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?

How Much Are You Worth to You? – February 21, 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 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.

Praise Yourself, Raise Yourself – February 14, 2020

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 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.

Forgiveness Begins with You – February 7, 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.

The February 7, 2021 topic is Forgiveness Begins with You. Our aspiration today is that we open our hearts wide enough to forgive the countless years we have inflicted negative self-talk, blame, shame, and undeserved self-sabotage upon ourselves. We will explore the power, grace, and freedom found in forgiveness, beginning with self-forgiveness and then extending it to others.

Difficult People: Are They Blessings or Blockages? – January 31, 2021

My heart thanks each one of you for the loving support you so generously give both to me and to our online community, and I wish each of you and your dear ones the deepest blessings in the New Year.

As we enter the portal of 2021, let us walk together confidently, with absolute trust in Spirit, in ourselves, in one another. May our inherent wisdom and compassion direct our every step toward healing and peace in our individual and collective heart. Toward fulfilling this aspiration, we will focus on the universal principles as taught by Ernest Holmes in his classic book, The Science of Mind, which are so appropriate for our January theme, “Timeless Practices for Our Times.”

The January 31, 2021 topic is Difficult People: Are They Blessings or Blockages? As you read these words, most likely there are some “difficult people” who are a source of irritation in your life. The foremost question to ask is, “What within me is being irritated?” Is it ego, as in your image of yourself? Attachment to cherished beliefs, opinions? The second most important question is: “How may I apply spiritual principle to skillfully work with this challenge?”

What It Does – January 17, 2021

My heart thanks each one of you for the loving support you so generously give both to me and to our online community, and I wish each of you and your dear ones the deepest blessings in the New Year.

The words “what It does” point to our innate capacity to expand our realization of how our moment-by-moment thoughts, choices, and actions throughout any given day activate our ability to energetically co-create with Spirit that which manifests in our inner and outer lives. Through acceptance of this gift, we enable ourselves to consciously participate in this sacred collaboration.

The Way It Works – January 10, 2021

My heart thanks each one of you for the loving support you so generously give both to me and to our online community, and I wish each of you and your dear ones the deepest blessings in the New Year.

As we enter the portal of 2021, let us walk together confidently, with absolute trust in Spirit, in ourselves, in one another.

The January 10, 2021 topic is The Way It Works. Does Spirit have a job description to which we can hold It accountable? The truth is, Spirit does not change up on us, never goes against its Universal Laws governing the universe. So perhaps it is we who must hold ourselves accountable, to deepen our commitment to living by that which Dr. Holmes describes as Love and Law.

Can we turn to it for guidance in the everyday details of our lives, and if so, how? This Sunday we will explore how the Science of Mind principles respond to this natural seeking of the soul.

Embracing and Sharing Your Gifts – December 27, 2020

As we enter the holiday season of Christmas, Chanukah, and Kwanzaa, the Board of Directors and Practitioners join me in wishing you and your loved ones a sweet and safe celebration. We also want you to know how much your presence at our Zoom classes inspires us as we walk hand in hand, heart to heart with you during these challenging times. Considering that this can also include financial challenges, your spirit of generosity is deeply appreciated. Let’s stay close in Spirit as we share this month’s theme, “Embracing the Spirit of Celebration.”

The December 27, 2020 topic is Embracing and Sharing Your Gifts. It’s no wonder that the story of the little drummer boy has become a timeless Christmas carol, for just like him, we have taken a human birth to share our gifts on the planet. As these words in the carol reminds us, “Then He smiled at me…” And so it is that Spirit unconditionally smiles upon each one of us throughout all time and eternity.
