Rev Martha Quintana, Senior Minster

Understanding and MisUnderstanding

Sometimes we meet people who are unhappy and seem to be misunderstood.  We also meet other people who seem to be magnets for good and seem to skate along in a world of harmony.  What’s the secret to being the harmonious person rather than the misunderstood person?  Join Rev. Martha at 10:00 a.m. at the Hotel Albuquerque Chapel for the answer!

 The road to freedom is through forgiveness.  I forgive, because I deserve Peace.

There is one infinite presence and power, one love divine, one eternal life; everywhere present, all wise, all knowing, all powerful.  The Divine is the outpouring of love, light, peace, joy and forgiveness; the Source of unlimited and expanding Love.  

I am immersed in this power of Good.  I am whole, complete and perfect in my Oneness with Spirit.  The eternal love of Spirit is the love within me.  The steadfast peace of Spirit is the peace within me.  I am an expression of Spirit; I am joy, peace and compassion. I am the hands, feet, eyes, ears, voice of The Divine.  I radiate every attribute of Spirit.  As I know this is true for me, I know with certainty this is true for you as well.  For wherever I am, you are.  I carry you in my heart.

I am guided by Spirit’s wisdom in this moment and every moment.  I claim and know there is nothing in me that can stop the love of Spirit.  I express joy and peace and love in each word that I speak and each thought that I think and each action I take.  I let go of anything that does not serve my Highest Good by going to my holy silence, creating space for clear guidance, the whisper of God from within.  The Voice.  I let go of what others think about me and align myself solely with my Oneness with The Divine.  As I release the weight of shame, guilt, resentment, I allow for more and more Good to show up in my life.  I relax in the knowing that Pure Joy is my birthright and I claim it now.  I embrace being a creative expression of God, filled to overflowing with love, wisdom, joy and freedom.  And in that freedom Life Is Good.  Thinking my Highest Thought is exciting and uplifting. Happiness is my only way of life.  Fun permeates my life more and more as I create unlimited space by letting go of what is no longer serving me and as I embrace being the person God intends me to be.

With Love and Deep Appreciation, I release my Word into the Law knowing it cannot come back to me void.  IT IS DONE!  IT IS COMPLETE!

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 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…
