May 06 Flexing Your Spiritual Muscles – Rev. Pam
First, we build and strengthen our spiritual muscles through focus, discipline, and conscious choice, and then we flex them as we stand before the mirror of circumstances that arise in all aspects of our lives. There’s no shortage of opportunities, so let’s explore how to demonstrate the greatest benefits from our spiritual practices.
May 13 Wise Are They Who Remain Teachable – Happy Mother’s Day! – Rev. Pam
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.
May 20 No One Gives to Us But Ourselves – Rev. Pam
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.
May 27 Genuine Self-Knowing VS False Complaining – Rev. Pam
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.
