Theme of the Month: Let's Rise!

As Spiritual beings having a human incarnation, we are called to discover and activate our gifts and find our way of sharing them so that we may rise above the thought forms and beliefs of separation from the Source of All Creation.

One, we must find our way to our gifted nature. This means we must have an inner realization that there is so much within our consciousness that represents the bounty of the cosmos and that we are overflowing with infinite potential! Through our Spiritual practices, we become candidates for bonafide insights into our Real nature which raises our vibration from the density of lack and fear-based living to the buoyancy of joy and gratitude, simply because we exist. We rise into the supernal heights of regeneration, harmonious prosperity, generosity, creativity, and an ever-expanding awareness of our oneness with The Living One within. This leads to inspired action being translated from our inner insights.

Two, we must live to share and radiate our gifts, shine our light, live to give, and contribute as a way of being. When we live to contribute rather than merely to get, the Universal Presence, via Universal Law, finds infinite ways to give us more to give. As we live to give our gifts with the realization that our gifts do not belong to us but to the community of humanity, we rise to be grand reservoirs and rivers of more good than we can imagine.

As we celebrate Women’s History Month, allow the shining examples of women throughout history to be vibratory beacons of luminosity to light our way to paths to excellence. Let us allow the likes of Maya Angelou, Emma Curtis Hopkins, Nikki Giovanni, Kwan Yin, Coretta Scott King, Marie Curie, Dr. Johnnie Coleman, Dr. Barbara King, Grace Hopper, Dr. May Chin, Princess Bernice Pauahi Bishop, Mother Teresa, Madam C.J. Walker, Misty Copeland, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Harriet Tubman, Joan of Arc, Lydia Maria Child, Dorothy Day and the countless mothers, grandmothers, godmothers, and aunties who have stood for the excellence and well-being of their families and communities.

Remember the quote from the Gospel of Thomas: “If you bring forth what is within you, what you bring forth will save you. If you do not bring forth what is within you, what you do not bring forth will destroy you.”

Let’s rise! Let’s Rise! Let’s Rise!

Peace and Mighty Blessings,
