A Message From
The Regional ECK Spiritual Aide for Washington
Welcome to Eckankar in Washington! Eckankar is the path of spiritual freedom. No matter what religion or spiritual teaching you follow, perhaps you, too, have felt that inner pull toward greater spiritual freedom, heard that inner voice, or had a personal spiritual experience that helps you know the right choice to make, the next step to take, or gives you the confidence to make an important change in your life. This inner guidance is always available to help us walk the path toward spiritual freedom in our own unique way.
In the booklet ECK Wisdom on Spiritual Freedom, Harold Klemp, the spiritual leader of Eckankar, writes, “Soul is an eagle, but we must recognize our identity. As an eagle, we have to accept the responsibility of being ourselves, and not react to other people’s emotions, viewpoints, and efforts to control us. We have to be cause in our own lives and not the effect of others. That is the difference between a free man and a slave. Spiritual freedom is living to your full potential—heart, mind, and Soul. What could be more satisfying?”
Eckankar is a teaching that relies on our having personal spiritual experiences, and gives us the tools to deepen and develop them further. There are spiritual discussion groups, HU Chants, workshops, and introductory talks happening throughout the state that you are welcome to attend. Eckankar also offers monthly discourses (lessons) to those who choose to become students. These advanced spiritual lessons may be studied either privately, or in a class where you can discuss the material with others to gain further insight.
Many have found that Eckankar is a wonderful path toward spiritual freedom. I wish you the best on your spiritual journey, and hope that learning more about Eckankar will help you further along the way.
