Habits, Mindsets and Beliefs — Oh My!
— Dr. Deborah Gordon
“According to Bohr and Heisenberg (physicists), the universe exists as an infinite number of overlapping possibilities.
They’re all there in a kind of quantum soup with no precise location or state of being until something happens to lock one of the possibilities into place.”
— Gregg Braden
Dr. Ernest Holmes tells us that:
“Our hidden beliefs and deeply held convictions inevitably reflect in our experience and in our environment, both in the physical condition of our bodies and in all our affairs in general.”
— SOM Beyond Limits course
The Science of Mind urges us to look at our beliefs so we can consciously choose to change those that no longer serve us. One of the keys to doing this is to create new habits that can serve to lead us to a greater experience than what we may currently be experiencing.
We are now livestreaming in 3 places!
Tune in early at 10:20am to hear the music of New Thought musician, Karen Drucker.
This Week’s Science of Mind Theme
The Ultimate Fear-Buster
There are only two emotions: Love and Fear. Love is divine; it is the activity of God. Fear is a tool of the ego, based on a belief that we are separate from God and separate from each other.
Fear arises from the false belief in duality, a belief in an evil power opposed to God. The cause of our fears is based on not knowing who we really are. We release fear through a faith founded on the thought that God is ALL there is.
The moment we realize that we are in the midst of fear, we must not struggle to get away from it. Rather, we must relax and declare the Truth, remembering that the Truth will set us free. Let us invoke this truth by saying, "Wherever I am, there is God. Let there be light in me!" The moment we affirm this truth, fear will vanish.
Love is Universal and the only energy in which God exists. Releasing fear allows us to enter into Love. Love has the power to transform our fears.
In-Person Service at the RCA

“If you could see the object of your fear until you really understand it, it would no longer exert any effect on you. You can do this to the degree where you become aware that you are divinely guided and protected, and establish your understanding of this in a definite way.”
