To achieve true liberation we must pursue mindfulness so we become aware of our minds. In this way we can release the anchor of materialism and flow back to our source of Spirit

So let’s say, just hypothetically, that something happened in your life that you didn’t enjoy. In fact, you might say it really sucked. You don’t ever want to go through that again. Maybe you got fired, jilted, embarrassed, or angry beyond words. Maybe you said something you shouldn’t have or were really hurt because someone said something unkind to you. Now what?
It is hard to imagine that we have been celebrating Earth Day for 42 years. It was first celebrated in 1970 after seven years of petitioning by Earth Day founder, Senator Gaylord Nelson. Prior to this time main stream America was unaware of all the environmental damage being done by massive V8 cars and manufacturing plants spewing out smoke, sludge and smelly smog. At this time industries had no fear of legal consequences or bad press. The 1962 best seller by Rachel Carson, “Silent Spring” enlightened and educated its readers to the effects that pollutants were having on the planets environment and to the public’s health. Several years later a massive oil spill in Santa Barbara, California motivated Gaylord Nelson to channel growing environmental concerns with a national teaching concept. This teach-in would force national attention to the environment. Massive coast-to-coast rallies, consisting of over 20 million people, took to the streets, parks and auditoriums to demonstrate for a healthy sustainable environment. Earth Day is celebrated annually on April 22nd. This year’s theme is to “The Face of Climate Change.”. The environment faces a multitude of challenges today. From climate change to species extinction, our planet and its inhabitants are continually facing man-made threats that must be averted. Lend your voice to a campaign, and help us work toward a sustainable future.

I live in gratitude for my strength, I live in trust of my choices. I have the power to know that if something is not working, I can change how I view it. My life purpose is always within me, I gifts myself time daily to sit in peance and listen to my soul. Everything will show itself in perfect time.
We believe that life is and all of its parts are divine. That means that life is graceful; it is bestowed freely with effortless beauty and divine love. But it takes a certain ferocity to live in that awareness—not a ferocity that is savage and violent, but a ferocity that demands a resolute intensity. It requires a fierce grace to live in the light. To remain balanced and in principle when faced with the apparent inadequacies of life’s experience is to live in grace. When we remember that we are not a polarized side of the experience but instead all of it, the wholeness manifests. And in that wholeness, grace exists.
From Rev. Dr. Kenn Gordon’s On the Path column, SOM April 2013.
Healing is possible, but you must decide to heal your heart from every wound inflicted on it! You must decide to free yourself from everything that cause you pain! Don’t nurture anything that reduces your life quality, takes away peace from your heart and even prevents you from feeling the presence of The Divine in your life! Surround yourself with people who uplift your spirit, love you for who you are, motivate you to do the right things in life, inspire you to follow love, guide you in the path of righteousness and wish only the best for you. Stay away from all those who only use you, disrespect, humiliate and cause you pain all the time! You know people by their actions! Your choices will make all the difference in your life, you can surround yourself with everything that will make your life to feel like a curse or surround yourself with everything that will make your life truly a blessing to self and others! Healing is possible! You are your own divine healer! Heal your heart! Heal your life! Decide to heal yourself and live a blissful life! Peace and divine guidance be with you!
Prem Tihan (Shafiq)
By the light of the silvery moon we may be learning some uncomfortable truths but within them is a positive message for us.
It reminds us to feel grateful and blessed for what we already have instead of chasing our desires. Not that pursuing your desires is bad, but there comes a time when the pursuit of our wants creates obstacles to our present moment.
This moon invites you to question your wants and desires more deeply to recognize your part in things. It is time to expand and deepen your self-awareness through relating with others.
You may find that this brings up some buried, and perhaps stagnant, emotions. Pay attention to these emotions for they will show you your triggers and also where you need more healing and understanding. Sometimes we find ourselves overlooking ourselves in our pursuit for peace … a tradeoff in self-respect. And sometimes we find ourselves living in denial of our role in things.
Beware of the desire to project these things onto others and power plays. Let this be a time for healing and transformation as you take responsibility and shift your perspective. View the situations through the window of your soul and find the deeper meaning in it.
Ride this wave of energy to a greater understanding of your life lessons which can lead to a deeply healing transformation. This is where your empowerment lies, not outside of you. Practice self-love and find empowerment within.
