Love


Love matters

We all have one heartAnd one heart needs anotherLove, love is all that mattersLove is all that matters, it matters after all.~ Diana Ross, Love is all that Matters The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well.~ Ralph Waldo Emerson What if Christ is a name for the immense spaciousness […]


Make a Joyful Noise

“By following through on conscious choices, we can rewire our responses toward love, trust, and patience. Neuroscience calls this ‘neuroplasticity.’” ~Richard Rohr, The Universal Christ   I watched a video by Jane Goodall this morning on YouTube called Mother Earth (https://youtu.be/48mxaQtbUdU) in which she spoke about the interdependency of all life on the planet. She spoke of how we, as a species have single-handedly in the last 100 years (my words) have managed to cause […]


Everything is a Choice and We Each Have the Freedom to Choose.

“Freedom is a condition of the Soul. As we turn to the kingdom of our inner Self, we find the reign of divine Power in the outer world. As we seek peace within, we find harmony without.” ~Joel Goldsmith, The Art of Meditation   Freedom is something we all search for. Freedom of religion, freedom to be who we’d like to be, freedom from abuse, freedom to choose certain things in our life, freedom to […]


Raise Your Voice to Freedom!

“Raise a glass to freedom something they can never take away.” ~ Lin Manuel Miranda, Hamilton, the Musical “To this day I believe we are here on earth to live, grow, and do what we can to make this world a better place for all people to enjoy freedom.” ~ Rosa Parks “It was during those long and lonely years that my hunger for the freedom of my people became a hunger for the freedom […]


I Burn for your Peace.

This morning was the World Healing Meditation. I wish to thank everyone that was with us either in person or consciousness. Thank You! Just after I got off the call, I read my daily reading from Fr. Richard Rohr, and had to share this quote he used from Augustine of Hippo, from his work, “Confessions” Late have I loved you, O Beauty ever ancient, ever new, late have I loved you! You were within me, […]


Can Peace be Attained?

I feel obliged to speak a little about Peace as it pertains to today’s world. So much of the world is polarized right now by the political climate that exists, not only in this country, but around the world. So much so, that there no longer seems to be any common ground from which we can begin to build a lasting peace. Yes, all that seems crazy, but I believe it is marking a move […]


Disappointment

It’s something we all feel from time to time. Mostly we feel it from expectations we have made with another. It could be related to a business relationship, a personal relationship or a combination of both. We all handle it in different ways. In different times of our lives, we may have handled it differently also.  Many get angry, and feel violated, used, or even betrayed by a friend or colleague. We may seek restitution, […]


shared from Rev. Michelle’s Friday Morning Musing

From This Thing Called You, by Ernest Holmes pg. 60 Everything you have ever thought, said, done, seen, learned or experience, has left an imprint upon your subconscious mind. This subconscious also contains memory images of your family life, your ancestral background and the sum total of what the whole world has thought or believed.These memories are not dead things. Quite the reverse, they are active. From The Principles of Healing, by H.B. Jeffrey pg. […]


Our only enemy is ourself!

“Before making peace, war is necessary, and that war must be made with our self. Our worst enemy is our self: our faults, our weaknesses, our limitations. And our mind is such a traitor! What does it? It covers our faults even from our own eyes, and points out to us the reason for all our difficulties: others! So it constantly deludes us, keeping us unaware of the real enemy, and pushes us towards those […]


Moving beyond fear!

What the soul sees and has experienced, that it knows; the rest is appearance, prejudice and opinion.” ― Sri Aurobindo “What do you think about that?”someone said to me, referencing something they had heard. “I have no opinion, because I have no first hand knowledge of what happened,” says I. Why do people expect you to jump into a conversation you have no first hand experience about? I have found over the years, at least […]


Our Spiritual Nature

Behind your image, below your words, above your thoughts, the silence of another world waits. A world lives within you. No one else can bring you news of this inner world. ~ Anam Ċara: A Book of Celtic Wisdom   Our spiritual nature is an inextricable part of us. Yet, while we do not wear it on our sleeve, it does live within us and there is evidence of it all around us. Nature is […]


What Lies Within You?

Behind your image, below your words, above your thoughts, the silence of another world waits. A world lives within you. No one else can bring you news of this inner world.—John O’Donahue, Anam Cara: A Book of Celtic Wisdom Ralph Waldo Emerson said, “what lies outside you matters little to what lies within you.” There are few in the world that really get this. Said differently in all the religious faiths, by primarily the outliers […]
