May: Spiritual Living through Creativity
May 21 CCSL Lesson: Spark from nothing to Insight.
May 21 Concordia Lesson: " Always Creating"
Science of Mind point of view:
Creative Mind and Success by Ernest Holmes, Ideas of the Infinite, Page 44:
“Creation does not mean making something out of nothing. Creation is the passing of Spirit into form and is eternally going on. Spirit cannot change, for being All, there is nothing for It to change into. This is self-evident.”
Science of Mind Text by Ernest Holmes, Spirt, the Changeless, Page 83
Three suggested talking points with illustrations:
Spiritual energy is Infinite, and its tendency is to be expressed. Life is forever creative and creating.
Just remember that what you create is not really your creation but the creation of Spirit through you.
Today, I call forth the infinite and inexhaustible Spark of Spirit to create through me.
