New Ideas Bring New Opportunities

New ideas inspire me and new thoughts bring new opportunities to my world of expression. Each idea is complete with the right and perfect plan for its successful fulfillment. My intention and attention are focused on new ventures and new experiences.

My God given opportunities are abundant and cannot be denied. Every talent, skill and ability is recognized by the one creative mind and is fully and adequately equipped with right action and right release of expression. Everything that has taken place in my past has prepared me for the present. Infinite mind abundantly supplies me with fresh new ideas to motivate and prosper me.

This is a new day, a new time over flowing with new and limitless possibilities and opportunities for my larger expression. I am continuously meeting new and larger experiences that support and empower my God-identity. I am joyously established in successful living.

Today, I am entering a new beginning. I walk through the doorway of opportunity with absolute assurance that divine intelligence is guiding me in everything I think, say and do. I accept this Truth and celebrate the richness of its right and perfect expression now. In gratitude, I let it be so, and so it is!

Happy New Year and Happy New Beginnings!

A CHRISTMAS LETTER FROM ERNEST HOLMES

Christmas is for remembrance. The love manifested through our gifts to each other typifies the offer of Life and the givingness of Spirit to Its creations. The hands of the eternal are outstretched through our hands, and the heart of the Infinite beats in the human breast. But the giver must give of himself, for, “the gift without the giver is bare.”

It is not, then, in lavish gifts that we find true giving, but in the sweet simplicity of remembrance, in the kindly thought, the tolerant mind and the gentle act. Love alone can give love, sympathy alone can sympathize and only goodness can really do or be good.

The one who gives for reward does not give at all; he seeks to bargain; to trade for spiritual gifts; hence, he senses a loss in his own giving and finds no completion through the act. But, he who gives “half his meat” to the hungry feels justified and is warmed by a real sense of comradeship. He has established an actual unity between himself and other offspring of Creation.

Great causes succeed when there is a giving of humanity to humanity. With the check must come the one who wrote it, his interest, his enthusiasm, his love. The check must be a symbol of his desire to impart of himself-then shall it multiply its benefits and do good. Charity is cold-but love is warm. When heart speaks to heart a divine conversation has taken place, a heavenly discourse.

Each of us has something to give. Let each see that he gives of his best. If we are bringing our gifts to the alter of love, nothing less than the best will be acceptable; nothing less than all is enough.

May the real spirit of Christmas-the giving of the self to life, enter and abide in you now and through all times.

Sincerely,

Ernest Holmes

Christmas Celebration: Let the God-Times Roll!! – December 21, 2014

At the Science of Mind Spiritual Center Los Angeles, you will hear relevant messages, by Rev. Pam MacGregor, that you can apply to everyday life. This month’s theme is Join the Cosmic Celebration!

We sometimes complain how materialistic Christmas has become, yet in our hearts no one nor no thing can take the Christ-spirit out of this beautiful, sacred season. That our planet was graced by such a master teacher and way shower as Jesus, a true spiritual carpenter, is a profound, immeasurable blessing. The topic on December 21, 2014 was Christmas Celebration: Let the God-Times Roll!!. How precious to come together as a spiritual family and share the joyous good news that no matter from what humble or challenging beginnings our outer life may have begun, no matter in what we became enmeshed as we walked our path, “believe in the light, that you may become the children of light” is the perfect mantra for our journey. The Light of our spirit never diminishes, never leaves us. Have you noticed how Christmas, Chanukah, Kwanzaa are all celebrations of that Light? Let us rejoice in the unique, individual expression of Light that each one of us shines upon the Beloved Community. Joyous blessings upon us all!

Love and Wisdom

I am one with God, infinite good. There is nothing separating me from
my source creator. I am always connected to Divine greatness. I accept
Its calling to live with an open heart without reservation. I am grateful
for the wisdom to see the perfection back of all appearances and to
know the Truth.

My inherent nature is the essence of love. This love is a healing power that infuses everything and everyone with its sacred warmth and protection. Love governs all actions by its divine embrace and its everlasting arms of harmony. I am confident that God is always acting through me in all I do, say and think. My
heart is filled with gladness and my mind is wise and discerning.

Within me is intelligence greater than anything that can be seen in the material world. The Spirit of love and wisdom surround me, sustain me and guide me into the paths of rightness. Immersed in perfect peace, I meet every situation with divine love and wisdom and the only result is an increase of God’s blessings. With a grateful heart, I give thanks for this perfect demonstration. I let it be so, and so it is!

