Denise’s Daring Daydreams 01/24/19

Our inherent urge as a human species is to understand the reality we are standing in.  Elizabeth Gilbert in, Eat Pray Love, calls this desire “the itch”, the mad and relentless urge to want to understand the workings of existence.  The real question is, “Am I aware that this search or deep desire to understand is the vehicle that allows my consciousness to expand?”  In actuality is it the vehicle that assists with the expansion of consciousness on our planet?  And, does this expansion of consciousness give us clues along the way on how to create the world we are desperately wanting to create? 

Ervin Laszlo, a Hungarian philosopher of science systems theory has written many books about the intelligence of the cosmos and why we are here on this planet at this particular time.  Ervin states, “There is a constant and intimate contact among the things that coexist and co-evolve in the universe – a sharing of bonds and messages that makes reality into a stupendous network of interaction and communication.”  Could it be we are really all connected and have the same goal in mind, we are just calling it different things and going about it in different ways? That ‘Quantum consciousness’ shows us that we are one with others and with nature?  That everything we do to others we are doing to ourselves?   

I hope that you will join us on Sunday morning as we complete Principle #1 in the lesson The Search for Truth: The Expansion of  Consciousness.  We have to but set out on the open road before us, with eyes wide open and hearts ready to love, and we must be willing to ask, seek, and knock even when it appears that the answers elude us.  Dr. Laszlo calls the process a “reorienting of our vision, which has the power to motivate our actions and influence our decisions.” 

The amazing Becky Shert Duff will be sharing special music, and you don’t want to miss it.  Her music will speak to the journey and the deepest desires that many of us have to create the dreams that live in our hearts.  We have held on to this desire in the midst of the chaos and in the midst of all this personal transformation we are experiencing.  Just remember:

“I think of what the world could be – A vision of the one I see.  A million dreams is all it’s gonna take – A million dreams for the world we’re gonna make.”

Denise’s Daring Daydreams for 01/17/19

Have you ever wondered what is true?  Interestingly I have had those conversations quite frequently over the last few months and not just in Lunch Bunch or in Wednesday evening class.  These conversations have happened in sessions with clients and in the women’s group I run on Tuesday evenings.  These conversations are beginning to happen in my own family with my sons and the questions seem to be the same.

With all the information out there about our country – our world

What is true – What is not true?

Who can we believe?

Why are we even here?  What should we be doing?  

Over the last few months, as I settled on an overarching theme for 2019, I began to realize that each of us, no matter the truth that we are holding onto, are on a journey.  This journey is through the story that we have decided is true – unless we abandon it somewhere along the way and become lost for a time . . .  (I’ve done that also). 

And, even if we get lost,  there is an internal compass, a GPS of sorts that is guiding our every step if we allow it.  This inner GPS has the potential to take us deep within the recesses of our own being.  Inside is where we will find what we are seeking, the truth that has been there from the beginning of time. Jeremiah 31:33 states: “I will put my law within them – I will write it on their hearts”.  Maybe we have been looking in all the wrong places. 

This Sunday, January 20th, we will be discussing The Search for Truth.  Some of you have been reading The Untethered Soul by Michael Singer.  This Wednesday evening class is assisting many of us with some tools to take the inner journey.  This same Michael Singer wrote a book first published in 1974 entitled The Search for Truth.  I will be bringing some of the gems of this book to light on Sunday morning.  

We will also be blessed by Deborah Bishop and her beautiful music.  I leave you with a few words from Deborah:

 

Everybody comes from somewhere

Grows up doing what they’re told

Everybody comes from somewhere

It’s time to break the mold
