Next week Friday I will be "officially" installed as the Pastor of the Center for Spiritual Living Baltimore.
I stated thinking about how I got here. In the past, I've always thought about this Path starting when I was a young adult ... however, this evening driving home, I
remembered being in 4th grade in Ramona Convent Catholic Girls School, running out of the classroom crying. I had just stood up proudly in class and announced I was going to be a priest. Sister irritatedly told me: "Don't be silly - girls can't be priests." and my classmates laughed at me. I got teased about it for months - and because of that - I told them I didn't care what the "rules" were -- I was still going to be one!
That declaration has taken me on an amazing adventure! I played in the Disneyland of metaphysics with great success. I joined various different faith paths and read lots of spiritual books and had fun. In 1979, I had an indescribable Revelation, and just a few weeks later, I discovered Religious Science and knew I'd found Home and my vocation.. The adventures continued. I found myself in Honolulu, Hawai'i, and then started a church on the Big Island. I traveled to awesome power spots around the world. I lived in a different county and I started another church. Now I'm here.
Most of the things I have done were because of an Inner Urging that kept at me until I said Yes. Sometimes I felt I had no choice - yet my choice has always been to be of service to humanity. And in return I have been served well.
I wonder what adventures are ahead -- what ever they are, I know Spirit will guide me well, and I will do my Work to the best of my ability.
And it will be good, very good.
SPIRITUAL MIND TREATMENT
How grateful I am for this thing called Life. I know there is only One Life, that Life is God's Life, and that Life is the life I am living.
I choose to continue to life this Life to the best of my ability, enjoying every moment. I choose to have my expression of this One Life be for the highest good. I choose to continue to be a vehicle for awakening humanity to its spiritual magnificence.
As I do this, the Power of the Universe supports me, the Love of the Universe nurtures me, and Mind of the Universe empowers me.
I am so grateful for all that I am, and all that I will be. I am so grateful I have heard the Inner Voice and honored It and will continue to do so.
My God is so good to me. Gratefully I release these words to the Law of Mind, and so It is.
