Loving greetings to you as we commemorate the significance of America’s freedom when on this very day in 1776 the Declaration of Independence was signed. May our hearts be filled with gratitude and joy as we acknowledge that each of us has been endowed by Spirit with all that is needed to contribute to the creation of a peace-filled, compassionate and enlightened society. And let us continue in a direction of worldwide healing as we include our entire global family in our daily prayers.
Throughout the events of the last year up to this current moment, we’ve been given many opportunities to think about our individual relationship to freedom and how we define and express it in our lives. And that is why this month’s theme is “The Spiritual Importance of Agreements,” during which we will focus on the timeless universal principles of individual freedom as described by Don Miguel Ruiz in his spiritual classic, The Four Agreements.
The July 25, 2021 topic is The Fourth Agreement: “Always Do Your Best.” Even with the best of intentions we may fall a little short in fulfilling our commitments and goals at the level we set for ourselves. This Sunday we will dive more deeply into the subtle aspects of what this agreement means relative to including self-compassion, patience, and never giving up on ourselves as we sincerely seek to fulfill our highest aspirations.
