The Rodan Foundation’s Publication for The Love Awakening

May 2021

The Love Awakening is an extension of The Rodan Foundation, a spiritual center founded in 1981 by Rev. Clarke Carraway. Through the Metaphysical Church of Enlightenment and ongoing activities, The Rodan Foundation provides uncompromising revelation to fuel awakening beings with love, healing and heart awareness. The Love Awakening offers self-empowerment tools and courses designed to help you awaken and reclaim your personal power through living positive life frequencies. We actively participate in living the power of love by extending volunteer efforts to support the people and environment in our local and greater community.   

 Our mission is to assist humanity in awakening to the power of love AND lovingly assist humanity in awakening.  Our intention is to help others help themselves awaken to who they truly are and to choose to use their powers for the greater good. Our vision is the collective awakening of humanity, bringing forth harmony and unity for all. Join us as we learn and grow in the ways of living love and loving life!   

If You Want Others to Be Happy, Practice Compassion By Brian Lee

"If you want others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want to be happy, practice compassion." – Dalai Lama

The time has come when we cannot just rely on others to make the world a better place – each one of us has to do our bit.

It is therefore time for people to be more and more aware about their Personal Social Responsibility (PSR).

PSR is all about doing to others what you would like others do to you. It is about recognizing how your behaviour affects others, and holding yourself accountable for your actions. For example, contrast someone being well mannered and kind, with someone being rude.

And this brings me nicely to the theme of this post – being kind to others.

Kindness is contagious – and as part of Personal Socially Responsibility you might want to consider carrying out random acts of kindness on a daily basis.

It is truly a win/win/win situation. The person you are being kind to benefits through your help. You feel good for having helped someone. And the world is a better place through your kindness.

Never underestimate the impact of a single act of kindness. I still remember, after many years, the time someone stopped and helped me after my car had broken down down. Since then, I have stopped on the road myself and helped stranded motorists a number of times. All because of that single act of kindness by a stranger.

Also, it is important to carry out your acts of kindness without expecting anything in return. It truly is the gift that keeps on giving.

The "I Love Me" MeditationTM

The "I Love Me" Meditation is a simple and profound heart-centered practice of generating your personal frequency of love.  It will teach you how to activate your natural capacity to generate and experience love through conscious awareness and conscious choice.  This practice helps us to awaken.  It encourages personal empowerment, greater self-esteem and self-discovery as we learn practical means of replacing fear and negative frequency with the most powerful force in the universe: Love!

A Loving Companion 

"Until one has loved an animal a part of one's soul remains unawakened." ~Anatole France  

Each month, The Love Awakening highlights precious animals in need of nurturing, care, and a forever  loving home. “Hi! I'm Amina. I'm a 5 month old, spayed female, shepherd mix. I'm currently being treated for some skin issues that my new family will have to continue. I can be a sweet puppy, but I'm currently feeling pretty shy and a little bit scared. Due to my shy nature, small children would be too much for me, so I would do best in a home with older kiddos. I get along with my sisters but I'm still learning to be around other dogs. I'd do best with a social, friendly dog. I am looking for a family that has had shy dogs before and is ready to take me to training classes. Please submit your Adoption Profile Form to adoptinquire@peninsulahumanesociety.org and an adoption counselor will call you to conduct a phone interview.  Amina's ID# = A893884. Call (650) 340-0722 or visit me at Peninsula Humane Society!
