Thanksgiving Feast & Giveaway Ceremony 2014

Thursday, November 27, 2014
Thanksgiving Day - 3-7pm
Feast begins at 3pm
Giveaway Ceremony begins at 5pm

Church of Spiritual Light presents the 2014 Sixth Annual Thanksgiving Feast and Giveaway Ceremony. Please bring your favorite holiday dish to share, as well as a small gift which will be given away to honor a very special sacred ancient ritual to show gratitude for our blessings. The gift can be anything that has meaning to you, including feathers, stones, figurines or sacred objects. In order to honor the energy it should be something that you love and not a cast off item.

The potlatch is a festival or ceremony practiced among Indigenous peoples of the Pacific Northwest most prominently. At these gatherings a family or leader hosts guests in their family's house and hold a feast for their guests. The main purpose of the potlatch is the re-distribution and reciprocity of wealth. The word potlatch comes from the Chinook jargon, meaning "to give away" or "a gift".

Help us coordinate our feast and call Rev. Renee at 239-560-6314 or facebook message. Everyone is welcome!

NOVEMBER 2014: If Not You... then Who?

"It is not enough to stare up the steps, we must step up the stairs.” ~ Vaclav Havel

Every person who is able to bring in the light of their soul is a portal of power to the earth, to each other, and to the cosmos. Yet, in the course of a spiritual journey there can be quite an extended period of going within. The soul is like a butterfly, as it goes through the various stages of evolution... from egg, to caterpillar, to chrysalis to full grown butterfly. Some say that the butterfly looks nothing like it began. But that's not entirely true. A butterfly still has a tubular body... but it becomes streamlined.... and has legs... and antenna... and most especially WINGS!

"Let your first hour set the theme of success and positive action that is certain to echo through your entire day. Today will never happen again." Og Mandino

So what does that mean to a soul. Well, quite clearly it's a teaching... the soul's emergence heralds a streamlined and drastically changed alchemized body, at the cellular level. The imaginal cells in the body evolve us through a deeply internal, and therefore unseen to the external world, process. But change is certainly occurring. That is why it is so very helpful and even critical to be in true community and spiritual partnership. 

"The best-known cure for the fear of failure is action – that's right, action. The aspect of taking action helps to quiet nerves and can lead to even minor accomplishments." Byron Pulsifer

Yet, it is during our most transformative stages that we must gather all of our energy to ourselves. This may appear selfish. And sometimes you, and you alone know your own heart and your motivations. It can be during this time that you are "earning" your wings. For true service is not just do-gooding, not just random activity... not even just only random acts of kindness. Those things should, would, could be ordinary everyday ways of being in Shambala... or heaven on earth. But your true service is the expression of your soul in the physical. and is unique to you... but cannot be activated in isolation. It is what will ultimately balance the masculine and feminine energies in your life!

"You're a doer, because you're prepared to make the necessary effort to translate your dream into action." Paul McCabe 

The perfect action of your being, expressing as the soul, the light of the soul shining outward the mind of God and the love of the Goddess This is pure abundance of all things.

“I know that I have the ability to achieve the object of my Definite Purpose in life, therefore, I demand of myself persistent, continuous action toward its attainment, and I here and now promise to render such action.” ~ Napoleon Hill
