If you do not change direction, you may end up where you are heading. -Lao Tse
Fact Check: Pluto was discovered in 1930, and makes one full turn on its axis in 6.5 days. It takes 248 years to orbit the Sun, and has not completed an orbit since its discovery. These facts were stated incorrectly in our talk, but even so, If you're having a bad day, be thankful you don't live on Pluto...

Our job is to stand in the midst of what appears to be hell and proclaim heaven. It is not to deny the appearance of hell. – Kathy Hearn
Sunday Message, October 8, 2023
“Spirituality does not come from religion. It comes from the soul. We must stop confusing religion and spirituality. Religion is a set of rules, regulations, and rituals created by humans which were supposed to help people spiritually. Due to human imperfection religion has become corrupt, politically divisive, and a tool for power struggle. Spirituality is not theology. It is simply a way of life, pure and original as given by the Most Hight. Spirituality is a network linking us to the Most High, the universe, and each other.” -Haile Selassie I
Sunday Message, October 1, 2023

Sunday Message, September 10, 2023
It is amazing how many people are ashamed of their body and how few of their minds.
Sunday Message, September 3, 2023
Because we fail to realize that Principle is not bound by precedent, we limit our faith to that which has already been accomplished, and few “miracles” result. When, through intuition, faith finds its proper place under Divine Law, there are no limitations, and what are called miraculous results follow. - Ernest Holmes
Sunday Message, August 27, 2023
There must be imbalance for us to experience life. There would be no flow, or stimulation to the senses without imbalance/vibration. Maybe what we’re actually seeking is not absolute balance, but a more controlled equilibrium of imbalance.

"My mind is a center of Divine operation. The Divine operation is always for expansion and fuller expression and this means the production of something beyond what has gone before, something entirely new, not included in past experiences, though proceeding out of it...in my own special world, of which I Am the center, it moves forward to produce new conditions, always in advance of any that have gone before.”
Sunday Message, April 9, 2023
Continuing our study of how Ernest Holmes developed this Spiritual Philosophy, and the factors that influenced his evolution of awakening his True Self within. Holmes wasn’t taking on beliefs of others as much as new influences were sparking an individual, logical process within him.

-Nothing can bring you peace but yourself. Nothing can bring you peace but the triumph of principles.
-Nothing external to you has any power over you.
-Great men are they who see that spiritual is stronger than any material force, that thoughts rule the world.
-Ralph Waldo Emerson
Sunday Message, March 26, 2023
Do not believe in anything simply because you have heard it. Do not believe in anything simply because it is spoken and rumored by many. Do not believe in anything simply because it is found written in your religious books. Do not believe in anything merely on the authority of your teachers and elders. Do not believe in traditions because they have been handed down for many generations. But after observation and analysis, when you find that anything agrees with reason and is conducive to the good and benefit of one and all, then accept it and live up to it. -The Buddha
Sunday Message, March 19, 2023
There are no finalities in any science, any philosophy, or any religion. Through the continual emergence of the creative Principle any last finality proves to be but the beginning of a new creative series. This eternal spiral, finding its base in the everlasting Reality, will never cease to emerge.
Sunday Message, March 12, 2023
No matter how we may regret what happened yesterday, it is impossible actually to live it over again; but too often in imagination, we do live it over again and again, and in so doing bring all the misery of yesterday into today. Learn to forget yesterday. -Ernest Holmes
Sunday Message, March 5, 2023
Man is the master of his fate because he is the master of his attitude. No more effort is required to aim high in life, to demand abundance and prosperity, than is required to accept misery and poverty. -Napoleon Hill

Sunday Message, January 15, 2023
The Thing (God) works for us by working through us, and is us, always. It cannot work for us in any other way. It spreads Itself over the whole universe and shouts at us from every angle, but It can become power to us ONLY WHEN WE RECOGNIZE IT AS POWER. -Ernest Holmes

YOU are powerful beyond your own understanding of your Power. Each of us is powerful beyond our present awareness of the Power within us.
Sunday Message, December 11, 2022
We see the Divine Creative Process played out metaphysically in the lives of Joseph, Mary and Jesus. As we look at each of these characters metaphysically, metaphorically, and symbolically, we can reach a much deeper understanding of Life in general, and how we live and create with, and as, God in our human experience.
Sunday Message, December 4, 2022

Sunday Message, October 9, 2022
We are God expressing beautifully and perfectly through us into the world around us. We are a conduit of God-Energy. How often do you see your inherent perfection playing out into your environment? Life does not come TO us from our environment; Life flows through us INTO our environment, and we experience the result of what has manifested from, through, and as us.

