March is here! Spring is undoubtedly on her way. We considered and talked about refraining from even mentioning Covid and Covid’s influence in our daily existence. And then we acknowledged how important it is to remember our year’s theme “Spirit in Action In Times Such As These”. It is our mantra. It is also our inspiration.
It is said that the meteorological beginning of spring occurs on the first day of March. It provides possibilities of time to take action on our thoughts and inspirations. It is a time of rebirth, advancing, and stepping forward into our future with promises of new life and brilliance of colour and sunshine!
“There is a morning inside you waiting to burst open into light”. ~ Rumi
Without focussing on religious context then, seeking spirit in action leads us to consider that there is a force greater than ourselves even in times such as these. Exploring our own spiritual growth must be a daily practise in finding faith. We become both teachers and students, givers and takers as we continue to seek greater compassion for ourselves and for others.
How do you find brilliance of colour and rays of sunshine! Perhaps music is one of your passions through which you journey into the spiritual realm. Maybe it’s reading books and having conversation referring to others’ writing? Perhaps it’s something as simple as sharing other people’s rituals and practises and becoming more familiar with what works for others? “Each of us is as full of the Spirit as we really want to be”. J. Oswald Sanders
“Spiritual growth is not like fast food,” says Rabbi Zalman Schacter-Shalomiq.
‘It takes time for it’s roots to grow and that requires us to be receptive and patient.”
So, come and spend time with us as much as you like and also please, don’t hesitate to seek out your own spiritual possibilities. Go right to our website to discover what GES has to offer this month.
“Happiness cannot be traveled to, owned, earned, worn or consumed. Happiness is the spiritual experience of living every minute with love, grace and gratitude.” Dennis Waitley
