I rely on the Truth of my Being to guide the way I show up in the world!
Our guiding principles point the way for every aspect of our expression personally, within our spiritual community and beyond. They are:
- Oneness ~ Doorway to Infinite Power & Wisdom
- Love ~ Healing energy when truly lived
- Freedom ~ Courage to move through fear
- Openness ~ Allowing Good to flow
- Generosity ~ Knowing life is a process of giving
- Wholeness ~ Spirit works through us
- Gratitude ~ Appreciating the many blessings present in our lives
One word reflects the essence of those that call Center for Spiritual Living Crossroads home…
The origin of the word COURAGE is Latin cor, Old French corage, and eventually Middle English distinguishing the heart as the center of feelings.
All involved with CSLC are encouraged to wholeheartedly:
- Be available to Divine Inspiration
- Follow the guidance of Infinite Wisdom
- Rely on the magnificence of Spirit to face change, make decisions, and allow their highest good.
Inner resilience to move in the direction of divinely guided dreams… with optimism and joy… is always supported. So navigated by courage, life may be viewed as a marvelous journey.