“Be ye transformed by the renewing of Your Mind.”
Sunday Message, August 14, 2022
The purpose of the teachings of Jesus was to teach us How To Live simultaneously on all three planes of life; the physical, intellectual and spiritual, and to understand the deeper meaning of Life. His use of parables requires us to look at his teachings metaphysically, to make personal correlations to Universal Truths.

Finding the Christ Nature in the teachings of Buddha
Sunday Message, July 3, 2022
Sunday Message, June 26, 2022
Our individual subjective mind has knowledge that surpasses our objective faculties; or: our subconscious mind has knowledge that surpasses the understanding of our conscious mind. This is so because our subconscious contains all our personal experiences, and has access to the One Mind of all ideas and experiences.
Sunday Message, June 19, 2022
Happy Father's Day!
The only God man knows is the God of his own Inner Life; he can know no other… This does not mean that man is God; it means that the only God that man knows is within, and the only life man has is from within. God is not external but is indwelling, at the very center of man’s life… The great mystics like Jesus have taught that as we enter into the One, the One enters into us and becomes us and is us. -Ernest Holmes
Sunday Message, June 12, 2022

Ernest Holmes titled Chapter Fifteen of The Science of Mind "Physical Perfection Concluded" but such an expansive concept can never really be 'concluded' so we are calling it "Physical Perfection Continued..."

(God is) Not a Being with parts, but BEING with potentialities.
Sunday Message, February 6, 2022
The first great discovery man made was that he could think. This was the day when he first said, “I am.” This marked his first day of personal attainment. From that day, man became an individual and had to make all further progress himself. From that day, man had to work in conscious union with Life. -Ernest Holmes
Sunday Message, February 6, 2022
We create the same way God does because we are of the same Essence, and use the same Principle.
Sunday Message, January 23, 2022
One of the great difficulties in the new order of thought is that we are likely to indulge in too much theory and too little practice. -Ernest Holmes
Sunday Message, January 16, 2022
The mind must conceive before the Creative Energy can produce; we must supply the avenue through which It can work. It is ready and willing. It is Its nature to spring into being through our thought and action.
Sunday Message, January 9, 2022
Our belief sets the limit to our demonstration of a Principle which, of Itself, is without limit. It is ready to fill everything, because It is infinite. So, it is not a question of Its willingness, nor of Its ability. It is entirely a question of our own receptivity. -Ernest Holmes
Sunday Message, January 2, 2022
The study of Science of Mind is a study of First Cause, Spirit, Mind, or that Invisible Essence, that ultimate Stuff and Intelligence from which everything comes, the Power back of creation – The Thing Itself.

Celebrating Grandparents Day
Any evidence of fear in our thought, whether it is large or small, can have subtle and far-reaching consequences. You can find a freedom from fear, and you can discover the ways and means to achieve more of what your heart desires. The journey can be made, the goals can be achieved. But it is something that no one else can do for you, for the attainment rests in the processes of your won thought. -Ernest Holmes

Man is mind, soul, and body - mental, spiritual, and physical - fused into coordinated individuality, and we can understand ourself only from the larger viewpoint.

You have wings. Learn to use them and fly. -Rumi
Only YOU know your right way. To make the right choices in life, you have to get in touch with your soul. To do this, you need to experience solitude, which most people are afraid of, because in the silence you hear the truth and know the solutions. -Deepak Chopra
Based on the poem 'I Am There' by James Dillet Freeman
Wake up! Your word is all-powerful, your consciousness is one with Omnipotence. Your thought is infinite. Your destiny is eternal and your home is everlasting heaven. Realize the truth – I am living in a perfect universe. It always was perfect and always will be perfect. There never was a mistake made, there are no mistakes being made, and there never will be. I live in the great and eternal universe of perfection from cause to effect, from beginning to end, and “The world’s all right, and I know it.”
- Ernest Holmes
We need to be careful and vigilant about our predominant thought patterns, knowing we are free to spew whatever we wish into the unified pool of consciousness, and what we emit will attach to, and attract like energies.
The truth is that we live in a lavish and abundant universe, in which everything we could ever want or need can be and will be provided to us. And if we don't lay hold of what God provides,
that's not God's fault. It's ours.
- Edwene Gaines
