March message from your minister!
March brings with it a lot of promises: spring, warm weather to come, new life! To usher in March we will be talking about the Divine all month. More specifically, we will be talking about the Divine within you. What would your life be like if you knew, in your heart space, that God was within you?
Does the idea of God’s will and your will being in alignment frighten you? Or does it empower you?
Do you live a life of being rooted in the Divine, or somewhere else?
These are some of the questions we will be exploring this month at The Center in Carson City for our Monday Night Musings.
Our anchor theme for the year is 100 Years of Science of Mind. YES! We are celebrating 100 years of this wonderful teaching that brings joy and peace to the lives of so many. Our book for the year is Living the Science of Mind, by Ernest Holmes. You can read along as each discussion corresponds with a section in the book.
Here are the pages for each week:
March: You are Rooted in the Divine
Your Personal Self (Pg.116) 3/4 Your Highest and Best is your Personal Self….or…where are you rooted?
Your Impersonal Self (Pg.130) 3/11 You are rooted in the divine
God’s Will (Pg.136) 3/18 Thy Will? (think: “My life is the life of God. Therefore, Divine wisdom, clarity and power guides and directs me and I am free.”
Self-Evident Truth within You (Pg.141) 3/25

I hope to see you on Monday nights at 6 PM at A-To-Zen, 1803 North Carson Street, for our Monday Night Musings open discussion group!
Can you believe it is February already? And even though we haven’t had much of a winter I’ve got spring fever, and I’m ready to go camping! How about you? You can join us for our annual Death Valley Camping Retreat! This year it is scheduled for March 6-8. All the details are in the flyer, I hope to see you there!
And….I’m so excited about this month’s theme of Self Awareness Is Not Enough. Our Monday night gatherings are going to be rich and full, beginning with TONIGHT’s discussion of What is Religion. Basically, religion, according to Ernest Holmes, is about your attitude towards God. And if we are self aware, I’m sure we can all find ways to deepen and enrich our attitude towards God. Join us tonight for a discussion of one such way: inner communion. For the rest of the month we will be talking about self awareness in terms of spirituality, faith, belief, desire, revelation, desire, opinion and prayer. WHEW! Lots there to contemplate for sure. The beautiful thing about showing up on Monday nights is shared wisdom, and community with like minded people. It’s a safe place to discuss ways to enrich our attitudes towards God, or what spirituality means to each of us, and how that shows up in our life. It is time to examine: just how powerful and large is your faith? Could it be more? Are there any beliefs limiting your life? What do you desire, and what does prayer and revelation have to do with that? And how does self awareness fit into this rather large picture? I hope you will join us on Monday nights at 6 PM, at A-to-Zen, at 1803 North Carson Street in Carson City.
Did you know the 3 spiritual practices that will enrich your life right now? They are forgiveness, gratitude and tithing. You can tell when forgiveness is needed in your life, because the flow of good will be blocked. Focus on things for which you are grateful and you will get more. Tithing is a powerful spiritual tool that is also fun to do, and quite rewarding! I hope you will consider participating in your own spiritual enrichment by donating now.
