I am a member of the ECK clergy and was leading an ECK Light and Sound Service, an Eckankar event for the community. During the service I told a brief story about how I had noticed a small, lively, happy black ant crawling across the page of an ECK book I was reading from at home. At that time I smiled and thought to myself, “There are over a trillion plus ants in the world, and this ant—in front of me—is probably the only one exposed to the writings of ECK.”

Maybe a little like meeting God, through feather, fur, or fluttery thing. To be judged not for words, but by the timbre of my voice. Not for ability, but by gentleness of my touch. And not for knowledge, but by the Light that shines from my eyes. To be loved for the nature of my heart.
