Mind and Addiction

This past week, actor Philip Seymour Hoffman was found dead in his home, reportedly with a needle in his arm and evidence indicating he had suffered a heroin overdose. By the time this blog is posted, many details and more will probably be confirmed, but it was a sad ending for a man who, by [Read More...]

Snarky, Snide and Sarcastic

We all have our unique ways of expressing ourselves. We can also make ourselves pretty miserable trying to get others to express themselves the same way. Ashleigh Brilliant once wrote that “I need a map of your mind to avoid the most dangerous areas.” Wouldn’t that be helpful! Some people have a very off-the-wall sense [Read More...]

How to Use It

For the last few weeks we’ve been exploring the introductory chapters of the Science of Mind by Ernest Holmes. We know what “It” is, we know how “It” works, but now we’re down to the nitty gritty: how exactly are we to use this Thing. When people approach me about a change they want to [Read More...]

Les Mis Finale Through New Thought Ears

What is it that opens your heart? For me, often the answer is music. There are some melodies that are hauntingly beautiful. When they are accompanied by exquisite harmonies and inspiring lyrics, that music opens the floodgates of my heart and touches something deep inside my soul. I see evidence in our community that I [Read More...]

Exposed

I’ve been feeling extremely vulnerable lately. It started last Thursday when I got sick with bronchitis and could not to go to work; I’m still recovering. I’m not used to feeling sick or at least so sick that I can hardly move, let alone trying to do all the things I normally do on a [Read More...]

Science of Mind: What It Does

Years ago I used to spend a considerable amount of time in my other favorite church – and it’s one I’m sure many of you are familiar with, and many others may be members. The church was The Church of Skiing, and for years it was my weekend practice to be up on the hill [Read More...]

Do You Have a Dream?

I thought I’d risk being one of many people writing this week about Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Everyone pretty much knows the story of his life, his historical speech in Washington, D.C. and his tragic death. I don’t want to focus on any of those events. I want to focus on what allowed [Read More...]

The Way It Works

The other day as I was preparing this blog, a congregant came to me with her story of discovery. It wasn’t the first time by any means that she had seen ‘the Thing’ acting in her life, but as with everyone there are times when It seems more present than others – and this was [Read More...]

Every Thought Counts

Right now as this New Year is still shiny with possibility, many of us are turning to our interior skies to commune with what we know is our internal power that helps to create our reality. When Ernest Holmes, the founder of what would become the Centers for Spiritual Living, completed his seminal work The [Read More...]

It’s Time

With the arrival of all the New Year’s resolutions last week I’ve heard, more than once, “It’s about time I                         .” It’s about time. I got to thinking about that while I was listening to a program on NPR this past weekend about how time is inconsistent from one person to another. “HUH?!?” you [Read More...]
