SPIRITUAL ESSENCE:

Focusing on the essence of spirituality from all times, places, cultures…and beyond. Serving and cultivating the innate, inherent spiritual nature contained within all: the religious, the non-religious, the spiritual but not religious, the atheist, the agnostic, the mystic; whatever one does or does not consider oneself. We are beings at many different levels with many different aspects: physical, energy/life force, mind, intellect, emotion; but at our deepest common core, we are all spiritual beings. We all yearn to love and be loved, to nurture and be nurtured, to express and serve and realize each of our unique destinies. We can all help each other along our individual journeys, united by our common needs and yearnings.

Watch, receive, and enjoy as you allow yourself to become aware that the love that is inherent in Reality is bringing you into existence, flowing into you, and sweeping you away, again and again, at each moment.

Quote of the Week #97 - You Wake Up!

Beyond our dualistic view of life exists one Ocean of Truth. Within that Truth, human nature can experience unity without loss of unique distinction. You can experience a stillness beyond reactivity. You can live from kindness. You can embrace impermanence, appreciating the arising and letting go within each moment. You recognize cling and aversion as the cause of all suffering. You wake up!

The Nine Gates Mystery School invites today’s students into an embodied journey of this awakening – through birth, death of the false idea of self and a rebirth into an awakened state of Consciousness. After one taste of this Ocean, you won’t stop drinking until you become the Ocean itself.

Quote of the Week #96 - Secrets to Success

Q: I heard all successful people meditate and read. How much do you meditate and read on a weekly basis?

A: I meditate 20 minutes a day, and I suggest you do the same. I don’t time myself when I read, but if I can get two hours in, that’s a good day.
