ECKANKAR: A Long-ago Lesson, a Wasp, and Spiritual Freedom

by Becca Anderson


How many times have I left a lifetime with the view of freedom in sight, but out of reach? How many yearnings went unfulfilled? How long have I waited to find my way through?

Opening the drapes in the living room this morning, I saw the body shape of a wasp through the curtain. I went to get a jar and an envelope to help capture it and take it outside. Carefully turning the fabric, I looked on the back of the curtain, but it wasn’t there. I had seen it through the front, and now I could see it through the lining on the back of the curtain, but I couldn’t get to it. It had somehow crawled between the 2 layers and was between the curtain liner and the drapery. And it wasn’t moving. Trapped by its own curious mistake, it left that life. I wondered if it understood its own situation, searching for nourishment and the freedom to fly.

Certainly, I have been a bug, a bird, and many other beings in the past. All of those situations are part of what formed me in this lifetime.

Ever feel like you’re working on the layers of your life, but still, there’s a veil between you and higher truth?

After I saw the wasp, I asked it what it had to teach me. At the moment I asked the question, I realized this time I wanted more consciousness about what I was doing, what was around me, and to have more inner creativity about solving my problems.

Eckankar, the Path of Spiritual Freedom, is a study program that opened my spiritual eyes and ears. It helped me discover my inner guidance, and brought me to a rich awakening of higher forms of creativity, deeper resources of love, and healing for body, mind, and spirit. To start your own study of the ECK teachings, check out a Light and Sound Service or a Sound of Soul Event near you. (At the event )You are invited to lovingly chant HU (like “hue”… in a long breath), an ancient name for the Divine. No matter what religion or belief system you use, the singing of HU will enhance it. HU has a very high spiritual vibration. Ride the spark of adventure into your own potential as a spiritual being.

That’s how it worked for me. Now I better understand the spiritual laws of life that affect me every day. Less and less do I get trapped by my own curious mistakes or misunderstandings. I know how to get help for the journey, so I can fly in spiritual freedom without leaving this life because I'm learning to love here and now.

Becca Anderson is a Speech Pathologist, a songwriter, and an avid student of spiritual truth, and the Light and Sound of God. After trying many paths, she settled on Eckankar because it answered her deepest questions.
