This SiT-Cast was recorded on Sunday, September 1st. in Oceanside, CA. We talked about the word of the month from August, which was Creativity. The Saboteur of creativity is Conformity. Remember that creativity is not only about singing, painting and dancing, but rather it is about learning how to change when new ideas reveal themselves to you. You can design your spiritual practice in a creative way that fits you rather than conform to what other people say you should be doing. Be a free person!
Please enjoy the First Sunday recoding on creativity.
The Word of the Month for September, 2019 is the word Silence. The saboteur of Silence is Noise. Silence is a key ingredient to meditation. You may have a quiet place meditate, but there can still be a lot of noise in your own mind once you sit down to rest. We must learn to find the silence within ourselves throughout the day, in order to heal our own minds, and to find a place where we can respond to whatever is in front of us instead of merely reacting. How do we access this space? Practice!
The word of the Month for August is Creativity and the saboteur is Conformity. Creativity and intuition are very closely related words. Listening inside ourselves, and learning to trust our own ideas, is a very natural process. Conformity bypasses listening to ourselves in favor of whatever ideas might seem normal. In order to move forward, deep listening with creative ears is required to solve problems as they arise.
The video for this month is a departure from our ‘normal’ format of late, so that we could explore creatively – with friends!
This class was recorded on Sunday, July 7th, 2019, in Oceanside, California. We discussed the word of the month from June, which was Empathy. The saboteur of empathy is Apathy. Empathy raises our emotional and intellectual IQ. Apathy only lowers it. Join us this month, as we focus on the word Acceptance.
