Seek the Common Good - Oneness
February 2019 Newsletter
What a joy it is to be writing to you this month. We have had an amazing holiday season and have already eagerly leaped into 2019 by going back to the basic principles of the Science of Mind, the philosophy practiced here at Centers for Spiritual Living. We looked at Spirit and how It works in our lives to change conditions and bring about a more harmonious experience for all of us.
Our theme for 2019 is Spirituality in Action based on The 10 Prophetic Justice Principles as developed by Rev. James Forbes. These topics are in alignment with the basic principles of the Science of Mind helping each one of us become a creative force for change in our own unique ways. This is one way that you help create a world that works for everyone and all of creation. The topics for each month are as follows:
We will finish off the year by looking at how our philosophy integrates with the Holy Days of the major faith traditions.
Each topic also has a book of the month to support our exploration of it. They are listed below.
In February our topic of Oneness will have us exploring our shared humanity, interdependence and what is best for the common good of all of creation. In his book that we’re using in February, the Dalai Lama writes:
The first principle is the recognition of our shared humanity and our shared aspiration to happiness and the avoidance of suffering; the second is the understanding of interdependence as a key feature of human reality, including our biological reality as social animals. From these two principles we can learn to appreciate the inextricable connection between our own well-being and that of others, and we can develop a genuine concern for others’ welfare.
We have such a fabulous year ahead of us and I’m so excited to have your company as we journey through it together.
Peace and richest blessings,
