With all the turmoil that is going on right now in our country, what do we do as people who are committed to living a spiritual life? Abraham Lincoln appealed to our better angels as a way forward. Martin Luther King reminded us that darkness cannot drive out darkness, that only light can do that. […]
What if all the drama and chaos that has been happening in our country is a call to be the change you wish to see in the world? What if it is an invitation to be love, care and understanding? What if we turned away from what we don’t want and instead created what we […]
As we step into the new year, it is filled with promise and potential and is ours for the making. We create the life of our heart-felt desires by listening within, setting the intention, deciding to act and releasing anything that is blocking the fruition of those dreams. Join us here in a three-part ritual […]
What are your heartfelt desires for our country as we move into the new year ahead? As we pray for their unfoldment and hold them as possible, we create a space in our consciousness and the collective consciousness for them to unfold into form.
When we treat others with love and care, we give expression to our spirit and to the Divine. In turn, we are all lifted and graced by the Sacred. When we see through the eyes of our spirit, rather than our ego, and acknowledge our shared humanity, we recognize that we are all deserving of […]
One of our greatest human needs is to feel connected to others. The holidays are normally filled with lots of opportunities to experience our connection with friends, family and loved ones, as well as with our family of humanity. How do we feel and experience that connection this year, while we refrain from our usual […]
Having a grateful heart makes us witness to the boundless abundance of good that is already at hand and the Infinite Potential of Universe that is simply awaiting our acceptance of it. Gratitude opens our hearts, connects us to life and opens us to the flow of Good.
We often forget is that we share common ground, even with our ‘enemies’. Jim Wallis tells us, “We can find common ground only by moving to higher ground.” Let’s find our way to what we share in common and let our conversation grow from there.
When we find ourselves in times of limbo and when the ground doesn’t feel secure beneath our feet, it is time to lean into our faith and Presence of the Infinite. In doing so, we discover peace and assurance and create an opening for Good to pour into our lives.
What if all the turmoil that we are experiencing right now is not the darkness of the tomb, but instead is the darkness of the womb? What if this is fertile ground for something new and greater to come forward into the world? You are being called.
Do you ever find it hard to be at peace with all that is going on in the world? Do you sometimes find it difficult to be the place where peace begins? We find Peace in the silence within us that is beyond opinion and judgement. From there, we can be the Peace we desire. […]
What if everything really is leading to good? What if, like the philosophy of Wabi Sabi, the cracks and broken parts, and the way we repair them, is part of what makes things richer and actually enables Greater Good to come into the world?
As we walk this spiritual path and live a spiritual life, we cannot separate out our spirituality from our work, our home life, raising our children or even politics. It is all a part of our spiritual path. We are being called to bring our spirituality to everything we do.
Holding ourselves and others in harsh judgment and condemnation separates us from our own inner peace, our sense of well-being and keeps us from bringing our best selves to life. When we forgive ourselves and others, when we make amends and clean up our wrong-doings, we are able to move back into alignment our own […]
Our consciousness; our beliefs, attitudes and focus create an avenue for the Infinite to express in this world. We are being called to embody a greater realization that Love, Peace, Order, Harmony and Good, are present right in the midst of what seems to not be working. In doing so we call it forward.
SINCE YOU ASKED… Do you ever wonder what Centers for Spiritual Living teaches about why we are having this physical experience and what the purpose is for our being here?

Blessings fill our lives. But, the only way that we experience them is by being present in the moment and paying attention. In turn, we feel gratitude. And the real gift of gratitude is that the more grateful you are, the more present you become.
As spiritual beings we have a need to feel our spirit and to live from our spirit. Walking a spiritual path enables us to do just that. In turn, it changes us, it changes our lives and it changes the world around us.
The Creative Intelligence of the Universe is always at our disposal and seeking to express through us, as creative solutions, answers to our problems and new ways to do things. We must get our fear, doubt and negative thinking out of the way in order to access this Creative Intelligence.
KINDNESS AS A SPIRITUAL PRACTICE During these stressful times, while people are short tempered and we might feel a little off our game, it is necessary to practice kindness even more than usual. When we are compassionate, kind and loving with ourselves and others life is easier for all of us.
As things have been dialed back and businesses re-closed due to the Covid 19 spike and the resulting restrictions we are now living under, it is easy to feel frustrated, bored and even a little depressed. We are being invited to step out of our box and do something new, learn something new and tap […]
We are being called to create in Mind the world that we want to see emerge from the turmoil that is going on in our world at the moment. Living in the expectancy of good opens us to the Realm of Possibility and creates an avenue for the good to become manifest in the world.
