The example of people who are living a deeply spiritual life, like Father Gregory Boyle, inspires us to be different. His example invites us to ask ourselves, “Why am I here? And what am I doing to be that?”
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.

Ernest Holmes tells us, “Freedom is the birthright of every living soul.” And yet, there are times when our childhood conditioning makes us feel less than free. When we become conscious of those particular beliefs, we can transform them into new beliefs that support us in living a full and rich life.
We view and experience life through the lens of our experiences, conditioning, beliefs, thoughts and feelings. As we embody an awareness of the I AM Presence within us, we see everything differently, we experience things differently and come to life differently. In turn, the world around us is transformed.
The heartfelt dreams and desires that we have are the call of the Universe within us to become more fully expressed. As we heed their call, we discover untapped parts of ourselves and bring them forth and our experience of life expands. What is calling to your heart?

Love is more than a feeling, it is a power that uplifts, heals and makes whole. Love creates unity and brotherhood and fosters the thriving of everything it touches. As we walk our spiritual path, we choose to express love because it is a reflection of who we are.

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.
