Presidents Report - October 2011

posted 15 Oct 2011, 22:47 by Sunshine Coast Lodge Theosophical Society Australia

Dear Friends,

This is my last report to you as president of our lodge.  How rewarding these past 2 years have been for me - I have noticed quite a shift in my consciousness and I recommend  to all of you to consider doing service and reap the benefits that come from contributing and helping to keep our great organization flourishing.  I encourage you to stand for our committee.  Our AGM will be on the last Thur of Nov i.e. 24 Nov. and nominations may be received any time until the date of the meeting. See details on page 1 of this bulletin.              

Our lodge continues in many ways to grow and evolve.  You committee has been streamlining many of the procedures that an expanding lodge requires and we feel we have a solid foundation now to further our evolution as we go forth together.  Who knows what the future will bring as we live out our journey in this amazing world.   Whilst we need to be aware of the push factors  (including all the great teachers and servers ) that have brought us to where we are as a society, we also need to remind ourselves as individuals that it is up to us to collectively take our lodge forward.  By raising one’s own consciousness, we not only work off our karmic debts but at the same time we assist in the evolution of our own soul and the evolution of the group consciousness of humanity.  We can all look back and see in our own country how the collective consciousness of Australians in the past decade has changed and no doubt it will continue to change depending on our group consciousness as a nation.

As we communicate with each other sometimes energy becomes blocked and we just need to let go of what we consider to be right, i.e. letting go of the energy and not being so egocentric. Backtracking ones thoughts and actions without any emotion is a great way to discover why there was tension and we may just discover how egocentric we are. This awareness maybe a step in our transformation.   As the German Mystics reminds us when we abandon the I/Me/Mine Mindset we make ourselves progressively open of receiving grace.

I would like to take this opportunity to sincerely thank our committee for their support and hard work over the past two years of my presidency and also to our members and those of you who supported our weekly meetings at both Buderim and Tewantin.   All the very best to each and every one of you and may the upcoming Christmas message abide in each of you.

With love
