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!

Change Is Constant

Liza Kerr, RScP

One thing that I have learned is that change is constant.  No matter how old I get, how wise I feel, how centered I have become – change is always unsettling.  This week as I am faced with changes in my family dynamics, my personal relationship, and being present for a friend and her family as she  approaches her transition my stomach is filled with butterflies and I don’t know any answers.  The only thing I know for certain is the peace that fills me when I allow myself to open to the presence of God. The prayer today is for everyone out there that is feeling afraid, lonely, disconnected, or somehow separate from your source. 

I open myself to that one source that is God.  I stand before God with an open broken heart and I surrender.  I allow myself to feel everything that I need to feel, and I know that it is all part of that thing called God.  As I surrender, I allow myself to be flooded with Love, Peace, Harmony, Acceptance, Joy, and Compassion knowing that these are all qualities of God.  I know that I am one with God.  There is no separation between me and God.  God as me, me as God; I am who is God.  I am an individualized personification of God as the one source; perfect God, perfect being, perfect man.  I am love, and goodness, I am peace and harmony, compassion and understanding.  Just as this is true for me it is true for each of you.  Each of you is love, compassion, peace, hope, harmony, acceptance, joy, and compassion. 

I speak my word and my word is law that as I surrender my journey to God, I know to the core of my being that there is only love.  Love guides the way it is the shining beacon that always guides me back to the right path.  When I choose to see everything through a filter of this pure love that is the essence of God I am able to trust the path before me.  I honor my feelings of pain, anguish, sorrow, loneliness.  I honor them and allow myself to feel, but I choose to only let them delicately touch my soul.  I consciously choose to acknowledge these feelings and simply let them go.  I surrender them to the essence of love.  As I do this the butterflies in my stomach settle, and I am at peace.  As I realize love and peace for myself, I also realize it for each of you.  I claim for you a peaceful journey.  I claim for you the peace that comes from surrendering to the Love that is God.      

I give thanks knowing that this manifestation has already occurred.  I give thanks for the change that is occurring in my life and recognize the wonderful opportunity I have to learn and grow.

I release this prayer to the Law of Mind, and anchor it into place by saying AND SO IT IS.

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…
