My father had been brought up as an orthodox Jew, and although he was a very spiritual man, he was wary of the spiritual path I’d chosen for myself. Eckankar seemed foreign and unfamiliar to him.
But as I began to practice the Spiritual Exercises of ECK, my father immediately realized something was different about me. He also noticed that when I returned from an Eckankar seminar I was filled with more light and love.
“Whatever you’re doing,” he said, “it must be good.” Read More

My wife and I decided to go on a vacation to Portugal with my eldest daughter and her husband. As we reviewed the details of our trip, my wife realized our return flight to Munich was scheduled to land in the middle of the night. We lived two and a half hours from the airport, and my wife was concerned about the long drive home.
Instead of traveling such a long way in the dark, she suggested we stay in a hotel that night.
I thought her concerns were unfounded. I like to drive and didn’t mind traveling another few hours home. So we decided not to take the hotel room.
Several days later, I had a terrible dream.
I am standing near metal bars or railings. Next to me are the damaged remains of a car. Its left door hangs open. Nearby, a human body is lying on the road, cut in two. Read More

One rainy afternoon I drove along an expressway listening to the beautiful song of HU playing on my car stereo. An ancient and sacred name of God, the sound of HU can open the heart to the Holy Spirit’s love and protection.
Soon I noticed the driving conditions had become increasingly dangerous. I had already passed one car accident, and now rainwater was pooling on the road.
I hit my brakes to slow down.
Suddenly, the car skidded out of control and went into a spin. Swinging around and around, I careened into traffic, heading toward a railed embankment. All I could do was hold the steering wheel tightly as I prepared myself for the coming collision. Read More

A farmer in Scotland had a large herd of cows. He and his wife treated these cows like their children. Every morning they’d come out to feed and milk them. They would call each cow by name and give them little treats. They’d pet them. The cows loved the farmer and his wife, and the couple loved the cows.
One day the farmer got on his tractor and drove out into the field to check on a newborn calf. This was risky because a neighbor’s bull had been brought over for breeding purposes and was loose in the field.
When the bull saw the farmer, he charged the tractor and knocked the farmer off and began to gore him. The farmer went unconscious. Read More

Although a student of Eckankar, I occasionally doubted the constant presence of the Mahanta in my life. I wondered if the Inner Master‘s promise, I am always with you, was really true.
One evening, I was lying in bed, trying to decide whether I should do a spiritual exercise, have dinner, or just go to sleep. All of a sudden, I heard the very clear voice of the Inner Master within me.
“Get up and sing HU!” he said.
The voice was so strong and urgent, it sounded like a command. I promptly got out of bed and began singing HU, Soul‘s love song to God. About five minutes into the spiritual exercise, I heard another clear, inner instruction. Read More
