Our Vision: Inspiring and Uplifting Every One of Us to Transform the World!
Volume 18, Issue 6 B -- June 20, 2018

From the Board

By Sandy Rinehart
Vice President & Treasurer of the Board of Trustees 

I have given myself a challenge to live more spiritually and intentionally this summer. Like most of us, I find myself behind the wheel more than I like.  I have always been an optimistic driver - sure that I can get to my destination quicker than last time.  So when I ask the drivers around me “What color green do you want”: that translates now to “I bless you on your way; and may my way continue to be clear.”

I have identified certain street names with friends and when I pass those streets, I send them a blessing thought. A thought of love and light to enrich their day. I bless the drivers of the cars that pass me – even on the left. I am working on blessing the drivers in front of me that stop at the turn even though they have an acceleration lane.Continue reading Sandy's article

Practitioner's Corner

 Kathy Nunemaker, RScP

As I was contemplating writing about Healing, I kept seeing and hearing in my mind the immigration children who had been separated from their parents at the border, crying and feeling so alone and scared; feeling the fear of their parents. I finally realized that was what I needed to write about.
Fear seems to be the one common denominator in this crisis ... Continue reading Practitioner's Corner
Who I am and how I show up in the world creates a spiritual chain reaction that blesses the entire planet!

'Deepen Your Self-Love'

Despite your spiritual work, do you ever find it difficult to show yourself unconditional love?  Do “mud moments”  in your life seem to knock you off your spiritual path?  Maybe there’s unexpected negative energy? Maybe loved ones aren’t on the same path as you? Maybe your inner critic is acting tyrannically? If this sounds like you, then come journey deeper into self-love, radical acceptance and compassion at this workshop.  Zemirah will share engaging tools and practices that will inspire you to meet your negative, heart-heavy feelings head-on and to stay grounded when life seems to be darkening. Move forward saturated with grace and deeply rooted in self-love, acceptance and compassion.

A Precious Child – Fill a Backpack

A Precious Child is devoted to making a positive impact in the lives of disadvantaged and displaced children and families in Colorado by improving their quality of life. Over 180,000 children are living in poverty according to the Colorado Kids Count Report. Children living in poverty lack the basic essentials critical to academic achievement. Ensuring that children have the necessary supplies to participate in school can reduce truancy, promote learning and build positive self-esteem. The goal for 2018 is to provide more than 14,000 backpacks filled with supplies to children in need.  

Fill a Backpack needs the following items:

Backpacks…Large Erasers…Crayons …Markers…Bottled Glue & Glue Sticks…Scissors …Pencils…Colored Pencils…Folders…Spiral Notebooks…Composition Notebooks…Loose-Leaf Notebook Paper ……  Graph Paper .... Highlighters…Blue, Black, or Red Pens…Rulers…Index Cards…Pencil Bags
Monetary support ($50 provides backpack & supplies for 1 child), Make checks payable to A Precious Child.

From Reverend Jyoti:

Centers for Spiritual Living is a member of AGNT, the Association for Global New Thought, whose Mission is to support concerned and informed citizens in their emerging role as ethically motivated community leaders.

Spiritually guided activism is a term pioneered by the Association for Global New Thought and like-minded organizations to describe individuals who are spiritually mature and believe that, from this worldview, we need to take action in our communities to create positive change in this nation and beyond.  You can learn more about AGNT at their website,

The only member of the council who didn’t sign the letter is Dr. Kenn Gordon as AGNT was unable to connect with him in time and it is, of course, inappropriate to add someone’s name to a document of this magnitude without their knowledge or consent.  He has since though, expressed his support for the stand taken by AGNT.

Whatever your position on the separation of children from their families, I urge you to communicate with your senators and representatives.  It is important for know them to know where their constituents stand on this issue.
Dear Mr. President: 
We write to add our voices to those crying out for an end to the immoral practice of separating children from their families at the U.S. border. On behalf of the more than three million of our religious supporters in the United States and worldwide, we ask, as do our brothers and sisters in all faith traditions, that you use the power of your office to reverse the “zero tolerance” policy instituted by your Attorney General and that you take into account the discretion you and your administration have in protecting the well-being of children. We ask that you end this practice immediately, exercising your legal authority to end the traumatic separation that can have no end other than the destruction of families and of these children’s lives. 

We understand that illegal entry into the United States can be a misdemeanor criminal violation, one in which you can exercise discretion to determine who should be rightly charged and who, alternately, are those seeking asylum from horrific conditions that we cannot begin to imagine. We understand the U.S. law allows people with a credible fear of persecution — whether as an individual or as a member of a group — to arrive at the border in search of asylum. 

More than that, we understand that the family is the foundation of our society, indeed our world. Without the bedrock of the family, children flounder and, ultimately, they fail. A policy that separates children from their families serves, without exception, to destabilize our country, harm our neighbors and set the stage for generations of marginalized children who grow up disenfranchised, impoverished, and unnecessarily forced into the criminal justice system. 
To separate these children from their families is at a minimum short-sighted. More to the point, it is cruel, it is disgraceful and it is un-American. To use these children as pawns in a political fight is reprehensible. We implore you to end this practice immediately. 

In closing, we offer these thoughts from renowned spiritual philosopher, Dr. Ernest Holmes, spoken in 1937: 
As we enter into the spirit of the meaning of U.S. Independence Day, the day when liberty, symbolically, was conceived, the day when freedom, objectively, in our country was announced, we should think of it not merely as a political system or form of government, but we should think of it as a spiritual conception, an idea in the Divine Mind Itself, taking form in human experience; we should learn to love that liberty, and in loving the idea we should learn to tenderly and prayerfully handle the embodiment of that idea and nourish it always to greater strength; we should really conceive again the great spiritual conception of that rugged man of God who said, “...that government of the people, by the people and for the people shall not perish from the Earth.”
