Eckankar is a “Go-to Religion”
By Pier, Florida
My car died in the driveway. My car is everything to me, of course my only means of getting around. I am low on money as well.
It was towed to the local mechanic shop. They quoted me $1,700! And that wouldn’t take care of all the problems. While I was getting this bad news, a computer guy was working on my computer. He overheard me and said, “I used to work in a body shop and that is an outrageous price. You should get a second opinion.”
I thought, What a good idea. I decided to call around and most of the shops were closed on Saturday. Then the Mahanta gave me an idea, “Call the guy who sold you the car six years ago.” I was sure he wouldn’t have the same phone number. But I called him after the Mahanta gave the nudge and he answered the phone! The shop he recommended was also closed on Saturdays, the only day I could get a ride home. Then suddenly he said, “Wait, I heard about this mobile mechanic.” “Yes,” I said, “that would be perfect.”
And that is when I met Will. He was a big man with a big heart. I told him what had happened and he said, “Let me look at your car.” Then he said, “You need a hug!” It surprised me, but I let him give me a big bear hug!
Then he proceeded to work on my car for a couple hours. When it came time to pay, he said it’s only $250.00. I couldn’t believe it. The Mahanta had led me to the right person, and one with a golden heart. This is an example of how the ECK works in my life. Mostly it is the love from the Mahanta, helping all the time, like a huge hand, a warm blanket and good friend in need.
