Our space at 1933 California Street has been blessed beyond measure by healing vibrations that have purified and strengthened the resonance of Unity of the Sierra. René Jenkins, along with his partner Janet Cipriani, accessed ancient wisdom in their unique and gifted way to bring a physical manifestation of God’s Love to our space recently. The result is palpable. When you enter our doors, you will know you are stepping on holy ground.
And yet, “holy ground” is wherever you are. Jesuit Priest Pierre Teilhard de Chardin succinctly described our participation in Life by saying that “We are not human beings having a spiritual experience. We are spiritual beings having a human experience.” If Spiritual is what we ‘are’ and not what we are ‘doing’, then everything we do originates as spiritual — before it’s filtered by our humanness, that is. We, in the relative world, are not usually aware of our connection to the Absolute. But, the Absolute is our origination story.
Art in Spirituality is reflected as art in Life. The Beauty we see out in the world is a reflection of the spirit-world within each of us. Everything I see outside of me is divine, because it is a projection of my divinity; it is a reflection of me. Tat T’vam Asi: Thou art That. It is the relationship between the self and the Absolute. I am It and It is me; Unity Consciousness.
This coming Sunday we will have Art and Beauty in the room with us. The Alchemist Theatre has been beautifully transforming lives through the art of music, the spoken word, and visual arts. You can enjoy their Director of Creativity Matthew McDowell’s piece (created with his wife Kate) hanging in our CommUnity room. And this week, we’ll have Chris Daniels aka Rev. Divine, Rev. Jes Levity, and music by Joe Daylover and Carolyn Smith from the Alchemist Movement to share our space at 1933 California St. I have no doubt that The Alchemists will add to the healing vibration that we have all come to know and relish as we are enfolded within it at Unity of the Sierra.
Please join us, The Alchemists do not disappoint!
