Navigating in Uncertain Times
— Dr. Kenn Gordon
“If uncertainty is unacceptable to you, it turns into fear. If it is perfectly acceptable, it turns into increased aliveness, alertness, and creativity.”
— Eckhart Tolle
If there’s ever been a time of uncertainty for those of us on this planet, this is the time. Between pandemics, elections and life changes, transition and transformation lies rooted just below the surface.
If we choose to continue to live in joy, being aware, awake and alert is no longer an option. It is mandatory. Life is meant to be lived and lived well. The decisions we make now will truly effect what our tomorrow will look like.
Join Dr. Kenn Gordon as he shares the tools and hints that he is trying to embody in order to bring some certainty to this uncertain time.

This Week’s Point of View from the Science of Mind
When we set the law in motion with our own thoughts and emotions, things start to happen.
Spirit is inherently neutral. It is the field of infinite possibility that organizes everything in creation – the seasons, the biological rhythms of our bodies, birth and death. It is pure awareness or consciousness, pure potential, which manifests all things. This process is set in motion by our thoughts and emotions, whether conscious or unconscious, individual or collective. God doesn’t act until we do.
To create change in the world, we must first set an intention, and then spend time every day sitting in the feeling of what we desire, either through prayer or meditation or visioning. Think it, feel it, believe it! In this place of faith and knowing, feelings of disbelief will fade away; wanting will be replaced by knowing that the desired outcome is already in existence. It is this conscious state that sets the Law of Manifestation into motion. Feeling ALWAYS precedes demonstration.
Taking divinely-inspired action is what sets intention apart from fantasy. What would life look like if you already had the things you want? Live as if the desired outcome was already so.
Every intention is set in the mind of the One Itself. Follow your inner guidance – the voice of the Divine within you, as you make decisions, and do what you feel inspired to do each step of the way. Following God’s guidance feels effortless and fun!

Grief Support Group

The group offers a safe and respectful space to share, listen, and receive compassionate support and prayer from others. It's free to attend and donations are appreciated.
