The season of Advent starts tomorrow, with the Sunday of Hope. We need hope more than ever, an undying flame in our hearts that we never allow to extinguish. Every moment carries the potential for shift, personally and collectively. The power of our attention, intention, and heart’s energy can manifest change, as no doubt we all have experienced at some time in our lives. For this reason, hope is always relevant, appropriate, and undying.
For fun, here is an Advent calendar created by Ananda Worldwide’s office. If you are not familiar with Advent calendars, they are a fun way to count down the days until Christmas. Every day you open a tile to reveal a treat, or in this case, an inspirational quote from the Kriya masters of this path. Today is day 2, but if you try to open them all like I did, it won’t let you! Each tile is stamped for its particular day, so the “3” tile will let you in tomorrow, Sunday, December 3rd.
Speaking of Sunday, December 3rd, please join us tomorrow as we meet for meditation. If you can’t make it, below are links you might like for your home practice. May we each embody Peace on Earth, Compassion for all, and Hope for a new tomorrow.
