We respect all the ways there are to draw closer to Spirit, for even though there may appear to be great differences in the path, the destination is the same.

The Longing of the Soul

We are all on a soul's journey. So much of our growth happens in our heads, we forget that we need to take action as well---it all works together. Contributing to the world around us is the culmination of our growth.

3 key points:

The Invisible Mom

The universal creative force is as much feminine as it is masculine. It is accepting of any ideas we give it and it gives birth to them. We are created in the image and likeness of the divine, with the ability to interact with it and determine our life's course. Our choices build faith in something---possibility, opportunity, creativity---or in error beliefs of restriction and limitations.

Givers, Takers, and Matchers

Adam Grant, in his book Give and Take, describes three types of people---givers, takers, and matchers. He studied organizations, engineering firms, and hospitals to discover that the givers are both the most and least productive people. How can we create a world where more of the givers get to excel? We must recognize that givers are the most valuable people in any organization. We must create a culture where it's okay to ask for help. This changes everything, and allows the givers to help more.

Don't Stop Believing

New belief requires resilience. We have to decide whether we would rather be a victim or a creator of our lives. Do we want to suffer more, or do we want more joy?

It can become power to us only as we recognize It as Power. We cannot recognize that It is while we are believing that It is not. Our belief sets the limit to a Principle which of itself is without limit. It is ready to fill everything because It is infinite. So it is not a question of Its willingness nor Its ability---it is entirely a question of our receptivity. -- Dr. Ernest Holmes

The Infinite Self

Our evolution is never ending. We are always evolving and growing, on the journey. Dr. Holmes said, "There is something within us all which consistently pushes us forward, which demands continued progress."

Ask great questions. Because the Infinite answers! Why not ask, How can I see the divine in this? Can I claim this as a gift? "We're all a cell in that soul of the infinite," says Deepak Choprah. There is a divine realm and we can lift our vibration and interact with it.

Jesus, the Great Example

We celebrate Easter, Jesus the Christ's personification of the presence of God, his life of wisdom and integrity, his death and resurrection, and what it means for all of us. We have all experienced suffering because of what we believe. We all must die to our egoic or false selves. Our calling is to follow Jesus' example and learn to have the courage to love.

Our journey ultimately is not one of consumption. It is one of contribution. It is one of service, of love.

How to Be Empowered

Guest motivational speaker and entertainer Wayne Lee talks about how we can face a life challenge and, through the process, empower ourselves.

How can we be free? How can we empower ourselves? How can we let go of the stuff that stops us in our own mind? How can we become a better performer?

Fundamentally, how do we consciously create the life we desire?

We can ask ourselves two questions whenever we are going through such a life shift: What can we learn from this? What can we do about this?

The Power of Transformational Giving

Guest speaker Neil Williams describes how fulfilling it is to think about what would be most meaningful as a remembrance of our lives---how a gift from our estate can support our individual values and passions.

Our conscious participation in all our giving lifts our spirits, feeds our souls, and makes us happier and healthier people. When we leave a charitable gift in our will, we leave an expression of our spiritual nature, a natural extension of our place in our community.

We are Always Being Guided

We are always being guided. Even when it doesn't feel like it. The world is our classroom and other people are our assignments.

When we recognize our problem, condition, or error-belief, we can give it a name. This is the spiritual practice of labelling or noting. It can distance us from the experience. It can release it from being part of our false identity. It gives the mind something to do. It helps us to recognize our patterns. Eventually the experience being noted disappears.

We are the Dreamer that Dreams the Dream

We are responsible for what we see, because perspective is everything. Things are not what they are; they are what we think they are.

We are not responsible for what our eyes are seeing. We are responsible for how we perceive what they are seeing.

The circumstances of our lives have less to do with our happiness than the sense of control we feel over our lives. How we frame the circumstances of our lives is so important.
