I Want to Go Home Now
The Gift of the ECK Teachings Is Shown through a Child’s Dream
Many years ago, my husband and I decided to separate. Soon after he moved out, my then two-year-old daughter, Heather, began to repeat, "I want to go home now!" over and over again. I thought she missed her father and was trying to say she wanted to go to his new house.
Eventually, I also moved to a new place. Then her father and I moved back in together.
But a year later, my daughter was still continuing to repeat, "I want to go home now!" She had a recurring dream where what she called a "big white bird" was teaching her how to fly. To demonstrate, she held her arms flat to her sides and flapped only her hands. Both her words and the dream were a mystery to me.
Then I went to an ECK event near my new home. At the event, I borrowed a video about the building of the Temple of ECK.
When I watched the video, my daughter was with me. At first, she sat on the floor playing and didn't pay much attention to what was happening on the screen.
But as the building of the Temple progressed and the ziggurat roof took shape, my daughter stopped what she was doing and began to watch the video with me. Excitedly, she pointed at the screen and said, "I want to go home now! I want to go home now!" No sooner had Heather spoken these words than I heard Sri Harold's voice on the video say, "We finally have a home."
I was stunned. I quickly found an Eckankar Study Materials catalog and showed her pictures of all the ECK Masters.
Immediately she pointed to the ECK Master Fubbi Quantz and said, "That's the white bird who taught me to fly!" Then she pointed to Lai Tsi and said, "And that's his daddy!"
My three-year-old daughter had been having dream experiences with the Temple of ECK and the ECK Masters Fubbi Quantz and Lai Tsi! The ECK Masters were teaching her how to get out of the physical body and "fly"in the inner worlds, where she had visited the Temple of ECK.
When she said she wanted to go home, she meant she wanted to return to this beautiful Golden Wisdom Temple where she was learning more about herself as Soul.
Both my daughter and I had been given a great gift. What a wonderful confirmation that the ECK teachings and the ECK Masters are real!
