April: Fresh Awakening

“New Life Awakening”

by Dr. Larry Morris

Spring is a time to celebrate and recharge our spiritual batteries! The winter months of cold weather, short days and long nights are behind us. Already we can feel the gentle, joyous warmth of spring in the air quickening us. Already we think of nature awakening from its winter slumbers. Inwardly, spiritually, we too can feel new life awakening within our hearts, our minds and our bodies. Now is a perfect time to plant spiritual seeds in our hearts which will bear the fruit of self-realization and soul-fulfillment in their time. Let's decide to accept a larger life now. Let's decide this spring to become full citizens of the cosmos and take our place in the Divine Scheme of the Universe. Change is expensive. When we begin to change some part of ourselves or some aspect of our lives, we begin to realize the cost, and many times we question whether it's worth it. Yet our whole life is change, and many times the deeper the change the deeper is the corresponding fulfillment.

“Making Two Into One”

by DR. Larry Morris

A businessman once said to a sage, "My job in life is taking one thing and making of it two.” The sage replied, "My job in life is making one out of two.” Like the sage, can we, when we are confronted by division or duality, see the unity within the situation? Often we go around expecting conflict and discord from people or situations in our lives. But there is always a point where we can recognize a basic harmony in any situation. We may have to change our viewpoint from two-ness or duality and adopt a perspective of oneness before the situation will reveal its inherent harmony and order to us. We can live from One Presence and find that our life is filled with peace now.
