The Day the Lord has Made
SYNOPSIS: There is nothing we need to learn about our self-defeating habits, our potential best life, and our true holiness that our everyday experiences will not show us. Our work is to remember that everything that happens is there for a reason. What appears to get in our way, is the way!
FEATURED MUSICIAN: Gina Barber
TAKEAWAYS: This is the very moment, right now, which holds the power for raising our consciousness. Regardless of the situation, whether we initially perceive it as good or bad, we can choose to find the lesson in it for our growth. We simply need to remain conscious and observe how we are interpreting the experience. Is our interpretation an unconscious reaction based on past conditioning or are we allowing ourselves to respond consciously based on what we know to be true about ourselves and others. Every time we catch ourselves and diffuse the pain underlying our negative reactions, we heal ourselves a little more and lift our consciousness.
Most of us who consider ourselves spiritual seekers already know the great value of living in the present moment. We've read countless books and heard numerous speakers talk about the transforming power of mindfulness. Though we may not practice it perfectly, we can't say we don't know that daily quiet time, whether we call it a mediation practice or not, is the best remedy for our fears and anxieties, and the surest precursor of joy.
This Sunday I will explore what is possible for us when we use our present moment awareness to discover our life's highest curriculum. Using the scripture "This is the day the Lord has made, let us be glad and rejoice in it," I'll invite you to consider that everything that happens holds a clue to your healing and your greatest joy. Conscious Evolution requires that we pay close attention to each moment and each life event.
The music team will feature Gina Barber on guitar and vocals with support from Mark Soss's bass vocals. They will be backed up by Gwen Gathercoal on piano, Jim Turner on guitar, Pamela Van Kirk on Bass and Dagan Williamson on drums. I can't wait to hear what they have in store for us.
I hope you will spend this Sunday with us.
In loving service,
