A WARM Welcome to the Readers, Students,

and Friends of Spiritual Climate!

Did I say WARM? Let me tell you, it’s been so hot in Phoenix that you can’t even get people to laugh about it by bringing up the Robin Williams bit about loving the feeling of sweat pouring down the crack of your ass like Niagara Falls! THAT is hot, and the humidity with it has made us feel like we are in a never ending sauna! So much for the physical climate around here, think you get the picture!

The Spiritual Climate, though, has been just as hot, with Dr. Strickler delivering discourses that kick open doors to ever increasing knowledge as we traveled through the Dog Days of our Holy Season of the Q- Tradition brought in by the heliocentric rising of the star Sirius from July 23 through September 9. This time of year brings a different quality of intensity to the forefront, and this year has not been an especially easy one for the Staff of Spiritual Climate. There have been Emergency Room visits, emergency surgeries, dental problems, births, and serious illnesses among family and friends of us all. It seems each one of us has been challenged by drastic changes, demands and fluctuations within our workplaces and the judicial system has been making its presence known as well. Car repairs, late or lost checks, incompetent management, communication mix ups, plumbing and air conditioning problems, banking errors, last minute changes in plans. . . You name it, it probably happened to one of us over the past few weeks, but as we have been so sternly warned, we did not ask, nor even think, the question “Can it get any worse?” The good news is that we all managed to survive the down pouring of energies and are now experiencing the gradual integration of these energies into our personal spheres, as we contemplate the quickly approaching night of Hallow’s Eve, one of the two “darkest” nights of the year.

It is in that spirit that we would like to welcome you back to the Spiritual Climate Newsletter and ask for your understanding for our absence publicly both on the net and in your e-mail box with a monthly publication of our newsletter. Dr. Strickler has been taken to task during a new stage of recovery from his medical event of three years ago; there is a phase of a recovery, apparently, for people who have suffered a stroke which is called ‘awakening’. For Dr. Strickler it is been a very awkward accumulation of intermittent awareness these past ten months since it started off including all of the eerie recognitions that it seems to bring. In his words, he has finally come to some small realization that this medical physical event was dangerous and threatened the continued existence of his physical body and his ability to participate in this world.

Now that we are back in publication, after much soul searching and meetings with the staff of writers and contributors to the Spiritual Climate Newsletter we are going to publish bimonthly editions, or in other words, at two months intervals. This decision has come with some angst due to the popularity we have learned our newsletter has, since it is forwarded to parts and people unknown around the world. That being said, be it known that the writers and contributors are eager and excited for the continued publication of the Spiritual Climate Newsletter. Because of the ever increasing productivity demands from their employers, however, one has to recognize that something cannot be created out of nothing. Productivity inflation is encroaching and usurping the time, space and freedom of all individuals, masterminded by those who live parasitically off of the productive powers of labor and the nonproductive overhead of management.

Our solution for the time being is simple: you can look forward to receiving new editions of the Spiritual Climate Newsletter on a bimonthly basis.

IN THIS EDITION

The October 2007 Edition of the Spiritual Climate Newsletter comes to you HOT off the presses with the following articles:

Dr. Strickler brilliantly leads off the October 2007 Edition with a look at contemplation, stimulated by a trip back to the town of his birth this past June in his article “IN DEFENSIO DE COMTEMPLATIO”.

In an article entitled THE CHOICE IS YOURS: PART 2”, Christine Ford challenges you to examine the path you are walking, or perhaps more appropriately put, sleep walking, and gives you some clues on how to make choices that just might help you wake up!

Wendy Ford asks a plethora of seemingly unanswerable questions as she explores the miasma of the ambiguity of our current healthcare system in her article PLEASE, CAN ANYONE EXPLAIN THIS TO ME?

In his article entitled “FEAR’S REBELLION”, Adam Crosthwaite takes a thoughtful look at fear and the barriers and limitations fear can precipitate within one’s life if not checked, citing his own experiences to illustrate his words.

Also we would also like to extend a warm thank-you for My Favorite Ezines for counting our Newsletter in their Directory of listings and the beautiful summary they included.

As always, we invite you to grab a cup, mug, glass or thermos of your favorite beverage, settle down into that comfy computer chair, and enjoy the ponderings and wanderings we have put together to share with you as you indulge this wonderfully HOT October 2007 Edition of the Spiritual Climate Newsletter.

The Staff of Spiritual Climate would like to welcome you to the wonders of Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness available to all who seek.

Welcome to the OCTOBER 2007 EDITION of

the SPIRITUAL CLIMATE NEWSLETTER

Blessings to all!

Christine Ford

Welcome Friends, Students, and Readers of

Spiritual Climate!

Dr. Strickler asked me to extend a note of appreciation to Patty for her generous Donation of a much needed computer to the Institute of Spiritual Climate and he would also like to extend a warm thank-you for My Favorite Ezines  for counting our Newsletter in their Directory of listings and the beautiful summary they included.

IN THIS EDITION:

Welcome to our BLAST FROM THE PAST Edition from our Archives

that are not published yet on the net.

  There are events in each of our lives that are so impactual, so totally life altering, that once experienced, the world and everything in it, indeed, the very sight, sound, and fabric of life, will never be the same.  Being present at the birth of a child, witnessing the death of a loved one, experiencing the lights come on in the mind, and heart, of a child, the strong, reassuring warmth of an embrace, the knowing in an exchanged glance;  miracles both large and small, experiences we participate in each and every day, knowingly or unknowingly, consciously or unconsciously.  We become somehow complacent with these miraculous events, busily flying through the day, AND through life, without being thankful for nor acknowledging the grace and power which Wills our lives into being, the Living Presence of the One Almighty God who breathes and sustains life and all of creation, who expresses through US as we participate in the eternal, ongoing co-creation of Genesis.  

