Wisdom Group

This coming Tuesday evening we will be contemplating the quote:
"The way to transform what you believe about yourself is to unlearn what you have learned.
When you unlearn, your faith returns to you, your personal power increases, and you can invest your faith in new beliefs."
from the book, Voice of Knowledge by Don Miguel Ruiz

Thursday afternoon, we will discuss the various responses to the question:
"How do we live our lives without expectations and at the same time, create/dream our personal dream?"

peace and love

This Week's Topics

This Tuesday evening, the moderator chose the topic, "Forgiveness";
list 5 ways/incidents in which you forgive yourself and list 5 ways/incidents in which you forgive others. One may or may not share these with the group.

On Thursday afternoon, the moderator chose a quote from the book, The Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz:
"Be Impeccable With Your Word.
When you hear an opinion and believe it, you make an agreement and it becomes part of your belief system. The only thing that can break this agreement is to make a new one based on truth. Only the truth has the power to set you free."

Vernal Equinox

Today is the Vernal Equinox.
I chose this as the topic of the Wisdom Group Tonight. This ties in with the weekend I just had....the Spring Celebration... a chance for renewal, for transformation.
I felt very blessed because I got to meet my very first blog friend in person. She spontaneously showed up for the Wisdom Group.
Thankyou Joy Living! You renewed my faith in Magic.
After the meeting we all went down to the Stone Table and drummed, sang songs and declared our intentions for the new Spring.

More Oran Mor

Oran Mor, The Great Song.....the sound of the universe, the song that is always singing.....and we can join in anytime.
This weekend I helped arrange a Spring Celebration. We will gather for the weekend, using music, art and sounds to communicate.
This will be an opportunity to use other means besides our words to Express.
On Friday afternoon, we are going to a cave that I "discovered" on a hike to the river. We will bring candles and blankets and our willingness to explore ourselves.

"Where I sit is Holy,
Holy is the ground.
Forest, mountain, river
Listen to the sound.
Great Spirit circling,
Circling all around"

Thoughts and Suggestions

This week, we will gather on Tuesday evening and contemplate the end of the "Circle of Fire" prayer (that Don Miguel Ruiz wrote as a tool to access the dream of heaven on earth.)

"We will respect all creation
As the symbol of our love communion with the one who created us
to the eternal happiness of humanity."

The next Wisdom Group will be held on Thursday afternoon of the following week. the moderator chose the topic:

"Imagine living your life without being afraid to take a risk and explore life.
Imagine what your life would be like if you were not afraid to lose anything."

She chose a poem to introduce the subject:

"I would not want all my words to parade around this world in pretty constumes, so I will tell you something of the barroom view of love,

Love is grabbing hold of the Great Lion's mane, and wrestling and rolling deep into existence while the Beloved gets rough and begins to maul you alive.

True love, my dear, is putting an iron clad grip upon the sore,
swollen balls of a Divine Rogue Elephant and not having the good fortune to die!"

-Hafiz (1320-1389)

The Four Agreement Wisdom Group Topics

This Tuesday , March 6th, the topic is
"In remembering not to take things personally, we are free to not believe anyone, including ourselves. Reducing personal importance is one of the most important steps on our path to freedom."

On Thursday, Margaret-Heather picked a card from the "Voice of Knowledge" deck with the quote by Don Miguel Ruiz;
"I don't take anything personally.
I am a secondary character in other people's stories. I know that whatever people say about me is just a projection of their image of me. It has nothing to do with me."

peace and love,
