Divine Virtues

Peace

Chevron Down

Difinition: As Divine Order and Harmony
Season: The Month of January

Description: What we know through the empirical sciences, is that the Universe operates on a complex system of Physical Laws that are impersonal to anyone and anything. We believe that this is also true of Spiritual Laws.

Peace is the order and harmoney of these Natural and Spiritual Laws. Connecting with that Peace is about a feeling or deep sense of belonging, self esteem, unity of all creation, and the awareness that these Laws are always operating.

Beauty

Chevron Down

Definition: As the Self Recognition of Divinity
Season: The Months of May and June

Description: Beauty has always been a subjective idea throughout human history. So how can it be a universal Divine Virtue?

We believe that the human experience of Beauty is actually the feeling we have when the conscious and aware presence of God within us recognizes Itself in other things. It is an awareness of the awe and wonder that comes with our consicous connection to God.

Joy

Chevron Down

Definition: As the Expectancy of Divine Good
Season: The Months of July through September

Description: Joy goes beyond simply happiness or pleasure. Joy is a complete and total surrender to the present moment with total faith that everything happening is good.

Joy brings an abundant feeling of goodness that is so complete there is nothing else happening within us. When we are so inspired and engaged in living the goodness of life that nothing else even crosses our mind.

Truth

Chevron Down

Definition: As the Acceptance of Facts with Divine Grace
Season: The Months of October and November

Description: Truth is less about "being right" and more about facing the reality in which we live. It gives us the ability to reconcile our desired life with the one we actually have. The key to this Divine Virtue is Grace. It is not enough to fully accept what is happening in our lives.

Truth comes without guilt or shame. It is a grace-filled lens that reminds us that we have the power to affect our experience. It is a reminder that the same creative force that brought us to where we are, can also usher us out of what no longer serves us and begin to create something new.

Love

Chevron Down

Definition: As the Eternal Self-Givingness of Divinity
Season: The Month of February

Description:
Love is the most often referenced and arguably the most important Divine Virtue of all. It is that feeling we get when we are willing to give of ourselves to ensure the care or creation of something or someone else.

We believe that God's Love is the impulse that inspires It to create anything at all, including humanity. We also believe that it is infinite and inexhaustable. So, we can give as much Love as we can fashion ourselves to share with the world.

Life

Chevron Down

Definition: As the Animating Essence of All Living Things
Season: The Months of March and April

Description: Everything that lives has "something" that makes it living. We believe that "thing" is the Divine Virtue of Life itself.

Because we believe that God is all of creation, we can recognize that it has imparted Life into all sorts of different things. Plants, Insects, Animals, and Humanity, are ALL examples of God's "Living Creations".

We believe that God has afforded a measure of itself to allow Living Creations to be animated and afforded the free will to create their own experience.

Light

Chevron Down

Definition: As the Divine Wisdom of Conscious Awareness
Season: The Month of December

Description:
 As human beings, the highest form of conscious living things we have yet discovered, is humanity itself. This Self-awareness is so unique that it has afforded humanity with an undeniable sense of dominion over the earthly experience.

We believe that Light is the weisdom that comes from choosing to cultivate our mental, emotional, and spiritual intelligence. The more we engage in spiritual practices and cultivate ourselves as spiritual beings, the more wisdom we gain.

We believe that this collective and accumulated wisdom can be applied to every area of our lives to improve them and allow us to create inspired lives for ourselves. When we shine the Light of this wisdom on things we make healthier choices, treat others and the environment with more respect, and tend to attract other folks who wish to do the same in their own lives.
