The master teacher, Jesus of Nazareth, continues to influence our consciousness as do so many other teachers, past and present. I once heard the word humble defined as “willing to learn”. Our community consists of seekers, learners, and teachers. We share our wisdom and experience with each other briefly after the inspiring Sunday talk. In circle we are willing to be seen and heard in shared sacred space. We are modern mystics navigating through life with our humanity and divinity and recognize the necessity of connection, community, the village. We are learning that all we need to be is ourselves, our divinely determined selves– free will, shadow, artistry and all.
May the world retrieve its purpose, the divinity of its mission, to reflect and glorify Your love forever. Marianne Williamson.
Let discord of every name and nature be heard no more, and let the harmonious and true sense of Life and being take possession of human consciousness. Mary Baker Eddy
I am a radiating center of love. Rev. Winifred Wilkinson Hausmann.
Life is surrounding you with people and situations that stimulate growth….You only have to be willing to open your heart in the face of anything and everything, and permit the purification process to take place. Michael A. Singer
And then there is Beloved Rumi:
Not Intrigued With Evening — Rumi
What the material world values does
not shine the same in the truth of
the soul. You have been interested
in your shadow. Look instead directly
at the sun. what can we know by just
watching the time-and-space shapes of
each other? Someone half awake in the
night sees imaginary dangers; the
morning star rises; the horizon grows
defined; people become friends in a
moving caravan. Night birds my thing
daybreak a kind of darkness, because
that’s all they know. It’s a fortunate
bird who’s not intrigued with evening,
who flies in the sun we call Shams.
And then there is the being that ushered in Christ consciousness, completely changing our relationship to life, Jesus the carpenter and leader.
“A farmer went out to sow his seed. 4 As he was scattering the seed, some fell along the path, and the birds came and ate it up. 5 Some fell on rocky places, where it did not have much soil. It sprang up quickly, because the soil was shallow. 6 But when the sun came up, the plants were scorched, and they withered because they had no root. 7 Other seed fell among thorns, which grew up and choked the plants. 8 Still other seed fell on good soil, where it produced a crop—a hundred, sixty or thirty times what was sown. 9 Whoever has ears, let them hear.” Matthew 13, 4-9
So We craft our world by what we say. Tosha Silver
