Patience and Commitment

One of the most common stumbling blocks for the new ECKist is impatience. For the more experienced ECKist, it is often commitment.

After doing the Spiritual Exercises of ECK for just two or three weeks, someone will write in and say, "I must be doing something wrong. I'm not having any experiences. My life seems to be worse than before."

Say you're going to study to be a doctor—and it's a profession worthy of putting your whole attention into for an entire lifetime. How many would expect to become a doctor or be good enough to perform intricate surgery after only two weeks?

It takes longer for some. Others have done the groundwork in other lifetimes, and they pick up the spiritual exercises more quickly.

An excuse that twenty minutes a day is too much time to spend on the Spiritual Exercises of ECK shows little self-discipline. This is like the fellow who talks of becoming a writer but gives all sorts of reasons why he does not write. The truth is, he is simply not committed to writing.

Is the ECKist committed to the expansion of consciousness?
