Getting Help from an ECK Master

Paul Twitchell_internetBy Pat, New Mexico

I and my then fiancée (now wife) had an encounter with an ECK Master. It was in the summer of 1989 in La Jolla, California.

My fiancée and I had parked our car at Torrey Pines State Beach on the coastline. We hiked south along the beach. We passed by a trail which led from the beach up to the cliff tops that looked over the sea. I thought to myself “There’ll be another one up ahead that we can take.”

Well it turned out that there was no other trail up ahead and we wound up walking all the way to Scripps Pier to the south before we could turn inland to make our way back. A distance of several miles.

My fiancée had a bad knee which began to give out about this time. I began chanting HU silently and asked the Mahanta and the ECK Masters for help.

We were walking along the center median and I again turned our situation over to the ECK. An older car pulled up alongside us. It was about a 1970 model (this was in 1989). The car was pearl white and seemed to be in perfect condition, like it was brand new. An older gentleman about 80 years old was driving. He said that he was looking for the VA Hospital and had made a wrong turn. Could we direct him to the VA?

I told him that we had parked our car up ahead at the beach. Could he give us a ride and we’d show him the way to the VA? He said sure so we hopped in. He had crutches and some equipment on the passenger seat and so we both got into the back seat of the four door vehicle. It felt as though we were being chauffeured. We made small talk with the driver and it dawned on me that we were in the presence of an ECK Master who’d come to give us assistance. It was an answer to the help that I had asked of the ECK out of concern for my fiancée and her bad knee.

I felt the certainty in my being that this man was indeed an ECK Master. And everything took on a surreal quality as though time had just slipped.

As we pulled up to Torrey Pines Beach, we were in view of the 5–Freeway. I told the man to take the 5–Freeway south for one exit and to get off and turn right and that the VA Hospital would be right there.

I began to doubt myself that I might just be imagining that this man was an ECK Master. And then he looked directly into my eyes. His eyes sparkled a deep blue. I felt like I was looking into eternity. And then he said simply, “I guess the universe didn’t want you to have to walk any further today!” Who talks like that? No, he was indeed an ECK Master and seemed vaguely familiar at the same time. I thanked him and we parted.

Later on looking back at it, he had resembled Paul Twitchell but older. The man had been 80 or so in 1989. The age that Paul would have been in 1989 had he lived. In fact Paul Twitchell’s home was only a stone’s throw away from where this man had dropped us off, in Del Mar. Torrey Pines State Beach is on the line dividing La Jolla and Del Mar.

Years earlier I worked in La Jolla Science Park next to UCSD. High on the cliff tops overlooking the Pacific. On my lunch hour I used to sit up on the cliff tops of La Jolla, Del Mar, and Solana Beach and do my spiritual exercises.

I learned later, I believe, in reading Paulji, a Memoir written by Patti Simpson that Paul had lived in Del Mar and had practiced his spiritual exercises in some of these same places along the cliff tops that I was drawn to 15 years later while working in La Jolla.

I wondered, “If we had taken that first trail up from the beach to the cliff top, would we have found Paulji sitting at the top practicing his spiritual exercises?” No, he was at home getting the car ready. Two chelas were in trouble and needed him.

    It is so wonderful to read about the many stories of meeting ECK masters. I have had experiences before and after becoming a Chela. An experience I had before Eckankar was when I was waiting for a bus. I felt the sun shining over me and a lady standing next to me said, “You believe in God don’t you.” I was surprised but said, “Yes…Yes I do.” the bus came and I took a few steps and then turned to look for her. She was gone. I realized after joining Eckankar that she was an ECK master. Blessings to all.

    So many wonderful stories of help from the ECK Masters! My story came to me in a dream. I was in a bad auto accident in the dream state. I awakened startled, so I began to do a HU to calm me down. The next day our area of Iowa had a snowstorm, but I had to drive my husband to DMACC, the community college several miles from me. I did, but then on my way home, I slid on the ice and was gently hit by another car. Just a fender bender, because the ECK Masters had already taken care of the accident karma in the dream state.

    When I first became an eckist I learned a way of protection was by surrounding my body in a white light. I would do this constantly but my mind would have periods of doubt until one dark wintery morning as I road my bike to work a car came directly at me at a high speed. The normal outcome would have been my instant death but instead a protective force shot me forward out of the path of the car.
    I have since learned that the Living Eck Master also guides us upon our asking.

    Eck masters are co workers with God, in Eck the teachings are practical. You experince it yourself, that is why Eck teachings are different, you prove it yourself, it worthwhile being part of the Eck community .

    I love to read all the experiences/stories of my fellow Eckists. Always enjoy them. I have not yet had any similar encounters but hope to someday soon. Thank you all for sharing. Looking forward to many more.
    May The Blessings Be!!

    I became a member of Eckankar in 1975. I knew it was the reason for my coming into this lifetime. I had a bumper sticker on the side of my semi truck that said: Thank God I am In ECKANKAR.

    I took a short cut near Norfolk Nebraska, that connected to the main highway. It was a wash board road as we used to say. I was trying to drive on the smoothest part of that country road. Before I realized it; my tires slid off into the ditch and my truck landed on it’s side. Spilling my load of steel into the ditch. Since I was not wearing a seat belt; I fell to the other side of the cab. In my spiritual immaturity I thought; Where is the protection of the ECK Master?

