Book Description

What is the true test of spirituality? Is it loyalty to a master, group, or teaching? Or is it having the courage to act on one's deepest convictions, even in the face of disapproval and sanction? This is the question faced by Kip Morgan. Kip is a karma seeker--an individual committed to testing himself by means of his own choices. For such people, who are engaged in an experiment with unknown forces, there is no way to prove that they are fit to discover what they seek except by doing it.

As a young man, Kip joins the League, one of the burgeoning new age spiritual groups of the late 1960s and early 1970s. He learns the fundamentals of its teachings, which involve cultivating inner experiences through contemplation, dreams, and out-of-body experiences. The high point of his experience comes with his initiation into the League’s inner circle, a transcendent event that significantly alters his view of life. It doesn’t take long, however, before he discovers how fragile this experience is, and how difficult it is to hold on to his new state of consciousness.

Kip embarks on a quest that takes him beyond the confines of the League, and in doing so comes to question the group's claim to exclusivity and to see it as merely a portal to a universal spiritual path. As he becomes less reliant on the League and its members for support and guidance, he is torn between his personal vision of truth and his fear of spiritual failure. This puts him on a collision course with the League President, the group’s ultimate spiritual authority.

The Karma Seeker presents the reader with the essential paradigm of the modern spiritual path. It illustrates how individuals who embark on such a path are tested in the areas of their greatest deficiency in order to build up their spiritual strength, all so that they may eventually become active participants in their own destiny. .

5.0 out of 5 stars Seeking the Seeker of the Sought April 5, 2013
By Carl
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Fascinating! I came upon this book rather by accident but when I began reading it I couldn't lay it down. Maybe the searching for spirituality and the conflict with institutional controls, biases and dogmas is similar to my own past searches for similar awareness. It amazed me but does not surprise me how pervasive the idea that an "institutional authority," such as the League (ECKANKAR), or any other so called authority can grab so tightly to our thoughts and minds and freeze us from tearing away from what is tearing us up. It's like we give ourselves away to something knowing full well that the "thing itself" is causing an in-congruence between who we are and what we are supposed to be as dictated by the authority we have subjected ourselves to. And we all do it!!

I love the author's (Stefan Meyer) bravery and honesty and beg to question where he is at now? Did you leave the League? Were/are you ostracized having gone through with publishing the book? Do you still feel the pull of the original founder upon you, etc., etc.?

In any case this was one of those "reads" that pulls you along as (for me) I had to know how this would play itself out. Like I said, "I couldn't lay it down." My compliments to the author for a well written and very compelling true story.

5.0 out of 5 stars A very good read September 11, 2013
By Jean
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The author writes from a personal view and explains with details his thoughts and uncertainties; I found it takes some effort to read it through; it is his own spiritual search as an Eckist and he evaluate all his actions, feelings and thoughts through this "spiritual" approach; he describes I think about 10 years of his life.
He is candid and I thank him for helping us to see that spiritual development is not always linear.
I believe if you are an introspective kind, you will appreciate this book written from an emotional and spiritual interpretation of Eckankar; as an ex-Eckist (30 years back) who was amazed by the concepts and teachings in Twitchell books which did change my life (along with NDE's like experiences), I could never put the followings Masters (!) on an equal footing as Mr.Twitchell.
For the serious spiritual seeker, I suggest "Confessions of a Good seeker" by Ford Johnston who gives a rational analysis of Eckankar, it's beginning and the reasons he left this group; I believe facts are paramount in spiritual research.
