The Teachings of Courtney Carver

I came across this insightful and invigorating book while on vacation and sat down and read it in one day. It stirred in me how much waste I have accumulated in the years I have been married raising four children. A marriage of 48 years accumulates lots of things. My biggest collection in life are books. I refuse to say that they are a waste but at this time in my life I can begin to donate them to a worthy cause. It will be a start. Clothes, shoes, and other stuff I already eliminate seasonally.

I like the 33 pieces of clothes recommended that I know I can survive on. I actually have put myself in a sort of uniform over the years. I choose one outfit to wear at least two days in a row. And it serves me well. I am not rolling around in mud or getting dirty so why not wear an outfit more than once.

In writing this blog, I was inspired to take a look at the waste in my closet. WOW! There was a tremendous amount of stuff that I did not even remember that I had. I just dumped it all out and said to myself this is the beginning of eliminating things in my life that are cluttering up my existence on planet earth at this very moment. This is a picture of the 3 bags of clothes that I am releasing this week. Next week I will gather the books that need a new home and a new mind to inspire.

Being witness to a father struggling with mental illness and in and out of mental institutions allowed me to see that things are not important. At one time right before my dad passed at seventy years old, he said to me that he personally owned nothing and even the clothes he wore were not his. (In the institution he was in the clothes were donated) “How great is that,” he asked me? In reflection, I agree it is great! I feel blessed and definitely lighter donating 3 bags of clothes today!

Soulful Simplicity: how living with less can lead to so much more by Courtney Carver, shows us the power of simplicity to improve our health, build more meaningful relationships, and relieve stress in our professional and personal lives.

We are often on a quest for more – we give in to pressure every day to work more, own more, and do more. For Carver, this constant striving had to come to a stop when she was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis (MS). Stress was like gasoline on the fire of symptoms, and it became clear that she needed to root out the physical and psychological clutter that were the source of her debt and discontent.

In this book, she shows us how to pursue practical minimalism so we can create more with less – more space, more time, and even more love. Carver invites us to look at the big picture, discover what’s most important to us, and reclaim lightness and ease by getting rid of all the excess things.

PRAISE FOR Soulful Simplicity:
“Courtney Carver’s new book Soulful Simplicity is a practical road map for embracing the beauty of less and making room in our lives for what matters most.” – Ali Edwards, Craft the Story.

“In a world where so much of the messaging around radical simplicity is just about living with less stuff, Soulful Simplicity prescribes a lifestyle filled with a lot more of one thing: love. What our heart needs is a huge part of the equation, and Courtney teaches us how to make sure we’re listening to it.” – Cait Flanders, author of The Year of Less

“A gentle, compassionate guide to making more space in your home, more time in your day, and more love in your heart. Courtney’s personal story provides powerful inspiration to live a simpler, more intentional life.” – Francine Jay, missminimalist.com

eBook –Mini-Missions for Simplicity: small actions for massive change. When you start to simplify your life and even when you are years into the process, some things take longer than you anticipate and it can feel like you are taking one step forward, and two steps back. Instead of getting frustrated or giving up, try a mini-mission.

Mini-missions are assignments or challenges that you can implement immediately, so you can benefit from some immediate gratification during this adventure and make your simple life more enjoyable and sustainable.

Mini-missions are often one step actions that you can do to improve your health, relationships, bank account or wardrobe. Putting these mini-missions into action will help you reduce stress and discover what really makes you healthy and happy. Here are a few examples:

  • Section One:    Clutter – simply pass it on!
  • Section Two:   Productivity – Say No, so you can say Yes! 
  • Section Three: Relationships – Judge Less!
  • Section Four:   Life – Enjoy! 
  • Section Five:    Health & Happiness – Eat Real Food!

eBook – Simple Ways to Be More with Less. If you have imagined a life with less, reading this book is a great way to get started. Most of us have lived our adult lives working more, to make more, to spend more, to have more. We haven’t done it maliciously, but out of habit.

Our parents wanted better for us and we want better for our children, but somewhere along the way we forgot what better was.

These 27 ideas will help you to be more with less. They are simple for the most part, but sometimes the smallest change makes the biggest difference. As you go through this process, you will subtract things from your life, and add other things (which aren’t really “things”) back in.

Living with less sometimes means adding more in the way of healthy habits to your lifestyle. You don’t have to do everything in the order that they appear. You don’t have to do all of them or any of them. Pick and choose the suggestions that work for you. Implement these ideas to create your life on purpose.

About the Author: Courtney Carver shares simplicity stories at: bemorewithless.com

Simplicity changed everything about her life, work and health. She left a 15 year career in sales and marketing in 2011 to write and speak about simplicity and help people focus on what matters most by getting rid of everything that doesn’t.

The Teachings of Lucinda Herring

Photo by anouar olh on Pexels.com

We all have experienced the loss of a loved one or a pet. Personally, my brother, nephew, dad, and mom have transitioned, as well as friends and other family members.

Reflecting on the many funerals and wakes that I have attended, there was fear, tears, and pain evident in the living. I have stepped back into those moments to recall how I felt.

