Most of us want to make things better. If only we knew what we could do specifically to make the world a better place — for everyone. Like most challenges, it requires a mental stretching of one’s mind just to ponder the idea. Does anyone feel equipped to deal with a purpose like that? “Gee, I think I’ll have my coffee this morning, get dressed, and just go out into the world and make it better for everyone — yep, that’s what I’ll do.”
Who has that map? Where do you start? The desire is in each of us. We all want to see the end of war, starvation, poverty, political division, violence, etc. The list is endless. Look deep enough in your heart and accept the possibility that by changing one thought, one belief about a person or situation, your whole life will change. Start today by forgiving yourself for the past. Forgiveness is the path to freedom.
Spirit knows no limitation. “It” knows of ways that we know not. Rarely can we explain the wonders of life, how things happen, or why things happen. We say that we live in a perfect Universe. There is perfect balance and divine order. We have to believe this in order to make a difference, to have a purpose. Start by forgiving yourself and changing just one thought a day. You’ll be amazed at the results! Make this your Easter gift to yourself and to the world.
Join us every Sunday morning at 11 a.m. at The Colony Theatre located at 555 N. Third St. in Burbank.
The value in coming on Sunday is that not only do you get the benefit of being there on that particular Sunday in real time; more importantly, Sunday services sort of “tee “ you up for the following week. The point-of-difference is that people aren’t just participating in a liturgical service, but are sent away with thought-provoking and action-oriented energy. I have benefited a lot from coming on Sunday and folks that have joined me have all enjoyed it, too. The treats they serve after are tasty, the live band is great, there is plenty of free, covered parking, and you are out of there in an hour feeling good.
