My wife, Lorry, and I are blessed to live in the subtropics of Australia. A national park borders the northern and half of the eastern boundary of our property. Many a day as we wander around our acreage, I silently thank Spirit for the gift. I ask my inner spiritual guide, the Mahanta, to show me how to use this gift to serve life in the best possible way.

One day an initiate [member of Eckankar] in Texas realized that he really didn’t know much about divine love. So in his contemplation he asked the Mahanta, this inner side of myself, “Show me divine love.”

I love animals, and many years ago I was open to a new kind of love relationship in my life. Personal issues were overwhelming me. I wanted spiritual growth, but it appeared that all I was getting was physical drama and emotional pain.

As a columnist for Eckankar’s “Animals Are Soul” blog, I had the opportunity to be interviewed for an “Animal Writes” podcast on the Pet Life Radio network. It was delightful to talk with the podcast’s host, Tim Link, and his animal-loving audience. To listen to the podcast, click on any of the links at the end of this article.

I became acquainted with my life companion, Rosi, during a teacup hour with ECKists, members of Eckankar, in Germany. She had recently adopted a former street dog from Hungary.
