Here at the Hulnick household, we’ve been enjoying the Beauty of a long Thanksgiving weekend filled with Love and Appreciation for our Souls’ journey in this lifetime. Our meeting in New Mexico was surely Spirit orchestrated as was our meeting in 1978 with John-Roger, Founder of KOH-E-NOR University—now known throughout the world as the University of Santa Monica. He made us an offer we couldn’t refuse—leading to now more than 40 years of offering Programs in Spiritual Psychology through Soul-Centered education.

So in this Sacred Season of Love, we are savoring the gift of life, experiencing great Gratitude for the Wisdom of our Souls in Answering the Call and all the Blessings of being Awake to Love.

This time too is filled with festivities of preparing for the holidays. My attention turns to bringing Beauty to the landscape with magenta cyclamen massed together in the planting beds throughout the garden creating a feast of color for the eyes. Beautiful scarlet poinsettias radiate Glorious welcome at the gate, front door, and on the patios—their shape a reminder of the Star of Bethlehem.

We’re also in the midst of fall house cleaning as we prepare to decorate our home for the holidays: carpet cleaned, windows washed. This is all well and good—part of the JOY of celebrating Hanukkah and Christmas. This year we are evermore present tending to the Hearth of our Hearts so as to fully experience what is most of Essence in this Season of Love—those wonderful moments of receiving Soul Moments—experiential realization of what is most real.

Soul Moments are delicious… astonishing… magical moments of Awe… Wonder… Joy… Astonishment… Inspiration… Revelation… Illumination… Grace… They consist of anything that experientially evokes your Awareness of the Presence of Spirit, your Essential Loving Nature, the Precious Presence within, and Transcendent experiences of Divine Love.

During this Worldwide Community Gathering, we will share examples of Soul Moments and provide simple keys for cultivating the Blessings of Soul Moments in this Season of Love. These experiences may be catalyzed in so many magical and wonderful ways!

Here’s a wonderful Sufi story told by Idries Shah, a writer and teacher in the Sufi tradition:

“Someone went to the public session of a wise man, with two bunches of flowers. He said: ‘One of these bunches is real flowers; the other, made with the greatest cunning in China, is artificial. If you are as perceptive as you are supposed to be, I would like you to tell me which is which. But you must not hold them very close, you must not smell or touch them.’

“The sage said: ‘A wise question is met with a wise answer, a shallow one with a shallow reply. This, however, is a horticultural one—bring a hive of bees!’

“The bees, of course, chose the real flowers.”

The bee is the Soul seeking out the real flowers, the honey, choosing what is most fragrant and beautiful, and most real…

Join us for an evening of upliftment exploring how we can cultivate and experience that which is most real—Transcendental Soul moments—the gifts of Spirit abundantly ever-present and available as we open our eyes and hearts to perceive and experience them!

Friends and family are welcome.
