It's 1970. A dark Wisconsin night. A once-shy farm boy, now in his twenties, stands on a bridge over a river. He's left the farm, studied for the clergy, and done a stint in the air force. He's a proofreader now. He's seen faraway places, but tonight he's in Wisconsin, overlooking the dark water. He's about to see the face of God, to become a God-Realized man.

Overview

It's 1970. A dark Wisconsin night. A once-shy farm boy, now in his twenties, stands on a bridge over a river. He's left the farm, studied for the clergy, and done a stint in the air force. He's a proofreader now. He's seen faraway places, but tonight he's in Wisconsin, overlooking the dark water. He's about to see the face of God, to become a God-Realized man.

From this momentous turning point, Harold Klemp's life would never be the same. His incredible experience that night was simply a prelude to a time of testing, humbling, cleansing, yet blessed experience with the Light and Sound of God. He would emerge as the spiritual leader and modern-day prophet of Eckankar.

This is his spiritual autobiography. "This book," he says, "is about God-Realization and the myths that surround the highest state of spiritual realization known to mankind. The first and greatest illusion is that once God-Realization is attained, the battle for higher consciousness is forever won. This oversimplifies things. . . .

"The hard part came after God-Realization. Now I had to return to the problems of life and confront them. The specter of God's haunting love was always with me. . . . It carried me beyond the pleasant cooing of belief and faith, thrusting me into a brilliant world of light shorn of all illusion."

If a shy Wisconsin farm boy can master his spiritual destiny, why can't we?

According to Gallup, 82% of those polled in America alone want to experience spiritual growth. Believe it or not, it is your destiny to discover your godlike nature, your spiritual greatness.

"Tucked away in the hidden places of this book are clues as to how you too may reach the glories of God," says Klemp.

"Now come with me on my journey."

This book combines some information from previously published books and adds some of its own. Very personal story of a spiritual seeker strugling with the demands of modern living, family, health, career, and finding working answers through spiritual technics, some of which are given in the book. Easy to read, hard to put down.

I have been a spiritual student and seeker for over 29 years and found this book an oasis of grand proportion. It is incredibly well written and the only comparable book I've read is Yogananda's Autobiography of a Yogi. It's hard to put it down. The book is very useful in the way it is writtten. His interpretations and insights into past lives, dreams and a common sense approach are refreshing. I especially liked the tips about the importance of journaling our dreams, the exercises and tips and sincerity behind what he shares. He writes about growing spiritually in a way most of us long to know. His honesty and love of God ring loud and clear in a nondogmatic way throughout the book. If you are looking for a way to grow further spiritually this is a book for you. It will stretch you in how you look at yourself, your responsibilities in life, your committment to spiritual growth and more. It's an eye opener worth reading for all us serious about spiritual growth. Sit down in your favorite reading chair and enjoy the best read of the year. A great book for the serious spiritual seeker.
