New book starting soon, Strays by Jeanne Webster


Laid off from her first job as a staff writer for an Atlanta newspaper and stuck in a dysfunctional relationship, Jane retreats to a cabin in the Smokey Mountains to demand guidance from a so-far silent God. When she accidentally falls and hits her head, she acquires a seventh sense that allows her to understand the language of animals and plants. Her divine guidance comes in the form of an abandoned stray dog and a cast of unusual characters who describe their purpose here on earth through enchanting and profound stories. With the animals and plants insights leading her, Jane finds enlightenment, authenticity, personal empowerment, and travels out of confusion and complexity into a world of simplicity and personal choice. As she recaptures her own true nature, she discovers that even the most lost can eventually find their way home. (From amazon.com)

Satya Cinema Circle

All are invited and welcome to a screening of 

Discover The Gift
It’s why we’re here

Discover The Gift is the remarkable feature-length documentary film created by award-winning filmmaker, Demian Lichtenstein, with his sister, Shajen Joy Aziz, that explores the basic but vital reality that there are Gifts in each person, and in all circumstances, that are simply awaiting discovery.

More than forty of today’s most influential transformational leaders–authors, educators, activists, artists, healers, philosophers, and icons–guide viewers on a sumptuous visual journey toward experiencing joy, power, fulfillment, increased self-esteem, freedom and unconditional love. Discover The Gift is at the same time a profoundly moving personal story, as siblings Lichtenstein and Aziz reveal their own struggles and triumph; their touchingly intimate narrative frames the message of the movie will resonate with audiences everywhere.

tsc70: What I Want ~ Rev.Lyle

I wanted to make today’s message relevant to the ceremony we just experienced.

In truth … today is not about “joining” … you are not now a member of some group with secret handshakes.

My love for you is not greater … or less, than it was 10 minutes ago.

and

You are not “saved”.

You were … Perfect / Whole / and Complete yesterday, and you are right now too. Truth is … your Soul doesn’t need saving.

What happened today … and not just for those who were up here a moment ago … but for all of us …

 

Is a realization of the theme for this month.

“LOVE IS THE KEY – TO THE LOCK OF LIFE”

On days like today … those observing – and – those participating … were watching Life unfold in a unique way.

Like a … flower unfolding.

Beautiful for the observer … and beautiful and enlightening and enriching for the flower.

 

You stepped up here being one thing … you experienced a ceremony … and went back to your seat slightly different.

You observing … had thoughts and ideas of what today was going to be … you witnessed something … got new information … maybe something shifted. And now you are something slightly different than when you came in here this morning.

 

AND … what is this … change that is going on.

 

It is … Life … it is Nature … it is Love … it is God expressing … as You.

 

It is the vibration of Love that creates and manifests in our world. It is the key to the lock of life.

 

Today was a day for stating …

What I Want

And make no mistake … those of you sitting were doing the same thing.

Think about it. You make that choice every moment of your life.

So ……….. what do you want.?

 

Maybe … I want to be part of something that gives me joy.

I want to grow

I want to learn

I want to understand

I want change and transformation in my life

I want to be where I am supported

 

I want to wake up … and know … really know … that I am Loved … unconditionally.

 

I want to know … really know … that I am a Loving Vibrational Spiritual Human Being.

 

Earlier … I said Love is the Key … what I should have said is … YOU are the key.

 

And you didn’t get the key handed to you today. You have always had it … within. Everyone has the key.

You are the key.

 

Now … I love ceremony and ritual.

I believe there natural barriers we set up, for a variety of reasons. To separate us from something or from goals within our own lifetime.

And sometimes we need a push … or acknowledgement in order to move forward.

Birthdays … I’m 13, and a teenager now. I’m 21 – an adult.

Graduations … from high school. You are 18 and have been through basic training, and you are now ready to go out in the world. You either force your way out or get thrown out. You now have a new set of responsibilities.

Weddings – you 2 are now 1. Set a goal and move forward.

