“People hurt you. God will heal you. People humiliate you. God will magnify you. People judge you. God will justify you. People hate you. God will LOVE you.” ~ Author Unknown
~ ~ ~ ~ ~
“Life laughs at you when you are unhappy ….. Life smiles at you when you are happy ….. But life salutes you when you make others happy.” ~Charlie Chaplin
~ ~ ~ ~ ~
Love is a force of nature. However much we may want to, we can not command, demand, or disappear love, any more than we can command the moon and the stars and the wind and the rain to come and go according to our whims. We may have some limited ability to change the weather, but we do so at the risk of upsetting an ecological balance we don’t fully understand. Similarly, we can stage a seduction or mount a courtship, but the result is more likely to be infatuation, or two illusions dancing together, than love.
~ ~ ~ ~ ~
Love is bigger than you are. You can invite love, but you cannot dictate how, when, and where love expresses itself. You can choose to surrender to love, or not, but in the end love strikes like lightening, unpredictable and irrefutable. You can even find yourself loving people you don’t like at all. Love does not come with conditions, stipulations, addendums, or codes. Like the sun, love radiates independently of our fears and desires.
~ ~ ~ ~ ~
Love cannot be turned on as a reward. It cannot be turned off as a punishment. Only something else pretending to be love can be used as a lure, as a hook, for bait and switch, imitated, insinuated, but the real deal can never be delivered if it doesn’t spring freely from the heart.
~ ~ ~ ~ ~
This doesn’t mean that love allows destructive and abusive behaviors to go unchecked. Love speaks out for justice and protests when harm is being done. Love points out the consequences of hurting oneself or others. Love allows room for anger, grief, or pain to be expressed and released. But love does not threaten to withhold itself if it doesn’t get what it wants. Love does not say, directly or indirectly, “If you are a bad boy, Mommy won’t love you any more.” Love does not say, “Daddy’s little girl doesn’t do that.” Love does not say, “If you want to be loved you must be nice, or do what I want, or never love anyone else, or promise you’ll never leave me.”
~ ~ ~ ~ ~
Love cares what becomes of you because love knows that we are all interconnected. Love is inherently compassionate and empathic. Love knows that the “other” is also oneself. This is the true nature of love and love itself can not be manipulated or restrained. Love honors the sovereignty of each soul. Love is its own law.

Spread love everywhere you go:  first of all in your own house. Give love to your children, to your wife or husband, to a next door neighbor. Let no one ever come to you without leaving better or happier. Be the living expression of God’s kindness; kindness in your face, kindness in your eyes, kindness in your smile; kindness in your warm greeting.  Mother Teresa

AFFIRMATION 

Every day I Love Without Limits

This Sunday at CCL
 “Love Without Limits”
with Rev. Doti Boon
Quite often when I am giving a sermon I talk about how we should emulate God and “Love Without Limits.” The Mother/Father God is not limiting but endless. Spirit is relentless – always there, never far away and completely within our ability to love. Sometimes people feel that this spiritual energy will abandon them if they aren’t “perfect.” We are always perfect in the eyes of the Mother/Father God. This seems difficult for many folks to understand and even more difficult to believe. Join Rev. Doti this Sunday as she awakens you to the spirit that loves you “no matter what.”

 

Love Without Limits

Some pretty good rules to live by, written by Regina Brett, 90 years old, of the Plain Dealer, Cleveland , Ohio. “To celebrate growing older, I once wrote the 49 lessons life taught me. It is the most requested column I’ve ever written.”  My odometer rolled over to 90 in August, so here is the column:

