May we stare into a campfire
and watch the sparks ascend
in the night air,
rising to meet You.

Look into the function of a cell, or out into the galaxy and you will see the Presence and Activity of God. Even better, science is starting to recognize this perfect Intelligence by Its real name. Take a journey into the microscope and telescope as we enjoy the Glory of God.
The "Summer of Love" was a social phenomenon that occurred during the summer of 1967, when as many as 100,000 people, mostly young, converged in San Francisco'sHaight-Ashbury neighborhood. Hippies, flower children, war protesters, peace freaks, and everyone in-between took to the streets to share ideas, music, and love.
The voice of the emerging hippie lifestyle, the San Francisco Oracle declared: "A new concept of celebrations beneath the human underground must emerge, become conscious, and be shared, so a revolution can be formed with a renaissance of compassion, awareness, and love, and the revelation of unity for all mankind." So put on your grooviest outfit, and come and be a part of this renaissance of unity and consciousness. Prizes!
In the Gospel of St. Thomas, Jesus shares: "If you bring forth what is within you, what you bring forth will save you. If you do not bring forth what is within you, what you do not bring forth will destroy you."
We can no longer afford to live as dim versions of ourselves. The complexity of our time requires a greater and wiser use of our capacities, and that starts with consciousness. The world can only thrive if we thrive, and to thrive, we have to keep evolving.
