Are you just a product of your environment?
Do you really have any control over what happens to you in your life?
Watch as Dr Petra and Rev Karen give us a brief summary of what the 4 stages of consciousness are and then dive deeper into the 1st stage of consciousness.
Unity does not require uniformity. The individualization of each person is an expression of the infinite creativity of Spirit.
When we see ourselves as inseparable from Spirit, we recognize we are also inseparable from other people. This Unity with Spirit and all people inspires us to recognize who they are and work together for the common good.
Having established multiplicity as the norm, this week we reinforce that diversity does not mean competition and does not have to result in hatred, violence or war.
“La Union hace la fuerza” (Unity makes strength) is the national motto in Belgium, Bolivia and Bulgaria. When we join together as unique individuals with a shared vision or values, we are much stronger together.
Doesn’t Oneness mean we are all alike?
This week we dive into the complexity of Oneness with the Creator is different from all of humanity being the same. We are inseparable from our fellow humans (and all of life) but we are different from one another by design.
Like the flowers, the birds, and all of nature, diversity is a natural expression of God.
The Zulu greeting “Sawubona” means “we see you.” We – me and all my ancestors see the core of who you are.
Recognizing our inseparable connection to each other requires me to be open to you being the unique person you are.
And if you respond “Sikhona”, it means you are willing to be authentic in sharing your true Self with others When we accept our connection in this life, we live in a way that honors the Truth in each of us.
The Hindu concept “namaste” and the African philosophy “ubuntu”, are guideposts for compassionate action.
Namaste is the recognition that each one of us is sourced from the same Divine spark of life. But sometimes, that still has us seeing each other as separate from one another.
Ubuntu reminds us that none of us exist without the other; our lives are interdependent in such a way that my life does not exist without you.
By incorporating “namaste” and “ubuntu”, we set the stage for a month-long exploration of how we are individual; how we are connected; and how we are inseparable from one another because we are inseparable from God.
Learn more about the value of seeing that we are from the same source and, also, the value of the philosophy that binds us together and reminds us – anything any one of us do, has an effect on everyone else.
What stories from the past do you continue to tell yourself over and over and over again, that continue to keep you stuck?
Maybe you see your dream job and think, “I am not capable or qualified enough for it.”, so you don’t apply.
Maybe you have let an old teacher trick you into thinking you’re bad with numbers, so you don’t try to manage your money.
Maybe you have been hurt in a relationship, so rather than try again, you say to yourself, “It’s not worth the pain.”
These are stories that keep you from seeing what is possible for yourself.
The soul is the seat of memory that already contains a record of everything that has ever happened in our lives. And these memories, as a whole, constitute the subjective narrative of your life.
But what if we intentionally decide and commit to changing that narrative?
Imagine being so bold as to create our lives from our connection to Spirit, rather than from our old worn-out stories?
Change your story, change your life.
Ernest Holmes said, “There is One Body of the Universe. Within this One Body is included all lesser bodies.”
We are all connected and when we individually raise our consciousness, we are able to raise the global consciousness.
And for my Manifest fans, Rev Karen shares how this popular Netflix series illustrates how truly connected we all are.
Science of Mind is a R-Evolutionary (Radical Evolutionary) teaching that positions us on the leading-edge of a global transformation.
And that extends to how we love as well but Revolutionary Love may not be what you think it is. There are three practices that must be done and come together all at once, in order to have Revolutionary Love, and these practices can only take place in the community.
Keep watching to find out how our community defines Revolutionary Love and the three acts that must align to support it.
Civil rights lawyer and author Michelle Alexander, says a true revolution of values is required in this country. Not just a political revolution, but, also, a moral and spiritual renewal, in order to have a more inclusive, compassionate, and equitable world. But no matter the political affiliation, sociological/cultural experiences, religious/spiritual path, everyone is an aspect of God, right?!
Imagine what kind of world we would live in if we embraced and communicated courageously, openly, and vulnerably about these things many of us avoid?
Wholly, Holy Uprising! Are you ready to join the revolution?
“I woke up this morning with my mind stayed on spirit!” Keeping our attention focused on our relationship with, and as, God throughout the day and throughout our lives transforms our experiences because our perspectives and perceptions of life are filtered through the lens of Truth, Love, and Oneness. It gives us the resilience and perseverance to meet whatever may come our way.
Seek first the Kin-dom (kinship, communion) of God and all things shall be added unto you. Stage 2 (by us) is an important part of our spiritual evolution, and it has its limitations.
When we free our mind of our “By-us bias” we move into stage 3 of spiritual development “through us.” So much more awaits us when we surrender and allow.
When we choose to follow our vision often times it requires us to transform. This uncomfortable yet necessary shift in our lives can often be our stumbling block.
Watch as Dr Petra helps us to avoid some of the pitfalls and gives us the inspiration to move forward.
What inspires you to change, stand up, or motivates you to move?
Rev Karen Fry shows us how to recognize our vision for a greater life and some of the steps we can start taking now to implement it.