  1. Life isn’t fair, but it’s still good.
  2. When in doubt, just take the next small step.
  3. Life is too short – enjoy it.
  4. Pay off your credit cards every month
  5. You don’t have to win every argument. Stay true to yourself.
  6. Cry with someone. It’s more healing than crying alone.
  7. It’s OK to get angry with God. He can take it.
  8. Start saving for retirement with your first paycheck.
  9. When it comes to chocolate, resistance is futile.
  10. Make peace with your past so it won’t screw up the present.
  11. It’s OK to let your children see you cry.
  12. Don’t compare your life to others’. You have no idea what their journey is all about.
  13. If a relationship has to be a secret, you shouldn’t be in it.
  14. Everything can change in the blink of an eye. But don’t worry; God never blinks.
  15. Life is too short for long pity parties. Get busy living, or get busy dying.
  16. You can get through anything if you stay put in today.
  17. A writer writes. If you want to be a writer, write.
  18. It’s never too late to have a happy childhood. But the second one is up to you and no one else.
  19. When it comes to going after what you love in life, don’t take no for an answer.
  20. Burn the candles, use the nice sheets, wear the fancy lingerie. Don’t save it for a special occasion. Today is special.
  21. Over prepare, then go with the flow.
  22. Be eccentric now. Don’t wait for old age to wear purple.
  23. The most important sex organ is the brain.
  24. No one is in charge of your happiness except you.
  25. Frame every so-called disaster with these words: “In five years, will this matter?”
  26. Always choose life.
  27. Forgive everyone everything.
  28. What other people think of you is none of your business.
  29. Time heals almost everything. Give time time.
  30. However good or bad a situation is, it will change.
  31. Your job won’t take care of you when you are sick. Your friends will. Stay in touch.
  32. Believe in miracles.
  33. God loves you because of who God is, not because of anything you did or didn’t do.
  34. Whatever doesn’t kill you really does make you stronger.
  35. Growing old beats the alternative – dying young.
  36. Your children get only one childhood. Make it memorable.
  37. Read the Psalms. They cover every human emotion.
  38. Get outside every day. Miracles are waiting everywhere.
  39. If we all threw our problems in a pile and saw everyone else’s, we’d grab ours back.
  40. Don’t audit life. Show up and make the most of it now.
  41. Get rid of anything that isn’t useful, beautiful or joyful.
  42. All that truly matters in the end is that you loved.
  43. Envy is a waste of time. You already have all you need.
  44. The best is yet to come.
  45. No matter how you feel, get up, dress up and show up.
  46. Take a deep breath. It calms the mind.
  47. If you don’t ask, you don’t get.
  48. Yield.
  49. Life isn’t tied with a bow, but it’s still a gift.

HUMOR:

For our pastor’s 50th birthday, the congregation decided to give him a new suit. He was so touched by the gift that the following Sunday he stood before everyone and, with tears in his eyes, announced, “Today I am preaching to you in my birthday suit.”
~ ~ ~ ~
A friend was in front of me coming out of church one day, and the preacher was standing at the door as he always is to shake hands. He grabbed my friend by the hand and pulled him aside.
The Pastor said to him, “You need to join the Army of the Lord!”
My friend replied, “I’m already in the Army of the Lord, Pastor.”
Pastor questioned, “How come I don’t see you except at Christmas and Easter?”
He whispered back, “Shhhh, I’m in the secret service.”
~ ~ ~ ~
The two thousand member Baptist church was filled to overflowing capacity one Sundaymorning. The preacher was ready to start the sermon when two men, dressed in long black coats and black hats entered thru the rear of the church.
One of the two men walked to the middle of the church while the other stayed at the back of the church. They both then reached under their coats and withdrew automatic weapons.
The one in the middle announced, “Everyone willing to take a bullet for Jesus stay in your seats!”
Naturally, the pews emptied, followed by the choir. The deacons ran out the door, followed by the choir director and the assistant pastor.
After a few moments, there were about twenty people left sitting in the church. The preacher was holding steady in the pulpit.
The men put their weapons away and said, gently, to the preacher, “All right, pastor, the hypocrites are gone now. You may begin the service.”

This Sunday at CCL
 “UCM”
UCM Trustees speaking after annual meetiucm symbolng. Featuring comments and vision from entire UCM Board including newly elected trustees.

What is the Universal Church of the Master?

