Denise’s Daring Daydreams for 08/24/17

W O W!  What a week of insights and shifts.   I have listened to story after story of how experiencing the Eclipse made a profound impact on people’s lives and their personal belief systems.  The scripture, “Be Still and Know,” is the first one that comes to mind.  In the silence and the stillness there is an experience of oneness that we begin to feel and understand at the cellular level. 

Which leads me to this weekend.  Unity of Music City has an event called “Listen to the Land.”  We have 5 acres of land that needs to be developed and used and we have stepped up to listen to our land to see what information it might have for us.  This event begins on Friday evening and ends on Saturday afternoon.  There will be eating, drumming, meditation, circle processes, etc.  Our Youth will be having a joint Unplugged experience and will be joining us for some of our process. 

I am thinking that there will be some great learning and understanding that will happen when we slow down and begin to get still and just listen.  And then on Sunday morning my “brother from another mother,”  Rev. Jamie Sanders, will be joining me on stage for an experience of discussing what lessons we all have learned that have made the biggest impact on our lives. 

We actually are going to be brave enough to take questions from the audience.  You don’t want to miss this!  If you have ever experienced our Blog Talk Radio Show, “Spirituality Today,” it will be a bit like that – Wild and Free with Jamie and Denise

Our very own Praise and Worship Team will be providing music and who knows what else might happen!  You never know when Jamie and Denise tag team together. 

Imagine being able to live a life that feels created just for you.  Imagine being able to live with ease and grace secure in the knowledge that everything is unfolding exactly how it is meant to unfold.    

Just Imagine . . . . .Rev. Denise



Denise’s Daring Daydreams for 08/17/2017

Over the last month we’ve been reminding ourselves of who we are, where we came from and where we are going.  We’ve also begun affirming that we are divine expressions of the energetic flow of the Universe that some call God.  As I continue to reaffirm the presence and power in my life, I begin to understand that it is in every one of us. 

 

I know who you are.  I know where you came from and I know where you are going, even when you have forgotten.  And so my mission, if I choose to accept it, is to remind you with my thoughts, my words, my emotions and with my actions.

Many times when I first see a person I have a judgment because it is the nature of the human intellect – “this is ok in that person, this is not okay in that person.  He is good, he is not good, she is beautiful, she is ugly” – all kinds of thoughts.  Know that we don’t even have to think these thoughts because in a moment these assessments and judgments are made.  These judgments are often wrong because they come from my internal filing cabinet created from my past experiences. 

The major problem with this type of operation system is that those thoughts will not allow me to experience something or someone the way they are right now in this moment. This one fact is very important to my well being and the well being of our entire planet.   What I have a hard time understanding is how they were five years ago does not matter in this ‘now’ moment. How they were yesterday does not matter in this ‘now’ moment.  How they are in this ‘now’ moment is the only important factor in this encounter. 

So the first thing to do is to notice and acknowledge the source of creation within them.  This is the intention of Namaste’.  What if every time I met another I first remembered and heard the words in my head, “I know who you are”?  That would imply Namaste’ – “I bow to you.” The gesture Namaste’ represents the belief that there is a divine spark within each of us and it begins within the heart.  Therefore Namaste’ is a gesture between one divine spark and another.

I affirm you have had a great week and will join us on Sunday to experience the Divine not only in yourself but also in each other as we discuss Service to All Sentient Beings in Your Life.  The awesome Ryan Gill will be sharing special music with us. 

“It’s acts of kindness I do each day – I’ll share peace and joy and love.”

Namaste’Rev. Denise
