The Third Agreement: “Don’t Make Assumptions” – November 17, 2019

Joyous Thanksgiving wishes to you and your dear ones as you celebrate this beautiful season of gratitude. And to every member of our spiritual community, I want you to know how grateful I am that we are walking the path together in celebration of the Spirit, in a mutual commitment to opening our hearts and giving our “Yes” to Spirit’s limitless gifts of opportunities to grow, to be of loving, selfless service in the world.

Do join us during this special month when our theme will be, “The Spiritual Importance of Agreements,” which will focus on Don Miguel Ruiz’s classic, The Four Agreements, a book that emphasizes how our inner agreements form the spiritual foundation of our integrity with Spirit, ourselves, others, and all Life.

The topic on November 17, 2019, was The Third Agreement: “Don’t Make Assumptions.” The challenge with assumptions is that we sometimes mistake them for an intuitive hit, especially when our ego is invested in assumptions which can quickly morph into solid opinions. The first person we should check in with about our assumptions is our self, and then, with a clean intention, approach others for the sake of clarification and any necessary healing.

The Second Agreement: “Don’t Take Anything Personally” – November 10, 2019

Joyous Thanksgiving wishes to you and your dear ones as you celebrate this beautiful season of gratitude. And to every member of our spiritual community, I want you to know how grateful I am that we are walking the path together in celebration of the Spirit, in a mutual commitment to opening our hearts and giving our “Yes” to Spirit’s limitless gifts of opportunities to grow, to be of loving, selfless service in the world.

The topic on November 10, 2019, was The Second Agreement: “Don’t Take Anything Personally.” Whew, even this instruction can feel personal! The human ego, being what it is, has been programmed to take things personally. But this pattern isn’t etched in our consciousness, only our mind, which means that we can learn to become more spiritually mature and not be personally impacted by the dialogue we have with ourselves about ourselves, nor the words of others.

The First Agreement: “Be Impeccable with Your Word” – November 3, 2019

Joyous Thanksgiving wishes to you and your dear ones as you celebrate this beautiful season of gratitude. And to every member of our spiritual community, I want you to know how grateful I am that we are walking the path together in celebration of the Spirit, in a mutual commitment to opening our hearts and giving our “Yes” to Spirit’s limitless gifts of opportunities to grow, to be of loving, selfless service in the world.

Do join us during this special month when our theme will be, “The Spiritual Importance of Agreements,” which will focus on Don Miguel Ruiz’s classic, The Four Agreements, a book that emphasizes how our inner agreements form the spiritual foundation of our integrity with Spirit, ourselves, others, and all Life.

The topic on November 3, 2019, was The First Agreement: “Be Impeccable with Your Word.” Every day, whether it’s consciously or unconsciously, we make agreements with ourselves as our thought-energy takes the form of words, spoken or unspoken. Our word is the governing law of our life. Of course there are times when we want to take back our words, and we can, as we simultaneously learn to grow in being impeccable with their usage.

Awakening from Illusion – October 27, 2019

It was C.S. Lewis who wrote, “Friendship is not a reward for our discriminating and good taste in finding one another. It is the instrument by which God reveals to each of us the beauties of others.” And so from my heart to your own, I thank you for how you so generously demonstrate your inner beauty of heart and soul. As we share our October theme, “The Grace of True Friendship,”

The topic on October 27, 2019, was Awakening from Illusion. It’s been said that suffering occurs when the illusions we have about life clash with Reality. In fact, much of our spiritual practice is about evolving beyond the impact of the false agreements we have made with ourselves. How blessed we are to be part of a spiritual practice that returns us to our true Self, that places responsibility for our awakening right where it belongs: Ourselves.

Wealth: A Quality, Not a Quantity – October 20, 2019

It was C.S. Lewis who wrote, “Friendship is not a reward for our discriminating and good taste in finding one another. It is the instrument by which God reveals to each of us the beauties of others.” And so from my heart to your own, I thank you for how you so generously demonstrate your inner beauty of heart and soul. As we share our October theme, “The Grace of True Friendship,”

The topic on October 20, 2019, was Wealth: A Quality, Not a Quantity. The true measurement of wealth is not the size of our bank account, the car in our driveway, or the watch on our wrist. Authentic wealth is a state of consciousness, one of knowing Spirit is the source and substance of our supply, that love, kindness, gratitude and generosity are the authentic wealth of the heart and soul. Truly, an abundant life begins within, and then extends without.

