Hello my Spiritual Friends, I have a son who lives in Albuq. His family has a special need for finding a reliable caretaker for his wife who has MS. I was wondering if you have an area to post this desire in your Center or website.
To phone Stefan Watson at # 505-553-6582 to check out the details. If this is a possibility I would appreciate it.
Love and Light,
Gene Watson
" I follow no Jesus, Mohammed, or Buddha but when I consider the idea that the Mystery which I call the Tao somehow brought into being what I call the universe; which managed to evolve what I call consciousness, is what I call amazing! To be amazed each day is quite enough religion to fill me with awe and reverence. To see it all with gratitude and wonder is quite enough prayer to move mountains. To walk in beauty is quite enough worship to satisfy the most demanding of deities."- William Martin
"What if our religion was each other. If our practice was our life. If prayer, our words. What if the temple was the Earth. If forests were our church. If holy water--the rivers, lakes, and ocean. What if meditation was our relationships. If the teacher was life. If wisdom was self-knowledge. If love was the center of our being." ~ Ganga White

Harmony at Work
by Marylyn Kirk, RScP

I Am One with the Infinite Spirit, one Power, one Presence – the Infinite Spirit of Goodness that is everywhere and is in everything. I am divinely connected with all of life.

I know that Divine Harmony follows me everywhere, especially at my place of work.

I am surrounded with rational, peaceful and thoughtful people who desire the highest and best Good from every situation and from every person they encounter. Throughout my day, I express perfect love, perfect peace, perfect harmony and perfect joy. These qualities of Spirit are reflected back to me in every person I interact with.

My colleagues are content, engaged, and experienced, and we work together harmoniously and efficiently. Our working relationships are peaceful and balanced. I am grateful and know that what needs to be said, is said in such a way that my words and actions are understood. I claim that perfect peace and harmony is the outcome.

I embrace the Truth that Spirit is all, and know that in every interaction, each situation at work and everywhere else the Infinite Spirit of Good resides. I am grateful for the ease and grace displayed when there is conflict at work and claim a swift resolution to any disagreements!

With so much gratitude for this Truth, I release and let go, knowing that any conflict or discord is already resolved for Good and that the positive results of any and all interactions are already complete in the mind of God. For this I am grateful.

And so it is.

Life is an Adventure
by Julia Washington, RScP

Yes, Life is an adventure, remarkable and exciting, with all the ups and downs.

When your world is running off the tracks.

(SMILE) knowing God is everywhere present. We can all find Grace in the giving of Sprit, this is something we recognize, with acceptance of Sprit as the Good in our lives.

With this acceptance, we bring forth Harmony in our world, and affairs, moving in God’s mighty rhythm of life.

With this comes healing and putting our world back on the tracks, God stands in us, with us and we are made whole.

So just (SMILE) and let Go.

I release these words into the Law and know it is done.

And So It is.

HOLY, HOLY, HOLY,

Inner Presence, Great and Mighty,

Inner Light that shines divinely,

Inner Life that lives completely,

Inner Joy that (smiles) serenely,

Inner Peace that flows so deeply,

Inner Calm, untroubled, happy,

Inner Love, that gives so freely,

Inner Truth, that never fails me,

Inner Power that holds securely,

Inner Eye, that sees so clearly,

Inner Ear, that hears Him always,

Inner Voice, that speaks supremely,

Inner Good, that binds me to Thee,

HOLY, HOLY, HOLY— Lord, God within me.

I Open Myself up to the Challenge
by Carmella Herrera, RScP

As I began to call upon the one Universal Being, I feel the Creative Power as a source of energy. As I surrender to this Source Energy, I let go of what I believed about the past, and what I maybe had even hoped for. Knowing that the past is no longer, I can change the meaning of past events that no longer serve me. I begin by bringing forth meaning into my life, as I allowed God to guide me. Meaning is what I gain as I experience receiving. I know, that as I accept, I receive, and as I let go and allow, I let God.

God is the Life Force that feeds me. I acknowledge the God qualities in me. I know that God is the Creative Power that allows me to choose to be in personal communion with God. As I open up my heart, I open myself up to possibility, clarity and certainty.

As I take time to actively bring to my mind a conscious intention to call upon God’s intuition to guide me, I realize that I may bring forth a difference in my life that I was not expecting or had not even thought possible. I allow myself to accept all that may unfold, knowing that it is Divinely led.

