Consider Liberated Pathways to a New Way of Being

Dr. David Ault Cycling round and round and getting nowhere. This is what life consists of for many in our world. There is a saying ‘if they knew better, they’d do better’ but I don’t find that to be an accurate sentiment. I believe many of us know better but our addictions to creature comforts and fear of change prevent us from embracing an alchemical transformation of self from something perceived to be limited and oppressed to someone liberated and powerful beyond measure. September’s theme is titled Consider This.  Each week you......

Dr. David Reminds Us Life Demands Transformation

Peace is felt in an atmosphere of surrender. An atmosphere of surrender is available through letting go of the conventional. Letting go the conventional requires the understanding that there are far more options available to consider than what you’ve seen modeled by others. The risk of being labeled foolish will actually nurture peace in your heart. Playing it safe will not. I realize that to be in integrity with the demands of transformation within myself, I must risk looking foolish as well as risk other’s judgments and the accompanying feelings of abandonment.......

Rev. Susan Zoller Invites You to Enter the Mandala

BY REV. SUSAN ZOLLER Growing up, spiritual understanding seemed much like entering a movie theater.  Walking in to view the film, a wall greeted you that blocked the light.  To be seated required a walk around either end of the wall.  The screen and seating were then visible. I was behind that wall, frustrated others were seated and seeing the film, not knowing how to enter and unable to see the show. Despite my desire, understanding God, by whatever name known, was something others could do.  For me, it remained elusive.  Something......

People do not seem to realize that their opinion of the world is also a confession of character.  ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson Our relationship with our world is the overriding template for our relationship with everything. A bold statement, yes, but when you earnestly combine the infallible workings of spiritual law to the way in which we each operate in life, then you can see the truth in Emerson’s words. The most powerful thing any of us can ever remember and then apply is the fact that it is never about anything......

With the worlds eyes on Maya, one could come across one breathless quote after another penned throughout her literary career. If you never read any of her six memoirs or spent time savoring the words of her poetry, you might fail to see the immense foundation of a life lived from unabated genius. Her New York Times obituary gives a provocative glimpse of the obvious successes and the blistering failures she seemingly embraced with equal fervor. If you did not read it, please do. She once wrote, “Nothing will work unless you......

The inhabitants of Troy tyrannized the ancient Greeks for many years. Fueled by an undeniable demand for independence, the Greeks staged an elaborate plan to win back their freedom. Many of them appeared to flee by sea, leaving behind a monument – a wooden horse of enormous proportion. Amused by the Greeks decision to run away, the soldiers of Troy boastfully claimed the horse as a victory trophy and, by trolley and rope, wheeled it into their cities heavily guarded compound. During the night, those who had appeared to leave by sea......

Minister's Message - March 5, 2014

“When it’s over, I want to say: all my life I was a bride married to amazement. I was the bridegroom, taking the world into my arms. When it is over, I don’t want to wonder if I have made of my life something particular, and real. I don’t want to find myself sighing and frightened, or full of argument. I don’t want to end up simply having visited this world.” – Mary Oliver Living large, behaving boldly – those are more than just motivational phrases reserved for some cheesy poster on......