     This coming Saturday, May 18th, starting at 1:00the Universal Church of the Master will be holding their annual meeting at our Center.  As many of you are aware, UCM is the parent church for the Center for Creative Living and we are excited to be hosting this annual meeting.
Besides the annual meeting the UCM President Reverend Sandy Clark has announced her upcoming retirement and this meeting will be her last as officiator at the Annual Meeting. I know she would love to have you there.
In fact all of the Board of trustees, including the two new Trustees and committee chairs would love to have you there. This is an excellent opportunity to watch the Universal Church of the Master in action as the Board discusses the future plans of the church.
The meeting will be initiated with a presentation by Reverend Carole Fitzgerald who will be updating us on “Ceremonies”, a specialty of her ministerial practice.
There will be a wonderful Silent Auction full of treasures donated by our community, things like certificates for readings, healings, get-a-ways and restaurants, multiple baskets of special items will also be available. Come and bid often for your enjoyment and the financial health of UCM.
The conference will continue on Sunday the 19th of May as I have invited the UCM Board to speak at our Sunday Celebration on their vision of UCM going forward. That service will be followed by a white elephant sale of spiritual and decorative items which will also benefit UCM.
Many folks ask me what the Center for Creative Living is based upon. We are a charter of UCM which was founded in 1908 as a spiritualist church. It was founded as a church in which members are encouraged to develop and exercise their spiritual gifts. They 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. I appreciate one of their most important quotes:

“I love you, my brother, whoever you are – whether you worship in your church, kneel in your temple or pray in your mosque. You and I are children of One Faith, for the diverse paths of religion are fingers of the loving hand of One Supreme Being, and hand extended to all”. -Kahlil Gibran

Down through the centuries, thousands of unfortunate sensitives were called witches or heretics, and tortured or killed for no other “crime” than that they could heal the sick, prophesize or exhibit other gifts of Spirit. It was not until humanity began to break away from the bonds of rigid ecclesiastical thinking, that ordinary people could openly begin to access, rediscover, learn, develop and practice their innate abilities that come with a deeper awareness and understanding of Spiritual Truth.

     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”.
The Center for Creative Living, like many of UCM’s charters, ordains ministers and presents classes for women and men to become aware of their metaphysical and healing abilities. Students can elect to study for a Licentiate Minister’s Certificate, which requires a minimum of one year of study. The Licentiate shall be certified to administer and perform Divine healing, to give counsel, inspirational and spiritual messages and instruction, and to teach the gospel of Christ and Universal Truth. The students may also become Ordained Ministers. This entails a another year of study. At completion, the student is entitled to perform all the duties of a licentiate minister, plus marriage ceremonies, christenings, baptism, funeral and memorial services.
UCM also has an accredited Remote Degree program offering Associate, Bachelor, Master’s and Doctoral Degrees in Theology.
Please check out the free UCM annual meetingon Saturday for more information about this exciting and interesting spiritualist church.

     I want to thank everyone who was so kind and thoughtful while Rev. Doti was in the hospital and now at home recovering. We have received many phone calls and emails from well wishers and concerned folks…thank you, thank you. We are touched by the out pouring of love and concern. We could feel your prayers and love.

     Doti went through a few rough spots and now is on the other side of it.

     She is at home, still very weak and tired. Still sleeping quite a bit and resting. (Bored and tired of being in bed).

     Doti is looking for things to read. If you are interested in loaning her a book, please put your name in it and leave it at CCL. Thank you.

NEW! Doti/MAH will answer your pressing question in the next edition of CCL Insights. Send one question tosafedoti@aol.com and we will print MAH’s response. And, it’s FREE!

facilitated by Rev. April Lussier and inspirational music by Rev. Janet Childs.

  May We Feel Compassion

     May each of us find our true path and learn from our mistakes (karma) and accept each other’s evolutionary pathway and not feel, show, or express disapproval with the choices the other makes.

     May we feel compassion instead of hatred, love instead of anger, and an acceptance not only of others but of ourselves as well. May each of us do all of the above in a mindful way.

Buddhist Prayer

Thank you to all of the wonderful folks who sent cards, wrote emails, called and went to the hospital. All of your compassion, love and prayers are so welcomed. I am doing wonderfully and will be back on my feet shortly. As the Dalai Lama says:“Speedy recovery is considerably helped by the environment of human warmth and happiness they create.”

