Sacred Circle 9:30AM - 11:00AM
Ongoing Mondays

We are having Sacred Circle every Monday morning from 9:30 AM - 11:00AM. Carrie has flown in from New Orleans for this meeting. We meet on the open air patio downstairs overlooking the pool. The door to the house is unlocked. Just come on in and walk down the stairs to the basement. You will see the door to the patio there. We observe social distancing and masks are optional. 

We are always listening for better ways to connect with one another and trust that the guidance will come as we go into the Silence and speak our truth. What stimulating conversations we have. We are interested in everyone's perspective. When we sit together in Circle, we wait for inspiration; and when it comes, we speak it as the enlightened beings we know ourselves to be.  

 We follow the Council of Peace 
guidelines: 

"We agree to refrain from judging, persuading, defending or interrupting those with whom we are in dialogue. 
We agree to be curious and to be real. 
We agree to listen, in order to understand, regardless of whether our views are similar or different. 
We agree to hold this space as sacred and to be with one another here in openness and love."

Everyone is welcome to join us.
No reservations needed and there is no fee. 



 Nancy's Notes​

Wow! Mailchimp has gone Crazy! It's not letting me do anything....
I'd better make this short. Hoping I haven't lost all my contacts.
Ahhhh! I'm back on line.

I titled this sharing War & Peace because we are responsible for what we are creating. Nisargadatta was talking to a disgruntled man who was asked to do something that he didn't want to do. Nisargadatta told him, "The war is on now and there is chaos and we are being asked to take charge." Out of love for corporate existence one is born and once born, one gets involved in destiny. Destiny is inseparble from becoming. The desire to be the particular makes you into a person with all its personal and past and future. How utterly dependent is the personality of man and how indifferent is its world. And yet we love it and protect it for its very insignificance. My attitude is different than most. I do not look at death as a calamity, as I do not rejoice at the birth of a child. The child is out for trouble while the dead are out of it. Attachment to life is attachment to sorrorw. We love what gives us pain. Such is our nature. For me me the moment of death will be a moment of jubilation, not of fear. I cried when I was born and I shall die laughing.

My stand is clear (in this war) produce to distribute, feed before you eat, give before you take. Think of others before you think of yourself. Only a selfless society based on sharing can be stable and happy. This is the only practical solution. If you do not want it, fight.

Absolute perfection is here and now, not in some future, near or far. The secret is in action--here and now. It is your behavior that blinds you to yourself. Disregard whatever you think yourself to be and act as if you were absolutely perfect--whatever your idea of perfection may be. All you need is courage.


Zoom Meditation With Bert 
2 & 4th Sunday
11AM - 1PM

If you want to meditate with Bert on Zoom, be sure to email your email address to Kim Lemen kim.lemen@gmail.com so she can hook you up on line. How thankful we are to Kim for her Zoom expertise and willingness to serve!!!

Bert has been meditating regularly since 1965, when I learned meditation techniques from a theosophist family in my home town. Over the years I have changed the way I meditate to fit whatever spiritual path I was pursuing, but the goal was always the same. 

Realization was what I was after. One definition of that would be to operate from a level of awareness that is based in direct perception of everything as identically arising from one nameless, and utterly mysterious ground that we are. I have not succeeded in stably living from that position, but I do enjoy it part of the time and that has made the other times easier, in that my perceived suffering is greatly diminished.

 Many people in this culture find meditating extremely difficult. One reason is feeling overwhelmed by near constant thoughts and another is difficulty with being still when constant action is their primary mode of being. Also, for many, meditation has remained mysterious, alien, and even scary. These difficulties can be, and have been overcome.
