CSL Theme: “Courage to Do the Right Thing”
CCSL Lesson: “Courage BEING Divinely Right” Lesson By: Rev Ian Taylor
“There is a perfect pattern and we believe in it, and the perfect pattern is where we are and not somewhere else. It is already within us; this is the divine incarnation -- the involution.” Seminar Lectures p. 21.4
“The great and only awakening that can ever come to man is when he becomes aware of the fact that that which enables him to think, to be conscious, to be creative, is the Mind of God active within him.” The Magic of the Mind (1965) p. 19.2 “The criterion for any man as to what is right or wrong for him is not to be found in some other man’s judgment. The criterion is: Does the thing I wish to do express more life, more happiness, more peace for myself, and at the same time harm no one? If it does, it is right. It is not selfish. But if it is done at the expense of anyone, then in such degree we are making a wrong use of the Law.” Science of Mind p. 270.2 “It [Science of Mind] teaches that conscious communion with the indwelling Spirit opens the avenues of intuition and provides a new starting point for the creative power of the Almighty.” What Religious Science Teaches (1974) “Right action means that every legitimate and constructive purpose I have in mind shall be successfully executed. It means that I shall know what to do, how to think, how to act, how to proceed.” Richer Living (1953) p. 316.1
“There is One Spirit incarnated in everyone, an immortal Presence forever expanding everything, causing everything to grow. What a difference it would make in our human relations if we tried to sense the meaning of this Divine incarnation in all people and adjust our viewpoint to the truth that all are bound together in the unity of God.” 365 Science of Mind p. 72.1
