This Week’s Science of Mind Theme
Seeing Beauty, Feeling Grace
We take a sacred pause to appreciate the beauty, grace and feeling tone of the presence of Spirit within. We recognize that each point along this journey has brought us beautifully to this place of awakened grace.
Conscious appreciation of the beauty and grace within ourselves magnifies these truths outwardly. As such, we recognize the same in others and all living things.
Heaven within every soul is that inner beauty that consciously reawakens daily if we choose it. We can make a conscious decision to look beyond the surface to see the beauty of all. We can recognize the grace that Spirit pours into each of us.
Our collective reawakening provides us the blessing of seeing “what’s old is new again” and what is new is wonderfully welcomed. This reawakening of consciousness arrives in gifts of diverse people and a joy that exudes love.
Each point along our journey has been integral in shaping who we are today. There is an exquisiteness and beauty to this Divine Order.
