I found myself in a situation that forced me to confront my fear.
It had started snowing heavily in the morning. And when I was driving home from University in the evening, the snowstorm raged hard. Carefully, I started my way homewards on the icy roads.
The storm hit 100 km/h and the blowing snow intensified. Read More

Despite a blue and clear sky and magnificent sunshine outside, my heart felt very overcast. It was one of those lonely days when I asked myself—is the Master truly always with me?
To cheer myself up, I grabbed a blanket and a book and headed for the nearby city gardens.
Once there I encountered much bustle; many people enjoyed the splendor of the flowers, the splashing fountain and simply devoted themselves to this beautiful day. On one of the grassy areas close to the edge of the huge pond I spread out my blanket and surrendered my heavy heart to the sight of the fountain and a single cluster of reeds. Read More

The Spindrift Organization has done a lot of experiments in the lab trying to prove that prayer works. They set up experiments with plants, and they tried directed prayer. They’d always have a control group. Then they would see if there were any differences in plant growth. And there were.
They did these experiments for a while, and then somebody had an idea. They said, “We’ve proved now that prayer changes things.” In other words, saying to the little plant, “Grow!” “But now let’s see if there’s a difference between directed prayer and other types.” They wanted to look at another kind of prayer, which is nondirected prayer.

My younger sister was ill. She kept fainting, and no one knew how to help her. Eventually, she went to her doctor and received a devastating diagnosis: She had an inoperable brain tumor and had only a few months to live. She was only thirty-six years old.
When I heard the news, I wanted to see her. Although she was of another faith, I thought it might help her to have some material on the ECK teachings, so I packed some books and tapes on Eckankar.
When I arrived, I gave her what I’d brought and also gave her a picture of the Mahanta, the Living ECK Master. I let her know the Mahanta was the Inner Master and could help her during this difficult time. Then I shared the HU with her. Read More

I worked as an officer in a private bank in India. One day, my manager told me another branch of the bank had a work overload and the head office wondered if I’d be willing to help out. It meant transferring to the other branch for a few months.
I accepted, and one week later I was working in the other branch. My tasks went smoothly. In three months I had completed them all and began to assist as a cash officer.
One morning, my new manager told me it was time to return to my original bank branch. I offered to stay until the end of the day, but the manager refused.
“My instructions are for you to leave immediately!” he snapped. Then he walked away. Read More

Six years ago, my husband became a member of Eckankar. At the time, I had mixed feelings about this. The ECK teachings were unfamiliar to me, and I wondered about the value of singing HU as a prayer of love to God.
But I also love and trust my husband. So I went with him to ECK events to understand more about this religion.
I discovered that the ECK teachings were about God’s divine love for us as Soul. I learned that singing HU opens the doorway for a deeper connection with the Holy Spirit and draws us closer to God. I also learned about the constant presence and love of the Mahanta, the Living ECK Master, Sri Harold Klemp. In his inner form, the Mahanta is always with students of ECK to help them on their journey home to God.
But I was still not convinced the ECK teachings were for me. Without having any personal experiences of my own, I had difficulty accepting them as true.
Then something happened to change my point of view. Read More

My partner and I have lived together like a married couple for thirty years, but gay marriage was not legal yet. We belonged to a country club, where I played tennis regularly. Many of the members and tennis staff knew us and were very congenial and welcoming, but the main administration did not.
I unwittingly did something that brought our situation to light. Within a week we were sent a letter informing us that I was not welcome there as a member. Read More
