The Grateful and Cheerful Receiver - Rev Cynthia McCarthy
Often people reference being a cheerful giver (2 Corinthians 9:6-7), but as we know from the Law of Circulation, giving and receiving is reciprocal ebb and flow of Yin and Yang. When we accept, we are in the flow as God gives to ItSelf as each of Its incarnating forms. Affirmation: I stand with my body and heart open to goodness and I know that there is nothing that separates me from the river of life that flows through me as I give and I receive.
God Is Not Motivated If You Aren’t - Rev Dr Bob Deen
“Man’s thought is the activity of Mind, for Mind without thought or directed consciousness would have no real existence. There can be no existence apart from consciousness; or, if there be any existence apart from consciousness, then there is no one, no thing, and no intelligence to be aware of such existence. It is evident that without self-awareness, there is not only no realization of Life, but no Life to be realized.” (Living the Science of Mind, 321)Affirmation: As I change my thoughts and beliefs, the world around me changes. My mind is the mind of God Itself.
How Engaged is God as Us? - Rev Dr Bob Deen
Life/Love/God/Spirit is living out its perfect Life as us. It is knowing more of itself as us. The only way that Spirit has of bringing forth our values for a World that Works for Everyone is through us.Affirmation: I am and will be a stand for love in this world, no matter who is listening. I am listening and I am engaged.
What Is God Giving You? – Rev Dr Bob Deen
God has already given us everything. It is our job to awaken to it. Life is fully supporting us at all times. Affirmation: I am so grateful that I am fully supported by God.
Divine Authority to Choose - Rev Dr Bob Deen
Often people speak of God’s Will as if the old anthropomorphic deity is still the one guiding, choosing, and leading us, when in truth it is saying yes to each of our choices!Affirmation: Today I choose wisely, compassionately, and decisively to express my authentic self in all that I do.
Bridges That Last – Rev Dr Bob Deen
Think of the world’s oldest bridges. What makes them last through the test of time? A good foundation, the right materials, an engineer inspired to build something that will last for centuries. The same can be said for building lasting, heart-felt and healthy relationships. Building bridges that last is the process of creating sustainable, collaborative community partnerships. Building a bridge for a world that works for everyone.Affirmation: I am an important part of the whole in a world that works for everyone. Who I am makes a difference.
