It’s Alright and All Right!
— Rev. Barbara Samuel and Neal Klassen
“The principle of any science is invisible, theoretical, as is our idea of Spirit. No one has seen God; no one has seen Life; what we have seen is the manifestation of Life. No one has seen Intelligence; we experience it. No one has ever seen Causation; we can see what It does, we deal with Its effects. We do not see Beauty. The artist feels beauty and depicts it as best he can, and the result of his effort is what we call the beautiful… We do not see Life, we experience living. Causation is invisible.”
— Ernest Holmes
As we embark on our next great adventure and journey in community, we are surrounded by the sense and knowing that it’s alright and all right! Let’s go on a little adventure of life together with Rev. Barbara Samuel and Neal Klassen!
Tune in early at 10:20am to hear the music of New Thought musician, Jesse Powers.
This Week’s Science of Mind Theme
So Happy Together
A life of play and rest is important for our health. Play helps us to build relationships filled with joy and meaning. What if our whole community embraced the idea of playing together as a key component of healthy living?
The first step toward a life of play, fun and joy with others is to open up to the willingness to BE with others in a playful way. It’s not always easy to allow ourselves to be seen in the vulnerable light that inherently comes with play. It involves overcoming the fear of taking off the mask of public acceptability and appropriateness and allowing your inner child out to romp around.
Accepting invitations for play is an essential step. When someone is willing to leave their comfort zone and invite you into their world, connect with your own sense of joy and wonder and say yes!
Loosening up in front of people, being our authentic, silly, joyful selves gives people a glimpse into our hearts. Explore the ways in which you can share a life of play with your loved ones! Find a partner to dance with, play an inclusive board game. Carry this energy into the entire community. Let play be the gateway into deeper relationships!
We will have a farewell and Releasing Ceremony conducted by Dr. Nadene Rogers this Saturday, March 26th at 10:30am at the Peace Centre. Dr. Nadene is creating a special ceremony for us as a group to facilitate our conscious closure of the Peace Centre. She’ll create a special opportunity for us to say a tender and heartfelt thank you and goodbye to our building. We’d love to see you there. Conscious endings create a beautiful fresh energy for wonderful new beginnings of our next greater yet-to-be. We hope you can join us.