Spiritual Center Membership … what’s next???

 

You somehow have given yourself permission to move forward ……. CONGRATULATIONS.

 

You have always been Love expressing … except now you are consciously aware you are expressing.

 

So … be the key, and open a new door. Life is waiting.

 

Life is going to happen anyway. And sometimes it hits us over the head again and again until we get the message.

So … why not act with intention … with purpose … and with Love. Why not?

 

These new members are not magically transformed …? Unless you feel transformed … anyone? It happens.

 

It is a process … it is awareness and consciousness.

You will not move forward unless you first have the realization and awareness that you desire to – Be – somewhere else.

I will not attempt to stop being rude … if I am not aware that I ever am rude. See what I mean.?

 

So … one way to move yourself in a direction … or even better, to move the universe in your direction … is through conscious thought.

I want to share a little something with you I recently discovered … but there are many ways to learn … and grow … and manifest … a transformation in your life.

This is just what appeared as I was preparing for todays talk.

It is called a Rampage. I got it from Ester Hicks … from Abraham.

It is about setting a new pathway to what you want. About staying focused and creating momentum in your life.

If you stay focused on a thought for 17 seconds enough energy is created to attract a vibrational match out in the universe.

Another 17 seconds and you have created a point of attraction strong enough for a match to occur automatically.

Another 17 seconds and momentum is created.

Another 17 seconds and it becomes self sustaining.

A total of 68 seconds.

 

Now it is important to be clear and not in crisis mode. Fear or anger can derail any momentum.

So, it really must become a daily practice … living consciously … because we encounter anger and fear and doubt almost daily – don’t we.?

 

And it is more important to know the feeling (the why) than just an object. It is more important to know why you want the relationship .. instead of just trying to create a relationship.

Why … it is comfortable and safe and I like those feelings.

I don’t like being alone … switch that to “I like the feeling of having someone close by” You can get more detailed later.

I Love the feeling of being in Love.

Get the idea?

 

I was going to do this as a group … so I tried it out on Claire (my wife) first. Didn’t go so well.

We started with something like …”I am a powerful…”

No Wait … that’s not true, I don’t always feel powerful.

Ok … I like feeling powerful …? Ok.

Restart … “I am safe” … No Wait … safe is nice but I am not always there

 

Anyway … I decided it might be best if just share my own thoughts … for me. And you can follow along and get the idea …. Ok?

So here is a Rampage I wrote for me … revolving around … knowing my source.

 

READ CARDS – START TIMER

 

I think what we forget sometimes, is that this is not a quick fix program … here at Satya.

This is not a religion, it is a Spiritual Center, where you make your own decisions and choices.

It is a way of life … a new way of living. An every day conscious choice … understanding God and The Law and Yourself.

 

You are the key to the lock of life

 

Tell God … Tell yourself … what you want.

The essence of the universe is Good, and so are you.

 

And so the lesson begins.

tsc69: The Law of Intention ~ Rev. Ali

Love and the Law of Intention

 

The Law of Intention and Desire ~ notes from Seven Spiritual Laws of Success by Depak Chopra

 

This law is based on fact that energy and information exists everywhere in nature.

 

There is nothing but energy and information at the level at the quantum field – the level of pure consciousness, or pure potentiality.

 

The field is influenced by intention and desire.

 

A flower, rainbow, a tree, a blade of grass, a human body when broken down to their essential components, are energy and information – the whole universe in it’s essential nature is the movement of energy and information.

 

Deepak Chopra says, “The only difference between a tree and a human, is the difference between the energy and the informational content in that energy at the level of the quantum field.

On the material level, both you and the tree are made up of the same recycled elements. Mostly carbon, hydrogen, oxygen, nitrogen, and the other elements in minute amounts.”

 

We are made up of the same stuff – constantly exchanging carbon and oxygen with each other.

 

We are different at the quantum level, energy and information.

 

Humans have a nervous system that is capable of becoming aware of the energy and information content of the localized field that give rise to our physical body.

