2018 A YEAR OF LIVING GENEROUSLY
January – Seeds of Truth
Everything is first the seed of an idea in Spirit, and holds the fullness of potential. Spirit still holds the idea of me in the perfect truth that only Spirit can know. I now claim that truth, knowing that each moment, I am whole, sacred and worthy of all that is good in my life. As I move through each experience, I sow seeds of truth all around me and tend them with love. I listen for the wisdom of Spirit as I walk a path of truth and integrity, knowing that perfect light shines on every idea I plant.
With gratitude, I plant this prayer as a seed in Spirit, knowing that it, too, will grow. I give thanks for the constant work of Spirit in my life. And so it is.
~ Ace Szymanski, RScP
February – Brave Heart
Spirit is forever creating and re-creating, giving freely of the Divine Self in each moment. I myself am one such manifestation of Spirit. All of my being is perfectly alive in the Divine flow. I choose now to release any fear that stands in the way of my sacred becoming. In its place, I claim the strength and wisdom of Spirit within me. With a heart that is brave and true, I step into the role of co-creator for my life. Opportunities await my exploration. Love beckons me forward. I choose my highest and greatest good with gratitude for the gifts they offer and the blessings that surround me. With thanksgiving and confidence, I release these words into the creative action of Spirit, manifesting in my life right now. And so it is.
~Rev. Erin Marie Szymanski
March – Agents of Creation
Agents of creation: that’s you and I. Some great nagging idea begins to dog us. Insistent little fellow. An idea for betterment, expansion, enrichment. Eventually we listen and respond, and find ourselves wonderfully assisted.
Everything on these lands we share of “man’s” invention was first a passing thought then became visible. Whose passing thought was it? We believe God to be ever-expanding, always creating, by way of human beings. Be the tool you were meant to be. The tool for good, that is.
Under one planetary sky, we share our kinship in Spirit. As we are all from Spirit, we are also still parts of Spirit Itself. We can call upon it. Sometimes it calls upon us by means of new thoughts and ideas. We welcome divine inspiration. We make room to hear it by our quiet times. We know it when we hear it, as new thought, kind-natured, beneficial to many. And not busy-based or ego- worried.
It is a gentle, but revelatory, new track, clearly full of promise. We understand that God creates through us. Joyfully we acknowledge the partnership and bless the new directions. We, with Spirit, are Agents of Creation.
Thank you, God. I accept my part. And so It Is.
~Jacqui MacConnell, RScP, retired
April – Daring Greatly
At this time of transformation, rebirth and new growth, I am reminded there is only One. I look around; I listen within. I find It everywhere. That One Energy finds Joy in everything. I am one with that Life, that Joy, that exhilaration to Live more fully in each and every moment.
It is my nature to grow and thrive for that is the nature of Spirit. It knows nothing less. Flowers break through the shell of their bulbs, chicks crack their eggs, and butterflies leave the cocoon. All enter totally new stages of life. It is my turn too. My life is not governed by seeds or cells.
I have the power of choice. I choose to live a life in which I share my talents with passion and serve with Joy. I choose now to break through old patterns, and let go of old habits. I listen to, watch for and act upon those nudges of Spirit. I declare my willingness to stretch my comfort zone. I choose to thrive not merely survive. I release the what ifs and choose to live a code of what IS. Spirit only says YES. It knows no limitations. I embrace this Truth.
I am grateful that my thoughts and choices allow me to live a life that I LOVE. I release these words into the medium of Spirit, knowing all is done. Right here. Right now. And so it is.
~Kit Zinn, RScP
May – The Generosity Paradigm
We live in an Abundant Universe that operates on the premise that each of us is a single point of Creation. Furthermore, the Law of Circulation is always in effect: What we give, we receive – in equal measure, but not necessarily the same content, the same “stuff.” So please join me in knowing that there is only One Divine Presence, one Infinite Being of wonder and joy that freely says “YES” to our creation requests. Not only are our thoughts and feelings requests for creation, but so are our actions. Each generous action we express delivers wonder and joy from our hearts to others and produces a conduit for the Infinite and Generous Spirit to send more to each of us. Grateful for knowing this, grateful for sharing this and grateful for receiving this, I release this Treatment into The Creative Medium, knowing that it is so. And so it is!!
~Kalish Leviel, RScP
June – Living Beautifully
I live in a Universe of Love and Intelligence. Every particle of being is charged with this essence. That vast Intelligence and Love–what I call the Divine Mystery–is alive in me. My life, and everything in it, are the result of my participation with the Mystery. I am intimately bound to Its nature and It to me. I am moving with Intelligence in everything I create – and it is beautiful. I infuse every creation of mine with Love – and it is beautiful. Unmoved by outer circumstances, I create and live my life from the deepest place of my connection to the Divine. I live my truth and it is beautiful.
I am grateful for this life and my deep connection to Mystery. And so I let it be, now and always.
~Dr. Andrea Asebedo
July – The Mind/Body/Spirit Connection
I know that I am surrounded by an Infinite Intelligence which reacts to my thoughts according to Law. This Intelligence, this Spirit, operates through me, as me.
