Given In The Temple, by Eleanor L. Shumway, Guardian in Chief, August 18, 2013
We have just finished a very powerful Convention week. I watched with interest as we all responded to these high forces being poured in on us as we met in all kinds of social or spiritual configurations. There were times when, I am sure, it felt snarly, not spiritual. It can feel as if we were eating ten dark chocolate bars at once! However, now we have time to begin the digestion process, and to put into practice the charges we have been handed. Continue reading

Dear Temple-sisters and –brothers, dear friends,
Today as in past times we see the same picture.
“As far back in the annals of time as sacred and profane history can take you, and aeons before any of the records now recognized as authentic history were even thought out and tabulated; Continue reading

Convention has always been an uplifting battle of one sort or another. As the Convention forces converge on this Center, all of us have felt those feelings of intense pressure that we misinterpret as being the result of our neighbor’s stereo or dog, or the pressure of life and our own weariness, or someone’s remark about a particular act of ours. Caught in the heat of the moment it is very difficult to step back onto the plane of forces to see how the high gathering energy is impacting our actions. But the most important first step we can take is that of knowing that such a step is even possible and that we can then have a different kind of control over our own reactions. Continue reading
Thanks to a new translation from LES ÉDITIONS DU IIIe MILLÉNAIRE, the influential Russian novel “Two Lives” is now available in French. The four-volume edition may be purchased through Agence du livre.
Many Russian-speaking members and friends of the Temple have been inspired by K. E. Antarova’s “Two Lives” and the profound principles of personal moral and ethical progress outlined therein. Written during the 1940s, it was not widely published in Russia until 1993. Now, this new translation into French makes the book accessible to a much wider audience than it has heretofore enjoyed.

Many of us have computers, IPads, smart phones and email, Twitter, YouTube, and endless other social sites.
Through all of these we regularly get inspirational, thought-provoking material sent by friends, as well as commercial sales pitches and other kinds of junk mail that can clog our devices. However, I have recently gotten some of the former, thought-provoking variety that made me stop and think about the message in conjunction with our teachings. I want to share them with you and then, using these messages as a springboard, explore some of our teachings, perhaps from a different perspective. Continue reading

About one hundred fifteen years ago the founding of The Temple took place in Syracuse, New York. The Master tells us it took many incarnations to gather together in one place the particular souls necessary to commence the work, which was, and still is, the 24/7 living of the Golden Rule. In 1903, He directed Dr. Dower and Francia LaDue to move the headquarters to a selected spot on the West Coast, Halcyon, where the residents could develop a model of harmonious living that integrates the Golden Rule and the Unity of all life into daily, hourly practice. For one hundred ten years members and friends continue to strive toward that goal. Continue reading
