An Antidote to Fear
Eckankar’s name for God—the Supreme Deity with no limits, characteristics, or gender—is Sugmad. Its expression—Divine Spirit, or ECK—can be seen as Light and heard as Sound.
The Master referred to in the spiritual exercise below is the living spiritual teacher and guide who helps people rediscover their connection with Sugmad. When you accept his invitation to conquer fear and take your next spiritual steps, opportunities may open for you to help someone else. These are the timeless rhythms of spiritual growth.
Are you ready to climb the ancient stairway to heavenly worlds?
By Harold Klemp
“This is the way the divine Sugmad outwardly and inwardly moves toward the fullness of Its reality into inner awareness; and Soul is that part of man’s being which has the power to ascend and descend the steps toward the heavenly worlds.”
—The Shariyat-Ki-Sugmad, Book Two, p. 116
Whenever you feel fear, self-doubt, or stress of any kind, visualize the Master at the foot of an infinite staircase. He is inviting you to step up higher into the worlds of God’s love for you.

When you accept the Master’s invitation, you will be given a chance to make it easier for another Soul to take a step forward. Will you share the HU? Help someone clean up an error? Avoid giving criticism?
There is a gift for you in acting on your new awareness.
