Those Wonderful ECK Masters

A Man Recognizes a Lifetime of Divine Guidance through a Forgotten Childhood Memory


After reading the book Those Wonderful ECK Masters by Harold Klemp, I wondered about all the times in my life when I might have been guided by the ECK Masters. Did I always recognize their help in my life? Was there a particular ECK Master who had helped me more than the others?

I did a spiritual exercise and asked the Mahanta to show me the spiritual guidance I'd received from the ECK Masters over the years.

As I sat in contemplation, I remembered an experience from my childhood that I hadn't thought about in over forty years.

It was a warm summer night, and I was playing with a friend who lived across the street from me.

I was just five years old.

We were in her father's car. It was an older vehicle, with bench seats. We were using the seats like a small trampoline, jumping up and down while holding onto the steering wheel.

After a while, I got tired of jumping and got down on the floor of the car to see what I could find. I reached under the seat and pulled out a small-caliber revolver.

I was thrilled. The gun looked just like one of my toys, only it was a little bit larger and heavier.

Pointing the gun around the car, I decided to try it out. I began to squeeze the trigger and could see the hammer going back.

Suddenly, a deep, resonant voice commanded, "Put it down!"

I was surprised and quickly put the gun down on the floor.

My friend ran into the house and then returned with her father, who was frightened and upset. Apparently he had put the gun in his car to protect himself as he carried money from his workplace to the bank. Clearly he had never intended for children to find it. He scolded us and took the gun away.

I had completely forgotten about this experience until now.

As I came out of contemplation, I suddenly recognized that commanding voice. It was the voice of Yaubl Sacabi, an ECK Master who had served as the Mahanta, the Living ECK Master in ancient Greece several thousand years ago.

I realized I'd heard that same voice throughout my life. It had helped me through many crises and difficult situations long before I became a member of Eckankar.

Now I had the answers to my questions.

The ECK Masters have helped me all along. I now know these wonderful beings have always been there for me. They guide and protect me as I learn to become a greater Co-worker with the Mahanta, with all of life, and with God.
