CONCORDIA CENTER FOR SPIRITUAL LIVING CELEBRATION SERVICE APRIL 23, 2017
2017 Value: Spiritual Living through Transformation and Evolution April - Spiritual Living through Transformation and Evolution - We do deep inner personal work of self-discovery and healing to reveal the greater truth of our divinity, wholeness, and freedom. CSL Topic: Dealing with Conditions CONCORDIA LESSON: How to keep your creative juices flowing sweetly We teach in the Science of Mind that there is a Power for Good in the Universe and we can use It. We consciously use it when we do Spiritual Mind Treatment. We expect that, as a result of our treatment, our beliefs to have been changed, and, because the Law of Cause and Effect takes our beliefs to create the conditions in our worlds, we expect the conditions in our worlds to be changed. – Dr Karen Kushner “Here is the way to do it. You are not dealing with conditions… You are dealing with thought, thought, nothing else, thought and Spirit.” Love and Law, p. 49, Ernest Holmes “It depends then upon what we think what we shall become, and the sooner individuals who are seeking to operate this principle will realize that it depends only upon what they think, and depends upon nothing else, and the sooner they learn to depend upon nothing else, the sooner they will demonstrate that principle.” Love and Law, p. 45, Ernest Holmes “The possibility of demonstrating does not depend upon environment, condition, location, personality or opportunity. It depends solely upon our belief and our acceptance, and our willingness to comply with the Law through which all good comes.” The Science of Mind, p. 174-5, Ernest Holmes
