The Word of the Month for May, 2019 is: Dignity. The saboteur of dignity is the word Injustice. We all want to be treated with dignity, so it’s important that we recognize the dignity inherent in all people. The Yogis say: “There is only one caste, the caste of humanity.” This month, let us focus on the dignity within ourselves and within others, regardless of their circumstance.
This is the Second installment of the Saints in Training “First-Sunday Sit-Cast,” recorded in Oceanside, Ca. on Feb. 3rd, 2019.
The word for January was inspiration. The saboteur of inspiration was vanity.
We are inspired by beauty; in a moment, in a face, a song, or a look. Vanity tends to sour our ability to perceive inherent beauty within one another. We look for inspiration in all kinds of places out in the world, but it’s important to remember to look within.
The Word to meditate on for February 2019 is Inclusiveness. The saboteur of inclusiveness is Separativeness. We may not be able to resolve all of the differences we see around us, or in the news everyday, but we do have the power to resolve differences within our own selves, allowing us to let them go – and therefore be free.
Welcome to our SIT cast! We have a gathering on the first Sunday of each month in a beautiful outdoor setting in Oceanside and you are invited to be with us. We have decided to record these gatherings this year and call it our SIT-cast. We begin the SIT-Cast by talking about the previous month’s word. We review our experience with the word and then at the end of the SIT-cast, the new word for the next month is shared.
This SIT cast was recorded on Sunday, January 6, 2019. The word for December was Protect and the Saboteur is Control. Control can be a virtuous quality, but we need to understand that sometimes we think we’re protecting someone, when in actuality, we are controlling them, rather than controlling our own mind.
