When we learn to live these archetypes within ourselves, we will begin to heal ourselves and our fragmented world. The following four principles, each based on an archetype, comprise what I call the Four-Fold Way: 1. 2. 3. 4. Show up, or choose to be present. Being present allows us to access the human resources of power, presence, and communication. This is the way of the Warrior. Pay attention to what has heart and meaning. Paying attention opens us to the human resources of love, gratitude, acknowledgement, and validation. This is the way of the Healer. Tell the truth without blame or judgment. Nonjudgmental truthfulness maintains our authenticity, and develops our inner vision and intuition. This is the way of the Visionary. Be open to outcome, not attached to outcome. Openness and nonattachment helps us recover the human resources of wisdom and objectivity. This is the way of the Teacher. When we understand these universal experiences, we are better able to respect the diverse ways in which these shared themes are expressed by all people.

Sunday, November 23, 2014 1st Reading: Jonah 2:1-11 Gospel: Matthew 8:23-27 SIFA (Praise) May we always remember those who have gone before us; May we be inspired by their vision and valor; May their lives continuously remind us That Service is More Important Than Success; That People Are More Important Than Possessions; That Principle Is More Important Than Power. May whatever we do be shaped and molded by honesty, competence and commitment. May our children and our children’s children carry forth with pride, the nobility of our history and tradition. To the Creator of all of us, we dedicate our lives to make this world better and more beautiful.
