Our own Ann Rea welcomes you and gives an introduction to what we believe with "The Thing Itself."
This Philosophy and teaching that is really a way of life. Is Science of Mind the only practice that will "get us there"? Wherever that is... no. SOM (for short) is that it is a compilation of all of the great teachings beginning with ancient times. Every tradition is honored, every individual is welcomed and loved just as they are. If you could change your life by changing the way you think, would you?
The second step in becoming familiar with our philosophy following our look at 'The Thing Itself' (God, Spirit, The Universe) is to explore The Way It Works. Why is that valuable to know? Look at it this way. If someone gives you a completely outfitted bright red tool box and you have no clue what any of the tools are for, it is useless and irrelevant. Ours is a PRACTICAL philosophy intended to give us a road map to changing our life for the better. Sound good?
Ann Rea continues her talks on the basic principles of what we believe. The conversation continues covering the first four sections of The Science of Mind book written by Ernest Holmes and the teaching that evolved. For those of us who study and practice this Philosophy, it doesn't seem to matter how often we revisit these pages, we learn or realize or are uplifted by something new.
We explore our spirituality, discover tools we can easily use to make better choices and improve our life and life around us. And the question might remain, "What difference does it make?" Our personal world, let alone that of our global family is still far from ideal. You might find the "difference" is in the bigger picture.
Ann Rae talks about another principle of what we believe. How to use what? We may have felt it since early childhood. We may have had inklings along the way. Despite all of the noise and evidence to the contrary, we may have sensed there was Something in the Universe beyond this physical frame of reference. This is the "What" we explore today.
We may think the "yeah buts" we habitually say are just being logical. Actually, they are arguing for limitations we don't have. We may think the "yeah buts" justify why we can't or won't choose differently. Actually, they may instead be costumes for feelings of unworthiness.
Let peace begin with you.
