Will the True Giver Please Step Forward? – February 28, 2021

How often we hear the words of Jesus to “Love thy neighbor as thyself.” I italicize Jesus’s use of “thyself” because it clearly indicates, even assumes, that we do, indeed, love ourselves. Why is it, then, that most of us must work to cultivate self-love, self-forgiveness, self-compassion?

Truth be told, it’s an ever-evolving process to accept how deeply we are cherished by Spirit, to bow in humble acknowledgment that it has chosen to express its formlessness through us in form. And that is why throughout February our theme will be, “The Self-love Experiment.” Together, we will enter the laboratory of our own consciousness and allow grace to take us to higher ground.

The February 28, 2021 topic is Will the True Giver Please Step Forward? One of Ernest Holmes’s frequent statements is about how no one can give to us but ourselves and no one can take anything away from us but ourselves. Now what he meant by this is that no one can accept our good on our behalf and no one can steal it but us. Doesn’t it make sense, then, to open our awareness and claim our empowerment of self-givingness?

The February 21, 2021 topic is How Much Are You Worth to You? The teachings of Science of Mind emphasize the value of self-confidence. Not in the typical psychological sense, but in the spiritual sense that we are of infinite worth because our life is a sacred gift of Spirit. Through Spiritual Mind Treatment, our individual stock goes up in value as we affirm, accept, and give thanks that we are a perfect idea in the mind of God.

The February 14, 2021 topic is Praise Yourself, Raise Yourself. Let us be clear that appreciating ourselves is not about ego driven self-aggrandizement or thinking that we are superior to others. The praise I refer to raises us to a state of conscious realization that we deserve our own self-respect and self-appreciation founded in the acceptance that we live each moment of our lives with the full support of the Universe.

We will explore the power, grace, and freedom found in forgiveness, beginning with self-forgiveness and then extending it to others.
