In the stillness and surrender is time to pause, peruse, and plan the next descent and ascent, moving from glory to glory as we take in what we have become through this journey. When learning a new skill or undertaking an adventure, a critical step is sitting at the plateau to assimilate and integrate our experiences before finding “what’s next.” I…
 
The journey comes to an end, but we know that is simply the beginning of another cycle and year. At each solstice is a stillness, a few days’ pause between the dwindling light and lengthening days to follow (or vice versa in the Southern Hemisphere). This is a time to sit and be with ourselves right where we are, listening to the still small voice …
 
As we get to trust Spirit and our use of the Law, we begin to feel more and more gratitude apart from or in advance of any demonstration, gifts from Spirit. We discover the power of gratitude in and of itself, what St. Paul was pointing to when he spoke about "giving thanks in all things". Not for all things, IN all things. This Sunday we will expl…
 
We all have experienced moments in our lives where our focus is so myopic on getting to the final destination that we miss the gifts in the journey towards it. Join Rev.

Have you ever worked really hard to achieve a goal and at some point it gets really hard and you want to give up? This is called the Quitting Zone and it often happens right before a big breakthrough. While it’s a natural part of life as a human, how do we know when it’s time to truly let go or dig deep and keep going? Affirmation: As we go and gro…
 
An African proverb reminds us “alone we can go faster, together we can go further.” Ubuntu is a part of Zulu life philosophy meaning “I am because we are.” In community, we embody a gestalt of consciousness - a whole that is greater than the mere sum of its parts - and each individual is uplifted because of the support of the group. How do we dedic…

Dr. Martin Luther King spoke often of the “Beloved Community,” a world in which all people share the wealth of the earth and violations of human decency are not tolerated. How do we apply spiritual principles to the collective well being of humanity? And what is the role of spiritual community in social change and social justice? "I am a presence o…
 
In spite of the discomfort and obstacles, we persevere and rise. Perhaps, what is in the way is the way, and that we rise not in spite of our challenges and discomforts, but because of them. There is that within us that continues to call us forward and upward on our journey of awakening, that calls us to a greater understanding of ourselves, our re…
 
When we push past our comfort zone, we are often faced with challenges to our old ways of being. Life can feel uncertain and our footing somewhat unstable.

Speaking on The Miracles of Our Sacred Yes, this Sunday is Rev.

Last week, through a series of enjoyable, but non-routine events, I missed the Sunday Gathering which always grounds me with beautiful music, a mind-clearing meditation, uplifting affirmative prayers, and a message from our amazing Spiritual Director that moves my heart and feeds my soul.

‘Without love, Evolution is a spiritual path of apathy, complacency, and lethargy. It is easy to talk the talk about love and more challenging to love our neighbour as ourselves. The evolutionary leap of this radical love calls us to reach out and love another. This is the Be-Loved community in action!’ The brilliance of this description of Rev. Ca…
 
‘If humanity is to awaken its Spiritual Magnificence and a World that Works for All, our discomfort must become our teacher.

Within the path of unconditional happiness, there is space for discomfort and what it is teaching us - even when it’s uncomfortable.’ Thi…
 
I admire our incredible Spiritual Director, Rev. Cassandra Rae, for her courage, compassion, and willingness to serve up the difficult topics. If the title for this week’s talk, Pushed by Pain, was a Netflix movie title, I would skim right past it. That is until I read Rev. Cassandra’s talk intro: ‘Suppose we didn’t deny or avoid pain, but rather e…
 
I see a new world. It begins with me.” ~ Rev. Ruth Littlejohn What stories about our individual and collective past do we continue to tell, that if we are honest, we know are not the most life-affirming stories?

I vividly remember my first Sunday at CSL White Rock, 6 years ago. It was the first time I learned that I am not a human being on a spiritual journey - I am Spirit having a human experience. In that moment, I was stupefied and elated! Clearly, this was the explanation for the conundrum I had often debated with others: If God is all-powerful, all-kn…

There is a natural human tendency to judge, criticize, blame, and shame people who cause harm. In the world right now there are a lot of harms coming into the light. Individually and collectively we are at a choice point: Will we retaliate or reconnect? In The Book of Forgiving Desmond Tutu and Mpho Tutu teach us that we can choose forgiveness inst…
 
"This Sunday, I was talking about "Looking Above" as a metaphor for taking your eyes off of all the complaints you might have and being willing to see the essential goodness in everyone including yourself. I was using chapter 9 in Radical Compassion by Tara Brach called "Seeing the Goodness." So often we get stuck in looking at the surface of peopl…
 
Are you living from compassion satisfaction or compassion fatigue? As spiritually minded humans with an inherently loving nature we often give, help, support our family and community with ease.
