The Right to Be You

The Right To Be You

Dear Friends,

Like Thomas, the little engine that could, we all need to move beyond “I think I can” to “I know I can make a difference in this world.” At its core, the message of this book is very simple: Love thy neighbor as thyself. But like all simple truths, it’s complicated, and it took me a long time to taste that truth. I was raised a Southern Baptist and came of age at a time when Civil Rights and Women’s Rights were in full force and Gay Rights, Animal Rights and Religious Rights were being hotly debated. We seemed to be screaming at each other: “love only those neighbors who look like us and believe the same things.”

I wanted to bring all those different rights under one umbrella: Life Rights which covers everyone. And that means you have the right to be you. Excerpt taken from article in Natural Awakenings Magazine written by Rebecca Johnson who interviewed Temple Hayes. It’s really true – the more you fall in love with your life, the more your life falls in love with you.

In New Thought we would call this working with the law of cause and effect. Our ancestors would call it common sense. I would say that life constantly mirrors to us our spiritual journey – the one we are awake to and the space which is awakening before us. One Sunday, I mentioned the statement by Mark Twain, “There are two important days in a person’s life, one is the day you were born and the other is when you find out why.”

Loving life, Temple Hayes

Slowing Down

Slowing Down

A young and successful executive was traveling down a neighborhood street, going a bit too fast in his new Jaguar. He was watching for kids darting out from between parked cars and slowed down when he thought he saw something. As his car passed, no children appeared. Instead, a brick smashed into the Jag’s side…

Beings of Light

Beings of Light

We are not designed to grow old; we are created to grow up and out as beings of light. Some would call this the lightness of being or taking yourself lightly. Whether or not you believe in the Bible, when the Creator said, “Let there be light,” the Creator was talking about you. Even Jesus…

Are You Awake?

Are You Awake?

First, you must realize you are asleep, then you are awake. Then you must die, so you can be born. You can not be born until you die and you can not die until you wake. Jungian psychology I have always enjoyed the story of a multitude of people with Buddha wanting to know how…
