Theme for the Week of March 21, 2016
Don’t Bring Me Down: The challenges of group consciousness
“We believe in control of conditions through the power of this Mind.” – Ernest Holmes
Have you had just about enough of the 2016 U.S. presidential campaigning yet? Personally, I can’t get enough of it. HUH?
Perhaps you are troubled by the rhetoric from nearly all candidates, misleading ads and a particularly ugly brand of violence witnessed at some rallies. But we have an opportunity – here or abroad – to experience a shift in consciousness never before seen on the planet. That’s exciting! Why?
Because we are witnessing how easily humans can be manipulated. We get to choose whether we will jump in the mud along with the masses. We have the chance to close our ears to challenges to our beliefs, ideologies and candidates, or we can decide to listen to objections with an open mind and heart.
The more adamant we are that we must be right the more we have the chance to step back and ask ourselves why that is so. Our beliefs, our way of life, our faith itself must be able to stand up to the test of fire. If we must shield our beliefs from those different than ours or require everyone to agree with us then we are not nearly as confident as we think we are.
Over the next week we’ll be exploring how we have choice in how we are affected by the consciousness of our family and friends, our spiritual communities, our lovers, our nation and the world. Those concepts will be developed over at the Facebook page for Spirit, Mind and Body Foundation.
In the meantime, ponder the quote above by Science of Mind® founder, Dr. Ernest S. Holmes. We CAN control our conditions through the power of universal Mind. The key to doing that and understanding how it’s done is knowing that it starts with our attitude about conditions around us, not dictating the actions of others. Sound interesting? Come on over for the discussions!
