as the journey of soul continues, for those who have heard the call of soul, preparations for their journey back to God has already been put in place even before their present lifetime. and once the student of life is ready to make that journey, the master appears.
no force in the universe can stop this meeting between the seeker and the master. the real spiritual education takes place in the inner worlds where soul can more easily absorb truth without the encumbrances of the mind and its passions. all the time spent in the different religions, time spent in reading tons of books on truth, time spent in praying all through the night and fasting and beseeching on God to reveal its truth to you has been leading up to this one moment. that is the moment when the seeker stands face to face with the master.

I joined Eckankar even though there is NO COMPULSION, NO CAJOLING, NO GIMMICKERY whatsoever to CONVERT ANYONE. I discovered it here on nairaland and that particular thread is my signature.

For me, it was a voice that had accompanied me from childhood. A certain master had been my guide even without me knowing it(I created a thread about some of these Guides here: https://www.nairaland.com/2588138/encounters-spiritual-travellers). I once had a dream encounter with that Master and I thought he was Jesus Christ. My preparation started (as I can remember) when the voice directed me to New Creation Bible Church Gwagwalada(Abuja) on my first day in that town as 14yr SS1 student. The voice gave me suggestions when I tune into it, although I used to think it was just superficial and nothing to take serious. At the concluding part of the 'search game' it lead me to Pastor Chris's (Christ Embassy) teachings...it referred to a church as a "Pot"...it said "use this pot when frying turkey" ( can you imagine the message being passed? smiley) Till today, I wish most of my word-of-God-hungry friends at Christ Embassy will discover the teachings and Spritual Exercises of Eck--The Holy Spirit especially the HU Song which Benodic is trying to teach here cos I think they will now put in the final piece of the puzzle...sometimes the biggest things in life can be this simple!!! Science is now scratching the surface of the significance of sound in life...sadly many people thought spoken word is it...well learn about the HU in prayer and which ever way you think God can teach you about 99% of its hidden truths.

Meanwhile, before I learnt of Nairaland and Eckankar, I had been taken(by my Guide) to study under great masters who teach in temples of golden wisdom in Venus (planet), in the first heaven (Astral plane), here on earth in a city in the Gobi desert which had not yet been discovered by scientists cos it's invisible, but will be discovered due to high vibration in that region and so on...not everybody will experience same though. It explains why when Benodic spoke about some things which is out-of-this-world, I feel I knew these somehow or someone had told me that before. Some are simply just unbelievable that I feel I will make a laughing stock of myself when I ask him about them...but now I see the reality of God and can be comfortable around people of his kind.

Am just grateful for this life and for those who carry the message that God is indeed an everyday reality, not a reserve of a kind of people, not to be feared but loved, not something that's been postponed till we are 'sinless' or when we 'make it to heaven'. And that the true God is not 'angry' with anyone no matter his good or evil deeds, infact It's true quality is divine love...So much to share with you all... Shalom smiley

Can you please explain further. Please

@ Remilekun101

these concepts are best experienced than talking about them. no amount of words I will utter will ever bring to light the wonderful awesomeness of God's love for us as soul. it is only when you experience it that you can understand .
why don't you ask within. that is the starting point

A cornerstone of ECKANKAR is the value of personal spiritual experience . Reading a book or listening to a friend will give you only a small understanding of the spiritual worlds and your role in them .

Brethren,

Let us not concern ourselves with genealogy whether there be knowledge it shall pass away only love shall abide forever, so, go out there and be loving. Remember love transcends beyond religion, colour, nation, political class, wealth, wisdom but it is the fulfilling of the law. With love would you come to the consciousness that the Kingdom of God is within you, even closer than your tongue is to the teeth. Also depart from iniquities.

He that loveth knoweth God and abides with God.

Peace!!!!

I've been restlessly seeking answers. Been aware of Eckankar, but just tried to join recently(Jan) when I read Benodic.

Went to d Agege stadium branch, but wasn't impressed. Was expecting d participants to look as distinct as Jehovah witnesses. Dey didn't look like pple who av received enlightenment. Wasn't getting d rite vibes, sha.


Can u help me?
Re: The Journey Of Soul by benodic: 7:34am On Mar 10, 2016
@ ashjay001

your post really made me laugh .
seriously what were you expecting to see? people with fire coming out of their eyes or people with starched uniform walking solemnly so as not to step on an ant.

what you have failed to realize is that most of the people you will see at ECK centers are common people just like you. Hungry seekers of truth at the threshold trying to realize who and what they are.

if you really want truth , I suggest you stop focusing on others and start focusing on yourself .
truth is never found outside of you. it is found within you. the spiritual exercises of ECK helps to unlock the truth embedded within you.

@benodic

Don't laugh abeg. With d way u speak of Hu, everyone who taps into it, is supposed to feel a measure of d creator.

I might be looking for enlightenment, but hopefully not at d hands of someone who doesn't know d truth too.

U should understand what I want. I'm not expecting fire, but I'm also not expecting ur members to look like everyday churchgoers.

Maybe, we should make ds chat private? Do I pm u?

@ ashjay001 ,

the starting point is the spiritual exercises of ECK, the most basic being the singing of the HU as a love song to God.

why this is important as a starting point is because we do not work with belief in ECK. Experience is what is more important. I can fill the next ten pages talking about the light of God but it will not make any sense to you until you have experienced the light of God.

you can explore the Eckankar website, there you can download a lot of materials and videos that can help you out. you can also listen to a grp of ECKists singing the HU .

ours is an experiential path and experience always remains the best teacher

Your experience with the spiritual Light and Sound of God will enrich your life and help you put daily problems into loving perspective.

There's a common thread running through all religious and spiritual teachings. It's called the ECK. It is also known as the Holy Spirit, the word of God, and the Audible Life Stream.

Though the teachings of Eckankar have ancient roots, they are timeless. They're a living teaching. They speak to us through books and through experience in both the dream and waking states.

The key Teacher and mentor in Eckankar is the Living ECK Master. Eckankar is never without a living Master. This ensures the religion remains pure and appropriate for the consciousness of the day.

Eckankar is a religion but not an orthodox religion. Eckankar is a religion for the individual - what many of us hoped religion would be. it is designed to help individuals find their own way back to God through direct personal experiences.

There is no desire to convert people to Eckankar. Though many Eckists share their spiritual enthusiasm with others, there is an abiding respect for the belief systems of all people.

The ECK message therefore tends to be offered in a quiet and steady way. The teachings are written to speak to the inner being, Soul. They don't play off the emotions or the fears of spiritual seekers.

ECKists come from all walks of life. Their only common denominator is a love of God and a commitment to spiritual unfoldment

Re: The Journey Of Soul by benodic: 9:30am On Mar 23, 2016
many people who have come into Eckankar have done so because their questions about life were not being answered by orthodox and traditional teachings.

Light and Sound of God - The Holy Spirit. The two aspects through which God appears in the lower worlds. The Holy Spirit can appear to us as Light, which is a reflection of the atoms of God moving in space, or as Sound, which is the Audible Life Current that carries Soul back home to God.

The Spiritual Exercises of ECK show people how to look and listen within themselves for these qualities of Divine Spirit for upliftmemt and guidance.