The sadness of my brother’s sudden death by a drunk driver created hysteria for everyone in 1988. There was no illness, no long-term hospital visits, no way of preparing. A typical 3-day wake, funeral mass, and burial would place me in my first experience with grief for the next 6 years.

My nephew, my brothers first-born was murdered suddenly and was dead a month before his mother was notified. His was a closed coffin and I imagine he suffered alone and scared during his time of transition as he was shot two times in his stomach and left on the side of the road naked with no identification. My grief was short because it dawned on me that I had no control over who lives or dies and I had a family to raise.

My dad was ill for the past 30 years of his life with mental problems after attempting suicide and in 1998 he suffered in the hospital for two weeks from lung cancer before passing. It was a surreal moment in his hospital room, the stillness, and emptiness I felt as I kissed him goodbye amazed me at the time. I chose to not embalm him, so there had to be a closed, sealed coffin so I asked the funeral director to put him in a white sheet. Strangely he looked at me then my husband and back at me and agreed. One day and night and he joined his father in his grave. My grief was short because my dad was finally at peace.

My mom, on the other hand, died all alone in a nursing home and was cremated in 2017 and her ashes were FedEx to me. To this day she sits on my mantle in a black box. She had asked to be spread in the water by our home by a specific bridge. I cannot bring myself to do this? It is strange but she missed so much of my life the last twenty-five years of her life that I need to keep her with me.

There is an essence to death that has comforted me to know that my loved ones who transition are still around me at different times. My mom for instance communicated with me for an entire year before moving on.   I was stunned by the choices my mom decided on in life but I respected her free will to live as she needed to. My grief lasted a year because I finally had her home and I shared my days with her and introduced her to my grand-babies and important people in my life that she had never met.

Like me, I am positive you have your stories of death and loss. The beautiful part of life is that we can always communicate with all of our loved ones whether dead or alive. Take what benefits you from Lucinda Herring’s teaching and be open to what you would desire when it is your time or a loved ones to consider.

I came to reading this book because of a group I was invited into. Knowing that there is a reason for all in life, I am contemplating life and what I would desire when it is my time to transition over. It is a beautiful, emotional read for me and insightful as well that we as a society have a choice when it comes to how we will leave this experience.

Reimaging Death: Stories and Practical Wisdom for Home Funerals and Green Burials by Lucina Herring has opened a different view for me to consider. The stories and emotions expressed in this book are heartful and painful and brought tears to my eyes as she spoke of preparing her own mother’s end of life.

Honor your loved ones and the Earth by choosing practical, spiritual and eco-friendly after-death care it states! Natural, legal, and innovative after-death care options are transforming the paradigm of the existing funeral industry, helping families and communities recover their instinctive capacity to care for a loved one after death and do so in creative and healing ways.

Reimaging Death offers stories and guidance for home funeral vigils, advance after-death care directives, green burials, and conscious dying. When we bring art and beauty, meaningful ritual, and joy to ease our loss and sorrow, we are greening the gateway of death and returning home to ourselves, to the wisdom of our bodies, and to the earth.

Lucinda Herring has worked at the cutting edge of the green funeral movement for more than twenty years, beginning with others in the 1990s to quietly care for loved ones after death.  Today she is one of the leading voices for more healing and ecological ways to care for our dead.

Herring is a home funeral/green disposition consultant and guide, an interfaith minister, and a licensed funeral director in the state of Washington. She speaks regularly about her work and through her company Limina LLC-Thresholds Consulting and Ministry. She offers Advance After-Death Care planning, home funeral/green disposition education and training, and celebrant/ministerial services for families and communities who are reclaiming their innate right to care for each other and the earth at the end of life.

“For all who long to experience death as a natural and sacred part of life, Reimaging Death is the ideal handbook to inform, inspire, and ignite a new vision for our final passage. It is a beacon of hope, possibility, and renewal.” – Karen M. Wyatt. M.D., author of the award-winning What Really Matters, hospice physician and founder of End of Life University

“Read this book to understand the vast possibilities for beauty around the event of death. Lucinda Herring’s writing is clear and precise and infused with love. It may even change your life!” – Katrina Spade, founder, and CEO of Recompose, a Public-Benefit Corporation project working to transform the end-of-life experience.

“Stories are fuel, and balm, to social movements. That’s why we need more stories about reclaiming death care practices that heal our connection to death and recognize our relationship to the earth. With hands-on knowledge, Lucinda Herring heeds the call.” – Suzanne Kelly, author of Greening Death: Reclaiming Burial Practices and Restoring Our Tie to the Earth

As an avid reader, I am continually seeking out teachings that will benefit life on a whole. It has been a process to obtain knowledge to share with others on my journey. The date was April 26, 2011, when I ordered Sacred Woman. I have no recall to when I started, but I finished reading it on June 2, 2011. I was mesmerized by the message I received. As a seeker of life and always searching for the ‘why,’  I believe the Universe supplies the books I am drawn to read

Reflecting on eight years and where I was on my path, I realize today as I am a Sacred Woman all Woman are Sacred as well. In most books that I read, there is a message, an ‘aha’ moment, some insight and delight in the story that I connect to from within.

