As a columnist for Eckankar’s Animals Are Soul blog, I had the opportunity to be interviewed on an “Animal Writes” podcast from the Pet Life Radio network. It was delightful to talk with the podcast’s host, Tim Link, and his animal-loving audience. To listen to the podcast, click on any of the links at the end of this article.
Tim is an author who has been interviewed for national and local television and radio shows as well as newspaper and magazine articles. He closed our interview by saying, “I encourage everyone to go to the Animals Are Soul blog. Take a look at it. Learn a lot. Share your stories. Find other stories that relate to you and your spiritual path. It’s a wonderful, wonderful blog.” Read More
This clip—and the transcript below—is from Harold Klemp’s talk “The Breath of God” in 2006.
“Lisa” is an Australian, and some time ago she lost her first daughter. The girl was only three months old when she passed away. Lisa was heartbroken. But later she realized that she had repaid karma of a certain kind, both with that Soul and of her own.
Through this, she learned to value life more than she did before. Then, seven years later, she had a second daughter. Read More
I was to be the cleric for a local ECK Light and Sound Service and thought it best to get a haircut. My longtime barber had translated (passed on) unexpectedly. His shop partner, Cheryl, had cut my hair on occasion, so I switched to her.
When I sat down in her barber chair, Cheryl asked the usual question: “How do you want your hair cut?”
I replied, “Just a light trim” and then added, “I’ll be wearing a suit this weekend and want to look nice.”
Even as these words were coming out of my mouth, I wondered, Why am I saying this?
My dad was a great person to have coffee with and talk. He was very intelligent. Every day we would meet and talk and talk. He particularly had a dislike of religions. I never let it bother me but sometimes I got weary of all the talks.
One day my dad complained of being weak. He was a body builder and in great shape. He was proud of his accomplishments in the local gym. The weakness continued, until we learned that my dad had ALS, a serious terminal illness that attacks the muscles. Read More
After my dear ECK friend translated I had a dream. I did not know her that well until a few years before she died. She was ill with cancer and was in need of assistance. We lived close to each other and Spirit nudged me that I was supposed to help her.
At first it was just to make her juice, but as time passed it became more things. Anything from taking her to doctors’ appointments, to help arranging caregivers as she grew very weak or going to her side in the middle of the night when she was in crisis. Over the years we became very close. She was like a sister. I was with her just before she translated. She asked to be alone, and ten minutes later I received the call that she had left her physical body behind. Read More
