One Mind, Infinite Connections
— Derek Hinchliffe, RScP
“Science of Mind is not a new religion. It may be added to any spiritual system of thought and is a complement to all.”
— Dr. Ernest Holmes
How many wars have been fought over religion? Most, if not all of them. So how refreshing that the Science of Mind is not demanding to replace, but instead offering to complement any other spiritual system of thought.
Derek Hinchliffe, RScP, looks at the choices we make as we embrace New Thought philosophy. From the mouth of the Amazon to the mouths of babes, he will explore how we can all be one without all being the same.
Join Derek and the rest of the Sunday Six on Sunday, February 21, 2021 at 10:30am on Facebook Live.
This Week’s Science of Mind Theme
One Mind, Infinite Connections
Every religion and spiritual path is in some way connected to that Single River. Every person is connected to The River and to every wellspring. Our connection to God is our connection to one another!
We are an awakened spiritual community dedicated to the vision of the “Global Heart”. The Global Heart Vision is “a world that works for everyone” where poverty, hunger, homelessness, disenfranchisement and war no longer prevail; where forgiveness, compassion, nonviolence, respect, appreciation of beauty and the generous sharing of resources are the norm.
We are open to the impulse and guidance of Spirit, inspired by our vision and directed by our shared values, committed to our core principles and dedicated to transformation.
We engage in compassionate service and support within the organization, communities and the world, bringing forth enlightened citizens and spiritual leaders towards global transformation.
We commit to participate in the awakening of all individuals to their spiritual magnificence and personal power to create an individual life that works within a world that works for everyone.
Annual Membership Drive
February and March are the times of our annual membership drive. We have an easy form on the Ways to Donate page of our website (you can also get to it via the orange MEMBERSHIP button on the home page).
Membership is full of meaning. It gives each of us the opportunity to consciously and mindfully say: “Yes! I choose to belong to the Centre for Spiritual Living Kelowna. This is my spiritual community. I am home.”
Membership is also a legal requirement to be a voting member at our Annual General Meeting which is coming up March 21st. We’ll meet on Zoom to share the “state of our community” and vote in our Board members. This is an open meeting; however, you must be officially signed up and registered as a 2021 member to vote.
Practice Makes Perfect!
By Derek Hinchliffe, RScP
Living the best possible life takes practice, practice, practice. So how do you know what and how to practice?
One way is to sign up for the CSL accredited Spiritual Principles and Practices class Dr. Deborah and I will be teaching on the five Mondays in March from 6pm to 8pm.
We will be offering you proven practices that you can begin using right now, allowing you to manifest a desired goal or intention.
You are going to walk away with some valuable tools to bring about a greater good, a more abundant life, a better condition than existed before.
You will learn how to ask what Spirit’s highest vision is for your life, and how to listen for the answer.
All of this will be done safely over Zoom in an energetic and fun-filled atmosphere.
Using the Ernest Holmes book, “This Thing Called You”, this class is designed for people who are new to the teaching. It’s a brand new class, so it also offers insight and inspiration for those with a greater depth of experience in the Science of Mind philosophy.
The investment is $170, and you can sign up on the Spiritual Principles and Practices event page.
I look forward to connecting with you!
