Center for Spiritual Living™ Bellingham provides spiritual tools to transform our personal lives and help make the world a better place.
We honor all paths to God and can help you experience a personal relationship with God. When God is the focus of our spirituality, then other areas of our lives fall into place: we are happier, we can do more for others, be better stewards of the Earth, and help bring peace and harmony to the world.
If you are searching for a spiritual community where you are respected and accepted for who you are and want the inspiration and support to grow to your highest potential, please accept our invitation to visit us soon!
Theme for 2013: The Path & The Practice
MAY MESSAGE: THE SAGE’S TAO
It is often a challenge to continue to feel optimistic about the future of humanity in the face of the great difficulties and tragedies that swell around us at times. It is in these times that I turn to the vast wisdom that has flowed and continues to flow through humanity for solace and guidance. The deepest and most powerful thoughts and ideas that have time and again lifted us all from one paradigm to another have long been a fascination for me. These ideas create, shape and mold new realities and allow us to “unfold our myth” as Rumi would say.
So I thought I would share some of the thoughts and ideas that capture my attention and also help guide me through turbulent times in this series of Sunday lessons. Some will be from the wise ones of old and some from contemporaries in our world today. My hope is that this will support you in your journey too.
I will close with the words of one of my favorite wise ones: “"There are two kinds of suffering. There is the suffering you run away from, which follows you everywhere. And there is the suffering you face directly, and so become free." Ajahn Chah
Blessings to you and yours in the beauty of May!
Our service on May 19, 2013 - 9:30am
The Path & The Practice:
The early service is an opportunity to attend a different kind of Service earlier on Sunday mornings. This Service is extremely brief, just half an hour in length and will include prayer and a message and then lead into our regular fifteen-minute Sunday meditation.
