When we constructively praise and creatively bless, life abounds with love, peace, and joy. ~ Ernest Holmes, Science of Mind, p. 434
We have been reviewing the five basic steps of spiritual mind treatment and relating them to how we may connect more deeply and authentically with others in our world. This final Sunday in August focuses on freely turning over our newly-created mental equivalent, or spiritual prototype, to the perfectly wonderful and reliable Law of Mind. As we bless this precious seed thought to its highest expression and release it with confidence to the responsive, creative activity of this Law, we may rest in the sweet awareness that we have done our part and leave the rest to Creative Intelligence.
As we also bless the work we are doing to connect meaningfully with others, we can trust the Universe to continue deepening and expanding our appreciation, compassion, and respect for one another. Bless and praise every person who has ever entered your life, as well as those who have left, express gratitude for each one in your world right now, and celebrate those on their way to you. As we release all previous-held, unconscious attitudes and beliefs and opinions of “the other,” we become free to engage in truly authentic communion with people both like us and unlike us, without having to “unlike” anybody!
Let’s wrap up these five weeks of loving exploration of true Community with the clear understanding that we not only have our important part to do, but that we are willingly joining with other beloveds to create that “World That Works for All.”
How I would love to have you participate with me in the eight-week course, “Treat Yourself to Life” on Tuesday nights, beginning one week from tonight, for a life-changing class on Raymond Charles Barker’s book by the same name. This is an accredited class with Centers for Spiritual Living and a sweet opportunity to bring more love, prosperity, health, and creativity into your life. Simply register with Linda O’Neill at firstname.lastname@example.org and she will e-mail you the class materials, as well as the Zoom link. Let her know if you have or need the book.
We delight in having you join us on our live streaming Sunday Celebrations each week on You Tube and Facebook, both accessed through our website, www.cslphilly.org. Our theme for August has been: “Walking Each Other Home in Five Steps,” and this Sunday’s final topic for the month is, “Blessing and Releasing.”
Our Practitioners are ready to support you with new opportunities or challenging conditions. You will also find information on current classes and other activities, as well as archived Sunday Celebrations and Love Notes from Rev. Mike and me. Thank you for keeping your Beloved Community strong with your prayers and financial support.
With great love and respect,
