in some way how the seeds of these very qualities are coming to life within you. Otherwise, how could you want or recognize them in a spiritual guide?

You may hear an inner sound or see an inner light as you continue to chant the HU. Or you may feel a reassuring presence or warmth in your heart area.

*          *          *

As the Light Giver, the Mahanta will illuminate new textures and expressions of God’s unconditional love in your day and even in your dreams. These moments may come to you in such natural design you might overlook their presence.

Something in your heart will then say, “Look again.”
