As is our tradition at Centers for Spiritual Living, we take the

by reviewing the material from the Science of Mind 

textbook written by our founder, Ernest Holmes.

MEDITATION starts promptly at 10:30am and SERVICE begins at 11am

Jan 6 - The Thing Itself
Rev. Laura Hallett

We begin the month by discussing the Universal Presence that is the very nature of everything. Ernest described this Universal Presence in this way: “There is a Universal Mind, Spirit, Intelligence that is the origin of everything. It is First Cause. It is God. This Universal Life and Energy finds an outlet in and through all that is energized and through everything that lives. There is One Life back of everything that lives. There is One Energy back of all that is energized. This Energy is in everything. There is One Spirit back of all expression. That is the meaning of that mystical saying: 'In Him we live, and move, and have our being.' (Acts 17:28).”

Jan 13 - The Way It Works
Rev. Laura Hallett 

Next we look at how this Universal Presence works in our lives. Ernest emphasizes here that the only way the Universal Presence shows up is through an outlet. “The flow of creative life is from an invisible center outward. Every person is an inlet and may become an outlet to this river of life. Those who have followed their individual stream back to its original source have found an ocean of life in which they are immersed, a universal Spirit in which they live, move, and have their being.”

Jan 20 - What It Does
Rev. Laura Hallett

In this next part we look at the importance of practice and how we become the most able vessel through which the Universal Presence can show up in our lives. This is all contingent on our belief and how much we practice what we believe. Ernest writes: “You are never limited by the Principle. Limitation is a result of a limited use of this Principle. You can come to but one conclusion: there is something which honors your belief, not in a big way in one place and in a little way in another; rather, it honors your belief as you believe it.”

Jan 27 - How To Use It

Sharon Shores, RScP 

Sharon will be speaking on the final part of this overview of the basic principles of Science of Mind. This week the focus is on how we can take these principles and bring them into our lives in a real and transformative way. Ernest describes the process this way: “In this act of transforming the energy into power for specific action we are uniting an invisible Essence with an invisible Law, which is the way the universe operates. If we identify ourselves with the Source and perform the act, we may know that our word establishes eternal harmony, transforms everything, rearranges everything to our benefit. It is an act of complete surrender of the human to the Divine without the loss of the human. It is an act of complete in-flowing of the Divine into the human without the limitation of the Divine.”
