Stretch

David and GoliathStretch

I move forward with the confidence of spirit.

When I take risks, stretch, and try new things according to the guidance of Spirit, I grow. In the past, I may have hesitated or held back when faced with new opportunities, but today I move forward with confidence.

If I am shy, being the first to introduce myself at a gathering may be a stretch for me. Initiating a challenging project or goal extends me out of my comfort zone. I welcome the chance to develop untapped skills.

Feeling uncertain about the outcome is only natural when I try something new. I can try again if necessary. I am not discouraged, as Spirit is with me. I move forward with strong faith, and my life is enriched as I grow.

Lead lives worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing to him, as you bear fruit in every good work and as you grow in the knowledge of God. Colossians 1:10

Out of AfricaChrist Consciousness and Humanity

In the other reality, the first humans shared in the holistic perspective of the Creator, but in the form reality, their perspective was decidedly subjective, incapable of accurately assessing the needs of the whole. They could not creatively direct the course of those who had projected forms functioning within Creation. Only the Totality of Consciousness, God the Father, the Creator, was in that position. So long as they had trust in Him, and were willing to function within the range of their design, within the context of the Creator’s own internal dynamics, they had complete freedom to enjoy the created realms.

Choosing to partake of the forbidden fruit, these first representatives of deity stepped outside the range of their designated function, consequently outside the range of the creative energy that was available to them according to the nature of their design. This was the beginning of disease, aging and death, the beginning of their pattern of false identity, and the beginning of human history. The pattern of false identity has lasted to this day, and while it has not critically affected the gestation period, it has certainly made It less enjoyable.

Can you see more clearly now why it is essential in these closing years of the cycle to release your interpretations?

Labor Day WeekendField of Play

Labor Day in the United States is a public holiday celebrated on the first Monday in September. It honors the American labor movement and the contributions that workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of the country. It is the Monday of the long weekend known as Labor Day Weekend and it is considered the unofficial end of summer.

Beginning in the late 19th century, as the trade union and labor movements grew, trade unionists proposed that a day be set aside to celebrate labor. “Labor Day” was promoted by the Central Labor Union and the Knights of Labor, which organized the first parade in New York City. In 1887, Oregon was the first state of the United States to make it an official public holiday. By the time it became an official federal holiday in 1894, thirty U.S. states officially celebrated Labor Day.

Canada’s Labour Day is also celebrated on the first Monday of September. More than 80 countries celebrate International Workers’ Day on May 1 – the ancient European holiday of May Day – and several countries have chosen their own dates for Labour Day.

Teddy RooseveltThe American Presidency

The rising young Republican politician Theodore Roosevelt unexpectedly became the 26th president of the United States in September 1901, after the assassination of William McKinley. Young and physically robust, he brought a new energy to the White House, and won a second term on his own merits in 1904. Roosevelt confronted the bitter struggle between management and labor head-on and became known as the great “trust buster” for his strenuous efforts to break up industrial combinations under the Sherman Antitrust Act. He was also a dedicated conservationist, setting aside some 200 million acres for national forests, reserves and wildlife refuges during his presidency. In the foreign policy arena, Roosevelt won a Nobel Peace Prize for his negotiations to end the Russo-Japanese War and spearheaded the beginning of construction on the Panama Canal. After leaving the White House and going on safari in Africa, he returned to politics in 1912, mounting a failed run for president at the head of a new Progressive Party.
