This group is focussed on spirit, soul, and self-development using various contemporary teachings as the basis for discussion. Please note, this Meetup has several members who do not say they are attending but attend on a regular basis, so don't think nothing is happening if you don't see any RSVPs.
We are beginning a new series of discussions based on the Power to Change CD series by Marianne Williamson. This series delves into where real power comes from, how to access it, and what it entails.
"Williamson outlines the folly of man in falsely believing that power lays in man, or in the world. She compares worldly power to the wings of a sparrow. Rather, she explains, true power is from the creative which comparatively offers us the wings of an eagle. Accessing true power is much more a spiritual endeavor in this way.
She explains that to access real power of change requires more than your eyes and ears. Although your outer eyes and ears experience the exterior world, it's inner vision that tells of the inner world and all that it offers. She recommends starting each day with meditation getting clear on the source of power, and your intention going out into the world.
Marianne Williamson overviews 12 aspects of the power of change. It is to these we should be looking to solve the problems of the world, rather than looking for worldly solutions of might and rule. She is quick to state that true mystical power is understanding and awareness of the world and spirit... it is NOT control of everything in the world and spirit. The universe is about the growth of souls and the opening of hearts rather than manifestations in the physical realm."
Each week we will listen to Marianne Williamson's teaching on one or two of the Powers and then discuss their meaning and application in our own lives.
