We often hear, “Its’ just your ego!” as if it is something to be dismissed or ignored. What is it really? Is it all bad? Discover its origin, make up, and the important role your ego plays in your life.
There is a flow of harmony and love everywhere, whether you are aware of it or not, and whether you are consciously moving in it or not. When it seems that you are stuck in gridlock, shift gears, be a channel for the flow of the infinite creative process, and shift into light-speed.
Whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.
Turn over every stone, every hard, fixed, or erroneous through and belief and discover the spiritual gifts hidden. This is our annual Q&A Service. During the service, discern the questions you have about your hard, fixed, and erroneous thoughts. Write them on a card and Rev. John will answer them.
Sunday, 7/1, 10:00 am
With Rev. John Riley and music by Hope Briggs, Russell Norman on piano, and Ron E. Beck on drums.
Infinite wisdom guides all creation. Rather than wasting time and energy resisting the experiences I find myself in, I bless the situation. I work in cooperation with the Universe and look for the underlying purpose in all events.
Sunday Morning Meditation
With Cheryl Branco in the Fireside Room at 9:00-9:30 am
Planting seeds of goodness and acting with the highest intention of my heart, I bring balance to my life. My actions spring from interconnection, kinship, and love.
When the baggage you carry gets too heavy it is time to let go and let God.
Living in our fast-paced world filled with the barrage of news, social media, and the demands of work, family, and even retirement, we may feel off-balance at times. When that happens, it’s time to flip our internal circuit breaker and reground ourselves in Source.
Balance requires practice and consistent realignment with Source. Confusion, doubt, stress, and anxiety are friends to awaken me to another choice in every situation. Centered-balanced being – saner, happier living. The foundation stones for a balanced success are honesty, character, integrity, faith, love, and loyalty.
Oneness is reality. The boundary between ourselves and other people and between ourselves and Nature, is illusion. A blessing is an imparting of spiritual good, and to be a blessing is to be a beacon that shines forward hope, faith, and wisdom. I allow the inner light of Spirit to guide me that I may bring light to those around me.
The “I” that thinks has the capacity to think what it wants to think, and I decide to think positively and creatively. I get the wrinkles out of my mind. I get myself thinking organized and orderly.I make up my mind, then I go out and face the world, secure in knowing that no matter what happens, I can be on top of it.
One with divine mind, all that I wish to manifest in my life comes first from within. Stepping into this awareness, I seek no further and embrace the simplicity of being”It”. I Am that which I seek. Everything I need is within me. … And sometimes wearing an awesome pair of shoes can’t hurt.
The movement of Spirit from within me out into my words and actions is an expression of my spirituality. When I am fully experiencing the reality of my spiritual nature, my life is indeed full – full with the presence of God and full with the expression of the sacred attributes. Expressing my spirituality, I give more in life and receive more from life.
When filled with anxiety or concern, when a conclusion is reached and the next steps seem unclear, I make a choice to let go of the fear and embrace the divine light that shines the way from the inside out. “Casting all your anxiety upon him, because he careth for you” 1 Peter 5:7.
A Heart of Service is Foundational to the Divine Expression. How we show up in the world is our legacy to the world we create. Divine Service is expressed in many ways from a smile to ministering to those around us.
Friendship is a mirror that reflects the grace of God. Each friendship is an opportunity for me to reveal my highest and best qualities. Each friendship is an opportunity to connect with the perfect wholeness of Spirit connecting us and to express love, kindness, and harmony. I bless my friends and I am doubly blessed.
Simon Peter, Thomas called the Twin, Nathanael of Cana in Galilee, the sons of Zebedee, and two others of his disciples were coming together. Simon Peter said to them, “I am going fishing”. They said to him, “We will go with you”.
The eternal light of the Christ in me is ever shining. I awaken to Spirit and find new ways to express my light. I am alive in the newness of life, filled with energy, power, and zeal! I embrace every opportunity to radiate joy today!