I now take time to bring Spirit awareness into a higher vibration of Self-Love. I give thanks in advance for the knowing that now is the time. I embrace each moment as I accept self-love as a desire, standing fully in my integrity, and I allow myself to accept the emerging order that will unfold, knowing that it is a process.

I release and allow the power of my word to work, with full acceptance. I know all is well in my life, and it is done, as I believe.

And so it is.

When the Road Gets Rocky

We all experience rocky roads at some point in our lives. It is part of life. Our choice is to bemoan the rocks or to use them as stepping stones to reach higher. Join Rev. Karen as she discusses using the rocks as stepping stones to reach higher.

Treatment for Faith, Clarity and Peace During Times of Trouble
by Rev. Karen Linsley, M.A., Interim Minister

Treatment for faith, clarity and peace during times of trouble:

I know the presence and power of that Force that some call God. I know this Power. I recognize this Presence. I feel this Energy.

I feel It moving through me, I feel It filling me with Its sense of MORE! Reaching ever higher and higher in consciousness. I feel It giving me power and presence and energy. I feel the Force of this thing.

And so I speak my word now for that faith OF god, not in god. I speak my word now for a knowingness that because I am a part of God and It is a part of me, I live and breathe and move in the consciousness of faith, 24/7. I speak my word that from that consciousness of faith I allow with peace, and from that I experience clarity and know my next right steps. And I know these steps with passion and conviction, moving ever forward and reaching ever higher to an even better way of living than I ever imagined.

I release this word into the Law, knowing that Law has taken my words and said YES!

It is done. And so it is!

Valuing Intuition
by Lovater Jones, RScP

“Intuition is God in man [sic], revealing to him the Realities of Being.” – Ernest S. Holmes

God’s way of speaking to us and guiding us is done through us. The Science of Mind Text says that Spirit cannot work for us in any other way, except through us! However, It does so ONLY when we recognize It for who and what it is, the VOICE OF GOD! We must believe what It says It is…our Guidance, Divine Right Action, the Source of our supply, our Health, and any other desires we might have. It is that which goes before each of us to make “all of the crooked places straight.” Intuition, the voice of God, is that which is directing our pathways so that we will know which way to go. All that is required of us is to Listen, Trust, Believe and Follow! Spirit is ALWAYS willing to lead us to our greater Good, we, however, must be open and receptive to this sacred guidance.

This intuition may come as a feeling, a passage in a book, an answer to a long-held question, a talk by your minister, or even lyrics in a beloved song; it is our place to recognize what we hear as guidance; as the answer to our question.

Our Text (Science of Mind) says that “just as instinct guides animals, so would intuition guide us, if we would allow it to operate through us.”

“The Universe is impersonal. It gives alike to all……..Its nature is to impart, ours to receive.” – The Science of Mind, page 41

Treatment for the Courage to Be
by Marilyn O’Leary, RScP

God is all there is. God is the Beginning that has no beginning, the End that has no ending. God is omnipotent, omniscient, omnipresent. God is Radiant Health, Perfect Substance and Support, Creativity, Love and Compassion, Peace, Delighted Expression, Protection and Safety. God is Courage.

I am One with God. What God is, I AM. The qualities of God express through me as me. What I Am I bring to the Universe as I live my life consciously and with intention. Because what I Am is an expression of God, I have the courage to express myself fully. I express myself as radiant health, for that is all I see. I express myself as abundant substance and support, and I have all that I need and want. I express myself creatively through writing, singing, playing music and all other forms of creative expression. I am love and compassion, as I greet each person I meet through the day with the eyes of love. I am peace. I know the peace of God is deep within me and accessible at all times. I bring peace to the world. I know I am divinely guided with God’s safety and protection. What I am I bring to the world. It is what I see in the world.

This is true for me, and it is also true for those who read and accept these words. Each person has the courage to fully express their god-selves. There is no fear in being their true selves, because they know they are divinely guided. I affirm that from this day forward, they express themselves fully as their own unique being.

I give thanks for all who hear and heed these words. I give thanks for the Law of the Universe that takes my words and brings them back fulfilled. I give thanks for this teaching, that helps me remember who I am.

I release my word to the Law, know it cannot come back void, but it comes back fulfilled.

And so it is.
