This is the story of “Alita.” She’s the mom of Minnou, a cat she’s owned for ten years. I have to say, the only name that I haven’t changed in these stories is Minnou’s. I don’t think she’ll mind.
During the ten years that Minnou has lived in Alita’s home, the Spiritual Exercises of ECK have become very important for Minnou. This is the HU session with the Mahanta, the Inner Master.
Well, Alita had just taken up knitting. She became so engrossed in knitting one day, she knitted clean through the time set aside for the HU session. OK, Minnou forgave her that day, but this HU session is for Minnou too. Read More
Some people never recognize the blessings they receive. Others may look back and realize they’ve had a gift of healing of some sort. Maybe something has changed at work to make their life better. But it depends upon the individual—how conscious you are.
A spiritual exercise to begin recognizing your gifts is this: Sing HU quietly to yourself or out loud. Look at the obstacles in your life that you think are stumbling blocks. Imagine them becoming stepping-stones. How are they teaching you about yourself? Open yourself and gain greater awareness of this as you sing HU. Read More
The word HU will spiritualize you. It’s an ancient name for God. Sing HU on the way to work, for instance, and you will find that you have a different way of looking at the people around you and at the work you do.
Just sing HU every day. Take it to heart, and then go about your daily life.
Wherever you are, do the things that are necessary: bring home the groceries, sweep the floor. Do these things, and someday you will find that you have the secret of truth in your hand. You will have the secret of truth in your heart.

Every month Sophia and a friend go from Mexico City to Guadalajara to teach a Satsang class. They’re Higher Initiates. The flight takes about an hour each way. When they arrive back home, they get a taxi.
One time they found that their taxi driver was a woman. This is very unusual in Mexico, so they commented on it to their driver. They said, “Very unusual, but we’re happy to have you.”
They started going to their respective homes. As they were driving along, the cab driver overheard them talking in back. She said, “Do you teach a class?” They said, “Yes, we do.” “A class on what?” Read More
As I often do, I declared myself a vehicle for the Mahanta one day before arriving at the hospital where I work. I would try my best to see with the Master’s eyes, listen with the Master’s ears, and feel with the Master’s heart.
A little while after I started my shift, I noticed the light flashing above a patient’s door. It indicated that a patient in the room needed assistance.
I knocked on her door. “Please come in,” said a voice inside the room. I entered and saw a woman lying in bed, bandaged and hooked up to IVs.
“What are you doing here?” she asked in an angry voice. Read More
Welcome to A Year of Blessing! Sri Harold says, “Bless each moment, each thought, each word, and each deed. Let only the pure love of God flow from you and into your own universe.”
Imagine the year that will bring!
Each seminar appearance of the Mahanta, the Living ECK Master ushers a new current of God’s love into the world, offering a spiritual renovation of the heart for all who love God. Old patterns give way to healing and purification.
These blessings touch all life. Have you discovered your gift?
Have you ever wondered about the purpose of studying the teachings of Eckankar?
Sri Harold writes about a woman who becomes intrigued with the teachings after reading The Wind of Change.
In the article below Sri Harold describes himself the way he looked in earlier years as “this man with the glasses and the brown hair.” In a dream he introduces the woman to spiritual laws contained in the “Book of Rules.”
How many years does it take some people to become members of ECK? Sometimes we are surrounded by family and friends who are members of ECK. Other times we find ourselves alone in a remote part of the world, and there is no one else who has ever heard about the ECK teachings. But whatever happens, somewhere there is a connection.

Sarah was living with her mom, Miriam, and Miriam was fighting depression. For no reason at all, she would just burst into tears. A waterfall would come gushing out, and there she was, just crying and crying. Sarah felt really bad about the whole thing, and she asked the Inner Master, the Mahanta, “Mahanta, what can I do to help my mom?”
So she chanted HU aloud. Then she talked to her mom, and she kissed her mom. And guess what? You guessed wrong. Her mom became angry. She did not like that. Don’t touch, keep away. So it didn’t help. Read More
If you are faced with negative attitudes about people, how can you feel the love of the Mahanta? Here are three ways:
If you meet someone that you have negative feelings about, silently say to yourself, “In the name of the Sugmad.” Repeat this phrase to yourself each time this occurs, blessing the situation and letting it go.
Be polite when these people are near you, but chant HU silently within yourself. Listen to them while you chant, rather than getting into a long conversation with them. Say as little as possible while still remaining cordial.
In your imagination, see the Mahanta near you.
When you bless a situation, you keep yourself in balance and do not become involved in the negative conditions. In addition, if you are a true channel for the ECK, miracles will take place around you.
“Cecile” attended workshops at an ECK Worldwide Seminar and focused upon her mission: Be yourself and serve life.
Drawn to the park across from the site of the seminar, the Minneapolis Convention Center, she came upon a joyful wedding party gathered for photographs, while golden sunlight splashed the autumn leaves overhead. But the perfection of the moment was suddenly broken.
An angry bicyclist was cursing a car parked at the curb in front of the park’s entrance. It was blocking the bike lane.
The driver emerged from the car, explaining, “I’m trying to get these ninety-year-old people out of the car.” Then he added, “God bless.” Cecile guessed the passengers were the proud grandparents of the bride and groom. The harsh scolding of the bicyclist had opened the door for her to clear the air by offering an act of kindness to comfort the family.
