This Week’s Science of Mind Theme
The Infinite Invisible
God as Presence is innate connection, wondrous creativity, limitless possibility, radiant inspiration, and perfect order. We are all of that, but we must do our part: listen.
There is a “Divine yes” that will not be denied. It is a “yes” that leads to joy, love, challenge, growth, and the on-going “yet-to-be.” The soul’s calling, or your “heart‘s desire” might first appear as a curiosity or an interest. It may then grow to be a pull to know more. Learning to listen through regular spiritual practice brings trust, hope, and vision. The Infinite Invisible’s “yes” may announce Itself through joy and peace, pain or loss. But behind every experience in life, there is a greater “Yes” that awaits our acknowledgement and response.
Moving from head to heart means trusting feelings and imagination. Imagination is connection with God. Releasing the clutter of old ideas creates great spaciousness for invention, re-invention, and innovation. Release creates room for living and thriving. Let go! Lighten the load of who you thought you were, and become the magnificent you that you already are, here and now.
You are Divine now. Your uniqueness, gifts, and dreams are all waiting for you to WAKE UP and accept your divinity! Stop auditioning for your life. Instead, be the vehicle for Spirit’s magnificent expression. You are worthy NOW. When you let God be God in you, you shine as the beloved creation.
Life requires participation. A spectator no longer, we prepare for demonstration. Do things with love, intention and passion, and you will be guided to your next and your next and your next steps.

“The greatest gift Life could have made to me, is me. I am a spontaneous, self-choosing centre in Life, in the great drama of being the great joy of becoming, the certainty of expansion. I could not ask for more and more could not have been given.”
— Ernest Holmes, This Thing Called You
