The World is Your Oyster
The World is Your Oyster

“Pearls don't lie on the seashore. If you want one, you must dive for it!”
— Chinese Proverb
YOU are the architect and author of your life. Your thoughts are creative. Every thought you have, word you speak, and action you take is a “cause” set in motion.

This Week’s Science of Mind Theme
Rise and Re-Emerge
Self-awareness is the practice that illuminates our alignment with each of the Science of Mind Principles. It is the practice of being conscious of one’s motivations, internal dialogue, and hidden beliefs. It is a willingness to observe and take responsibility for one’s internal and external choices.
We rise and re-emerge by recognizing that:
“The first step for you to take involves becoming aware that you already have the God-qualities you wish to cultivate and experience in everyday life! You already have what you want.”
— Ernest Holmes
We can renew our curiosity and become self-aware of our humanity and our connection to life itself by embracing the joyful and inquisitive nature of a young child. Through this self-awareness, we recognize our inherent God qualities and nurture them as we cultivate practices of conscious choice and self-renewal.
Through a practice of affirmative prayer, sacred study, and the inward journey, we create a dynamic equilibrium of Divine Right Action.
We spiritually discern what is ours to do on our continued journey as we practice self-love and answer the call to serve.
Your call this week is to gift yourself time to be aware, aligned, and renewed.
Survey for our CSL Kelowna Community
We are so interested in your thoughts! Please make sure to respond to the survey going out to our members and friends this weekend! It’s so important and valuable to try to establish the pulse of our community as we move forward. Please and thank you so very much!
Call for Volunteers
As the summer is coming to an end and we move into the fall, we are looking to start getting the Pandosy Peace Centre ready for use. Amanda Pope would like to arrange a few work parties in the month of September to do some much needed deep cleaning and gardening. If you have a couple of hours you can contribute to either cleaning or gardening, please contact Amanda. It will be fun to get together in some small groups to refresh our Peace Centre.
Also, as we plan for our next iteration of our Sunday Celebrations, Amanda would like to gather a team of people who can assist with the livestream service on Sunday mornings. If you are comfortable using a computer and are interested in being a part of this team, please contact Amanda at firstname.lastname@example.org.
