Last night, we experienced our first Wisdom Wednesday at our CSL Kaua`i’s Institute of Magnificence. It was amazing. If you do not know what Wisdom Wednesday is, as we experience it, it is an evening to embrace a concept of the Science of Mind and Spirit in lively conversation and application to our lives. The reason I am writing about it here in my blog is because I believe at this time in our evolution on Planet Earth, we do need lively conversation and application of Spiritual Principles in our life. There is a lot going on in the world, some of it wonderful and some not so wonderful. We require community and a place to express ourselves and be empowered to be the best versions of ourselves.
In the world of theater improvisation, the participants work without a script, but have rules so that they can create the best possible scene work. In life, we work without a script, but it is good to know that there are Laws of the Universe that are here to support us. When we are not familiar with these Laws, we flounder and wonder how this or that happened to us. When we know and understand the Laws of the Universe, we have something to support our journey. We can actually co-create a life that is good and powerful. This is what our conversation was about last night and I want to continue it here.
No matter what we are experiencing in life, we are at the center of that experience. We can try to deny it and put ourselves on the outside looking in. We can blame others for our experience. However, when we put ourselves in the center of the experience with a knowledge of the Spiritual Law of Cause and Effect, we can find our way through the experience to the other end.
I used to be a victim. I thought life was happening to me. Now, I know that in every experience, I have a choice about how I am going to react to that experience. I also know that I am in the experience for a reason, and that reason only has to do with my growth and expansion. I also know that I get to react from a place of love or a place of fear. Cause and effect mean just this: we are causing the effect of our experience of life in every moment with a choice. We are not robots; we are spontaneous thinking beings. We are using the great Power that we can rely on at all times. As Ernest Holmes, Founder of Science of Mind, once wrote, “it’s not just some power; IT IS ALL POWER.” The Universe flows through us.
Do you feel powerful? Do you feel you are at choice? Do you live your life like it’s happening to you or do you take responsibility for where you are in life? These questions are meant to lift you up. We have everything within us to lift us up and out of any experience into a new life. It’s a choice and our choices are always supported by the Law of the Universe. It says yes to us, and vibrates back to us that choice in the way of a new experience.
Right now, I’m going through a challenge in which I get to test this Principle and use it. Because I understand it and know that it takes daily work to stay in the present and the Presence of this Power that flows through me, answers are coming, synchronicities are flowing to me and through me. My experience is changing for the better. I know that my life is unfolding perfectly NO MATTER WHAT. I trust the Universe. I know it has my back.
Wisdom Wednesday can be any day for any of us. Wisdom is available and it is within us. Can you believe there is One Power, One Mind, One Spirit that is you? As Rumi once wrote, “You are not a drop in the ocean; you are the ocean in a drop.”
I invite you to find a Wisdom group and join together in lively conversation and self-empowerment. It’s really important during what can be challenging times on Planet Earth. If you are interested in our group and you live on the Island of Kaua
i, join us on Wednesdays at 6:30pm at CSL Kauai. If you don’t and you’d be interested in joining us online (Zoom), let me know. When we get enough interest, we will form that Zoom Group.
Love and Aloha,
