Activity of Right Ideas

This chapter should be called how to create a new idea and live through it.  Remember we are working with the hows of this philosophy.  How do we create a life that gives us all we desire?  Life is never limited and if we are the result of life, then we are never limited.  Thank Goodness.  Join Rev. Martha and the whole Rio Grande community as we step into the flow!

An Intelligence Far Greater Than Myself

Barbara Kraft, RScP

Barbara Kraft, RScP

 I have recently changed jobs as a result of being laid off.  Because of this I have had the opportunity to use my Practitioner training for myself and to ask my fellow Practitioners to pray for me.

The outcome is that I am in a better job, working for a former boss that I really like, making more money and doing the work I love to do. I would never have sought this change myself.

Believe me there were moments of fear, anxiety, anger, frustration and peace. Yes, peace.

As I move forward into this new adventure, as with any situation that is uncertain, I remind myself with the following treatment. I hope it helps you if you are facing a situation of uncertainty or change.

There is but One presence in the Universe. It is perfect. It is complete, and it is whole. It is Love for only from Love can everything exist. It is Powerful for from power all things are able to be created. It is Intelligence for there is a knowingness of all. The beginning and the end. There is nothing outside of this. It is all encompassing for from it all things are made.

I am made in the imagine and likeness of this source and as such I have within each cell of my body the Love, Power and Intelligence of the Universe. This is at my disposal at every moment of my existence, I only need to access it. Just as I have this Love, Power and Intelligence within me, those I work with and encounter in my life also have this same potential. We are all One of the One. There is no separation just outward differences. The core, soul, or spirit are all One. 

In my moments of fear, frustration, anxiety and loss, I remember this about myself and about those around me. We are all acting from this source with perfection which is the use of all available knowledge at that moment in time to the person who is acting. Therefore the decision to lay me off was perfect, my fear lead me to reach out to those I know which lead me to my former employer and so on. It is this one, complete and perfect Universe that works in mysterious ways and leads me to my perfect outcome. I remember daily that there is an Intelligence far greater than myself that connects all things and people. This connection works in tandem with my desires to unfold my desired experience. I know this to be true. I have seen it and experienced it time and time again. My only required action is to believe and act accordingly. One step in front of another on a path to my outcome. I may not always understand the rationale behind the decisions that are being made that affect me directly or indirectly but I know the perfect outcome is mine to be had. I stand strong in the face of uncertainty knowing that the Truth will be revealed to me as I open to the message. I stay open, willing and in faith that the Universal Presence is working on my behalf.

I am so grateful for this knowingness and for the faith I have gained in studying and practicing SOM. I am so grateful for those in my life that support me as life unfolds the sometimes difficulty experiences. They continually remind me that Good is mine and I must simply believe it and claim it.

I let go and know that the Creative Force has already manifested my greatest desires. I begin to experience them daily as I observe the Universal Presence unfold before me in the people I meet and the situations I encounter.

What We Believe

What We Teach

We teach the Science of Mind, which is the study of Life and the nature of the laws of thought; the idea that we live in a Spiritual Universe; that God or Spirit is in, through, around us; and that this Presence is a loving source of all Good.

Connecting Community Through 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…
