For several days I’d stewed over this weekend’s assignment: this article.
That’s seldom the case. For most assignments, ideas come to mind during the week, which I jot down, because these promptings are like vapor. They come easily, but they quickly vanish too.
So it was unusual for this article to so trouble me.
Here’s my challenge: how to differentiate my article from all the excellent stories around mine? How? A big question.
Little ideas popped up on my mind’s screen throughout the week. How about the nurse who’d shopped a number of churches before settling on one where she felt at home, among friends? No, I’d already done that. A repeat would be stale. Read More

In ECK, there is the principle of the Inner and Outer Master. The Outer Master is myself as the spiritual leader of Eckankar. But there is also an inner part, which we call the Inner Master, who gives spiritual instruction to each person as he or she needs it.
In other words, each person is unique in how they look at life, because each person’s experiences have been totally unique. Even twins are unique in that there is a different being operating through each physical body.
As the Inner Master I am able to reach and teach many people at once. More importantly, I am able to talk to each person according to his spiritual needs. This is a part of the spiritual teaching of Eckankar which might differ from what many people are used to in their previous religion. Read More
You have the potential for greater happiness, love, and understanding. Singing HU can bring these to you—through the Light and Sound of God.
Throughout the ages, followers of many spiritual traditions have used prayer, the singing of holy words, and meditation to bring themselves closer to God. In the same way, those who have discovered HU, an ancient name for God, sing it for their spiritual upliftment.
Regardless of your beliefs or religion, you can sing HU to become happier and more secure in God’s love.
Dreams are an easy and natural way to pursue spiritual unfoldment. Here is an exercise you can try before you go to sleep. It can help you see your problems from a higher viewpoint to aid you in your life.
Make a request. Before you go to sleep, write down a question about a problem that bothers you. Ask the Dream Master or your own spiritual teacher for guidance on this question. Lie down, and close your eyes.
Sing HU. Softly sing HU (pronounced like the word hue) for about five minutes. HU is an ancient name for God. It has the unique ability to lift you into a higher state of awareness. Singing HU connects you with Divine Spirit, or ECK, which can be seen as an inner light or heard as sound.
Write down your experiences. When you wake up in the morning, write down any dreams, thoughts, or feelings, even if you don’t think they are significant. As you go through your day, write down any new thoughts or experiences that relate to your problem. Do this for three to five days. Then look over your notes. You may discover that images you first thought were unrelated now make sense and give you clues to the overall pattern of your life.

A woman had a female cat for a pet. They had lived together for eleven years, and there was a very strong bond of love between them. Eventually the cat died, and the woman missed her very much.
About a year after her cat had died, the woman had a series of very clear dreams. In one dream, someone told her, “Your cat is going to reincarnate on Monday, July 31.”
When the woman woke up, she said to herself, That dream was very nice. But I live in an apartment in a big city now. I don’t know how my cat is going to find me.
Then she had a second dream. In this dream someone handed her two tiny kittens. Read More

Every evening at bedtime visualize a golden cup by your bed. Its beverage is your dreams. When you first awaken, in the morning contemplation, drink from this cup in your imagination. You are drinking in the night’s experiences. It is a conscious way of saying, I wish to recall my night’s activities on the inner planes while my body slept.
The golden cup is Soul; it is you. You are one and the same.
As you get in the habit of drinking from this cup, this practice takes on a life of its own. The more the ECK (Holy Spirit) refills this cup, the more Soul (you) shines of Its own golden light. You become an ever-brighter instrument for the Holy Spirit.
Your conscious experiences, day and night, will lead to a greater understanding of your place in the spiritual order of life.
