Q: How does nature play a part in your teachings, if at all?
Laguna Niguel, CA
A: Nature definitely plays a part in our teachings. We believe God is in
everyone and everything. God is, first and foremost, a divine, creative essence.
We know that nature is a beautiful aspect of life and our environment, and that
God’s essence created the heavens and the earth. Certainly we can be in awe of
some of the natural landscape we witness such as the
Grand Canyon, the Redwood Forest,
Yosemite National Park, the ocean, a rose… we could go on and on. Just
the fact that this beauty unfolds naturally and effortlessly is proof that God
is at work through all things.
Q: How do we become like water as the Tao exclaims, while living in a
Orange County where everything is a competition?
Laguna Niguel, CA
A: Regardless of what environment surrounds us we can become like water no
matter where we dwell. The environment does not make us, we make our own
environment by choosing our thoughts and making a conscious choice not to fall
prey to race consciousness. We each have a responsibility to live our best life
that supports us and our world. We can be observers of what is unfolding around
us and evaluate its importance or not, and at the same time be a catalyst for
good and make those changes that enhance the experience of life for all.
