Dear Dignity Friend,
Hope you are having a good week.
This Sunday we are having a Sponsored Dinner after Mass, join us for Mass and dinner(make a donation for dinner).
We hope and pray that this weekly message will nurture you spiritually and be especially helpful in the more difficult times of life.
Soul knowledge sends you in the opposite direction from consumerism.
It’s not addition that makes one holy but subtraction:
Stripping the illusions,
Letting go of the pretense,
Exposing the false self,
Breaking open the heart
And the understanding, not taking my private self too seriously.
In a certain sense we are on the utterly wrong track.
We are climbing while Jesus is descending,
And I think in that we reflect the pride and arrogance of Western civilization,
Always trying to accomplish, perform, and achieve.
We transferred much of that to our version of Christianity and became spiritual consumers.
The ego is still in charge.
When the self takes itself that seriously, there’s no room left for God.
All we can really do is get ourselves out of the way, and we can’t even do that.
Prayer: Let go and Let God…
