The Truth Shall Set You Free…
“Know thyself” (Pythia, the Oracle of Delphi)… and to thy own self be true (Hamlet, William Shakespeare).”
Keys of Life
Truth – Innate, inherent being; natural gifts and abilities
Purpose (Truth) – Intentional expression of truth in altruist contribution(s) to society and the planet
Joy (Truth & Purpose) – Enjoying the cultivation of truth and purpose; beauty, creativity, and prosperity of life
Liberation (Truth, Purpose, Joy) – Freedom to joyfully weave and express a new narrative from truth-purpose with prosperity
There is much happening in the world at this moment. It is hard to know what to believe and what to not believe. The constant influx of information and news/fake news can be overwhelming. We try to regroup with down time; limiting how much we are exposed to and resting from the influx. However, people are still feeling overwhelmed from the uncertainty with the pandemic, unemployment/failing businesses, fires and natural disasters, systemic racism, and the societal impact of politics. Truth and clarity have become more challenging.
Regularly going within to connect and anchor is necessary to sustain, root, and ground us. Our dharma/truth is a door that helps us access clarity and discernment/multiple ways of knowing that cuts through and uncovers false information and appearances. Dharma/truth is a cultivated inner relationship that provides clarity of who we really are beyond what we were told to believe. We can clearly see the projections (falsehoods/illusion) of others that oppress, constrict, and limit us.
This awareness, insight, and clarity also allow us to see falsehoods that show up in society. Truth is beyond the duality/dichotomy of this or that; limitation based on what we or others can currently perceive. Truth exists regardless of whether someone can perceive it; such as the evolving sciences. Like Einstein and other visionaries, they often went within to make major discoveries that have changed how we understand the world.
Personal – Inner being, mind-body-soul, heart-spirit
Community – Family, all sentient beings
Environment – Nature, the Earth
Living from Truth
Deepening personal relationship and inner communion contributes to renewed relationship with loved ones, our community, and the Earth/environment. Accessing and living our truth-purpose supports restoration, development, creativity, and prosperity improving health, wellbeing, and quality of life. Clarity is provided for uncovering underlying issues that contribute to feeling “stuck”, being overwhelmed with problems, challenges with health concerns, and maintaining life balance.
Cultivating inner relationship, operating from our inner locus and receiving discernment allow us to access information and resources beyond perception. So, the saying “when one door closes another one opens”; creation is ongoing and infinite not just door #1 or door #2, the only options we can see at this moment. In a time of overwhelm, uncertainty, and unrest; anchoring within can help us find calming clarity and unexpected resources in the tumultuous eye of the storm.

Intentional Healing Community
The NSC’s Healing Center includes building the Living Sanctuary Healing Community that includes a community land trust for land conservancy and preservation as well as resources to help reduce healthy housing/food insecurity and economic disparity. The establishment of this BIPOC-supportive, green-sustainable/zero carbon/regenerative, intentional community is assisted by collaborative partnerships. Our Leadership certificate program also will provide students with an opportunity to contribute to the intentional community’s development.
