Welcome to November! November brings with it exciting times. Fall is just about done displaying its awesome colors for us, days are shorter. I don’t know about you, but excitement for the coming holiday season always begins for me at the beginning of November. I am especially excited about our Global Vision theme this November. As a reminder, we follow the Global Vision that many other Centers for Spiritual Living are following. This means that no matter where you go and what Center you attend, your chances of hearing about the same topic are very good, because we are all talking about the same thing.
For this entire year, we’ve been celebrating 100 years of Science of Mind. This month our topic is one of my personal favorites: Freedom from Fear and Error Thinking.
For me, error thinking is mistaken thinking. Just as sin is viewed in our tradition as simply a mistake, we sometimes make mistakes in our thinking as well. Luckily for us, we have many spiritual tools that help us to transform our thinking. And fear; well fear can be viewed as Face Everything and Recover, or False Evidence Appearing Real, or Forgetting Everything about Reality. And one last acronym: Forget everything and Run. I don’t know about you but I’d like to remember the truth about who and what I am, and replace that fear with love and correct thinking.
I hope you will join us on Monday nights, which is when we meet. We call it Monday Night Musings and we meet on Mondays at 5 pm at A-to-Zen in Carson City, 1803 North Carson Street.
Here is a list of topics we will be discussing each week. Please note, there will be no meeting on November 12.
