Nancy's Notes

​It's been a long time since I've returned to my Gratitude List, but the County Commissioner's meeting I went to on Thursday caused me to get it out again. It was more productive than I thought it would be. Advanced Disposal landfill on Old Federal Hgwy. is now a huge mountain of trash, and they're getting ready to expand the already unsightly, stinky and dangerous endeavor that services not only our county but the whole region.  

A few of us who live near Old Federal Hgwy. were allotted time to voice our grave concerns about this issue. One of our commissioners actually listened to us and has written a letter to Advanced Disposal suggesting that their manager meet with all of us who are concerned. He responded saying that it's not necessary to have a meeting, the deed is already done, even though none of the constituents were informed about this expansion until the "go ahead" was already given. This commissioner will continue to keep us informed and her email to the manager let him know that protecting the Etowah River,Trail of Tears route, and Community Park that adjoin this landfill is nothing to ignore. We're now organizing a campaign to somehow approach our state representatives. They were the ones who actually orchestrated this highly lucrative deal some years ago and just recently slipped in the expansion deal.

There's not much I can do to change the direction in which our country seems to be heading; but I'll be darned if I'll sit by and watch predators pollute this historic, sacred land that our Native American brothers and sisters were chased off of. A few of us are now starting a campaign to clean up our environment and do something positive with our pent up energy. Yes, some of our supposed public servants are listening to what their constituants have to say and are willing to get into the arena with them. I am really grateful to have had this experience with our commissioner and trust that she will continue to be our advocate.

Richard Rohr says, "In our century we have seen millions give themselves to ideologies of communism, fascism, terrorism, and unfettered capitalism (yes, Wall Street is also an embodiment of our ideoloy!) Like never before, we are now seeing the misplaced anger that was at the bottom of many of the social movements of our age... None of these "isms' ever create a "civilization of love" or even positive energy; they are largely theories in the head and come from the small egoic personality, leaving the soul bereft, starved, and saddened outside... Without elders, much of our history has been formed by juniors reacting, overreacting and protecting their own temporary privilege, with no deep-time vision like the Iroquois Nation, which considered, "What would be good for the next seven generations?"

Let me know if you'd like to be part of this movement...... Nancy













4-11-17 from Nancy

For 40 years I've been waking up at 4am. That's the only time I'm inclined to "do" nothing. I'm a doer by nature. 4am is my time to fall in love with Existence. Osho says:

Love is spontaneous. You cannot "make" love; you cannot do anything about it. You have to allow it to happen. Modern man and woman have become incapable of love. They are only capable of doing things. The whole modern mind is based on doing.

If someone asks what is the meaning of life, know well that love is lacking... he has not been able to flower in a love experience. Whenever someone is in love, he never asks what is the meaning of life. He knows love is the meaning in life. And through love prayer is possible because prayer is again a love relationship---not between two individuals, but between one individual and existence itself. Then the whole existence becomes your beloved or lover.  

I cannot do anything about love. I can only stop all my doing, surrender and be possessed by Love. The secret of love and prayer and the secret of anything that can make you fulfilled is surrender--the capacity to be possessed. Then a greater force will take you, and you can grow into prayer or into meditation, and the ultimate ecstasy is just like love. That is why Jesus says that "God is love," not that "God is loving."

Falling in love with existence is the best way I have found to help heal our world and my self......


In Love With Life,
Nancy

Even as a mother protects with her life her child, her only child,

So with a boundless heart should one cherish all living beings;

Radiating kindness over the entire world

Spreading upwards to the skies, & downwards to the depths; Outwards & unbounded

Divine Feminine Rising Temple
Facilitator Shahina Lakhni 












Divine Feminine Rising Temple is a place for women to be radically present with other women. Here, women acknowledge the sacred in each other. It is a safe place for us to connect with and honor all aspects of the divine that lives in each one of us. It is not a place to judge, to try to heal, counsel or teach. In the temple, we deeply listen to each other and to our own voice, so each one of us finds a safe space to be authentic and fully themselves.
“The gift of the Temple Group to the world is the allowing, embracing and giving birth to a fully expressed, divine, feminine essence. We explore and practice being empowered, free and deeply feminine at the same time, holding the vision of a fully realized, awakened female expression on Earth.” Awakening Women Institute.

Srimati Shahina Lakhani, Tantric Sadhika and Peace Mama: Shahina has a Master's degree in Nursing. She holds several certificates in intuitive arts and healing. She is a pan-spiritualist. Shahina feels deeply drawn to the mysteries and stories of the divine in its incarnate and non-incarnate forms. A tantric by practice, Shahina helps people embody divine principles of love, success, and peace into their personal life. Shahina says, "A true master is someone who can pull the divine wisdom from the depths of the cosmos, bring it into the realm of form, and help create heaven on earth, one heart at a time.


April 23 Relationship Tune Up 11 AM - 2 PM
With Peter Vajda
No need to have attended any previous workshops in this series. 








Topics:
 What To Do When My Partner is Unable or Unwilling to Open Up
A frequently-voiced complaint that arises in many relationships is “(S)He won’t talk to me.” “I can’t get him/her to open up. As hard as I try, I can’t get more than a one-or-two word response. I’m really angry and frustrated." The truth is, sometimes the consequences of refusing to listen to or talk about upsetting occurrences can be far more painful and damaging than the experience of discussing those issues. If one partner refuses, in any way, shape or form, to engage in a conversation, this pattern or behavior can derail the relationship, creating a vicious cycle that most often leads to entrenched feelings of resentment, alienation, disappointment, or worse.

May 13 Global Peace Rising Event 2017 4:00PM

This interspiritual, intersectionnal peace event is held every year on or close to the full moon in May. Each year, full moon in May is celebrated by Buddhists all over the world to celebrate Buddha's death, birth and enlightenment anniversaries. This celebrationis called Vesak. The overarching theme of Buddha's life is peace and, therefore, we have chosen this Vesak festival as the time to old our annual Global Peace Rising Event. Our celebration loosely follows Vesak tradition of chanting peace prayers and serving water charged with these peace prayers. However, we also add our own flair to this tradition and have a specific theme each year. This year's theme is story telling.
please see Calendar page for details

How could anyone ever tell you you were anything less than beautiful.  

How could anyone ever tell you you were less than whole.  

How could anyone fail to notice that your loving is a miracle

and how deeply you're connected to my soul. (lyrics by Libby Rodrich)
