CHOICE

Book Cover front 2nd edition JPGCHOICE
My daughter called me to tell me that a high school boyfriend who had remained a friend, died suddenly at the age of forty-five. That same day, my granddaughter’s friend was killed in an automobile accident on the way back from basketball practice. Also on that same day two police officers, best friends of her uncle, were shot and killed in the line of duty. All of this loss hit my daughter and her friends suddenly. What do you do? Where do you turn? How do you live with this kind of tragedy?

Life comes to us in a series of ups and downs. Life may seem good, bad, terrible, or tragic. In Science of Mind, we learn how to handle the ups and downs of life through classes, reading, and meditation. A wonderful peace comes from building our awareness of the presence of the indwelling God – always with us, wherever we are. We learn that all is God and that wherever God is, there is good. We learn to make a choice – we can choose to know that God’s Divine Plan is taking place. We learn that what looks like tragedy to us is a thread in the tapestry of life. There are blessings that we can’t foresee, but they are there nevertheless.

Let’s choose to have faith in God’s Divine plan for all of us. Let’s choose to take the time to go within and feel that deep peace of Spirit. It’s always there for us, for we are never alone. What a blessing it is to know that!

AFFIRM: Today I choose to see my life in the context of God’s Divine Plan. I choose to take the time to live more consciously in the Presence. I allow life to proceed in the perfect way in God’s perfect timing.

BITTERNESS

Joy is a Choice

JOY

GETTING RID OF THE BITTERS.

We are to know the passing events cannot hinder the onward march of the soul. – Ernest Holmes, The Science of Mind

Yesterday a dear friend wrote to me that a friend of hers got a great job that she, herself, wanted. She was happy for her friend, but asked “How do I get rid of being bitter?”

Sometimes life seems unfair. The truth is that no one can take your good from you. The job was her friend’s good. My friend’s good is still here. We may have a glorious dream of what our life is going to be. Then something happens that knocks us for a loop. The dream is shattered. it couldn’t happen, not to us, but it does happen. What did we do wrong? Why do we have to go through this?

Your good comes to you at the right time in the perfect way. Your life always happens in God’s Divine Plan and in God’s perfect timing. Sometimes that seems too long for us to wait. We don’t want to wait for what we want. We want it now. We think we need it now. When we learn to trust God and relax into the Peace of Spirit, we learn to let go and allow God’s perfect plan to work for us. We are rewarded in a far greater way than we would have first imagined. God is Infinite Wisdom which is always indwelling within us That wisdom is within us and always available to us.

Take the time now to go within to that place where God always is. Allow that perfect peace to flow through you. Know now that God wants all that is good and perfect for you.

AFFIRMATION: Today I know that God’s perfect timing is at work in my life. I now turn my life over to God, knowing that my success is assured.

THE POWER OF GRACE

GRACE

There is no greater power in the universe than the power of God’s love. Through love and grace, I overcome challenges in every area of my life. My heart is filled with thanksgiving because I know that God’s will for me is good and only good. I claim my good now. Even before I ask, God has already given. The more I realize that God has already given everything, the more I live in that place of grace and peace.

Today my life is transformed by the power of God’s grace.

PROBLEMS

Trust the ProcessPROBLEMS/CHALLENGES/PROJECTS

Instead of naming it a problem, which has a negative connotation to it, we can call it a challenge or a project. Life is filled with issues. It’s part of life. Difficulties or challenges seem to come when we least expect them. We sometimes ask “Why Me? Why Now? Haven’t I had enough problems for one lifetime?” When we go through the hard times, we can compare it to Jesus being forced to carry his own cross, or Moses wandering in the desert. We can look at these challenges as cleansing rituals. They purge us of our cosmic impurities and prepare us for a greater life. We are here to accomplish something, to learn and to grow spiritually. When challenges are thrust upon us, we can know that God has already given us all the strength, power and wisdom we need to get us through them and to come out of each crises stronger than we were before.

Know that when we’re in the dark, there is a reason for the darkness. We need that growing time. There is a perfect timing–God’s timing. I call it Divine Timing. While we’re waiting for the light to come, we are trusting, knowing the truth. Accept what is. As we accept what is, peace and joy are inevitable.

When we view the problem or challenge as a project, it give us a different perspective of the situation. If it’s a project, it means there’s a way to go about making the project have a successful outcome.
In a recent sermon Rev. Dr. Christian Sorenson said “A problem is an opportunity and not a roadblock. It is an opportunity in which we can use our self to create our dream.”

He also said, “When an obstacle comes up, “Don’t take your eye off the vision. Let them (obstacles) be a launching pad for your vision.”

Above all, stop giving energy to the negative, to the problem. Think on the solution instead. Be assured that your life will turn around.

Maya Angelou said, “He would not have carried me this far to let me down now.

Affirmation: I know that whatever happens, God means it for good, and I now place my trust in the Divine Presence. I have the strength and courage to go on. There is a brighter day ahead for me.

PROSPERITY

MONEY, MONEY, MONEY

Excerpt: FROM HERE TO SERENITY: A Spiritual Guide to Transform Your Life.  www.gmanishor.com

Do you have a feeling in the back of your mind, (perhaps planted there when you were very young), that poverty is a virtue? This is old, out-of-date thinking. what could be virtuous about being poor, about not being able to pay the rent, about not having enough to eat, about barely being able to exist? Nothing.

To release debt from our life we must first forgive. God is always at the center of everything we are experiencing. You will know that forgiving is finished when you can be grateful for the wisdom you have received through the process of forgiveness.

It is very important to give thanks when we receive a gift, no matter how small the gift or amount may seem. Sometimes we are in such a rush we don’t even notice the extent of god’s gifts to us. Take the time to notice these blessings. Keep a Gratitude Journal to help you realize how very blessed you are.

GIVING & RECEIVING

                  GIVING

“It is well go give when asked, but it is better to give unasked, through understanding: and to the open-handed the search for one who shall receive is joy greater than giving.” -The Prophet, Kahlil Gibran

When we give in love and with joy we are blessed as much as those to who we give. Our giving lifts the giver as well as the receiver. Generosity comes from the heart and without thought of any return at all. Can you do that? Do you do that? I know that you do. Bless you.

CHILDREN

                       FREEDOM

“Your children are not your children, They are the sons and daughters of Life’s longing for itself. They come through you but not from you, And though they are with you yet they belong not to you.”  Kahlil Gibran

If you’ve been reading my last few Blogs, you will probably realize that I am in love with the writings of Kahlil Gibran and have been reading and rereading The Prophet.

I have 4 children, a girl and 3 boys. They are grown now. Before I read Gibran I knew that it was necessary for me to release my children. Not release them from my heart, but release them from my advice. I have let them live their own lives. I have attempted to live the best life I could as an example, but not a perfect example. I’ve made many mistakes. But I did the best I could at the time. I am proud of and love  all of them deeply. Now in my later years. I see them. Each is different. Each is special to me. I am grateful that I’ve had them in my life. Like this hummingbird mother, I let them fly.

Dedication
