“Service starts at home.
"At the very least, make some day special for you, a family member, or the whole family. Celebrate a special day, like a birthday, an anniversary, or a just-because day. Make plans. Do something new or some favorite seldom-time-for activity like going to a movie, an ice-cream shop, or maybe for a walk in the park.
"Hey, wait a minute! How are these things spiritual service?
"If such things can reawaken you to the sheer joy of being alive–wonderfully, vibrantly, gratefully alive–then they are spiritual. Plan for more like moments and days.”
–Harold Klemp, The Living Word, Book 4, p.144

Electric Light Parade
December 5, 2020
Every December, the APS Electric Light Parade brings holiday magic to families, neighborhoods and local businesses in Phoenix AZ. More than 100,000 spectators gather every year to watch over 60 lighted holiday entries including floats, marching bands, performance groups and community groups pass through the downtown area to the joy of children and adults.
We have been blessed to participate in the APS Electric Light Parade in previous seasons. This year, we will be updating the float, creating new costumes for the marchers, and bringing renewed participation to our parade presence. Look for us this December (2020) as marchers and our float share HU, a love song to God. See you at the parade!

Beautify Day – A New ECK Tradition
Beautify Day is an ECK tradition the Mahanta, The Living ECK Master brought forward in the Mystic World, September 2019. Together or tucked away in our respective homes, we can actively beautify our contemplation area, our roadside, or other worthy project.
Twice a year, typically in May and September, you are invited to celebrate Beautify Day in a way suited to you and the Mahanta.
“Do this with all your love and attention. Tip: Practice the Master’s presence.
“Openhearted celebration of the ECK traditions creates beacons of Light and Sound all over the globe and affects the consciousness of the world. Do this in the name of the SUGMAD, the ECK, and the Mahanta.
“And with gratitude for the gift of life!”
– Mystic World, September 2019
