Yes (insert crisis, horrible news event here) is going on. Now, that we’ve acknowledged it, let me remind you not to lose focus. Whether we realize it or not there is always a crisis going on and there is always something in the news that is painful to learn about and challenges how we see […]
Meditation for Calm, Happy, Focused Children. Soul Center OC includes teaching Meditation to children every Sunday during youth services at the Enlightened Kids Village. Meditation can take many forms, and goes by many names. What is common to all forms is that you aim to focus the mind, the breathing, the energy, all on one […]
The Bigger the Shadow the Bigger the Light. From Agape’s Inner Visions publication, January 2, 2017 For 2017, I am going to give you a winning lottery ticket. And I am flat out serious. But it’s a hundred percent up to you how and when you will cash it in. You can pretend it’s just a game […]
One of the systems we’re part of, of course, is the political system. We may wish we weren’t part of it often, but we are. And all of those people playing with the power of the medium of politics, and its effect on the media and its effect on collective human consciousness, and those people […]
Ram Dass teaches a heavy curriculum. If somebody is a problem for you, it’s not that they should change, it’s that you need to change. If they’re a problem for themselves that’s their karma, if they’re causing you trouble that’s your problem on yourself. So, in other words when Christ is crucified, he says “forgive […]
Today there is going to be a whole lot of people talking about just about everything. On your social media timelines, the radio, tv and in newspapers there will be no shortage of commentary. At work, in the grocery store, in the line at the post office people will be talking about the state of […]
The Divine Dichotomy Seems there’s a lot of toil and trouble going on right now. Just look at SNL, cable news, the latest viral video or even a box of Tic Tacs. Wacky debates, dastardly denials, elections looming, lines being drawn in the proverbial sands of Facebook and friends being obliterated with the click of […]
Michael Bernard Beckwith is hardly your average minister. Sure, he tends to his congregation (Agape International Spiritual Center in Los Angeles, California), serves the community, and delivers rousing oratory—but he also walks his talk globally. He’s addressed the United Nations, cofounded an international peacekeeping organization, and presented an award to the late Nelson Mandela. He’s […]
INDOMITABLE LOVE It hurts. Some days more than others, to be human. I wonder what it would be like if we measured the birth pains of all the mothers of this world on a single day and compared them with the pain humanity is experiencing on that day. So much pain. And with all of […]
It is often nearly impossible to predict the impact of our lives upon others. Certainly there are times when we can see the direct effect an action or even of inaction but this seems to be rare. Sure, some things are easily correlated, a smile in return for a hello, a thank you exchanged with […]
Since I have been attending Soul Center I have more Joy & Love in my life and less fear & stress. There are wonderful connections with kind and joyful people. The entire experience has enriched my life.
Soul Center is where I come to connect with the Divine and my Spiritual Community. I feel the true Agape spirit! Sunday is uplifting, filled with beautiful music, and a message delivered with Love. Sunday inspires you to see how magnificent you are. I am so enjoying the amazing speakers, and the fun activities at Soul Center.
I am so grateful to have found an open, loving, and accepting Spiritual community dedicated to seeking the highest values in truth, love and peace.
My journey changed my life. I feel connected to a community that supports and encourages me, as I evolve. I am forever grateful.
