Feast Day of Smyrna

In the midst of all of the holidays at the end of the year, sometimes it is good to have a small break. December 29th is the day of temperance in accordance with the Feast Day of Smyrna. It is a day for people to relax and to find other ways to get through the holiday season. It does not mean that you have to give something up forever, but giving something up for a day that would otherwise be a temptation for you would be a good thing. It…

The Feast Day of Ephesus takes place on January 18th and it is widely known as the day of giving.

Teachings of the West 3

We are born twice. We are born in the body when we are physically born, but we are born in the spirit when we take the steps of purification. This is something that we cannot do when we have no agency to do so. We need to decide for ourselves what is best for our spirituality. We need to make all of these decisions from the beginning, even when we are born. It is impossible to know what we are getting into when we are so young. As parents, it…

Ephesus 1

There are a lot of people who will reveal themselves to be influential in our life. In order for us to be able to gain wisdom, we need to go through life and live it to the fullest. We need to be able to experience events and meet people who may not always have the best influence on our life. There are a lot of things that we can learn from the people that come and go throughout our life. We should not get rid of these people as if…

Knowledge 11

Wisdom is the key to knowledge that we are all searching for in life. While knowledge is important to gain in the world, wisdom is more significant and more important to gain and it is only gained through experience. There is a lot to be gained by the events that we encounter and the people that we meet and have in our life. We should not take these things for granted. We need to make sure that we understand the importance of having wisdom in addition to knowledge. Wisdom is…

Cycle A Week 6

Book of Knowledge pg 224-225 (Knowledge 11: 1-16 – page 186) Happy are those who seek and receive wisdom. You will ponder the ways and you will understand wisdom.

You are one with the wisdom, and you take refuge in the wisdom. Whoever has the seventh gift will have the greatest wisdom.…

The Text

There are many people in the world who are not confrontational at all. There are a lot of problems and misunderstandings that come about from trying to resolve issues over text, phone calls, and messages and not in person. I believe that many more things should be resolved in person and it is something that is highly promoted. Telling people off through text is not something that should be done. It is the culmination of things that built up over texts and messaging and not something that should be done…

Mantras

We talk about a lot of things in this philosophy. However, by and large we are a new age philosophy and we share a lot of things in common belief wise with those other philosophies. There are a lot of things in the New Age movement that have a lot of truth to them, but there are also a lot of things that are not true at all. These things manage to come into the forefront as pseudoscience. Here is the thing about religion and science… they are not meant…

In The Background

Many people who are in our life who are influential are those who are in the forefront of our life, however, we do not often think about the influential people in our life who stay in the background. They can be just as influential, if not more, than those who are in the forefront. This is something that I learned with Sarah and Nicole as opposed to the first two who have been very involved in the foreground. There are many times in life where we are not thinking about…