I claim a deeper realization of this consciousness, this indwelling Spirit, now. I choose active right thinking, turning my mind, my thoughts to embody happy, healthy, wholesome ideas of life, vitality and Joy. I practice this mental life so that a more wholesome manifestation of my physical, emotional, mental and spiritual aspects externalizes Now! I know that I am the perfect template of Spirit. There is only Wholeness, perfect Order and Balance in Spirit. I am that whole, perfect and complete being. As I think, I envelop my thoughts in the feelings of my choosing. I transmit these thoughts and feelings into action. I take the action that allows these thoughts and feelings to manifest to create the life I love living. I know that my thoughts are ideas of Spirit, manifesting in my mind. I use the power of discernment to choose the best ideas and allow them to express for my highest and best. I accept and allow this process of Mind expressing through my mind to manifest.
In gratitude, I am thankful for this process of Mind expressing through my mind, co-creating perfect health in all aspects of my being. I know this is the indwelling Spirit, the I Am!
I release these words into the Creative Medium and they are So!
And So It Is.
~Joanne Allison, RScP
August – Thriving
The ever-expanding, thriving and creative Oneness is forever and ever creating form out of Itself. There is no other One but the One. Therefore everything I am is an expression of the One and contains all of the attributes of the One. Oneness in me, as me, is me. I am a thriving, powerful, creative being. I dwell in the consciousness of the One Life. The Light of Truth shining in me and out of me constantly energizes me. This Light shows me the way to make a difference in my world. I boldly and enthusiastically live my life as a thriving, healthy and creative force for Good. I awaken to each day seeing pure beauty and joy as me, as you and as the world at large. For this thriving life I am so grateful. I release this prayer knowing that it is so, and so it is.
~Rev. Colleen MacGilchrist
September – The Heart of Change
The Universal Energy of Creation flows through all things. It is the Love and the Joy from which all Life is born. The divine Power of Spirit is ever present and ever changing. It is the center of my being, the source of my life, and the seat of my power. I am in harmony with the natural flow of creation. I align myself with Spirit and open my heart to the Oneness of all Life. As this Power flows through me, I feel my connection to all things. I feel the presence of God in the world around me, even as I feel that presence in my own soul. I know that the nature of Life is change. The weather changes, the seasons change, and I change. There are changes to my physical body, my mental state and my emotional self. I know that these changes are not permanent. They are stepping stones in the path I am creating. As these things change, I can choose to accept them and continue moving forward, or I can decline the new state, knowing my thoughts create my reality and that by making this choice I direct the change. I am on this spiritual journey because my heart calls for a change. I embrace my heart’s desire. I call it forth in Mind, beginning the change in the physical realm. I am so grateful for the constant state of change that enables me to create my Self, and for the ability to welcome that change. I release these words into the Law, knowing that they are so. And so it is.
~Katherine Wingerter, RScp
October – The Gifts of Imperfection
The Light and Energy of Spirit is everywhere present. It is in me and I am in it. Knowing this, fills me with a great sense of freedom and joy. I am connected to All That Is, to the vast cosmic Intelligence of the Universe, nothing less! There are no limitations. The past has no power in this present moment, except to inform me and to inspire me into right thinking and right action now. The next right step comes easily and naturally, for I am aligned with Spirit and in the flow. I release all fears, resentments and judgments. I forgive myself and others and move on, opening my heart and my mind to the Truth: that I am a spiritual being given an extraordinary opportunity to live this human life. I am up to it! I have the courage and compassion to be my authentic self, a one-of-a-kind expression of the Divine–learning, loving, changing, serving, evolving. Grateful for this moment and for all the unfolding possibilities, I let go and I allow.
And so it is.
~Heidi Ruth Dittrich, RScP
November – Gratefulness
Knowing there is One Source, I know this Source offers an endless supply and continuous flow of the All Good. This Source of Good is at the very core of all there is, the genesis of Love, Creativity, Abundance and Joy. In knowing my connection to the All Good, this Oneness, I step forward in manifesting and celebrating a vibrant life. I fully open to, accept, embrace and claim the Good in the Universe that is already there for me. It is a grateful heart that offers an opening for greater love to pour in. Gratitude powers my giving and receiving, and it is the heart that moves the Law of Circulation into fantastic action. Just as Spirit gives itself freely and lovingly, I mirror the Divine as I share my Big Love in the world. I give and share Love freely and I gratefully receive the Good of the Universe. I am so grateful for all that I am, all that I have, and for the consciousness of knowing that this is the Truth of my being. I graciously share my gifts, I gratefully receive my Good, and cast a wide smile upon the day. And so it is.
~Ronna Biggs, RScP
December – A Year of Living Generously
What a wonderful experience this past year has been. We began by planting our Seeds of Truth. And as we planted each of our Seeds of Truth, we got to know that each seed was a gift; a gift from our Infinite Source, asking us to go deeper and deeper into that Truth; asking us to know ourselves based not on what we do or have, but rather to know that we are the place where the Infinite shows up. We have been given the gift of knowing that we are the conduits of generosity. We have moved from “giving to get” to “giving so that we serve.” Our giving has moved from the place of “just enough” to that place of being the generosity of the Infinite. We know that the Divine Spirit that is right at the center of our being uses us to put generosity into place, in our own lives, in our community and everywhere we go on this beautiful Earth. We have all been blessed many times over by our giving and receiving generously in this past year, and our journey has been blessed by what we have achieved together. We are blessed by knowing that we have always been more than enough. We are generosity at its finest and its best. We are so very grateful to know that this is so. And so it is.