Self-Confidence or Self-Doubt-the Choice Is Yours – October 13, 2019

It was C.S. Lewis who wrote, “Friendship is not a reward for our discriminating and good taste in finding one another. It is the instrument by which God reveals to each of us the beauties of others.” And so from my heart to your own, I thank you for how you so generously demonstrate your inner beauty of heart and soul. As we share our October theme, “The Grace of True Friendship,”

The topic on October 13, 2019, was Self-Confidence or Self-Doubt-the Choice Is Yours. The anatomy of doubt is fear, and fear is false evidence appearing real. We don’t have to fear the appearance of fear which, in fact, arises in the lives of even the most courageous and evolved individuals. Let us follow their example and choose to confidently apply our inner spiritual knowing that we are expressions of Spirit—perfect, whole, and complete—just as we are.

What Are You Conscious of? – October 6, 2019

It was C.S. Lewis who wrote, “Friendship is not a reward for our discriminating and good taste in finding one another. It is the instrument by which God reveals to each of us the beauties of others.” And so from my heart to your own, I thank you for how you so generously demonstrate your inner beauty of heart and soul. As we share our October theme, “The Grace of True Friendship,”

The topic on October 6, 2019, was What Are You Conscious of? Spiritual Mind Treatment is based on the principle that there is an intelligent, impersonal Universal Law governing the Universe. Each of us lives with the full support of this Law, which is founded in Spirit’s unconditional love. Today we will explore how the depth to which we are consciously present to each of life’s moments activates and fulfills this Law on our highest behalf.

Discernment and Discipline = Demonstration – September 29, 2019

As the Dalai Lama wisely reminds us, “Happiness is the highest form of health and is determined more by one’s state of mind than by external events.” There it is, plain and simple, leaving us no wiggle room for not taking responsibility for our individual happiness. There’s paradox present too, for even in the midst of some situational unhappiness, with a shift of the mind—without bypass or denial—we can restore our happiness. If you’re ready to find out how, listen each week as we explore our September theme, “Living from a Heart of Happiness.”

The topic on September 29, 2019, was Discernment and Discipline = Demonstration. The word “discipline” causes us to recoil a bit, and yet maintaining a disciplined mind is what keeps us on track by calling us back to a discerning, faith-filled state of consciousness that empowers the demonstrations for which we pray based upon our trust in the Universal Laws of Life. Let us come together in training our minds to remain focused on our Highest Good.

The Fusion of Expectation and Experience – September 22, 2019

As the Dalai Lama wisely reminds us, “Happiness is the highest form of health and is determined more by one’s state of mind than by external events.” There it is, plain and simple, leaving us no wiggle room for not taking responsibility for our individual happiness. There’s paradox present too, for even in the midst of some situational unhappiness, with a shift of the mind—without bypass or denial—we can restore our happiness. If you’re ready to find out how, listen each week as we explore our September theme, “Living from a Heart of Happiness.”

The topic on September 22, 2019, was The Fusion of Expectation and Experience. We affirm something and want to believe our expectation will be met and yet, if we are honest, we aren’t quite convinced of our worthiness to receive the good which we affirm. Or, we may expect the worst to happen and not want to believe in our belief. Join us Sunday and discover how to create a mental equivalent between expectation, experience and the fulfillment that awaits us.

Is it Time to Expand Your Horizons? – September 15, 2019

If you’re ready to find out how, listen each week as we explore our September theme, “Living from a Heart of Happiness.”

The topic on September 15, 2019, was Is it Time to Expand Your Horizons? The True Self simply will not let us remain static, falsely satisfied, or in denial of the truth that we have within us all we need to awaken into the fullest expression of our being. No matter at what level of consciousness we find ourselves, there remains inner horizons to explore, expand, and embody. Are you up for the adventure?