 

We experience this quantum field subjectively as our own thoughts, feelings, emotions, desires, memories, instincts, drives, and beliefs.

 

And experience it objectively as the physical body.

 

It’s all the same stuff – I am that – you are that – we are that – there is only that.

 

You are like a wave, a wiggle, a convolution, a whirlpool…

 

“You are a localized disturbance in the larger quantum field – the universe is your extended body.” Deepak

 

We as humans, are aware of the information and energy of the quantum field – and we are able to consciously change the informational content that give rise to your body.

 

And to the world around you – manifest things in it.

 

Conscious change comes about through our the two qualities of consciousness, attention and intention.

 

Attention energizes – Intention transforms.

 

Energy flows where your attention goes…

 

Intention triggers transformation of energy and information.

 

Intention is the real power behind desire – it is actually desire without attachment to the outcome.

 

The quality of intention on the object of attention will orchestrate an infinity of space/time events to bring about the outcome intended.

 

Intention of the fertile ground of attention has infinite organizing power.

 

Every manifest thing demonstrates this infinite organizing power – our cells – all nature.

 

As humans we can command the infinite organizing power through intent.

 

Intent is not fixed or locked – it is flexible.

 

As long as you don’t violate the other law of nature, through your intent, you can literally command the laws of nature to fill your dreams and desires.

 

“You can literally put the cosmic computer with it’s infinite organizing power to work for you, the only caution is that you use your intent for the benefit all humankind.” DP

 

Being Love in action.

 

That happens spontaneously when you are in spiritual alignment.

 

Intention lays the groundwork for the effortless, spontaneous, frictionless flow of pure potentiality seeking expression from the unmanifest to the manifest.

 

The premise of New Thought, is that when you can think a new thought and you can sustain it long enough mentally and emotionally, you will create a new experience in your life.

 

When you can think a new thought and sustain it long enough with positive emotion, you can create a new experience in your life.

 

What goes before or behind the Law of Attraction or the Law of Intention.

 

Four things we need to understand first – by Rev. Jean Sweet:

 

The strength of your desire to thrive and succeed – is paramount to your success. How strong is your desire? Send a clear, consistent message to the Universe.

 

The right use of will. Not willpower. The impulse to live, it kept you growing up, moving forward. The right use of will is to follow your inner guidance to sharing your gifts with the world. “Not my will, but Thy will.” “Use me.” To focus our intention.

 

The ability to achieve unbiased clarity. You can, to go into the interior landscape of your mind. To be clear, and see, and know the truth. You will see the thoughts and emotions that no longer serve you. Take a snapshot of your mind and your emotions. Where does your mind go? What do you lie to yourself about? We are good at self deception. Pure honesty with yourself. It’s a process and a practice. Pay attention to your thinking. Feeling is the fuel that propels thought to manifestation.

 

Your ability to control fear. If anything knocks you off your rocker, it’s fear. Fear undermines your success. False Evidence Appearing Real – Forgetting Everything is All Right.

 

Anticipation – the seeking mode – we see it in animals, the hunt not the catch – intense interest – curiosity, dopamine producing – the brain moves into an alpha state, calm meditative state.

 

Leaves us with a more coherent and orderly brain waves.

 

Thoughts – is an actual physical something – it seems to manifest as both electrical and magnetic energy and produces an order stream of photons, visible and measurable.

 

Reality isn’t’ solid or stable

 

We are continuously sharing information back and forth between everything in our environment.

 

Energy is constantly flowing though us – we are like an antenna receiver.

 

Transmitting and Receiving Thought Energy

 

Let’s play a little bit with this – experiment to see how much information is flowing through this room:

 

Close your eyes ~ become still

 

I am going to transmit a thought and you are going to receive it.

 

Synchronize our brainwaves.

 

Prepare yourself to receive – imagine yourself receiving – reach out and pull this information from me.

 

In this envelope I have an image and a word.

