I was in the grocery store, minding my own business, and all of a sudden I heard this person talk. I looked, and there was a woman beside me. She was talking away, but she was looking at the vegetables.
This was interesting. So I looked at her and said, “Did you say something?”
She realized she had been talking to herself, and she got very apologetic. She said, “Excuse me. I just forgot myself.”
I said, “That’s OK, we all do that.” If we’re honest, most of us will fess up. Sometimes our lips move, sometimes they don’t, but we’re talking in there.
I enjoy people. I realize that when I’m talking with them, the ECK, the Holy Spirit, is touching them in some way. Whatever way that is is fine. I don’t stand there and say, “Hey, it’s time for you to be in Eckankar.”
People are of all kinds. This is a world where God has put a bunch of Souls together, just casually strewn them about and said, Let’s see if they can walk with each other, bump into each other, fight each other, whatever they want to do.
We’re always shifting gears.
