Divine Presence

Distant Mountains

 

Dear Friend in Spirit –

How is your state of mind these days?

Seva means “selfless service” in the ancient Indian language of Sanskrit. On a personal level, seva can be thought of as those acts of service we do for other people with no personal gain in mind. Typically, this would refer to acts of volunteering for charitable causes. However, the spiritual practice of seva refers to the state of mind with which we perform an action in the world, a state of mind founded in dedicating and surrendering our actions to the Divine One. Ultimately, then, seva is the attitude of selflessness with which we engage in any activity, including those that form our daily work routine.
This Sunday New Thought Practitioner Joanne Hepworth will share her thoughts on the Divine Presence. Our Music Director Deletta Gillespie returns to delight us with her songs.

We are so grateful for your financial support here at the Center! It is the nature of the Divine One to simultaneously give and receive.

Our Thoughts are Prayers

Flowers Lake Mountain

 

Dear Friend in Spirit –

Prayer, in the common use of the word, is an act of communicating with God by speaking out loud or by silently using directed thought. Prayers can also be sung. Often the purpose of the communication is to ask for something for oneself or someone else: an outcome, a change in circumstances, an increase in possessions, awareness. Affirmative prayer is a specific type of prayer that departs from the idea of asking God to do anything on anyone’s behalf. Instead, affirmative prayer is a mental exercise one actively engages in to realign one’s thought with the true, good nature of Divine Reality. In this way, affirmative prayer is a practice of thoughtfully aligning with Reality by affirming it.
This Sunday New Thought Practitioner Terry Oliver will share her thoughts on Prayer. Musical Guest Patricio Zamorano returns to delight us with his songs.

Divine Ideas are Currency

Group of people with the letters "Julies Angels"

 

Dear Friend in Spirit –

Do you know Julie? She is a beloved community member whom we are supporting in various ways. She recently shared this note:

I was deeply touched when my boss [at the Four Seasons Hotel] called to tell me that the Rooms Division Team at the hotel wanted to create a team, in my honor, for our annual Race to Beat Cancer on Saturday, September 15, 2018. Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts worldwide has been raising funds for cancer research since 1980 when our Founder was inspired by Terry Fox’s run across Canada to raise funds for research. Terry Fox was diagnosed with bone cancer at age 17 and passed away at age 22 after an incredible feat and profound courage. For many years, Four Seasons Hotels worldwide raised funds for this Foundation. Over the years, the focus has changed to local support. Our Race to Beat Cancer benefits (100%) the Washington Cancer Institute at Washington MedStar Hospital Center.

I am not certain that I will be able to attend, as my third chemo treatment will be on Wednesday, September 12th, but I am going to do my darndest! If I go, I will walk a bit and cheer everyone on! Gene is also registered.

If you feel called to walk or run or to donate, this is an opportunity. Please follow the link
https://runsignup.com/Race/32813/Donate/3C3PB2k24viH69zw#.W4SXoh9Ez_8.email

In any and all cases, I thank you so much for your support, love and prayers. I never thought that I would be in situation that I am in…one never knows. I know that my treatment is in part a result of much successful research and that I and many others are having an easier time in some ways during chemo because of this research.

I cannot thank you enough. Please know that you are in my prayers daily.

———————————————
This Sunday we will hear a talk by Reverend Michele Synegal on Divine Ideas. With music by Deletta Gillespie and prayers by New Thought Practitioner Joanne Hepworth.

You are cordially invited to stay after service for a short COMMUNITY MEETING to help us plan for our future together!

Don’t Take it Personally!

Hands in different colors

 

Dear Friend in Spirit –

A wise teacher once said:

If someone is not treating you with love and respect, it is a gift if they walk away from you. If that person doesn’t walk away, you will surely endure many years of suffering with him or her. Walking away may hurt for a while, but your heart will eventually heal. Then you can choose what you really want. You will find that you don’t need to trust others as much as you need to trust yourself to make the right choices.

If you keep this agreement, you can travel around the world with your heart completely open and no one can hurt you. You can say, “I love you,” without fear of being ridiculed or rejected. You can ask for what you need. You can say yes, or you can say no — whatever you choose — without guilt or self-judgment. You can choose to follow your heart always. Then you can be in the middle of hell and still experience inner peace and happiness. You can stay in your state of bliss, and hell will not affect you at all.

 

Come and join us on Sunday at 10 a.m. for meditation and 11 a.m. for a transcendent service that guarantees to warm your heart, inspire your imagination and give wings to your dreams. My talk will address the agreement to not take things personally. We’ll hear MUSIC by Deletta Gillespie and PRAYERS by New Thought Practitioner Terry Oliver.

Sunday Service in the Heart of DC

Prayer is a thought, a belief, a feeling, arising within the mind of the one praying. Ernest Holmes

 

Dear Friend in Spirit –

At the Center for Spiritual Living –

  • • We are a healthy, effective organization honoring and respecting each other and all of creation.
  • • We are known for the love that we share throughout our community and the world.
  • • We stand together in a shared commitment and devotion to our spiritual principles, practices, and values.
  • • We are all in this Life together and we include everyone in our vision of a peaceful, loving world.
  • • We embrace the evolution and revelation of higher consciousness.
  • • We are prayerful and principled in our decision-making and actions.
  • • We practice the spiritual tools put forward by Dr. Ernest Holmes and by other spiritual leaders and mystics who teach and apply truth principles for our individual lives.

Here in Washington, DC, we have the ability to touch lives through our authentic and undefended way of living. In the most transparent way, let us show up: open, vulnerable and willing to touch the perfection of each other!

Come and join us on Sunday at 10 a.m. for meditation and 11 a.m. for a transcendent experience that guarantees to warm your heart, inspire your imagination and give wings to your dreams. We’ll hear a talk by Reverend Michele Synegal on AFFIRMATIVE PRAYER. With MUSIC by Teporah Bilezikian and PRAYERS by New Thought Practitioner Joanne Hepworth.

Affirmative Prayer is based on the principle that the universe is a Spiritual System with laws that are those of Intelligence. Prayer is effective insofar as it agrees with and cooperates with the essential nature of Reality. The process should tend toward the gaining of an inward realization, a feeling, a sense, an atmosphere of peace, harmony and protection.
