It’s been a while since we’ve connected. Where have you been? … oh, wait … where have I been???
I have been in a whirlwind of change – probably the biggest shifting of my life. Let’s see … I surrendered my role as Senior Minister at Bodhi Spiritual Center, moved out of Chicago, pausing in Saugatuck, MI for a couple months, and then off to Los Angeles on December 28. As I am writing this I still have not secured our home in LA. The rental market out there is one like I’ve never seen. They are renting 5-7 days out, and some properties are experiencing bidding wars. I welcome your prayers around this knowing and affirming that my family and I manifest the perfect home for us to feel so happy, prosperous, and peaceful.
Through my years of teaching and speaking I have consistently run into the greatest amount of confusion, resistance, and fear around forgiveness. The defenses immediately arise - “They’re the asshole you know, not me!” “Why do I have to do it and not them?” I’ve even heard this … “Why do I have to be the bigger person?” Forgiveness, when misunderstood, becomes the very thing we imagine as against us instead of for us.
The world tells us that Joy is fleeting – that it’s dependent upon good things happening in the world, and that all good things come to an end.
What if you had a completely different experience of JOY? What if you knew what few know … that JOY is independent of circumstance, it is your rightful nature, and that you have the right to feel it, enJOY it, and let it lead you into greater and greater freedom, peace, and prosperity?
