“To have any chance of knowing joy, we must love everything in the way.” - Mark Nepo

Often it feels like there are just some things, or some people, or some intangible feeling that is getting in the way of us living a life that feels good, that actually just feels joyful. It’s so easy to see these things that are getting in the way as stuff that needs to be fought against or replaced or conquered. Yet, if we want to know joy, Mark Nepo invites us to instead love everything in the way, and by doing so, that transformative power of love does its work and we can find ourselves simply living in the Tao, or the Way that is in tune with all of life.

Service starts at 6:30pm, Happy Hour with snacks, wine and cold beverages starts at 6!

All the Best,
Rev. Masando

In a world that is calling our attention to many things that aren’t in alignment with a world that works for everyone, it has become clear that it is time for each of us to speak up. And by speaking up, I mean speak up to the higher vision of what is possible without devolving into debate and divisiveness of what is. I just spent time with Rev. Dr. William Barber and I will be bringing you some wisdom and tools from this amazing teacher and speaker of truth.

Join us to speak a world we know is possible into being.

With Great Love,
Rev. Kylie Renner

“Our quest for purpose begins with knowing our natural gifts. Then our life’s work becomes the inevitable journey of becoming what we already are.” - Mark Nepo

I have this tendency to create value for myself in terms of achievement. Through building something, or growing something, or getting to the next level of something. Yet, I realize how much of a trap this can create. If I am constantly thinking that I have to do something great in order to feel like I’m something great, I’m most likely going to continually feel not-so-great about myself as the natural rhythms of life bring me up and down and round and round.

It’s dizzying. And yet, I realize, what I am really trying to achieve is simply a deeper alignment with who I am already, seeking to allow my life to be a reflection of my most true, most soulful self, and that we’re all already all ready for that alignment, and for a life that shows it.

Service at 6:30, social at 6:00, every Wednesday evening.
All the best, Rev. Masando Hiraoka

“Can’t nobody be free unless we’re all free. There’s no me and no you, there’s just us.” - Brother Ali
There’s so much I am eager to share with you all about the Social Justice Ministry here at Albuquerque Center for Spiritual Living. And I realize, that so much of what I have learned has come from my interactions with all of you. Through witnessing the bravery at our singing and acting performances, through learning about the work you are doing out in the world, and perhaps above all, through the love that this community gives to each other to create a place of support and magic and evolution, I am learning so much about what it means to live a life of love and freedom and justice.

This is the crux of social justice. It really is about being in community with each other, with all its complexities and challenges, with all of its joy and laughter. I am so grateful to be in a community where all the beautiful messiness that comes in working together, for one another, can allow us to grow in ways we simply couldn’t do on our own. Individually and collectively, we are walking the path of awakening.

Excited to see you on Sunday,
Rev. Masando

To declare something unequivocally, to leave no wiggle room for excuses and half-hearted rationalization, we might say “No ifs, ands, or buts about it.” At least, that’s how the phrase goes in the United States. In the UK and Australia, the more common expression is “No ifs and buts.” And I really like this way of saying it.

Because for me, when I’m talking about the fullness of the absolute, about commitment and truth and passion and power, I think it’s all about the ANDS! No ifs. No buts. But lots of ands — and this, and this, and this, and you, and them, and him & her & me. It’s about additional inclusivity, an ever-expanding, unabashed, unconditional YES to Life.

I can’t wait to see you Saturday at 6:00 pm. Come early for snacks, wine, and community at 5:30. XO, Rev. Drew
