COLLEGE OF METAPHYSICS, Holidays at the College
MERRY MENTAL CHRISTMAS!
|A MENTAL WHAT? |
The Christmas Season experience at the College of Metaphysics is one that every student in the School of Metaphysics must experience at least once, and hopefully multiple times. Since giving sets all the Universal Laws into motion, those present for Christmas 2005 at the College experienced the Laws at work as generosity abounded. The learning labs this year were the annual Dallas County Toys for Tots drive, Christmas In the Dome, making and delivering bread to the local community, Christmas caroling to Buffalo businesses, Christmas Day, One Voice, and the annual General Assembly.
|TOYS FOR TOTS |
The Law of Abundance is like having ten hamburgers, and you can only eat one, so you give the other nine to others who will eat them. The College aligned with this Law by giving its ten-fold monetary wealth to Dallas Countys annual Toys For Tots drive, helping local families in need experience a merry Christmas. The money purchases toys for the children of families who are pre-selected by the Buffalo Neighborhood Center based on income and other requirements. The college students gave two full days of their time to unpack toys, set them up retail store style, and serve parents coming in with coupons to select gifts for their children.
|CHRISTMAS IN THE PEACE DOME |
Because of the college students bright lights and love, four of the local Toys for Tots volunteers attended and brought friends to Christmas In the Dome! It was a joy receiving the public to the annual musical presentation. College student Shawn Smith played a key role singing his first solo as well as a duet with Talina Woods, Director of the Lexington, Kentucky school center. Shawn learned to lead with his voice in group singing, giving a focal point of connection for one of the songs. Regarding his experience Shawn said, I felt a lot of love singing with Talina, and I am a little more comfortable now with singing.
|UNIVERSAL LAWS AT WORK WITH THE BAKING OF BREAD |
For 20 years, the College of Metaphysics has baked and delivered homemade bread rolls to local families. The Law of Self Expression is the divine birthright of each individual to fulfill their purpose or plan in life to be like the Creator. Dr. Pam Blosser, President of the School of Metaphysics and Northern Area Director, present for this years magnanimous experience, actively set into motion the Law of Self Expression using her dharma. She said she used her dharma of attending very consciously by attending to the whole flow of the breadmaking process. Dr. Pam also gave her dharma by attending to the bread count so the College would have enough bread for everyone and also by organizing the bread delivery routes.
In delivering the bread, College student Karen Mosby sees it as a way to get out and meet people. She says, Its important for people around the College to know about the School, as in any city. Delivering bread gives them opportunity to know us. College student Jesse Kern was touched when one of the neighbors invited him and Dr. Terry in. Ms. Dugan was so friendly. She invited us in and even asked us to help her with a computer program that wasnt responding. That told me how warm and friendly she is and how well appreciated we are in the community.
|OLD TIME CAROLING |
Other Christmas cooking occurred on campus. Ten-year-old Hezekiah Condron and seven-year-old Leah Pawlus made a chocolate cake for dessert. Inspired by the cooking tools she received for Christmas, Leah came prepared with her own baked goods as a gift. She and Hezekiah even started filming a cooking show. Since the Law of Evolution shows that all of creation is continually improving and becoming greater, these Indigos were a demonstration of this Law just by being the creative, exploratory geniuses they are!
|CHRISTMAS DIRECTOR |
Hezekiah Condron, 10-year-old college student, served as the first ever, self initiated Christmas Director. Hezekiah made sure the Christmas Tree was up very early, and had everyone check in their presents with him before they went under the tree. His exuberance was a heartwarming expression of a big souls love for learning. We had so many presents under the tree this year. Many others came to the College for Christmas this year making it an experience of light and love. These included Damian Nordmann, Leigh Taylor, John Crainshaw, Jay McCormick, Megan Lytle, Talina Woods, Nicholas Zajac, Walter Hrycaj, Aisha Causey, Christine Brazzell, and Amy and Leah Pawlus.
