“We are not what we’ve been told and we’re more than we can imagine.” Gregg Braden
Gregg Braden received the Spiritual Leadership Award from the Humanity’s Team this morning. It was the perfect summing up of my days at the Cottages.
My Co-Spiritual Director and husband, Patrick and I spent 4 days here at the Waimea Cottages after a intense three months of activities at our Spiritual Center in Kapaa. It wasn’t a vacation, however. We spent the time in deep contemplation, reflection and planning for our lives and for our Spiritual Center.
My biggest take-a-way was one of accomplishment and appreciation for Patrick and myself and for all the people who have joined us to create this beautiful Oasis of Spiritual Nourishment in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. It has been eight wonderful, growing years and it has just begun.
Before arriving, there was a bit of uncertainty of what would come up for us. How would we continue to expand the Center? Did we want to? Were we happy with where we were right now? Did we have the support to continue? What does the future look like? Is this still what we want to do?
The answers to these questions reflect two people who have dedicated the last 20+years in self-improvement through learning the Principles of the Science of Mind and Spirit, studying and applying those Principles, changing their lives drastically for the better, and serving others through the whole process. There is still so much more to do and accomplish and we are ready to begin again. This is our life. To anyone with an intense desire or goal, realize you are exchanging your life for it.
Center for Spiritual Living Kaua`i’s mission is to “Awaken humanity to its magnificence by walking the bridge from duality to Unity.” As Gregg Braden stated above, “We are not what we’ve been told and we’re more than we can imagine.” We are God’s individualized Presence walking this Earth during one of the most challenging and awakening times. We are being stretched to our human limits so that we can awaken to the deep well of Magnificence within each of us that allows us to live vibrant healthy lives in service to humanity. We are superhuman.
Center for Spiritual Living Kaua`i represents the teaching of the Science of Mind and Spirit in its purity and in its expansiveness. It embraces the forward and upward movement of this teaching from the time of the New Thought Leaders of prior centuries to the new discoveries of Science. Consciousness is all there is and Consciousness is expansion. We are just beginning to discover that of which we are capable. We already know that we’ve been programmed to think less of ourselves. It is now time to let go of those stories and embrace who we truly are. Spiritual Mind Treatment (SMT) is a modality of healing that we can learn and use to achieve the changes that we desire in our life. It is Powerful and we have proven that it manifests our Truth instantly.
Center for Spiritual Living Kaua`i is a Spiritual destination that attracts people from all over the world. I remember when we first came here back int 2012 and shared our vision with a native basket maker on the beach, prophetically he said, “They will come from all over the world.” They did. They are. They will.
I am so up for growing and expanding myself and this community. More than anything, I want all people to know how powerful they are and to use their Power for Good and in Service to others. We can heal our bodies. We can live joy-filled lives. We can open the veil to all time and space. There is no death; only expansion and life.
Center for Spiritual Living Kaua`i and its Institute of Magnificence is already attracting teachers and students from around the world. It is a New Thought Village that calls all to come and connect with their highest selves, connect with life-minded people, be spiritually nourished, and to give and receive. It calls all who want to embrace their magnificence. Center for Spiritual Living Kaua`i is already anchored in its mission and opening up to its next physical home to house this mission.
Love and Aloha,
Rev. Rita Andriello-Feren, Spiritual Director CSL Kaua`i
