Rev. Dr. Raymont Anderson

This Sunday, we shall receive an ENCOURAGEMENT from Rev. Dr. Raymont Anderson

 

 

 

In his words, “Alan W. Watts said that, “Muddy water is best cleared by leaving it alone,” because when left to be, that which clouds the water settles, and the water becomes clear. How often do we stir the waters of our minds with the opinions and desires of anything but truth? We desire to be, do, and have something other than what is right now. We are conditioned to judge in unrighteous ways and by doing this we cloud our perception of truth. Today, let’s leave the muddy water alone and see just how clear our mind truly is!”

The Art of Transmogrification

The art of transmogrification

 

Dear Friend in Spirit,

This Sunday, February 11th join us at The Center for Spiritual Living DC as we come together once again to ground ourselves in the Spiritual Truths that we know will uplift not only our own consciousness but the overall consciousness in the Nation’s capital!

 

Encouragement

 

This Sunday, we shall receive an ENCOURAGEMENT from Rev. Dr. Raymont Anderson

 

Rev. Dr. Raymont Anderson

 

In his words, “Religious Science is what this philosophy is called and yet many, due to our bad blood with “religion” have a bad taste in our mouths. However, Religion or that of being religious is to have an awareness, a spiritual awareness of self that goes beyond the superficial. It is being bound to the truth of one’s True Self, not bound to a dogma about what and how to believe. It is the intimate relationship with an awareness of yourself as The Self, the Atman and the Brahman are One. Religious Science is therefore the art of Transmogrification.”

A Season for NonViolence

 

Dear Friend in Spirit,

This Sunday, February 4th join us at The Center for Spiritual Living DC as we come together once again to ground ourselves in the Spiritual Truths that we know will uplift not only our own consciousness but the overall consciousness in the Nation’s capital!

 

Encouragement

 

This Sunday, we shall receive an ENCOURAGEMENT from Rev. Alex.

 

Rev. Alex

1. Respect I vow to respect others and the interconnectedness of all life.
2. Understanding I vow to understand the “whys” (the meaning behind behavior), for myself and others.
3. Acceptance Out of respect and understanding, I vow to accept the differences of others.
4. Appreciating Differences I seek to move beyond acceptance into appreciation and celebration of difference.
5. Truth and Truthfulness I commit to be truthful and authentic and to confront untruth wherever I find it.
6. Absorbing Suffering I take on without complaint any suffering that results from my confrontation with untruth.
7. Ahimsa (nonviolence) with my Adversary I vow to help my adversary avoid all suffering, especially from our confrontation.
8. Trusteeship and Constructive Action Beyond personal necessities, I see myself as God’s trustee over my possessions and talents. I promise to use them to empower others and make things fair for all.

This Sunday we will explore action steps towards being the change we wish to see in the world.

Uplifting Consciousness “To Boldly Go Where No Prayer Has Gone Before”

Rev. Dr. Ray

 

Reverend Dr. Raymont Anderson returns to ENCOURAGE us this Sunday.
In his words: Like many people, I was raised to believe that prayer was about my asking God for or telling God what I wanted. After years of study while still in the Baptist tradition, I came to the realization that this was somehow an errant idea. Years later I found New Thought and had my initial premise clarified and solidified. Now, I practice prayer as a scientific method of using the totality of my Spiritual being to declare and give thanks for what is, because Prayer is a Declaration from Source.

The unexamined life is not worth living

A quote from Socrates about life

 

Dear Friend in Spirit,
This Sunday, January 14th join us at The Center for Spiritual Living DC as we continue the January New Year energy by once again grounding ourselves in Spiritual Truths that we know will uplift not only our own consciousness as well as the overall consciousness in the Nation’s capital!

 

Encouragement

 

This Sunday, we shall receive an ENCOURAGEMENT from Rev. Ray Anderson.

 

Rev. Dr. RayReverend Dr. Raymont Anderson returns to ENCOURAGE us this Sunday. In his words:
Recently there was a study done, whose results identified a huge need for people to become skilled in a trade. So many people are going to colleges that fewer are becoming skilled at a trade. Would you believe it if I told you that we, in New Thought are showing similar results? Like any skill, our use of Spiritual Principles and the tools of the trade will be enhanced and made stronger through our consistent and effective use. Our lack of use will cause our spiritual muscles to atrophy. The choice is always ours; do we stay in a place of theoretical living or step in to a place of practical living?
Whether Plato who was credited with the quote or Socrates the more likely author, “An unexamined life is not worth living,” the more pressing question is: do you know how to develop these spiritual muscles?

Endings and Beginnings

Every end is a new beginning

 

Beloved Friend in Spirit –

What shall we leave in 2017? What shall we welcome in 2018? Who do WE want to be? Who do YOU want to be?

This Sunday we will engage in a fun ritual to release what no longer serves our highest good and embrace a lightness of being. I see for you a joyful, energetic body, a loving, compassionate heart and a mind that easily rests and easily focuses!

At the Center we offer unconditional love and non-judgment and seek to provide a place where we can together explore spiritual principles.

In addition to my Encouragement, this Sunday we’ll have Music by César Guarcax.

I hope you can join us! And please save the date for the Vision Board Playshop after service on January 7.

in gratitude, – Reverend Alex

Woman sitting in Flowerfield

Beloved Friend in Spirit –

Seasons Greetings! May this be a time of light and peace for you, your family and our world. The Core Council joins me in thanking you for your support of our mission and vision. We see the best in you and know that our community is making a positive difference in Washington, DC and beyond!

This Sunday we will explore what it means to Open to Grace: to relish the gifts of winter and remember that what we look with determines what we see. My prayer for you is that you find time over the next couple of weeks to celebrate, to reflect, to laugh and to find good. At the Center we will continue to offer unconditional love and non-judgment and to provide a place where we can together explore spiritual principles.

In addition to my Encouragement, this Sunday we’ll have a Power Talk from Practitioner Terry Oliver and Music by Practitioner Heather Jones.

I hope you can join us! And please save the date for the Vision Board Playshop after service on January 7.

in gratitude, – Reverend Alex
