A measure of our Spiritual Maturity is our ability to rejoice in another’s good fortune

Most of you have heard about Rev. Michael leaving CSL to pursue another job in NYC. This is such a great job and a great opportunity for Michael in a city he loves. So, when people ask me how I am doing, the only thing that comes to mind is how happy I am for him.

Yes, there will need to be some shifts and adjustments around here. Michael was such a creative person, a big hole is created by his leaving. But holes are made to be filled and I imagine people will step up to fill in the gaps.

Remember, when we live in the consciousness of connection, we can be confident that one person’s good is a blessing to all, often in ways that take time to be revealed.

So, here’s to Rev. Michael and his new adventure in the Big Apple. And here’s to the adventure that awaits all of us at CSL.

If you want others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want to be happy, practice compassion.
