Description / Background:

Spiritual Guidance is an inter-faith / non-denominational ministry initiative based in the National Capital Region that works with people to explore their spirituality. Spiritual Guidance’s ministry efforts include spiritual programming. These spiritual programming services include discussion groups (or ‘dialogue circles’) that are committed to bringing diverse people and views together for discussion and exploration. Participants are invited to share readings, poetry, prayer, music, meditations, reflections, thoughts and experiences from their respective spiritual and faith traditions. We encourage everyone to share their personal inner wisdom connecting spiritual practice and everyday life.

Purpose:

Ultimately, our goal is to foster inner peace and peace throughout the world. These discussion groups are intended to provide a forum to:

• Unite people around spiritual discussion and, in the process, raise collective consciousness by sharing our insights for the benefit of all participants.

• Explore spirituality in all its diversity, infinity and splendor.

• Awaken our souls to new possibilities.

    For My FINAL addition to this weeks topic of relationships, I will submit a poem or prose selection that is very dear to me, as I channelled this the night after my Baptism. A NEW DAWN COMETH

    Let each day come as a new day
    And as each new dawn breaks let
    All precieve it and start Anew!
    Afresh as a new dawn breeze
    that blows On ALL, Without concern
    for borders, boundaries and beliefs
    Like the new dawn rays that shine
    On ALL, Without preference or prejudice
    Let All rejoice in the new rays of hope
    for the Eternal breath of life
    In a World of Peace with Christ

    I started with the SOLE SURVIVOR / PRISONER and ended with the WORLD at peace! ALL Good lessons For US to LEARN!

    Back to our next topic - 'Relationships their spiritual purpose'?
    I covered the lone castaway survivor on a deserted island in my last post but then I asked myself what makes solitary in prisons such a dreaded punishment? Here are the worse of society all packed together and the worst thing you can do to him is to take him away from more of the best anti-social beasts found on earth. Why is such such a feared threat to these hardened criminals? Is there a spiritual need even in these lost souls?

      Interesting? Do you speak of Karma need?

      March 2, 2013

    • Kim B.

      Actually I was speaking that it was amuzing and ironic that even the most 'Anti-Social' have the Human need for relationships and the spiritual benifits they provide? Also the worst punishment in prison is to take this away for even short periods of time?

    LOUSIE OR ROBERT COULD YOU ADD LOUSIE'S OPENING STATEMENT FROM THE LAST - SURRENDER EVENT TO THIS POST, AS IT WENT BY SO FAST I COULDN'T SAVOR, MEDITATE OR REFLECT ON IT? I WOULD LOVE TO GO OVER IT AT MY OWN PACE AND ADD IT TO MY JOURNAL FOR THIS MEET-UP AS IT WAS DEFINATELY ONE OF 2 HIGH-LIGHTS OF THE MEETING, THAT ALONG WITH TERRY'S JOB HUNTING BY SURRENDERING TO FAITH IN HIS WILL

      I'm still stunned by your opening statement of last meet-up listed above! Most importantly I had a realization that every "Step" we take starts with a desire but always ends in your "leap of faith", for every step ends placing your "Foot" on unknown ground until our full weight can be supported on it!

      Thank you Robert! Sort of like letting a teapot simmer? It is true I am letting go of the mind to try to understand and surrendering my higher self as I believe this is from a higher relhm than our present reality and cannot be understood by the INTELLECT alone? I'm OK? Just have to "Surrender" and focus elsewhere?? On to RELATIONSHIPS!!

    Imagine you are on a deserted island all alone, the soul survivor, of Say "The Tiny Ship was lost" but this time The Skipper, Gilligan and all else didn't make It" you are all alone, Tom Backus, The Millionaire! What interactions would you have to Learn by? Even worse if you truly were all alone, who would be filming the show? and who would be watching it? Sounds like the Omega Man meets Gilligan's island? Too bad Bob Denver and Charleton Heston are not available, might of been a good show to pitch NBC or CBS?
    Fortunately for us Earth is a really BIG "ISLAND" and we are not alone, we have billions of friends to play with and learn from. This I believe is the sole reason God made more than one of us or ... almost the sole reason - to have relationships and the learning that interaction between us partisipates
    P.S. If some of you don't remember "Gilligan's Island" the TV series google it! or you won't get this at all!

      Always Robert Sharing is what I seek and require myself! Thank you Lousie and Terry for your contibutions last week! To read Lousie's again is as the first! This truly is inspired by the Devine. This is what I SEEK as a truth seeker. When I hear truth it sets off alarm bells in my head and heart. This is why I'm here to find such Jewels and I feel in my heart, after these 2 witnesses, that I'm on the right path! Thank you Ladies for your Wisdom and Stories
