Ode to the Divine

To the Divine Feminine: You are my maker, my flesh. You are my created form. You are my matter. Without you I am no thing.

To the Divine Masculine: You are my maker, my spirit. You are my focused intention. You are my will. Without you I am everything.

Together, we have birthed your Soul in the most unique expression of all that we are to celebrate the glory of En Sof. You came directly from the ensofic ray and you are funneling down and being refined in your expression of beauty endlessly.

Surrender to these forces within and without and the three becomes a unified, illuminated being of Light with total access to no-thing and everything at will.

And so it is, and so it shall be.

Connecting with God through our addictions

Did you know that one of the major reasons why we become addicted to anything, food, alcohol, drugs, sex, gambling, smoking, etc. is because that substance or behavior helps us to connect to God, or the feeling of God?It is undeniably true. We search for an addiction that will give us that "hit", that "feeling" of being one with something greater than ourselves. And every addiction known to man does exactly just that.The first or second drink for the alcoholic is literally an experience of heaven, just like the first or second drag off of a cigarette, or the first big bite of a piece of cake, or the first or second line of cocaine to the drug addict.

In each of these cases, there is a direct feeling of "ahhhhhhhhhh, now we'll be OK."As a gratefully recovering alcoholic and drug addict, I know firsthand that feeling of connecting with God through my substances of choice. I felt free, relaxed, at ease, and even confident with my wine in hand, or the lines of coke on the table. Even the thought of doing a line, would make me feel excited, ready to feel the oneness with divinity, where all is good. Pouring that glass of wine, and the feeling that came while finishing the first, and looking forward to the second, was heaven.

If I was on the beach, listening to the water, feeling the sun on my skin as it was setting, holding my wine like a sacred nectar, would signal the end of a day, time to fully let go and surrender to the "perfect " life. We all know that the perfect life is divine, divinity itself.But there is a catch. For all addicts, that "ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh " feeling was short lived. After that first piece of cake, or cigarette, the chase to find the "ahhhh", the futile chase would begin. And, it would never be found. "Chasing the dragon", a phrase used by many drug addicts, signaled the truth....we were chasing our own demise. You see, that feeling is short lived, and is a false sense of a connection that we are searching for. The second or third drink cannot bring back the original moment that we felt finally relaxed, so we would have another, and another, but to no avail.We now were addicted to chasing, but never catching, that divine feeling again.

And the race was on. A false and frustrating sense of security was being chased, as we tried to fill a void with a substance or behavior that will never ever fill it.The void we are trying to fill is the void of love, or God, or our higher power. The reason why all successful recovery programs, including the one I personally run, include a spiritual component of some kind, is because the only option for anyone struggling with any addiction is to surrender to a higher power, who some call God.While we all do find this feeling of a higher power initially through our addictions believe it or not, it will never stay.

However, when we find what we are looking for through a recovery program, that feeling can stay longer and longer. And, we won't be killing ourselves, and destroying relationships in the process.Yes, while all addictions lead us to the feeling of invincibility, divinity, or God right here on earth, thank goodness there is another way to find that same connection.If you or someone you know is struggling with any form of addiction, please contact me as soon as possible, or any other recovery program. There is so much help available, don't wait another day to find it.Slow down.

Love, peace,Rev. David

The Intenders Road Show: Living by Manifesting

Tuesday, September 29th, 6:30-9:30pm

Presented by Church of Spiritual Light
Ft. Myers, FL

The Intenders of the Highest Good Co-Founder and author Tony Burroughs will be presenting The Intenders Road Show’s latest workshop entitled Living by Manifesting at Church of Spiritual Light on September 29, 2009 in Ft. Myers, Florida.

The Intenders of the Highest Good is one of the world’s fastest growing motivational communities. Founded by four friends, including Tony, in Hawaii fifteen years ago, the Intenders combines the Law of Attraction with the power of community peer groups, and has helped thousands of people around the world realize and manifest their dreams.

Joining Tony for this event will be Tina Stober, another original founder of The Intenders, and Tina will introduce her friend, Lee Ching, who has guided the Intenders since their inception. Tony and Tina will also be accompanied by singer/songwriter, Aaron Jacobson. Aaron will open each session by singing songs from his album, Wrestling with Angels. Following the music, Tony and Tina will share intention success stories about how they have integrated the Intention Process into their lives and how it is empowering Intenders all across the globe.

The Intenders Road Show was started last year in Ashland, Oregon when Tony, Tina, and Aaron came together with several other Intenders from around the country to create their new movie, “On the Road with The Code.” This 2 DVD set is based on a present day code of conduct made up of ten Intentions that are helping people become more proficient at manifesting. Tony has written six books and produced two videos about the Law of Attraction. His most recent book, entitled “The Code: 10 Intentions for a Better World,” is published by Weiser Books and is available at bookstores everywhere. .

To register for the Living by Manifesting Workshop, please call Joanna Salerno at 239-850-3217. The cost of this event is $35 per person and everyone is welcome.

How does a Mastermind Group work and why would you want to join?

A Mastermind Group is a group of high level thinking business owners and individuals.

Did you know that a magnetized piece of iron can pick up 24 times its own weight? If you de-magnetized, that same piece of iron it cannot even pick up a feather!

YOUR MIND WORKS THE SAME WAY! Magnetized, you experience power, confidence, strength, health and attract wealth. Demagnetized your mind is full of fear, envy, doubt, and you experience poverty.


If you could change your thinking by learning from five hundred of the most successful people that have ever lived, including four U.S. Presidents, would you want to do it? What would it be worth to you?

DATES: Starts Thursday, Oct 15th at 12 PM – 1:30 PM and continuing for 13 consecutive Thursdays. (It is important to make a commitment to the entire 13 weeks, in order to create synergy with the group. Therefore the group is closed to registration after the 3rd week).