 

Don’t over analyze, just allow the first image, word, feeling, idea to expand within you. The first thought…

 

The Institute of HearthMath find that studies have shown that the receiver feels the intuitive ectro-magnetic in both heart and brain. The heart, then the brain. The heart has a larger antenna for “reading the field.” Entrainment – a cross linking.

 

Satya News – The Law of Intention

 

February 13, 2014
“You can search throughout the entire universe for someone who is more deserving of your love and affection than you are yourself, and that person is not to be found anywhere. You, yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection.”

The Buddha

tsc68: Authentic Power ~ Rev. Ali

Authentic Power

 

The old kind of power – the ability to manipulate and control – now produces only violence and destruction.

 

“This is a real surprise, because the old power enabled us and our ancestors to survive. Like good medicine suddenly gone bad, it is now poison. We used to take it to stay alive. Now we need to avoid it to stay healthy. A new kind of power – authentic power – has become the new good medicine, and we need it to become healthy, nurturing, and whole.”

Gary Zukav

 

“Creating authentic power is a process, not an event. It is the purpose of your life and the opportunity of your interactions. Authentic power is a journey, not a destination. It is a journey that few have taken before and that all of us are now required to complete as humanity transits from a five-sensory species that evolved by surviving into a multi-sensory species that evolves by growing spiritually.”

Gary Zukav

 

Where We’ve Been – Where We’re Going – and – How to Get There

 

The Journey of Fear to Faith and Love

 

Evolutionary Transformation ~ Multi-sensory Beings

 

We are in the midst of the greatest evolutionary transformation in human history.

 

We are in new evolutionary territory – We have crossed a threshold – we are here.

 

The threshold is an expansion of human perception, beyond the 5 senses.

 

Five senses + mind, thoughts

 

The intellect is no longer the chairman of the board, it is an employee – it becomes a tool in service to the heart, the soul

 

Spiritually evolving – developing our intuition – intuitive faculty

 

We are beginning to see ourselves as more than we thought we were.

 

We are beginning to see our world as more than we thought it was.

 

What is the something more? It is your soul.

 

The something more is the part of you that longs for harmony, and cooperation, and sharing, and reverence for life.

 

As you align yourself with your soul, you create a new kind of power – authentic power – the alignment of your personality with your soul.

 

The hugh evolutionary transformation that is occurring, will not make anyone more patient, more caring, more appreciative, less angry, less judgmental, less resentful – it makes us more aware.

 

The question then becomes, “What are we going to do with our expanded awareness?”

 

The pursuit of external power now produces only violence and destruction, what used to be good medicine, has now become toxic.

 

As a 5 sensory species, we needed external power to evolve by surviving.

 

As multi-sensory species, we evolve by growing spiritually.

 

The means of our spiritual growth is by the creation of authentic power.

 

The creation of authentic power requires choice.

 

Fear and Love

 

It is simple to understand – you need to distinguish within yourself, the difference between fear and love – and choose love.

 

Most people would probably agree with that.

 

But how do you choose love in the face of:

 

When you are angry?

Jealous?

When you are caught up in addictive behaviors?

When you are caught up in your mind, believing the terrifying thoughts you are telling yourself about the world?

 

How do you choose love over fear when your magnetic pull of your need to be “right” and to dominate another person – to win the power struggle, is so strong, that you can’t think of anything else? That is the time to create authentic power.

 

Every moment is the time to choose between love and fear.

 

Especially when you are in the magnetic field of fear – anger, jealousy, vengefulness, feeling superior, feeling entitled, feeling inferior, and wanting to please, these are the times, that you can STOP, if you have the presence of awareness.

 

Look inside yourself, not to look at the people around you, who you think are causing your anger, or your jealousy…

 

But look at them as triggers that have activated something within you.

 

The old way of looking at power requires that you change the trigger. You change the other.

 

That will get you nowhere.

 

Because, what got activated, what got triggered within you, is still intact and will get triggered again.

 

You will always have the choice to try and change them – or change yourself.

 

You can try and manipulate – to see things your way – that is the pursuit of external power.

