True spirituality that is pure in the eyes of our Father God is to make a difference in the lives of the orphans, and widows in their troubles, and to refuse to be corrupted by the world’s values. James 1:27 (TPT) ·
When we look at the suffering and injustice that exists in this world as a whole, it’s overwhelming. The problems are just too big!
And yet, we see throughout Scripture God's concern for the needs of the poor. Jesus Himself even identifies with the poor, describing our care for the poor among us as care for Him.
So in spite of the overwhelming needs around us, we cannot give in to the despair that comes when we see the extent of the pain, poverty and problems. Instead, we need to engage as God has called us to—caring for the needs of others worse off than we are.
So where does it start? I believe it starts with a change of mind and a change of heart. Serving the poor is an opportunity to worship God.
Spirit has given me much to share, though with a possible looming deadline on the amount of time in which I will be able to comprehensively do so. Please don’t wait to take this course if you’re interested in these findings. I teach #Astrology through the lens of #Hermetic#Qabalah, and while other teachers may as well, I feel confident in saying that what you will learn with me is not being taught anywhere else. As squeamish as I am to admit it, my teachings are indeed channeled, and as such, they are very precious to me. I seek to give this #wisdom to those who will use it for the purposes of #unity, #connection, #light, and #love. This is not mass-market “pop” astrology. This is an #intuitive guide to deep understanding and perspective, with the goals of increased conscience #awareness and improved #compassion. Even if you feel you are familiar with astrology, I promise you will learn a great deal of new #insight. Quite frankly, this is an ancient curriculum, well above my earthly “pay grade” and I believe it has been entrusted to me only as its modern caretaker, to be shared with those #magical practitioners of pure #intention. I hope you will join me and the group of students who have been called “to know in order to serve.” Link in my bio to enroll, and not to worry if you need to miss a class as audio recordings will be provided for any missed sessions. I love this community, I love this school, and I love this team - and teaching is how I am currently able to show my love. I believe 💯 in the value @22teachings brings to the world, because I am living proof of the transformative power of the Western Mystery Tradition. When the student is ready, the teacher appears - @naha99 appeared for me during a dark time in my life - and it is my hope to now show up for others. And so it is. ♥️🙏✨
Coucou 😊 "Dis merci à la dame !" Tu as dû l'entendre cette phrase, non ? Peut-être même qu'elle t'a fait grincer des dents quand tu étais minot car c'est toujours rageant de se faire rabrouer par les parents en public !
Mais aujourd'hui je te l'annonce : la dame c'est toi (même si t'es un mec, c'est ok, j't'ai déjà dit ici on met tout le monde dans le même panier) et TU DOIS TE REMERCIER pour tout ce que tu as fait et entrepris ces derniers temps POUR TOI -MÊME, pour ton bonheur, ton épanouissement, ton bien-être, ta survie.
Si tu ne portes pas un regard bienveillant sur toi, qui le fera ? Si tu ne te tends pas la main, qui te sauvera ? SI TU NE T'AIMES PAS, QUI T'AIMERA ?
Indulgence, écoute, compréhension, auto compassion, tolérance sont indispensables pour que tu puisses vivre une histoire saine et sereine avec ta propre personne. N'oublie pas que tu vas devoir te supporter très longtemps, alors autant que tout se passe bien, n'est-ce pas ? 🌌 Pour quelles raisons souhaiterais tu te remercier ?
🌌 Et que pourrais-tu faire aujourd'hui pour te montrer ton amour ? ✨ De mon côté, je me remercie d'être aussi combative. Ça me vient sûrement de ma maman : On ne lâche jamais rien !
✨ Et j'aimerais beaucoup m'offrir le temps de voir le dernier film de Woody Allen aujourd'hui..séance à 13h15, ça peut le faire car j'ai un élève à 16h ! Prendre du temps pour soi, c'est une chouette preuve d'amour 😍
A ton tour 😊

I need the quiet tranquility of the starry night sky. I need the peace and solitude that comes with it. I open my window in the morning hours and I find the moon and the stars staring back at me.. looking straight into my soul. The night time offers a certain kind of kindred connection with my heart that the daytime doesn’t. The crickets sing, the wind moves and the stars hang alongside the moon. There’s no obligations.. no one to see, no where to go.. it’s so free. I could sit by the window until the sun comes up and watch each color change.. watch as the stars fade.. it’s paradise, a kind of heaven on earth.. it’s a song that doesn’t use words or melody.. you look and you feel it.. and it feels like home.💙🌌💫
If you want to experience positive mental well-being, there are things you have to do on a regular basis that result in mental wellness ✨
———————————————————————————1. Mindfulness: 💕
Mindfulness allows you to have conscious awareness of what you are doing, so you can make choices to override automatic thinking and make positive changes in thoughts and behaviour. .
2. Input: 💕
you need to take in as many positive things from your surroundings as possible, and minimize the number of negative things. Notice all things that bring you down on a daily basis, who you surround yourself with, what you watch and listen to. .
3. Self- compassion. 💕
Self-compassion is about learning to be kind to yourself and to be self-forgiving of the flaws we all have and the mistakes we all make as human beings. Become aware of your internal dialogue, are you self critical? Are you hard on yourself? Notice these patterns and replace them with kinder words and acknowledgement.
There are precious moments in teaching when you can see the profound connection of your student with the subject. Such was this moment.
After Blessing and Lunch, we agreed to journey into Briones. Along the path, we learned how 170 years ago today, Harriet Tubman first experienced freedom from slavery after her trek from Maryland to Pennsylvania. We learned of her numerous return trips to assist others to escape slavery along the Underground Railroad she helped to found. We listened to her words that resonated deeply with us as we stood at a fork in the road: “I had reasoned this out in my mind, there was one of two things I had right to, liberty or death; if I could not have one, I would have the other.” “Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world.” #wildoak@wildoakeducation#wildoakeducation#bayarea#eastbay#homeschool#homeschooling#enrichment#classes#empathy#compassion#freedom#nature#natureschool#hike#wildschooling#wilderness#outdoors#languagearts#history
Acceptance “And acceptance is the answer to ᗩᒪᒪ my problems today.
When I am disturbed, it is because I find some person, place, thing, or situation- some fact of my life- unacceptable to me, and I can find no serenity until I accept that person, place, thing, or situation as being exactly the way it is supposed to be at this moment.” This requires action, on my part.
Acceptance does not mean that i must agree with everyone or everything.
It does, however, make room in my heart (and my racing mind!) for some peace. And when I can find some peace, then I can rest in a power that is greater than anything.
Sending each one of you so much love.
