Shade or Sunshine

Ernest Holmes, Founder 

Ernest HolmesThe relationship between the individual and the Universal Mind is one of reflection. That is what we image for ourselves, It images for us. Then it follows that the very law which creates bondage could as easily create freedom. The Divine intends freedom for us but the very fact that we have  creative thought, and that we real individuals , presupposes the use of our creativeness in more that one way.

We can sit in the shade or move into the sunshine. Sitting the shadow we may not really believe that there is any sunshine. But the Sun would be there all the time and all the time we are in bondage the real freedom exists. It is there but we must awake to it. The Law of Mind as quickly creates one form as another for us and we must allow the patterns of our thought to become molded from the  highest sense of Reality we possess. 

By giving our complete attention to any one idea we automatically embody it. We attract to ourselves the objective likeness of this embodiment. The thought becomes a thing.  The mental state takes on form, color and temporary reality. We outwardly experience our states of consciousness. but since the apparent without is merely a reflection of the within, which is the cause, what we need to do is to start with the simple proposition of the creative power of thought and from this inner recognition know that circumstances are formed and held in place. 

Ernest Homes was our Founder and author of “Science of Mind”.

What We Believe

Connecting community to Spirit!

We recognize that an inherent desire in every individual is to realize the person God intended us to be. As we realize our true God selves, the greatest gift we can give another is to support him or her in becoming that God person too.

Most important, every man, woman and child who lives in the Universe is significant to the Creator. Our doors will forever be open to all…
