|the Chapel of Spiritual Being|
As with most human communities, Greenwoods Village has a place to come to to contemplate the infinite and the divine. We are a diverse people and believe that power expresses itself in many and various ways; that it is proper to learn of the many ways people interpret and celebrate their spiritual natures, in hopes that you may individually find within yourselves your own spark of divinity.
Would you help a hungry person if it cost you no money and only a few moments of your time?
Greenwoods Village supports this most noble cause and encourages you to join us.
The Hunger Site is owned and operated by Tim Kunin and Greg Hesterberg, co-owners of CharityUSA.com and are dedicated in the fight to end world hunger.
The Hunger Site focuses the power of the Internet on a specific humanitarian need; the eradication of world hunger. To date more that 200 million visitors have given more than 300 million cups of food.
The staple food funded by The Hunger Site is paid for by site sponsors and is distributed to those in need by Mercy Corps and America's Second Harvest. 100% of funding from sponsor banner advertising goes to our charity partners. Funds are split between these organizations and go to the aid of hungry people in over 74 countries, including those in Africa, Asia, Eastern Europe, the Middle East, Latin America and North America.
You only need to go to their site and push the golden button to add one more donation to the cause. It is totally free to you. If you feel in a buying mood; check out their sponsors and help even more.
The Geography of Religion
We are proud to announce the Geography of Religion. This self contained unit is a fascinating reference to study the components of a vast array of the world's religions and beliefs. Through special permission of the creator and webmaster of the original site at Morehead State University, we are able to bring it to you and hope you take advantage of its wealth of information to further your studies of how, despite the difference in details, humanity continues to seek understanding of the Divine.
Look not at the vastness of the universe and say,
"I am so small"...
Look rather into creation and say, "I'm a part of it all"...!
Rev. Wm. Douglas Mefford, ULC
"Whoever knows everything but lacks within lacks everything."
Gospel of Thomas, saying 67
"The difference between what we do and what we are capable of doing would suffice to solve most of the world's problems."
"Adopting an attitude of universal responsibility is essentially a personal matter. The real test of compassion is not what we say in abstract discussions but how we conduct ourselves in daily life."
His Holiness the Dalai Lama
"Since thou art not sure of a minute, throw not away an hour."
Free from self-will, aggressiveness, arrogance, anger and the lust to possess people or things, he is at peace with himself and others and enters into the unitive state. United with Brahman, ever joyful, beyond the reach of desire and sorrow, he has equal regard for every living creature and attains supreme devotion to me. By loving me he comes to know me truly; then he knows my glory and enters into my boundless being. All his acts are performed in my service, and through my grace he wins eternal life.
Bhagavad Gita 18:53-56
Before you speak,
it is necessary for you to listen,
for God speaks in the silence of the heart.
He who destroys but a single life
is as if he had destroyed the whole world,
He who saves but a single life
is as if he had saved the whole world.
Re-examine all you have been told...
Dismiss what insults your Soul.
