“Love And Appreciate Your Life”
(From the archives of 2017)
Yesterday was a real challenge for those of us who attended the 10:30 Service only to find, rather than an inspirational lesson, our Center flooded. Apparently water pressure was too high. It found a weak spot in the pipes and voila! kitchen, sound room and Rev. Dotty’s office received the brunt of the break.
How opportune to read in the September issue of The Science of Mind magazine the clarifying article by Stef Swink, RScP, entitled “Truly Love, and Guns Will Wilt”. In it she writes not of ruptured pipes but other calamities we often encounter. “Many spiritually inclined people attempt to “rise above” the difficulty and darkness in the world and their own lives, avoiding being present to the human experience. This is known as a spiritual bypass. It does not work.
“Your choice to disconnect from the pain of your human family only adds fuel to the problem which is, at its root, a belief in separation from God and each other.
“Nothing lifts the vibration on this planet more effectively than brave souls choosing to love and appreciate their lives. You can do this even when feeling pain and heartbreak. You don’t need to marinate in it, but don’t ignore it. Choose thoughts, words and actions based on the truth of Oneness. A compelling way to do this is to ask, ‘How can I be a blessing right now?”
I invite you to give this deep thought, and in the meantime live.
Knowing that Divine Spirit is in all people, there is joyous cooperation with others. I help and am helped.
SUNDAY SPIRITUAL GATHERING: September 25 at 10:30am. Rev Andy Torkelson. The title of his message is “Enter the Story”.
