Our Prosperity is equal to our ability to be who we are!

Hello friends,

I’ve just returned from a wonderful trip to San Francisco. What an incredible city, with so many fabulous people, places and curiousities to discover!  Something I love about this city of rolling hills and vivacious cultures is the knack of the individuals who live there to express themselves as the unique and beautiful beings they are.

It was also great to see the play, “The Tale of the City” and recognize the significance of Armistead Maupin’s work and how he taught people to accept individuals who are different from themselves. The most unique thing about us is our uniqueness, imagine everyone accepting this reality? Imagine everyone living a prosperous life due to their acceptance of their own worthiness and right to be.

Only listen to those people in your life who encourage you to be you, to take risks and understand you can be anything. Your dreams are waiting on you to come true.

I was reminded of a saying you may know – it’s a slight variation on a more popular prayer:

God, grant me the serenity to accept the people I cannot change,
The courage to change the one person I can,
And the wisdom to know that person is ME.

I love this, because it’s brings a little humor to the reality of GRACE. Be still and know I AM.
In the midst of the bustle of the day, a family gathering, a workplace challenge, we have the grace to know we can be still. And in being still, we open ourselves to a higher wisdom.

In How to Speak Unity, I wrote as part of the word BEING:

“In the space of stillness, we are able to relax and let go. There is tremendous power in letting go of what could be, for it is then we are able to accept what is. Somewhere between the thoughts of what could be and what is, there is usually a more perfect solution waiting to be birthed. Our greatest insights come from stillness.”

When we’re facing a challenge, question or conflict, our own GPS (God Personalized System) will guide us.  It’s wonderful to receive good advice from trusted friends, and it’s miraculous to know we have our own best friend within. When we listen, we know. When we know, we can be sure and trust ourselves to express ourselves as the unique and beautiful beings we are!

Wishing you a beautiful and expressive summer,

Temple

Perhaps life is perfectly designed to be a mystery?

Perhaps life is perfectly designed to be a mystery?

Perhaps life is perfectly designed to be a mystery so we can allow the mystery to be perfect by design. Deep, right? But think about it: The mystery is a mystery for a reason. I remember talking to a student who was asking me why he could not know in advance that his prayer was…

Whole Self

Whole Self

When we live from a place of wholeness, then we are not experiencing life through the eyes of lack. Therefore, we can give freely of our time, our talent, and our love, for we know that the more we give, the more we will have to give. When we live from a place of wholeness,…

What Does Your Mirror Reflect?

What Does Your Mirror Reflect?

I have been doing christening ceremonies for the past twenty-three years, and each time I invite everyone from the immediate “village,” who are there to support the child to come into a circle. I always ask, “What do you wish and pray for with this child?” The answers come quickly: to live his dreams, to…
