Practicing the Practices
Practicing the Practices
— Dr. Deborah Gordon
“All power derives from conscious or unconscious cooperation with the principle.”
— from The Tao of Leadership by John Heider
We’re always being encouraged to keep up our spiritual practices. To get a better understanding of the value and importance of doing this, Dr. Deborah Gordon shares her journey of practicing her practices.
If God is all there is, then EVERYTHING in our life is God. Doubt of the circumstances in our human experience is a calling for reconnecting our humanness with our spiritual essence. The hesitation we experience in our life is a blessing, it offers an opportunity to remember the fundamental truth that God is ALL in our life. Even if we don’t like it or understand it, all of it is pointing us to the fundamental principles of New Thought. There isn’t this life and God’s life. There is only one life, so let us move forward in conviction.
Join Dr. Deborah and the rest of the Sunday Six on Sunday, April 18, 2021 at 10:30am on Facebook Live.
This Week’s Science of Mind Theme
Every new journey we choose to embark on is filled with excitement and anticipation, and there may also be feelings of hesitation. This paradoxical state could be called a “bless-itation” — a combination of blessings and hesitations. As we travel along, we discover the blessings and our hesitations on our new path. Additionally, we have the opportunity to recognize the power of blessing whatever is before us and/or triggering us, greeting it with curiosity. What gifts are discovered during moments of bless-itation?
Hesitation is a symptom of embracing separation. We need only to realign and re-member the core concept that oneness is our nature and life’s nature.
When we hesitate because we don’t know which way to go, sometimes we can just choose one way. Trust there is info in that direction. It might simply be that it’s not the right way to go; but now it’s known, and you can choose again. Often, we discern through action as opposed to knowing everything before we move. All is for us. All can serve us, if we let it.
As we begin new things, we sometimes experience the joy of the newness and the hesitation of uncertainty. The opportunity is to feel the hesitation and appreciate its value, but to not allow it to impede our forward movement.
This week, take note of the bless-itations in your life and be fully present with them.
