Capturing the Spirit of Peace

Our brother and master teacher Jesus is often referred to as the “Prince of Peace.”  What would it take for us to capture the Spirit of Peace and embrace it as he did?  As we move closer to the celebration of both the birth of Jesus the Christ and the rebirth of the Christ within us, let us practice Peace in some real and tangible ways. As we do these things, we commit ourselves to Being the Peace and expanding the consciousness of Peace in the world.

A Pillar of Salt

The pillar of salt is a highly visual analogy and often takes the center stage in this biblical story from the book of Genesis (19:15-26). Lot’s wife turned into a pillar of salt because she looked back, longing for what had been rather than looking forward to what would be. She is a metaphor for our being stuck in the past and unable to move forward when change knocks upon our door.  

Living the Dream of Your Heart

At the heart of you lies a dream. It may be something you have always wanted to do, to be, to experience. Or it may be a dream of a world that aligns more closely with your understanding of Spirit. It may be a dream you suddenly heard calling to you just yesterday, or it may be a dream that has been softly calling and gently nudging you since you took your first breath.

A Re-Write Right Now

From the earliest cave paintings to the modern-day 3D movie and virtual reality programs, the ability to tell a story has been an integral part of the human experience. It allows us to share our perspectives and to gain a sense of who we are, who we have been, and who we would like to be. And, our stories can also be a source of limitation.

Climbing into the LAP of God

Ever feel the need to climb into someone’s lap for comfort?  Perhaps you’ve been feeling angry or sad or afraid. Perhaps you’ve been feeling alone, and memories of climbing into a parent’s lap are a comforting thought.  As we grow in life it becomes a bit impractical to sit on our parent’s laps, but we are never too big, too grown up or too anything to climb into the LAP of God.
