Celebrating Life as Source
— Rev. Karin Wilson
This One Life is my life right now, and I celebrate it out loud!
It’s time to surrender to the Bigger Idea of Life. It’s time for us to move from struggle into celebration. Today we live in the flow, and the joy of simply being alive surrounds us. Rev. Karin Wilson is back to share her thoughts on this topic today.
Join Rev. Karin this Sunday, January 29 at 10:30am PT at Studio 9, 1180 Houghton Road, Kelowna, BC. Doors open at 10:15am. Please visit the event page for more details and a map. Everyone is welcome!
If you are not feeling well, please take good care of yourself and watch us on Facebook Live.
This Week’s Science of Mind Theme
Celebrating Life As Source
What if we were to surrender to Spirit/Source Itself entirely? This is what it takes to Live Out Loud! When we surrender our falsehoods, our fears, and our doubts, we free ourselves to live out loud in celebration. Every day becomes a day to celebrate the simplicity and the beauty of life itself.
Holmes says humanity has a tendency to define life by external conditions. As Religious Scientists, we know that life is an internal experience. In unifying ourselves with the One Mind, we know that Life is eternal – that the external objects and objections before us are merely “sins” – missing the mark. Instead, we return to the source of our being so that we can live in harmony with the Divine that is always with us.
The biggest surrender of all is to love completely. When we love completely, when we hold that as our highest principle, the pathway to forgiveness unfolds for us. We are able to see more in the world, and experience the world as it is meant to be.

“It is the great negations of life that we have to surrender, the doubts and fears and uncertainties, the coldness and unkindness, the lack of love.”
