As I consider the challenging times we are facing, I realize that they are precisely why we practice: so that in the midst of their appearances and uncertainties we remind ourselves of the truth that Spirit is the one certainty, the one Power and Presence that there is. We practice so that in those moments when the “known” evades us, we have unshakable faith in the Unknown and that from It new possibilities are birthed.
And that takes me directly to our traditional October Friendship Month and this month’s theme, “Celebrating the Power of Friendship.” Although we are not currently meeting in person, there is no distance between souls and the bond of friendship we share as a global spiritual community remains unbroken. I invite you to join us each week this month as we honor this truth principle.
The October 11, 2020 topic is The Healing Power of Love. When Jesus encourages us to “Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you,” the ego can become ruffled and righteous, perhaps even more so during these polarized times when societal division prevails. Today we will explore how we may apply the heart’s healing power in the state of consciousness the Great Lover of humankind describes.
