Present Moment, Miraculous Moment – September 16, 2018

Each of us is a divine time traveler. Just as seasons change, so do we experience inner seasonal changes as we move through our life’s journey measured by this thing called “time.” One human measurement of time is referred to as past, present, and future, whereas Spirit’s measurement is timeless time. Our September theme, “The Perfection in This Very Moment,” embraces both, as you will see each week when we delve into the importance of being intimate and honest during our moment-by-moment inner and outer journey.

The topic on September 16, 2018, was Present Moment, Miraculous Moment. To be awake in the present moment is to consciously realize the wonder of being alive, the miraculous in all that it means to be a spiritual being having a human experience. Can there be a greater miracle than to live from a state of consciousness that recognizes the essence of Spirit in all that exists—from the humble blade of grass to the human being capable of enlightenment?

Today, we’ll amplify our wattage!

So how about it—let’s bend a knee of unconditional gratitude to our past and to ourselves in the Now moment of our lives. We deserve it!

The Pathway to Grace – August 26, 2018

The theme this month is The Pathway to Presence. Now in case you paused at the word “presence,” let me explain my deliberate choice of that word. When we’re present to the Presence, it expresses through us as self-empowerment, clarity, enlightening-up, and grace—which we’ll walk through together each week on the pathway to a deeper connection to Spirit and Self.

The topic on August 26, 2018, was The Pathway to Grace. There are many gifts on our path, and Spirit’s Grace is chief among them. It’s not difficult to look back over our lives and realize that something bigger than ourselves was in charge. That “something” is Spirit’s Grace, which frequently shows up as synchronicity. Let us gently and gratefully step on the pathway to Grace and realize the limitless affection of our Creator Source.

The Pathway to Enlightening-Up – August 19, 2018

The theme this month is The Pathway to Presence. Now in case you paused at the word “presence,” let me explain my deliberate choice of that word. When we’re present to the Presence, it expresses through us as self-empowerment, clarity, enlightening-up, and grace—which we’ll walk through together each week on the pathway to a deeper connection to Spirit and Self.

The topic on August 19, 2018, was The Pathway to Enlightening-Up. In one of his last sermons, Dr. Ernest Holmes said, “I do not even take myself seriously, but I take what I am doing seriously.” If we’re honest, most of us will admit that at times we also take ourselves too seriously. So I suggest practicing a new commandment: Thou shalt lighten up. Then we can enlighten-up through a lighter heart and spirit.

The topic on August 12, 2018, was The Pathway to Clarity. We’re all inundated with the constant chatter of the outside world, not to mention our own inner chatterbox! When combined, we often habitually turn to our self-soothing mechanisms. The ultimate soother, however, is our own inner clarity which restores even-mindedness to our being. Let’s walk the path of clarity of consciousness.

The Pathway to Self-Empowerment – August 5, 2018

The theme this month is The Pathway to Presence. Now in case you paused at the word “presence,” let me explain my deliberate choice of that word. When we’re present to the Presence, it expresses through us as self-empowerment, clarity, enlightening-up, and grace—which we’ll walk through together each week on the pathway to a deeper connection to Spirit and Self.

Today’s news and social media amplify the importance of self-empowerment as a means for remaining faithful to the principles of universal truth, love, peace, and our connection to Spirit. Was it not Jesus’s sense of self-empowerment founded in his unbroken connection to God that fueled his mission regardless of life’s unavoidable setbacks and disappointments?

Freedom from Ego’s Control – July 29, 2018

The ultimate freedom is the courage to be our authentic Self, so as we explore July’s theme, The True Meaning of Freedom, may we each discover and embrace ways for a new, free way of living and being in the world.

The topic on July 29, 2018, was Freedom from Ego’s Control. Lying beneath our need to control is fear. The truth is, we don’t try to control due to self-centeredness but rather because of the ego’s fear of change or loss. We cling to control as though it were a life-saving raft in the middle of the ocean. Instead, let us hold our hearts heavenward and ride in the direction Spirit wants to guide us!

Freedom from Minding the Business of Others – July 22, 2018

The ultimate freedom is the courage to be our authentic Self, so as we explore July’s theme, The True Meaning of Freedom, may we each discover and embrace ways for a new, free way of living and being in the world.

The topic on July 22, 2018, was Freedom from Minding the Business of Others. David Richo so aptly put it, we’re all members of the “CIA: Critic, Interpreter and Advisor.” When we worship at the altar of our opinions, we are honoring a false god. Imagine the mind-space we’d free up by letting go of this mental habit! Dropping our cherished views of others from our repertory will cause us to become much more loving, respectful, and happy beings!

Freedom from Self-Ambushing Mind Chatter – July 15, 2018

The ultimate freedom is the courage to be our authentic Self, so as we explore July’s theme, The True Meaning of Freedom, may we each discover and embrace ways for a new, free way of living and being in the world.

The topic on July 15, 2018, was Freedom from Self-Ambushing Mind Chatter. Sometimes it’s harder to see what’s good about us than what is bad, especially when the mind launches into a self-critical cycle. The truth is, Spirit’s nexus of Heaven and Earth contributes to the ever-evolving person we are, which is to say that we are divine and human, and can respect both. Self-acceptance quiets mind chatter, humbly honoring all aspects of who we are.