What a sorrowful image, the ultimate example of “missing the mark”, which in Hebrew is the definition of the word SIN! To be in the presence of the miraculous each and every moment of each and every day, but to be oblivious to the Beauty and Truth of that uplifting experience!  To walk hand in hand, to walk WITHIN the Power of the One God, and to take it for granted, never seeking to understand or have the wisdom necessary to truly be at one with the Creator. 

What a sad, shallow existence we have been programmed to lead, what an incredibly isolated feeling that creates, causing us to run from one quick fix to another, constantly, hopelessly seeking that which will complete us, fulfill us.  Our lives become nothing more than an automatic response to daily events, reactions rather than actions, a confusing cacophony of knee jerk habitual responses.  We never find that which we seek, and just continue in the never ending cycle of feeling there has to be more, but we never pause long enough in our frantic search to discover just what that “more” is!

The pattern continues, sunrise to sunset, day in, day out, until perhaps we are blessed with an experience so profound and powerful that our perception is altered and we are unable to, for one single moment, deny the existence and presence of the Life Power moving through us. There is the sudden and overwhelming knowing that the miraculous is around us and within us, supporting us and guiding us, sustaining us and nurturing us, holding us and providing all that we need to live, if only we surrender to and work in accordance with Its Will.

These articles are a series related to two healings which took place within our class with Dr. Strickler and just such a life altering experience, for indeed, we were witness to and participants in the healings that were nothing short of miraculous events.  Did Dr. Strickler “perform” these miracles?  Indeed, there was no “performance” about it, nor would Dr. Strickler take credit in any way for the energy and power which flowed through him.  Did he allow himself to be used as a conduit and a knowing director of Will, indeed a co-creator of these miraculous events?  Did he open himself to the Life Sustaining Power of the One as he became a direct channel for that power to flow?  Ah, yes!  And those of us who were granted the privilege and honor of witnessing the events were healed as well, for we were given a rare, beautiful glimpse of what it truly is to be in the awesome presence of some of the Power of God.

Though voicing our experience in words falls totally short of being there, we wanted to attempt somehow to convey to you the incredible evenings of October 14, 2003 and November 18, 2003, hopefully sharing with you the awe, wonder, and inspiration we came away from the events with.  We were truly witnesses to the miraculous, not the everyday kind of miracle which we so often miss, but of magnitude and grace far beyond the scope of the mundane and usual.  We felt the readers of Spiritual Climate were entitled to being graced with whatever portion of those “miracles” we are able to pass on.

First will be presented the healing of “Suzie” on October 14, followed by the healing of Christine on November 18.  In the original Editions of Spiritual Climate Newsletter, these articles were broken down into several Editions, but we wanted to present the whole picture at once in our “Blast from the Past Edition”.  Also, Dr. Strickler has finally consented to let us publish these on our public Blog.

May you be touched by Light, beauty and power of these experiences and events we witnessed and have chosen to share with you.

The Staff of Spiritual Climate would like to welcome you to the wonders of Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness available to all who seek.

Welcome to the JULY  2007 EDITION of

the SPIRITUAL CLIMATE NEWSLETTER

"To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people

and the affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics

and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty,

to find the best in others; to leave the world a little better,

whether by a healthy child, a garden patch,

or a redeemed social condition; to know even one life

has breathed easier because you have lived.

This is the meaning of success!"

 ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

Welcome Friends, Students, and Readers of Spiritual Climate!

Yes, we’re back! Rev. Strickler halted the publication of the newsletter for a few months. I asked him if there was anything I could say or send off to the readers of the newsletter and he said “Not until I decide whether we are going to publish again or not, I have been called into contemplation about my life, my work and relationships and I have some choices to make this year.” He has also expressed that he is coping with some new peculiarities due to the ongoing effects of the embolic stroke his body suffered the late evening of August 22, 2004.

We, the contributors for the newsletter, have been busy maintaining a monthly writing schedule, but he did give us March off. You will likely see a May Edition within a few weeks. I am happy to say, since you are reading this, Rev. Strickler has given the “all systems go”, so welcome to our new look and expect to hear more from us. To quote Rev. Strickler as of recent it’s a “Time for change”.

Dr. Strickler asked me to extend a note of appreciation to Patty for her generous Donation to the Institute of Spiritual Climate and he would also like to extend a warm thank-you for My Favorite Ezines for counting our Newsletter in their Directory of listings and the beautiful summary they included.

IN THIS EDITION:

Dr. Strickler blasts open some creaky old doors, shedding light on the subject of Occult Blinds and the insidious damage that can be produced by the misuse and misrepresentation of spiritual principles and laws in his article: “IT’S A MATTER OF KNOWELDGE, NOT PERCEPTION”.

Adam Crosthwaite explores the confusion of Polarity in his articled entitled: “ESCAPING THE REALM OF UNIPOLAR EXISTENCE”.

Wendy Ford presents her views and opinions on the release of the secrets contained within the Law of Attraction: “TRUTH: PRINCIPLE OF POLARITY. FICTION: LAW OF ATTRACTION”.

Christine Ford expresses her frustration with the changing of words and meanings of interpretation in her article: “THE 1st CORINTHIANS MYSTERY”.

 

The Staff of Spiritual Climate would like to welcome you to the wonders of Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness available to all who seek.

Welcome to the APRIL 2007 EDITION of  the SPIRITUAL CLIMATE NEWSLETTER
