LIFE STRUCTURE TALK AT 11:00
Our spiritual center - Dress casual. Come early, stay after for coffee and chat with people about the meditation, ideas and inspiration received. Simply, we are a group of people who gather to meditate together, get inspired regularly from each other for living in higher consciousness. Come and meet Rev. Susan Shahani trained by Reverend Dr. Michael Bernard Beckwith, at the Agape International Spiritual Center in LA
Spiritual practices of meditation, affirmative prayer, spiritual study, introspection, and service are the ground out of which all else evolves. All life structures (see below) are mirrors reflecting back to us how we are progressing in our journey towards self-realization. Thoughts become things and we attract into our lives not what we want but what we already are.

LIFE STRUCTURE TALKS
What are life structures? Life structures, as taught by Reverend Dr. Michael Bernard Beckwith, at the Agape International Spiritual Center, “are the fundamental areas of living where our growth and development are revealed. The stabilization of our life structures keeps pace with the evolution of consciousness.” As we grow spiritually, we open to the possibility of what our life is truly meant to be! And as we continue to stabilize these Life Structures, we become more open and receptive to receive all of the good that awaits us!
Life Structures include: Spiritual – Ego – Livelihood – Relationship - Body Temple – Financial – Beliefs - Community. Each month, we will dive deeper into one structure, providing you with tools, tips!
Life Structure – Body Temple
This structure reveals our relationship to the body temple as a vehicle of the Spirit that lives in, through, and as us. When stabilized, the body is provided balanced nourishment from food, water, exercise, and sufficient downtime. The fundamental wholeness of the body temple is a law unto the health of every cell, organ, and limb.
Life Structure – Ego
This structure is about self-respect, self-worth, and self-love. When our ego is healthy there is no experience of inferiority, superiority, or even equality. We don’t live comparing ourselves to others because we accept our intrinsic precious worth as a human being. We know that we are as cherished by the Whole as are all enlightened beings of past and contemporary times.
Life Structure – Relationship
This structure is about expressing unconditional love, compassion, and forgiveness, beginning with the relationship to one’s self and expanding to include one’s immediate loved ones, community, and world. When this structure is stabilized, we no longer seek relationship to make us happy; rather, we bring happiness to our relationships.
Life Structure – Livelihood
This structure is beyond simply having a job.
Life Structure - Community