The Proof Is in the Practice – December 14, 2014

At the Science of Mind Spiritual Center Los Angeles, you will hear relevant messages, by Rev. Pam MacGregor, that you can apply to everyday life. This month’s theme is Join the Cosmic Celebration!

We sometimes complain how materialistic Christmas has become, yet in our hearts no one nor no thing can take the Christ-spirit out of this beautiful, sacred season. That our planet was graced by such a master teacher and way shower as Jesus, a true spiritual carpenter, is a profound, immeasurable blessing. The topic on December 14, 2014 was The Proof Is in the Practice. There is no substitute for spiritual practice. When we look at the lives of Jesus and the Buddha, we see that they practiced their own teachings, that their teachings literally emerged out of their inner spiritual practices. The teachings of Science of Mind are likewise rooted in Dr. Holmes’s study and practice of ancient teachings of East and West. What generosity of heart that these spiritual luminaries shared with us in the universal principles and practices leading to inner awakening. Listening, reading, discussing and appreciating these principles is one thing, but to prove their brilliance and power in your everyday experience can only be known through practice, practice, practice.

Divine Operation

“My mind is a center of Divine operation. The Divine operation is always for expansion and fuller expression, and this means the production of something beyond what has gone before, something entirely new, not included in the past experience, though proceeding out of it by an orderly sequence of growth. Therefore, since the Divine cannot change its inherent nature, it must operate in the same manner with me; consequently, in my own special world, of which I am the center, it will move forward to produce new conditions, always in advance of any that have gone before.”

From the Doré Lectures by Judge Thomas Troward

The Cosmic Call – December 7, 2014

At the Science of Mind Spiritual Center Los Angeles, you will hear relevant messages, by Rev. Pam MacGregor, that you can apply to everyday life. This month’s theme is Join the Cosmic Celebration!

We sometimes complain how materialistic Christmas has become, yet in our hearts no one nor no thing can take the Christ-spirit out of this beautiful, sacred season. That our planet was graced by such a master teacher and way shower as Jesus, a true spiritual carpenter, is a profound, immeasurable blessing. The topic on December 7, 2014 was The Cosmic Call. From deep within the core Self arises the cosmic call to discover and live your soul-purpose. This inner urge simply won’t go away. In fact, it can’t go away, so powerfully is it etched in your spiritual DNA. What Ernest Holmes described as our “inherent inner impulsion” is what twenty-first century science calls neurotheology: the results of what shows up on brain scans of chanting Sikhs, meditating Buddhists, and praying individuals and how it shapes the mind and spirit. In the stillness of your Self, listen deeply; from your heart, respond jubilantly to the universal Reality that connects us to All that there is.

God Vision

I am one with the presence and power of Infinite mind. This truth fortifies and strengthens all of my experiences. I envision each goal successfully achieved with grace and ease.

Everywhere I look it is with God-vision. I see with the eyes of God. My mind is open and free to focus only on
perfection. I stay steadfast on thee.

I delight in the grace and glory of my spiritu-al commitment that always makes the way clear and safe for me. I envision and choose right ideas for me. These ideas manifest consistently as right action and bring forth a greater good just as I had imagined.

I give thanks for this completed demonstration. I joyfully release this to the great law of mind, knowing with invincible faith that it is done, and so it is!

The Unconditional Quality of Forgiveness – November 30, 2014

At the Science of Mind Spiritual Center Los Angeles, you will hear relevant messages, by Rev. Pam MacGregor, that you can apply to everyday life. This month’s theme is Gratitude: An Unconditional Quality of Consciousness.

There is a profound reason why the practice of spiritual mind treatment includes the step of thanksgiving: it reminds us that all that we need to wake up to our true nature and live the life divine has already been given to us by our Creator Source. The topic on November 30, 2014 was The Unconditional Quality of Forgiveness. Have you ever had the experience of withholding forgiveness because you thought it would let the perceived perpetrator off the hook of accountability? Or what about the colloquialism of forgiving but not forgetting? Unconditional forgiveness is not about allowing abusive behavior to repeat itself or about righteous indignation. It is about unburdening ourselves from the bondage of the ego holding an unrelenting grudge, whether it is against ourselves or others. It is about being humbly grateful that “as ye forgive, so are ye forgiven.”
