Moving, Sorting, Packing, Releasing

Rev. Pattie, Rev. Karyn and I are moving our offices from upstairs to downstairs. As a matter of fact, as I am writing this blog, Revs. Pattie and Karyn have already moved downstairs. Because they are now sharing an office space, they have had to collaborate and combine. They make it look so easy.

We are moving for a good reason. As many of you know, we run an executive suites business upstairs. With our move downstairs, we have opened up three more suites for rent.

What a great opportunity to practice the prosperity principle of releasing the clutter. The reason we release the clutter is two-fold -- first to appreciate what we choose to keep, thereby giving it even more value. The second is to create a vacuum so that greater good can flow in. The universe abhors a vacuum. Change is necessary to growth.

One practical matter we considered in moving my office is what to do about the people who are late for meditation. They have always cut through that door which will be the entry to my new office. We discussed it as a board of trustees and decided to try having late-comers go through the kitchen to get to the meditation. We will soon see how it works.

How important change is to spiritual growth. Each one of us is being called to change -- perhaps in small, subtle ways or perhaps in large ways.

How good are you with change? Do you seek it? Do you attempt to maneuver around it? What is attempting to express through you right now? What new idea is calling you?
