Our Foundation Spiritual Principles:


  • G-d is Absolute Good, everywhere present.
  • Every human being is an expression of the divine; the Christ Spirit, by whatever name, indwells all people. Their very essence is of G-d, and therefore they are also inherently good.

  • Human beings create their experience by the activity of their thinking. Everything in the manifest realm has its beginning in thought.

  • Prayer is creative thinking that heightens the connection with G-d-mind and therefore brings forth wisdom, healing, prosperity and everything good.

  • Knowing and understanding the laws of life, also called Truth, are not enough. A person must also live the Truth that he or she knows.

Weekly Message for April 18, 2021


               "Stillness is the greatest revelation." - Taoist proverb

               From Nona L. Brooks "The Prayer That Never Fails" ..."Scientific prayer is affirming with lips and life, fundamental realities, until we establish the attitude of unwavering faith in Life, the abundant life; in Health, persistent wholeness of body; in Supply, unlimited supply for every need; in Companionship, unchanging love within one's self and in others for one's self. The most powerful prayer is the established attitude, for then one's every thought and feeling embodies such certainty of good and such assuredness that - it is so. The established attitude is the prayer that never fails."

              I was called upon to do healing work for an individual that I have not seen in more than a couple of decades. Even back then, I was barely acquainted with this individual, but the person who requested my services seemed so sincere that I accepted the call. Now, before I or any professional in the healing arts works with someone, that person must personally request the service. This interview with the client is always brief as I do my work in absentia and the less I know of the issue to be addressed, the better. In other words, I don't need to know what is wrong. I only need to know what aspect of their life they desire a greater, more joyful experience from, be it their health,  their financial situation, or relationship  issue. The Intelligence that heals is all-knowing. Our work is the ask knowing that it is given, no matter what the condition the client may find themselves in. Anyone called to healing work must have this established attitude that Nona Brooks refers to.

             This particular individual did not take more than a breath after my introduction to make some very negative comments about someone that we both knew. Someone I knew far better than him and someone that I was close to and respected. This felt like being on a row boat and someone grabs your  oar and throws it in the water and you know you were the only one that was rowing. It was a very disruptive feeling at a time when such a thing was unnecessary and certainly did not pertain to the healing work at hand. I prayed for my mind to be silent, and stillness resulted. The situation was a challenge to my established attitude that prayer, that is scientific prayer, would be effective in this case.

              At all times, we must know to the degree that is possible for us, that an all powerful and loving Intelligence is around and within us. When in doubt, or if fear attempts to take hold of our mind, we must retreat to the silence and know that nothing and no thing is more powerful than this omnipotent, omniscient, omnipresent Intelligence that is within us, above us, below us, and pressing against us. It is, therefore I am established in the attitude that my prayer never fails. Please don't fail your prayers by speaking about those things that hold you in bondage to the very thing that contradicts this Intelligence.        

Keep the Faith!
