Loving greetings to you all and may you and your dear ones have a beautiful Thanksgiving. As the once familiar ground beneath our lives appears to be shifting, let us keep before us the unshakable truth of Spirit’s love and laws governing the universe. Trusting these immutable truths gives rise to our inherent bravery, even as we may feel we’re being cast into an alternate reality. And this is why throughout November our theme will be “Braving the Wilderness,” based on Brené Brown’s book of the same title.
Together we will look deeply into our own spirits and make friends with our inner wilderness, with the hurt, anxiety, uncertainty and more that endeavor to overtake our deeper knowing. This is why we practice, so that in the midst of the storm we know ourselves to be victorious practitioners.
The November 29, 2020 topic is Living in the Paradox of Strong Yet Tender. “To make ‘true belonging’ a daily practice in our lives,” writes Brené Brown, “we’re going to need a strong back and a soft front in order to experience true belonging.” It takes a strong spiritual backbone and a tender heart to express true belongingness. Today we will explore the blessings of living with a passionately giving and open heart, both to ourselves and all beings.
