Atlanta Minister reflects on the passing of his “mom” – Louise Hay

By | Affirmation, Current Events, Eulogy, Louise Hay, Love, New Thought, Religious Science, Science of Mind, Spirituality, Ty Andrews | No Comments

I was asked to write something for the media regarding the passing of my dear mentor Louise Hay. Their headline made me tear up because in all honesty she was an incredible mother figure to me. She helped birth within me a new paradigm of spiritual understanding and decades later officiated and gave me away in marriage to my husband Ty Andrews.  Below is my attempt to encapsulate the boundless nature of an icon. There are countless stories to match the countless works of good she personally shared with me and publicly with the world. I’m positive that as time…

Today’s Chorus

By | David Ault, Politics, Consciousness, Solution, Love, Inner Guidance, Greek Chorus | No Comments

In ancient Greek tragedies there was a chorus of actors whose role it was to comment on the action of the play. The intent of the Greek chorus was to offer summaries of the play to the audience and help move the narrative forward. Today, it seems this Greek chorus model of commentary is having a resurgence. With 24 hour news stations, social media outlets and radio talk shows constantly commenting, the modern tragedies surrounding our nation’s governance and well being seem futile. One has to diligently search to find credible unbiased resources today. Most of today’s ‘choruses’ are nothing more…

On Being A Sentinel

By | Awareness, Charlottesville, David Ault, Oneness, Politics, Spirituality | No Comments

The job of a sentinel is to stand and keep watch. Hyper vigilance and keen awareness are not only essential but are a part of the sentinel’s duty. No distractions. Stay awake. With this position there is no room for privileged thoughts of absention and circumventing. You are there to safeguard and protect. When you professed your belief in oneness, you became a spiritual sentinel. The oppressive bias and elitist ignorance that is the core of racism has long attacked those who have dared to declare their independence. The final hour of that abusive privilege is here and there is no…

Pin The Tail On The Donkey

By | Awareness, Divine Order, Intentional Living, New Thought | No Comments

Remember this game – Pin the tail on the donkey? This childhood birthday activity required us to be spun around, blindfolded, leaving us to dizzily make an attempt to pin a paper tail on the proper location of the donkey poster while navigating through darkness. The one who came closest to pinning it in the proper anatomical location won. At times it seems we can’t help ourselves. We still play it. Our physical nature continues pinning blame on something or someone on a ‘donkey’ of worldly effect. We have been blindly spun and tossed by winds of irrational opinion, raised…

If You’ve Never Failed You’ve Never Tried Anything New

By | Blog, Risks, Success | No Comments

This was the title of a slideshow featuring dozens of famous people, living and deceased, who moved beyond their seeming insurmountable mishaps and setbacks towards the achievement of odds-defying accomplishments and groundbreaking achievements. Albert Einstein said it this way, “Anyone who has never made a mistake, has never tried anything new.” We are not born with a tentative stride. In our infancy, we were fearless as we ceaselessly pulled ourselves to stand. We scrambled across the floor with innate curiosity and began running with reckless abandon. Acquired wisdom taught us to pay heed to the reckless part but it did…

Keep Planting Seeds

By | Faith, Happiness, Success | No Comments

With monumental events happening in our world every day, I cannot help but reflect on our forebears who carried the same desire and intent within their hearts that we carry. Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness is nothing new, but a longing as ancient as consciousness. And many, named and unnamed have walked the trails, tilled the soil, and excavated the physical and metaphorical rubble away from our landscape in order that those things might find breath. There is a profound Zen proverb that says the seed never sees the flower.   Far too many times we see how…

Determined Imagination

By | Blog, Imagination, Neville Goddard | No Comments

The great metaphysical writer and teacher Neville Goddard shared, “Determined imagination, thinking from the end, is the beginning of all miracles.” ‘Thinking from the end’  is spending voluminous time in the mental contemplation of demonstration. It is the practice of repetitively invoking the feeling nature of what it would be like to have a particular desire already in form. We do this everyday.  Often our repetitive mental imagery is on the undesirable. When this occurs, we are operating as a product of race thought accompanied by mass, unconscious habits. Determined imagination, as described by Neville, is the conscious use of our…

The Secret Of Success

By | Blog, Success | No Comments

The secret of success is constancy to purpose. ~ Benjamin Disraeli When I search for the pinnacle of definitions for the word success, I abandon all ties to materialism and end up with an answer that tells how all genuine success is a true understanding of oneself and a belief that your worth, abilities and gifts are both invaluable and necessary. When I search for the pinnacle of definitions for the word purpose, I abandon all ties to vocational skills and titles and believe it to be found in the ancient Greek aphorism ‘know thyself’. Take those definitions, rework Disraeli’s quote, and you…

Your Creativity Matters

By | Blog, Creativity | No Comments

When describing the Universe, Intelligence, God or even ourselves from a spiritual viewpoint, we use the word creative. We are the self contemplation of a creative Intelligence therefore we are by our very nature creative beings. What does that mean? Our entire spiritual and physical coding is an energy system of creative ideas longing to be explored and expressed. And, since energy is never stagnant, we are never void of an infinite pool of ideas longing for an outlet. Quite simply, you and I are here to create.  We are walking, breathing vessels of talent. Everyone is talented. Whether telling…

Living Out Loud

By | Bold Living, Living Out Loud, People Pleasing, Trust | No Comments

The phrase living out loud often describes a person who lives their code of conduct in a transparent manner. Writer Clarence Budington Kelland penned, “He didn’t tell me how to live; he lived and let me watch him do it.” Spiritually speaking, living out loud suggests using everyday life as a platform to prove the principle of spiritual law – to take a perceived limitation and transform it into a new standard of accomplishment – to take a desire and go after it with intention and purpose regardless of any ‘mess among the mystery’ that may be unearthed in the…
