Let It All Go – June 3, 2018

Throughout the month of June we have much to look forward to as together we celebrate the Spirit and take a deeply honest look into how we are applying spiritual principle in the present moment of our lives because, as our theme reveals, There’s No Future in the Past.

The topic on June 3, 2018, was Let It All Go. Our culture has a healthy tradition of Spring cleaning and releasing stuff we’ve accumulated and no longer need. Imagine how freeing it would be to apply this skillful practice to the accumulation of our inner clutter such as worry, fear, lack, attitudes and habits that no longer serve us. In this week’s talk, we’ll learn how to break the grip of procrastination and stagnation and just let it all go!

Working together, they form the perfect inner workout routine! It is my joy to invite you to join us each week throughout May when our theme will be Building Your Spiritual Muscles: Courage, Compassion, and Commitment.

The topic on May 27, 2018, was Genuine Self-Knowing VS False Complaining. “This above all else,” says Polonius in Hamlet, “to thine own self be true.” Being true to yourself begins with knowing who you are in the Mind of Spirit. It is about accepting yourself—your strengths, passions, and compassionately acknowledging the areas in which you have yet to grow. What an exhilarating way to live, evolve, and serve in the world free of false complaints.

No One Gives to Us But Ourselves – May 20, 2018

Working together, they form the perfect inner workout routine! It is my joy to invite you to join us each week throughout May when our theme will be Building Your Spiritual Muscles: Courage, Compassion, and Commitment.

The topic on May 20, 2018, was No One Gives to Us But Ourselves. This is the wisdom of self-responsibility, of no escape, no bypassing or denial, which takes tremendous courage and spiritual maturity. When we practice this form of self-reliance, we become empowered and take spiritual freedom into our own hands, even as we surrender the ego to Spirit through our spiritual practices.

It is my joy to invite you to join us each week throughout May when our theme will be Building Your Spiritual Muscles: Courage, Compassion, and Commitment.

The renowned Zen monk and teacher, Suzuki Roshi reminds us, “In the beginner’s mind there are many possibilities, but in the expert’s there are few.” A “beginner” is one who remains open, teachable, and humble no matter how many years they have been on the spiritual path or what their spiritual credentials may be. Let’s learn to keep an open, flexible, and receptive mind to Spirit’s infinite possibilities.

Where There Is Darkness and Sadness, Let Me Sow Light and Joy – April 29, 2018

Loving greetings and joyous Easter and Spring Equinox wishes to you and your dear ones. It’s interesting to note that Easter is metaphysically a time of a resurrection in consciousness, and the Spring Equinox is a time of renewal. Both inspire us to review our intentions and reset our course towards that which gladdens our hearts and serves our global family.

As I inwardly prayed for April’s theme to be revealed, St. Francis’s beautiful prayer came into my awareness along with these words: I Am Your Instrument. I invite you to join us each week as together we practice being Spirit’s instruments of blessing in our world.

The topic on April 29, 2018, was Where There Is Darkness and Sadness, Let Me Sow Light and Joy. How can we be instruments of light and joy? The truth is, we already are! All we have to do is discover and activate it within ourselves and watch how it illumines our path. This is what St. Francis realized and called forth from within himself. This week we will practice together and tap into our innate luminosity of Light and Joy and let it radiate out from us upon one another, and upon our world.

Where There Is Doubt, Let Me Sow Faith; Where There is Despair, Let Me Sow Hope – April 22, 2018

The topic on April 22, 2018, was Where There Is Doubt, Let Me Sow Faith; Where There is Despair, Let Me Sow Hope. When we sow faith while standing in the face of doubt, despair takes care of itself. Today we will examine the attitudes, the mindsets and heartsets that nurture our faith, our trust in the Goodness of the Universe that mothers each and every one of us. We never stand alone. We are never abandoned because Spirit’s grace is our constant companion. Our work is to reach deeply within through our spiritual practices and touch this grace that energizes our faith.

Where There Is Injury, Let Me Sow Pardon – April 15, 2018

Loving greetings and joyous Easter and Spring Equinox wishes to you and your dear ones. It’s interesting to note that Easter is metaphysically a time of a resurrection in consciousness, and the Spring Equinox is a time of renewal.

The topic on April 15, 2018, was Where There Is Injury Let Me Sow Pardon. It is a natural response to seek relief for inner or outer injury, whether it’s our own or that of others. “Pardon,” as used by St. Francis, represents healing and recovery. We aren’t meant to deny or bypass the wounds of injury, but to tenderly hold them in prayer without shame or blame, all the while knowing they have come forth because it’s their time of healing, knowing all the while that we possess the innate capacity to skillfully work them in our spiritual practices.

Where There is Hatred, Let Me Sow Love – April 8, 2018

Loving greetings and joyous Easter and Spring Equinox wishes to you and your dear ones.

The topic on April 8, 2018, was Where There Is Hatred, Let Me Sow Love. As Dr. Holmes tells us in the Science of Mind textbook, “Love is the grandest healing and drawing power on Earth. It is the very reason for our being.” Love is the very energy of our existence, for each of us has emerged out of Spirit’s Divine Love as St. Francis next prayed, “Where there is hatred let me sow love.” And this begins with us, with our relationship with ourselves, which informs our relationship with others and our world. Are you ready to embrace it all with Love?

These individuals weren’t born saints—they are everyday people like you and me! This week we’ll explore how each of us may tap into our own reservoir of inner peace and spread it in our world.
