We might first think of the sounds we make coming out of our mouths, but our true voice is much more.Much can be told about us when we speak.

Expressing Life to the Fullest

Theme for the Week of January 25: Individual Expressions of an Infinite Creator “This One manifests itself in and through all creation but is not absorbed by its creation.” – Ernest Holmes How are you expressing life? Your immediate thought might be that of the struggle of life and not feeling that is “expressive.” When we think of people expressing themselves it’s often through art forms like poetry, music, sculpture or painting. But we have our own unique expressions all the time.How is … [Read More...]


Creating Your Perfect Relationship

Are you happy with the relationships in your life? Or, do you crave to have different relationships than the ones you have? There are ways to expand our scope of associations and enrich the ones we already possess. One way is by practicing the concept that we are all truly “one.”Even with over seven billion people now roaming our planet, we are all basically the same. Yes, our skin or hair vary in tone or color; but none of that matters should we require a blood transfusion as long as the blo … [Read More...]


Suffer No More

How is this even possible? We see suffering all around us. But, could suffering be a manifestation of something else?Like the rest of our lives, what we considering to be suffering is often more about the attitude we have regard any given situation and less about the event or condition. To illustrate, read the two sentences below, both about one singular event:My mother abandoned my father and me when I was three. My mother left my father and me when I was three.Neither sentence … [Read More...]

Focusing Our Attention

Have you ever wondered why positive thinking doesn’t always seem to work? Do you understand the difference between “positive thinking” and “thinking positively?”First let me point out the first question includes “doesn’t seem to work,” not “doesn’t work.”  Positive thinking works exactly the same way as prayer, even the type of affirmative prayer developed by Religious Science founder, Ernest Holmes. Our answers can only be reached at our level of acceptance.Focusing our attention on one … [Read More...]


Accepting Our Good

Is there something lacking in your life right now? It could be any number of things:  a satisfying relationship, a better or new car, the job/career of your dreams, your bills paid and money in the bank. It could also be peace of mind, free from anxiety or depression.Our thoughts create our experience and we are responsible for the outcome. Many people balk at this, preferring to blame the Devil, the government, their parents or something else for their woes. Of course, no one plans a … [Read More...]



Are you easily distracted? I am if I’m not holding an almost constant vigilance with my purpose. I suppose it might have something to do with that ADHD thing.So, yeah, some guys in white coats feel I have this inability to effectively give my attention to what’s in front of me. My family might agree. No, my family DOES agree.I don’t. We can’t allow a diagnosis or opinion to be a reason to think less of ourselves or make it a defining point in our lives. For example, I’m tall, six foot two … [Read More...]


Healed Pain

Have you changed your Facebook profile picture to the French flag? Many have. Thousands have been affected from the recent losses in Paris. No loss should be minimized, but when we highlight tragedy of any kind we give it power and energy.That doesn’t mean we shouldn’t be informed. But it does beg the question of just how many times we have to watch the same video feed or listen to the same report. And, as in the case of the recent events in France, we can easily turn our backs on the many ot … [Read More...]
