June 2017 Daily Guides by Rev. Dr. David Goldberg | 

You Hold the Key »

The Daily Guides have always been a beloved section of this publication. Each month, new spiritual guidance is imparted by members of the Centers for Spiritual Living communities. It’s lifelong insight you can’t find anywhere but Guide for Spiritual Living: Science of Mind magazine.

Each day brings two quotes from various wisdom teachers, a personal guide from the author’s life and a powerful affirmation.

In case you don’t subscribe, here’s an example of what you’re missing.

On June 1, 2017, publisher and editor Rev. Dr. David Goldberg brings us into the silence to listen to the still, small voice of truth. And as we celebrate pets throughout the month of June, each day includes a quote about (or from) animals and how they touch our lives.


Affirmation: Today, I am awake and honor my direct connection to the Divine by listening to the still small voice within.

Like you, I engage in many practices as part of my spiritual work. I pray, meditate, walk the labyrinth, read and ponder, among other things. One of those other things is sitting in silence. The more I do it, the more I appreciate the power that comes with quieting my mind.

I spent three days alone in the Colorado Rockies years ago and later entered into a silent retreat in ministerial school. Both of those experiences were numinous and enlightening. I also find that when I allow myself to take an hour or even just five minutes, it serves me. For when we pray, we are often asking for something, whether for ourselves or others. And when we meditate or are silent, we are open to Spirit’s response to our human thoughts and words.

Sometimes when I think God isn’t listening, it’s really me who isn’t listening to God.


Until one has loved an animal, a part of one’s soul remains unawakened.

— Anatole France

The Christ always comes with power and might, awakened by the still, small voice of Truth.
