Would You Like to Prosper in Life?

Theme for the Week of April 25:
Kinship With All Life
 

Affirmation:  We see a world in which kinship with all life prospers.

 Would You Like to Prosper in Life?

Do you believe we still live in a “dog-eat-dog” world? When media feeding frenzies highlight what’s wrong on our planet it could leave us to agree. And, many businesses are still operating with the model that there’s only room for one at the top.

This week in our daily discussions over at the Facebook® page for Spirit, Mind and Body Foundation we’ll be looking again at our unity with all life, but also how we can participate in the prosperity of all concerned.

How prospering looks for each of us is an individual determination. Just as prosperity is not all about money, prospering is not necessarily the ideal set out for us in the media through advertising and marketing. For some of us, prospering in life can be as simple as being content with what we have.

This is not meant to infer that we should become complacent in life. Contentment and complacency are two different things – yet another topic we’ll look at this week! What we focus on increases; this is a basic universal law. Therefore, if we are constantly complaining about our body image, our relationships, our job or our bank account, what do you think is increasing? All the things we don’t want!

Join me this week in a further examination of the unity of all life, the kinship we hold with creatures like us and those dissimilar, how we can prosper through contentment and how we can actively partner in a prospering life for all.

Yes, it’s going to be quite a week!

Say WHAT?!?

Theme for the Week of April 18:
Consciousness Creates Reality

“We believe that the manifest universe is the body of God.”
– Ernest Holmes

Say WHAT?!?

Are you enjoying the themes so far this year? Please let me know what you think! While I’m committed to joining other spiritual communities in this quest of #TheGlobalVision - #AWorldThatWorksForEveryone, I want to make sure that we are discussing and thinking about how these themes and ideas fit into our own lives, how we can live happier, more productive lives because of them. Let me know what you want to hear more of, if you’re not getting what you want from this blog!

Take this week, for instance. Do you still see God as the “Old Man in the Sky?” It’s not as uncommon as you think. Plenty of people have been raised to see God as far-off, distant, judgmental and to-be-feared so as not to displease Him. And, oh yes, God is definitely a “Him.”

Not so much … really! First of all the Judiac-Christian Bible, if that is your holy book of reference, must depict God as male due to the patriarchal nature of those societies. Yet to think that God is physically male is to negate the fact that anything we believe as God must not have actually corporeal form, even though we’ve been taught to see God as such.

If we go back to the consciousness of Oneness (that we are all made of the same “stuff”), then that means God is that same stuff, too. So whatever we see around us is a manifestation of God-stuff. Or, as Holmes put it, “the body of God.” So, our consciousness creates reality. Say WHAT?!?

Yep, and I know that brings up a LOT of different emotions. Over the next week on the Facebook® page of Spirit, Mind and Body Foundation we’ll be discussing how to increase our awareness of “God made manifest” within us and all those around us. How will that look and how will that help us have a life more worth living?18

Well, if our consciousness creates reality – meaning that we are cause to the effect in our lives – how can we have more of what we want; and, conversely, less of what we do NOT want? How can we deal with seemingly impossible choices or disastrous events? We’ll include all of that and more. Intrigued? I am! So please join me daily and let’s get to the bottom of this!

In Spirit, Truth and Playfulness,

Do You Want to Be Alone?

Theme for the week of April 11:
You Cannot Disconnect From Life

Affirmation:
We see a world in which we live and grow as One Global Family
that respects and honors the interconnectedness of all life.

Do you ever want to get away from it all? As complicated as our modern lives can get at times it’s no wonder if you do. We all deserve a break from the daily grind. Or not! We could talk about when we let ourselves get into jobs or lives that are a grind, but that’s not our topic.

11Apparently, Greta Garbo has been mis-quoted for decades – that happens a lot more than we’d like to admit! She didn’t say she wanted to be alone; she said she wanted to be let alone. There IS a difference!

I once heard a saying, “Wherever you go there you are.” In other words, we can't run away from our problems, at least not for very lone. The same is true if we try to completely disconnect from life. It’s not possible. Sure we can go camping for the weekend in the woods, or go completely off the grid, but we are still interconnected with all life around us.

To some that might feel like we can never be alone with our thoughts. To others it might be a comfort to know we always have the support and energy of others with us. How do you feel about it?

It can be exhausting if we think we have to do it all, go it alone or tough it out. As long as we can get our ego to suspend judgment, asking for help or working with others provides something that we all crave on one level – connection. The physical, social, philosophical and sexual connections we experience nurture and sustain us as we move through our spiritual experience in our human forms.

Over the next week on the Facebook® page of Spirit, Mind and Body Foundation we’ll be discussing how to increase our awareness of the interconnectedness of all life. And, we’ll look at new ways of using our connections to have truly amazing lives. Join us!

In Spirit, Truth and Playfulness,

Powerful Healing

Theme for the month of April
The Global Vision:  Kinship With All Life

Theme for the week of April 4:
Place No Limit On Principle

We believe in healing through the power of this Mind.”
– Ernest Holmes

Did you know that some people won’t pray for the “little things,” because they’re afraid they’ll bother God? “God’s got bigger problems to deal with than my bad back, relationship issues, etc.” Seriously?

Divine Mind or Universal Intelligence, other terms for God – that power that is greater than us, but which we exist through – doesn’t have time management issues! If such an intelligence and power could both conceive of our universe (and countless others, no doubt) AND continue to see that creation expand without end, don'tcha think It can handle it?!?

We believe in a power greater than us that, through us, heals all that we perceive needs healing. We pray affirmatively, with power and conviction, to adjust our consciousness and know the truth of our being.07A

That truth is that we are one with all living things around us. We are intricately and eternally connected to the planet upon which we live and the ground on which we stand, as well as the water and air that give us life.

This week on the Facebook® page for Spirit, Mind and Body Foundation we’ll be discussing healing, the interconnectedness of life and how we can more perfectly align with the energies around us. That may sound more like a nine-week course, but we’re going to give it a shot anyway!

It’ll be fun to push ourselves, challenge our misconceptions about this divine power at our disposal and, yes, participate in the healing of ourselves, others and our beautiful planet. Come play with us!

In Spirit, Truth and Playfulness,
Terry
