The ECK, Divine Spirit, pushes us into a situation where—by agreement, by saying we would like the next-higher stage of illumination—we open ourselves to changes in our life.
The moment we say to the Mahanta, “I am ready; take me where you will,” is like the flash of lightning. In the space of time that follows, we face the unknown. We go about our life, changes start to occur, and we don’t quite understand what’s happening or how it’s going to turn out. Read More
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.

A woman had run her life by the forces of power and control instead of love. When she came into contact with other people, her inclination was to control them, to tell them what to do. The woman had developed some bad habits, but she couldn’t pinpoint what this was doing to her life.
So the Dream Master gave her an experience about habits. One night in the dream state, the Dream Master took her into a basement with a group of people. The basement was very dark. Leeches were crawling on the floors and walls.
The people in the basement felt it was very important to pluck the leeches off themselves. They spent most of their time just sitting in the basements, plucking and plucking. Read More

A few years ago I was assigned a patient with tongue cancer who wanted to leave our nursing station. She didn’t get along with the caregiver and that person didn’t get along with her. Recently her arm was broken during nursing by the caregiver. Following which she refused any further contact with this caregiver. I only had to take care of this woman for the last four weeks before she left our nursing station.
I was not excited about doing this work. This patient was feared by my colleagues because of her aggressive behavior. So quite reluctantly I started to visit this woman in her home. My work included helping her with basic personal hygiene, preparing breakfast and taking care of various tasks in her home. The old woman received me very sullenly. I found out that she was an ethnic German immigrant to Germany from the former Soviet Union. Read More

What is this life all about? I would have to say it’s about fear and how to overcome it.
You have a job, you’re afraid of losing your job. You have health, and you’re afraid of losing it. Your child is sick, and you’re afraid your child won’t get any better. Will you have enough to feed your family? These are all fears. The experience in this world seems to be total fear.
When fear is a dominant player in your life, it steals the joy and freedom of living.
Hidden fears—stacks and stacks, piles and piles of them—reside in each human being. What is their origin? Many fears developed before your birth into this lifetime. Each human being carries a history of hundreds or thousands of past lives. That allows plenty of time to hurt others. And it also gives them a chance to hurt you. Get hurt enough in a certain way, and you cringe from the mere thought of that sort of pain.
People are not born equal. At birth each brings a unique load of karma. Read More
