At Temple this Month – September
Nature/evolution is leading us toward a perfect state. Up until this point we have advanced by compulsion. From this point forward, we can advance only by adding our understanding of how we develop.
Now we can sweeten and speed up our development through our environment. It has been proven that adults and children develop enormously with help from their environment.
Groups like Alcoholics Anonymous, Animal Rights activists and weight loss programs are all based on the communities influence. We all need to participate in the same way.
By developing good community we become children of the larger family, and in addition we then create a similar framework for our children. Ultimately, humanity needs to only be concerned with one thing; creating good environments.
Any parent would be glad to bring a child into a warm, friendly environment, where children are being taught to unite. This unity provides them with a sense of confidence and rids them of fear of poverty, suffering, pride, and other problems inherent in human nature. It’s nothing out of the ordinary; simply provide a good environment, which is a “gentle place” for development.
Such an environment allows a person to open up and to better perceive and take things in because they are not feeling constantly on the defensive in a hostile environment. As adults we often don’t understand what it means to be in an abundant environment. Where as a newborn baby in the arms of our mother we felt nothing except her embrace. This sensation gives us the strength to develop.
We lack this sensation and that’s why we’re facing a global crisis. In all areas where we previously were successful, we now find ourselves at a dead-end.
The crisis can on one hand can be a catastrophe and on the other hand a rebirth. The word “crisis” comes from the Greek word “krisis”, and means a new beginning. However, we use it incorrectly. Also, the word “crisis” in Hebrew means a place where new life emerges. The word “Christ-ness” has been popping into my consciousness of late, they sort of sound and mean the same……..interesting.
Lets remember that it is our environment/community that makes us happy or not. A truly abundant environment will simply make all our lives happy.
Lets give thanks to the environment that creates abundant community for us all. When we feel confident we have unity with others, our world feels safe and we feel the impulse to be generous with our gifts. We feel taken care of and want to take care of others. We then recognize we live in a world imbued with warmth, confidence, and kindness.
Our world becomes unified by the Light of Love and Light of Glory.
I would also like to acknowledge Cherie for her beautiful contribution about The Holy Mother archetype. She shared her recent experience of Abundance in Community. Her ability to share so deeply and spiritually was magnificent. I am sure that everyone who attended felt her words and presence Blessing each of us and our environment.
Thank you again Cherie for your wonderful presention.
