“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!

My Deepest Desires Are Already Made Manifest
Rev Martha Quintana, Senior Minister
There is One Life and readily apparent everywhere I look. It is the rising sun this morning, the air that I breathe, and the movement of every living, sentient being everywhere. This One Life is Perfect. It is Grace, Love, Happiness, Good Health, Abundance, Respect – It is the Creator and the created. There is no place where Life is not. Life is everywhere.
This morning, It is seated right here in my chair as me. It lives in, as, and through me. It sees all that I see and thinks all of my thoughts. It creates me, as I create, too. I am that life, and I, too, am grace, love, happiness, good health, abundance, respect. I am the creator of my life and I am the created. As I know this for me, I know this for everyone who reads this prayer.
On this morning, I speak directly to that part of me that is longing for Life, that part of me that longs to see beauty wherever I look, that longs to know life in the deepest, most passionate way. I speak to her and say, “I affirm you exist!” I affirm that all of my deepest desires are already coming to fruition. I know this because I could not have the desire without its inherent fulfillment. I could not desire something so deeply and passionately without a way to fulfill. It is the way of Life to give me the desire I have arrived on the planet to have. It is already done and I’m so grateful.
On this morning, I give thanks for this beautiful life and my beautiful part in it. I am grateful for the opportunity to love and live more deeply. I am so happy that I can surrender my ego and make way for a larger experience. It’s the way of life and I am happy.
I simply release this prayer and know it is done.
And so it is.

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…
