We welcome 2022 with optimism and an open heart. Through the grace of God, MSIA is doing well. John Morton and Paul Kaye did a marvelous and very well-received New Year’s Eve Event on December 31 that you can view online if you missed it, or want to view it again in 2022 for inspiration.
What will this New Year bring? We are holding the Light that sometime this year will be a normalization of COVID that allows for more in-person events to take place in complete safety. In the meantime, MSIA and PTS will continue their outpouring of online courses and events all designed to share the Traveler’s teachings. Check the MSIA calendar and please keep an eye out for update emails for the latest information. We would like to particularly point out these events:
- The Harmonic Self: Multidimensional Resonance (once a month all this year)
- The Spontaneous Self: Life as Improv – and 8-week Self-paced evening class that is currently live
- Plus, these weekly offerings (free of charge and open to the public): https://www.peacelabyrinth.org/events
And don’t forget to tune in each morning to Blessings This Day with John and Leigh at 9:00 AM PST.
The feedback on our online offerings has been tremendously positive. It was particularly gratifying to receive this one:
I would like to once again thank you for the enormous service you provide (often free of charge or for me affordable prices) on an ongoing basis. I have been a huge beneficiary of it and so I am deeply grateful to you. Your approach makes many of J-R‘s teachings and MSIA‘s teachings more accessible to me. I struggle to find the right words, but I guess I am easily uncomfortable with a certain type of “churchiness“ or cultishness, and you are to me, in a way, a cultural bridge. Your serenity, loving kindness, clarity, honesty and “unadornedess” make me feel safe and on solid ground.
Seeding cards are a great way to share your loving to family and friends who are going through challenges or could just use a boost of support for their dreams. Someone shared with us that her friends asked for seeding cards for their Christmas gifts this past year.
If you haven’t checked out That Which Is (TWI) yet, this new year may be the time to give yourself a treat. TWI is your online source of the Traveler’s teachings conveniently available through your computer or smartphone. TWI Premium gives you access to an extensive library of J-R’s and John’s content including MSIA classics, meditations, collections, interviews, current and past SATs, Ministers and Initiates seminars, recordings of John’s latest live events, and so much more – all for only $9.99/month. You can experience the convenience of TWI even if you are not ready to subscribe, as much of the content is freely accessible to guests. And if you already subscribe to TWI Premium, tell a friend about it, or better yet, gift them a subscription for a month or more by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org or calling the MSIA office at (323) 737-4055.
In the last couple of weeks, some folks have asked how to include MSIA in their estate planning. We have been blessed to receive many bequests over the years. The Presidency has directed most of them into the J-R Legacy Fund which is designed to assure the longevity of the teachings for many decades.
It is pretty straightforward to designate MSIA as a beneficiary in your will. There is a lot of flexibility on how you can do this, e.g., as a percentage of your estate, a gift of a specific dollar amount or a specific asset, or you can make a gift from the balance or residue of your estate. You can give to MSIA without any conditions or designate where the bequest is to be applied, such as for the John-Roger Legacy Fund or Heartfelt Foundation. Feel free to contact Mark Lurie at email@example.com, if you have any questions.
When designating MSIA as a bequest beneficiary use this information:
The Church of the Movement of Spiritual Inner Awareness
3500 W. Adams Blvd.
Los Angeles, CA 90018
Federal Tax ID no. 23-7137833
As always, please join us in placing this all in the Light for the Highest Good. And thank you for standing together in God’s Light, love and Sound, sharing the grace of the Traveler’s teachings throughout the world.
The MSIA Presidency – Paul, Vincent, and Mark