|CHRISTMAS DREAMS |
On Christmas Day itself, Dr. Christine Madar had a great talk with students from the Indianapolis center about dreams and dream interpretation. She stimulated them to reason more wholistically about dream interpretation and thinking in pictures. Because of what Dr. Christine has to give with dream interpretation and what the students from Indianapolis desire and need to learn, Universal Law brought them together (Dr. Christine is at the dinner table about half the time because of Alexandra). Knowing this, Dr. Christine trusted the Law of Attraction and poured forth her dharma of generosity. The Law of Infinity is like when you finish the dishes and someone immediately sets another glass down to be washed. Since these students are very bright lights moving in the world, whos to say how many more people will receive what Dr. Christine gave them on that blessed Christmas evening?
|WORLD CONNECTEDNESS THROUGH THE PEACE COVENANT |
A week after Christmas Day comes January first, and the start of a new year. For the past ten years, the School of Metaphysics has brought the Universal Hour of Peace to the world from 11:30 PM, December 31 through 12:30 AM, January 1 as a way for people of all races, nationalities, and creeds to practice peace. Since the Worlds Peace Dome was dedicated on October 11, 2003, One Voice, the simultaneous reading of the Universal Peace Covenant, was added at 12:00 midnight to the Universal Hour of Peace. At the College of Metaphysics, One Voice is a beautiful resonance of peace that moves across the face of the earth through the Peace Dome and the Energetic Campus. Beginning at 4:00 AM Central Standard Time on December 31, College of Metaphysics residents read or recite the Universal Peace Covenant as each time zone rings in the new year. Sometimes this is every half hour, sometimes its every hour, and occasionally it occurs every 15 minutes.
|BUDDING DIRECTORS |
General Assembly 2006 at the College of Metaphysics was a progressive experience of connectedness and love. (See related article on another page.) General Assembly affords all the college students whether they have been teachers or directors to be with the leaders of the School of Metaphysics school centers. When speaking about his experience of service during the weekend, Sebastien stated, I want to make service and giving a permanent part of my consciousness. Bryon appreciated being present for this pace setting meeting as it gave him the opportunity to interact with the directors, visiting with them about their experiences in the centers and promoting the Powers of Ten in their cities. He also mentioned, Sebastien and I talked about our vision of the future of the School of Metaphysics with the Intuitive Reports. Regarding this Sebastien said, In attending the special Intuitive Conductor/Reporter ceremony, I saw the beauty of the Intuitive Reports and the service that they are. Bryon found it very fulfilling to support General Assembly. I could perceive the importance of the event, he said, and it is something I hope to be [attending] next year. Knowing that I could give my energy to it made me feel that I was a part of something significant that contributed to the whole School of Metaphysics.
|GREATER PURPOSE REALIZED |
In evaluating what he understood from his Christmas season experiences at the College of Metaphysics, Jesse has a greater desire to be in his mind rather than his brain to experience that mental or mind Christmas that Dr. Dan desires for all students at the College to receive. When I am in my mind, I am at peace with myself and others. The questions I ask are conscious and reasonable, and I can discern when I am in the present, rather than the past and/or future. Before coming to the College of Metaphysics to study full time, this wasnt even in my thinking. I am grateful for my Christmas 2005 experiences that were my laboratory to apply what my teachers are teaching me.
|GRADUATES FROM THE SCHOOL OF METAPHYSICS |
Jennifer Childers has completed a year and a half of study at the College and is now directing the Palatine School of Metaphysics. Because of what she learned at the College, she is full of vision and ready to do the work. Through the teachers at the College of Metaphysics a vision moved inside [me] from the inside out. It has now become my own vision, that I own, a vision of the School of Metaphysics.
Shawn Smith has completed a year of study at the College of Metaphysics and is going to establish the Cincinnati, Ohio School of Metaphysics. Both Jennifer and Shawn have goals to add to what they have learned at the College of Metaphysics, activating the Law of Prosperity. In going out to the field to teach and pass on what they have learned and gained, both Jennifer and Shawn are putting their soul growth and spiritual development first, fulfilling the Complete Law seek ye first the Kingdom of Heaven, and all else shall be added unto you (Matthew 6:33).
