in New York and New Jersey on my way home to Californina from Guyana,
made my seminar tour complete. A blue sky and the warm April sun
greeted me during my one-week visits with UNI students and friends.
A Risen Consciousness For The New Millennium
was the title of a seminar UNI student, Rev Kennard Davis, minister of
Truth Center For Higher Consciousness, set up at the restaurant
For Goodness Steak in Brooklyn. With Hilton Hamordingís
soul stirring musical accompaniment I sailed into this deep
philosophical subject and shared.
You and I are the creators of the new millennium! We live in this
risen consciousness by being in control of our thoughts, words and
We live using divine wisdom NOW the only time existing. We listen to
god within and we know our priorities. Often we think we need to
teach, preach and heal the world outside of us but in reality there is
only the world within us, ours individually. That is why we knowingly
affirm: Now there is peace on Earth and it began with ME! Since
we are practitioners, we first heal ourselves!
What a joy to greet among a full house: UNI students Rev Patricia
Gibson from Atlanta, Rev Roland Edmond from Florida and New York, Rev
Dr Louis Knight from New York and Rev Kennard Davidís wife Claire,
treasurer of the Truth Center For Higher Consciousness,
Marjorie Jones, mother-in-law of Rev Kennard and sweet little grandson
Wherever I travel there is a home awaiting me. In New York artist
Dina John, daughter of UNI student Rev Evelyn John, minister of New
Life Center Of Truth lovingly hosted me. Dina and I many spent
happy hours together discussing philosophy; she matriculated as a UNI
To speak in the vivid New Life Center Of Truth in Brooklyn
is always a spectacularly honorable event. Founder and minister Rev
John loves life. This is reflected in her enthusiastic congregation
and her successful ministry. In my Sunday morning talk on Tithing
I said tithing is not only giving money, tithing is being our divine
self lovingly sharing a smile, speaking an encouraging word to someone
who is unhappy. Tithing is being a caring listener for a friend who
likes to talk or doing little treats for even someone we do not know
very well. Unconditional giving is priming our own pump with the
recognition of our independent wealth. We live what we believe about
ourselves, we live the truth that we are perfection in spirit, mind
From Brooklyn a caring church member from Rev Johnís church
drove me to East Orange, New Jersey. There in the afternoon service
Rev Egerton I had missed meeting in her church in Guyana welcomed
me along with her daughter UNI student Joy Clarke and UNI student
Patricia Shivdat. In my talk to the congregation I referred to the
teachings of Jesus, saying the kingdom of god dwells in every man, we
are kings, we are gods, we are all that god is. We sang I am God,
God I am and celebrated the oneness of the congregation.
From the Temple of the Abundant Life, minister and founder
Rev Ingrid Chance was honored on her tenth anniversary of God
Unlimited ordination and in a circle of six UNI student we held hands:
Rev Egerton, Rev Chance with her assistant minister UNI student Rev
Celestine Morgan, UNI students Joy Clarke and Particia Shivdat and
myself. A lovely dinner was offered to ministers, teachers and
Rev Patricia Shivdat and her husband Latchman generously hosted my
two-day stay in New Jersey.
Among my visits in Brooklyn were meeting with Rev Dr Marie Ulah
Heiliger and her husband Winfred a most lovely couple I had heard
much about and UNI student Julia Melchoir who is finishing her
Bachelor of Philosophy degree.
My visit at the Truth Center of Divine Awareness with
minister Rev Marva Edmonds and at the Divine Center Of Truth with
Rev Dr Joy Thomas was entirely too short. In both churches we had
adventurous philosophical discussions. Referring to the Bible story of
Adam and Eve, we discussed the symbology of our human game, eating of
the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. We watch TV, we read the
newspapers, we listen to tales of woe and pretend to live in paradise.
The Garden of Eden is right within us. We are gods, we are absolute
and to intellectually understand this concept, we unlimit ourselves.
We are divine, we are spirit, we are all that is, both good and evil,
all according to our belief, each an IS, our unchangeable reality.
I delighted to see how all UNI students share their godself. The
Christ consciousness of Jesus is in their heart. They know the Christ
consciousness is their reality and not the physical man Jesus.
We are a wonderful spiritual family god unlimited in all that we