The books I have read are many. With discernment, I take what resonates with me as teaching that I need. In all of life, there are moments to reflect on later that opens the way to follow. This is what I receive from books. Life is fun when we escape into a good read. Enjoy…

The Teachings of Gary R. Renard

IMG_6959October 20, 2008, I finished reading, The Disappearance of the Universe: Straight Talk about Illusions, Past Lives, Religion, Sex, Politics, and the Miracles of Forgiveness. His teachings inspired me, and within one week I read his second book, Your Immortal Reality: How to Break the Cycle of Birth and Death.

Life took me on a journey of profound discovery and reading of many teachers on different levels of being; spiritual, health, diet, religion, metaphysical expansion and growth of self. There are so many teachings that I have acquired from a vast amount of authors that I am amazed myself that I have read all of these books.

In this blog and future blogs, I hope we can all open to the possibility of expansion and growth of self as well. All it would take is to go within and see what author or book can offer us guidance during challenging times in our lives. Especially, during the holiday season! As an avid reader and collector of the written word through books, I have healed, grown and empowered myself through many teachings. We can all benefit from our discernment in matters of our own lives and what we need to improve.

In April of 2018, I came across another book that he had written. It was April 17, 2018; I finished reading The Lifetimes When Jesus and Buddha Knew Each Other: A History of Mighty Companions. I learned through this book that there had been a trilogy and purchased, LOVE, Has Forgotten No One: The Answer to Life. Amazed and thrilled at the information in these books, I finished reading LOVE Has Forgotten No One, on April 29, 2018.

img_8771-1

The Disappearance of the Universe: Straight Talk about Illusions, Past Lives, Religion, Sex, Politics, and the Miracles of Forgiveness by Gary R. Renard states the following message to ponder. What would you do if you were sitting quietly in your living room when a mysterious couple appeared from out of nowhere – and then told you they were “ascended masters” who had come to reveal some shocking secrets of existence and teach you the miraculous powers of advanced forgiveness? Would you call the cops? Call a psychiatrist? Call out for pizza?

When two such teachers appeared before Gary Renard in 1992, he chose to listen to them (and ask a lot of impertinent questions). The result is this startling book: an extraordinary record of 17 mind-bending conversations that took place over nearly a decade, reorienting the author’s life and giving the world an uncompromising introduction to a spiritual teaching destined to change human history.

In the early 1990s, Gary R. Renard underwent a powerful spiritual awakening. As instructed, he slowly and carefully wrote The Disappearance of the Universe over a period of nine years. Today he is a best-selling author, and his books are considered by students of A Course in Miracles all over the world to be the “Cliff Notes” for the Course, empowering them to read, understand, and apply the Course’s profound teachings to their everyday lives in a practical way.

A winner of the Infinity Foundation Spirit Award, Gary has spoken in 44 states and 31 countries and has been described as one of the most interesting and courageous spiritual speakers in the world. You can check him out www.GaryRenard.com

img_8769

In this book, Your Immortal Reality: How to Break the Cycle of Birth and Death. In this fascinating book, Gary Renard and his Ascended Masters Teachers, Arten and Pursah, teach you how to integrate advanced spiritual principles into your everyday life. Doing so leads beyond theory to an experience of the Divine and the undoing of the ego. Your progress will be accelerated to such a degree that, with continued practice, you can’t help but stop the need to reincarnate once and for all.

Like Gary’s first book, The Disappearance of the Universe, this work elaborates on the teachings of two spiritual classics, The Gospel of Thomas and A Course in Miracles. By focusing on a unique brand of quantum forgiveness, rather than the old-fashioned kind, and taking the understanding of the importance of thought up to a whole new level, your goal will become nothing less than to break the cycle of birth and death.

img_8768

Love Has Forgotten No one; The Answer to Life is the final installment of his trilogy: a fascinating roller-coaster ride to the mysterious truth behind the modern spiritual masterpiece A Course in Miracles. His teachers, Ascended Masters Arten and Pursah, will take you on a whirlwind tour of the afterlife; teach you a method that will, with practice, melt away all of your past bad karma; and reveal the “missing ingredient” to the favorite self-help techniques of today.

In The Lifetimes When Jesus and Buddha Knew Each Other; A History of Mighty Companions. Two and a half decades ago, Ascended Master Teachers Arten and Pursah appeared to Gary Renard and held series of conversations with him that elaborated on the teachings of two spiritual classics, The Gospel of Thomas and A Course in Miracles. Gary immortalized what he learned in the books of his best-selling series: The Disappearance of the Universe, Your Immortal Reality and Love Has Forgotten No One. This fourth book is a companion to the original trilogy, yet written to stand alone, an invitation, for new readers into this fascinating work.

This book explores six of the lifetimes in which the incarnations of Jesus and Buddha lived together, beginning in 700 B.C. when they were known as Saka and Hiroji. Arten and Pursah, through the spiritual lessons that Jesus and Buddha learn on their path, clarify the difference between duality and non-duality. When you can internalize these lessons, you will be saved countless years in your spiritual development.
