The hero is one who kindles a great light in the world, who sets up blazing torches in the dark streets of life for men to see by.
Meet our real life heroes!

💫Mercury makes its ingress into Capricorn today where it will sweep over both Saturn and Pluto in the coming weeks.
“The world is a kosmos;
to pray for change in its arrangement is to pray for its destruction.”
Whether this speedy planet moves in Chronos or Kairos is up to you, time-keeper.

"And like a tree are we, with the mighty trunk of intellect, the spreading branches of imagination, the fibrous roots of the lower instincts, that bind us to the earth. But the moral life is the fruit we bear; in it our true nature is revealed; in it we see the purpose of our being fulfilled. So when we speak of a return to nature, it is this higher nature to which we refer, whose origin we know not, but whose workings we feel, and know them by the token of the sweet satisfaction they afford us to be the crown and glory of our lives. The old Ideal emphasizes the Eternal that is without us; the new the Eternal that is within ourselves. The old styles us exiles from the kingdom of truth; the new summons us to be the banner-bearers of truth; the old points to a heaven beyond the Earth, the new tells us that our Earth too is a part of the heaven, a light-world, among endless worlds of light."

"BE IT OURS to hold high the moral ideal, whether we clothe it with personality or not."
"BE IT OURS to act divine things, no matter how we regard divine mysteries." "BE IT OURS to help in lifting up the fallen, to lend free utterance to the complaints of the oppressed, to brand the social iniquities of our time, to give our hearts warmth and the labor of our hands to the cause of their redress, and to push on with whatever power we may, the progress of our people toward those high and holy goals of which the dreamers dream and the prophets prophesy." - Felix Adler, "Creed and Deed", 1880

We are always looking for new ways to get involved in the communities where we work, and we especially love hyperlocal causes! In fact, the Community Involvement Committee at our Clinton Campus will be selling lunches on site one day per month to benefit a different local non-profit every month!
For the most recent lunch sale, proceeds went to The Children’s Discovery Center. Specifically, the $125 raised will help sponsor Felix Adler Days, a fun annual children’s event named after a famous local clown.
Great work, guys! We can’t wait to see what you have planned for next month!

“For spirituality is not indissolubly associated with any one type of religion or philosophy; it is a quality of soul manifesting itself in a variety of activities and beliefs.” Excerpt From: Adler, Felix. “The Essentials of Spirituality.” #felixadler #spirituality
I have already posted a photo of my Michael Hoppin painting of Felix Adler back when I first purchased it from someone's garage a little over a year ago but now that it's officially on the wall, I wanted to take a better photo of it to showcase just how amazing it really is.
"Theories of what is true have their day. They come and go, leave their deposit in the common stock of knowledge, and are supplanted by other more convincing theories."
— Felix Adler (1851-1933) The Religion of Duty, chapter 10 (1905)
