It’s All in the Program!

“To be aware means to open our eyes to see the truth.”Image
-The Fifth Agreement, p. 24
 
The things that matter most to me in life are the things that have impacted me spiritually.  This can be books, people, events, interactions, etc.  Several years ago I was deeply impacted by the book, The Four Agreements, by Don Miguel Ruiz.  I have read that and re-read it many times and it is a book that has literally changed my life – my beliefs changed after having read it!  The new companion to that book is The Fifth Agreement, written by Don Jose Ruiz, Don Miguel’s son.  I am reading it for the first time and am equally impacted.  My favorite quote from the opening page is, “The infinite, a total power, creates a program just for you, and everything you need to be what you are is in the program.” 

 Isn’t that a great thought?  So what happens that we get off track?Discover with me, the tools to self-mastery.  You will be blessed by the Toltec wisdom found on these pages that comes alive in your heart and soul.  I hope you will join me for this 8-week summer series.  I am humbled, honored and blessed to be able to share it with you beginning this Sunday.

Just Take The First Step!

Image“The journey of 1,000 miles 
begins with one step.”
-Lao-Tzu

My soul’s journey, in retrospect, feels and looks like a journey of 1,000 miles.  I have been looking back at my spiritual journey and noticing how many twists and turns my path has taken.  I always hoped for an easy journey – don’t we all?  And I figured something out that is so important.  Each twist and turn of the journey was a lesson. Each twist and turn was a learning.  I am grateful for every one of them.

Look back at your journey.  Give thanks for all the lessons. And use those lessons as you move forward.  Use the lessons to help others on their path. Use the lessons to not make the same mistakes over and over again.  Grow past your past and move forward in each now moment.
 

If you are new to what I am calling “your soul’s journey” – don’t worry.  You will know when to take your first step.  Worship with us, sing with us, pray with us and your soul will tell you your next step. We will support you as you take it!

Contact your higher self

The other day I was listening to an old song with these words, “Your love is lifting me higher than I’ve ever been lifted before” and I thought, ‘now THAT is a great song about meditation!’  I know it’s a love song of course, but all love is really God love.  And all desire is a desire to know God.  How do we know God?  Through prayer and meditation.

Meditation is contacting your higher self, the God part of you to know and experience God. Image Meditation will help you live life from a deeper place of connection and higher place of love.  A few minutes a day is a great place to start…especially if you are new to it.  If you do meditate already, expand your practice and see how you are changed and lifted.  When that happens you can join me in the back-up chorus singing “your love is lifting me, just keeps lifting me…”  and then show your gratitude to God by giving great thanks with much love and then living that energy in the world.

Thank you for joining me on this spiritual journey – this journey of meditation and the evolving soul.  And know that as you do, you are guided and guarded by the Holy Spirit.  You are loved, you are safe, you are blessed.

Many blessings and much love,
Rev. Cynthia Alice Anderson (RCA)
Spiritual Leader
