Happy Happy Daddy

A story came to me about a Dad who greeted his daughter every morning with open arms and the phrase, "Come here honey and hug your Happy Happy Daddy!" Collectively we say, ahhhhh. It is a sweet story that contains some great truths. The Dad was stating what he was without putting conditions on it. He was happy everyday. One of the things I first thought was that I expected him to be commenting on the little girl. "Come here you happy girl and hug your Dad." Or,"How's my happy girl today?" He was staying in his place of decision, himself. He can't speak for his daughter, even though many of us would like to be able to do just that, decide for others. He was also a living example to his daughter and all who hear the story. Choose to be happy, happy everyday. Not based on circumstances, but based on choice. Based on doing things that support the way he wanted to experience his life. He also was starting each day by setting his intention for happiness and with gratitude and appreciation. When I picture the scene with the open arms and the little-smiling-girl flying into them, it brings a smile and a resolve to be Happy! Happy! Rev. Carolyn

Ease and Grace

Rev. Roger Teel of the Mile Hi Center in Denver, brought up in his talk at the Asilomar Conference this year, the idea of whether or not it is a good practice to use the phrase, "ease and grace", when doing an affirmative prayer. Part of his thought was that not everything comes with ease and grace and if we expect it to be so we will think we are going the wrong direction when things get tough. I understand his perspective, but ease and grace means something different to me. It's not that there will be no problem or issue to deal with, but that in dealing with them we have a knowing, an awareness that we are loved and supported right where we are. There is a mantra that goes - God is. I am. All is well. Keeping this in mind allows us to move through life without undo resistance and with confidence that 'all is well.' Ease and grace is living in the awareness that we are loved, sourced, inspired, directed and protected no matter how the circumstances look. If you are interested in exploring this idea and other life changing questions, check out our class offerings at Rev. Carolyn

Spiritual Community Projects

It is always a blessing to see our community express from a clear awareness of our spirituality. As my travels to the Asilomar Conference Center on the Monterrey peninsula of California showed me, the spirit and commitment of our organization on a National basis is inspiring. So much work is being done internationally to share our teachings. We see a world that works for everyone and we work toward supporting and achieving that level of Life. As Rev. John Scott from the Jamaican Center shared, to be a part of the Centers for Spiritual Living is to be a part of a movement that changes lives! As I got caught up on what is happening here at the Louisville Center for Spiritual Living, I see again people committed to sharing truth, doing the work and making the commitment to do what it takes. There is great energy generating lots of Good stuff. Our new location is calling our name, we are listening, and know we will recognize it soon. We are making plans for the balance of the year and for 2013 to offer more opportunities to grown and learn to our current members and the wider community. Join me in knowing, "I live and move and have my being in the One." Rev. Carolyn
