Your Soul Conspires to Grow You - Rev Blair Tabor - 07-23-2017

Your Soul Conspires to Grow You”

 

Christmas in July

Though times grow us.

 

Aldous Huxley – human mind is a reducing  valve for the Mind at Large

 – OR it is   evolving to open more and more!

 

Your Soul Conspires to Grow You”  (Making Friends with Conflict)

 

Scripture Gospel of Thomas #70  “Jesus said, ‘If you bring forth what is within you, what you bring forth will save you. If you do not bring forth what is within you, what you do not bring forth will destroy you."

 

Mind Set: ready to grow

K.S. “The energies of your life converge for your growth.’”

  

MAKE FRIENDS WITH CONFLICT

Dance of polarities

 Conflict = an interference pattern of

   energies: spiritual-human    ASL

 

Everything is moving/changing: coming into existence, developing, decaying, going out of existence I of the Storm page 55

When change or movement is resisted OR when energy patterns are incoherent, shock waves are created IoS 56

Conflict comes from us IoS p 64

 

  Avoiding conflict only makes things worse.

     “The soul seeks to move [us] into those areas of life where our full potential has yet to be discerned,”  I of the Storm, page 65

Affirmation “Grounded in oneness, I am safe as I embrace conflict.”

Results: Less stressed w/change

Authentic being – conscious doing

 

AUTHENTIC BEING

Dynamic tension: humanness & spiritual nature

 

Feel fear & stay connected to center IoS 53

     Fear forces action. 

     Centeredness reveals choices. -> Joseph

     Speak your truth. – Compass Communication

    Emotions point to needs

    Regrets = not being authentic

D.W. 7-22-17 Authentic

 

Conspire = breathe together

Rincon: An interior corner; a nook

“I am poised and centered in the Christ Mind.  Nothing can disturb the calm peace... 

Ask: who am I being – WWJD: what is my purpose/function here?

 

CONSCIOUS DOING

Live from authenticity

IoS p 62-62 Story unhappy @ work

 

Play it safe OR do what we are called to do?

We give up when things get hard

? Cons doing OR conditional doing?

 

     Connected to your intention to serve God

     Related to sp. Purpose & living that purp

     Fulfill yourself as an expression of God. 

From Avoid -> stop, breathe, ask, act

 

K.S. “The energies of your life converge for your growth.’”

“Live serene in 2017!”
