Cow Paths of the Mind

Three hundred years ago, there was a little calf on its way home. It meandered through the forest, making a trail as it went. The next day, along came a dog. The dog smelled the cow's tracks and followed them. A few days later, along came a bellwether. The male sheep led the flock along the trail made by the calf and the dog. Now there were more tracks through the forest that led to some home.

After a couple of years, men started to track along this path. They bitterly cursed the crookedness of it, but they followed it anyway. Time went on, years passed, and eventually this animal trail became a country road. After more years, it became a city thoroughfare; and finally, after more years, it became the main street of a metropolis. It was still crooked. You had to travel three miles to advance one mile. All the same, the people drove down this crooked street by the thousands, by the hundreds of thousands, day after day. They cursed it and yet they followed this path that was originally made centuries ago by the calf.

In ECK, we understand that the mind forms grooves and runs in a rut. We have habits that we pick up as children. These habits carry into the teen years and gradually harden and solidify as we grow older. These habits form attitudes which often express themselves in anger, vanity, lust, greed, and attachment.

The only thing that is greater than mind is Soul. It alone has the power to nudge mind out of the rut. The path of ECKANKAR makes us aware of Soul. It is not the only path to God, but it is the most direct one.
