Consciously Engaging our Circuitry
— Dr. Deborah Gordon
“We need not leave the world; for we may engage in all of its activities without being controlled by them; we may be in the world of affairs as masters of ourselves and our minds.”
— Ernest Holmes
Spirit (Life, Love, God) is living out Its perfection as Us. It is knowing more of Itself as us. The only way that Spirit has of bringing forth our values for a “World that Works for Everyone” is through us.
Spirit is always 100% engaged with us. The question is: are we 100% engaged with Spirit?
For more on this topic, join Dr. Deborah Gordon and the rest of the Sunday Six this Sunday, November 15, 2020 at 10:30am on Facebook Live.
This Week’s Point of View from the Science of Mind
Being spiritual doesn’t mean pulling away from the world; it means mastering it. Even though Spirit is truth and the world is just Its effects, this doesn’t mean that we can withdraw from the world and think we are closer to Spirit.
We are one, so that means that we are connected at the subatomic level. No matter who is our leader, or who is in our communities or household, let us stand for love in all arenas.

“The fact that I can plant a seed and it becomes a flower, share a bit of knowledge and it becomes another’s, smile at someone and receive a smile in return, are to me continual spiritual exercises.”
