Awakening to Happiness

 A Universal Tribute Course ~


My life goal is to align my will with Divine Will and to increase the time I function in this state of Higher Knowing. 


To explore the essential nature of the human will - its development, wounding, and strengthening – and to apply this understanding in daily life


            We can use our will either as a source of wisdom and happiness or a source of power over others. 
                    1. To discover the four major ways the will develops – in strength, skill, goodness, and spirituality
                    2. To explore how the will’s wounding at a young age impacts physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual wellbeing throughout life
                    3. To learn psychological and spiritual practices that support healing the will
                    4. To practice ways to develop and strengthen the will

                            MAKING THE DECISION

                            Are you concerned about your failure to make healthy choices in your life?  Do you find you make healthy choices in your life yet don’t continue them after a few days or weeks?  Are you frustrated with your resistance to change?  Would you like to learn new skills more easily?   Do you procrastinate?  Do you have difficulty making decisions?  Does your present life continue to reflect emotional wounds you experienced in early life?  Are you impatient?  Do you get upset and angry when someone imposes their beliefs on you or gives you advice? Are you looking for ways to develop and strengthen your will?  Would you like to experience happiness in your life?

                            Carefully read and consider the Universal Tributes Courses introductory page.  Ask yourself if now is the time to devote yourself to beginning (or deepening) your spiritual journey using the psychological-spiritual tool of the ten Universal Tributes.

                            The four-week course for the Universal Tribute WILL supports you in accessing compassion for yourself and others by observing life experiences nonjudgmentally and through the understanding and practice of Tribute One:  My life goal is to align my will with Divine Will and to increase the time I function in this state of Higher Knowing.
