The Universal Power is I

What good is the belief in a power greater than me if I can’t use it effectively?  This is a question I have continually asked myself.  I see that we come equipped with everything we need to live a happy and prosperous life but sometimes we just don’t believe it.  Sometimes we feel that the special equipment or secret handshake was given out to everyone else but us.   It’s not true!  Join Rev. Martha on Sunday as we know the Universal Power that is All of Us.

I Light the Candle of Faith and No Longer Curse the Darkness

Rev Martha Quintana, Senior Minister

Rev Martha Quintana, Senior Minister

Life Is.  Life is everywhere equally present and no matter the appearance, it is there – tucked into those quiet places, bursting forth in the form of a flower, quietly contemplating as a thought, beating a heart, beaming through the sunlight, breathing that last breath as the soul takes leave of a body.  Life.  It is Perfect.   It is Good and my Good is Alive. 

It is who I am.  I am alive in its Goodness and I live in its Light.  Every aspect of my being is part of that perfect energy that forms my body and gives me life.  It is called Holy Spirit, God, Essence, The Thing Itself, Reality and so much more.  Whatever it is called, I call it forth by my recognition of Its Essence, and I align so perfectly with It that I cannot deny anything about It or me.  I am bursting with life and possibility.  As I know this for me, I know this for every person that reads this prayer.  Each one is a pure possibility of Life’s Essence – of this, I’m sure.

Knowing this, I affirm and declare life.  I light the candle of faith and no longer curse the darkness.  Wherever there appears to be sadness, joy replaces it.  Wherever there appears to be lack or limitation, abundance replaces it.  Wherever there appears to be illness, health replaces it.  Life’s potential takes over and resources arrive that support every project the Rio Grande CSL undertakes that is for the highest and best. 

I am so grateful.  I am so thankful for all the people who call our spiritual community their spiritual home.  I am so happy that all is well and all is done. 

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.

Rio Grande Center for Spiritual Living

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…
