August 2022 Daily Guides by Rev. Dr. Kenn Gordon |
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. Rev. Dr. Kenn Gordon takes us back to his early days and how he began to appreciate the spirituality he learned in his youth. It is a spirituality based on love, family, community and a shared awe of life itself. It is the very foundation of who he is today.
The Most Important Relationship
Affirmation: I live in constant awe and know I am part of God’s magnificent creation.
Nature is the reflection of the infinite intelligence of life. It is a blueprint for those who choose to emulate spirit in their actions and deeds. Nature mirrors everything that represents the human condition.
Tenacity, resilience, abundance, creativity, love, light, power, beauty and awe lie before anyone who chooses to
take a conscious glance. A tree growing from a rock. A species adapting to climate change. The infinite preponderance of grains of sand on a beach. The myriad patterns in a snowflake. A mother caring for offspring. The sun rising every morning.
The power of a tsunami. The beauty of watching icebergs flow or the jaw-dropping vista of the Grand Canyon. It is all there if you dare choose to open yourself to its magnificence.
For more than 60 years, I have been reflecting on this wonder, and I have not yet discovered an instance where it hasn’t correctly and definitively represented our own potential. For more than 30 of those years, I have been using this marvelous tool to construct messages of hope and truth.
It is all there in its own divine simplicity.
Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better.
— Albert Einstein
That we must go the way of the Law is a fundamental tenet of this science, because Nature obeys us as we first obey It, and our obedience to It is our acceptance of It.
— Ernest Holmes, “The Science of Mind,” page 38
