Lean into the Discomfort


Lean into the Discomfort

Derek Hinchliffe, RScP


“We believe the ultimate goal of life to be a complete freedom from all discord of every nature, and that this goal is sure to be attained by all.

Ernest Holmes, from the Declaration of Principles

I’m not sure about you, but I don’t have complete freedom from all discord, at least not yet. Yes, it is a goal, and yes, I believe it is attainable. Until then, my journey through this thing called life includes discomfort and pain, all of which is an opportunity for learning and for growth. “I lean into discomfort and allow it to teach me.” Please join me this Sunday as I examine how I can turn my discomfort into my guru.

Join Derek Hinchliffe and the rest of the Sunday Six on June 13, 2021 at 10:30am on Facebook Live.


This Week’s Science of Mind Theme

Lean Into the Discomfort

If humanity is to awaken its Spiritual Magnificence, our discomfort must become our guru. Individually and collectively, we must dive deeply into areas we shy away from.

“There is no coming to consciousness without pain.” Carl Jung

In the Eternal Now, there can be no place for Divine anger, unforgiveness, or punishment. Human forgiveness is the process that frees us to live in the Eternal Now. It is the essential step before real spiritual growth can flourish. Science of Mind teaches that the ultimate goal of life is complete emancipation from all discord of every nature, and that this goal is sure to be attained by all.

In Science of Mind, we know that we are perfect, whole, and complete. If our lives are manifesting in a way that is not whole, perfect, and complete or causes us pain, then there is a thought in the way. The thought causing pain is an untruth.

An essential part of healing is to forgive the self for whatever is happening. Forgiveness allows Divine wisdom to well up and flow through our being for answers, wellness, and evolution.

Lean into the pain, discover the message, forgive the untruth, and reclaim your wholeness.


Save the Date

We’re planning a very casual get together with our community to say hello at Kinsmen Park, July 11th at 1pm. No program, no agenda, just an opportunity to be together as we start to ‘open up’ after our time of restrictions due to COVID-19. Mark the date on your calendar!
