Finding My Path - Mastering Our Spiritual Destiny
Why am I here? What is the meaning of life? What is my mission? Do I really have a mission? How do I know what I’m supposed to do?
We have been born under a case of mistaken identity. Almost everything we see, hear, and experience—keeps us in the dark about who and what we truly are. Our mistaken identity is that we are merely human beings having an occasional spiritual experience; circumscribed by our personality, a product of our culture and family, destined to die.
But our true nature is exactly the opposite. Philosopher Pierre Teilhard de Chardin expressed the truth when he said, “We are not human beings having a spiritual experience. We are spiritual beings having a human experience.”
Eckankar teaches that we are all Soul, a spark of the Divine, and as such our ultimate goal is to become co-workers with God helping Soul find Its way back to It-Self and to God.
Locked up in the seed of Soul is not just an image, calling, or pattern of potential; Soul is the fully realized Self, formed in the invisible dimension of your being. And while Soul makes use of the raw materials of your life to take shape, It is not dependent on anything outside of you for Its existence, as Soul already possesses the power and substance to manifest whatever It needs.
And finally on this journey, and that is what this is: a journey, not a destination you’ll realize that there really is no time or space—that everything is happening here and now. There is only the continuous discovery and expression of your infinite divine potential in this moment. That’s the only raw material you have to work with; that’s all you’ll ever have to deal with—this moment, in the infinite love and vastness of God. “Love is the force that returns Soul to God. For the path of truth starts in the heart…” —Harold Klemp, ECK Wisdom on Spiritual Freedom, pp. 14-15
“So we come to the most important part of life’s message: It is not what we do that determines our experience in life, but it is what we expect!” —Paul Twitchell, The Key to Eckankar, p. 14
“We have to be cause in our own lives and not the effect of others.” —Harold Klemp, ECK Wisdom on Spiritual Freedom, p. 2