    The following morning I was back with the truck crane to help lift the steel bundles onto another truck. Things were going pretty smooth as the bundles were lifted up. The next bundle was harder to reach. I pulled the steel cable farther than the crane could reach. As the operator took up the slack on the cable; it came in contact with the overhead rural power cable. I had both of my hands holding the cable in place. I felt the current from the electric power line course through my chest. It was like time had slowed down and I felt I was flying backwards. I called out inwardly: Master; Help! In the next instant in that slowed down time frame. It felt like a powerful hand on my neck was pushing me back into my body. I didn’t suffer much injuries as one usually does in this type of accident. I was told by the emergency room doctors that I was so very lucky that the current didn’t stop my heart. I realized at that moment that there is no such word as lucky. The Mahanta is Always with me.

    What a wonderful story! I could totally see Paulji helping you out like that. I was fortunate to have known him and worked with him in the early days of ECK. Not only that, but I had a wonderful experience in Torrey Pines myself back in the day, so I was right there with you. Thanks for sharing!

    It is amazing how chanting HU works and ask for MAHANTA to help us just surrender and have faith on him and the situation will be okey. May the Blessings Be


  14. Geetha Murthy says:

    Blessed are those who have been helped by Eck masters. Still blessed are those who have recognised them. Mr.Pat, you are blessed and we are blessed by your story. Thank you.

He was Fubbi Quantz, the ation Eck Master .

  16. David Baillie says:

    When I relax and sing a few HU and enter into my heart while waiting for a ride hitch-hiking I have a thought as each car goes by that the Mahanta has organised my ride and the loving soul that will stop to pick me up will enjoy the company of a loving soul like me, that our hearts will sing as we enjoy company together and learn from each other.

    Sometimes there's a wait, sometimes the waiting has taken place serving others longer than expected before I even leave and I barely get there in time to meet my ride. Sometimes my ride even comes to me while I'm walking into town, with my thumb in my pocket.

    The rides keep coming as Mahanta organises them, I am to patient, ready for the unexpected, and to see the Mahanta and ECK Masters in all I meet.

    Each is a beautiful soul, the ECK (Spirit) has touched and together we have interesting connections of the heart.

    Some of course could actually be ECK Masters. Thanks for this story.

    Love, David

    I believe and have faith that spiritual travellers of the time are here and around helping us on our journey back to God. Yesterday a friend of mine shared how in the middle of the desert in the dark, many years ago in Egypt…. He has just left the St Mina monastery for his prayer of guidance as he was relocating to Australia from Egypt. After his prayers at the monastery where he presented his passports and air tickets, he started off even when the monks said its dark …. How do you walk the desert. He had to leave the monastery as he had flight to catch. He found that outside the monastery he wouldn’t find direction as it was pitch dark. But as he braved on, a light came out of the bag he carried and was behaving like campus showing direction. He shook and obliged to follow the lights direction….. After some distance a car came circulating not in the sky …. In circles around him up above and all of a sudden, the car was by his side. His spiritual guide he went to consult at the monastery was the man behind the wheel. He came out of nowhere driving this car to drop him to a nearby road. Who drives in desert sand???? He looked at the man and this man glowed on the face like a light. He got in and the moment he dropped at the road… The man said…. Am sure you will be safe here. He said yes and thanked the man and the moment he shut the door….the car disappear, spiritual travellers!!! Wah Z i thank you for even when other people not in ECK can see the wonderful power of ECK???

    My thanks to Mahanta knows no bounds. As one of the medical team that worked on the Liberia Ebola patient that came to First Consultant Medical Centre in Lagos Nigeria, most in the laboratory. I became alarmed having worked on his blood sample the very night he was addmited. The alarm I raised the following day due to the parameters of his results that led Doctor Adadevour to request for viral test that nailed the disease along with clinical presentations.I intensified my spiritual exercise by surrendering the situation to the Mahanta the living ECk master. My initial fear of possible infection was cleared when in my dream state, a female Eck master sent by the Mahanta drained all the blood in me and poured it on the floor. That was why when the doctor was afraid that I may have gotten , Ebola, my wife told her I was fine. It all turned out that she was the one that got it and actually couldn't survive it. I felt bad because she was a lovely woman who place the health of others first before hers. May the blessings be.

    It is very difficult to see bad things happen to people you love. Some times I wish those things happen to me instead of happenong to them . It is very difficult to see people you love suffer from something and you can not help them.
    Mahanta thanks for today I know you are with people who love you.

  22. George Christopher says:

    Indeed a magnificent location, a setting on the bluffs overlooking the Pacific Ocean with the rare Torrey Pine trees, kudos to your experience for having the eyes and ears to hear and see the ECK in action. I was once married at the Hi-point their!

  23. Carol Cameron says:

    These happenings are so very special! Thank you for sharing this experience.

    Earlier this year my battery was dead when I tried to leave a local library. I had one hour to make it to a meeting w/someone who has a significant role to play in assisting the homeless in my county. A man who was quietly sitting in his car next to mine leaped out and offered to give me assistance. He got my battery started, and I offered him a small ECK book as a form of thanks. He told me he’d heard of Eckankar with a great big smile. Later, I gave another ECK book to the lady I referenced above. I feel I was the “vehicle” for this transaction, and an ECK master had been present to assist me in my “mission.” There was a very special glow around the event.

  24. Sammy says:

    Sharing your experience fills my heart with deep gratitude for all the love showered on us by these wonderful Masters of the Audible Life Stream, (ECK)
    May The Blessings BE!

  25. Mehdi says:

    I used to think every time I need help and seeking for help by chanting Hu I have to receive help. I learnt some experiences need to be completed to clear a karma and sometimes increase our awareness about sugmad. I am in this life to get to the next level of purity so some tough experiences are essential for me. When I sing Hu I am sure I am in safe hands so whatever happen I trust Sugmad and Mahanta.
