“I Sense The Good In Me”

Great teachers like Martin Luther King, Jr. sensed the good in everyone.  He knew that if he appealed to people’s sense of highest good that the apparent limitations of the world could change.  Likewise, we look inside ourselves to know the highest and the best – it’s God talking to god, Good talking to good, in every moment.  Join Rev. Martha at 11:00 a.m. as we celebrate Martin Luther King Jr. and we continue to read from this quarter’s book, Know Yourself!  You are More Than You Think.

I Pray In and For This Dream

Rev Martha Quintana, Senior Minister

Rev Martha Quintana, Senior Minister“And so even though we face the difficulties of today and tomorrow, I still have a dream. It is a dream deeply rooted in the American dream.” – Martin Luther King, Jr.

I Have a Dream that calls forth the most powerful Energy there is – God.  I speak Its name and It calls forth Itself in Its Entirety.  It comes forth in all ways and always because It holds nothing back.  It is Everything – Freedom, Grace, Peace, Love, Harmony, Pure Goodness and Pure Faith.  It holds nothing back.

It holds nothing back from me.  I am born of this freedom, this energy, grace, peace, and love.  The spirit that animates my body is the direct impress of everything that has ever been and everyone my family has ever been.  Yet, I’m unique – made in the image and likeness of a Divine so pure and loving.  I am the only me. 

I step forward in consciousness, in this freedom because I am the evolution of my family and of humankind.  I am the evolution of the greatest yet to be and so I lend my voice to all of the prayers that have gone before me.  I pray for the equality that brings peace.  I pray for a time when every child goes to bed safe, fed and loved.  I pray for a time when we rejoice at the weddings of every couple, whether they be hetero- or homosexual.  I pray that the injustice based on the color of someone’s skin, on their gender, or on their sexual preference is eliminated and instead we all live in harmony.  I pray that we celebrate the human race and that we treat each other with the love and peace that is God.  There is only one race and it is human. 

I am so grateful to live in these times and to know that each of us is the perfect evolution of our humanity.  I am so grateful to my brothers and sisters who walk the spiritual path with me at the Rio Grande Center for Spiritual Living and in Science of Mind all over the world.  I appreciate the kindness and love I meet in my life and I am grateful each time I see God staring back at me from the eyes of another.  Life is good.  And so I let it be.  And so it is.  Amen. 

Rev Martha Quintana is Senior Minister at the Rio Grande Center For Spiritual Living, Albuquerque, New Mexico.

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.

VISION Connecting Community Through Spirit!

MISSION 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…
