What Are Your BeLIEfs?
— Dr. Deborah Gordon
“You are to find the roots of your life in pure Spirit… Lose your sense of being separated from your good and you will find that you are united with it.”
— Ernest Holmes
Dr. Deborah explores the lies held within our beliefs. This quote gives a clue to her Sunday message.
“You should let go of the lesser in order to experience the greater. This is not a bad bargain. If you lose a sense of unhappiness you will become happy. If you lose a sense of confusion you will be at peace. … This is not the easiest thing to do. When you are in pain it is difficult to affirm peace. When you are in want it is hard to affirm abundance. But this is the true meaning of losing your life. What you lose is a false sense of being. You are trading the unreal for the real, the false for the true. … If you wish to live in the kingdom of heaven, forget hell.”
— from This Thing Called You, pg. 81-82 by Ernest Holmes

The SOM theme for August is “A Pause for Guidance”. This month, we pause for guidance, rest and rejuvenation, and we prepare for the next leg of our journey. We welcome joy, innovation, authenticity, vulnerability and the opportunity to evolve our thinking.
This Week’s Science of Mind Theme
Time for a Tune-up
It is time for a personal tune-up to ensure we are aligned with our life values so we may continue on our path, whole and with joy. We consider being in alignment with our personal values of spirituality, relationships, time and health.
Just like cars need a tune-up, we also need to take time on a regular basis to have a spiritual tune-up. Take this week to:
get support with a regular spiritual tune-up;
evaluate where you would like improvement in your life and be teachable in those areas; and
lose that which you don’t want and share the thing that you do want.
Start being that which you want to experience more of in the world. You already have it within you.
