Happenings

P.S. from Rev. Cheryl for July 5, 2020

Rev. Cheryl

Dear Friends and Family,

I got a chance to watch the filmed version of the musical “Hamilton” for the second time on Sunday. Only 18 more to go! I am in awe of Lin-Manuel Miranda’s brilliance! And all the incredible performances just blew me away.

My favorite was the inspiring themes that kept recurring throughout – such as, “I’m not going to miss my shot,” or was it “I’m not throwing away my shot” and “It’s time to rise up!” And of course, the one line that struck me the most was, “When my time is up, Have I done enough?”

I believe this pandemic has given us a powerful opportunity to look at every area of our lives and decide what is REALLY important to us to be happy and fulfilled.

THIS is our shot at making a better life for ourselves… to make a better WORLD for ourselves! To create a world that works for all. But rising up to take advantage of this time may require us to move beyond our comfort zone.

I have been thinking a lot about when my time is up, will I have done enough. I like to ask you all to think about it too. Remember: WE BELIEVE the ultimate goal of life to be a complete freedom (emancipation) from all discord of every nature, and that this goal is sure to be attained by all.

Peace, love and oneness,
Rev. Cheryl

P.S. from Rev. Anna for June 28, 2020 Service

Rev. Anna Kendall

Dear LVCSL Spiritual Family,

Thank you for your kind remarks about my presentation on “Mental Equivalent” from the book written by Emmet Fox. I also read two quotes from Ernest Holmes’ book “This Thing Called You” and highly recommend it to you. For your easy reference, below are the four salient Mental Equivalent ideas from my presentation.

 #1. What is a Mental Equivalent?:

A Mental Equivalent is a picture you form in your mind of the material expressions you want to manifest in your life. To mindfully and consciously create anything you want in life, you must create a mental equivalent.

 #2. How to Create a Mental Equivalent:

You build the mental equivalent by thinking quietly, constantly, and persistently of the kind of thing you want. A sincere feeling and with interest must be present for a mental equivalent to be implanted firmly in your thought pattern.

 #3. Mental Equivalent versus Outlining:

To have clarity of thought, you want to be clear and definite, but not too specific. If you state when, where, and give a time limit, that is Outlining. Our part is to form the mental equivalent for “the what” and then leave it up to Spirit to create “the how and when” for us.
 
#4. Sustaining a Mental Equivalent:

To purposely change something in your life – you must mindfully and consciously change your thought and keep it changed by standing vigilant guard over your thoughts. Since two thoughts cannot occupy the same space, you destroy the patterns for the thing you don’t want, and they will disappear when you replace those old patterns with what you want.

 At this time in our lives, with all that is going on all around us, let’s decide today to mindfully create, hold and sustain the mental equivalent of peace, of perfect health, and oneness. Because when all is said and done, we’re ALL created by Spirit from Its desire to express Itself in us, and therefore we’re ALL one human family. Thank you.

 

Namasté,
Rev Anna

P.S. from Rev. Cheryl for Sunday, June 21, 2020

Rev. Cheryl

Dear Friends and Family,

It was so wonderful having a LIVE audience this past Sunday that I could actually see. Rev. Staci and I spoke to you about breathing.

There are so many ways to use the breath. It is an amazing tool of detection that can be a signpost to our state of mind and states of being. It is one of the easiest ways we can “check-in” where we are emotionally.

Suppose you are sitting in traffic induces parking lot and you are late to a meeting, your breathing becomes rapid in an attempt to quickly distribute oxygen-rich blood to your body as a result of the stress you feel sitting in the “parking lot”. When we are mindfully aware of how we are breathing at any given moment, we can immediately check-in on such things as tension, anxiety, fears, worries, stress, trauma, etc. And like any early warning detection system, the goal, once the warning has been signaled, is to act.

Our World is going through a time in our history where we are being called to action. If it is becoming an Ally, marching in the streets for equality. As a community of seekers and learners, I know that we are willing to do the inner work that leads to a World that works for all.

Remember: We Believe the ultimate goal of life to be a complete freedom from all discord of every nature, and that this goal is sure to be attained by all.

Love,
Rev. Cheryl