AFFIRMATION
I am a loving and compassionate
child of God.

This Sunday at CCL
 “God-Force, Barriers and You”
Beccawith
Rev. Bec Thompson

The only barrier between the subject and you, is your definition of the word:  Once you define a thing it is then limited to being that thing.
This sermon will be about how easy it is to move from perceived limitations into a new space that you always had access to – but didn’t realize it was there because it was defined as something else or did not “look” like your definition of it.

Care For One Another

by Rev. Doti Boon

     I have probably spent more time this year receiving and writing about compassion than any other time. Mainly I am concerned about the anger, fear and negative energy flowing around the planet. Yes, there are major difficulties in the world – but they aren’t you! Think of things that you can do to help raise the consciousness of yourself, family, friends and Mother Earth.

During these times of sorrow and pain it is important that we send prayers to all that are going through difficult times – particularly the Boston Marathon survivors, the parents and families of the murder victims and all who have been touched by this terrorist attack. It is also important that we pray for the parents of Tamerlan Tsamaev and Dzhokhar Tsamaev and their inability to accept their sons’ motives and actions. But, it is also important that we direct prayers to the spirits of these misguided young men and like-minded people all over the world that they receive the love and hope needed to move their energies into a positive outcome.

I have found some of the greatest words about love and compassion are written and spoken by His Holiness the Dalai Lama – it is time we listen to his words and take them to heart.

The Dalai Lama feels the more we care for the happiness of others, the greater our own sense of well-being becomes. Cultivating a close, warm-hearted feeling for others automatically puts the mind at ease. This helps remove whatever fears or insecurities we may have and gives us the strength to cope with any obstacles we encounter. It is the ultimate source of success in life.

As we look at all of the tragedies happening around the world, we need to understand that as long as we live in this world we are bound to encounter problems. Compassion reduces our fears, boosts our confidence and brings us inner strengths. According to the Dalai Lama, if, at such times, we lose hope and become discouraged, we diminish our ability to face difficulties. If, on the other hand, we remember that it is not just ourselves but everyone who has to undergo suffering, this more realistic perspective will increase our determination and capacity to overcome troubles. Indeed, with this attitude, each new obstacle can be seen as yet another valuable opportunity to improve our mind!

Mainly, the Dalai Lama feels that we are alive and living on planet earth to help bring about love and compassion to ourselves and others. Remember – without another’s loving care, none of us would have lived more than a few days. Keep Loving each other and yourself!

Classes at CCL

SAT. May 4 – 7:00 to 9:00 – Drudic Celebration – Beltane with Dr. Ayleen. Beltane, the third of the four Celtic fire festivals, is the start of the light or “samos” half of the year. It starts now at dusk on the 30th of April and continues through May 1st. For the ancient Celts though, this was a holiday that depended on nature for its beginning. Traditionally, it was celebrated when the Hawthorn trees began to bloom.
Traditions such as the Maypole dances wearing of bells (to frighten the mischievous fairy folk which in Celtic lands were not considered friendly), dousing all fires in the community to be re-lit from the sacred fires, passing between or over fires, or through the smoke for purification are derived.  Sexuality was expressive and performed in honor of the God and Goddess. Today, Beltane is commonly known and celebrated as “May day” and the dance of the maypole still observed in many European cultures and the United States.  While at Alban Eilir the young couple’s love was platonic, by Beltane they have grown to know the pleasures of sexuality. The festival is one which celebrates union.
Beltane was the time of sensuality revitalized, the reawakening of the earth and all of her children. It was the time when tribal people celebrated with joy the vivid colors and vibrant scents of the season, tingling summer breezes, and the rapture of summer after a long dormant winter. It was customary that Handfastings, for a year and a day, take place at this time.
Come share the evening with discussion of the significance of Beltaine and enjoy a feast of ceremonial foods, poetry and music.  Dress as you feel celebrates the season…have fun with it! (Druids should wear their ceremonial whites).
The cost of the evening is $20.00.  Payments can be made at the door.
If cost is an issue, please contact Dr. Ayleen or Kyna.
