Yesterday, Rev. Darlene Schneider and I traveled to Bellingham Wa., to attend a Religious Science International Regional Meeting. It was delightful to spend the day with 17 of our peers – greeting once again the ones we knew and meeting some we didn’t. It was also delightful to actively participate in the greater idea of our organization.
On the way home I was thinking about the growth I have seen in R.S.I. in the 20 years I have been a minister. I thought about this in alignment with the Law of Attraction. When I first started my ministry, there was strife in our organization. We spent time thinking about it, and talking about it -- not very nicely. The strife got worse until we finally decided to practice what we preach and change our minds. Since then, we have grown and become a more conscious organization.
Look back over the past 20 years of your life. I’m sure you will find you have had some amazing growth as well. Does our growth mean we won’t ever experience strife again. No! Life is full of ups and downs. The human experience is the co-existence of opposites. It is how we react to those ups and downs that is important! We have to consciously work at it! Wallace Wattles, author of The Science of Getting Rich wrote: "To think TRUTH regardless of appearance is laborious and requires the expenditure of more power than any other work a person has to perform." What I know is true is - it CAN be done!
Something else I now clearly understand, is that it is no longer appropriate for us to settle for “less than.” If you think about it, everything you are experiencing in your life right now is because you accepted it be that way. You’ve accepted your health, your wealth, your relationships, the way you do your work in our world. You’ve either accepted it as all good, or you might have settled for less than in one area or another. When I settle for less than, I loose my zest for life, my momentum, along this Sacred Path. How about you?
I’d like you to know that Life is conspiring to awaken us in every moment. Be a part of the conspiracy. Conscious people settle only for the best. Our best shines through our every action. Let your reactions to the experiences in your life be real, and let your actions be for the highest good and greatest joy for all.
Just think what our lives will be like 20 years from now!
Blessings, Rev. Angelica
SPIRITUAL MIND TREATMENT
I celebrate the One. One great Heart in which we all reside. One great Mind which we all use. One great Life we all live.
Today I choose to honour that great One by living my life magnificently. I no longer settle for anything that is not for my highest and best good. I open my mind, my heart and my arms to receive all the Universe is conspiring to give me. I am ready to be Spirit in action with grace and ease. As I survey my world, I see that who I am is of service to others.
This Life is God’s life and it is a great one! I love how it feels to have wonderful relationships, vibrant health and experience more than enough good in my life. I am so grateful to know these Principles, and to be willing to put them to use for the good of all.
Gratefully I release these words, knowing they are so, and so It is.
