  Rev Sandy Clark Final 8 14 2012

I love this time of the year, magic is in the air. I remember as a child being so excited about Santa’s upcoming arrival and the joy of anticipation. In addition my mother baked cookies, it seemed like every day, and the house always smelled so good!

Magic was in the air for me. Going outside at night and seeing the lights on the houses and trees made me feel like I was in fairy land (to be honest it still does!).

I was shopping earlier this month and found an elf that seems so real to me, I could not leave him at the store, plus he goes very well with a reindeer that I found last year. I decided to bring them to the office and put them on my desk since I seem to be here more than I am home, and let them share their magic with everyone who comes into the office.

elf & moose 2012

The other day I was sent the following email. I do not know the author but wanted to share this with all of you.

Recently I overheard a father and daughter in their last moments together at the airport. They had announced the departure. Standing near the security gate, they hugged and the father said, “I love you, and I wish you enough”.

 

The daughter replied, “Dad, our life together has been more than enough. Your love is all I ever needed. I wish you enough, too dad.”

 

They kissed and the daughter left. The father walked over to the window where I was seated. Standing there I could see he wanted and needed to cry. I tried not to intrude on his privacy, but he welcomed me in by asking “Did you ever say good-bye to someone knowing it would be forever?”

 

“Yes I have” I replied. “Forgive me for asking; but why is this time a forever good-bye?” “I am old, and she lives so far away. I have challenges ahead and the reality is – the next trip back will be for my funeral,” he said.

When you were saying good-bye, I heard you say, “I wish you enough.” May I ask what that means? He began to smile. “That’s a wish that has been handed down from other generations. My parents used to say it to everyone…” He paused a moment and looked up as if trying to remember it in detail, and he smiled even more. “When we said, I wish you enough we were wanting the other person to have a life filled with just enough good things to sustain them.” Then turning toward me, he shared the following as if he were reciting it from memory.

 

I wish you enough sun to keep your attitude bright no matter how gray the day may appear.

I wish you enough rain to appreciate the sun even more.

I wish you enough happiness to keep your spirit alive and everlasting.

I wish you enough pain so that even the smallest of joys in life may appear bigger.

I wish you enough gain to satisfy your wanting.

I wish you enough loss to appreciate all that you possess.

I wish you enough hellos to get you through the final good-bye.

 

He then began to cry and walked away.

My gift to you is I wish you enough as as we enter this Holiday Season.

With Light and Love,

Sandy

Rev Eve Wilson Oct 2012A Foundation for LoveBy Reverend Eve Wilson

Reprinted with permission from Body Mind Spirit Guide Magazinewww.bodymindspiritguide.com

Seek love first within your own heart. Find it in the little things in your days and nights. Find it in the bathroom mirror, when you look into your own eyes and remember that the eternal and divine is within you and within everything.

Love is a way of being and a way of interacting with life, where you make every act significant and every moment a gift to the creator.

If God lived within you (and he/she does) what would God do today? How would he/she respond to your circumstances?

Love yourself when you are angry because anger is fear that we aren’t loved and safe. So, open to that place within yourself where you recognize that your fear is a child and love yourself where you are small and wounded. Forgive yourself for being unkind when you feel this way. You are precious and divine.

Give thanks for the things in life that stress you out, they are your greatest teachers. They ask you to find muscles and courage and power that you didn’t believe you owned. Being God in human form, all things exist within you in potential, but you may need to work harder to realize some gifts that you haven’t already mastered.

Remember that you are eternal and unbreakable and a one of a kind gift of the creator.

Listen to the still, small voice within. If it tells you that something is not what it seems, honor your inner wisdom. If it seems too good to be true, give it time, wait for it to reveal itself fully. If it feels right, but looks wrong, investigate further and ask – is this perhaps a step in the right direction, but perhaps not what I ultimately desire? Don’t believe your eyes and your ears if your inner self tells you otherwise. Within you is the ability to know the truth, even though you don’t know how you know. Trust this; it is your most precious gift. Pay attention.

You are a precious gift of the divine and every moment, every circumstance, every act is an opportunity to master the gift that is your life. Be thankful for that. It is only through living through the days and nights of our lives that we realize the innate power that we possess.

Being yourself is the only opportunity you have to know God. If you try to be what someone else wants you to be, if you judge yourself for being different, you miss the point and you waste your time. You are exactly perfect in each moment, exactly as you are. Who you are right now is the foundation for who you will be tomorrow. You don’t have to be the pinnacle of perfection in an ultimate sense. Build on what is genuine and you will find fulfillment, joy and love.

janet pharesMusic: What is Moving and Shaking in Your World?By Reverend Janet Phares

Recorded history, as well as ancient archeological acoustical evidence, indicates that music has played a spiritual role in civilizations throughout the world. There may be a multitude of reasons for humanities interest in music, for example curiosity must have happened when certain vibrations were made and intense feelings were stimulated; the euphoria that is experienced which activated altered states of consciousness and yet others have seen miracles of healing take place during certain musical ceremonies. Current research is showing that the ancients knew a lot about vibrations and the effects on the human consciousness and body. One thing for sure music creates vibrations that effect humans spiritually, as well as physically.

