When we come together as a spiritual family, what a joy it is to observe the effects our collective friendship has upon one another. As our tradition of celebrating Friendship Month continues, I want to express my gratitude for how the friendship we share blesses my life, and all the more so because it is a bond we share in the Spirit.
Our theme for the month of October is The Spiritual Art of Success, based on Jack Canfield’s empowering book, The Success Principles: How to Get from Where You Are to Where You Want to Be.
The topic on October 21, 2018, was The Naked Truth about Success. Many of us have been conditioned by society to measure success by outer material possessions. We can even manipulate our spiritual practice into one of spiritual materialism by believing that demonstrating outer riches is a validation of being “spiritually evolved.” Authentic success, however, is found in the qualities of inner contentment, compassion, and communion with Spirit.
