Sunday Topics for October

Theme: LIVING IN ABUNDANCE
Abundance is not the money you have in your bank account. It is your connection to each breath. It is the delight with which you savor each unique moment. It is knowing yourself as presence, the power that creates and moves worlds. It is your open heart. It is the freshness of each morning unencumbered by memory or false hope.

October 1    PLANTING FROM LACK TO ABUNDANCE
Try to get what you want, and it’s already far away. Be what you want, know it in your heart, and it’s already yours. The rest is details. The rest, you never really wanted anyway. From lack to abundance, in a heartbeat.

October 8    PLANTING HOW TO HAVE AN ABUNDANT LIFE
True abundance is the overwhelming bliss of giving without expectation, loving without need, opening up to adventures you never thought possible.
It is feeling deeply alive, connected, and at Home, no matter what the circumstances, however hard the challenges.

October 15    PLANTING ABUNDANCE IS YOURS
What you truly seek is seeking you as much as you are seeking it, for you are only looking in to a mirror. You seek your own presence and you were never divided from it. As you find it, you are found, As you know it, you are known. Abundance is yours, effortlessly, then.

October 22    PLANTING LIFE; THE PRICE OF ADMISSION
When you will taste all of life, the dark and the light, all of life will surge through you. You will touch others and be touched in return. You will dance and sing and crumble in despair. You will weep and laugh and fall into the Mystery. And in the end, you will cry out: “I have lived, I have lived!”

October 29    PLANTING WHAT GIFTS WILL YOU CONTRIBUTE TO LIFE?
Imagine the gifts you have yet to bring to humanity. What is the gift you will bring them? Feel the connectedness of life and ask yourself, “What shall I add to this amazing sacred continuum with how I live today?” Be mindful. You make a difference.

Sunday Topics for November

Theme: LIVING IN GRATITUDE
“Gratitude is one of the chief graces of human existence and is crowned in heaven with a consciousness of Unity.” Ernest Holmes
This month we will explore the attitude of gratitude and how it transforms our lives.

November 5    THE POWER OF GRATITUDE
“Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, and confusion to clarity. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow.” Melody Beattie Gloriji will offer her depth and wisdom on this powerful spiritual practice.

November 12    TO BLESS THE SPACE BETWEEN US
“Each life is clothed in raiment of spirit that secretly links it to everything else. This shy inner light is what enables us to recognize and receive our very presence as a blessing.” John O’Donohue Our times are desperate for meaning and blessing. A blessing can be like the discovery of a fresh well. It would be lovely if we could rediscover our power to bless what is and also each other.

November 19    IN ALL THINGS GIVE THANKS
The Bible tells us to practice the art of “giving thanks” in the midst of whatever life gives us. We then shift into a receptive mode and can receive the gift of the moment. In Psalms it says, “A grateful heart doeth good like a medicine.” Let’s check it out.

November 26    HOW THEN SHALL WE LIVE?
When we return to this essential question and consult our heart we discover a calling that is both ancient and eternal. Let us revisit this intimate response from our soul and inquire into the many facets of our discovery. We ultimately are taken into the grateful heart.