 

But if you look within to see what got activated in you, and change it – then you are developing mastery in your life.

 

You shift your position in the world – from that of a victim – to that of a creator!

 

In Closing

 

“When you create authentic power you determine what is healthy for you and what is not; what is worthy of your interest and what is not. You decide which of your sensations, thoughts, and intentions originate in love and which originate in fear. You become an authority in your life, and your life becomes a continual meditation. Every experience offers you an opportunity to create authentic power or pursue external power.

 

The journey to authentic power is the journey that you were born to take. Only you can decide when to begin it, and only you can do the work to complete it, but it is not a journey that you can take alone.” Gary Zukav

 

Live joyfully wherever you are at this moment on the journey

All are invited and welcome to a screening of 

The Blue Butterfly

The true-life quest of a terminally-ill ten-year-old boy who longs to capture the most beautiful butterfly on the planet comes to life on the screen in a touching drama directed by Léa Pool and starring Academy Award-winner William Hurt. In order to appreciate life to its fullest, an ageing entomologist learns that sometimes all you have to do is come out of your cocoon. When the young boy’s mother convinces the renowned insect-expert to accompany her son on the journey of a lifetime, the courage that the terminally-ill child shows in realizing his dream inspires a man who has lived his entire life in a lab to get outside, connect with his fellow man, and experience the wonder of nature firsthand. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

tsc67:The Love of Your Life ~ Rev.Ali

 

The Love of Your Life

“If you want to see the love of your life, look in the mirror.”

You are the love of your life – when no one else is there, who is?

Marriage with the self – is most important. Self love.

 

Self Compassion

 

Michelle Morris Spieker – The Cherished Self

 

“Roles in society are expanding more and more. We strive to accomplish, manage, organize, direct, and star — all in an attempt to make our lives richer, fuller, more meaningful. Yet as we look outward for fulfillment, we are depleting the essential source of nourishment to the soul — the self.

Unfortunately, many of us are busy doing things mostly for others, and as a result, we tend to neglect ourselves. Some people might say it’s selfish to do nice things for yourself. But what’s actually dangerous is giving so much to others that we deplete ourselves.

When we slow down and make giving to ourselves a high priority, we are cherishing ourselves. Soon we begin to have a glow about us. We start to have more energy. And we make healthier choices in all areas of our life. When we address our inner needs and nurture our authentic selves, all areas of our lives improve.

The key to cherishing yourself is recognizing that you are valuable, lovable and definitely worth being cherished. Once you are ready to make this decision for yourself, you will discover an inner confidence that was trapped just behind your fears.

Be aware that there is a distinction between wanting to cherish yourself and actually fully accepting that you are worth being cherished. When you accept in your heart that you are worth cherishing, from that moment forward your life is enhanced.”

How to move from wanting to practice self love and cherishing – to feeling that you are worthy of being cherished – only when you love yourself, are you able to fully love another.

 

How to practice self-love

Incorporate self-love into your daily life.

Self-love is about taking responsibility for your own needs.

It looks at how you can think more loving thoughts, connect more with your feelings and take loving action.

Mentally – what are the most reoccurring thoughts you have about yourself?

  • Emotionally – do you give yourself permission to feel all your feelings?
  • Physically – how do you care for your physical body?
  • Nutritionally – do you nourish yourself with healthy food that you love?

 

“Honor the physical temple that houses you by eating healthfully, exercising, listening to your body’s needs, and treating it with dignity and love.”

Dr. Wayne Dyer

 

  • Spiritually – do you feel a sense of connection to something greater?
  • Financially – how do you feel about money?
  • Energetically – do you give yourself permission to energize yourself through where you go, what you do, and who you do it with?

 

Practice Presence

 

Awaken to how love wants to express through you

listen to your heart

 

Become present to yourself – honor your self

 

Listen

 

Be still with other people – sense the field of attention that flows out toward them. Listen, and while you’re listening sense yourself as the awareness, the Presence.

