The Spiritual Practice of Conscious Giving is an invitation to deepen our connection with Spirit and know that Its infinite good is already within us; to give with an open, joyful, loving heart; and grow by stretching our consciousness in the arena of giving.
In the words of Ernest Holmes, “There is an Infinite Law of the Spirit, or Law of Life, which tends to multiply our gifts, because in so doing It multiplies Its own experience, Its own pleasure, Its own fruition.” This quote reminds us that, in giving, we are avenues of Divine distribution, and Spirit experiences the fruits of Its givingness through us. How wonderful is that!
At Oakland Center for Spiritual Living we offer many ways for each of us to explore Conscious Giving. One way of giving is to give your time. We hope you find an area of service that opens your heart, as you share your gift of self with others. We invite you to look over service opportunities and get involved with any that interest you.
We also challenge each other to grow through giving financially. This is one of the greatest stretches many of us make to expand our ability to accept more Good. By exploring the truth about money and what it stands for in our lives we have the opportunity to gain freedom from it having power over us. Instead we may expand our understanding of prosperity to take us beyond money alone and truly reflect the abundant nature of Life itself, and our right to live abundant lives.
We encourage you to practice the art of giving by pledging or tithing to where you are Spiritually fed. If that happens to be Oakland Center for Spiritual Living, then we invite you to give by mail or the next time you come to church, or during our annual Community Commitment Campaign.
For your convienience, you may give to Oakland Center for Spiritual Living using your credit card.
