Let All Hell Break Loose

Our Spiritual Nature, like Mother Nature, is all about poise and balance. It expresses Itself in subtle ways all the time, calling to us to make a small shift in our perception of life here, or a slight adjustment in our self-expression there, in order to bring about more poise and balance in our day-to-day life.

It is when the need for those subtle corrections doesn’t get our attention, because they are small enough for us to overlook or ignore them, that life gets our attention in a big way. Maybe just a few things get shaken up, or maybe all hell breaks loose!

When the inner power of our spirit and the outer expression of our self in the world are not balanced because we’re not living authentically; when we’ve “put a lid” on the self we desire to express because we fear the reaction of others, pressure builds up in the creative energies within us and “something’s gotta give!”

We are not responsible for how others react to us, but we are responsible for authentically expressing our self as lovingly and peacefully as we can. If all hell breaks loose when we do, then we can let it happen with peaceful curiosity as to what’s going to happen next, trusting that something good is breaking through. (Read more…)

Temporary Insanity

We are all equipped with Spiritual GPS, our very own God Positioning System, that won’t let us go wrong too long without beeping at us in some way. We can ignore Its signals, but why ignore them when God always has our best interest in Mind? Whether our Spiritual Guidance feels like the subtle energy of intuition or more like the Universe is hitting us over the head with a two-by-four, as we learn to trust It and choose to follow It, we find that our thoughts are more clear, our conversations are more positive, and we’re happy in each moment—right where er are, for seemingly no reason at all, even before we know what’s up ahead.

It isn’t always easy to trust our self and our inner feelings because most of us are in the habit of asking everyone else their opinion about what we should and shouldn’t do with our life. We look for approval first. Then we act. But nobody else, no matter how smart or accomplished they seem to be in their life, knows our reason for being, why we have become a wave in the Great Ocean of Life. But we can discover the answer within us because the Ocean of Life, that is causing us to be, knows why we’re here. Deep within us our unchangeable, always reliable GPS is ready to guide us to our bliss. (Read more…)

Objects in the Mirror by Gloria Phillips

We were blessed this Sunday by a special talk given by Gloria Phillips, Science of Mind Practitioner Emeritus, long-time LEC member. She spoke with openness and sincerity about her own spiritual journey into New Thought as she searched for meaning in her life after the death of her husband. Finding herself lost and alone, she’d asked the question, “Who am I and why am I here?” She invited all of us to ask of our self that same question. She also talked about quantum entanglement and the correlation between scientific theory and the Oneness of the Spiritual Universe. She gifted each of us with a mirror so that as we gazed at our own reflection while feeling our Oneness with Spirit, we could take a deeper look at our self beyond the physical and see the inner beauty of our true spiritual nature.

I Remember It Like It Was Yesterday

Good memories can add to our happiness today if we don’t let them replace today with yesterday! We have nothing to lose by letting go of what was because every bit of the good that was is Present in What Is right now. Life is a forward-moving, ever-expanding creation of good. If we’re looking at today through yesterday’s eyes we’re not able to see, appreciate, or experience the newness the present moment has to offer because we’re busy comparing it in our mind to our past experiences.

We see what we expect to see because we create what we see with our expectations. The old adage you reap what sow is a metaphor for the Law of Creation or the Law of Attraction. Our thoughts are like seeds that carry a vibration of creation within them that, like the seed of a flower or the acorn of an oak tree, carries the creative imprint of what they are going to become. We experience the results of our thoughts as the experiences of our life. Every thought-seed (whether we want it to or not) is going to bear fruit somewhere, at sometime. Whatever we plant most of, i.e., whatever thoughts we entertain most in our mind and nurture through our focus on them, become the strongest and grow the hardiest in our life. That is why it is important for us to focus only on what we want if we want to experience only what we want!

We don’t need to go back in time to live in the past. If we are holding onto yesterday’s thoughts, emotions, and feelings right now (because we just don’t feel like letting them go yet) they remain alive in our mind. And, they will continue to recreate yesterday again and again until we let them go. Unless we plant new thoughts today, the old ones will continue to grow stronger through repetition, and we will keep experiencing the same old crop in our life day after day. Read more…

It’s About Time!

Does it seem to you that time is flying by these days? It is quite possible that time is actually moving faster. Today more and more individuals are hearing and answering the call of their Inner Being. More and more people are turning within to the peace and stillness of Spirit that is also alive with the highest creative energy of all: Love. And, more and more men, women, and even children are practicing spirituality in their day-to-day lives.

Such spiritual practice appears to be raising human consciousness on earth to a higher vibration that is actually moving at a faster rate. This increased creative vibration means that, if we are willing, it doesn’t need to take as long for the healing of our body, to attract loving relationships, to feel the joy of mental and emotional freedom, and to experience peace in our mind, home, workplace, and every place on earth.

If you would like to learn how to rise to the Spiritual Occasion of this human experience by letting go of the excess weight of guilt, blame, resentment, and judgment that may be holding you down, I invite you to listen to this podcast. And, join us each Sunday, 11am at The Life Enrichment Center. “Lives transformed here!”

Apples and Oranges

Comparing our self to others is like comparing apples to oranges. We are all the same, and yet different. There is One Universal Life expressing everywhere throughout the diversity of Creation. It’s not possible for Life to express diversity through sameness, or to bring about uniqueness through uniformity. So why do we choose to judge, compare, and compete with one another?

It’s been said that judgment is one of the ego’s tools to foster separation thru comparison. We forget that we can’t see anything “out there” without using our own eyes, or interpret what see (for better or worse) without using our own mind and the opinions we have stored there. Comparisons cause us to live our life in our head, rather than to experience it with our heart.

If you would like free yourself from the unhappy, unhealthy, limiting thoughts that a mindset of separation through comparison brings about, and if you would like to learn how to consciously create the life of joy, health, and abundant good you desire, I invite you to listen to this podcast, and then share it with family and friends. And, most of all, I would like to invite you to join us at The Life Enrichment Center. “Lives are transformed here.”
