Be a Sponge!


Be a Sponge!

— Rev. Barbara Samuel


A grateful heart is like a sponge that soaks up God’s goodness.

— Joel Osteen

This Week’s Science of Mind Theme

Looking Ahead

Having taken stock, we’re ready to plan our journey and look to where it is that we want to go. What possibilities lie beyond the horizon? Where are the growing edges in ourselves, our communities, and our movement?

We see a world in which every person lives in alignment with his/her highest spiritual principle, emphasizing unity with God and connection with each other; a world in which individually and collectively we are called to a higher state of consciousness and action.

Creation is an expression of the One Infinite Reality. It is inherently Good and is ever-evolving toward greater expression of Good.

Self-awareness is the practice that illuminates our alignment with each of the Science of Mind Principles. It is the practice of being conscious of one’s motivations, internal dialogue, and hidden beliefs. It is a willingness to observe and take responsibility for one’s internal and external choices. Self-awareness is the foundation for conscious choice.

We have the Timeless Wisdom to apply to our evolutionary vison of a world that works for everyone by harnessing, not only the power of our collective mind, but our collective heart and our collective body as well. This is an embodied spirituality that will take us to the next level of our evolution.
