- I have been pondering "Aware" or "Awareness" which for most means:
having or showing realization, perception, or knowledge, cognizant,
conscious, sensible, Alive, Awake.
Now when you put an Eckankar spin on this, "they" claim to have
ownership of awareness. If you are not an Eckists, then you are
psychic, which is of the lower worlds and is negative! LOL
In Eckankar, your initiation determines your level of awareness.
Though I have seen many new members more aware / awake than many
How do you define awareness? Is it that natural gift we all are
born with, some being more aware than others of this gift? Or do
you need to pay a membership price to gain it?
I'm going to share an experience I had last night while at the mall
with my family. I want to say though that this experience is just
an example of the MANY similar experiences I have had before, during
and after Eckankar. YEP, you read that correctly.... even after
My husband was shopping for a Christmas gift for me, while my 5 year
old daughter and I were finishing a snack at the food court in the
mall. My other 2 daughters were also off shopping. This was for
me, a very nice quiet moment! I enjoy taking those quiet moments,
even if it is not sooo quiet in my surroundings. I am someone that
can block out the noise and commotion going on around me.
So, my little one is sitting there eating her snack, as I was
enjoying a peaceful moment... I was in a place where my mind was
completely still, and at that moment I saw my husband in my
spiritual eye... he was walking up from behind me so very quietly.
I smiled to myself because it felt very comforting and loving. At
that very momnet (this experience lasted about 2 seconds) I felt my
husband gently put his hands on my shoulders, and kiss the top of my
head. My 5 year old daughter looked up surprised and
laughed "DADDY"! I felt a very warm wave of energy pass between my
husband and I, and I quietly said to him, "I could scense you were
near!" Such a little thing..... but yet a very important spiritual
experience I wanted to share!
You see, Eckankar and it's Masters can not remove initiations, or
spiritual awareness that each individual soul has discovered for
themselves. No matter what, these experiences are real, and are
very positive examples of what LOVE is. There is no "POWER"
involved. It is pure expression of soul awareness!
No Eckankar Mythical Master or Mahanta can stand in my way of
awareness, or my journey toward that which created us! And I don't
have to pay one single dime for that! My family and living life,
provides me with more loving, spiritual experiences than any fake
God man ever could!