What is Music?

According to Hazrat Inayat Khan in his book The Mysticism of Sound and Music, he states:

According to the esoteric standpoint, music is the beginning and end of the universe. All actions and movements made in the visible and invisible world are musical. That is: they are made up of vibrations pertaining to a certain plane of existence. 1

Further into Khan’s book he talks about:

“…the origin of the whole creation is in movement, in other words: in vibration. It is this original state of the existence of life which is called in the ancient tradition sound, or the word. The first manifestation of this sound is therefore audible, the next manifestation visible. In the forms of expression of life, life has expressed itself first as sound, next as light. This is supported by the Bible where it is said that first was the word, and then came light. Again one finds in a Sura of the Qur’an: ‘God is the light of the heaven and the earth’.2

According to the Sanskrit thinkers there are three aspects of music: singing, playing and dancing. All three represent rhythm, and all three represent tone in some form or other. And what is the effect of music? The effect of music is to regularize the rhythm and to tune a person to the music that is being performed…It is the tone of that music which tunes the soul, and raises it above the depression and despair of everyday life in this world. If one knew what rhythm is needed for a particular individual in his trouble and despair, what tone is needed, and to what tone that person’s soul should be raised, then one could heal a person with music…There was a time in India when music was used for healing. It was healing for the mind, for the character, and healing for the soul. For it is health of the soul that brings health to the physical body, but healing of the physical body does not always help the soul…3

There is an ancient Hermetic Principle which states that the universe is nothing but vibrations. Many ancient Mystery Schools stressed the importance of color and sound and training the senses to feel subtle vibrations of the universe. This is currently active in Mystery Schools today.

The Use of Spiritual Music throughout Human History

Current research in acoustical archeology is realizing that ancient temples were built with sound vibrational chambers; many made with sacred geometry connected to the dimensions of the human body. Some sound chambers when activated bring an individual into an altered state very rapidly, a state in which healing and divine contact can be experienced. Within these chambers all vibrations interact with each other and develop resonant frequencies. Many researchers have discovered that every organ, bone and tissue in our body has its own separate resonant frequency. Together they make up a composite frequency, a harmonic that is our own personal vibratory signature. This signature encircles our whole body as a field, which is called an aura.

The different rhythms of the body may be changed through sound. This is known as entrainment. This involves the ability of one powerful rhythmic vibration to change a less powerful rhythmic vibration and eventually synchronize their rhythms and merge together creating a different sound.

Indigenous civilizations from past to present have utilized drumming, singing and dancing in their sacred ceremonies. Through sound, such as chanting, overtone singing, drumming and fluting it is possible to change the rhythmic pattern of our brain waves, as well as our heart beat and respiration.

Rev Jack Schwartz

Always

By Reverend Jack Schwarz

I want to lay hold of rainbow’s end,

and track it upward over the bend

to where its magical colors blend.

In the sheen of the infinite sea

to always have faith in thee.

I want to see in the violet eyes

the mystic glory of sunset skies,

and share the ages’ stark surprise,

such health it then would be,

for always there for me to see.

I want to know whence truth is sown,

from what fair flower is beauty blown,

where justice build her royal throne.

For Universal sway

truth always is there to stay.

And who it is that lights the star,

the planets – Venus, Neptune, Mars.

Who lifts the night’s strong prison bars,

let’s in the golden day,

be it so always, as it may.

I want to win my heart this world,

Its every banner and flag unfurled.

As from the Creator’s hand it whirled

on its ageless quest,

for always to show its best.

Share the passion of human-kind,

the power of will and mind,

delve to life’s inmost realms to find,

their light and Love,

as is always and always in the above.

Reverend Jack Schwarz – humanitarian, educator, philosopher, naturopath, also known as legendary pointrider and master, was the first holistic health educator for integrating the whole person – body, brain, mind, and spirit.

 About UCM 

UCM was founded as a church in which members are encouraged to develop and exercise their spiritual powers. We discourage adherence to rigid dogmas and tenets, believing that each person must find and travel his/her own path in the Light, and that no single set of fixed rules is applicable to everyone in their spiritual quest.

From its earliest years, UCM has emphasized spiritual healing, prophecy and demonstrations of the continuity of life beyond the transition commonly called “death”. As we move closer to world unity and a new age of Universal Brotherhood and Sisterhood, UCM is now placing greater attention upon training and developing the spiritual powers of its ministers to bring us into this new “Golden Age”.
