The other day I noticed a friend wearing her “Complaint-free World” bracelet. I wonder where mine went? Did I make 21 days without complaining? NOT! If I had, you’d all have heard about it.

For the past three weeks we’ve been studying the power of prayer on Sunday mornings … What if all our complaining is really a cry for prayer?

What if the next time we felt ourselves starting to complain, we did a Spiritual Mind Treatment instead?

Ernest Holmes writes on page 152 of the Science of Mind:

“Prayer is constructive, because it enables us to establish closer contact with the Fountain of Wisdom, and we are less likely to be influenced by appearances around us – to judge “according to appearance.”

We can be creating a solution instead of compounding the problem!

Or what if when we heard someone else complaining, instead of joining them, we silently stated the Truth about the situation?

Ernest Holmes writes on the same page:

“Prayer has stimulated countless millions of people to higher thoughts and nobler deeds.”

With the busyness of the season, the crowded streets and parking lots, the long lines in traffic and in the stores, etc., instead of complaining – let’s Treat!!

SPIRITUAL MIND TREATMENT

There is only One Life – that Life is God’s Life, and this is the Life I am living. I am so pleased to know this Truth, and to let It express though me each and every day.

I am grateful for the ability to drop my need to complain. Life is about solutions and is bigger than any challenge I can attract to myself.

I celebrate my ability to be a force for good in my own life as well as the lives of others. I am so grateful to have a tool for changing my consciousness – Spiritual Mind Treatment. I know that as I change my consciousness, I make a difference in the world.

This is good, very good. I accept the power of my word and release it to the Law, knowing it is already so. And so it is.

Hi Rev. Angelica,
Great message ... and great blog. I agree, complaints call us to treatment or prayer. I think if we repress our complaints, we may miss the call to pray.
Keep the faith!
