October 2020 Daily Guides by Rev. Dr. Jesse Jennings |
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.
It’s a tradition. Each October, the anniversary month for the magazine, Rev. Dr. Jesse Jennings curates Daily Guides straight from our founder, Dr. Ernest Holmes. On the first day of the month, they express an affinity for the truth of our unity from Holmes’ book “Words That Heal Today,” published in 1949.
All Together Now
Affirmation: I allow the divine wholeness to flow through me into ever-widening fields of activity.
I f we had to search for God, where would we go? If we had to find the Kingdom, in what direction should we look? The Illumined One said the Kingdom is within. This Kingdom is already established even though we have not discovered it. Life has made a gift that we have not accepted.
There is an interior reality to everything. A divine pattern is hidden in everything. There is a unifying Presence and Law at the center of everyone and everything, a unity that binds all together in one common source, one living Spirit, one divine Presence. Each is a unique manifestation of this One. The One wears many faces but behind the mask of each is the coordinating unity of all.
Jesus implies that no one can enter the Kingdom of God without desiring to take all others with him, for he said, “I was hungered and ye gave me meat; I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink; I was a stranger, and ye took me in; naked, and ye clothed me. I was sick, and ye visited me; I was in prison, and ye came unto me.”
The Kingdom of God he invites us to enter is that realm of pure Spirit that includes everyone. It is a unity of good. It is one of the supreme tests of the integrity of our spiritual conviction that we desire and permit this inclusiveness.

There is but one ending place for all human faith — God.
