Dawn of a New Day
— Rev. Jeanette Vinek
“This new day has greeted us with no rules; unconditional opportunity. Do not dilute the power of this new day with the hardship of yesterday. Greet this day the way it has greeted you; with open arms and endless possibility.”
— Steve Maraboli
According to Wiktionary, “dawn of a new day” means: a new beginning; a fresh start; an important, promising turning point. It’s been a challenging couple of years. We’ve been shut down, locked down, isolated, masked, and at times, divided. What we know is that it’s always darkest before the dawn.
These past few weeks, there has been a sliver of light, the breaking of dawn. It feels like a promising turning point, a new beginning, a fresh start. We are open, willing and ready. Are you?
Explore the Dawn of a New Day: our new day, together in community. Join Rev. Jeanette on April 3rd at 10:30am PT on Facebook Live.
The SOM theme for April is Living Everyday Wonder — Creativity.
Creativity is who and what we are. It will always call for our attention and expression. Seen or unseen, Spirit always creates through every breath-taking scenic vista as well as every challenge. When we listen and respond to our intuitive nudges and sparks, we dance with Creation Itself!
This Week’s Science of Mind Theme
Say Yes to the YES!
Your life is your palette, and your dreams and desires are the medium. We move beyond doubts and fears about our abilities, talent, or imagination. Choosing to know ourselves as worthy of and fully connected to the Infinite Creator, we know that we are limitlessly sourced by a Limitless Source, and that includes our creativity! What is true about God is absolutely true about us, so we are saturated NOW with the magnificent artistry of the Universe Itself!
God is all there is; therefore, all we are is God. We replicate Infinite Love, Power and Presence. Being individualized celebrations of the Infinite Divine, we are connected to one another, but we are unique in our expressions.
Without you and me in our physical forms, God’s ideas are unrealized. We have and we are the immediate access to the Divine. We can “partner with God” for joy, peace, and wholeness.
The Law of Cause and Effect is unbiased and doesn’t play favourites. That which we give the Law to work with — especially when we add the power of imagination, passion, enthusiasm, and energy — will demonstrate in response.
Celebrate all of your discoveries and demonstrations. Whether they seem small or huge, they are evidence that Spiritual Law is working!
