Let us realize and work with this sound knowledge and perfect faith: That as high as we shall make our mark in Mind and Spirit, so high shall be Its outward manifestation in our material world.
~ Ernest Holmes, Science of Mind, p. 39
We love beginning our New Year with a review of the basic principles of Science of Mind, choosing to build a strong base for what we are ready to create in the months to come. We completed 2021 mindfully, peacefully, and gratefully, with the World Peace Meditation the morning of Dec. 31st, and the Burning Bowl Ceremony January 2nd. Releasing the past year with care and appreciation, we opened the way for wonderful, new beginnings.
Centers for Spiritual Living’s theme for 2022 is, “Living Everyday Wonder,” a fitting phrase for us to remain awake to the beauty of our world and the perfect possibilities Spirit has for us all. GPCSL’s theme for the month of January is, “Beautiful Basics.” This past Sunday, we began the review of the first four chapters in Science of Mind, this one entitled, “The Thing Itself,” and we recalled the immense and eternal Presence of the Divine and Its Powerful, Creative Intelligence that is alive within the Universe, as well as within each one of us. You may wish to read ahead in the “textbook” this week, as our focus will be on the second introductory chapter, “The Way It Works.” My topic will be, “You Can Count on It.”
As more of us are attending in person at our 10:30 A.M. Sunday morning Celebrations, we continue following CDC recommendations for safety and wellbeing, which includes wearing masks indoors and staying socially distanced. If you arrive early, you may join the Practitioner of the Day in a brief meditation at 10:00 A.M. If you choose to attend virtually, simply go to our website www.cslphilly.org and select either Facebook or YouTube to view the Celebration or click on the orange Watch Live button. You may also see other archived Sunday mornings or watch “Love Notes” Rev. Mike and I record Monday through Friday.
Our Practitioners and Intern are always glad to hear from you and to work with you in spiritual mind treatment (affirmative prayer) for any condition you are ready heal or change you are ready to make in your consciousness and in your world. Just go to the Practitioner Page on our website, and you will be guided to the one you feel ready to call, as you move into greater possibilities this year.
Yes, there are challenges ahead for all of us; yet, there is a Power for Good in the Universe, greater than we are, and we are using It! Let’s enjoy working together to bring a new reality into existence, for ourselves, our loved ones, our Beloved Community, and the world itself.
With great love and respect,