 

“In the egoic state, love gets confused with form, and so you think your love is in this form, in this other person. You don’t realize that true love is the recognition of the formless in the other – which is the recognition of yourself in the other.” Eckhart Tolle

 

Become a teacher for your self, by listening to yourself – by questioning your thoughts and beliefs

 

“The teacher you need is the person you’re living with.” BK

 

Practice Positivity

 

Thoughts

 

Words

 

Practice Happiness

Be genuinely happy for others

Celebrate others accomplishments

Practice Patience

 

Be patient with yourself

 

Be patient with others

 

Be patient with life in general

 

Practice Loving Kindness 

 Self compassion ~ be kind to yourself

 

Motivate yourself rather than criticize ~ inner coach rather than inner critic

 

Move away from living in “victim consciousness.”

“Everything happens for me, not to me.”

 

Become a teacher for your self, by listening to yourself – by questioning your thoughts and beliefs

 

Conscious loving ~ participate in the self givingness of spirit

 

Love is an evolving practice, not a destination

 

Love is the answer to every challenge ~ It can melt fears, dissolve self-imposed limitations, amplify courage and clarify focus.

 

Love heals – healing occurs when we take ourselves gently into our own hearts and accept the totality of our lives. We harden our hearts when we fail to forgive ourselves of our own pain. In this sense, one can only heal one’s self; one can never truly be healed by another.

 

Loving Kindness Meditation

– Metta –

building a field of loving care

silence between each sentence.

Buddhist meditation

 

Sit comfortable – relax and be at ease in your body – be at ease in your mind – sit comfortably.

 

Open up to sharing loving care, kindness, connection – to ourselves.

 

Think of one thing you like about yourself, a particular quality or attribute – a part of yourself you have respect for – or something you have done, you have been generous, honorable.

 

If you cannot find anything – then focus you mind on your wish to be happy – which is beautiful – all beings simply want to be happy…

 

Find a few phrases that express what you wish most deeply for yourself.

 

The traditional phrases are:

 

May I be free from danger or may I live in safety – inner and outer – lost in mind – or outer.

 

May I be happy – may I be healthy – may I live with ease.

 

Family, livelihood – may I live with ease and joy.

 

May I live in safety – may I be happy – may I be healthy – may I live with ease.

 

Connect with each phrase in a natural ease way.

 

Now extend your loving kindness to someone who has taken care of us – been good to us – helped us – or inspired us to be loving, compassionate, to be aware.

 

Bring an image of them to mind – quietly say there name – and get a feeling of them.

 

Remember the good that they have done for you – or their good qualities.

 

Extend loving kindness to them through the phrases – the intentions:

 

May you live in safety – may you be happy – may you be healthy – may you live with ease.

 

Open your heart to extend loving kindness to a good friend – bring them here now.

 

Wish for them what you have wished for yourself – this person also wants to be happy.

 

Open your heart to extend loving kindness to a neutral – bring them here now.

 

Wish for them what you have wished for yourself – this person also wants to be happy.

 

May you live in safety – may you be happy – may you be healthy – may you live with ease.

 

Open your heart to extend loving kindness to a challenging person – bring them here now into your field of loving care.

 

Wish for them what you have wished for yourself – this person also wants to be happy.

 

May you live in safety – may you be happy – may you be healthy – may you live with ease.

 

See yourself with them – on an equal footing – and say, “May we live in safety – may we be happy – may we be healthy – may we live with ease.

 

All opposites – men/women – enlightened/unenlightened – those being born/those dying – whatever comes to your mind.

 

Send love to all beings without exception – without distinction – without separation -open up to the boundlessness of life – the depth of your love and say,

 

May all beings, may we live in safety – may we all be happy – may we all be healthy and well – may we all live in ease.

 

Gently open your eyes…

 

IN CLOSING

 

Live in a field of unconditional love.

 

May you live a whole hearted life!

 

“Seeking love keeps you from the awareness that you already have it – that you are it.”

Byron Katie
