Re: What do you think, does Hu or Harold really protect?
I like all the pretty lights but I'm more of a Pegan type,
which is probably more true to form, as the Christians stole all the
"holidays" anyway after the fact. All the religious hype and church
songs, even in grocery stores was getting on my nerves, but I managed
to get through it all with some fun and friends.
It's an interesting form of "New Age" guilt or just plain puritain
religious guilt that somehow twists things up so much that someone
actually has to write a book on why bad things happen to good people,
even really good people. I'm sure there were probably a lot of tsunami
victims who were just wonderful. Karmic junk won't explain that one away.
I have had bad car accidents where I probably should have been killed.
But the truth is, if I look back on it, I could have helped myself get
killed by taking my hands off the steering wheel or making things
worse somehow. Actually, once I was about to be hit head on by a
driver trying to pass in the opposite direction. As I jerked to the
side of the road in an attempt to control the car, it kept going over
on two wheels, back and forth. The more I tried to control it, the
worse it got, til finally the thought occured to me to just let go of
the steering wheel, I kind of gave up. This caused the front wheels to
up and the car skidded through the grass and up a slight hill to a stop.
At the time, I was doing a lot of reading of other books, besides
eckankar and arguing with a family member about it a lot and was even
kind of mad at the eck master at the time for causing such a family
rift and all these closed minded people and that I had possibly been
duped into a cult. The only damage done, was that my lit cigarrette
was broken in half, hanging by a piece of paper and I was still
hanging onto it getting ready to take another drag. *G*
I certainly wasn't singing hu or pondering on blessed thoughts of the
eck master or mahanta!!! If anything, I just was in the moment more
intensely and directly and more open to what was happening. I have
also seen other trucks go through something similar, flip over and
literally go up in flames. I wonder if they were eckist? *g* Actually,
eckist or not, I certainly wouldn't want anyone to go through what I
I saw a program on TV about an attemnpt to assasinate Hitler that
didn't succeed, and he supposedly took this to mean that he was meant
to live and carry out his mission. Would they say that he was being
protected by the Mahanta? I'm sure they have some devious explanation
about karma or something, the double think, a ready explanation for
every event good or bad.
I'm glad your son made out OK. Oh "hu" has a lot of different
pronounciations and maybe AUM is better, or HUM or whatever. It gets
ridiculous after awhile.
Well Happy New Year!!! I've always liked New Years eve parties better,
just more fun, IMHO.

leaving, a guy came up from behind them and yelled something in
Italian. My son's buddy knows enough of the language to know the guy
wanted their wallets. This guy had a knife about 7 to 8 inches
long.... since my son has had nothing but a rotten vacation,
according to him ;-), his first thoughts were "Hell NO!" He then
noticed the guy was about to attack his buddy with the knife, so my
son kicked it out of this guys hand like it were a football. The
next thing he knew he was on top of the guy pounding his face. My
son's buddy who is about 6'4" just stood there in shock. Once he
realized my son was really knocking the hell out of their attacker, he
pulled my son off. Shortly after the would be attacker was removed
of his knife ;-), the Italian cops showed up and took

just imagine some eckist in the same situation Huing, and
trusting...... you know those stories you read in the Eck
Journals.... the ones where some big hand came down from the sky and
protected so and so from a terrible car wreck. Or how about the one
where a similar situation as my son's happened, and when the eckist
turned to respond to the would be attacker, a fearful look came over
the attackers eyes as if they had seen a ghost, then turned and ran
for the hills..... so what happened? Of course my son hasn't
believed in eckanpuke for years so he didn't have any of that special
protection, yet something kept him from having a worse outcome! And
what about those eckist that didn't get the protection promised by the
klumpster? Maybe it was just their karma, or some lame excuse the
org would spin????
