New PSA: Unauthorized Hodgepodge Flyers
Hello, It has been brought to our attention that an individual (or several individuals) who are not Shadow Light Monastery (SLM) Council Leadership, members, or volunteers is randomly printing a hodgepodge of photos from our SLM website, photos of Lady Donna, council member business cards, our SLM Facebook Page and our Permeating Light Project Facebook Page. These individuals (who are possibly struggling with mental health issues), are hanging the printed material in flyer format, adding their own typo text, and placing them in various public areas within Big Lake, Houston, Wasilla and Anchorage. We would like the general public and local businesses to to know that We Are Not Authorizing these individuals to do this on our behalf.
While we are accepting volunteers to help hand out specifically our Permeating Light Flyers, with instructions on handing out our Permeating Light Flyers, We Are Not Authorizing anyone to randomly print out our internet information and hang it indiscriminately around town. All of our marketing is made in house by a professional and the material that is being distributed by these individual(s) in public appears to be arranged by someone who is a novice/inexperienced at marketing techniques and possibly suffering from mental health issues. If you see the individual(s) hanging up any of our printed materials other than our Permeating Light Project Flyers, Please Do Not Approach the individual(s) and instead report the individual to the business's management along with photos of who the individual is so they may hopefully receive the help they need. Please feel free to contact us with any questions or photos of the individual through our contact page. If you would like to know more about us here at Shadow Light Monastery, please view our Governing Laws. Thank you!
Membership to Shadow Light Monastery is by invitation only. This is a place of sacred sanctuary, safety, and spirit-lead Divine learning for a mosaic of faiths such as those of the Line of Abraham faith (Christian, Islam, Judaism), Divine Universal Almighty Creator faith (Baha'i Faith, Lemniscate), Earth/Folk Spirituality faith (Neopaganism), Eastern Religion faith (Buddhism, Cao Dai) & Man Based faith (Government, Non-Religion). Religion, Spirituality and the Church is the avenue in which Belief and Faith is addressed. Belief and Faiths, regardless of birthright, tradition or choice, is the inherent right of every sentient individual.
While there are other religions and beliefs that hold an animosity toward different faiths, we choose to not hold any animosity toward others. We choose to believe in the Love, Light, Truth, Life, Valor, Justice, Honor, and Consequences of Choice, placing the Divine Creator at the very beginning and end. In addition, we do not affiliate ourselves with any "evil" or "cultish" ignorant & erroneous Incarnation placed by another's belief system that lacks true understanding of our principal beliefs and tradition. In this way, we do not seek power at the expense of the suffering or duress of others.
Membership invitations are sent to those individuals who Divine Council has brought to the attention of 1st Council. Each member invitation is written by 1st Council based upon the inspiration of Divine Spirit. There are celebrations and activities that are available to the public, where membership is not necessary. However, there are certain aspects of the Monastery that are reserved for Monastery Members only. If you are drawn to join the Council of Members, please contact us and we will correspond with you regarding what you are seeking.
Permeating Light Message
I would like to share with you what I have learned in life. I have learned to refuse to Live my life in Fear of what others may maliciously lie about me. Be cautious of those individuals who are quick to judge and attack while slow to learn and understand. Be Watchful of such people. I have learned that when you finally Choose to Walk in the Light, those who walk in darkness will attack you. They will try to destroy your Light with lies, false accusations, slander & call you crazy. They will use the worlds system and will use the most innocent among us to try to destroy you. I have also learned to Stay Strong, committed to the Light & Stand Your Ground! Withstand all their lies and deceptive games, all the while, you walk BELIEVING in Divine Justice. Just as the darkness is committed to their lies, you stay committed to the Truth, Love, Valor, Rectitude, Justice, Righteous Courage, Veracity, Benevolence & Light! Let them all witness something being born within you they have never seen before and Let Your Light Shine! Written by Lady Donna
It appears Time to Address the fact that we are a Religious organization.
Yes, we are going to upset people because we do not condemn a persons right to choose their Faith. Just because someone has Faith, regardless of whatever it is by birth or tradition, does not make them Crazy or Irrelevant nor does it mean that because they have faith, they must vacate their civic responsibilities.
Your choice of Faith is Your Business, not Ours, and We support your Right to Choose without feeling mocked, marginalized or condemned. We are not a Government therefore, the separation of Church and State does not apply to us. We are Not 501c3 and never claimed to be per our ratified constitution. So the 501c3 laws of the IRS do not apply to us.
We are already ruffling feathers with our Permeating Light Project. Regardless, we are going to proceed. The bricks thrown at us in condemnation will be the material we use to Pave the Way. Thank you!
